use your testimony

Galatians 1

Observations

  1. God vs. Man
    v1
    not of or by men
    v10
    not to persuade or please men
    v11
    not after man
    v16
    conferred not with flesh and blood
  2. Glory to God

    Verses 5 and 24 are like Romans 16:27.

  3. Preach Him

    Verses 15 and 16 show that it pleases God for us to preach Him.

Key

v13-15 are like 1 Corinthians 15:8-10. Like me, Paul sinned, but there was grace.

v16-23, especially v23:

But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
The testimony is about "once, in times past..., but now...". I once destroyed and persecuted in times past, but now preach the faith.

v24 God gets glory in me by this kind of testimony.

Application

I'll use my testimony when I write to some people to preach the gospel to them. mp3 file
