  1. This was awesome and on point Pastor Jarrid
    It is obvious that because we are living in times that we see people less and less want anything to do with something called “commitment”
    They would rather miss out on all the good and beneficial things that living a life as Christ-like as possible(Christians) would deliver

    God Bless!

  2. Am in line with what the author says.
    there is something we need to understand here. first lets talk about belief, believing simply means accepting that something or someone do exist or better still accepting that what this or that person says is true. On the hand, Christian just as the name sounds comes from the word Christ. simply put, Christian means follower of Christ.
    in the early days BC one could say the apostles were believers then AD they became Christians. it is worth noting that not all believers are Christians but all true Christians are believers.
    believers only accept but Christians accept and follow the teachings.
    we are saved by our believe in Jesus Christ as seen in Jn 3:16
    but as revelation tells us, we shall be rewarded according to what we have done
    Rev 22:12
    so if you believe and don’t work, start imagining how little your own reward will be.
    moreover, being a believer is a lot more easier than becoming a christian.
    but you however must believe before being a christian.

  3. There is a different between ‘i am following Him and i believe in Him.now, somebody can follow him but not believe in him and that does not make you one with Him but he that believes in Him as a True believer has one accord with Him.

  4. I am a True Follower & Believer of JESUS CHRIST and you will know me by the fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT. One bad apple can spoil the whole bunch.” True Followers of JESUS CHRIST live to bear good fruit, and this responsibility also includes discerning bad fruit.
