Authentic Christianity

A small child, sitting in church asked his father, “Dad, what is a Christian?”

The father replied, “A Christian is a person who loves and obeys God. He loves his friends and neighbours, and even his enemies. He prays often, is kind, gentle, and holy, and is more interested in going to heaven than in all earthly riches. That, son, is a Christian!”

The boy looked puzzled and thought for a minute, then asked, “Have I ever seen one?”

“If we are going to be authentic and relevant, we must embrace truth and allow it to transform us at our very core.” John Bevere

“This generation is desperately searching for something authentic. People are always watching us. They are watching us to see if we are the real deal. Without a transformed heart we can never be the light that the world around us so desperately needs. Stop acting and start being!” Joyce Meyer

Stop acting like a Christian, just be one!

From a sermon by Dean Courtier, Don’t act like a Christian just be one!, 11/11/2009
