Welcome to Part 2 of the series—Things believers should do continually based on Scripture. 

If you have yet to read Part 1, we advise you to do so. Please find it in our blog section under the resources tab. 

Let’s dive in and discuss the remaining three points. 

 

#1. Share Your Faith 

The greatest thing to ever happen on earth is the coming of Jesus Christ, His dying on the cross, and resurrection. The wrath against humanity was taken out on Christ so that we now have access to God, our creator when we believe. 

Knowing God and believing in Him through Jesus for us should motivate us to share our belief and faith with those who have yet to know and believe in Him—and do it proudly. 

As believers, we need to reach a point where we can have conversations about our faith and share with friends, if not strangers. 

Believers should always be ready to give answers to any man who wants a reason for the belief and hope that we have within us. 

Why? Because Jesus died and rose again. You have come to know Him. You love God and have the Holy Spirit of God dwelling within you. 

  • Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19) 
  • But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8) 
  • But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15) 
     

#2. Practice Kindness and Patience 

Kindness refers to the intentional and sincere use of your time, giftings, and resources to improve other people’s lives through genuine acts of compassion, generosity, and service.

Although we live busy lives and have our own issues to deal with, many people around us have pressing needs. While it is unreasonable to spend all your day helping others, we all can choose to help others by being kind to someone each day.

  • Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience (Colossians 3:12)
  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)

Start by focusing on the people around you. Be alert and sensitive to their ongoing issues and show them kindness.

Most times, an act of kindness from you could be everything it takes to get someone moving forward. Practicing kindness also opens opportunities for direct witnessing encounters where we can share our faith in Jesus.

#6. Always Be Thankful 

The Word of God urges us to give thanks to God continuously.

  • Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever (1 Chronicles 16:34)
  • Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18) 
  •  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts since, as members of one body, you were called to peace. And be thankful. (Colossians 3:15)
  • And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:17) 

As Christians, we need to have thankful hearts no matter our circumstances. We can hurt and be in pain but still be grateful. Constantly, giving thanks reminds us of how much we have and opens opportunities for more to come.
