Dont force yourself to live like a "christian" if you believe and read the word of God then good works and right living automatically come out. You wont force yourself to be a follower of Christ you WILL be one and you will live like Christ. So many of us try to portray ourselves as "Holy" but as WE try to do that it shows what little relationship we have with the Lord. We are trying to be "Holy" for the sake of others. To make it seem like we are doing good. This is our pride, we are trying to be someone we are not. Many people say Christians don't smoke drink or dance; well that's a personal conviction. We can't say you can't to this or that because you are a christian. It depends on your heart and what the Lord tells you to stay away from. See drinking may be a problem for one person, but it might not be a big deal for another one. It is only wrong when you put it before God, when you spend more time doing that then in the Word. Everyone is different so the Lord has to deal with each of us personally. We have no room to talk. Matthew 7:1, 2 says “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measures you use, it will be measured to you.”
If we want to "live right" that's something that we need the Lord to help us with. We need to understand the Love of the Father before we can change. We need to experience that never ending Love. In our youth group at Church I mentioned how a lot of us know about the Father's Love, but we don't know that love for ourselves. It hasn't been something that we've come to know; it's something we have heard about and think man that's SO cool, but we haven't experienced for ourselves. We need to know that Love, it will change our way of living. After you experience that Love you will never be the same.
