“Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.” —Acts 12:18
When the Lord is working in and through those He has saved through His marvelous grace, there will be evidence of His handiwork among the unsaved that are watching. Certainly, the soldiers witnessed God’s direct intervention into the life and circumstances of Peter as he was imprisoned by Herod. Yet, what continues to happen today, with greater significance than the divine disappearance of Peter from the prison, is the divine transformation that God works in the lives of His people; the evidence of His workmanship, conforming His children into the image of His beloved Son. Unbelievers may not like it (John 15:18); and they certainly won’t understand it (1 Corinthians 2:14); but, yes, there will be “no small stir among” those watching the Christian to whom God’s mighty hand rests.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” —Romans 12:2
