Become a Better Christian

by Jonathan R Baldock

There are a myriad of ways one can become a better Christian. Outlined below is a list of the ways to attain said status.

Trust in the Lord

Read the Bible day and night, according to Joshua 1:8.

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth: meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Understand that there is no such thing as a 'utopian society' on this earth, as it is a fallen world. Thus, as a Christian, we are soldiers for God and should preach the word to those who have fallen behind.

Do not be a sanctimonious Christian.

We are all human. We all sin. We are far from flawless. If you become a sanctimonious Christian, there is a possibility that you will turn people away from God rather than to him.

Have faith albeit not religion.

Religion is man made. It is a tool employed by humans to turn something intangible into something tangible. Faith is believing in the Lord and Jesus, not following onerous guidelines on how to live one’s life. If you abide by the 10 commandments, and believe in Jesus, you will be much closer to the Lord and will attain a heightened sense of peace.

Help the poor.

I once heard a 'so called' religious individual enunciate that the poor deserve to be poor. Jesus helped the poor, the needy, the weak, the outcasts and the down-trodden. Volunteer at a homeless shelter or give money to the Salvation Army. Remember, it is harder for a rich man to get into heaven than it is for a camel to get through the eye of a needle.

Wear a cross and let people know that you are a believer in the Lord.

Always remember, that the Lord is with you and guiding you and even in your darkest hours, he is carrying you through. This world is but a transitional period where we demonstrate our true character. Do not care what tomorrow brings. Care only about today and continuing on the being a solider for the Lord.
