I would describe practical christianity as doing the things you know are right.Visiting the sick and elderly,helping those who are poor as much as you can,being kind to others,forgiving loving.living as much like jesus as possible.

Christians should act today as they acted long ago, like God taught us to act. I don't know if 'practicality' has anything to do with being a good Christan.

maybe the question should be 'how can christianity apply to the real world?'

Practical Christianity, is suffering with Jesus Christ. If one is truly following Jesus they will experience some sufferings. Not all suffer same degree or as much. All will experience some. Are you truly following Jesus?

Practical Christianity is living, breathing and experiencing the Word of God every hour of every day. This is a progressive experience, we aren't born again one day and living for the Lord to the fullest extent the next. It takes Spiritual growth and that comes by Bible study, prayer, faith, reckoning and yielding to the Lord. Practical Christianity is walking in the Spirit.

I agree with Kady. As Christians we must show our love to the lost by our actions. There is so much need in the world (for practical things) and we should be there helping just as many secular agencies are. We should also be aware of needs within our midst. Christians are often not very good at making their needs known to each other but when we DO know we should act and use what resources we have (time, money, spare goods of some kind) to help our brethren. This is putting our faith into practice.

Yes, Kady, that's good. I'd say, "'But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.'" (Matthew 6:33) This gets us with God, in His level of practicality for creating this universe but also how well He can have us doing loving things better than my natural ability can. And the emotional benefit of how Your love makes me sweetly rested while doing things and dealing with people > this is VERY practical (((o:

This is a term being used by
"Practical Christian Living - appealing to the masses with a seeker-friendly gospel."

A faith you can believe, a hope you can trust, it doesn't get more practical than that.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Haven't heard this term being used, but when I think of practical in terms of my walk with God I think of doing those things I know to do that don't require supernatural gifts to be in operation, such as supporting charities, being a listening ear to someone in pain, helping out with practical stuff like grocery shopping for someone who's lost a loved one, visiting a lonely elderly neighbor, etc. Letting your light shine through practical means.
