What are Your Christian Beliefs Podcast
Do You Follow Your Christian Beliefs?
Many people will not call on Jesus, but you know having found Jesus is a beautiful thing. Your life seems to have meaning. You’ve seem to have found something that brings you great joy and happiness. If you were coping with loneliness, then you know that in order to overcome loneliness it takes Jesus Christ to fill your heart with His Love. Praise the Lord.
Anyone that has accepted Jesus into their heart is considered to be a follower of Jesus Christ. So, when anyone asks you, “Are you a Christian?”, certainly you’re going to reply “Yes, I am” because of your Christian beliefs. Just remember that there is a big responsibility in calling yourself a Christian.
One needs to know that in calling themself a Christian, they are representing the ministry that Jesus started. Not any of the churches that exist, but the ministry of Jesus Christ. The danger of this is, is that by not living up to the standards of what Jesus laid out for us to follow, we could very well bring God into contempt.
People are going to be people, and if they see the opportunity to make themselves feel good about themselves, they will. What it is, is that people like to point fingers.
And when it comes to religion, they will convince themselves of things like “Christians are a bunch of hypocrites”, “Christian beliefs conflict with each other”, and “Why would I want to become one of them” or look at the Catholic priests that are molesting little boys.
What about the Muslims? Certainly they’re not all terrorists, yet have one come around and people begin to judge them without even getting to know them. Understand what I’m trying to get at. People love dirty laundry.
It seems that the worse it is, the better for them. I’m definitely not denying that I haven’t been there myself pointing fingers. It seems like we need to do this, so that we can feel a little better about ourselves and not have to really see who we really are.
We can be quick to judge others, but when it comes to ourselves, forget it. You have to remember that people are always watching you. Not so much as to be in waiting for you to slip up, but your conduct.
If they see a mild mannered, polite, easy going person that is kind and considerate then that’s what they’re going to see. But if they see a rude, nasty, foul mouthed, angry person then that is what they are going to see.
It’s not so much as to be concerned about you calling yourself a Christian, but it would be better that they call you a Christian. That is what brings Glory to God.
The best thing that you want people to see in you is the good. No one wants to be considered evil, but who and what you are in God’s eyes is what is really going to matter.
If you are going to call yourself a Christian, then be one. Don’t mock people or call them names or be hateful towards your fellowman. A true Christian loves one another.
We really need to be cautious about how we represent ourselves and express our Christian beliefs. If you want to be humble and someone asks you if you are a Christian, just tell them that your faith is in Jesus Christ, He is our Savior and that you try to follow Him as best as you can, but you are not without fault. Then when you do mess up, no one gets hurt.
A Christian is a follower of Christ,a disciple. If you want to see what Jesus requires of one to be a disciple of His, look up these scriptures. Luke 6:46-49, Luke 14:26, 27 & 33, John 8:31-34, John 13:34 & 35, John 15:8.
