Acts 26:4-7 “So then, all Jews know my manner of life from my youth up, which from the beginning was spent among my own nation and at Jerusalem; since they have known about me for a long time, if they are willing to testify, that I lived as a Pharisee according to the strictest sect of our religion. And now I am standing trial for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers; the promise to which our twelve tribes hope to attain, as they earnestly serve God night and day. And for this hope, O King, I am being accused by Jews.”
We do not start out as Pharisees, we begin as children. We become Pharisees as time in the strictest sect of our religion develops an attitude of “it has to be just so.” And “I can be just so”. What a change of heart for Paul! When adopted into Christ, Paul committed his life to proclaiming freedom in Christ. Paul accepted persecution willingly for His Savior as Paul knew Christ is worthy. Christ gave Paul hope. Paul had been operating on the “I need to do this myself” agenda for so many years that finally acknowledging the truth that he could not do righteousness liberated Paul to embrace His good, holy God. The promises of God were now fulfilled for Paul through the redeeming care of His Savior.
Paul longed for those enslaved to their own righteousness to attain the truth of God’s provision of life in Christ. He proclaims that God raises the dead. He admits that his hostility led him to punish many. He confesses that self-righteousness is characterized by anger and evil pursuits.
It took a bright light and the voice of God to catch Paul’s attention....👉🏻go to our blog (link in profile) to finish reading what @jodie.montgomery has to say!
