Christianity: A Way of Life

Is it acceptable to believe we are free to worship God as we wish, to refashion God in our own image? Or has God revealed an approach to life that He expects us to follow? Does it make any difference in the relationship we are supposed to have with Him? In this lesson we examine the answers to these questions and more from the Scriptures.

Introduction

Is it acceptable to believe we are free to worship God as we wish, to refashion God in our own image? Or has God revealed an approach to life that He expects us to follow? Does it make any difference in the relationship we are supposed to have with Him? In this lesson we examine the answers to these questions and more from the Scriptures.

The Godly Way of Life

The way leading to eternal life is the way of living within the boundaries defined in God's law. It is not the broad and popular way that approves of any behavioral preference and practice.

The Foundation

The key to living a way of life different from the ways of the world is to allow God's Spirit to work in us so we think like Jesus Christ.

Practicing Love, Honor and Respect

Love sums up God's character, His motivation, how He lives and how He deals with us. He wants us to show love in all our dealings with others.

Building Habits of Prayer and Bible Study

Prayer and Bible study is essential to a good relationship with God.

Observing God's Sabbath

If we love God and desire a close relationship with Him, we need to spend time honoring Him and drawing close to Him by observing the Sabbath.

Faith and Fidelity

Trust and fidelity-faith in God and faithfulness to His Word-are essential aspects of the way of life of the Scriptures.

Being a Good Neighbor to Others

One of Christ's most famous parables is that of the Good Samaritan.

Accepting Personal Responsibility

We need to guard against returning to the evil practices He condemns, to the sins Christ's sacrifice has covered.

Living As Lights in the World

God expects us to be examples to the people of the world.
