Christian Living

This category contains items about Christian Living and related topics.


"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matthew 7:13-14).

We should expect to face our share of difficulties as we strive to live as Christ did. Our Christian Living articles aim to expound on just what it means to be a Christian: the way of life we need to be living, the obstacles we’ll face, how to overcome them and the rewards that await us.
