24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.
All of us have a life that we lived before we came to Christ. All of us made mistakes. Some of those mistakes were pretty bad. It does not matter how big of a change you go through there will be people who never let your past go. They will never forget who you were and will never look at who God has made you into. They will never listen to your testimony, but don’t let that stop you. God may have a place for you out of your hometown. He may lead you across the country. Sometimes, you have to leave the past along with your hometown.
