The Name Game

I had an interesting conversation yesterday. Someone said to me "I'm a believer but I'm not a christian." I asked what they meant by that. They said I believe God died on the cross for sins and rose on the 3rd day. I believe he is alive. I just don't believe he did it for me." (I working on that with them.)

Anyway this got me to thinking. I've heard people say they are "Christian they go to church but all this about living it daily is nothing." I heard people say I'm more than a christian I'm a believer in Christ." People also say things like born again or child of God. There are so many names.

Why are we so caught up in what we call ourselves. All these terms can mean different things. If we are willing to have a relationship with Jesus and let the Holy Spirit dwell in us that is all that matters. So lets not get caught up in the name game. Put the games away and get serious about our relationship with The Lord of our life.
