Three Ways to Live Your Faith Every Day

by | May 1, 2017 | Faith

First things first, let’s define the difference between practicing your faith and living it every single day. Practicing your faith is what makes it possible for you to live it by establishing faithful habits and routines. It helps you recognize the parts and moments in your life where you are already strong in your faith and, upon reflection, it helps you notice the moments that may need more work. Practicing your faith is saying prayers, attending services, and making intentional choices each day that reflect your faith and love for God.

But, living your faith is taking these practices to the next level. Living your faith involves actively choosing to build a relationship with and deepen your faith in God every moment of every day. It’s waking up in the morning ready to live boldly as a beacon of hope for others and to walk through each day in humble steps of dependence on God. Put simply, living your faith is transforming it from a personal belief into a lifestyle.

Follow these tips to make sure you live your faith with audacity every single day.

Wake up expecting God to show up

Before you even get out from under your covers each morning, tap into your spiritual cognizance and recognize this new day is a gift from God. Before you begin the hustle and bustle of the day ahead, make an effort every morning to communicate with God because the next 24 hours are not only another chance to get it right, but a chance to chase your dreams, or even change the world. Every 24 hours is another chance for you to build your relationships and live your actions through faith.

Expressing Gratitude

Living your faith every day requires you to not only thank God for your fortunate circumstances or when things go right, but also when life doesn’t go the way you planned. True faith is expressed in both the good and bad moments in life. So, form a habit of expressing gratitude for the hardships and struggles each day brings because these instances serve as moments to strengthen your faith and lean more on God.

Love others with God’s love rather than your own

We all know that it’s not always easy to love everyone – especially those who have hurt us or treated us in a way that is less than Christian. This is why it’s important to remember to love everyone through God’s love and not your own. This way, people will recognize the faith we practice each day by the way we live and love with it.

Like all relationships in life, your faith and spirit need continual care and attention. So, use each day to renew your spirit in God. Make intentional choices each day that reflect a purer heart than the day before. In doing so, your spirit will be renewed through the actions of each day.

What's the difference between knowledge and wisdom? Aren’t they the same thing? While some might think so, this is far from the truth. Both knowledge and wisdom are an integral part of life and business but are not interchangeable in every situation. Recognizing...
