say Iím a Christian, Iím not shouting, ďIíve been saved!Ē Iím
whispering, ďI get lost! Thatís why I chose this way.Ē
say, Iím a Christian; I donít speak with human pride, Iím confessing
that I stumble, needing God to be my guide.
say, I am a Christian; Iím not trying to be strong, Iím professing that
Iím weak and pray for strength to carry on.
say, I am a Christian; Iím not bragging of success, Iím admitting that
Iíve failed and cannot ever pay the debt.
say, I am a Christian; I donít think I know it all, I submit to my
confusion asking humbly to be taught.
say, I am a Christian; Iím not claiming to be perfect, my flaws are far
too visible but God believes Iím worth it.
say, I am a Christian; I still feel the sting of pain, I have my share
of heartache that is why I seek His name.
say, I am a Christian; I do not wish to judge, I have no authorityóI
only know Iím loved.
What is a
The New Testament says,ďAnd the disciples were called Christians first
in Antioch.Ē --Acts 11:26 The Ďdisciplesí of the New Testament were
followers of the Teachings of Jesus. So, to truly be a ĎChristianí we
must live and practice Jesusí teachings.
Church membership does not make us Christian any more than owning a piano makes you a musician.
Spending a few hours in a mechanic shop does not make us a mechanic nor
does spending a few hours a week in church building make us a Christian.
Jesus said, ďIf you continue in my word, then you are my disciples
indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."
John: 8: 31-32
we look back and wonder how we ever made it thru the years, we realize
it's not because we've been clever.. but because God has been wise; not
because we've been strong... but because God has been
mighty; not because we've been
consistent... but because God has been faithful.
