Being a Christian; a follower of Christ

Christ is not the bringer of a new religion, but the bringer of God. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Christ came
God sent Him
The gift
Our gift
of Christ
and eternal salvation
is God's love
God's grace
culminated at the cross.

We accept
His death
His burial
His resurrection
His Spirit
alive in us.

We follow
His Way
We read and study
His Holy Word
We obey
His Truths
We remember
His Promises
We seek
His Will
We are known
as Christians
for we are
followers of Christ.

But being a Christian
Is not just a word
to be added to a resume
or hung on a wall
Is not a denomination
Is not our own interpretation
of the Scriptures
Is not a denial of what God says
Is not listening to and believing
what people of the world profess
as truth, as real
Is not preaching falsehoods
Is not a license to kill, or be hateful
Is not living for your own selfish motives

Being a Christian
is about Jesus
and our walk,
our journey through life
with Him
as our guide
and teacher
and mentor
and friend
and judge.

Being a Christian
we follow Christ,
The Lord Almighty.

We share
His Love
for us
with every other.

"And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch."  (Acts 11:26)
"If anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God." (1 Peter 4:16)
