Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

"That I may know Him" -- The Life's Highest Meaning

“There is no secret—only—only I am always at his feet, and he is always in my heart.” (A Hebridean princess)

 

Easter, the high and holy day of the Christian faith, has come and gone. But Jesus hasn’t. He promised to stay with us always, and He is still near. He promised never to abandon us, and He is still our faithful friend. The resurrected Christ keeps holding on to us—reaching out, embracing, calling our name. Jesus invites us to follow Him, to go on a spiritual journey with Him.

 

Being a Christian means more than believing—it means following Christ, the heartbeat of discipleship.

 

Being a Christian means more than worshiping once a week—it means every day commitment to the Lord.  

 

Being a Christian means more than going to church on Easter and Christmas—it means daily surrender to Christ.  

 

Being a Christian means more than a moment of ecstasy—it means an eternity of joy.

 

Being a Christian means more than a one-time good deal—it means a lifelong process of growing in Christlikeness.

 

Being a Christian means more than having a ticket to heaven—it means a gradual transformation to holiness.  

 

Being a Christian means more than one blessing—it means a lifetime of blessings—fields of flowers, constellations of stars.

 

Being a Christian means more than thinking Jesus is the Savior of the world—it means trusting Him as “my very own Savior.”

 

Being a Christian means more than praising Jesus as a great teacher—it means learning from Him as “my very own Teacher.”

 

Being a Christian means more than declaring Jesus is the Sovereign of the universe—it means staying near “my very own Shepherd.”

 

Being a Christian means more than saying we are Christians—it means experiencing a personal relationship with Christ.

 

“Mary turned to him and cried out, ‘Rabboni!’ (which is Hebrew for ‘my very own Teacher’).” (John 20:16 NLT)
