What is one of the best elements about Christmas, aside from the obvious of Jesus’ birth? The presents? The tree? The food? Nope! For me, it’s the music!
I love all the Christmas music. …

Basic Christian Principles

Submitted by on March 8, 2012 – 8:00 amNo Comment

 Written by Lisa aka Trophy of Grace

And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6-7)

 

Now that you’re saved, here are some basic Christian principles to help you in your walk with Christ. Along with the principles are articles the women of WeUsed2bu have writtten to expand on the principles. We pray that you are encouraged in your spiritual growth.

 

  •  Read the Bible daily

 

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

The Bible was inspired by God to help us with our everyday lives. It is God’s Word, giving us direction, comfort, hope, faith, and inspiration.

 

Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

 

If you want your faith to grow, being rooted in God’s Word will help you apply it to your life. It will feed your soul, renew your mind and help make  your thoughts and attitudes more like Christ. It provides truths. It reveals God’s character. It shows us examples of people throughout history who have messed up but who still loved God and who are still loved by God.

 

The Bible helps us live victorious Christian lives. (Romans 12:1-2). A few synonyms for “victorious” are: successful, fortunate, winning, triumphant, outstanding, unbeaten, undefeated, rewarding, strong, notable, happy. Who wouldn’t want to have a life like that?

 

As you read the Bible, stop and think about the scripture.

 

What does it say?

What does it say to me?

How can I apply it today?

Here are two articles that will help you better understand reading God’s Word:

Studying God’s Word & Reading Scripture

 

 

  • Prayer

 

Never Stop Praying. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

 

Prayer is simply talking to God. He wants to hear what’s on our hearts, even though He already knows. He wants to hear our voice and He wants to answer us back, through His Word, through another person, a song, a still, small voice inside of us; however He chooses.

 

Prayer is vital to our spiritual growth and to having a relationship with God. Just like in every relationship, you can’t become closer; can’t get to know each other better or love each other more without communication. Prayer is communication between you and God.

  • Go to church

 

And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. (Hebrews 10:25)

 

Church is a good place to make friends and meet other Christians. We need to be around other believers who will help encourage us, and who will pray with us and for us. The church you choose should teach the Bible, not just nice “ideas” and “feel-good messages.” The people who attend the church should be eager to hear and apply the Bible to their lives (Acts 9:31, 11:4).

 

Being in a church will provide you with ways to worship God—through music, prayer, drama and testimony of other believers. Godly sermons will help you understand scripture and show you ways to apply it in your life.

 

You should see the righteous “fruits” of salvation and obedience in the church’s leadership and its members (Galatians 5:22-23). In other words, the leaders and members should clearly love Jesus and be trying to live lives according to his example.

 

 

  • Get involved in an accountability group and/or home Bible study

 

Flee also youthful lusts, but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22)

 

Another important way to strengthen your walk with Jesus is to join a home bible study or accountability group. These are often available through your church—as part of the women’s, youth or young adult ministry. Or you could form one yourself, bringing together other Christians who want to grow in their faith.

 

Being in a small group gives you the opportunity to dig deeper into the teachings of scripture, plus you will get to hear from others how God used His Word to minister to them. Small groups and accountability groups put you in contact with believers who have a passion for God’s truth and power at work in their lives. (Acts 17:11)

 

Being in a small group is also a way to develop friendships with people who will commit to helping you bear the burdens of life by praying for you and being available for you to talk to them when you have a need. (James 4:17) They are sometimes called “life groups,” indicating the importance of “doing life” with other believers.

 

 

  • Be baptized

 

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4)

 

Baptism symbolizes Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection by the power of God. It is not the act of being submerged or sprinkled with water that is important. What is important is that when we are baptized, we are making a public proclamation. We are saying that we understand what Jesus did for us and have accepted His gift of salvation. (1 Peter 3:1) Baptism affirms our personal awareness that we are, by His life and Spirit, a new person in Him.

 

Baptism is not necessary for salvation. But baptism is an act of love and obedience. Clearly, Jesus, as God, did not need to be baptized for salvation. But, scripture tells us that Jesus went to John the Baptist and was baptized. Jesus was obedient to his Father God. Then,

 

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17)

 

If—as Christians—we try to live a life like Christ, then clearly one of the things we should do is be baptized.

 

 

  • Learn to have a giving heart

 

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. (II Cor. 9:8)

 

God has blessed us so that we can be a blessings to others. We should be willing to give of our time and resources to help others in need and to spread the Gospel. As a result of what you do for others, God will receive glory. Additionally, your generosity shows obedience to and love for Christ. (2 Corinthians 9:13)

 

 

  • Evangelism

 

syf1And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15)

 

Now that we have God’s Spirit living in us, He has given us the power to be His witnesses, telling people about Him everywhere. (Acts 1:8)

 

We were once destined to hell and eternal separation from God. We should therefore have a longing inside to tell others the Good News of Christ and the freedom we have in Him. The love of God in us will prompt us to want to seek and save the lost—people who do not know Jesus.
