Parameters for Accurate Christian Living

As Christians we have at the back of our minds that we must make heaven. Everyone's goal is to see that their lifestyle pleases God so that eternity with Christ can be in view.

In this article, I will be exposing to us the necessary criteria for spending eternity with Christ from the word of God.


Romans 8:1 says, "For there is now NO CONDEMNATION for THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST. WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH but AFTER THE SPIRIT".

From the above scripture, we see that there are key points to note which are; - Condemnation: This is a state were the finished work of Christ has no effect in the life of a man. Such a person has not received the life of Christ in his spirit hence he is hell bound.alk not after the Flesh, Walk after the - In Christ: This is a state were a person has accepted the lordship of Jesus Christ over his life. Here, such a person is born again. - Walk after the Flesh: This is a lifestyle that is a typical expression of the patterns of this world. That is a person lives a life of perpetual and habitual sin. - Walk after the Spirit:This is a lifestyle that is a typical expression of the character of Christ. That is Christ is formed in such a person. He has become the model of Christ on the earth.

Having understood these terms we must realize that what the scripture was telling us is that for us to not be hell bound we must first accept the lordship of Jesus over our lives--being born again. Secondly, we must ensure that we do not live in a state of perpetual sin. Mind you, you can be fervent church worker, tithe payer and still live a life of perpetual. These activities are good but if you engage in church activities and still live in sin you are signing up for hell. Having ensured that we do not live in perpetual sin, we must also strive to see that our lives express the uncompromising character of Christ. We must live in righteousness if we want to make heaven and to avoid the judgment of God over our lives.Activity in the church can not underplay the importance of living a righteous life.

In summary, for the you to make heaven you must accept and submit yourself to the lordship if JESUS over your life, Avoid continuous unrighteousness and walk in righteousness.
