Being Christian…

Christian_580x326

Being a Christian doesn’t mean you were born in a Christian family like being a Russian if you are born in Russia.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean following a set of rules, like being a chef following a recipe.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean membership in a group like an elite club where you pay dues and fees.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean just being nice like a politically correct neighbor.

Being a Christian means that you love God and value the salvific act of Jesus as your personal salvation from sin and its consequences.

Being a Christian means you measure everything with the love of God and act upon it.

Try it…you’re meant to be a Christian.

“God, you are my God. I celebrate you. I praise you. You’ve done your share of miracle-wonders, well-thought-out plans, solid and sure. Here you’ve reduced the city to rubble, the strong city to a pile of stones. The enemy Big City is a non-city, never to be a city again. Superpowers will see it and honor you, brutal oppressors bow in worshipful reverence. They’ll see that you take care of the poor, that you take care of poor people in trouble, Provide a warm, dry place in bad weather, provide a cool place when it’s hot. Brutal oppressors are like a winter blizzard and vicious foreigners like high noon in the desert. But you, shelter from the storm and shade from the sun, shut the mouths of the big-mouthed bullies.” Isaiah 25:1 MSG

    Being a Christian means that you are filled with the living Christ — Christinated! (Not deChristinated.)
