To live eternally with Jesus Christ at the end of this life's journey in HIS paradise where there is no stealing, banditry, decay or crime etc. A place of peace and eternal joy.

I know it is very cheesy but I like the shirt. "Be the moon reflect the SON." Seriously as christians we are to mirror Jesus as much as possible.

Chemo' did something for me! Many times out from something so,miserable & painfull can produce a real vision spiritually the Lord desires... More Respect,honor & appreciation! reverance Him! As nev'r before! I know He wants be the main focus in my life! Do I make mistakes? He's right there .... Yes,but, I come before Him quickly! forgive me...pick myself up! Thankfull for the good & the bad.

I have to agree with Cluny.
Everything is about Christ.
I also agree with the Apostle Paul,
Puil 3:8 "Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ"

Obey Christ's commandments.

What is the ultimate aim of a christian?
---mohankumar on 8/20/11
for ME there can only one ONE answer to this question:
TO MAKE DISCIPLES
---francis on 8/22/11|
so how do you be like christ? does that mean you just obey all the verses in the bible or obey when somebody quotes you should do this or that?
if people are abusing you, should you roll over & just accept it or speak up.
christ was not a fool, not a robot or a puppet. he spoke up against injustice, abuse, power & interacted with the poor.

To enter in and stay in a very close intimate relationship with Him. This requires obedience to His Word at all cost.
To Worship Father God and Jesus and Holy Spirit.
To touch God's heart and have God minister His Love to me.
To walk in a state of forgiveness towards those who hurt and betray me.
To pour into other's lives what God has poured into my life. i.e., Love, Healing, Compassion, Mercy, etc.

to love God with everything, and to treat others as you do yourself.
(good thing i have a good defense Lawyer.)

"What is the ultimate aim of a christian?"
That we, by the faith of The Son, a faith that we have been privileged to embrace and exercise, present ourselves a living sacrifice, soft and pliable, that we may be molded to conformed to the Image of the Son. "Till we [may be brought to] the unity of the faith, and [to] the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" Rom 12:1>Rom 8:29>Eph 4:13

The ultimate goal of the believer should be to SURPASS what is written.
A Godly person should have the ability to do 'right' without being ordered or commanded to do so (conscience beyond obedience, Ephesians 5:8) and let their daily "walk" be their prayer offering to God (Ephes. 5:2 and John 3:4).
A believer must also have a "heart of flesh" (not a heart of stone) that knows the sentiment of "living water" tears of sorrow/love (John 7:38, God's Spirit agrees with "the water and the blood").
Having a true LOVE RELATIONSHIP is done by moving on from "milk" to "solid food" and having a "faith for faith" (Romans 1:17).
Verses are from the RSV.

Tommy is correct, the ultimate goal of a Christian is to glorify God. Not so to get what we want, but to give glory and honor to the Lord. Thank you Tommy.
---Mark_V. on 8/21/11|
" What is the ultimate aim of a christian?" To know Him and as others have said, to become like Him.
i think of
Eph3:19 "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." and Phil 3:7-14
---Chria9396 on 8/21/11|
Well, at any time, we can pray for whatever is God's aim, at that time.

The main goal or aim of a moderator should be to spell their post titles correctly :)
A Christians main focus should be on sanctification through righteous living.
Not so much that it turns other non-believers off, but to show them that their is a good wholesome way of life in Christ.
The goal is to win souls into the kingdom, which is truly your aim.
Christians think they can do so while remaining in their sins, wrong, not going to happen.
Let your light shine before men that they may see them and glorify your Heavenly Father.

My aim as a Christian is not to just share Jesus with people by words but to show people Jesus by my actions. A most important thing is to fellowship with God. The Bible says humankind was made for fellowship with God and the only way one can do that is to accept Jesus and live in obedience to God. We are to love God,one another,and even the unloveable. 1 John 4:7,8 Beloved let us love one another for love is of God, he that loves knows God and he who doesn't love,doesn't know God. The aim should be, for all,to let God lead us and do what he calls us to do. For all of that we must learn God's Word,the Bible,for it has the answers to life and serving God.

The ultimate goal of a Christian is to glorify God and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet. Our whole life should be submitted and dedicated to this simple goal.
---tommy3007 on 8/20/11|
Being conformed fully to the image and likeness of God, measured by the fullness of the stature of Christ.
And God has all eternity for that, if we let HIm.
St. Seraphim of Sarov was asked the identical question by his friend, Nicholas Motovilov. He said, in brief, "The acquisition of the Holy Spirit," which is the same thing. You can read his entire teaching on line.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

To grow more like Christ everyday(here on earth) and ultimately receive the gift of eternal life. This life will not be perfect.There are no guarantees we will be rich, have no problems or pains. Sometimes our situation worsens because satan stays on our backs and constantly try to turn us against Christ.Satan does not like to lose followers. But if we remain faithful to Jesus Christ until the end, we will receive eternal life and be with Jesus, in paradise.
