do all things as if we are doing them for Jesus, even the most tedious jobs will not seem as bad! Flipping burgers, tagging clothes…
are called to be salt and light, putting off things like sexual immorality, greed, bad talk and dirty language. Really putting into practice what we learn!
The Christian is called to be light. There is a giant flame that never goes out, and we are the smaller tea lights in a darkened world.

Firstly, if we dare to call ourselves Christians, we need to know what that means… essentially someone who is trusting in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sin through the death of Jesus on the cross.

You live the Christian life from day one as a Christian… and all Christians are still learning regardless of their physical age or length of service.
You’re meant to be a Christian… by God’s grace LIVE IT!
