What is a Christian?

This question has had me on my knees crying out to God. Why, because the term “Christian” has lost its meaning. Anyone you talk to says they are a Christian.

Matthew 7:16-20
By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them”

What do you say when people ask what a Christian is? My first thought to this question is, if I could show someone what it looks like to be a Christian who would come to mind? There are two, Tim Tebow and Josh Hamilton.

The both know kindness and willing to take the extra mile for others because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

So it got me thinking, how would that conversation go if my friends were hanging out having a discussion over dinner and asked “What is a Christian?” Would they mention my name? Do they see Jesus Christ in me? Do they know what I believe and stand for?

Our lives are so much more then just going to church on Sunday, its a way of life.  Its living in a way that people can see there is something different about you.

Sidewalk Prophets say it very well. Take a listen to the words and ask yourself “Am I living like that?”My prayer that I can LIVE LIKE THAT!

“Focus on showing Christ’s love and allow the
Holy Spirit do the convicting”

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I’m only just a memory
When I’m home where my soul belongs

Was I love
When no one else would show up
Was I Jesus to the least of those
Was my worship more than just a song

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Am I proof
That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change a heart
Do I live like Your love is true

People pass
And even if they don’t know my name
Is there evidence that I’ve been changed
When they see me, do they see You

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
I’m longing for the world to know the glory of the King

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that
