More complicated than it has to be

" ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come." - 1st Thessalonians 1:9b-10 (KJV)
We make being a believer much too complicated and here Paul reduces it to three verbs: Turn, Serve, and Wait - in that order.

Being a Christian is simply turning from idols (the things we value more than God), Serving the living and true God (not accomplishing great things for God, just simply serving Him), and waiting for Jesus to return.

Pretty simple.
