Six Steps

Are You Actively a Christian?
—Six Questions

Are you actively a Christian? If you cannot answer “yes” to the questions below, then you are not ACTIVELY a Christian. You need to correct this.

1 Prayer

Do you pray often and let no day go by without prayer?

Philippians 4:6, 1Thessalonians 5:17

2 Reading the Bible

Do you read the Scriptures daily and learn its teaching?

2Timothy 3:14-17, Psalm, 1:1-2

3 Fellowship in Assembly

Do you go to the assembly of Christians on the first day of the week, and try not to be an absentee?

Hebrews 10:25.

4 Moral Living

Do you lead a moral life and try to put to death the deeds of the flesh?

1Corinthians 6:15, Romans 8:13, Galatians 5:19-24.

5 Honesty toward All

Are you honest in all your dealings, never taking what does not rightly belong to you?

Ephesians 4:28.

6 Wholesome Speech

Is your speech clean and wholesome and do your words build up and strengthen those who hear them?

James 3:2-12, Colossians 4:6

After Baptism

When one becomes a Christian, that is not the end. It is only the beginning. The Christian life is a life of action in doing good.

The Christian life is a prayerful, studious, regular, committed, moral, honest, pure, and sober life. All the Christian says and does should reflect those qualities.

Many who become Christians then do little or nothing as Christians. They start their Christian walk by sitting down! They don't act any differently to the way they acted before becoming Christians.

Such people may even claim that since the grace of God alone has saved them, it is irrelevant what they do and what manner of life they lead.

Of course we rely entirely on the grace of God ! We derive all our goodness from Him. However our Lord clearly says, "Wake up, and strengthen what remains but is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God." (Revelation 3:2).
