Saul Proclaims Jesus In Jerusalem
There are some Christians who are ashamed of their new found faith to the extent that they could not witness for Christ in the vicinity where they had been known as notorious sinner e.g. fornicator, liar, armed robber etc. Paul, after preaching in Damascus went to Jerusalem, having discovered the plot to kill him by the Jews. At Jerusalem, even the disciples were running away from him, but later got to know that he had become a disciple. It is true that your old sinner friends may not take you serious when you tell them that you are born again, but take your stand and they will later respect your decision for Christ and many will come to know Christ through you.
Point Of Emphasis: Friends of God tell their friends about God.
Prayer Point: God, help me to preach Christ and stand for you even if others do not believe me or take me serious.
