Have you seen someone and you’re wondering if the person is a Christian?
Did someone claimed to be a Christian and you’re having some doubts about the person?
Do you want to know of the way to know a true Christian?
This Article is for you!
Welcome to this blog once again and thank you for checking in!
Today we’ll be enlightening you on one of the most important topics in Christianity.
How To Know A True Christian
1. By Their Fruit
The Bible gave us a hint of how to detect a true Christian in the book of Matthew 7:16 which says “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”. And also I’m the book of John 15:16 which says “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you”.
So if someone walks to you and tell you he’s a Christian, check the person’s life.
What type of fruits is the person bearing?
How is the person’s character?
What is the response or behavior of the person towards the lust of the flesh?
Although you ain’t advised to judge from the appearance alone but if you go close to anyone then those vital things will begin to unwrap and you’ll see them.
2. The Discernment of the Holy Spirit
This is the most perfect and accurate way to know who is a true believer However, many Christians find this way difficult as not all of them posses the spirit of discernment.
If you’re a christian today and someone comes pretending like a christian (wolves in sheet clothing) the Spirit of God in you will definitely minister to you about that.
But the problem is that we don’t follow the lead of the Spirit, we rather want to lead the Spirit.
I pray that God help us and show us mercy Amen!
