To be a Christ-follower and to become more Christ-like are two commitments that you take on when you are baptized, but what exactly does it mean to become more Christ-like? If you’re anything like me, you were probably a tad confused when your pastor brought up the subject. It’s really simpler than it seems. These are but a few examples:
- Help others any way that you can. This includes assisting with projects, volunteering, anything you can think of!
- Follow God’s law. The Ten Commandments are only scratching the surface.
- Praise the Lord our God, even when faced with adversity and/or persecution. Do not let others force you to denounce your faith or deny His existence.
- Love everyone as He loves you.
If you can be more Christ-like, then you are already started on the path to becoming a Christ-follower.
Senior pastor Dave Stone of Southeast Christian Church discussed in one of his sermons that we should strive to pray not once a day, not twice a day, but continuously. The more we feel comfortable talking to God, the stronger our connection to Him becomes. I wholeheartedly agree with Dave’s mindset.
If you have more questions on this topic, please don’t hesitate to ask your pastor for further guidance.
