What does it mean to be a Christian?
Today's Devotional Scriptures:
We all have an idea of what being a Christian should look like. But if we’re being honest, our views are often influenced by our cultural values, our politics, our background, and what’s currently going on in the world around us. If we were to strip away all those outside influences, what would our faith actually look like?
Cultures will change and values will shift, but God’s Word will always reveal the foundations of our beliefs.
So starting today, we’ll take a closer look at some questions about God, the Holy Spirit, sin, and baptism and discover what the Bible tells us about each of them.
But before we get started, keep in mind that the purpose of this Plan isn’t to argue for or against a particular denomination, doctrine, or philosophical position. The purpose is to provide clarity around some common Christian questions by rooting each day in Scripture, and providing practical action steps.
So to help us do this, we’re laying out four foundational statements that each day will automatically assume to be true.
To get the most out of this Plan, try processing each day with a friend, and use the daily content as a starting point for deeper conversations about what it means to know God and make Him known.
