Not because you say you are a Christian, makes you a Christian.
Not because you claim that you are a Pastor or a Preacher or a Prophet or an Evangelist etc, makes you a Christian.
Not because you perform signs and wonders, makes you a Christian.
Not because you go to Church every Sunday or every day, makes you a Christian.
Not because your father or mother or siblings or relatives or friends are Christians, makes you a Christian.
Not because you associate yourself with denominations, makes you a Christian.
Not because you associate yourself with Christians, makes you a Christian.
Not because you help the poor and the needy, and you give to charities; makes you a Christian.
All of these things mention above does not make anyone a Christian. A Christian is anyone who have the HOLY SPIRIT in him/her. A Christian is anyone led by the SPIRIT of GOD. A Christian is anyone who has been baptized with the HOLY SPIRIT. Again, a Christian is someone like JESUS CHRIST. JESUS CHRIST was led by the SPIRIT of GOD, and so if you want to be like JESUS CHRIST, you must be led by the SPIRIT of GOD. For it is written, “For all who are led by the Spirit of GOD are Sons of GOD (Roman 8:14)” In order word, all those who are led by the WORD of GOD are Sons of GOD. Observe yourself and see if you are being led by the WORD of GOD in the Bible in your daily life. The WORD of GOD is SPIRIT and LIFE, and GOD does nothing without HIS WORD. For it is written, “Test yourselves to discover whether you are true believers: put your own selves under examination. Or do you not know that Jesus Christ is within you, unless you are insincere? (2 Corinthians13:5)”
After examine yourself, you yourself will know without you are a Christian or not. That is, whether you are being led by the SPIRIT of GOD or not. In order word, whether you are being led by the WORD of GOD or not. For it is written, “…. Anyone who does not have the SPIRIT of CHRIST does not belong to HIM (Roman 8:9).” If you are not a Christian, Stop deceiving yourself and become a Christian. Thank You LORD JESUS for Your WORD today. Give thanks and praises to GOD ALMIGHTY for HE loves you so much and HE wants you to be HIS Child forever and ever.
I invite you to make JESUS CHRIST the LORD of your life if you haven’t done so by praying thus with all your heart:
“O LORD GOD the ALMIGHTY, I believe with all my heart in JESUS CHRIST, Your SON. I believe He died for me, He died for my sins and YOU raised Him from the dead. I believe HE’S alive today and because of Him, I live. I confess with my mouth that JESUS is the LORD of my life from this day. I receive Your gift of Eternal Life into my Spirit.
Thank YOU LORD for saving my soul. Thank YOU LORD for Thy Salvation in JESUS’ NAME.”
If you have done so with all your heart; Congratulation!
Now, you are a Child of GOD and you have the Love of GOD in You. So, live for HIM alone and celebrate HIM in everyday of your life. Study His Word and make it the standard for your life. Make it your check system. Look for a Living Church and fellowship with them. The HOLY SPIRIT will help you.
JESUS is LORD.
