Who is a real Christian?
  1. A real Christian is someone who believes in the Lord Jesus for the forgiveness of his sin and who daily follows Him
  2. A real Christian believes in Jesus, and thus receives Jesus through faith and becomes a child of God (John 1:12)
  3. A real Christian has repented from his sins and has turned to God (Acts 3:19)
  4. A real Christian loves Jesus more than his father or mother, his son or daughter (Matthew 10:37-38)
  5. A real Christian is ready to give up everything he has to be Jesus’ disciple (Luke 14:33)
  6. A real Christian trusts God without questions, like children trust their parents (Matthew 18:3)
  7. A real Christian denies himself and is willing to suffer to follow Jesus (Mark 8:34)
  8. A real Christian obeys Jesus (Hebrew 5:9)
  9. A real Christian treasures Jesus above everything this world has to offer (Matthew 13:44)

Jesus gives us a sobering warning. He tells us that on the Last Day there will be many who say ‘Lord, Lord’, but will hear from Him ‘I never knew you’ (Matthew 7:21-23). Therefore, whether or not you are a real Christian is the most important question facing you in your life. You have to be sure! The Bible says: “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

Trust in the Lord Jesus, follow Him, and receive eternal life.
