Christian Life

(NEW SITE)


What is a Christian? People from all faiths come up with different definitions. For me-Christianity is more than just a religion , but a personal intimate relationship with God through Jesus-Yeshua .

When was this "term" first used in the Bible?

"...and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch."-Acts 11:26

It's a lifestyle, which isn't perfect (yes, we are all hypocrites, which is why we chose Jesus to be our "Lord"-we need Him to direct our lives and we cannot live life by our selves)with daily temptations and/or life challenges. This is why I made the links down below to show what I feel is part of being a Christian....

*Note: I'm no expert on these life lessons, but I just want to direct or point people the one who God-Elohim through His Son Jesus!

    Campus Crusade
    "Josh McDowell thought Christians must be "out of their minds." He put them down. He argued against their faith.
    But eventually he saw that his arguments wouldn't stand up. Jesus Christ really was God in human Flesh. Josh became a speaker on college and university campuses, challenging those who were just as skeptical as he had been.
    In More Than a Carpenter Josh focuses upon the person who changed his life--Jesus Christ. It is a hard-headed book for people who are skeptical about Jesus' deity, his resurrection and his claims on their lives."

    From: "Poniman and Linda"
    Subject: When I say... "I am a Christian"
    Date: Thu, 29 Jun 2006 20:16:49 +0700

    "When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
    I'm whispering "I was lost,
    Now I'm found and forgiven."

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I don't speak of this with pride.
    I'm confessing that I stumble
    and need Christ to be my guide.

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I'm not trying to be strong.
    I'm professing that I'm weak
    And need His strength to carry on.

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I'm not bragging of success.
    I'm admitting I have failed
    And need God to clean my mess.

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I'm not claiming to be perfect,
    My flaws are far too visible
    But, God believes I am worth it.

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I still feel the sting of pain.
    I have my share of heartaches
    So I call upon His name.

    When I say... "I am a Christian"
    I'm not holier than thou,
    I'm just a simple sinner
    Who received God's good grace, somehow! *

    101 Ways Your Church Can Change the World
    "Sometimes those of us in the church tend to do the same things over and over again because they've worked in the past. The author of this book served as a church leader and pastor for over 40 years and was always looking for new ideas for reaching out to the community and world to make a difference. It's true that what works in one community may not work in another; what excites some people may not inspire others. This Ebook is provided hoping it will spark new, fun and effective ways for your church to reach out to a hurting world."
