gold_smeltingRead John 13:18-38. There are differences between those who only claim to be a Christian and really are. Being a Christian means that you love God and are committed to Him. Being a Christian means that you love others and are committed to them (Mark 12:30-31). Being a Christian means that you listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus (John 9:16). And, if you love Him, you will keep His commands (John 14:15).

When Jesus comes again, He will separate the sheep from the goats (Matthew 25:31-32), and the wheat from the chaff. He will reward you for your faith according to what you have done (Matthew 25:34), or, if you are not real, He will send you away (Matthew 25:41). Because someone claims they are a Christian does not make them one. So, be careful! God will not be mocked.
