On the 10th of April 2011, I produced a video. I was just getting over a bad bout of the Flu and was using a cheap webcam with dodgy lighting. However, the message was clear: Is being a Christian good enough?
It’s one thing to call yourself a true Christian, but is that enough?
More than being a Christian, you must also be a true Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, a true Student of his teaching, by being truly born again into a new life through the power of God the Holy Spirit. John 3:1-21.
And you wont be born again until you love and obey the Lord Jesus Christ. John 14:23. Why, because unless you do truly love Him, his Father and He will not come and make their “home” with you.
You will simply be a Christian without a living relationship with God. Who says so? His Father God! John 14:24.
Therefore, do not be surprised that so many “Christians” act wickedly and selfishly in the World today, and in the past?
I use to think that I was being rejected by Christians. But now I think that in fact, it is the Lord Jesus who lives with me and is sharing the treatment that I receive from certain Christians, who is rejecting them.
John 2:23 Now while he [Jesus] was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name. [or in him] 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. 25 He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.
Be certain of this, the Lord Jesus Christ knows what is in your heart towards him. He knows if your Christianity is just a religion that you use for your own ends.
