Jacob Broom, one of the signers of the United States Constitution, wrote his son who was off to college at the time saying, “Don’t forget to be a Christian.”
Just think about that statement for a moment. “Don’t forget to be a Christian.”
If we are honest with ourselves, how often do we forget that we are a Christian? We aren’t loving to others, we think we are better than others, we tell little “white lies”, we hold bitterness against people, we curse, we say things we shouldn’t, we watch things we shouldn’t, and so on. We can have the knowledge of what it means to be a Christian in the world, we can have Scripture memorized, and we can go to church three or more times a week, but if we forget to be a Christian, it’s all in vain.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10), and wisdom is knowledge in action. So as you go out about your day, don’t forget to be a Christian!
