How To Live Your Faith Each Day (Part 1)


The following are guidelines for living as redeemed people in a fallen world. We are to:

  • Give Ourselves To God As Living Sacrifices (Part 1);

  • Obey The Government (Part 2);

  • Love Our Neighbors (Part 3); And

  • Take Special Care Of Those Who Are Weak In The Faith (Part 4).


Romans 12:1-2 saysTherefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

In the above scripture verses, we are told that God wants us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices – daily laying aside our own desires to follow Him, putting all our energy and resources at His disposal and trusting Him to guide us. We should do this out of gratitude that our sins have been forgiven.

God has good, pleasing, and perfect plans for His children. He wants us to be transformed people with renewed minds, living to honor and obey Him. Because He wants only what is best for us, and because He gave His Son to make our new lives possible, we should joyfully give ourselves as living sacrifices for His service.

As Christians, we are called not to conform any longer to the patterns of this world, with its behaviors and customs that are usually selfish and often corrupt. We should wisely decide that much worldly behavior is off limits for us.

But, our refusal to conform to this world's values must go even deeper than the level of behavior and customs – it must be firmly planted in our minds - “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

However, remember this. It is possible to avoid most worldly behavior and customs and still be proud, covetous, selfish, stubborn, and arrogant.

It is only when the Holy Spirit renews, reeducates, and redirects our minds that are we truly transformed.

Proverbs 23:7 saysFor as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”

According to this scripture verse, your thoughts have a lot to do with your perspective and attitudes and you become what you think.


  • Have You Truly Offered Your Body To God As A Living Sacrifice?

  • Have You Asked The Holy Spirit To Renew, Reeducate, And Redirect Your Mind?

If Not, Do It Today And See A Change In Your Life!

How To Live Your Faith Each Day (Part 4)

The following are guidelines for living as redeemed people in a fallen world. We are to:

  • Give Ourselves To God As Living Sacrifices (Part 1);
  • Obey The Government (Part 2);
  • Love Our Neighbors (Part 3); And
  • Take Special Care Of Those Who Are Weak In The Faith (Part 4).


Romans 14:1 says “Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.”

Romans 14:13 saysTherefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.”

Romans 14:19 saysLet us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.”

Romans 15:1 says “We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.”

The above scriptures tell us that we are not to do anything in front of a brother or sister that they think is wrong but we think, according to the Bible, is not wrong.

Example # 1: You go out to dinner with brothers and sisters. You normally have a glass of wine with your meal and you believe, according to the Bible, there is nothing wrong with this. But, if it Is wrong in the eyes of the people you are with, then for their sake, you should abstain from having your glass of wine.

Example # 2: You like to listen to Jazz music. Your brother or sister doesn't like to listen to Jazz music because it brings back thoughts of their past life when they were doing something wrong while listening to Jazz music. If you know this, then you should abstain from listening to this music while you are with them.

We are not to quarrel about issues that are matters of opinion. Differences should not be feared or avoided, but accepted and handled with love.

If a brother of sister regards something as sinful, then for him or her, it is sinful. If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, drink or do and you do it in front of them anyway, you are not acting in love.

Everything we do affects others and we have to think of them constantly. God created us to be interdependent, not independent. We who are strong in our faith must, without pride or condescension, treat others with love, patience and self-restraint.

How To Live Your Faith Each Day (Part 3)

The following are guidelines for living as redeemed people in a fallen world. We are to:

  • Give Ourselves To God As Living Sacrifices (Part 1);
  • Obey The Government (Part 2);
  • Love Our Neighbors (Part 3); And
  • Take Special Care Of Those Who Are Weak In The Faith (Part 4).


In Matthew 22:39, Jesus said “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 5:43-45 says “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

In John 15:17, Jesus said This is my command: Love each other.”


Romans 12:9-21 says9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord. On the contrary: 'If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.' 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”


Luke 10:27-37 says27 He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

28 'You have answered correctly,' Jesus replied. 'Do this and you will live.' 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, 'And who is my neighbor?' 30 In reply Jesus said: 'A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.

31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 The next day he took out two Denari and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 'Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?' 37 The expert in the law replied, 'The one who had mercy on him.' Jesus told him, 'Go and do likewise.'”


Romans 13:8-14 says “8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, 'You shall not commit adultery,' 'You shall not murder,' 'You shall not steal,' 'You shall not covet,' and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. 11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.”


We are permanently in debt to Jesus Christ for the lavish love He has poured out on us. The only way we can even begin to repay this debt is by loving others in turn.

Because Christ's love will always be infinitely greater than ours, we will always have the obligation to love our neighbors.


