"Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. "
  -1 Peter 2:16



What does it mean to be “A Christian”
It means you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior. You believe that He is the Son of God who lived, died and rose from the dead to save you from your sins.

When a person accepts Jesus as their Savior they are freed of their sins. A Christian works hard to stop sinning but knows that they will sin again. The difference is Jesus will be there to pick them up, dust them off, and say I forgive you.Live in peace. The peace of knowing you are free of your sins is amazing.

Everyone is a work in progress and God is helping them grow in their love and dedication to Him. Christians are not perfect but they strive to please the Lord.

A Word about Sin
Sin will constantly attack your life. The important thing is when you hit your knees and ask forgiveness in Jesus name God forgives you and you are wiped of your sins. You must believe that. The devil uses your old sins to make you feel guilt and doubt about how you could ever be forgiven of such a sin. The truth is once you have laid that awful sin before the Lord you never need to give it another thought. Believe it: Christ died for your sins! You are forgiven!

How to Handle Sin
Let's use swearing as an example of how to handle sin in your life. On the paintball field things get ramped up and a Christian player lets a swear word go. A Christian will ask to be forgiven and say sorry to the players around them. They realize it’s not the way God wants them to speak. So, the next time things get hot on the field they remember to speak with honor and not obscenities. We are a constant work in progress. The point is you strive to move sin out of your life and keep the Lord close to you at all times.

Will we ever be able to live a perfect life and not sin?
No, not while we’re on this earth, but we still seek to follow Jesus and His perfect example for us. Christians are not perfect. They just try to live as Jesus would because He is their leader. On the paintball field people follow really good leaders and imitate their style of play. The same is true for Christians. Christians follow Jesus and try to imitate Him even though they never quite will until they get to heaven.
