The Truth About Being A Christian in 2019

by
It's not easy being a Christian, especially in 2019. We are living in a world where it's difficult to be a Christian for numerous reasons. In this article, I'm going to talk about the truth about being a Christian in 2019.

God is the same yesterday today and forever more. God does not change. God will always be God. God's ways and thoughts will always be the same because God knows everything, God knows the beginning from the end.

However, people change, we as a people change, we as Christians change. So, Christianity in 2019 is different than how it was in 2018.

1. Being A Christian in 2019 is Hard



Being a Christian is not easy at all; it's actually hard. Jesus never said that this life would be easy. In fact, he said that we would have trials and tribulations.

We all have to pick up our Cross and follow Jesus. The Bible says that if we suffer with him, that we'll reign with him.

So, when you choose to follow Christ, you're going to go through a lot of things for his name sake.

So, this is why it's not easy to be a Christian. Jesus faced a lot of persecution and rejection. He was an outcast, and the world hated him.

So, it will be no different for Christians in 2019. When you dedicate your life to the lord and try to live a different life, you will suffer for your faith.

2. Not Being Like The World in 2019



As a Christian, you shouldn't live, talk, or behave like how the world does. You have to be holy as God is holy. You have to put on the full armor of God.

You have to be righteous and purify your heart. When you do this, the world will hate you, and you're not going to be liked by most people. So, this is why it's hard to be a Christian in 2019.

3. Loneliness in 2019



A lot of Christians are lonely and will continue to be lonely because of their decision to follow Jesus.

When you're a Christian, you're not going to be the most liked or the most popular. So, this will result in you having less friends.

The Bible says that you shouldn't conform to the things of this word.

So, when you take your focus from the word and put it towards God, you're going to lose friends; this is what happens all the time.

The Bible says that bad company corrupts good Character.

So, if you hang out with certain people who aren't living how you live or follow your morals and values, then you will start acting like them.

So, sometimes you're going to have to cut some people out of your life. Letting go of certain people is never easy.

However, you have to do what God wants you to do, and sometimes that means removing certain people from your life.

4. Christian Struggles in 2019



As I said, being a Christian is not easy at all. As a Christian, you're going to be faced with a lot of struggles. I'm talking about addictions such as porn, alcohol, drugs and other habits that you might have.

Sometimes you might feel worthless, feel like you're not good enough. However, remember that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins and he loves you very much.

Also, you should know that Jesus is willing to forgive you of all of your sins. So, don't be so hard on yourself.

5. Loving Your Enemies in 2019



It is so easy to love those who love you back; to be kind to those are kind to you. However, even the sinners do exactly that, so there's nothing special about loving those who already love you.

However, it's completely different when you love people who don't love you, who aren't nice to you, and wrongfully use you and despise you. This is hard and it is what a lot of Christians go through on a daily basis.

6. Doubt In 2019



As a Christian a 2019, don't be surprise if you have to deal with doubt. Sometimes you might find yourself questioning God, not being sure about his plan for your life. Doubt is something that all Christians will experience at some point or another in their life.

You'd be surprised at how unbelief can creep up in your life; it happens to the best of us.

There are times where you might come across people who will try and convince you that God isn't real and will cause you to walk away from your faith. However, you shouldn't let these people convince you that Jesus isn't real or that you don't need God.

7. Relationships in 2019



The dating scene can be a bit complicated for Christians because you can't just go off looks or general things that the world cares about. The Bible says that you should not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. So, you should only be in relationships with people who are saved and share your faith.

8. Not Reading The Bible Enough in 2019



The Bible says that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. So, the Bible is showing us that we should read our Bible so that we can grow in the word of God.

Sadly, most Christians don't read their Bible, and if they do read their Bible, they only read it when they go to church on a Sunday.

As a Christian, this should not be the case, you should read your Bible and pray every single day.

Paul says that we have to die daily, we have to crucify the flesh, so you can only do this when you get in the word of God and try to get closer to him in worship and through prayer.

The problem is that if you don't read your Bible, you will slowly start to walk away from God because you need the word of God to keep you in check, to teach you how you should live.

