Stand Up For What Is Right

In Antioch Paul exhibits his integrity as a true minister of God’s Word.  Peter had been fellowshipping and eating with the Gentile believers before other Jews arrived.  In Paul’s own words, “Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision” (Galatians 2:11, 12).  What veracity, to stand up to one who had walked with Jesus and saw the fire of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost!  Paul stood up for what was right, not what was popular, comfortable or lucrative.  A lesson King Saul would have done well to learn.
