How to live a good christian life : live a simple christian life :

To lead a Christian life is not an easy task. You have to fight Satan as you go through life. There are ways to overcome his attacks by getting closer to God.

Colossians 3:5-10

“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, as impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices.”

If you are to lead a true Christian life you must put to death your previous misdeeds. You need to bury them all. This includes mainly sexual immorality, which is rampant today.

Men have become lovers of men, women have become lovers of women. This is not why God created Eve out of Adam’s rib. He wanted to create a companion for Adam and start the human race.

There are all sorts of evil desires which is prevalent today. And because of these evil ways the wrath of god is coming. And before long it could end up in disaster as happened in Sodom and Gomorrah.

Today, we need Christian leaders to run our country, not nominal Christian leaders. Unfortunately, I see none in the horizon. We need to cultivate more and more true leaders who value the art of decent living.

Every religion on earth teach good morals. There are no bad religions. Unfortunately those rules and commandments are not followed to the letter.

Basically, you must get rid of anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. And do not lie. That was the old way before you accepted Jesus as your and savior. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

This is a very important point that Jesus stressed. Many today boast, including some pastors, that they will meet us in heaven. This scripture is a warning to all these people. As Jesus stresses, only who did the will of the father in heaven will enter the kingdom of heaven.

You must follow all the commandments as outlined in the bible to enter heaven. I strongly believe that what the Lord meant here is that though you may boast of your “works” you failed in your christian life.

It is not by works but by the grace of God only you can enter heaven. You can not earn it. To ensure that you will go to heaven, you must first accept that Jesus is the son of God, and repent, ask for forgiveness and ask him to come to your heart.

In heaven Jesus will have open a book that will have names of all who will enter the kingdom of heaven. And if your name is not found in it, it will be tragic.

Book of Life:

Revelation 3:5

The one who conquers will thus be dressed in white garments, and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life, but I will acknowledge his name before my Father and before his angels.

The Book of Life contains the names of those who have been spiritually converted and who have dedicated their lives to the service of God. Like other servants of God, Moses understood that his name was already written in the Book of Life.

How nice it would be to hear your name read out loud by Jesus in front of the Father, in heaven. It is not easy to have your name written on this book as I said before.

Ephesians 4:17-32

“you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.”

***Here it is stresses, that you must not live the way, you have been living, which was not in accordance of laws in the bible. You must change your lifestyle of lies, fraud and use of course language. And of sexual impurity, greed.

20 That, however, is not the way of life you learned 21 when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. 25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. ”

**** Put off your old self, and do not let devil control your body, life. We are members of one body, and Christ is at the center of it. All must work and share with others. Most importantly, do not grieve the Holy Spirit. Get rid of anger, all kinds of bitterness, rage, anger. And be compassionate to one another.

Most of all forgive each other, as Jesus said forgive others not seven times but seventy seven times. Forgive as Christ forgave you.

Act like a true Christian at work. Be an example to others, especially at work. Help the new trainee. Go out of your way to help others. Always look for opportunity help others, physically or financially.

GB-God Beloved :

I remember there was a pastor, who told us that he had in the car number plate the sign, GB, when someone inquired what it stands for, he said it is for “God Beloved”. Actually it stands for “Great Britain” And this pastor would walk into his office with his head held high, thinking that he is one of “God Beloved”

This is the way we should think of our selves.As you know God is a loving God. And his eyes are on us twenty-four hours, seven days and three hundred and sixty-five days a year.

When you grow older, it is time for you to get closer to God, as you know the time has come for you to “hit the road” as most say. But if you have lived a true Christian life, as I mentioned above, there is no need to panic.

The reason is that you have live a righteous life and followed Christ to the letter. And for those who were converted, God will look at your life after being converted.

Even a murderer, can end up in heaven with Jesus :

Here, I like to stress, even a murderer, can go to heaven, if he repents at the last moment and accept Jesus as savior as done when at the crucifixion, the one on Jesus right, who was a murderer accepted Jesus and went to heaven.

Here, when he accepted Jesus as the lord and savior, Jesus said “You will be in paradise” Jesus meant that he will be in heaven with him.

So, I have news for all the sinners, those who are living a sinful life, whether you are a fornicator, lair, burglar and even a murderer waiting for the electric chair. If you accept Jesus as your lord and savior before your death, You will be in paradise, meaning in Heaven with Jesus

Conclusion :

You must put to death all your earthly activity, sexual immorality, as impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. You must bury the life you lived and follow Christian commandments as outlined in the bible. You must increase your involvement in the church activities.

Christianity give hopes even to a murderer, as it is based on forgiveness. If you truly repent and ask Jesus to come into your heart, he will even if you are a murderer. There is hop for everyone.