So, you should treat the Bible like food, the same way you need food to survive in this world, then you also need the Bible to survive.

The more you read your Bible, the closer you will get to God. Also, God will reveal certain things to you when you get into his word. He will encourage you and lead you in the right path.

He might even tell you a scripture or a word that you should share with your friends or even family members.

So, God can speak to you through his word. So, that's why it's important that you read your Bible on a daily basis so that you can hear what the spirit of God l is saying to you.

9. Lust & Sexual Temptations As A Christian in 2019



Often times Christians will struggle with lust and sexual temptations. However, these are struggles that everyone on this earth will deal with at one point or another in their life or even on a daily basis. Let's face it, none of us are immune to sin or lust and sexual Temptations.

The Bible says that God does not tempt us, God does not tempt any man to sin, however, we are tempted when we are drawn away of our own lost, which will lead to sin, and then death.

If you're struggling with sexual temptation, then you have to give it up to the Lord. You have to confess your sins to Jesus and let him know how you feel and what you're struggling with. Also, sometimes the struggles can be a direct result of things that we consume on a daily basis.

Perhaps, you're watching movies or listening to music that is causing you to think certain thoughts or have impure desires.

Also, perhaps there are people in your life that are giving off that energy or that is enticing you to do certain things. So, these are things that you should take into consideration.

However, nothing is too hard for God. So, all you have to do is pray and seek the face of God and also fast so that you will be able to order, the sinful desires that you're struggling with.

10. Putting God First in 2019



Often times it is so easy to not put God first, a lot of times we can put everyone and everything else first but God . However, God should be first in your life all the time.

When you wake up early in the morning, God should be the first person that you talk to. You should pray, read your Bible, and worship him. So, when you start your day off with prayer and worship, then things will work out for you as it pertains to the rest of your day.

So, if you put God first, then God will put you first as well. So, make sure that everything else comes second and that God comes first.

11. Forgiving Others in 2019



Forgiving others might be one of the hardest things for a Christian to do. In fact, even for anyone in general. It's not always easy to forgive.

When people do us wrong and really hurt us, sometimes it can be in our nature to not want to forgive them or to even try and get back at them and hurt them the same way that they hurt us. It's almost as if we want to get revenge, or to just get even with the person.

However, when it comes to forgiveness, and there is no better example than Jesus. Understand that Jesus died for us while we were yet sinners. Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

Also, even when he was dying on the cross he still cried out father forgive them for they know not what they do. So, as you can see, Jesus was very forgiving towards everyone. He taught us how to love and how to forgive each other.

The thing about forgiveness is that, if you don't forgive others, then your heavenly father in heaven won't forgive you either.

So, you can't expect God to forgive you, when you won't even forgive someone who hurts you. So, if you want to be forgiven by God, then you must learn to forgive others for what they've done to you.

Understand that no matter who you are in life, you're going to experience pain, you're going to come across people who will not like you for no reason at all or who will hurt your feelings or offend you and cause pain to you. This is just how life is.

However, you should still forgive the person for what they've done to you. When you forgive, you are showing the love of God, the love that Jesus wants you to have, love that you should show to everyone in this world.

When you do this, You'll end up doing exactly what God wants you to do, and that is to be an example, and to show the world how to love, how to forgive, and how to be different.

So, if you want to be like Jesus Christ, then you should definitely forgive those who have done you wrong. I know it's easier said than done, but with the help of God you can do it.

Also, understand that having unforgiveness in your heart can lead to health problems, sickness, disease, stress, and just bad energy in general.

You don't want to have people up in your heart or to even have something against them. So, it's good to let go and let God and to also forgive others who have done you wrong.

Conclusions



As you can see, it's not always easy being a Christian. As a Christian in 2019, you will face a lot of difficulties and hardships. You'll be rejected and also be the outcast at times.

You're not going to have a lot of friends, especially when you're trying your best to be holy and live differently from the world.

Even though being a Christian is hard, you will be rewarded by God for your faithful to him. God loves his children and is always looking out for them. So, eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love him.
