Many folks say they are a Christian.  They go to church.  They sing in the congregation or the choir.  They are on the board of Elders.  Maybe they hold the title of Deacon, Usher, Teacher, or even Pastor.  They look holy.  They “talk the talk”…some of them even “walk the walk.” ….

But when the rubber meets the road, the only thing that will matter in the end is this:  Did they ASK Jesus to save them, take their life, be their God and Savior!  If not, then they are not Christians.

When I was younger, I went on door-to-door visitation with my parents one evening.  When the gentleman answered the door, we told him who we were and that we were out canvassing the area and inviting folks to church.  We also asked him if he was a Christian.  His reply…”Of course I’m a Christian! ….  What do you think I am?  A heathen??!”

See…here’s the thing.  I could say I’m a car.  I could stand in the garage all day and all night long.  I could cover myself in grease and oil.  I could even smell of gasoline….  But doing all those things doesn’t make me a car!

There is only one thing that makes you a Christian, and that is to accept the gift of Salvation that Jesus paid for on the Cross.  Be covered, washed in His Blood.  Ask Him to forgive your sins and to come in, and abide with you.  Ask Him to be your Savior, and to take you to heaven when you die.

If you haven’t done this, I urge you to do so!  Being a Christian, “talking the talk” and “walking the walk”, following Christ and trying to do what He would do (WWJD), is not always easy, but it is the best life you could ever find!

Like my Pastor always says….”If you know Jesus and are going to heaven when you die, this (life) is the worst…the only hell you will ever get.  If you die without knowing Jesus, this (life) is the best…the only heaven you’ll ever get!”
