Living An Amazing Christian Life
As I was sitting here this evening feeling so blessed in a world that seems to have gone crazy, I decided to write down some of my thoughts to share with you. We don’t have to live in hurt, pain, and poverty all the time. God provides! The Christian life can and should be amazing!
My Christian Life Wasn’t So Amazing
In The Beginning
When I was a child my parents took me to church but I don’t remember much except if I asked Jesus into my heart I would get to go to heaven. If not I would burn in the lake of fire! Well, the choice was simple for me. I didn’t understand what the lake of fire really was but at nine years old I sure wasn’t going there if I could help it!
Most of what they taught in that particular church was the plan of salvation, which is the most important thing. However, they didn’t teach how being a Christian could be great while we are still living here on earth. It sounded like the good stuff only happened when you get to heaven. So not true! When I was a child I wanted to be good so bad I even thought of becoming a nun, but I was Baptist!
Seek And You Shall Find That Amazing Christian Life
God is so good! As my search for more of Him began as a young woman I was led to a neighbor who in turn invited me to a bible study and to her church. You can read my testimony for that story. For the first time in my life, I felt like there was hope! Finally, I was taught the bible and some fundamental truths about the promises of God.
Almighty God gave us so many provisions for living here on earth and our eternal life by sending His son Jesus. The problem lies in the fact that many Christians don’t know how special they are to the Father and how much He wants to provide for them. Maybe you don’t think you deserve His help. I know I felt that way for a long time, but Jesus sees us righteous after we become Christians and doesn’t even remember those bad things we did earlier in life.
Fear Can Hinder Your Christian Life
One of the most repeated commands in the bible is “fear not”. In fact, it’s in there (King James version) around 365 times. This means it’s very important! Fear is the main evil that keeps people from having that amazing Christian life. Even after we learn the promises of God the enemy of fear grips many of us. Trusting in the Lord is the only way to combat fear. Trust sounds easy, but it takes practice, prayer, and a great relationship with the Father.
Think about your very best friend or your spouse. You know them so very well and in most cases would trust them with your life. You have that trust because you spent time with them and got to know them. It’s the same with God. How can you trust Him if you don’t spend time with Him and truly get to know Him? Once you do, the trust will be there.
Trust and Faith Go Hand in Hand
Trust and faith go hand in hand. Once we get those two things into our spirits our Christian lives will take a huge turn for the better. If we had just the faith of a grain of a mustard seed we would never be sick, poor, or afraid! Those aren’t my words, they are in many places in the bible.
The more I personally get into to Word of God and build a more intimate relationship with Him, the easier these things are to understand and act upon. Faith also requires action and it’s important to act as if we already have what we have prayed for. The bible says that we are to walk by faith, not by what we see, hear, or feel. You’ve heard that old saying, “Let Go and Let God“, and that’s exactly what you need to do.
Tea Time With Me and God
Thanks for being with me and the Lord while I unwind from the day’s events and have my cup of hot tea. I know I may have rambled a bit but I felt that God wanted me to share these thoughts with you tonight as I sit here having my Earl Gray tea (my favorite). Get into the Word for yourself and see what good God wants to do for you RIGHT NOW! Soon you will be living an amazing Christian life every day of the year.
