What is a real Christian?

June 26, 2022

Through many years of ministry, I have been on a mission to please God with who I am as a person, the best I know how in the moment and environment I am given. I mean, in what we call “Christianity” that’s pretty much the goal at any given moment when we simplify the word of God and His expectations of us as living beings.

Titus 2:7 (ESV) Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,

Leave here knowing that everybody’s best doesn’t look like your best. Everyone’s environment doesn’t look like your environment. I encourage the people of God to take your mouth off of those that are living and doing their best to meet God where they’re at!

The crazy thing is that being a “Real Christian” doesn’t have a look. It doesn’t look like man in a suit, ruffled socks, 90’s beehive hair, or a skirt down to the ankles. A lot of times “Real Christians” look like gangsters, tired mothers, the elderly, college girls, working processionals, scammers, LGBT+. To me ” Real Christians” are the people in the trenches, with a serious prayer life.

In having conversations with thousands of people, I understand that we are all in different places in how we love God. Just know, as we come to love God we are all doing something wrong. Nobody has it all together. NOT ONE SOUL!

Romans 3:23 (NIV) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Most times you have to be from the ugly places to have the experience of what the wrong thing is, what it feels like, what it smells like, what it tastes like…. If you never have the experiences, then you can never trust God to take you out the experience, give Him the credit for it, observe what He took you out of in the word, and share it with concrete evidence that the Lord is who He says He is.

Body of Christ, take your mouth off of the people, take the sty out your eye. Encourage and relate to their right now place. Remember there was a time someone was holding your hair from falling in the toilet after you left the club, someone was rolling your blunts, sliding you condoms, helping you get your Uber home. That wasn’t too long ago from some. Extend love, understanding, education, and move on to the next soul that needs help getting to the father in their time of need.
