We are living in a society where it’s hard to tell who the real Christians are. When you ask someone what their religion is, you often hear: Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist and so forth. If you are a born-again Christian, you can easily spot out the fakes. You can easily see if a person is truly living under the blood of Jesus or not. However, most Christians today are not living up to the Bibles standards and are instead living in sin.
A Christian is supposed to live like the Apostles told them to live in the New Testament. If you are sleeping around or living in another type of sin, then it’s clear that you have not truly repented.
What happens when you can’t stop sinning? Sometimes, a sin such as homosexuality or adultery enters the heart of a man/woman and they simply can’t stop themselves from sinning. They usually ask God for forgiveness after they have sinned repeatedly. As a Christian, it’s a requirement to repent of your sins and to give your life to Jesus daily. We are called to be more Christ like every single day.
I remember in high school, there was a woman in my dance class by the name of Rosa. I had prayed for her that she would become a Christian a year earlier. She told me that she gave herself to Jesus a year later. Every day, she would come into class holding her Bible. You could see the glow of Jesus in her face. Everyone around her knew that she had given herself to Christ.
Today, I don’t see a lot of Christians walking around with Bibles or the glow of the Holy Spirit on them. I know that times have changed since the 1990’s. However, I am seeing less Christians in today’s world than ever before. I simply find it hard to meet people that are born again.
I am a bit jealous when I read the Holy Bible and the gathering of the apostles. I often wonder what it would have been like to sit amongst the apostles talking about Jesus. The start of the Christian church was a complete miracle.
Today, I see many sloppy Christians that are not representing the faith correctly. I often see people saying that they are a Christian, but are not. It is so sad to see people not doing what is right in the eyes of Christ. We are living in the last days. I couldn’t imagine things getting any worse than they are now. However, the Bible says that what we are seeing in the world today is only the beginning of birth pains of things that are to come. Take a good look in the mirror. Do people know that you are different from most people? Do people ask you if you believe in Jesus or some other higher power? True born-again Christians often are asked this question because they stand out from the ordinary crowd. Please repent of your sins and turn to Jesus if you are reading this post.
