What is to be a Christian?

” By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? ” Matthew 7:16

What is to be a Christian? Like the word says, beeing, To Be. It’s not just saying we are. It is Beeing, trough actions. A Christian finds his shelter in God. Is that your case? A Christian Acts accordingly with what he/she says. Is that what you do, or try to?

” Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned. ” James 5:12

A Christian reads the Bible with open heart and mind, seeking for Knowledge, comfort, Direction… Do you read the Bible? What do you seek? A Christian speaks with God everyday trough Prayer… Do you? Do You seek for Him in your everyday, in your highs and lows? A Christian tries to imitate Christ. He/She doesn’t try to be perfect… But tries Today to be a little bit better than yesterday. Today to Do a little bit more than yesterday. And if we fall… If we fail…

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matthew 7:24 to 27

How do we recognize a Christian? By it’s way of Beeing. Of Acting. By the way he/she deals with the storms in his/her life… By the way he/she Shares… Laughs… Cries…
Lives… Because the message of God is Life. And Life manifests itself… In so many different ways…

” (…) out of weakness were made strong (…) ” Hebrews 11:34

  1. … And Jesus told them : “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except trough me. ” (John 14:6) . Beeing a Christian is not a Religion… Or a cult… It’s a way of living, everyday, “Loving your neighbour as yourself, and God above all things”… Beeing a Christian is to know Christ and His Father, Our God…

  2. Despite what almost everyone thinks… Beeing a Christian is not to be perfect. That’s not even possible in our human condition. But it is possible to be perfected in flesh, like Jesus Christ was. By Giving, Praying, Thrusting… Because Battles will keep coming… What differentiates Men are not the choices, but the way we deal with the choices we make. What we Say and what we Do. Always by the fruits… Thank you for reminding us…

  3. be christian
    as we could be without knowing the one from which the name comes from ..
    That was it and that is it!
    that left us the example ..
    that it was before all things ..
    Jesus The Christ after being ..
    and for Christian to be .. I must be in all that he was … in all that is!
    to be!

    I.S.
