A Christian Life Is Not An Easy Life, But It Is The Best Life!
What Does Living A Christian Life Means To You?
“A Christian sees all men as made in the image of God. All are sinners too, which means that the image is marred, but it is a divine image nonetheless, capable of redemption and therefore to be held in honor.” ~ Elisabeth Elliot
1 Thessalonians 4:11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you.
Some Of The Basics On Living A Christian Life
Because of the sacrifice, Jesus made for us, and our proclamation that He is our Lord and Savior, we have now entered into a new life for those of us who believe. Below is a list of things that are new that we ought to embrace when one becomes a Christian.
(This is not a complete list, but rather a guideline to help you follow, for a close daily walk with the Lord each day)
- Read the Bible each morning A good place to start is in the book of Proverbs. Do not worry about how much you read, but rather what you can get from your reading.
- Pray each day Have your time talking and listening to what you need to share with God and what God wants you to know.
- Trust in God Your thoughts and feelings can be deceiving, yet God’s word is the truth that you can bank on.
- Fellowship at church We need fellowship with other believers to strengthen and encourage one another.
- When you fail Because you fail from time to time, ask God to forgive you and strengthen you to get right back up and not allow it to discourage you because God loves you.
- Help Others Take time in prayer to figure out who God wants you to help and then be of help to whoever it is. Assist other believers and non-believers God puts in your path.
- Overcome your fears We all have our set of fears and concerns, yet God tells us not to fear because He is with us and will not forsake us. Renounce worry, anxiety, doubt.
- Do not worry about the future God’s grace will be enough to meet the challenges that each new day brings.
- Learn how to overcome temptation Either flee the devil or resist the devil with help from the Lord. Ask someone you trust to keep you accountable and give you support.
- Share the good news about Jesus Encourage other by sharing how God has worked in your life. The Bible encourages us always to be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. I Peter 3:15.

Does Living A Christian Life Require Church Attendance?
The church isn’t a building that Christians go to on Sundays! Well, then, what is the church? The church is made up of all those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, and who have a personal relationship with Him. And people who have this faith can find love, community, and encouragement to live out their God-given purpose when they meet in a local church.
That’s why it’s important to attend a local church! It’s where believers can love each other, hear biblical teaching, worship God, encourage one another, and build each other up in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus. Yes, a person can pray to Go in his or her home, car, or anywhere, but we need regular contact with other Christians to deal with all that tempts or overwhelms us. Just like working out in the gym with a partner encourages you and gives you some accountability, attending church strengthens your faith and helps to develop your relationship with Jesus.
Another way to think about this question: A hospital is for those who are sick and ill, and a church is for sinners. Both places are meant to heal, one physically, one spiritually. In a hospital, people need healing from their physical illness. In every church, people need healing from their sin sickness. Jesus is the Great Physician, who died to heal the sin in our lives.

“I am reminded of that irregular preacher at home who was accused of wandering from his subject. He replied that, whether he stuck to his subject or not, he thanked God that he stuck to his object, which was to bring men to Christ. I hope I shall never lose sight of that.” ~ Geraldine Taylor
