Read Romans 12:9(NKJV)—It is a small portion of what a Christian should be—written by God.
First of all, Christianity is not a religion. It is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God. There are no rituals to follow like many churches and cults do.
True Christians believe that Jesus is the only
Begotten Son of God, who was born from a virgin.
True Christians believe Jesus died for them
And rose again three days later; plus He ascended into heaven.
True Christians believe Jesus Christ is their personal Savior,
and they have a personal relationship with Him.
A true Christian is a follower of Christ.
Christ is the center of their life; and a true
Christian places Jesus first in their life.
True Christians love God with all their heart,
mind, soul, and strength.
True Christians live for Christ
and strive to be like Him.
True Christians let Jesus
work in their life.
True Christians love others
unconditionally as God loves us.
True Christians look for the good in everyone
God does not judge by outward appearance, neither should we.
True Christians believe that God is omnipresent
(always present, everywhere at the same time).
He is omnipotent (all powerful), and
Omniscient (knowing all things).
True Christians know that they may go
Directly to God in prayer. They don’t need an
Earthly intercessor. (Jesus is our intercessor).
True Christians bring Christ’s light into this world.
We may be the only Jesus that unbelievers see.
True Christians believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired
Word of God, which is our manual to living.
True Christians know that there is only one way
to our Father in heaven—through Jesus.
A true Christian is a child of God.
and a co-heir to Christ.
A true Christian wants to share Jesus with unbelievers,
so that they may be saved, too.
True Christians know they will live
with Jesus in God’s kingdom when they die.
I could write a book on who is a true Christian (this was just a sample). But God has already written the whole book of what a true believer is. (No one is perfect, only Jesus was; but we can strive to be more like Him.)
