Acts 28:1-8

“He is a murderer.”

“Wait. He is a god.”

Two very different titles given to Paul within minutes of each other.

Paul’s reaction? He went on about God’s business. He didn’t allow the accusation of being a murderer keep him from preaching Jesus. Nor did he allow the statement of him being a god deter him from working miracles through Christ alone.

People will name you. They will try to figure you out. Sometimes they may be right. Sometimes they are way off. Even so we shouldn’t allow their perception of us dictate who we are or how we carry ourselves.

You are redeemed. You are a child of God. Your filthy rags have been traded in for righteousness. Live as such, regardless of others opinions.