Somehow, many of us have gotten the idea that self-love is wrong. But if this were the case, it would be pointless to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Even if you have low self-esteem, you probably don't willingly let yourself go hungry. You clothe yourself reasonably well. You make sure there's a roof over your head if you can. You try not to let yourself be cheated or injured. And you get angry if someone tries to ruin your marriage or relationships.

This is the kind of love we need to have for our neighbors. Do we see that others are fed, clothed, and housed as well as they can be? Are we concerned about issues of social justice?

Loving others as ourselves means to be actively working to see that their needs are met. People who truly love themselves and who focus on others rather than themselves rarely suffer from low self-esteem!

Finally, In John 13:34, Jesus said “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

How To Live Your Faith Each Day (Part 2).

The following are guidelines for living as redeemed people in a fallen world. We are to:

  • Give Ourselves To God As Living Sacrifices (Part 1);
  • Obey The Government (Part 2);
  • Love Our Neighbors (Part 3); And
  • Take Special Care Of Those Who Are Weak In The Faith (Part 4).


The Bible clearly states that we are to obey and live at peace with our Governing Authorities as long as they allow us to live by our religious convictions.

Romans 13:1-5 says “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.”

Are there times when we should not submit to the government? “YES!” We should never allow government to force us to disobey God.

Acts 5:27-29 says 27 The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. 28 “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.” 29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

Acts 5:40-42 saysHis speech persuaded them. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41 The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. 42 Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.”

The Apostles were warned repeatedly not to preach, but they continued in spite of the threats. And, they gladly took the flogging and thanked God for considering them worthy of suffering disgrace for lifting up the name of Jesus. We, too, should live as Christ has asked us to do, sharing our faith no matter what the cost.

If you are compelled to disobey the law of the land, you must be ready to accept the consequences.

Just like the apostles, you may be threatened, humiliated, slandered, beaten, thrown into jail, tortured, or even executed for your convictions.

Persecution, unlike anything we have ever known, is already here. If any of the above should happen to you, ask God to give you the strength to stand for Him, and He will do it!

Heaven Or Hell – Which One Will You Choose?


People live a very short time on earth (75 to 80 years) and everyone has a date with death. According to the Bible (God’s Infallible Word), when you die, your physical body will be returned to the earth but your soul (your mind, will and emotions) and your spirit (the heart of man) will live on eternally either in Heaven or in Hell.

If you want Heaven to be your eternal home, you must be Born Again (Saved). If you die before you are saved, Hell and eventually the Lake Of Fire will be your eternal home. If you wind up there, you cannot blame anyone else. The choice is yours and yours alone!


1. Being a Catholic cannot save you.

2. Being a Jew cannot save you.

3. Being a Muslim cannot save you.

4. Being a Buddhist cannot save you.

5. Being a Hindu cannot save you.

6. Being a Mormon cannot save you.

7. Being a Jehovah Witness cannot save you.

8. Being a Seventh Day Adventist cannot save you.

9. Being a member of any church or denomination cannot save you.

10. Being a member of any other religion or ideology not listed cannot save you.


The Bible states that there is only one way to be saved and that is through Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son. God loves you and doesn’t want anyone to spend eternity in Hell.

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 14:6 says “Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”


Jesus died a horrible cruel death on the cross to make a way for your sins to be forgiven. He voluntarily bore the stripes, shed His blood, sacrificed His life and took your punishment upon Himself. God required a perfect sacrifice for the remission of sins and Jesus was the only one who could do this. No other person could have qualified.

On the third day after His death, God raised Jesus from the dead and Jesus is alive today and serving as your personal advocate in Heaven. Jesus is God’s Free Gift of Salvation and this free gift is available to anyone who asks for it.


The following Bible verse explains how to do it.

Romans 10:9-11 says “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

You can only be saved by asking Jesus to forgive you of all your sins, accept Him as your Savior and make Him the Lord of your life.

Right this minute, Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. Why don't you let Him in. You will never regret it!



Dear God In Heaven…

I come to you in the name of Jesus. I confess that I am a sinner and I’m sorry for my sins, the way I’ve lived, and the things I’ve done.

Please forgive me and cleanse me with your precious blood from all unrighteousness.

With my mouth, I confess the Lord Jesus. In my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and He is alive.

This very moment, I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and I make Him the Lord of my life.

And according to Your Word, which cannot lie, I’m washed, I’m cleansed, I’m forgiven, and I am saved.

Praise God in Jesus name!

If you have just prayed this prayer and meant it from your heart, Praise the Lord!

You are a brand new person inside and you are not the same anymore. Your new life as a Child Of God has just begun! Congratulations and welcome to the Family of God!
