Benefits of Leading a Christian Life
If you have been walking with God for some time, you may find yourself sometimes asking if there are benefits of doing so. A lot of people think that the only benefit of being a Christian and leading a Christian lifestyle is that you get to go to heaven, but there are a lot more benefits. This, however, does not mean that people only follow God because of the many benefits of doing so. Deciding to lead a Christian lifestyle is something you should do with your heart, not expecting anything in return. However, it is normal for one to be curious. Before we delve into the benefits of leading a Christian life, we need to understand what being a Christian is. A Christmas, in simple terms, is a follower of Christ. There are many things that distinguish a Christmas from non-followers of Christ. Some of the main characteristics of a Christian are loving without hypocrisy, hating evil and all that is evil, being patient, loving all that is good, respect and appreciating each other, being humble, acknowledging that others may know better than you, helping the helpless in whichever way, and above all, loving all your neighbors without favoritism. These are just a few of the characteristics possessed by those who lead a Christian life. Now, we will look at the benefits of doing so.
Imagine living in a society where everybody led a Christian life and possessed these characteristics. This would be an ideal world because it would be a world built and sustained by love. There would be no hunger, hate crimes, or any other crime that may be committed by a person because of greed. Leading a Christian life means loving your neighbors as much as you love yourself. This would mean giving food to the hungry when you have a surplus, clothing the needy, and helping in any way you can. Above all, love means forgiveness. As such, you would not hear of revenge killings or other acts that may take away from the life of others as a means of payback. This would be the ideal world. However, the world is not ideal, and as such, the benefits are not to this extreme. There, however, are a lot of notable benefits of living a Christian life.
One of these benefits is that you would lead a stress-free life. The Bible teaches us that there is no need to worry because God has the wheel. Every single thing, no matter, how bad it is that happens does so for reason. When you leave all your troubles and worries to God, you get to live a happier and less stressful life. If you lead a Christian life, you are better able to deal with all tribulations that come your way. This is because God is your shield, and there is no better shield and guide than him. You can never go astray if you lead a Christian life. The beauty of being a Christian is being able to call unto Him at all times, and believing that He will make everything right. This gives you peace of mind, and peace is the most precious gift.
