"Analysis Of A Christian"

"Are you a Christian, Mrs. Smith?" asked Donnie.

"Yes," she answered absentmindedly.

"What is a Christian?" Donnie continued earnestly.

This time Mrs. Smith hesitated a moment before replying.
"Well, Donnie, a Christian is one who believes in Jesus."

"I believe in Jesus, too," Donnie said and went off to play, his curiosity
satisfied for the moment.

Mrs. Smith continued to think of the question, "What is a Christian?"  
She realized her answer to Donnie was insufficient, for didn't the Bible say that even the devils believe?
Putting all else aside she got her Bible and sat down to find a more complete description of a Christian.

A Christian is:

A Christian is a disciple, learner and follower of Christ (Acts 11:26).
To be a disciple one must receive Christ, become a child of God by the new birth
(John 1:12-13; 3:3).
That makes him a new creature (II Cor. 5:17).
By virtue of this new nature he is a saint of God (Rom. 1:7; Eph. 2:19).
He is a brother (or sister) to Christ and to fellow Christians (Mark 3:35; Heb. 2:11).
He loves God and man (I John 4:19-21).
He seeks for truth (II Tim. 2:15).
He heareth or listens to Godís Word and obeys it (John8:47; Matt. 7:21).
He strives to be like Christ (Rom. 8:29; 12:2; & Phil. 2:5).
He seeks to serve the Lord and others (John 12:26; Col. 3:24; Ďal. 5:13; & 6:10).
He lives in love, by faith, with hope (Titus 2:11-14).
