The first recorded followers of Christianity are thought to have emerged in the first century after Christ. It all began with Jesus, who was born in Bethlehem, which is located in Israel at that time. He was executed by crucifixion on a cross at Calvary, and three days after his death, he resurrected from the dead. There are more than two billion people throughout the world who call themselves Christians and believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. They adhere to his teachings.
In the following paragraphs, we will go over some of the responsibilities that Christians have as followers of Jesus Christ.
What Should You Do As A Christian?
Prayer is one of the most important aspects of being a Christian. Prayer is a two-way conversation with God, and it’s something that you should do every day. It’s important to talk to God, but it’s also important to listen to what He has to say back.
Prayer is like a lifeline for Christians because they know they can rely on Him even when things are difficult or confusing in their lives. That’s why many believers pray all the time—it gives them peace and reassurance from their heavenly Father who loves them so much.
2. Worship the Lord in Spirit and In Truth
Worshiping the Lord should be our first priority. We are to worship Him in spirit and truth. When we worship, we are not interested in what we do, but who we are. It is a matter of identity that God alone can define for us.
This goes beyond just singing or praising God with your lips; it extends to all aspects of your life as a believer—your thoughts, words and actions should be devoted to Him alone because He alone deserves every ounce of devotion from His people (Matthew 22:37-40).
3. Let God Be God and Do Not Try to Be God to Others
As Christians, we are called to let God be God. In other words, we need to stop trying to do everything ourselves and allow God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
Now I can already hear the “But…!” protestations from some of you: we are made in His image, right? So don’t we have a little bit of His power in us? Well yes, but remember that when He created Adam and Eve they were perfect beings who never sinned once. They had no flaws or weaknesses; they were flawless creations that never needed anything else because they were made perfect by the One Who knows what perfection really means (Genesis 1-3). We are not those kinds of creatures anymore—we live with all sorts of needs and weaknesses because our human bodies cannot function without food or water every day (Genesis 3).
4. Bring My Requests Before God
As a Christian, you should bring your requests before God. Ask him for what you want. God is your provider and he will provide all my needs according to his riches in glory. He is my source and I am blessed and highly favored of the Lord. The Lord is my shepherd and shall not be in want; I shall lack nothing (Psalm 23:1-5).
5. Read the Word of God Regularly
Read the Word of God regularly. Daily reading is essential in your life as a Christian because the Bible is our guide to living the life God has given us, and it also teaches us how to understand and interpret what we see in the world around us. So reading every day will keep your spiritual life strong, not only through its teachings but also by allowing you to be focused on God rather than being distracted by other things that may consume your time or attention.
6. Study the Word of God
The Bible tells us to study the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15). Why? To show ourselves approved unto God.
But what does that mean? We need to understand what it means to be “approved.” It doesn’t mean that we can just read a verse or two, and then say, “Oh yeah! I’m approved!” No way! It’s not enough just to meditate on the Word; we have to actually study it!
It’s like this: As you’re studying your math textbook in school, you might take a couple of minutes here and there during class time (and maybe even at lunch) to find some problems in your textbook that are similar—or identical—to ones assigned by your teacher. By doing so, over time you will gain confidence as well as knowledge about how different types of problems work. The more familiar you become with those types of problems, the easier they become for you solve when someone asks for help or gives them out during class time!
7. Meditate on The Word of God
The word meditate, which is used in the Bible and other religious literature, has been translated as “think” or “consider.” In other words, it means to think about something. The words of God are so valuable that they deserve more than just a quick glance or an occasional thought. They need to be considered in depth—not just once or twice but consistently over time.
Meditation also involves pondering, chewing on, and digesting what you have read (Psalm 19:7; 119:15). It entails allowing yourself time with God’s Word so that it saturates your mind (Psalm 19:14); permeates your whole being (Joshua 1:8; Philippians 4:8); soaks into every layer of your life (Matthew 13:23); and becomes part of who you are as a child of God (John 17:17).
8. Have a Teachable Spirit
As a Christian, you should have a teachable spirit. This means that you are humble and willing to learn. The more we learn, the more we realize how much we don’t know. In fact, it is an attitude of learning that is open to correction—instead of someone who just keeps their opinions and doesn’t want anyone else to do anything differently than what they’re doing or thinking for themselves.
This means that if someone has something different from what we’re believing or doing—whether it’s in our relationships with others or ourselves—we welcome them into our lives without any judgment because there may be something good about them or their ideas which could help us grow spiritually as well (1 Corinthians 14:39).
9. Don’t Trade Your Birthright for A Mess of Pottage
As Christians, we are heirs to the promise of everlasting life. This is a great inheritance, one that our ancestors looked forward to and one that we can enjoy for eternity. However, many people today are deceived into believing that their birthright—their inheritance—is not valuable or even worth having. They trade their birthright for earthly things like fame, fortune and pleasure.
The Bible warns us about this deception: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor” (Exodus 20:17). In other words, don’t be deceived into believing that the birthright is not valuable!
10. Seek First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.
This is the most important commandment. The word “first” here means ‘to seek out, desire, or pursue.’ This can be compared with Matthew 6:33 which says “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness (rightness), and all these things will be added to you.”
As Christians, our priority has to be seeking God’s kingdom and righteousness first before anything else. If we do this then everything else will fall into place because our hearts will be aligned with Christ’s heart who is always about seeking His Father’s honor above all else (John 5:30).
11. Store up Treasures in Heaven Rather than Earthly Possessions
As a Christian, you should store up treasures in heaven rather than on earth.
Material possessions are temporary and can be lost or stolen.
Worrying about material things is pointless because they are temporary and can be lost or stolen.
It’s better to focus on what really matters: your family and friends, health, faith in God, love for others and helping them when they need it most.
There Are Several Things You Should Do as A Christian.
There are several things you should do as a Christian. First, you should pray to God. Second, worship the Lord in spirit and truth. Third, let God be God and do not try to be God to others; you do not know what is best for them or how they should live their lives. Fourth, bring my requests before God and pray for me too when I am away from home at work or school during the day. Fifth, read the Word of God regularly so that you can know His will for your life and grow closer to Him each day through His power within us (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
we hope that you now have a better understanding of what being a Christian means, as well as some of the things that go along with it. If not, don’t worry about it! There’s always time to learn more. We encourage everyone who reads this article to keep learning and growing in their faith because there are so many opportunities out there for people like you!
