About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

Spiritual formation can be described as growth from spiritual infancy to mentorship. The Apostle John sets out three stages of spiritual growth in 1 John 2. He indicates that a person enters the first stage of growth when he or she becomes a baby Christian by trusting in the Father through Christ (1 John 2:12-14). As a Christian grows, he or she eventually becomes a young warrior (vs 13b, 14b). After learning spiritual warfare in this stage, a person progresses to become a seasoned warrior and later a father-mentor in the faith (13a, 14a).

Once upon a time, not long ago on Sunday, churches were full, stores, gas stations and even saloons were closed and families spent a day together. Well, fast forward to our day and Sunday is a fully scheduled day to get everything in that we missed over the week or the day for the cabin, the lake and the ball game. What about the church?

Why do you read the Bible? Or maybe I should ask the question, why do you not read the Bible? As someone who teaches the Bible in both the context of the university and the church, it is clear that many Christians do not take reading their Bibles seriously. In this blog post, I want to briefly discuss a few reasons why you should be engaged in the spiritual discipline of Bible reading on a regular basis, how you can build the habit of regular Bible reading into your life and some ways to approach the Bible

As with every year on campus, I’ve been encouraged to see the ways that the Lord has used our humble efforts to change students’ lives and to strengthen their faith.

The virtues of faith and hope are essential in a Christian’s life but that that does not mean they are automatic or easy. As Christians face difficult times in their paths, they often stumble into fear, uncertainty and despair. This is not surprising or unusual because it is human nature to be fearful and timid when life is tough.

How do we worship God with our technology? A popular blog at Inc says that the average person spends four hours a day on their phones alone. If we add in time that is spent for jobs or school on computers it is not hard to imagine that number doubling or tripling. With so much time engaging technology, a relevant question may be asked, “Is technology good or bad in the eyes of God?”

Conversion to Jesus experiences in Scripture are everywhere; the process takes many forms and may be sudden or gradual in character. The New Testament is clear about conversion being indispensable to Christian believing and therefore believers in and followers of Jesus must continue to share boldly, with grace and love, the need for conversion—for this is the way into God’s kingdom.
