Ok. What does it mean to be a Christian? It is not believing in God. That is not Christianity. Please spare people of the dumbed down, no purpose, slack Christianity. James 2:19 says, “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.” Accepting that God is real and ruler over everything is not enough. If you are in a house burning down by fire you can accept that the house is burning down and die or you can get up and walk out of the house. I’m sorry but if all you have done is say “Oh yea, I’m a Christian and I believe God is real”…….. well…… its not enough to spend eternity with him and you will die and be separated from him forever.
John 10:7-11 says, “Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.” There is a process here not just an acknowledgement of the obvious. One can not simply realize the gate is real! No. One must walk through it and align themselves with God. It is so simple. Choose to side with God. If you are reading this make sure you do not base your faith off the existence of God but on your relationship with God. Carry his name.
