When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. – Acts 4:13

When people meet me, hear my words, see my actions is the first thing they think “this man has spent time with Jesus?” I wish that was the case, but I doubt it. So what do I need to do to make that true in my life? What will it take to be the type of man that when I meet someone new, that they take note that I have spent time with Jesus?

My Lord and Savior, I don’t want to be known for who I am but for who I am in You! I want people to take note when they meet me that I spend time with You! Lord grow me in to the man that You want me to be, help me to have the courage of Peter and John and speak Your truth, no matter the circumstances and consequences! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
