His chesed has been shown through his mercy and passion in a myriad of ways. I have come to learn and understand God’s chesed, and how it has and will continue to benefit me for the remainder of my life. To begin, one must understand what chesed really is. Chesed is God’s promise to his people and commitment to a relationship with humankind. The meaning can be simplified down to a mere two words, God’s loyalty.
One Life, by Scot McKnight, was an appealing testament of how we should go about life in a way that reflects God’s mission and plans for His people. The purpose for this book was so common people reading are, hopefully, influenced to live out their “one life” for God. McKnight explains, in great detail, of what God’s intentions are for us. He also provides the reader with many options on how to overcome temptations we face. This book was discussing several obstacles that may seem as a concern, but are also great descriptions on what every human may run into; however, it is also very clear in McKnight’s writing, that we can abstain from those worldly desires.
During the course of the book, Benjamin can be described as a man whose work ethic is driven to help things around him become better. Also, he was a major leader in this book and always wanted to help others and when he was called to lead the military he did. Benjamin Franklin has played in multiple roles that helped make the world as it is today. I see Benjamin Franklin as a role model to anyone and everyone that wants to lead and work their hardest to make a difference in this world one day and also a role model to those who want to always put the world and others before them. Benjamin Franklin is a great man and a very important founding father of the
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out! It is a responsibility placed upon each believer to decide to obey God’s word and live out this great salvation worked in us by Christ.
And you are the guy who 'll decide where to go.” Dr. Seuss. OLG has taught me many important lessons that have prepared me for high school. I’m thankful for the values OLG has taught me. I have received a great education and an understanding of my religion that has readied me for an amazing high school career and later a great life. One of the most important values OLG has taught me is to accept everyone because we are all equal in God’s eyes.
Certainly, I am called to pray and to embrace each soul—the lost souls with the love of Christ and not despise the “little one”. In the light of hope, I gather all people back to the New Eden Garden. Absolutely, my way of living out my faith is to love my brethren including those I serve as God has always loved us. Despite their differences in faith practices, culture, tradition, interest, and ethnicity, I am called to embrace everyone with an openness of heart. As Pope Francis asserted well in his encyclical letter: Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel without excluding anyone.
It is a leader’s responsibility to serve others and inspire them to live fuller lives. Throughout the past few years, I have worked to become the best leader possible in hopes of enacting positive change. I’m often the person my friends turn to when they need encouragement. Though it can certainly be nerve-wracking to risk failure, seeking new opportunities is an important avenue of growth. I attempt to incorporate this message in all of my endeavors, including as a Gatton Academy Avatar.
Andrade choose to show us the two important things he tells his students, the first one being that they are going to be in their lives forever and two is that they loved them. For Andrade to use these words to his students it’s his way of telling them they matter and to “water” and “soil” the little spot they are growing in. The audience can see how these words can help these
The Lord desires for all of His people to work together in harmony to complete his work. The life of Nehemiah is filled with wonderful stories, whose principals remain relevant to us today. God not only placed Nehemiah’s story in the Bible to give us a history of Jerusalem’s walls, but also to teach us how we should
Martin Luther King “I have a dream, that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…” this wonderful speech about equality was said by Martin Luther King. To this day, because of him, all men are created equal, Negro or white. He is an inspiration to me and hopefully more people, he also helped others come together to work for peace, and I will try to live out the role that he played for our country. Martin Luther King Jr. was a very inspiring and helpful man. He had a brother (Alfred Daniel Williams King), sister ( Christine King Ferris), mother ( Alberta Williams King), and father ( Martin Luther King Sr.).
Having all those closest to me in support of my decision has been amazing. All their encouraging words and wisdom has been overwhelming, but at the same time is a huge part of my driving force to succeed. I look forward to the challenges ahead of me in this new journey at CCU. I know life isn’t always easy but that is not in God’s promise, He only promises that our journeys will be worth the wait and struggles in the end. Knowing that God is always on my side is such an amazing feeling and I am excited to say that my heart is once again on fire for Jesus right along with my students
The Bible serves as a guide to the lives of all of mankind. The Bible states, “All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in all righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). It is important to know and live out the scriptures. The scriptures shape our character and help us function in a manner that is pleasing to God. When one reads scripture, they will discover many scriptures on character.
