You’re a Christian? Prove it.

I believe that being a Christian requires faith and actions. That’s not to say we’re not saved by faith alone — we are. But faith that saves us is never alone. Faith without actions is dead, and isn’t going to save anybody. With that said . . . .

A few weeks ago as I went to bed it occurred to me that there was absolutely nothing about my life that day – other than my job – that would have been Christ-like. I didn’t consider God at all in my day. I didn’t help anyone. I didn’t pray for anybody. It was a pretty selfish, Godless day. There was NOTHING about my life that day that was different than someone else who wasn’t a Christian. (I also believe that true Christianity should revolutionize your life; so this really bugged me).

I began asking myself almost every day, “Did you do anything today that would demonstrate Christ’s love in action?” or “Did you do anything today that any other ‘good person’ wouldn’t have?”

This has been a good check for me – and has caused me to seek God more than before. It’s also causing me to live more like I’m on a mission. Christians are — you know — on a mission. I’ll write more about this soon.

Tonight my pastor posed the question: If you were accused in court of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?

Ponder that. How is Christ changing your life?

  1. Clarification ^^^ I don’t mean to imply that the only actions that count are the actions that everyone sees. I’m talking about all actions – even when nobody is looking (including prayer or worship). In other words, you don’t have to be the outgoing person – I don’t want to misrepresent my own thoughts!

  2. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you simply could do with some p.c. to power the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

  3. Hello would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re
    utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good
    hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
