The Walk of a Christian
The Bible tells us, as Christians, not to forsake assembling together. Yet going to Church doesn’t make us Christians. It is what we do outside of the sanctuary, in our everyday lives, that matters. It is our sense of involvement and commitment to our families, community, and church family.
The family at home is the first and foremost ministry of a Christian. A Christian maintains his or her obligations to the family, such as fidelity, provision, protection, support, and exemplifying for the children in order to raise them properly. The Bible says to raise up a child in the way that he should go; and when he gets older, he will not depart from it. Husbands should love their wives as Christ loved the Church. Wives should respect their husbands and use wisdom to run their households.
A Christian’s involvement in the community reflects who he or she is. This is usually done by being a member of a Church ministry, such as outreach. We are but mere servants. It is our duty to help and meet the needs of our community. In doing so, we can bring more souls to Christ. The angels in heaven rejoice every time someone accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
We will be known by the love we show toward one another, such as edifying one another in the Church. It is important to get involved in the Church, rather than just taking up space in a pew. This is important for self-edification. It is important to practice what is learned, so that it is seared onto the heart.
We are in the world, but not of the world. We must be shining examples in this dark, dying world of ours. So, let your light shine.
