Christianity is something that is constantly evolving and changing and, as a result, you will find that different people look at it differently. How can you be sure that you’re following it in the way that is going to make a difference for your life? Are there things that you need to consider and how can you be certain that you’re doing what you can to follow Christ?
There are a lot of ideas as to what Christianity may be, but here are some of the basic tenants that you may want to consider and look at as a part of the whole thing.
Loving Other People
One of the biggest commandments in the Bible is that you should love other people as you love yourself. This means respecting people and giving them the love that they deserve just because they are human beings like you. Family members, friends, immigrants, people you dislike – you’re called to love all of them in the same fashion (while you may love some more than others, of course) and help them to see the love of God as well.
There are so many people out there that need our help. Whether that’s caring for the poor, working with kids who need help with studying, or anything in between, you will find that loving other people can help you to connect with God and connect with others in a way that you can’t work it out otherwise. Helping others is what Jesus did and is what people are called to do.
Moving Forward With Society
Adapting with the world, being in the world and doing what we can to help those in it is a huge part of the Christian walk. Whether that’s changing with the times, keeping up with what is going on in the world or adapting with scientific developments, you’ll find that it’s much easier to live out your faith if you’re willing to adapt with that faith as the world around us and our understanding of it changes.
Working Toward a Better World
We are on this earth to help make it better. Whether you call that mending creation or bringing God’s Kingdom to earth, there are a lot of implications and ideas that come with the whole thing. Jesus followers are called to do everything that they can in order to make sure that this world is the bet that it can be, both now and for the future. There are so many ways that people can do this, and different Christians may interpret how to do it in different ways.
Taking the time to learn and see what is involved here can go a long way and ensure that you’ve got everything in order and can work out what there is to be done. You have a lot that you can do and, as you move forward, you will find that Christianity can be a big part of your life and help you to live the best life that you can.
