What is a Christian?

A Christian is a person who loves, worships and obeys Jesus Christ as King of all creation.

A Christian is a person who

  • has voluntarily stopped rebelling against King Jesus, recognising that God is offering complete forgiveness to rebels.
  • has surrendered their whole way of life to King Jesus.
  • is learning from King Jesus, through the Bible, the desires, attitudes, speech and behaviours that please God.
  • has eternal hope in Jesus’ resurrection, which guarantees our bodily resurrection and the renewal of the whole creation.

A PRAYER FOR REBELS WHO WANT A FRESH START

The following prayer is not about securing a ‘ticket to heaven’, but is a tool to help you begin a conversation with God that can continue every day until you see him face to face.

God, I recognise this is your world and you have made Jesus Christ the King of it and therefore Jesus has the right to rule my life.
I confess I am rebellious against Jesus’ right to control my life and as His enemy I deserve eternal death.
God, right now I surrender completely to Jesus. I give up my life as a rebel and put my trust in your offer of forgiveness.
God, right now I submit my whole way of life to King Jesus and ask you to make this obvious by changing my desires, attitudes, speech and behaviours to be Jesus-like.
Holy Spirit of God, please come and fill me and empower me to live a life like Jesus.
God, please give me the promised inheritance of eternal life and hope in Jesus’ resurrection.
Amen.
