The questions came out when I am about to write this post. What does it mean to be a christian? What should we do?
Often time, many hours of our leisure time well-spent on something sometime did not enlighten us or shield us from this worldly world. too many things to please our weak flesh and distort our beautiful soul.
Which is suppose to be the opposite. living the life that bring glory to God from the fruits that we sow or the seed that we planted. being somebody that represent God in a meaningful & fruitful life.
we ought to be a prepared christian. being prepared means, we study bible, learn from other, put to work what we have learned from Bible and people around us, humble in receiving the advices and perspective, plus a consistency in doing it.
keep praying for things we did wrong and repent, start to do the right things.
And I think, it’s very important we find out what is the born again christian and what is born again christian suppose to be like.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel no that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3:5-7
To make people quit to hate each other, fighting each other, and start loving each other, You cant pass the law to make people love each other, it has to come from the heart and Jesus says, it will only come from heart that is heal to the Christ, to Him self and thats why He said, you must be born again.
— William Franklin Graham Jr. (November 7, 1918 – February 21, 2018) was an American evangelist, a prominent evangelical Christian figure, and an ordained Southern Baptist minister who became well-known internationally in the late 1940s. One of his biographers has placed him “among the most influential Christian leaders” of the 20th century.
Here is one of best quote describing about what we ought to say.
Learning to think first about the meaning of it before we spit it out which should be encouraging, benefited rather than destructive to other.
First learn the meaning of what you say, and then speak.
Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia and lived in Rome until his banishment, when he went to Nicopolis in northwestern Greece for the rest of his life. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion.
