How are you known? Did you just say Yes?



My morning began like this…

From this morning's devo. ..
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.—Acts 4:13 (NKJV)... as soon as you immerse yourself in the Word and prayer, trust me, you will be known for having been with Jesus."

How are you known?  How ARE you known? It’s a good question. From morning study to soundtrack for my dog walk, and…in a departure from the usual, I opted for a sermon instead of music. This sermon, where TD Jakes asks, how we are known? 

Are you known for your temper? For your talents? If you were to ask the people who know you, who see you regularly how they might describe you...what would people say first?
 
Confirmation might have been enough, but there was more to this word for me. He began by teaching that “Faith is a perspective.” Faith is a frame, through which and by which we deal with the world. My faith informs not only the way I approach the world, but the way I deal with myself. Well, at least that’s what I thought….but the question remains, while that might be what I believe…how am I known?

How about you? Maybe if we just say Yes...we'll be known as His.
