I have been preaching for weeks on the difference between a Christian and a follower of Jesus Christ. The very short answer is a Christian BELIEVES in Jesus Christ and a follower of Jesus Christ has FAITH in Him. By that same token, I also anoint with oil, and lay on hands, but I don’t expect a miracle, I have FAITH God will perform a miracle.

I have a two pronged approach as a minister, first I am responsible to God for bringing souls to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (becoming a Christian). Second I am resonpible to God to teach Christians how to follow of Jesus Christ (becoming a follower of Jesus Christ).

Being a Christian is realitively easy, being a follower of Jesus Christ requires much work on the part of the follower.

All of this requires we have faith above belief, after all, we once believed in the Easter Bunny.
