What is a TRUE Christian?
Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (KJV) . . . Jesus’ followers were first called Christians at Antioch. Why were they called Christians?
1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. (KJV) . . . They were called Christians because they were followers of Christ. They had committed their lives to walk as Jesus did.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. (KJV) . . . This Passage explains how a person comes to faith in Jesus Christ and begins a relationship. A TRUE Christian has faith in Jesus as the Savior . . . . . . . . . . . http://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (KJV) . . . A TRUE Christian is NEVER ashamed to say Jesus is Lord and believes Jesus was resurrected from the dead.
1 Cor.15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; (KJV) . . . The message of the resurrected Jesus is of supreme importance. Without Jesus’ resurrection, our faith is pointless and void, and we are still in our sins. A TRUE Christian believes in His resurrection, and ours (Jn.6:40,47,54).
1 Cor. 15:13-14 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. (KJV) . . . A TRUE Christian lives by faith in the resurrected Jesus.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (KJV) . . . This is VERY clear! IF a person does NOT have the Spirit of Christ, he does NOT belong to Christ. A TRUE Christian has God’s Holy Spirit living within him.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: (KJV) . . . The Holy Spirit within us, witnesses to our spirit that we are God's children.
James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. (KJV) . . . A TRUE Christian will show his faith by his works and words.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (KJV) . . . A TRUE Christian will show his faith by how he lives.
2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV) . . . The evidence of a TRUE Christian is revealed in faith, action and words.
There are many beliefs that fall under the common Christian label today . . . BUT the Bible describes a TRUE Christian as one who has: #1. personally received Jesus Christ as Saviour, #2. who trusts in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ alone for forgiveness of sins, #3. who has the Holy Spirit residing within, and #4. whose life displays change consistent with faith in Jesus.
