Galatians 1:11-24

I was acquainted with her as the sister of a friend from high school. She was younger and I knew that she had been adopted shortly before we first met. Years passed and one day I encountered her and her adoptive mother. We chatted for a bit. She had recently graduated from high school and had plans to start college in the fall. The awkward and shy girl I had known had become a confident young woman. I remarked on the change. “Do you want to see my ‘before’ picture?” she asked as she pulled out a wallet and flipped to a small school picture. It showed a small girl with frazzled hair and a blank expression. “Is that you? Was that before you were adopted? Wow, I wouldn’t know you were the same person,” I remarked. Her mother beamed as she nodded, “I wasn’t. It was before I knew Christ and how much God loved me.” “That is wonderful. I am so happy for you,” I responded. I will never forget her wonderful story of transformation.

The world may reject Christ and mock his followers, but the testimony of a transformed life always gives praise to God.
