“The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” Acts 11:26 We who follow Christ bear His name.  In the first century, the term Christian had a certain appropriateness, for it implied loyalty and acceptance of a person, and that person was the Messiah, Jesus Christ.  The true modern use of the word follows the same tradition. The Christian is one who accepts Jesus as Lord.  As followers of Christ today, we gladly bear His name as our Savior, Lord, and Friend.  Don’t be a Christian in name only.
