“We’ve heard so much about you!”
No doubt you’ve heard someone say that when you’re meeting them for the first time.
And, at that moment, you’re probably wondering…
What exactly have you heard about me?
Is it good…bad?
What do people think when they hear about you?
It’s the kind of question that reminds us that all of our words and actions are basically on trial every day.
Our reputation is at stake…
But even more than that, God’s reputation is at stake if you call yourself a Christian.
Are you who you say you are?
When people hear about you, do they think more about what you’ve done with your life or what God has done in your life?
Have they heard that God is with you?
God wants to show Himself to people, and one way He does that is through the people who already know Him.
So, what have people heard about you?
Do your words and actions make people think that God is with you?
The truth is God wants to show Himself to the world through you.
He wants you to be known as a person who walks with Him, so that when people live life with you, they can learn how to walk with Him too.
Imagine what God could do through you if people heard that God is with you.
Perhaps they’d say something like what the prophet Zechariah recorded in chapter 8 of his book…
“Please let us walk with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” (Zechariah 8:23b)
