6 Benefits of Maintaining Your Christian Faith

Millennial Magazine - christian faith

Being part of any faith, especially Christianity comes with its own set of challenges. There are so many things that you can’t do, certain things that you are obligated to do, and it requires you to work on yourself, which can be a mundane and difficult task. Moreover, it is a long journey. Changes don’t happen overnight and you need to have the faith to put in consistent effort to see visible changes in your life.

If you are a new convert you might be very passionate right now but maintaining that level of motivation can be hard. If you are one who is trying to get back on the path of faith you know how easy it is to lose hope and wander off. However, even with all these difficulties, here are 6 good reasons why maintaining your Christian faith is the best thing that you can do for yourself.

1. Christ

The biggest blessing of all is Christ himself. The fact that you have a personal connection with him and he is personally watching out for you at all times. Moreover, the fact that through Christ you have a personal relationship with God should be enough motivation to lift you out of any situation that you face in life. When you have a connection with the creator himself, there is nothing that can stop you from achieving your dreams.

2. Holy Spirit

Secondly, you have the Holy Spirit by your side for all things in life. Whether you need guidance about personal or professional life, the Holy Spirit is there to provide you with divine knowledge. This might be hard to believe when you are just starting out on the path but over time you will feel how God is trying to communicate with you and show you the right way.

3. Caring Community

Christianity is one of the biggest religions on Earth with well over 2 billion followers. If you are looking for like-minded people, you will easily find a fellow Christian. You will come across them in the most surprising of places. Today, we live in a very interconnected world where you can meet Christian singles through the internet that could become your soul mates. The internet is home to billions of daily users and there is no reason why you can’t meet the perfect person online. It might take time, but they are out there.

4. Discipline

Christianity gives you the answers to the big questions and also gives you a framework for life. In every stage of life, you have something to refer to. When finding the right partner through the best black dating sites you know who you are looking for and you know how to go about it in a way that will keep your faith intact. You hold yourself accountable and this is something that radiates positivity to all areas of your life. Many people are directionless because they have no discipline but as a believer, you have the guidance that they lack.

5. Knowing The Meaning Of Life

Life can be a wonderful experience but it only takes a moment for things to completely turn around and you are left there wondering why you even exist. Christianity not only gives you the answers to the big questions about our existence but also gives you the courage and the motivation to keep going when times are hard. You have a better understanding of the meaning of life and this gives you the ability to look at events in life in a different way. Things that would otherwise demotivate an atheist will only push you to work harder and stay true to your beliefs.

6. Heaven

God, being the forgiving and loving being that He is, has promised Heaven for all those that follow the right path and believe in the message that He has sent down to us. Those who don’t follow are going to suffer in Hell but those who do believe in God will enjoy an eternal life full of pleasure and happiness in Heaven. However, the price to Heaven is your faith, and while it is a heavy price to pay, the rewards are something that no mortal can even imagine. All your efforts are not in vain and God will reward you very soon.

To become a good Christian it is important that you follow all the external and physical practices but it is even more important that you internalize them and follow the faith from your heart. After all, God sees not like man, He judges on the basis of the Heart. And more importantly, God knows whatever goes on in the heart. You can deceive humans but at the end of the day your matter is with God and it is to your own benefit, to be honest with Him and yourself.
