Being a Real Chistian
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? Matthew 16-24-26 (NIV)
It’s easy to call ourselves Christians, we do all the things that most Christians would expect, we go to church, we say public prayers, give offerings, go to a bible study once in awhile, and acting Godly, is that all what a christian does, is that all what a Christian is? If you think that’s all then you are dead wrong!
A christian is someone who embodies the will of Christ. A christian is someone who’s very character is an example of Christ. Far too often have I seen fellow Christians act like Christians in church, then act like a totally different person outside of church. A great danger that I have seen creeping into our lives is the danger of Christian’s becoming of the world, getting caught up in the society of the world and its principles. People are caught up in electronics, music, pop culture, and other very popular things that the world offers and tend to reflect a person of the world. That is not what a Christian should be, a christian is suppose to live in the world only, not be of the world, a christian should be a person who live for Christ.
If you want to learn how a Christian should really be, find your Bible and read about Jesus and you’ll find all that you need to know on how to be a Christan. As mention in the verse above, if you want to be a disciple of Jesus deny the pleasures that world offers you, take up the cross and follow Him, for it is better to live and die for Jesus then to live for yourself and die with nothing.
