Are You Really a Christian?

“Somehow many have come to believe that a person can be a  ‘Christian’ without being like Christ. A ‘follower’ who doesn’t follow. How does that make sense?” – Multiply, Francis Chan.

I picked up this quote from a blog entry I read this morning titled, “What does it mean to be a “Follower of Jesus?” Doesn’t the quote capture the prevailing attitude and belief of Christians these days? You know, the nonchalant verbal profession of their Christianity without actions to back it up. Are you really a Christian or do you just say you are? Because we all know that actions speak louder than words.

If everyone who call themselves “Christians” actually stopped and thought about what being a Christian really means, then the entire world would definitely become a much better place. As one quote says, “Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.”

Take the time today to think about what you may need to do or change in yourself so that you can be more like Christ.
