"Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them."
When the disciples of John The Baptist came to ask Jesus if He was "He that should come" Jesus humbly told them of the things he had accomplished and let them decide for themselves. Jesus was known by His works.
I want to be known by my works also. People shouldn't need to ask if I am a Christian. I should live the life of a Christian so that by seeing what I do and listening to what I say people will know that I am a follower of "He that should come".
Yes... you will know a man by the fruit he bears. How we live reflects who we are in Christ more so than what we can claim to be. It is what sets us apart from the rest of the world. Well put. God bless you! Treava
