7 Basic Habits Every Christian Needs to Develop

7 Basic Habits Every Christian Needs to Develop

    1. In order to grow we need to eat—Read the Bible

    I read these “7 basic habits every Christian needs to develop” yesterday & thought yes that’s good, but it wasn’t till I looked at all the scriptures today that it came alive to me. The ones that especially stood out (though all are wondferful & need attention!) were 1 Cor 1:9 which emphasises our fellowship being with Christ. I reflected that this is the starting point of true fellowship. 1 John 1:3 shows that the proclamation of the Gospel allows for true fellowship. In other words, unless the true Gospel is proclaimed & accepted, how can we have true fellowship! Also Psalm 32:6 really struck me as a warning to not postone confession of sins. In v 5 David says he acknowedged his sin to God & did not cover it up & God forgave him. Then David says: “Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them.”

    I recommend all the blog readers to read the scriptures attached to this post. I actually had some of those scriptures speak into some other stuff I’m facing at the moment. Ah, the Word is alive hallelujah! Praise God for His Word 🙂

    Lyn, welcome aboard! Thanks for your comment. I am praying God will direct as you face ‘stuff’ in your life.

    I’m so pleased that you highlighted the importance of reading the accompanying scriptural references. Often these posts consist of little more than Bible quotes organised to bring out important truths.

    [These are always linked to the ESV Bible and can be identified by the the blue type. Simply place your pointer over the text and left click.]

    Failing to read the references misses the purpose of the post.

    I was lucky enough to come accross this site as I am preparing a Bible study on Scripture memorization. In my mind the spiritual maturity that Paul speaks about seemed mainly to deal with reading and memorizing God’s word to us. I am sad to think I let my understanding of this issue be so narrow. Just reading this made me realize that just one of these habits can’t stand alone. Even though memorization is the topic of my study I need to show how how each of them work together to “grow” a mature, spiritual believer.
    I am so thankful the Lord led me here. I know I will be blessed the deeper I study these habits(and scriptures). Thank-you for providing a new understanding
