Just because someone says they are a follower of God, does not mean they truly are. If they are a follower of God, God will be at the centre of all they do. They will not seek to promote themselves or be praised for their actions, as they will do everything to honour God, not themselves.

Which are you – the one who does all for God, or the one seeking self-interest or promotion?

I for one, know I try to do everything for God, but I’m not perfect, so I do fail sometimes and so can find myself doing things for me rather than for God. I simply pray that God will help me to make Him the centre of all I say and do, so that I become a true follower who always puts Him first.

Full of hope

If I were to ask you what one thing represents hope to you, what would you say?

For me it comes back to the cross, and more specifically, the empty cross – Because of Jesus we have hope for a brighter tomorrow where our sins have been washed away and we all believe that God loves each one of us.

Does the cross mean anything to you?

Does the empty cross mean anything to you?

It gives hope and means the world to me.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ ~ Billy Graham

Yes, to be a Christian you must give your life to God and let Him into every part of your life, however having done this, our job of being a Christian is far from over…every day we must learn from God and grow more like Christ.

That sounds so easy doesn’t it? However if I’m honest with you, it can often be far from easy to grow more like Christ each day…but that’s when we try to do everything on our own, without putting God at the centre of all we do.

Are you still growing as a Christian? Let God continue to help you grow more like Him each day.
