Christians Are First and Foremost …

As Christians, we are first and foremost men and women created by Almighty Creator God! We have been made beautifully and wonderfully. But we became sinners who desperately needed to be saved by the grace of God. In His perfect time, God sent His Son Jesus to live and die for our sins on the cross. Those who have received Jesus as Lord and Savior have received the right to be called children of God. As children of God, we are blessed with many spiritual blessings and we are called to faithfully and obediently serve Him also as servants and slaves, to fight spiritual battles as soldiers of Christ, not primarily so that we live a more materially comfortable life, but in order to extend God’s Kingdom on earth which means to extend His reign over more people, and that means to proclaim the gospel nearby, far and wide so that lost sinners may turn to our loving and gracious Savior and through learning and obeying everything Jesus commanded us, they become sons (and daughters), saints, soldiers and soul-winners, and they join us to continually live for Jesus, following His leading and fulfilling His Great Commission. If any man or woman be found only sitting in the pew for one or two hours each week in church and have no daily communion with Him, no real demonstration of living for the Lord and service of Him, that man or woman has believed amiss and may in reality not be a true believer for faith without works is dead.
