My husband has always been a very kind man with tremendous patience and tolerance. He is very wise in that he avoids trouble preferring peace. Loyal and loving, faithful and gentle and with a calm presence. But, he doesn't call himself a Christian. He knows of the Lord but is just coming to KNOW the Lord. He was born with Christ like qualities, as we all are, and, happily,chose to use them. He has displayed the Fruits of The Spirit. God is at work!
I hope you are following me because I am trying to say that we ALL have God given values and virtues and whether you realise it or not, they are Christ like and when you display them you are being a Christian. I see these values and virtues every single day in people in my home town too - in church goers and non church goers.
