But by the grace of God, I am what I am…
Popeye wasn’t the first to speak these words! It was Paul! Once a persecutor of Christians, Paul had become one of them. Once a skeptic of all things Christian, he became a believer.
It was the grace of God that made all the difference in his life. God’s undeserved love and forgiveness, given to him through Jesus, changed his direction and altered his view. The key to Paul’s faith was the resurrection. Since Jesus lives after death, we shall too. The resurrection has become the proof that God keeps his promises.
Paul made it clear why he was a changed man. He gave God the credit for who he is.
