What does it mean to be a Christian? Pure and simply, it means to follow Jesus; to love Him; to learn of Him from His Word (the Bible); to immitate Him; to obey Him. It’s all about becoming more and more like Jesus.
It is illustrated beautifully in the following verse:
“And as he (Jesus) passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And he rose and followed him.” (Mark 2:14)
