If Christian means to be Christ like, how are you being Christ like every day?

    I believe it is a sad thing for us to procliam we are a Christian and not act Christ like. Perhaps we should just call ourselves believers or something other than Christian. We are hurting the kingdom by not being who we say we are. Jesus went around doing good everywhere! What are you doing everyday. Perhaps we can encourage one another or call ourselves believers instead of Christians. I am not ashamed of God, nor of Jesus, however, I am at times ashamed of myself!

    Nice post - that is one of the reasons i wouldn't ever call myself a Christian. The truth is, if you want to be good, you can. I doubt many people do, though. They think that they can't, but that's more of an excuse. We all have good inside of us, we're just too afraid to use it.

    like anything else, it is just inconvienient to practice what you preach. if people acted "christ like" they wouldn't be able to enjoy life.

    Many "Christians" are fooled by this. If you are "Born Again" you are a new creature, and in Christ, and Christ in you (Holy Spirit). So because Christ is in you, you belong to God and are not of this world.

    If you try and "Act" like what you think a Christian should be like (self righteousness), you will deceive yourself. Its the indwelling Holy Spirit that changes you, and not you changing yourself. While we are sinners yet "Born Again" we are clean as snow, God does not judge us but corrects us by the Holy Spirit, and we will be perfected at his coming as he is perfect. As he is so will we be at as coming.
    Many end up in Asylums trying to be Holy, there is only one that is Holy, and he is the Holy Spirit. Submit to God and he will lift you up.
    Never feel ashamed of yourself because God doesn't feel ashamed of you, that's why he died on the cross, so you could be lifted up as Christ is.
    God has begun a good work in you and will complete it at his coming

    Jesus also said do not judge others and whatever you measure in a person you also will be received as you measured in a person.

    Correct BL Tween! I agree with you. But the thing is we should try our best to be like Christ. David was a man after to God's heart. That means he was so close to Him. But he was a bad guy too and did so many mistakes. Then why he had that kind of good testimony from God? Because he was a man of repentance. He responded well to God and His corrections. So even we can follow Him. Repenting and trying our best to be like Jesus Christ. That's my desire.

    BEING A CHRISTIAN IS JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER THINGS WE DO . ONCE WE RECEIVE SALAVATION WE HAVE TO PRACTICE IT ,AND WHAT YOU DO THE MOST BECOMES A MATTER OF THE HEART . REMEMBER WHAT EVER YOU GIVE YOUR HEART TO BECOMES YOU . i THANK GOD HE GAVE US A BETTER WAY TO LIVE THAT IS ALREADY INSIDE OF US AND WE GET SIDE TRACKED BY LIFE ITSELF .I REMEMBER TO PUT GOD FIRST THEN ALL ELSE ISNT SO HARD TO DEAL WITH . hope this helps  love all.

    Man has been blessed by Him, with the "Power to Choose" (Free Moral Agent).  For Man can choose to seek Him, and HIs Ways First, and thus be pleaseing to Him, thus being (Wise),  or they can Choose to seek those things, that pleases themselves first, thus being (Foolish). Its a matter of choice really! For one's choices has consequences, Lets Pray that all will Choose to be Wise!

    Love like there is no tomorrow, or at least try to always do the most loving thing, because:
    1 Corinthians 13: "If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
