Welcome to Worthy.................Praise the Lord! I am proud to proclaim the Name that is above all names,He is my Lord my Savior,my Living Redeemer!I believe the Lord presents us with many 'ministry moments"throughout each day & many opportunities to spread the Good News,be it by saying simply"I am a Christian"& displaying those good fruits or just in our daily walk & others will know that it is Christ we represent by what they see.Even the 'Joy of the Lord" that shines like a bright light from a kind smile or gesture will provoke someone to say..."what are you so happy about?'
The Holy Spirit leads & guides us how to move,in words ,actions and everything..........Glory to God!
With love-in Christ,Kwik

Christian a relatively new term. I think Christ follower is better, but I say Christian all the time.

I am sure we are allowed to say that we believe and follow Jesus. We are to proclaim His good news to all! Hallelujah!!!

I think that anyone can call themself "Christian". By their fruits you shall know them. The "Christian" is the one who in actuality follows Christ. One who says he believes and does not do what Christ commanded is a liar, according to scripture. (1st John)

One does not have to advertise being a christian. It is our life that speaks the loudest. If we walk according to the Word of God, it will be evident to the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Every believer has a portion of the Holy Spirit; and without it none can be drawn unto him to receive salvation. Yes, it is the holiness that witnesses best. God always makes a way to know the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness, clean and unclean of the inward spirit of a man. It is God who tries the reins and the hearts of men. We are Christ-like in mind, body, and spirit. Let us always continue to allow the light of God shine upon us as the children of the Most High...the righteousness of Christ.
Your Sister In Christ,
