    To me being a Christian means striving to have the MIND and HEART of Christ. Being HIS example in all things and relying on HIM for the everyday occurences in life.. big or small! It means spending quality time with him and in HIS WORD. We cannot get to know someone if we do not spend quality time with them.

    Being a Chistian is being Christ - like.
    Living for Him..loving Him and spending quality time with Him.
    Jesus is Lord of all or He is not Lord at all...
    He is my Lord and Savior...my Husband and Father to my children (husband to the widows and Father to the fatherless).
    He is my everything.
    Christians are followers of Christ.

    Being a Christian means picking your cross up and following Jesus. Set an example to others, try to follow the 10 commandments, loving the Trinity(Father, Son, and Holy Ghost), love everyone, being faithful.

    being a christian is following his footsteps.
    being his disciple.
    following so close that you get the dust from his feet.
    staying clean and living for him.

    To me being a Christian is being a follower of Jesus Christ. This includes being obedient and praising Him. When we fall short we are to confess right away. We are to pray without ceasing and stay in fellowship with other believers. We are to read and study the Word and follow the examples we are given there. The rewards for this include peace, eternal life and the fullness our faith yields. Having a new life we do not want to continue in sin and when our flesh fails us, as it always will, we know we can turn at once and get back on the straight and narrow road. As we grow we become more Christlike and can be better examples of what a Christian is.

    To me being a Christian is living for Jesus--you know trying to be like him. I also think to be a Christian you also have to invite him into your heart. You should also look forward to being in heaven and be faithful to Jesus.

    To be a Christian means to REALLY love, respect, serve God, and believe that He sent His ONE AND ONLY Son, Jesus Christ, to die for OUR sins. Being a Christian is a beautiful relationship between you and God.

    Being a Christian means knowing in your heart AND confessing with your tongue that Jesus is savior. You must turn over all worries to him and confess all sins.
