As a Catholic, how do I live my baptismal call? This is a crucial question for spiritual growth and should be addressed by all catholics at some point. In the following pages, we will briefly discuss some of the most important concepts for a catholic’s life. Hopefully, they will be of assistance to you in your journey. Until next time, happy baptizing!
– To live our baptized calling, we must love our Christian family, particularly those of the same faith. Not sharing the wealth and goods of the world is not a sign of genuine love for God or his people. Paul said that we all belong to the same body, which includes all baptized believers. Each part of this body must work together to fulfill its mission.
– At Mass, make sure to offer your life to God. Every day, you are offering your life to God and asking Him to use it for His glory. Your baptismal call is the source of the graces needed to live your Catholic life. When we offer ourselves to God in baptism, we are fulfilling the role of the first parents. They guarded the temple of creation, just as we are called to guard the temple of our body.
– Read Scripture and the Bible. The Bible is a living source of truth. The Bible has timeless examples of Christian living. Many saints were sinners trying to get closer to God. Reading the Bible gives you firsthand access to God’s Word and helps you live your baptismal calling as a Catholic. The Word of God teaches us how to live our lives according to God’s will. Reading the Bible is a powerful tool to help us do that.
The earliest Christian scriptures tell us to make disciples of all people. Jesus told us to baptize those we encounter in our lives. Jesus taught us to follow His example. To fulfill this call, we must live as disciples of Christ. We must follow Christ, whether it is through prayer or the Word. We are called to serve those who are baptized.
– Be an example of Christ’s love. Christ is the head of the church and cannot be limited by gender. His love for the world doesn’t depend on our race or gender. The Gospel calls us all to live the faith. It is the perfect example of the Christian life. Our baptismal call as a Catholic must reflect this vision. Living as an example of Christ, we should strive to understand him as our head.
