Christian responsibility includes living a consistent Christian life.
The Bible teaches personal responsibility and accountability to God. We are accountable to God for the life we live. The sadness of all sadness would be for death to come and find us as failures in living a consistent Christian life.

Christian responsibility includes being a Christian example.
Christian growth should bring us to the point of a life of love, peace, joy and meekness. We should be like our master, Jesus Christ. Paul wrote, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.” (Galatians 5:22-26) Following this simple teaching will produce a powerful Christian example.
Christian responsibility includes daily Bible study.
It is from the Bible that we learn of God. We read, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) It is from the Bible that we learn God’s will for man. It is from the Bible that we learn our responsibility toward God. The Bible is God’s word. When we think of the Bible “Revelation” is the key word.
Christian responsibility includes having the right attitude.
Our attitude toward our spouse, children, parents, siblings, neighbors, the lost, co-workers and fellow Christians will be one factor that will determine our eternal destiny. Is my attitude toward others what a Christian’s attitude should be? A true Christian must always have the right attitude about life. This right attitude is described in psalm 15………..
Christian responsibility includes attending all the services of the church.
Christians are warned to, “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25) I need the strength of Christian fellowship. I want my attitude to be that of David when he said, “I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
Christian responsibility includes a daily prayer life.
Prayer is both a responsibility and a privilege for a Christian. Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7) Many of the great promises of Jesus relate to prayer. For example, Jesus said, “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22) God does answer the prayer of a faithful Christian. The Christian life must be a life of daily prayer.
Christian responsibility includes scriptural giving.
Our giving must include the giving of our time, talent and money. But, if we do not give our money it is difficult to give anything else. Our giving or lack of it, can either cause God to withhold blessings from us or to give so much we can not even receive all that He gives. (Malachi 3:8-11) Let us learn to be liberal in our giving.
Christian responsibility includes our efforts to save those who are not Christians.
It is the responsibility of one Christian to teach another about Christ. “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2) Evangelism is a command of the Lord Jesus. “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15) Christians must teach the lost about the one that brings salvation. The joy of Christianity is in bringing others to Christ. The challenge for each of us is to spend enough time with Jesus that we can become soul-winners.
