They glorified God (Gal. 1:24)

“They glorified God

Because of me.”

καὶ ἐδόξαζον ἐν ἐμοὶ τὸν Θεόν.

Paul said, “They glorified (καὶ ἐδόξαζον) God (τὸν Θεόν) because of me (ἐν ἐμοὶ).”  However, there was a good outcome.  These Jewish Christians glorified God because of the conversion of Paul.  They were happy to see that their tormenter had stopped tormenting them.  At the same time, they were even happier that he was preaching faith in Jesus Christ.  They rejoiced at Paul’s conversion and glorified God.  Do you glorify God when someone turns to Jesus Christ?
