When my father and I attended the same church convention, it was impossible to hide the fact that we are father and son. People repeatedly commented on the obvious physical similarities between us. Those who had known only one of us before the convention were able to quickly note that we are related. In fact, for most of my life I have heard people I just met make comments such as, “I know who your father is.”
I wonder if people can just as easily observe my connection with my Heavenly Father.

“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”” (1 Peter 1:14–16, ESV)
