Christians must be disciplined not to drift into some unbiblical practices that have perpetrated our society. The scripture stated, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end” (Hebrews 3:13-14).
Christianity is a seasoned religion that is based on the lifestyle of Jesus Christ; believers must comply with its principle to appease God and obtain his benefits. Christians must understand that we are running a spiritual race (and not a worldly race); our beliefs and pious exercises will be rewarded in God’s kingdom. Therefore, we must run the spiritual race with care and with a complete devotion.
Every Christian must observe the teachings of Jesus Christ. We must practice them to the letter. Believers must not give in to any trial, temptation, or persecution that may come our way. We must be sensitive and be prayerful to overcome our challenges. Believers must rely on the power of God to have victory in every situation! In addition, we must yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit so that we can have the strength to meet God’s expectations and qualify for his benefits.
Dear God, please give me the ability to live up to your expectations. Help me to comply with the principles of the Bible so that I can prosper. Do not let me follow the multitude in their evil practices, but keep me inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit so that I can meet up with your standard and prosper. Please, keep me fit for your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
