What is Christianity?
Question: “What is Christianity and what does God expect from Christians?”
There are two parts to Christianity. The first is the journey to becoming a Christian and the second is living the Christian life.
We are all sinners, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Sin separates us from our sinless Father. Because of God’s great love for us, He provided a bridge over the separation so that man could come to Him. He provided a way that we may be cleansed and forgiven of our sins. He sent His Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for our sins on the cross of Calvary.
A person becomes a Christian by placing their trust in Jesus, confessing their sins, asking Jesus into their heart to cleanse them of their sins, and accepting Him as their Lord and Savior. See Salvation, finding it.
And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone which sees the Son and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day (John 6:40).
Living a Christina life is both simple and complex. The simple answer is to love God, trust God with your life, and to obey God. While these three points would appear simple on the surface, they actually take a continuous effort to grow so that we may refine our relationship with God. We grow this closer relationship with God by daily spending time meditating on His Word, learning what God expects of us, and communicating with Him in conversation, prayers, and spending time just hanging out together.
As we grow in the Lord, more and more of His 3,000 Biblical promises will increasingly occur in our life through our prayers, believing that God’s Word is flawless, and that God will answer all of our prayers that are in His will and timing.
God wants and expects us to grow in our relationship with Him through His Word and time spent with Him. The more our relationship with God grows, the more knowledge and understanding we gain of God and His will for our lives.
A Christian’s life will have bumps, but we always have God with us as He states through His great love for us, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).
