I Assume So

I see many people who think different, act different even believe certain things differently, but ‘they’ as in some, seem to put themselves under the label of Christian. It doesn’t take much to call one a Christian these days as long as they do the key requirements in able to wear the badge, then you are a Christian, right? How could I honestly walk down the road and over hear two people talking about their church organization and know in my heart of hearts that they truly live ultimately for Father, it may give me a clue that they ‘know’ about God, but how do I actually know that they have a relationship with Father? It seems like the norm to qualify people as Christians if they go to church and bible studies and keep all the rules that apply to a ‘Christian’ according to their religious institution. However, does one really know ones heart’s by focusing on ones external performance? I can break the label “Christian” or “Believer” down into certain groups as religious institutions have done, but that doesn’t do anything but complicate how simple believing is and if you want to call this Christianity than do so. However, my point isn’t to bash certain institutional labels but to put the spot light on where Jesus is whether he is working in and through all of that and also working outside of that. I believe that Father can use people in institutions to shine Father’s light in the world, but, it’s not the institutions that do this, it’s not the building, structure, organization of sermons and bible studies. It is people, and the rest is just extra stuff. Father has amazing ways to use one person to bring His glory to the world than an army of mega churches. I believe He designed us individually to follow him, and in and through that unifies all of us, as the bible says, the body of Christ which is every single person who knows Father in an intimate way.
