When the Holy Spirit lives in us we are inspired to be witnesses and do good works. Being a Christian is definitely more than just sitting in a chair, more than going to a church service, and more than just making yourself into the best version of you.
Being a Christian is serving like Jesus.
Firstly, serving fellow believers.

There are so many good things to do, but what should I be doing?
