True Christianity

“True Christianity is not about adding Jesus to my life. Instead, it is about devoting myself completely to Him – submitting wholly to His will and seeking to please Him above all else. It demands dying to self and following the Master, no matter the cost. In other words, to be a Christian is to be Christ’s slave (Slave, John MacArthur).

Have we tried to turn Christianity into a religion that’s all about us, rather than all about Christ? It should not be about making us feel good or bringing us success; rather, true Christianity is about pleasing God and bringing honor to Him. We are His slaves, His property, for Him to do with as He will. We belong to Him. Are we living so that others can tell that He is our Master?

  1. Excellent points! I just pray that I can be a better slave. Thank you for turning it all around here and placing it all on its proper end.
