Christianity Is A Lifestyle Not A Label

Christianity is not just a religion, or a way of identifying some certain people, there’s more to it than that.

A Christian is a true follower of Christ, The name “Christian” was called in Antioch, a part in Galatians which means “CHRIST LIKE”. Acts 11:26

We are created in the image and likeness of God, and redeemed by his blood, for that reason, we were given the power to become the sons of God John 1:12

We are meant to portray Christ as he was when he was on earth, we are meant to be like him, since he has giving us the power to. We are meant to walk in his light.

As a Christian, we are bound to possess every Christ-like qualities, yes your light as a Christian is meant to shine for the world to see. Matthew 5.16

And if your light doesn’t reflect the life of Christ, that is when Christianity is said to be a label.


Here are 20 Lifestyle Of A Christian.

  1. They are spiritually minded.
  2. They are prayerful
  3. They are humble
  4. They do all things with wisdom
  5. They have a forgiving spirit.

Christianity is lifestyle cos we walk with power and full minded that we are sons of the most high, we can do what Christ did, and even much more. When you finally realize who you are in Christ, miracle, power, signs and wonders becomes a lifestyle- why? Cos we have the mind of Christ, and we were made a new creature, the day we believe.

The mind is a powerful tool, and those who understand its place and use in Christ, knows they carry great power. “Renew your mind through the word of God “

Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
-Romans 12:2

search deep down inside you, does your Christianity lifestyle shows the light of Christ in you? Or is it just a label?


Christianity is not a label, it is a lifestyle. It is a light in your heart, and you have to let it shine.

  1. Well said..!!! You hit the nail right on the head
    These days the war against Christianity is real and it as though we should be apologetic for what we stand for or who we are in Christ. Hopefully, i put together a post on this, as i am tired of having to be stigmatized because of my values.

  2. Fantastic. I enjoyed your post. It is apt for the present time. There is lack of total commitment and surrender. People come to church to just hang around. May God help us to be much more than the name. Thanks again. God bless you. Keep writing and posting.

  3. Perfectly done. As an independent Christian who is trying to get my message out on Christian Spirituality, you did a great job. I go a little further than fully justifying Christianity, but in the scope of pure Christianity you nailed it! It’s very hard to come up with 20 practices all Christians should do and not open up unbridled controversy… And you did that great as well.

  4. You’re so right! Being a Christian is definitely a lifestyle. It’s who we are as displayed in our actions, daily life and virtues. Having love and showing love is the biggest identifier of a true Christian (John 13:34,35).

    Prophet Jesus (Peace be upon him) was a man of Truth, who spoke with the permission of GOD, and performed miracle through the permission of GOD ❤ .. Indeed those who believe in ONE GOD are believers 😊

      1. I am glad I met an amazing person like you ! You are the type of person about whom Allah said in Quran..

        82: You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah ; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.

        83: And when they hear what has been revealed to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so register us among the witnesses.

        84: And why should we not believe in Allah and what has come to us of the truth? And we aspire that our Lord will admit us [to Paradise] with the righteous people.”

        85: So Allah rewarded them for what they said with gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. And that is the reward of doers of good.

        Chapter 5 verses 82-85
        The Noble Quran
