Activities of a Christian

What should a Christian be doing and what should a church be teaching them to do?

If they believe Jesus is God and Lord of all they should be promoting this viewpoint and demonstrating that it is true by expressing the authority Jesus has delegated to them as well as showing his character in all they do.

They will:

Defend his name and Character

Protect His kingdom and its people from His enemy

Attack the kingdom of his enemy and expand The Kingdom of Jesus by rescuing people             from the enemy kingdom

Do His Will in all they do.

Their love for Jesus, because of what he has done for them, will be their motivation.

If they Love people in the way Jesus loves them then they will do all they can to help these people follow Jesus and avoid their going to hell.

They will teach people what Jesus has done for them so they can appreciate His love for them and they will teach these people how to enter into a correct relationship with Jesus and The Father (salvation) and how to live the life God requires of them (evangelism and Discipling).

The church does not usually teach or do these things, or is not resting from doing these things or are not learning how to do these things so how can they say they are a follower of Jesus?

The final words of Jesus to those who would be His followers can be summarized as follows:

"All power (authority) in heaven and in earth has beed given to Me.

Go and teach all nations that I have risen,

Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you

And that you should preach repentance and remission of sins in My name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

He that believes in whom I am and is baptized  shall go to heaven to be with me; but he that believes not shall go to hell.

These signs shall follow them that believe in whom I Am;

 In my name shall they cast out devils;

They shall speak with new languages they do not know;

They shall take up snakes and not be hurt by them;

And if they drink any poison, it shall not hurt them;

They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover

And remember that I am with you always."

Jesus also said that if we love Him we would do these thing.

So are you doing these things, teaching them to others, learning how to do them or resting from doing them.

When you face Jesus what will you say to him if you are not doing any of these things?

Remember, those who teach such as pastors, ministers, theologians will have the greater condemnation if they were not doing these things.
