How to Recognize a Christian

When a consecrated believer follows the Lord faithfully several evidences appear sooner or later.  Meekness and quietness of spirit become, in time, characteristics of daily life.  Other outward signs are:

  1. Grateful acceptance of the will of God as it comes in the hourly events of each day
  2. Pliability in the hands of God to do or bear whatever he assigns us
  3. A sweet disposition, even under provocation
  4. Calmness in the midst of turmoil and confusion
  5. Willingness to let others have their way
  6. Refusal to notice slights and wrongs
  7. Absence of worry, anxiety and fear
