Biblical principles To Live By


Biblical principles to live by - Rejoicing in the Lord

God's people who are redeemed by the Lord and saved by His grace are supposed to be the most joyful people of the world, because of the unshakable hope they have in Christ.

There is no greater joy than the joy of Salvation, which is the gift received by everyone who has placed their trust in Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.

We must learn how to live by Faith, to eliminate worry and anxiety from our lives.

Philippians 4:4-8 

4Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

6Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Proverbs 17:22-A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

1 Peter 2:24-Who his own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Biblical principles to live by - Seeking God’s Wisdom and Instruction

Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. There is no wisdom apart from God. All wisdom comes from Him. If you do not have God, you do not have wisdom, even if the world calls you intelligent. Bible is a wisdom book. God speaks straight to your spirit through His written word. Read it before you read any news or social media messages.

Proverbs 3:7-8-Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 4:20-22-My son, attend to my words; incline your ear unto my sayings.

Biblical principles to live by - Obedience

Jesus said that love has to be demonstrated by obedience rather than just words.

Jesus himself demonstrated His love for us by the greatest sacrifice on the cross, not in just words.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20-What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

1 Corinthians 3:17-If any man defile the temple of God, he shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.

Exodus 15:26-And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.

Biblical principles to live by - Soul Prosperity

A prosperous soul is a soul filled with God’s truth and has consistent open communication with God all the time. To be filled with the Holy Spirit more and more, you must seek and grow in God’s truth and knowledge of the Word of God every single day.

Prayer must be centred on God’s will for us, rather than our own wish. A prosperous soul is a soul filled with God’s presence and nourishes itself with unchanging joy and peace that comes from Christ alone.

Unwanted anxiety, fear, doubt and worry are the result of a lack of trust in God. These lies sicken the soul. Hope and trust in God make your soul prosperous.

3 John 1:2-Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Biblical principles to live by - Focus on God’s Glory

God’s glory should be the aim of every Christian, in every single activity that we do.

We must live with the intent of bringing glory to God in the workplace, at the vacation, while travelling, while teaching, while in a public place, while in your room, while in the Church and while in the market.

Wherever we are, we must focus to be God pleasers and not people pleasers.

1 Corinthians 10:31-Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Biblical principles to live by: Taming the Tongue

It is essential to speak words with wisdom. We cannot yell at a co-worker in the workplace on one day for trivial reasons and preach the gospel to them the next day.

Proverbs 16:24-Pleasant words [are as] a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Biblical principles to live by - Thankfulness

Acknowledging God’s provision is one of the greatest duties of a Christian. We are alive because of God’s grace. We have all that we have because of God’s lovingkindness and mercies and not because of anything good on our part, because we are a big fat zero without God.

Exodus 23:25-And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Ephesians 5:20-Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Psalms 100:4-Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, [and] into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name.

Colossians 3:15-17-And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 4:2-Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

Biblical principles to live by: Redeeming the Time

Making the best use of time is one of the responsibilities that a Christian cannot ignore. We have limited time on earth, to fulfil our God-given responsibilities. We cannot waste our God-given time here on earth. Wisely learn and use the Biblical principles on time management, as this is essential for a good Christian living. Christ’s return is nearer than before.

Ephesians 5:16-Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Colossians 4:5-Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

Psalms 90:12-So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
