Understanding Your Own Faith As A Christian

When you make a choice to follow Jesus, your outlook on life changes. Once you begin to see things in His light, you notice battles that had previously been invisible to you. These things can make it difficult to understand and keep faith.

Since we live in a fallen world, this is nothing new. We are called to build the kingdom of God on earth; it will not happen immediately. When we become followers of Christ, we take up the commission to win more hearts to the Lord.

How can we win new souls to Christ when our own faith begins to waver? If you struggle to understand your faith in difficult times, here are some things to remember:

1- We Must Be Examples

Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). Every new believer is commanded to be a light that will guide others to God.

We might, at times, make choices for the sake of this mission that do not make sense. When we cannot see that our actions are making a difference, we question them. Faith tells us that what we do might not take effect in our lifetime, but it plants a seed that God can use when He sees fit.

2- God Is Always Here

Every Christian experiences a season in which it's difficult to feel the presence of God. Many fall away from their faith during these times of confusion. We should pray for the grace to persevere through spiritual dryness, knowing that God is present when we cannot feel Him.

Turn to the Bible if you are experiencing spiritual dryness. Set aside a peaceful time in which to read the Word and let it nurture you. Pick a devotional or ask a friend to pray with you until the fog clears.

3- Love Your Neighbor

A true follower of Christ serves others with joy. When we work with faith, we are moved to do favors for strangers we do not know and people we do not like.

We know that we are pleasing God by becoming more like Him. The greatest way to understand the Christian faith is to love others as He has loved us.
