God’s people were respected

Acts 5:13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.

After seeing God deal with Ananias and Sapphira those that were not part of the church were afraid. They had seen that God was at work among His people.

Though they were afraid they highly respected God’s people and talked well of them. They told everyone that they could tell that something special was happening.

How I want to live in such a way that people will magnify the Lord Jesus. They may not like me but when they know me and see what God is doing they will have to acknowledge that God is at work.

I hope we make it a point to live in such a way that when they speak evilly of us that they will have to be lying. I hope that we desire to please Jesus enough that people who are looking on will have to be blessed and impressed.
