Is It Obvious Who You've Been With?
Now when they saw the boldness and unfettered eloquence of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and untrained in the schools [common men with no educational advantages], they marveled; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus." It was obvious to them that these men had been with Jesus. Why? Because of what they said, how they carried themselves and what they did. Shouldn't it be obvious to those around us that we too have been with Jesus? Shouldn't everything we say and do indicate clearly who we serve and live for? Unfortunately all too often this doesn't happen. Christians are full of hypocrisy, speaking and acting no different from the world they live in. Many Christians will be inviting people to Easter services this weekend, but why would people want to go if they see no difference in the way we live from how they live? Live in such a way that it's unmistakeable who you've been with today :)
