    I’m a Christian, Do You Really Know Me?

    Let’s talk Christianity. Sometimes I think it gets a bad rap. When you look at how the media and culture talk about us, there are some major misconceptions of what truly it means to follow Christ. Let’s go into detail below as to what being Christian REALLY is.

    I’m a follower of Christ. Have we met?

    I’m not judging you for your sin. I sin, too.

    I’m going to love you no matter what.

    I pray—a lot—and I’ve prayed for you.

    I believe that God’s Word is truth.

    No, I won’t take scripture out of context to fit your lifestyle.

    I’m not living in the dark ages. I, too, enjoy good music (Sleeping at Last, Mumford and Sons!), movies (I watch PG-13- and R-rated movies, but I am choosy!) and books (Harry Potter, Hunger Games for the win!).

    I struggle with sin as much as anyone else.

    I get depressed, anxious and sad, too.

    I can’t imagine a life without the hope that is found in Christ.

    I don’t know scripture by heart. (I try really hard, though!)

    I need quiet time. It’s not me being introverted; it’s where I feel the Holy Spirit the most.

    If you need a shoulder to cry on, I’m here.

    I won’t push my faith on you.

    I will ask to pray for you because I love you and care for you.

    I struggle with worldly desires a lot.

    I struggle with giving to others, as that means I may not be able to afford the next iPhone.

    I struggle to hear God at times…in those times, I yearn for Him even more.

    I’ve cried out to God for help, literally cried.

    My life isn’t perfect.

    Worship to me is sacred. It’s where I can fully embrace the Spirit.

    It doesn’t matter if your religion isn’t the same as mine—you’re welcome in my church.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re a homosexual, bisexual or transgender—you’re welcome in my church.

    I talk to God like I talk to my friends.

    I get angry and impatient. It’s something I continue to work on day in and day out.

    I have seen God work in me and through me. To see this change is overwhelmingly AWESOME. It’s powerful and beyond measure—the greatest thing anyone can ever experience. I want others to experience this life-altering way of life as well. This gift wasn’t free; it was given to us through Christ dying on the cross. This gift is that: a gift. I understand that and know that we all fall short of the glory of God, but through His grace, we are alive if we accept Him as our personal savior.

    Are you ready to join me?

    1. I was definitely nodding at basically all these characteristics. Remembering these things about ourselves is a great way to help us put our role as Christian girls into perspective. Especially when we are making friends with and witnessing to non-Christ followers.

    2. This is literally my favorite poem of all time.

      WHEN I SAY, “I AM A CHRISTIAN”
      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
      I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes
      That’s why I chose this way”

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I don’t speak with human pride
      I’m confessing that I stumble –
      needing God to be my guide

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I’m not trying to be strong
      I’m professing that I’m weak
      and pray for strength to carry on

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I’m not bragging of success
      I’m admitting that I’ve failed
      and cannot ever pay the debt

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I don’t think I know it all
      I submit to my confusion
      asking humbly to be taught

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I’m not claiming to be perfect
      My flaws are far too visible
      but God believes I’m worth it

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I still feel the sting of pain
      I have my share of heartache
      which is why I seek God’s name

      When I say, “I am a Christian”
      I do not wish to judge
      I have no authority
      I only know I’m loved

    3. Judged by being labeled happens to everyone.
      I think if you pray to God to change hearts of hurtting people, he would give you a chance to tell the people they are loved by a might God.
