May 26 – Relationship With Christ Equals Christianity

Daily Bible Life

Every child of God is expected to maintain a distinct relationship with his/her Maker. No “sitting on the fence,” or “one-leg-in and one-leg-out” practices are allowed. Whoever claims to be a Christian must do so wholeheartedly, or else he/she will be rejected at the gate of heaven. God said through his word; “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:15-19).

 

Lesson:

Anyone who claims to be a Christian should examine him or herself to determine if indeed he/she deserves to go to heaven. God will not save anyone based on titles and personal claims, he will save people based on their confession of faith and the type of relationship they keep with him. Anyone who professes to be a Christian should not engage in a lip service. He/she should not keep a distant relationship with God. A good Christian ought to have a personal and growing relationship with God. He/she is expected to be close to God and constantly read his/her bible. The person is supposed to be part of a local fellowship/church, and be involved in services that honor God. Also, a good Christian is expected to read and understand God’s law and carefully follow them. A good Christian calls God, his Father; he calls Jesus his/her Savior. A good Christian supports good courses and promotes the welfare of others. A good Christian daily seeks God’s face and asks for God’s indwelling Holy Spirit to live an acceptable and overcoming life in this world. Ultimately, a good Christian is in expectation of Christ’ return and carefully watches his/her steps in order to qualify for the rapture. At the end of it all, Christ will call a good Christian to heaven – A home specially preserved for his saints.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, “Am I a good Christian?” Well, I come humbly before you today for your assessments. Please check me out, wash me, and keep me fit for your kingdom. Convict me of my mistakes, and help me to repent from them all. Keep my heart pure, and baptize me with your Holy Spirit to live a committed life before you. Edify me with your word, and keep me forever fit for your rapture. Please let me qualify to hear the blast of your trumpet on the last day so that I can be transported to heaven! Let me qualify to receive your crown of glory in heaven, and partake in your eternal banquet! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
