IDEALS OF CHRISTIAN LIVING
The way to cling tightly to your faith in Christ is done in 4 ways of which one cannot be
separated from the others.
1. Commune with Him. In other words, read the Word of God, the Bible; understanding
the principles set forth and following them.
2. Quietness before Him. Prayer; be prayerful ALWAYS. Effective prayer is linked to
3. Trust in Him. This is faith. The stronger our faith, the more patience we will have to let
God work His miracles. It is best said in Romans 8:28 -- “And we know all things work
together for good to them that love God, to them that are called unto His purpose”.
4. Expect from Him. Matthew 6:33 -- “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His
righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you”. In other words, God knows
your needs and will fill your needs as necessary. One important point to make is to leave
the when and how to Him. This strengthens our faith.
Remove the word “impossible” from your vocabulary. Simply stated, all things are
possible through Christ who strengthens me.
God has a specific plan for all of us. Let us follow His plan and not our own. True
happiness, joy and inner peace will result.
The Lord did not promise our lives to be without trial and tribulations but gives us a hand
so we may find calm amidst the storm.
If this way is followed, you will find that the temptation to sin can be easily overcome.
