Christianity is not just a word we throw around but is the very essence of our faith. Wrapped up in Christianity is everything Jesus did for us through the shedding of His blood and everything God did for us through the resurrection of Christ from the dead.
Christianity is not only who we are but what we are. We are Christians and as such, we strive to live as Christ would live, think as Christ would think, speak as Christ would speak and do as Christ would do. We have Christ within us and in this life we strive to put on Christ and become more and more like Him.
Christianity is not a religion, for religions are made by man. Christianity is our FAITH which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Christianity is who we are because of what He did.
The more we learn about all that was accomplished on our behalf through the suffering and death of Jesus, the more we learn what it means to be a servant. Jesus emptied Himself of all His glory and honor and humbled Himself, being willing to die on our behalf.
When God raised Jesus from the dead, He gave Him a name which is above every name which is CHRIST. Jesus Christ our Lord is THE name which causes demons to tremble and is the greatest name in the universe. Every knee must bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is both Lord and Christ.
I pray God continues to open the eyes of your heart as you learn more and more about who Jesus Christ is and everything we have in and through HIM. Truly what we have been given is exceeding abundantly above anything we could ever ask or think.
What a wonderful blog!
When people ask me what my religion is, I say, "I don't have a religion... I just have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I am a christian."
