A christian is not someone whose life is perfect, who has it all figured out and never makes any mistakes or faces any hurt or troubles in their lives. It’s not all just green grass, pretty flowers with butterflies and rainbows…
A christian is not someone that always needs to smile and wave… Put on a happy mask and tell the “word” that life is perfect. Being a christian is not the easy path, not in this world.. and especially not because of the image the world has about christians.
- As a christian not the strongest – you actually know that you are weak and that you alone under your own strength are not able to accomplish much.
- As a christian you are not the smartest – you have to acknowledge that you don’t have all or even any of the answers, that you constantly need to seek God, seek the Holy Spirit and pray for wisdom and answers
- As a christian you are not perfect – you acknowledge that you are far from perfect that you are and sinner and that you need a saviour, you know that you need to call on Jesus to save you to help you and to guide you every day every moment of every day
- As a christian you are not better than anyone – we know that we are all made in the image of God, all races, all languages, all colours and that God loves all of us, and would like to all of us to know Him
a Christian is not someone that attends church, even work in the church or spend all their time in the church it has little to do with what you complete on an application form when they ask “religion”. What does it mean if I tick that box on the application form anyway? If I was a real christian my life should reflect that and I would not need to tell anyone they would say to me… “you must be a christian”
What is a christian then…
