So what exactly is a Christian? Is it a person who believes certain things? Or maybe a person who does certain things? Or is it perhaps a person who experiences certain things? Yes. Bingo. That is correct….on all counts. All three of those characteristics describe what it means to be a Christian.
You cannot be a Christian without believing in Jesus as your Savior. Secondly, you are not a Christian unless you experience “streams of living water” flowing within you. That is the presence of God inside your body and soul. Without that experience, you are not born again no matter how much window dressing there may be in your outer life of religion and morality. Finally, you are not a Christian if you are not following Jesus. That is the “doing” part.
