Being A Christian Is Not Easy

Being a Christian is not easy. Here are some questions you might ask yourself, whenever youíre in doubt and life has you down.

Is your heart in the right place?

Are you looking for Jesusí face?

Do you yearn for his awesome embrace?

Are you going at the right spiritual pace?

Do you even feel like youíve gotten to first base?

Sometimes you might feel like just giving up. Is this ever the case?

Are you wandering alone in a daze?

Is following Jesus just a phase?

Is the world you live in, a confusing maze?

Search your heart and soul for these answers.

1. Is your heart in the right place?

Your heart is in the right place if you listen to it and know youíre being guided by Godís grace.


2. Are you looking for Jesusí face?

Looking for Jesusí face is important. In this world we need to see the Saviorís face, in our dreams, in our desires, in our focus on life. His face reminds us that He is in charge of all that happens. He is looking after us.


3. Do you yearn for his awesome embrace?

Yearning for Jesusí embrace gives you the desire to continue in your search until you find Him and your chosen way of life.


4. Are you going at the right spiritual pace?

You are going at the right spiritual pace if things seem to be happening for you. I donít mean material situations but if Godís love is growing in your heart and He is all you desire.


5. Do you even feel like youíve gotten to first base?

You may not feel like youíve gotten to first base. But remember life is not a baseball game and you canít always judge your own progress. First base is part of the way. Making a home run is dependent on God. You need His grace.


6. Sometimes you might feel like just giving up. Is this ever the case?

We all feel like giving up at sometime in our faith journey. Weíre only human.The point is not to give up. God gives us what we need to continue. Giving up shows that we donít have enough confidence in God. This should never be the case.


7. Are you wandering alone in a daze?

If you ever feel like youíre wondering around in a daze, then you need to stop and pray. Weíre in a daze sometimes when weíre confused. Praying to God and believing Heís going to help you, which He will, will stop this confusing state of mind.


8. Is following Jesus just a phase?

I hope not. Jesus should not be just a phase but who and what we base our lives on.


9. Is the world you live in, a confusing maze?

Of course the world is a confusing maze but it doesnít have to be. Believing in God and following Jesus can make our life completely clear.

These are just a few reminders of why weíre even here. We want to be Christians, first of all. Life can be very controversial yet God has a master plan. We need to keep our eyes on God.
