Because I’m A Christian

Because I’m a Christian… I’m proclaiming that I’m one in Christ Jesus that I was lost, Now I’m found, I repented and now I’m forgiven and because of my heart-felt thankfulness I seek to be Clean living by the power of the Holy Spirit and in Christ Jesus I have been set free from the power of sin over me.

Because I’m a Christian… I’m proud to be called by that name because it means I have Jesus Christ within and I take pride of my position and unity in Him.

Because I’m a Christian… I’m no longer trying to be strong because it’s the Lord’s strength that will carry me along and when at times I see weaknesses God’s understanding and refining I do seek then I never need to be in dismay because God’s Love rules all I do and say.

Because I’m a Christian… I’m Lifting God on High not bragging of my success or the good things that I do knowing that alone I will fail, but because of God’s Love  He will see me through and will  bring Glory through the things He has prepared in advance for me to do.

Because I’m a Christian … I’m seeking to be perfect because although my flaws are visible one day they will be no more…Jesus knocked and I opened up the door. Did God believe I was worth it when He died upon the tree yes even knowing I was deep in sin He still came to set me free.

Because I’m a Christian… I still feel the sting of pain but I no longer carry any shame and in my heart there is Joy although things may stay the same but I have the Lord’s Peace because I call upon His name.

Because I’m a Christian… I know I don’t walk alone and the strength to live the Christian Life is given not owned as at  the cross I sit at Christ’s feet .

Because I’m a Christian… I seek to be Holy just as the Lord asks us to be by following Jesus who died to set us free. In every thing God’s does and says His Love is the Light that guides me on my way.

Because I’m a Christian… Although in my flesh a  sinner I would be but I no longer seek this way because through the Spirit it’s no longer part of me, Christ nailed it to the tree and now I have God’s power to Trust and Obey and I never have to wonder how all this can be because God’s Love in Grace pardoned me.

Because I’m a Christian… When others are in need I do not procrastinate, find excuses or push them away but I obey and  trust in the Lord to equip and strengthen me for whatever it may be that is needed from me.

 

Because I’m a Christian  I know a testing time will be part of my preparation for Eternity but  through the trial The Lord will keep me strong because to Him I belong, Satan will never have the upper hand because in Christ Jesus I stand.

Because I’m a Christian… I’m saying I have counted the cost and have chosen to follow Jesus regardless of the sacrifice or loss. I know that the Lord leads the way bringing me to perfection everyday untill in His image I will stay.

    • Thank you TTL for visiting and for your affirmation on what I have shared. I have received over the years many e-mails some sharing God’s Truth, some sharing error and some sharing both together, I often wonder in sadness what affect the error has on those who take it to heart, perhaps it is why we have Cults who firmly believe they are right.

      What do you think TTL is the most important thing we need to ask God for after we accept our free gift of Salvation by our heart repentance which shows we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour?

      Thanks again Christian Love from both of us – Anne

        You may have touched on it in the comments you just made, Anne. Because there are so many false teachers flooding the world with poisonous doctrine, I would ask my Lord for the guidance and wisdom to discern His truth from among these “angels of Satan!”

        David was praised when he became king at such a young age for asking wisdom of the Lord. The scriptures are full of how valuable Godly wisdom is.

        “Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; Love her, and she will watch over you. “The beginning of wisdom is (this): Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. “Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her.…” (Proverbs 4:6-8)

        • Yes that is very True TTL we do indeed need to ask for God’s wisdom and His empowering, I Posted about their importance a few years ago and will leave the link below for you.

          Wisdom – https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/the-gaining-of-wisdom/

          After I came to heart repentance I was very confused with all the different teaching and I asked God for His help, if you would like me to, I will share with you TTL how He showed me the way to understand His Truth from man’s error, I’m still learning but Jesus is teaching me as He does everyone who takes to heart His guidelines, to Seek, Ask and Knock.

          I’m enjoying sharing with you TTL you are a very gracious and Loving man, I value these qualities greatly and feel blessed by those like you who show them to others unconditionally, Thank you.

          Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne

            Thank you for the kind words, Anne. We are to love and build up one another in the faith as brothers and sister. This is a message throughout the bible…

            You are welcome to share anything here which is Godly taught. I am happy to comment or to let it stand as you’ve stated it.

            Thank you for your insights…

      When we really Love someone as you know Ron we want to give them our all, God does not hold any of His Love back from us He gives 100% can we give less and then still claim to have His Love for Him and others, this is why we must ask for His Love our fleshy worldly love is just a dim reflection of His.

      Christian Love Anne.

  3. Anne, all the points you make are valid and I say ‘Amen’ to all. May I add another?

    Because I am a Christian – because my loving heavenly Father gave His best, His only Son, for me – because He adopted me into His own family as a blood-bought child of God, an heir of His and a joint-heir with Christ – because He has given me every resource of heaven to enable me to live a victorious Christ life – because He is my constant Guide, Companion, Strength, Challenger, Enabler, and so much more – because I love Him – I gladly follow Him, enjoying the REALITY of His prersence, and I look for the day when He will take me home to be with Him forever.

    What an amazing God!

      Hi John, thank you for your kind words, I’m pleased it inspired you, perhaps more detail will be need to be added in the future or it may have already been said but I believe as with all that I share about God’s Truth that I’m lead in what I write and it is confirmed in Scripture but I know I’m still learning and I’m eager and excited about doing so, Jesus is our only Teacher and will lead us into all Truth by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.
