A Christian is someone who has received Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour. A christian is not the one who attends a church or associates with a church. There are many who belong to a Church but they are not Christians. This may sound contradictory, but that is the fact.
Jesus affirmed to this when he said, “by their fruits, you shall know them”. He didn’t say, “by their association, their dressing or their words, ye shall know them”. There is a doing that identifies one as a christian or not. It is not the doing that makes one a christian, but the doing helps us to know if one is what he/she said he/she is.
It’s this doing that actually led to the early believers in Jesus to be called, “Christians”. This name was given to them at Antioch when the people saw that the believers conducted themselves in manners that demonstrated the lifestyle of Jesus Christ. So then, the name “Christian” means “Christ-like’ or to act like Christ.
But recall that Jesus did not call His followers, “Christians”. He called them “Disciples’.
Here is the deal! Jesus called his followers, ‘Disciples’. The world called the followers of Jesus Christ, “Christians”. These two names have stuck. However, the later seem to have grown in ascendancy, and gained general appeal.
Because of this, we are going to explore those characters, attributes, ways of life that the early believers exhibited that earned them the name “Christians”. Since the name is more of connected to the doings of believers at the time, and since today followers of Christ are universally called Christians, we want to examine the lifestyle of those called Christians today to see if it reflects the name “Christian”.
This is the focus of this Show titled “Everyday Christian”
