Christian Life and Attitude

One of the most important gifts of all is life, and it was given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.  But sometimes we forget the generosity of a loving God.  After all, He didn’t have to create us in the first place. But He did, and wished to share His blessings by creating us in His own image so that He could shower us with His love. 

As you read this article, take a moment to answer the following question, “Is there a reason for me to be thankful today?” 

As Born Again believers, we're instructed to Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it. 

For the Scriptures say, If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil” (1Peter 3:10-12).

Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. 

Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life, and if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. 

Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ. 

Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong! Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but He was raised to life in the Spirit.

Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers accept his authority. (1Peter 3:8-22)

In conclusion, though Christians cannot always be exactly of the same mind, yet we should have compassion for one another, and love as brethren. 

If any man desires to live comfortably on this earth, or to possess eternal life in heaven, he must bridle his tongue from wicked, abusive, or deceitful words. He must forsake and keep far from evil actions, do all the good he can, and seek peace with all men. 

For God, all-wise and every where present, watches over the righteous, and takes care of them; God bless you.
