For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
First things first.
If you’re reading this, congratulations are in order for you. The reason is simple: you are a blessed possessor of the greatest miracle any human being can ever have—salvation through Christ. You are a member of the Highest Royalty, and are now on a special mission for the King of kings.
You also live in a world ruled by a Darkness that would do anything to ensure you don’t succeed.
This is why the Ultimate Christian Survival Checklist is also in order. Here we go:
1. Love Like Jesus
God demands from us a pure and unselfish love towards others, regardless of background or circumstance. The purpose is to draw them to His saving grace.
2. Practice His Word
Study, believe and live It out. Obey Him at all times. It remains our victory road map.
3. Trust in God
Put everything aside. Depend upon His faithfulness to all His promises. Cultivate patience. God never disappoints.
4. Preach the Gospel
Remember where He saved you from. Billions are stuck there and in worse places. They desperately need the Savior. Never be silent.
5. Pray Non-Stop
This powerful weapon turns God’s promises into realities. Sustain the ability to seek His Face unceasingly.
6. Keep Singing Praises
Especially in trying times. Remember His goodness and worship. It’s a strategy that both glorifies and provokes Him to bless you more.
7. Succeed for Him
Expend passion on that calling He has given you. When excellence announces you, you’ll point the stunned world straight to Him. Plus, you’ll live in abundance and bless others.
If you’re unable to check these off all at once, no worries. God has promised to help all the way. Only be willing to implement these, and He will work out the rest. You cannot fail.
