"We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did." I John 2:3-6

This passage of Scripture reminds me of something my mother-in-law used to tell her children when they left the house. She often said, "Remember who you are." Those simple words contain a lot of meaning. She was possibly saying, "Don't forget to act in a way that represents our family well," "Remember all I've taught you," "Please don't embarrass me," or "Act like a Christian."
My actions reveal my true character. Actions tell others who I am. No one in my life sees this better than my children. They observe me at my best and at my worst. I claim to be a Christian. Is this what my children are seeing through my actions?
My prayer today is that I will walk the walk of obedience because I have precious young ones following me.
