"Indeed, before God, I do not lie."
Text: Galatians 1:20
A SOLEMN DECLARATION
Paul knew that what he had shared was not well known. Thus he felt that he had to make the following declaration under oath.
(Now concerning the things which I write to you,
indeed, before God, I do not lie.)
Afterward I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
and I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea
which were in Christ.
But they were hearing only, ‘He who formerly persecuted us
now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy.’
And they glorified God in me.
