We are in a world whereby every person has the freedom to choose the kind of life one wants to live. The problem with this is that people will tend to choose ways that they see as simple and bringing more pleasure into their lives without considering the consequences that follow. It is however good to have that freedom since you will choose the way you want to live freely without being pressurized by anyone and this way you will do things without being forced. If you however have chosen to prioritize God above all other things, you should understand that you should do it without being forced and you hold to the right things as a Christian.
One thing that you need to know is the virtue of love. The holy book says that love is the greatest thing that any person can have. It goes ahead to say that love doesn’t envy and it endures all. This means that as a Christian, you should have that endurance. You can’t expect everyone to live the way you want them to live and even though they are living a different life you must have the aspect of love in you such that you will love them the way they are. When you have love in you, you will do the right things to someone because you will do to him or her what you would wish them to do to you. You need to understand that God loves you more than anything else and that is the reason He expects you to love other people as well.
You need to have faith. Faith is having trust and hope for the things that you do not see. Every Christian life by faith. It’s by faith that you pray for something yet you can’t see it. It’s by faith that you can pray for someone and expect God to do that thing that you asked Him to do to your friend. You should therefore make sure that you have faith that doesn’t die. If you lack faith it means that even the things you are praying for can’t be fulfilled because you can’t trust in God.
Focus on Christ. The moment you decided to get saved and stay at the mercy of Christ is the moment you should know that Christ is the center of everything, and he has powers over anything. There is no human being who can equal him so you shouldn’t compare him with anyone else. Not even your religious leaders can be equal to the god so you shouldn’t fear anyone more than you do fear god. Whatever you do under the sun you will need to fear he who has the power over everything and not fear human beings. You hence have to do what is right in His eyes.
Read the bible. Bible is the best book that every Christian should read. It is what gives us the energy to survive every trial and encourages us when we are weak as well as advising us.
