When a person takes on the name of being called Christian, there should be the evidence of such a life. To be a born again follower of Christ means God has touched your heart. You’ve felt the need to repent of your sin, you become under conviction that you’re separated from God because of your sinfulness.

When a person takes on the name of being called Christian, there should be the evidence of such a life. To be a born again follower of Christ means God has touched your heart. You’ve felt the need to repent of your sin, you become under conviction that you’re separated from God because of your sinfulness.
Then you seek out God by calling upon the name of His Son. He is the only way to be saved. And when you call out to Jesus, He will come, and as you confess your sin and waywardness, seeking His forgiveness, pledging your total allegiance from that time on. Jesus will be faithful to forgive and forget your sins and give you a new start in life.
You’re born again by the Holy Spirit of God now working in your heart to change your life and reform how you live. You are to be now a new person in Christ. You may look mostly the same on the outside, but there should be visible changes soon to take place on the inside.
In Matthew 9:37 & 38, Jesus said this: “Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.’”
When a person claims they belong to Jesus, that they are a Christian, they must do so not only in words, but also in deeds. You don’t work to gain position with God, but you go into the harvest fields to do the work for His kingdom that He is counting on you to do.
The shifts are not all the same, the plans may be very different than ours. The conditions as well because God understands where you’ll be able to serve Him best and He will be involved in your entire process if you‘ll seek His help.
