Many Call Themselves Christians are You Really Saved

Through my experiences on the streets witnessing to people, I learned that many will proclaim to be Christians. Here’s the truth though, very few of the people who claim to be born again are living a lifestyle that resembles Christ.

1John5:18
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin.
2Cor5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2Cor13:5
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?

Many call themselves Christians; examine yourself to see if you are in the faith. Jesus said that we would know them (Christians) by their fruit. “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35)

That’s the very best of the good fruit.

Sexual immorality, drunkenness, greed, hatred, and unforgiveness, just to name a few, are considered to be bad fruit. What type of fruit is your life producing? Calling yourself a Christian and bearing the fruit of a Christian are very different. Many will say to the Lord when they die, I did this and that in your name and he will say depart from me, I never knew you.

Please don’t examine others actions and how they live their lives but look into your own today! Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For God wants your life to resemble a healthy fruit tree.

Good Questions for Discussion:

How do you know you are saved?

Do you interact with God daily?

Who do you know that proclaims to be a Christian, but their life does not reflect the attributes of God. Comment without using names.

Prayer: God help me to examine my relationship with you in a truthful and transparent way.
