You Might Be a Christian If...
Jesus taught that to be His disciple would demand great
change in a person’s life. He said there must be self-denial and a
daily crucifixion of one’s self in order to follow Him. A person
would need to lose his own life for Jesus’ sake in order to save it.
What would such a life look like? Considering Jesus’ own
life and teachings, let us take some snapshots of the life of a
disciple of Christ. You might be a Christian if...
