NIV Once-A-Day At the Table Family Devotional


• Share a time when someone knew you were a believer without having been told. What gave you away?
• Share a time when you knew someone was a believer without having been told by that person. How did you know?

How much can we learn about people by observing them? If we followed someone around for a day, we would quickly learn what food that person likes to eat, what music they listen to and what makes them laugh. We would be able to see what that person read, who their friends were and how they spent money. Before long, we would be able to give a full report on our subject.
What if someone followed you around for a day? What might they learn about you? What would your daily choices say about you? How long would it take your observer to figure out that you’re a Christian?

There’s an old expression that says, “If you were on trial for being a follower of Christ, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” What would you say to that? Is there evidence in your life that you have been transformed?

Dear God, thank you for changing our lives completely. Let us remember that we are always being watched by people who want to know what it means to be transformed by you. Amen.
