To live a Christian life is to live a life of service to God and other people, through demonstrating love and kindness to everyone, even though they may not show it back. There are a number of things we can do on a daily basis to serve both God and other people, and we need to make sure we take as many opportunities as possible to live in a godly way.
Treat other people the way you want them to treat you
One fundamental aspect of Christianity is to treat others the way you’d like them to treat you. By being kind to people even when they’re unkind to you, you set a good example and become an effective representative of Christianity and God.
Help people in need
Matthew 25:34-40 sees Jesus telling us to help others by visiting the sick, providing food for the hungry, giving clothing to the needy and comforting people in prison. Once again, when people see you offering your help in the name of God, you’ll help to open up their hearts to Him in an effective way.
Don’t worry about things beyond your control
It’s important that you always aim to do your best in a situation to deal with life’s problems and are accountable for your own actions, but you shouldn’t worry about things beyond your control. Even those with the strongest faith sometimes struggle with this, but instead you should put your faith in Jesus that everything will work out in the way that it needs to.
Read the Bible
By reading the Bible for just 10-20 minutes a day, you’ll finish Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in about a month. By ensuring you know and understand the life and teachings of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Through prayer, you will reaffirm your faith and connect with God in a way to will give you the strength to live your life in a good, Christian way. Pray for others and ask the Holy Spirit to enter their souls, not only will it help them to find God, but it may help them to get through difficult times.
Forgive enemies and people who wrong you
It’s important to forgive your enemies and people who have wronged you, because when you forgive others, God forgives you in the same way. However, God will not forgive your sins if you do not forgive others.
Learn the Word of God
By learning the four Gospels, you’ll know and understand the Word of God. By learning this knowledge, you’ll have plenty of examples on how to live a good Christian life. When you encounter challenging situations where you’re not sure what to do, you can draw upon the Word of God to make the right decision.
Talk to other people about Jesus
By talking to friends, family and colleagues about how Jesus died for our sins, and that eternal life of heaven s given for all those who believe in Him, you’re doing God’s work and helping them to accept Jesus into their hearts. Keep an online blog, write letters, speak face-to-face or ask loved ones to attend church with you.
