What does it REALLY Mean to be a Christian?

Let’s  SyncUP about “What is a Christian”

OK…so I wanted to do something a little different for this week’s SyncUP. In lieu of an article, I wanted to have a discussion about the following  question: What does it REALLY Mean to be a Christian?

Here’s a video of one Christian woman’s revelation on the topic. View it and share what you think.

Can you relate to her?

In what ways is her perspective scripturally sound? In what ways is it not?

Why is this even a topic? Shouldn’t what makes a Christian a Christian be obvious?

Let’s get the conversation started…share your thoughts, comments, and questions below.

Next Steps

Now that you have finished reading it’s time to SyncUP with God.  SUBSCRIBE and receive access to the “Weekly SyncUP Guide” via email. It provides 5 daily guides on scripture reading, reflection questions, life application steps, and prayers to help you have your own daily SyncUps with God for the rest of the week.

DON’T FREAK OUT…if doing all 5 this week is overwhelming, set a goal of 2 or 3 and work your way up from there. Enjoy Life and God Bless!

  1. This is LIfe Changing and Convicting, IT’S ALL ABOUT SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS!!!!! JESUS LOVED EVERYONE, DESPITE THEIR DIFFERENCES OR BELIEFS AND IN THAT ALONE THAT’S WHERE HEARTS CAN BE CHANGED AND PEOPLE WON TO CHRIST, NOT BY CONDEMNING PEOPLE. EMANUELLA IS RIGHT ON!!!! OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A FILTHY RAGS, WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE AND CONDEMN OTHERS.

  2. Emanuella’s main message to Christians is for us to love all, as Christ loved all. I like the metaphor she used when describing how she displayed her faith, mentioning she was wearing a “pretty coat in a dirty body.” I think this is something all Christians have done, including myself, to display our faith; and some still continue to do so today. It’s like Pastor Gay mentioned in sermon, we as Christians are no better than our neighbor. I agree with Emanuella that the best way for us to truly display our faith is to love and show compassion for others. Perhaps by doing this, more people would be intrigued by the Christian faith and would be open to learning more.

    1. I’ve been imagining the same thing…what would happen if more Christians approached their non-Christian relationships like this? Would the perception about Christians and our faith change? I think it would…in a radical way.

  3. Regardless of good intentions, judging can easily slip in. That’s why it is important to be focused on Jesus and to remember what is true,Godly, love– …kindness, gentleness, patience, peace…. (Galatians 5:22)
