This mini book will provide you with seven steps along the path of righteousness; encouraging Christians that God is with them no matter what. Even though this Christian Survival Guide is short, it will provide readers with a taste of the kind of books I am writing to encourage the body of Christ today; as we prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. The first step to Christian survival will consider that God wants to restore those who may have been going through difficult times in their lives. It's very easy for a Christian to loose their spiritual edge, especially if they have been going through circumstances that have required all their attention. We shall consider how to rely more on God to motivate our spirituality in these last days of time. The second step to Christian survival will focus on how to exercise patience and love towards those in our churches and fellowships; those who may not conform to the way that we do things in the Kingdom of God. In this chapter we shall consider how to exercise patience and love rather than being overly critical and judgemental towards those in need of help and guidance in their lives. The third step towards Christian survival will evaluate the difference between judgment and spiritual discernment. In the first half of this chapter we shall consider how to correctly judge one another. In the second half of this chapter we shall consider the need to use discernment when facing some of the false doctrines that are invading our churches today. The forth step to Christian survival will discuss how to be led by the Holy Spirit, rather than adhering to a legalistic code of practice that many churches observe today. Christianity is not about observing some specific doctrine or even looking good before others, it's about obeying God and experiencing the leading of the Holy Spirit in our individual lives; even though that leading may be different to how God leads other people in their day-to-day walk with him. The fifth step to Christian survival will analyse the correct appropriation of God's grace in our lives. We need grace to help us seek God until he sets us free from the temptations and sins that plague many christians today; something that cannot be achieved through the observance of some law telling us that we should not sin. The penultimate key to Christian survival will attempt to gain an understanding between faith and works; works will not bring us to Christ. However, faith without works is dead. Therefore, we shall consider the right balance that we need to achieve between faith and works. The final step to Christian survival will discuss the need to be prepared to let God change us from vessels of dishonour into vessels of honour; fit for the Master's use. God is able to do this by allowing many of us to pass through various trails and difficulties that affect people today. Rather than running away from such trials and tribulations, God may be trying to speak to us and change us more into the image of his Son Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that this short book will encourage you to face whatever it is that comes against your life, and turn it into something good that will benefit both you and the Kingdom of God at the same time (Genesis 50:20).
