How to be a Christian

How to be a Christian
Many people desire to serve God but they do not know how to be a Christian, because of all the false knowledge, and the lack of Christian education, which, gives understanding of the foundational knowledge of Christ. This knowledge being the cornerstone of our faith, is important to our understanding of the scriptures. Through proper Christian education of the covenant, discernment is given allowing clear direction for faith so that believer can walk in covenant with God and live as covenant Christian.
 
Jesus Christ came to establish a covenant that we may be joined to God and live as a covenant Christian. Romans 15 v 12 And again, Esaias saith, there shall be a root of Jesse, and He that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in Him shall the Gentiles trust. God has made covenants and promises of redemption to man throughout the ages and Christ came to fulfill the scriptures in His death and resurrection that we may know how to be a covenant Christian.
 
Romans 15v16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. Amen, the Apostle Paul is saying here that by the doctrine of Christ, which he is preaching, it has the power to make our sacrifices of charity acceptable unto God. As we, daily labor at the altar of Christ we will see that there is also power to purge our conscience and heal our souls form the effects of iniquity. Only by Christian education of the covenant with God can we experience the full power of God to provide for the salvation of the soul through the covenant, which Christ established through His death and resurrection. By walking upon this path of righteousness, we will know how to be a Christian and how to use the sanctified tools of the 2nd covenant.
 
Being a covenant Christian means knowing how to walk by faith and please God daily functioning in our priesthood, with understanding of the elements of the gospel and our spiritual tools. Acknowledging stewardship who gives direction for faith by setting order to the knowledge of Jesus Christ, so that by our participation with God in covenant our souls are regenerated and our minds renewed.
