What kind of impression do you make on someone?  After meeting you, do people know you have a relationship with Jesus Christ?

Recently, I was selling at a farmer’s market when a lady approached our produce booth.  She began asking questions about our produce, but all of a sudden she stopped and said, “I know you.”  I told her I didn’t think so, but she insisted that she did.  She then said, “You’re a Christian.”  I told her that I was.  She then proceeded to tell me that she knew where I lived and that she had been to my house.  By then I was starting to really worry.  I asked her what her name was.  When she told me, I remembered that I had met her approximately eighteen years ago through mutual friends.  We discussed how we knew each other and had a great time catching up.

I will admit, as she told me that she knew me and where I lived, I got very nervous.  Imagine someone coming and telling you these things and much more.  I was beginning to wonder if this was some crazy person because she seemed to know too much about me.

As I thought back on our conversation, I had to laugh.  Then I recalled her comment, “You’re a Christian.”  We met eighteen years ago.  While I do not feel that I was a strong Christian at that time, apparently I made enough of an impression that she remembered that I was a Christian.  This makes me wonder if I make that impression on others.  Do people know I’m a Christian by the way I act? I know I do not always approach situations in the most Christian manner.

Matthew 7:17,20

I keep remembering that saying that we may be the only “Christ” that some people see.  We must be aware of how we act and react to and around others.  I am not sure what I did all those years ago that made her realize I was a Christian.  I pray all who meet me see Christ in me and know that I’m a Christian!

What impression do you make?

Do other people know you are a Christian?
