And so it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people.And the disciples were first called Christians.(Acts 11:26).
The disciples in antioch were called Christians because they lived like Christ.Their behaviour,habits,attitudes and mannerism were traceable to Christ.
Christ is the standard for our lives.We are to look at him all the time and live like Him.The Holy scriptures teaches us to fix our eyes on Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Jesus lived an exemplary life.He was kind to people.Everywhere He went He was doing good,healing the sick,delivering the demon possessed and feeding the hungry.He also learned to forgive the wrong of others.
A Christian is one who lives like Christ.He speaks and acts like Jesus.Does you language,dressing,habits,attitude and mannerisms depict Christ?
Live with the consciousness that Christ lives in you and you will begin to express Him to others.
Prayer of Salvation
Dear Lord Jesus I believe that you died for my sins and rose on the third day for my complete salvation.I acknowledge that I am a sinner.Please forgive and wash my sins by your righteous blood.Come into my heart and lead me by your power in the way of everlasting life.Amen
Please find a bible believing church and let's grow together as we look for the appearing of the Lord unto salvation.
