Can you imagine what was going through James and Peter’s minds when Paul first came to meet them in Jerusalem? It had been over three years since Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, but I’m sure they looked upon him with great apprehension. They could see the man that persecuted Christian’s, dragged them from their homes, threw them into prison, and happily watched as Stephen was stoned, but they couldn’t see his heart. So many children look up to athletes as role models because of their muscular bodies and athletic skill without knowing what’s in their heart. Too many adults blindly follow whatever so called celebrities say because of their beauty and acting talent, not caring what is in their hearts! Aren’t you glad God isn’t that way? He doesn’t care how good you look on the outside, how good your actions and benevolence appears to others, He cares about your heart. Where would we all be if He didn’t? 1 Sam 16:7 says it all. “For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” The last thing the Apostles saw in Paul was a world changing evangelist, but that didn’t matter because God did! What does He see in you?
