The True Meaning Of The Word #Christian is Christ-Like , meaning you are an imitator of Yeshuah HaMashiach. This must be reflected in the way we speak for the Word of God says in Luke 4:32 that "They were amazed at his teaching, because his words had authority" , you were empowered to dominate not to be subdued and even upon your own tongue God placed the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). Our Christ-Like Nature should also be reflected in the way we think, when we repent we have a mind renewal and we are empowered with the Mindset of Christ as written in 1 Corinthians 2:16 and we were told also in Philippians 4:8 to "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." This nature should also be reflected in the way we behave , to demonstrate that we are governed by the TORAH (meaning body of prophetic teachings, laws, direction, instruction, custom, manner) and led by the Spirit of God with the help of the Grace of God which appeared, to bring salvation to all and to train us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live in a manner that is self-controlled and righteous and godly as written in Titus 2 vs 11-12.
For the Word of God says in 1 John 2:6 "Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did"
