Christianity is being a follower of Jesus Christ. That means a Christian is someone who knows Jesus and is trying to be like him. However, those who seriously attempt to be like Jesus discover that such a thing is impossible. We all fall far short of the standard Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated. In the Bible such shortcomings are called sin. Sin causes us to be separated from God, and to deserve the punishment of death – spiritual death. But Jesus not only lived a perfect life, He also died and rose again for those who can’t live up to his standard. Jesus paid the punishment we deserve when He died, so now we can be brought into a relationship with God and empowered by God to live like Jesus. “Christians” are those who have such a transforming relationship with God. They have completely trusted Jesus’ death as a substitute for their own and have given their lives entirely to Him as their Master.

"For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God."
"As it is written: None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one. Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive. The venom of asps is under their lips. Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes."
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ROMANS 10:9“if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
"For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”"
"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
