An honest and real faith in Christ, balanced with a healthy dose of pragmatism & reason will equip you to face anything you have to face in life, one day at a time by the grace of God.
Paul Johnson said in his History Of Christianity that “a sincere seeker of Truth has nothing to fear from the facts.” This is so true. A healthy belief does not run from facts but faces them, with the fire of faith; which burns even brighter through acceptance of truth.
There is a old saying that some are so spiritually minded that they’re no earthly good. This was true of the Pharisees and Sadducees in Jesus day. Our faith should make us benevolent like our Creator and philanthropic like the Heart of Jesus.
Our faith should make us the most grounded, well-rounded people on earth. We should be centered on Christ but active in service to our world. Faith should not remove us from practical contexts but make us more fulfilled and dynamic in everyday real life!
Jesus did not run from the issues of his day but faced them with the wisdom of the Father and the understanding Heavenly Counsel and the might of Spiritual Power. Not only give you make claims of Divinity but was the most socially relevant Person to ever live.
I follow Christ! should mean: that we belong entirely to The Heavenly Father. And that we give ourselves unceasingly and unselfishly in service to the world around us, through the mighty outpouring and inner-working of the Holy Spirit.
