I Don't Want to Be an Only for the Moment Christian

If ye abide in Me, and My Words abide in You, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit: so shall ye be My disciples.  As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love.  If ye keep My Commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s Commandments, and abide in His love.  These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  This is My Commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  Greater love hath no man than this that a Man lay down His life for His friends.  Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  Henceforth I call you no servants: for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you.  John, Chapter 15, verses 7-15.
I don’t want to take this lightly, being an “Only for the Moment Christian,” then falling back into my old sinful ways again.  Jesus gave His life for me and for you.  He deserves a little more recognition than an occasional mention on special religious holidays or when we feel the need to go to church for family traditions.  He sacrificed so much for us which should warrant us trying to make a committed effort to be the Christian that Jesus would want us to be.

Since I've used this passage to relate it to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
