In our today’s sermon, we are going to discuss how to maintain your Christian faith.
And without much ado, let’s move on to our discourse right away.
How to maintain your Christian faith.
To maintain your Christian faith, you must consider yourself an imperfect being and do your best to practice the word of God.
Never for once think you have yet attended righteousness as well as think your mind back to those days you were still living in sin.
Rather, look up to that eternal life that our Lord Jesus offers for all who are able to hold on, overcome all sin and temptations and die as a real Christian.
Let’s see what Saint Paul says to this effect in the scripture below.
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.Phillipians 3:17-21.
You must also be consistent in practicing the teachings of Christianity.
Maintaining your Christian faith also requires consistency in practicing the teachings of Christianity.
There is no time in our lives that we should claim we have attained perfection.
Sometimes our past seems to hunt us, seeking to rob us of the possibility of a brighter future.
Paul, the writer of the above scripture, as we know; was formally a persecutor of the Christian faith, but on his way to Damascus, he was converted.
Most times, it is certain that Paul was always hunted by his past, which made him feel unworthy to serve Christ.
But today, Paul has shown us the technique he used to escape this; which is forgetting the past and looking up to what the future holds.
Consequently, we should also adopt this concept into our Christian life if we want to succeed in serving Christ.
May God bless His word for us today in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
