What is a Christian?

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Alright, so yesterday was St. Patrick's Day, and I tried to post something, but ran out of time. I really wanted to post, especially since yesterday was my fourteenth birthday, which I am rather excited about. God has so blessed me in my short life so far...I only wonder what great things are to come.

Now, on a more serious note, dcf has started a chain of posts about what it means to be a Christian. {To see his post, click on the link on my sidebar(My Life As...), and go to the post entitled "A Christian Who Is Hurt."} In this post, he asked all the YCF to post about Christianity. I know I'm probably the last of us to do it, but better late than never.

So, what is it to be a Christian? What is a Christian? Who is God?

God is love, life, freedom, peace, satisfaction, and salvation. He is all-powerful, ever-present, all-knowing, eternal, and absolutely perfect.
A Christian is one who believes the above as well as that Jesus came to earth as a baby, lived a sinless life, died a humiliating death on the cross, and then rose from the dead three days later! My Redeemer lives!!!
Not only does a Christian love God, but they also love others. No matter what horrible things they have done to you or anyone, you are to love that person. Why? Because GOD LOVES THEM AS MUCH AS HE LOVES YOU!
A Christian also seeks after God and strives to be more like Him, through His power. A Christian pursues that relationship ardently.

So, YCF, did I use my sword well?
Write On!!!
