THE CHRISTIAN BILL OF RIGHTS



If you are a Christian you need to know your rights.

According to Jesus and the Apostles, as a follower of Jesus, you have the right to:

*Give up everything for Christ: "In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples." - Jesus (Luke 14:33)

*Lay down your life for others: "Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters." (1 Jn. 3:16)

*Serve everyone God places in your path: "The greatest among you will be your servant." - Jesus (Mt. 23:11)

*Love God: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment." - Jesus (Mt. 22:37)

*Love other Christians: "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” - Jesus (Jn. 13:35)

*Love your enemies: "But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven." - Jesus (Mt. 5:43-48)

*Care for the poor: "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’" - Jesus (Mt. 25:40)

*Lose your life: "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it." - Jesus (Mt. 16:25)

Now that you know your rights, it's time to go out there and start exercising them.

Celebrate your freedom in Christ today!
