When just saying it isn’t enough

So many people nowadays claim to be followers of Christ but when we really step back and look at it we see just how many of us have become like the people it talks about in Revelations 3:16 “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”

This image perfectly sums up the mindset that most people now have that if they go to church that is what saves them. But that is far from the truth because being a disciple of Christ means that on top of going to church you live out the things that Jesus has taught and you spend your time, energy, money and mind dedicated to the causes of Christ. When we truly give ourselves to Christ we are doing more than just going to church we dedicate ourselves to building a relationship and a lifestyle that focuses on Christ and not of earthly things. A great verse that really teaches us how to be a disciple is Romans 14:7-8 and it says “For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.”

  1. I like how you talk about how people who say that they are a christian just go to church and don’t actually live for God. To be a Christian you have to help spread his teachings instead of just listening to them and then doing nothing about it.

  2. Could not have said all of this better. As I learned in a sermon recently from my pastor, “if you are going to talk the talk, you have to walk the walk.” this means that you need to do the Christian actions that you follow.
