A Christian is someone who has accepted Jesus as their Savior, and is following Jesus in 'the Spirit and the Word,' which are one and the same.
Scripture states and shows in example, in redundancy, that immediately, daily, and fervently, the number one priority of every Christian, every moment, of every day, is to have a heart of gratitude for the exceeding gift that they have received of eternal life through Jesus.
All stories in the Bible lead to Jesus. Newfound Christians are urged, encouraged, and commanded with love to immediately and permanently lead others to the hope and salvation of Jesus.
To receive the gift of Jesus from grace, and to take it for granted in preference for worldly priorities, is a short-sighted sin and travesty against God, against loved ones, against friends, and against all children of God.
'JESUS,' is every Word in the Bible.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father,) full of grace and truth.
The Word testifies that seeking to lead others to having a relationship with JESUS is the number one priority as a preacher, teacher, minister, Pastor, missionaries, etc., and the number one priority in life for all Christians.
Jesus 'is' life. Jesus is the only door to Heaven. Scripture states that tarrying in God's business of leading others to Jesus is a detestable sin that snubs the sacrifice and horror that Jesus endured for their sins.
Scripture sums up God's frustrations and pain in Revelation at the continual rejection of Jesus. Translated into layman's terms, it partially reads, "How much longer does the world want my Son Jesus to hang, suffering, and bleed at Calvary, until they say that it's good enough to accept Jesus and lead others in gratitude to Jesus?"
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
