Authentic Faith!

There are many who believe the mark of a true follower of Christ is found in their church membership/attendance/giving. However, this is not completely true in its entirety. There are several distinguishing marks of a true Christ follower and a few of them are found in the Beatitudes recorded in Matthew 5:1-12: Peacemakers (V9), pure hearted (V8), merciful (V7), and thirsty for righteousness (V6). Make note, the Beatitudes are not telling you how to become a Christian as salvation is a gift that you merely accept by faith through grace (Eph 2:8). In point, the Beatitudes tells us what a true Christian looks like. Yes, learning to be a Christ follower is taught/preached/ministered at church but it must be lived outside of the walls of the church. Let’s be honest, it’s easy to profess our Christian status but what happens when someone cuts you off in traffic and shoots you the ‘bird’?? The reality is Christians are not perfect people because we all fall short of God’s glory ( Rms 3:23). But, we ALL need to regularly examine ourselves to see how we are lining up!
