How to Maintain a Christian Lifestyle
Being a Christ-follower means you live your life through the lens of God’s Word. It is your instruction manual for how to live, how to forgive, how to love, how to do business, and more. Living the Christian lifestyle is not easy. Following these seven tips will help you maintain a Christian lifestyle.
Be confident in your beliefs
It’s a big deal to trust God with your life. When you do, it can be hard not to feel judged by others who don’t follow the same faith. But remember: even though you might be in some ways different than the majority of people around you, God loves and accepts you just as much as they do. Your beliefs are not out of the ordinary; they were chosen for a reason! So if someone questions or criticizes your faith, know that their opinion is their own—and nothing more than an opinion.

Never compare yourself to others.
As a Christian, it’s important to remember that you can never be responsible for other people’s actions or the consequences they may suffer. You can only control what you do, how you respond to others, and your reactions.
When comparing yourself with other people, remember these important points:
- You have no idea what their motivations are for doing what they do or saying the things they say.
- Even if someone does something wrong as an act of malice toward you personally and intentionally, there’s no way for you to determine whether this is true without knowing all the details behind their actions.
Be content with life.
The Bible says, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”
The simple truth is that everyone has different situations in life; some have less than others but still manage to find happiness; some have more but don’t seem happier than those who live paycheck-to-paycheck without any luxuries! It all boils down to one thing: mindset! You needn’t compare yourself with others because nobody has the same experience as anyone else—so why bother comparing ourselves?
The Bible is your instruction manual.
The Bible is the word of God, and it is the only source of truth, salvation, knowledge, wisdom, and comfort. The Bible says that “all scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16). The word “inspiration” means that it was breathed out by God Himself (2 Timothy 3:16).
The Bible is important to us Christians because it tells us about Jesus Christ and His salvation plan for mankind. The Bible also teaches us how to live in a way that will please God and how to get eternal life after death if we do what He asks us to do through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 14:6; 1 John 5:11-13).
Listen to God’s voice.
You may not always feel like you hear God’s voice, but He speaks to you daily. How do you know? Well, here are some ideas:
- Listen for His voice in the Bible.
- Listen for His voice through prayer.
Know that salvation is a gift from Jesus Christ
You’re a Christian, but how do you know that? It’s not because of anything you’ve done or will do. Rather, it’s because God has chosen to grant his grace to us through faith in Jesus Christ.
The Bible says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works” (Ephesians 2:8–9). Grace means unmerited favor from God—it’s free! And what does this mean for your life? That salvation is also free! Your sins were paid for on the cross when Jesus died for them (Romans 5:8). When we receive salvation through faith in Him, He gives us eternal life (John 3:16).
Salvation is truly a gift! It is amazing that we don’t have to earn salvation or deserve it—all we need is faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on our behalf.
Acknowledge you are a sinner in need of redemption
As a Christian, you must recognize that you are a sinner who needs redemption. You must acknowledge this fact and accept it before God if you want Him to save your soul. If you don’t realize just how sinful and evil you truly are, God’s grace can’t work on your behalf.
Now that you’ve learned more about maintaining a Christian lifestyle, you can be more confident in your faith. You can rest assured that there are people out there who care about what they believe and want to help others believe too. Don’t forget that you should never feel alone when it comes to living in the world because we all need reminders from time to time to maintain our faith. Not everyone will agree with this way of life, but don’t let haters get you down because God loves them just as much as he does us!
