What a wonderful question....I am so happy that I get to answer it:
To be a Christian means that I believe that Jesus Christ is my God and Savior, that He died on the cross for me and forgave me of all my sins by His precious Blood.....it also means that I have chosen to set myself apart from others in this world to follow Jesus and live for Him, because He died for me on the cross & gave me eternal life, and He means everything to me.
Being a Christian means emulating Jesus....I choose to be like Him, I want Him to make me like Him more each day!. I choose to love others because He commanded me to do so, and because I love Him, I keep His commands....
People will know we are Christians by our love, because we are peace makers.
Because we don't gossip or drink, curse and do things that would be sinful to our God, others can see that we are God fearing Christians.
What is Jesus like?.....He is our loving God and Savior, the Creator of the universe and of us all.....He is the Living Word, He is Pure Love, He is compassionate, merciful, kind, beautiful and gentle, He is the healer of broken hearts.... He has the power to do anything!.....Jesus is amazing, He alone knows our hearts and minds, because he formed us and He is God....He died once for all the sins of the world.....He will be returning any time....very soon, to rapture (gather His saints together) and take us home to heaven with Him. (Saints are all of us who belong to Jesus Christ our Lord)
Here are some helpful scriptures:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (NKJ Bible)
1 Corinthians 6:19 & 20
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."
"Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."
There are so many other scriptures I want to share....every Word in the Bible is alive....it is the Living Word (Jesus is the Living Word) of God....and every Word teaches us.....speaks to our hearts, guides and leads us!
***I am sorry this is such a long answer!......May God bless you, Helen
