This was taken from a posting on Facebook (author Unknown), and though I usually don’t import items from Social Sites, I thought this was a beautiful and truthful definition of what a Christian is (or should be) and wanted to share it here. I hope you, dear reader, are uplifted and inspired by its words.
I am a Christian
‘A person’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find them.’
When I say that ‘I am …a Christian’, I am not shouting that ‘I am clean living. I’m whispering ‘I was lost, but 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!
