CHRISTIAN: A PURSUIT, NOT JUST A BELIEF

I'm learning that being a Christian is less of just a belief and more of a constant following. Christ-follower. 

"Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses." - Timothy 6:12 

Notice how Paul describes the life of a Christian as a FIGHT.  How many fights do you fight passively?! The Christian life is a constant battle. Being a Christian is a consistent pursuit of Jesus.

There is a life God has called us to, a life full of all that is good,        and because of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are now LIVING that life. So be intentional! Grasp it! Have ownership of the life God has given you through the cross!

-and do so through community. You confessed your faith in Christ in public, and so you should seek Christ with others as well. Church is key. Coal doesn't remain hot unless it is surrounded by other hot coals... Be active in a community of believers, and let others see your passionate following after Jesus.

APPLICATION

 Our lives aren't lived passively, purposeless, or alone. God has given us life in Christ. So seek Jesus actively, on purpose, and alongside other believers.
