"They recognized that they had been with Jesus." (Acts 4:13 ESV)
Without even going into the context, I can never read this verse without being moved...challenged...confronted by it.
I forces me to ask myself a very straightforward question...
"Do people recognize that I've been with Jesus?"
My honest answer is...sometimes. Sometimes I know I reflect Jesus in my actions or words. Other times, that's probably the
last thing people think of when they watch or hear me.
My desire is to spend enough time with Jesus each day so that my everyday life shows it. I want people to recognize that I've been with Jesus so they are moved to consider Him in their lives.
