Is the Christian walk hard?
Anything is hard when the proper fundamentals are not applied. Anything is hard when the wrong tools are applied. Anything can be hard when the instruction manual is not utilized. A young man once said, “it’s hard being a Christian”. It was only hard for him because he didn’t live according to the instructions, which is the word of God. God’s word works. The word of God will stabilize emotions, eliminate worry, reconcile relationships, bring physical healing, help refrain from sin and prosper anyone if they only use proper application. Hearers of the word and not doers are only deceiving themselves. One can read the bible, commit it to memory verbatim, yet not apply it and never benefit from it. The walk is only hard when one is not serious. Find a solid “Word” teaching ministry, where the purpose is to grow in the grace and knowledge of God. Find a ministry that has the purpose of being conformed to the image and likeness of Christ. Don’t look for won’t help when your child is stricken, or your spouse hurt you, or your car blows a head gasket. You need information. The walk is not hard when you have information and daily use the application thereof…… It’s a wonderful life……..peace
