Christ-follower vs. Christian

What is a Christ follower? What is a Christian? Are they the same? Are they different? Well here is my opinion, a Christian is a person who is saved from their sins by grace through faith Jesus Christ, who go to church, worship God, and go on with their lives as any normal person would. I believe that a Christ follower has been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and who is totally and completely giving their life for the service of Jesus Christ. They face the problems that everyone else faces, but they stay prayed up, stay faithful to the Lord, stay read up in the Bible, they desire to bless other people by spreading the Word of God in love, they speak the holy name of Jesus Christ wherever they go, they lead their friends, they reach those who need help physically and most importantly spiritually. We need to be Christ followers my friends, we are as Christians in America, falling into the sins that so easily entangle us and the desires of the flesh, we need to stay in God's Word, stay prayed up, keep leading other Christians and most importantly leading the lost to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Keep this in mind in the days to come. We are all dying, all going to either heaven or hell, we as Christ followers need to keep those who do not know God's love or who are against God out of hell and tell them the good news of Jesus Christ.

Be bold for Jesus Christ,
Mark Cannon
