Someone once asked a penetrating question: If you were accused in court of being a follower of Jesus, would your behavior provide enough evidence to convict you?

In Acts 11, Barnabas was sent by the Jerusalem church leaders to the Antioch church in which the label “Christian” was first used.

When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. [Acts 11:23]

They didn’t have to tell him what was happening. He saw the evidence of grace in the behaviors and attitudes of believers.

I’m wondering if others see evidence of God’s grace in my behavior.

What do I need to change to make sure my attitudes, my responses to people, and my actions offer evidence of Jesus’ presence?
