A Christian Knows Christ
The only way to be a Christian is to know God. The Bible tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). Our prayer time is our personal time with God. This is the time when we block out the distractions of the world, and concentrate our attention strictly on our Creator. By connecting with God in this way, every day, we put ourselves in a better frame of mind to deal with everything we will face in our daily lives. In order to consider ourselves to be “believers” we have to be absolutely clear on what it is we actually believe in. We can do this through prayer and others means, but the Bible is the best place as it is the very Word of God – the source for everything that we all believe in.
