The word "Christian" gets tossed around a lot nowadays. People who say they are Christian but don't live or act like it. There's too many people like that out there. What if we took the word Christian away? What would we as believers call ourselves? Back in day, over 2,000 years ago the first followers of Jesus were called just that, followers of Jesus. I know they had other names but this is the base of them all. Matthew 4:18-22 talks about when He saw Peter and Andrew and then later James and John, He said "Follow Me" and they dropped what they were doing and followed Him. We say we are Christians, but do we follow Him? We are supposed to thrive to be like Jesus. Preaching the gospel, healing others, showing kindness, and the list goes on and on. But we forget. The world has hidden the meaning of being a true Christian, we've given it our own meaning to fit our needs and make it easy. The disciples were first called Christians in Acts 11:26 in Antioch. Being a Christian is so much more than labeling ourselves with that name. It's remembering we're followers of Christ. We're here to be a light, to show people the Way, the Truth and the Life. Sometimes we have to reflect on ourselves and the things we do to make sure it's lining up with His will. The world can be distracting and people can lead you down the wrong roads but God gave us the Bible as navigation through everything. The Bible is vital and it shows us who Jesus is and how to be true followers of Him. I recommend starting in New Testament or even re-reading the first four books and studying them to learn and refresh our minds. I hope this got you thinking and maybe helped a bit :) I hope to be posting again here soon. See you later!
