7 Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God. 8 Crispus, the synagogue leader, and his entire household believed in the Lord; and many of the Corinthians who heard Paul believed and were baptized. Acts 18:7-8
It is implied that Crispus followed Paul to Titius Justus’ home. Having the synagogue leader convert was a very big deal. The Holy Spirit was clearly moving as Paul and the rest of the disciples spread the Word of God.
Crispus would have to answer for his new beliefs. As we all know, when the Spirit of God moves in your life, things begin to change. The Lord pinpoints areas that you need to work on. It doesn’t happen overnight but it could.
Recall that day when you first believed. What would it mean for you? Would people understand? What if people didn’t accept you anymore? And of course, what if it wasn’t as real as you thought it was?
For many of us, it’s been a long time since that first day. For someone like Crispus his whole world was about to turn upside down. Paul knew what that was like. He was the best person to tell Crispus about his own radical transformation.
Rejoice that your name is written in the Book of Life! Close your eyes and relive those days when your faith was brand new.
