Usually, when an individual decides to connect or unite themselves with God it is their intent and desire to have a strong walk with Him. How can an imperfect human walk with an all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent God?
In our text, we find Paul after his conversion/transformation experience. As a result of Paul's conversion, he begins his fruitful journey with God. Yes, the man whose past was tainted by his unbecoming behavior has now been connected with the Almighty God. And we see from Paul's actions that consistency, courage, and character are needed in order to have a strong walk with God.
