Fringes

A lot of people call themselves Christians but what does this mean? Many people think that this implies simply a belief in God, or a belief in God and Jesus. To pray occasionally, maybe go to church. Every now and then to read their bible…or not. Try to be a good person, honest, love others, give money to the Haiti relief fund. But what does it mean to BE a christian, these are all things we DO? What makes someone a committed Christian verses someone who is on the fringes?

Where would you say you are right now? How do you judge your own spiritual life? What standards/measurements do you use to say to yourself that you are either O.K. or that you need to change?
