A religious life is a life focused on the belief in, and worship of, a higher power, or a great creator, such as the Christian God or several gods and goddesses. Leading a religious life is not forbidden to those with a rocky past full of immoral actions and sins. Sinners are welcome to conform their lives and begin living a religious, fulfilling life, and to change religions, and lead a religious life following a new religion.
- Begin your journey of living a religious life by committing yourself to the belief in your chosen religion. The process of choosing a religion and committing your life to that religions, will vary according to the different religions. For example, as a Christian, you will be expected to believe in the sole creator, God, and that the Lord God sent His son to die on a cross for your sins.
- Attend religious services regularly, or as you feel necessary. Attend these events for fellowship with other believers.
- Read and study your Bible or religious texts. Seek answers to questions in your life by consulting the texts. Seek religious leaders or other believers to assist you in understanding confusing passages, text, or beliefs of your religion.
- Act like a believer. Perform actions that represent your faith and the moral guidelines of your religion. Do not deny your religion or engage in activities that falsely represent your faith, such as drinking or being promiscuous.
- Pray or give thanks as often as you feel necessary. Do not limit prayer to when you are in need. Try to say a prayer each morning in thanks of the new day, and a prayer each night. Say prayers for friends in need. Find the confidence to say prayers in front of others, and ask to say prayers before leaving on trips, or any other time you feel that prayer is necessary. Pray or give thanks to chosen God, gods, or goddesses.
- Surround yourself by others who have chose to live religious lives. Avoid making friends with non-believers or persons with habits or behaviors that draw you away from your religion and beliefs. Make friends with others in your church.
- Share your faith with friends and family members. Reach out to those in need of friends, or those who you think need to accept your religion in order to better appreciate their lives and find happiness. Testify about your religion and how it has affected your own life.
- Raise your children to believe in and practice your religion.
- Volunteer for jobs within your church or to be a missionary within or outside of the country, for a short time, or for a length of time.
