4. Run Away From Sin
Jesus died on the cross for our sins. This doesn’t mean we can sin because we acknowledge Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so we won’t have to sacrifice animals all the time for our sins. Instead of using the blood of sacrificial animals, we use the blood of Jesus to cleanse our sins along with water and the Holy Spirit when we are baptized.
5. Love & Respect Everybody
Treat everyone with high regard: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king. 1 Peter 2:17. You should not be quick to be prejudice or rude to anyone. God loves everyone and he expects you to love everyone as well. You can’t be a Christian but also be a racist, homophobic, ageist, sexist, etc. Having hatred for people and being a Christian is an oxymoron. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. Matthew 5:46. If you think you are facing these problem, pray to God to cast that spirit of prejudice out of you.
6. Learn to forgive at all times
You can’t expect God to forgive you when you don’t. Learn to forgive even if the person tried to kill you because remember we’re not battling with flesh and blood but spirits (Ephesians 6:12).
7. Be a charitable person
Every time you give to anybody in need, God will always bless you. God especially loves it when you give to strangers such as homeless or orphans. However beware of making it a big deal out of it since you need to do it from your heart. “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. Matthew 6:1
