10 essentials for followers of Christ

The 10 callings below are essential for faithfully following Christ.
  1. Remind yourself daily of God’s undeserved gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7).
  2. Encounter God daily based on Hebrews 4:12 and Hebrews 4:16.
  3. Distrust yourself enough to trust in the Lord with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-7).
  4. Keep short accounts with God about sin (I John 1:9-2:2).
  5. Walk closely with those who walk with God (Psalm 1:1-3).
  6. Pursue wisdom by learning Scripture because “the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6).
  7. Humble yourself before God and humble yourself again (Matthew 18:1-5;1 Peter 5:5-6).
  8. Be connected with a local Church and serve God’s people (Ephesians 4:11-16; Hebrews 3:12-13; 13:7,17).
  9. Don’t live in a Christian huddle — live as salt to the earth and light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16).
  10. Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40).
