How to Spot a Christian

Revelation 14:4



How to Spot a True Christian
It's not the outward gilding 1 Sam 16:7; Eccl 7:22
But the inward man of heart 1 Sam 16:7; Psa 27:8
That marks them as peculiar Acts 4:13; 1 Pet 2:9
And from others set apart Psa 4:3; Luke 12:32; James 1:21
For they look like other people 1 Sam 16:7; Luke 12:32; 2 Cor 4:6
In outward dress and walk John 7:24; 1 Thes 1:5; 1 Pet 1:15
But it's their speech betrays them Rom 10:15; Eph 5:11; Col 1:28
When they commence to talk Psa 145:11; 2 Cor 3:12;
They claim the promise of eternal life John 10:28; 17:3
With immortality gained through Him 1 Cor 15:53; Titus 2:11; 2 Tim 1:10
It's not of man but from God 1 Thes 4:14; 2 Tim 1:10
The grave is not the bitter end John 6:40; Acts 17:31
The dead will soon awaken John 5:28-29; Acts 26:23; 1 Cor 15:20
And come to their border again Jer 31:16-17; 1 Thes 4:16
And those Bible histories 1 Cor 10:11; 2 Pet 1:21
They treasure every one 1 Cor 10:11; Heb 10:1
As sacred types and shadows Heb 8:5; 10:1
Of better things to come Matt 5:18; Col 2:17; Heb 9:23
Christ's work is their foundation 1 Cor 3:11; Eph 2:20
And not the creeds of men Matt 15:9; 1 Cor 1:19
His truth their shield and buckler Psa 91:4; 119:160
From error guides them Psa 33:4; 119:104
They talk about His kingdom Psa 145:11; Heb 7:19
The golden age to come Matt 6:10; Acts 3:21
When all blind eyes shall open Isa 35:5; 1 Cor 4:5
The lame shall leap and run Isa 35:6; Matt 11:5
The redeemed return to Zion Isa 1:27; 35:10; 51:11; Exo 15:13
All sorrow and sighing flee Isa 35:10; 52:9; Rev 21:4
The desire of all nations Hag 2:7; John 6:45
This earth an Eden once again Isa 35:1, 6; Rev 22:2
But not by man's own work John 15:5; Jude 1:15
To God they are set apart Psa 50:5; 2 Tim 2:21
Their money, time and talent Rom 12:1-3; 1 Tim 6:17-19
They give with willing heart Luke 6:38; 2 Cor 9:7
They care not for earth's treasures Matt 6:19-20; Luke 12:33
The heavenly prize they would win Rom 2:4-11; Phil 3:14
And gladly toil and suffer Rom 8:18; 1 Tim 4:10; 2 Tim 2:12
That redemption song to sing Eph 5:19; Rev 5:9; 14:3
Would you like to be a creature John 17:16; 2 Cor 5:17; Col 3:10
That walks the narrow way Matt 7:14; Eph 4:24; Heb 12:14
Then make your consecration 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Thes 4:3
Count the cost: decide today Luke 14:28; 2 Tim 2:21;1 Pet 3:15
If you stand for Christ 1 Cor 16:13; 2 Thes 2:15; Rev 2:10
It will mean contempt and scorn Acts 5:41; Rom 12:14; 1 Pet 2:20
It will be too late for glory Luke 13:24-25; Rom 1:32; 2:2-3; 2 Cor 5:10
When the true Christians are gone. 1 Cor 15:52; 1 Thes 4:17; Rev 3:21; 22:4
