a. Attend church regularly. The visible church is Christ’s organization upon earth. Christians need one another, we need to gather together to worship God, and nothing can take the place of church attendance.
b. Be a witnessing Christian. We witness in two ways: by life and by word – and the two, where possible, should go hand in hand.
c. Let love be the ruling principle of your life. Jesus said to those who followed Him, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). The greatest demonstration of the fact that we are Christians is that we love one another.
d. Be an obedient Christian. Let Christ have first place in all the choices of your life.
e. Learn how to meet temptation. Temptation is not sin. It is yielding that is sin. Let Christ through the Holy Spirit do the fighting for you.
f. Be a wholesome Christian. Our lives and appearance should commend the Gospel and make it attractive to others.
g. Live above your circumstances. Don’t let your circumstances get you down. Learn to live graciously within them, realizing the Lord Himself is with you.
