Been With Jesus


"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived that they were ignorant and unlearned men, they marveled and took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13).

Can a greater compliment be paid to anyone than that which was given to Peter and John? They wanted to be of value in the Lord's kingdom and to do so they had to convince people that they were the real deal..That meant something that we need to understand today too...As we go about our Christian walk, is it apparent to all that we are Christians? To Peter and John it meant that folks commented that they had been with Jesus..It ought to mean much the same to us today...In that we are into Jesus through His Word and through the avenues of prayer and meditation, people ought to see Jesus in us...We need to try to connect with others through both word and deed. It appears that Peter and John showed their connection to Jesus through the way they spoke. Maybe we don't speak as succinctly as we would like, but that should not be an impediment. Our actions ought to speak decibels louder than our words...Being the sermon has always worked better anyway...Lets do our absolute best to present ourselves as Jesus' disciples...What a compliment it would be if our legacy included that ultimate compliment...We have been with Jesus....

Have a wonderful day....Make a difference.... Love mark Phil.4:11
