What I mean by “I am a Christian”

After coming to Christ and to a life of obedience to what God teaches in his Word, it took me several years to understand that it is not so important to be able to become proud of the type of Christian that we are, but to be proud of the type of Savior we have, Jesus,  through whom we are adopted into the family of God, and become heir of His promises. This is part of what I mean when I say that I am a Christian.

What I mean when I say that I am a Christian - Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6, ESV)
