Yes, I am a Christian


Today you will find millions of people worldwide who comfortably blanket themselves under the term “Christian.” Now, the reader certainly understands the laments term of the word to mean a follower of Christ. What does it mean right here in our metropolitan area to be a Christian? On a basic level, it means to conduct your daily life in a way that Christ would approve of, and attend worship every week.
It seems that today the old stand-by of: “don’t tell me, show me” is in effect. After all, displaying your Christian background could mean any number of things. For each individual it is something that should be examined—what does being a Christian really mean to you as a person? One example is that of a person volunteering of their time, this is a wonderful way to put into practice the ideals you learned all those years ago in Sunday school. There are dozens of ways to give of your time. Please, comment below if you are interested in volunteering, but don’t know where to start.

Now the word many have come to dread, or simply shy away from all together: church. It seems that many push aside this opportunity to gather, and choose to fill that time with other daily activities.

The regular attendees who have chosen to openly dedicate an hour of your lives every week: God bless. We see the great influx of people two times a year, at Easter and Christmas These individuals slap the label on themselves, but choose not to take an active role in their faith. There will always be the people on the fringes who wear the label on their sleeve, but don’t let it penetrate their heart. Again… what does being a Christian mean to you? That’s for every person to decide for themselves.
