Being a Christian is the easy part….

July 8, 2007

I have come to a conclusion, believing in Christ is the easy part, it is walking as a Christian in relationship to you that is tough. I don’t know who you are, what you believe, or where you are located, but the bible makes it clear that I have certain responsibilities in relationship to others.

Not only does scripture tell me what I should not do, it also tells me what I need to do in relationship with others, such as tell truth (You shall not lie.) and hold each other accountable (If someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Galatians 6:1-2.)

We read scripture and hear what we are supposed to do, but do we live it out? When was the last time someone around you sinned? What was your response? Are we sinning when we are not living by every truth we have learned from God’s word? If you know you are not to lie, lust, discourage, break unity, gently restore someone who is sinning, and do all for the glory of God what happens when we don’t live that out?
