You go to church. You read your bible. You pray. You give to your church. You fast from time to time. You do charity work. You serve in your church. You are a good person. You are and good father, mother, brother, sister, friend, pastor, minister, deacon, deaconess, husband, wife and worker. DOES THIS MAKE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
I mean really, people classify christians by what they do. And christians classify non-christians by what they don’t do. We have been taught to get involved in our churches. You know exactly what I am talking about. In order to be a good christian, you have to do this and that. Your not a good christian if you don’t do this and that.
What is a good christian anyway? What does a good christian look like? I maybe going a little overboard. However I am trying to stress a point here. I am really trying to ask a serious question to bring out a point. But before I do, I want to say this.
We have a lot of miseable, tired, depressed, disappointed, delusional and beaten down christians. Not because they want to be, but because they are trying to be something they already are. They have or I should say we have fallen into the same trap Adam and Eve fell into when the devil enticed them to try to be something they already are.
So the question is, what makes you a christian? Here is the answer.
CHRIST IN YOU MAKES YOU A CHRISTIAN! Nothing else makes you a christian. Your are a christian because Christ lives in you. Not what you do. So know who you are and walking in that knowledge and watch sign and wonders follow you instead of the other way around
