There is no easy way to be a christian. Christianity requires a lot of effort and praying on your knees and growing in your faith, scarfice and committment. The heart of the christian life is to live our life's Christ teaches us to live. Although it sounds simple and easy to say, it is harder every day to live a christian life. But we can if we stay in connection with God. Living a christian life can get terribly difficult at times because every day we may face tempatation but temptation is not a sin unless we fall into tempation. (1 Cornithians 10:13) When we feel that our temptation gets overbearing that is when we should throw our hands up and praise the Lord. Fall on our knees and pray and pray. We are not God! we don't have the power of Christ, we can't do the things Christ Jesus done! Still, Jesus himself said that we should be perfect, even as our Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)
You may ask yourself, How can Christ Jesus ask such a thing of us?
Not for one minute Christ thought we would be perfect as God is. God know's we are imperfect and sinful. He knew just how much God loves us also, unconditionally love and wants us to grow and to be happy. With his help we can be able to find joy and grow maturity, to assist us, for God gave us a guide book and instruction book to follow and a book to help us to grow in our faith and our walk in Christ. The Ten Commandments! He gave us the Holy Scriptures, if we dedicated ourself faithfully reading the scriptures, the bible regularly, and read it prayerfully, God will help us to understand his word so through understanding we will be able to live more perfectly, the way God intends us to live. Today is the beginning of a New year, 2012, a new start to make amends in our lives and to grow closer to God through studying his scriptures, praying and reading his word, meditating on the scriptures and applying them to our every day in our lives My new year prayer, we pray that God will help us and all true claim christians to know God more, and through knowing us all, help us to be like Him, Help us to be faithful and loving follower, and always be with us all to guide us through this new year to start our new life out fresh to start over to try to live our life's right through every day throughout this New Year.
