The primary signs that occur to me: -- Imitating Christ (Ephesians 5:1) -- Living to serve Christ (Galatians 2:20) -- Obeying Christ (John 14:15) -- Not conforming to the world (Romans 12:2) -- Loving and forgiving others as God has loved and forgiven him/her for Christ's sake (John 13:35; 1 Corinthians 13:1-3; Colossians 3:13) -- Bearing good fruit (Matthew 7:18-20; Galatians 5:22-23)
I believe the signs of a true believer will be evident to the people in their lives. Change of Direction When a person puts their faith in Jesus as a true believer, they have confessed their sin and decided in their mind to forsake their old way of life in the world and to follow Jesus into a brand new life. Change of Focus A true believer's life is no longer focused on pleasing or indulging themselves, but in pleasing God and obeying what Jesus says to do by His Spirit. Their relationship with God becomes the most important thing in their life. Change of Purpose A true believer wants to share their new found faith, to proclaim the gospel and share their personal testimony. A true believer wants to grow up in their faith from a spiritual infant to a mature and complete leader in the kingdom of God. Change of Discipline A true believer will study the bible to get to know God (his nature and character) and to understand God's plan and purpose for their life. A true believer will spend time in prayer every day to lift up the needs of others who are important to them. Change of Family A true believer will want to participate in the local church, for worship, fellowship, service, spiritual growth and to evangelise other people. A true believer will use their spiritual gifts to serve and care for others in the body of Christ as their spiritual family. Of course, all of these changes don't happen at once, but over time, these transformations will be apparent to everyone who knows them well.
