The sincere declaration that Jesus is Lord of your life will inevitably change the way you behave. Discover what it means to live a life of obedience with Christ as your focus and foundation. Behaving as a Christian is not about embracing certain regulations, but rather about fully submitting to Christ, and being sanctified and transformed by the Holy Spirit as God conforms the believer to the image of His Son. Only then will you desire, and be enabled, to do that which the Word of God calls you to do.
What does it really mean to be a Christian? In this study, Alistair identifies the essential elements of the believer’s life, starting first with conversion and then elaborating the manner in which believers are to act out their faith "To be a Christian," he says, "is to declare that Jesus is Lord. His Lordship affects both our minds - teaching us what to believe, as well as our morals - changing the way we live." While each follower of Christ has a unique calling, all Christians share the same fixed features of genuine faith.
The basic nature of the truths unpacked in this series should not be mistaken for elementariness. Far from being relevant to recent converts alone, these truths form the core of each stage of the believer’s life and apply equally to all Christians. Young believers and weathered saints alike will find Alistair’s examination of the "main things" of the Christian faith a useful and challenging way of assessing their experience
