What is Christianity? Who is a Christian? What does it take to become a Christian? Christianity is not going to church every single Sunday as suggested by many people. It is definitely not just a title. There is more to it than just that. Christianity is a lifestyle that reflects Jesus Christ, and it all comes by receiving and believing Jesus Christ as the Son of God. JOHN 1:12 reads; But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God. Christianity shouldn’t be confused with being a church goer. There is another level of understanding that it is all about having a strong and personal relationship with the Lord and surrendering your life completely to Him. I personally don’t see Christianity without Christ in it. Understanding that we don’t just go to church on Sundays because we have no business to do, we don’t go to prove a point to any man or to look good to the society. This is the reason why we have so many unbelieving believers nowadays. Are you in that church simple because you merely joined the church? Are you there because your friends go to that church? Christianity is accepting the word of God that brings light and truth into one’s life. Christianity should be inseparable with the true gospel of Jesus Christ that transforms lives.
God created man in His own image, meaning His likeness, He therefore wants us all to lead lives that reflect Jesus Christ. While some suggest that we all are automatically Christians, the outstanding question is; who then are those that kill, steal and do many eviller things you could name because Christianity encourages peace, love unity, harmony and respect? I am not saying this to condemn any man, organization, belief or church. One can go to church every day and still become a serial killer or a rapist. This proves that not everyone who goes to church is a Christian. Singing gospel music doesn’t automatically make one to become a Christian, but rather, be born again and let the Spirit of God live inside you. This life starts from within and then your outside will automatically reflect what’s inside you. I believe that it is time we should rise and stabilize our relationship with the Lord. If your relationship with God is not right, your relationship with people will be affected too. Check your relationship with God today.
