HOW TO BE A BETTER CHRISTIAN
As Christians there’s always need to improve ourselves and to develop our Christian life. Psalm 1:1
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”
this teaches us not to work in the council of the ungodly and we are suppose to guard our salvation with fear and trembling. The best way to improve our Christian life is to follow what I like to call the four great principle of Christianity which are:
HOW TO BE A BETTER CHRISTIAN
1. READ BIBLE DAILY
2. LEARN THE SECRET OF PRAYER
3. LOVE AND OBEY
4. GO TO CHURCH REGULARLY
Let’s talk in full
1 READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY:
As Christian in this world we are supposed to always live our life with our number one guide which is the Bible. The Bible is the Christian manual in this life as seen in Joshua 1:8
“This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate therein day and night,that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein, for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success”
You cannot meditate on the word of God without reading it first, the Bible says “it shall not depart from your mouth” which means you must verbally proclaim the world and then you should abide by everything you read. You must constantly read the word of God so as to grow spiritually and break grounds for God.
2 LEARN THE SECRET OF PRAYER:
To be better Christian we ought to learn the secret of prayers,we should understand that someone can pray amidst i.e wrongly(James 4:3).
“Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”
We need to continually seek him to ensure that our petitions and our motive are in line with his will then whether he say yes, no or wait our prayers will draw us closer to him
And in so doing we are living better life as christians.

3. LOVE AND OBEY:
as Christians loving is one mandate that we must fulfill because Christianity is based on the love if Christ for us and we should love all persons even our enemies just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. With love we can be able to easily obey the instructions of Christ for God is love as seen in 1 John 4:8 and to be better Christians we need to imitate the nature of God only then can we be able to obey God till maximum fully aware that 99% obedience is disobedience.we can understand fully what the Bible is saying about love in 1 Corinthians 13:1 to the end.
4. GO TO CHURCH REGULARLY;
In working towards been better Christians going to church regularly is very key. Hebrews 10:25 says “not forsaking the assembly of ourselves together as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” we should always avail ourselves concerning the things of God because fellowshipping with the brethren is a great way of grooming ourselves to be better, when in the presence of God we are able to build ourselves through the testimonies of others, we learn more through others experience and we correct ourselves in love.
