People often wonder how to identify a real Christian, in the end only God knows what a person’s heart is like. The author C.S Lewis once explained that many people he thought he would see in heaven would not be there and many who he did not expect would be! He concluded that it was amazing that ANY of us would be in heaven. Paul said that we must examine ourselves and be sure we are in the faith! For not everyone who says “Lord, Lord” will be in heaven!
What does a real Christian look like? What is authentic faith? How are we to spot who is and is not a Christian and how can we be sure that we ourselves are children of God. We are saved by Gods grace, it is faith alone that justifies us
- We love God
- We love the brethren of Christ
- We love our neighbors
- We do not love the world
- Thessalonians 1
