In the bible, the book of Isaiah, chapter 41, verse 10 says, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you…” Owen resembles Christ when he too says to John not to be afraid. Owen is there for John just as he always has been, resembling Christ in the book of Matthew, chapter 28, verse 20, “I am with you always.” Owen is Christ-like in many ways. Everyone wants to touch him like in the Gospel of Luke the crowd presses towards Jesus, wanting to touch him because of his healing abilities. Christ describes himself as the light of the world and Owen is constantly associated with light. His skin reflects and absorbs light, “as with a pearl, so that he appeared translucent at times.”
How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.
After Watergate, the only thing that mattered to Colson was having a right relationship with Christ and ministering the grace he had received to as many people as possible. Psalm 25:4-5 says, “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied” both of these versus speaks into how Colson thought, felt, and acted. Charles Colson’s life is a powerful testimony to the transforming power of the Gospel. 1 Corinthians 15:47-49 perfectly describes Colson when it says, “One who bore the image of the man of dust became one who bore the image of the man of Heaven.” Colson wrote “The real story was that Christ had reached down to me, even in my disgrace and shame, and revealed Himself as the One who forgives and makes new.
“Behind every great man there’s a great women.” This quote by Meryll Frost was first used in 1946 during his acceptance speech for the most courageous athlete of 1945. He gave credit to his wife and noted that he would not have received the award without her help. To this quote could have also been used to describe Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams. She was a courageous woman who stood out to against in justice. Throughout her entire life she stood greatly with courage and was also known for her loyalty for her country and family.
Milos Kulina Elie’s faith towards God changes a lot as the story goes on. In the beginning of the work, his faith in God is complete. In chapter one when asked why he prays to God, he says, “Why did I pray?... Why did I live? Why did I breathe?” His belief in God is great, and he cannot imagine living without faith in his divine power.
“Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou introduces the value of respect in a beautifully displayed poem. “A Good Man” and “Still I Rise” are excellent pieces of literature that exemplify the values of empowerment and respect. “A Good Man” demonstrates empowerment constantly throughout the novel. For example, Mark Shriver’s father, Sargent Shriver, and his faith empowered him all throughout his life. With his faith, he empowered his family to attend Church weekly.
Genesis 1:31, “God made us all and everything he made he saw it to be very good” (KJV). Why do I exist? Mankind exist to glorify God, to minister to those who are lost turning them back to the knowledge of the living God. Matthew 28:19, says, “Go ye therefore into all the world and teach them, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost” (KJV). Dr. Myles Monroe (2013), said, “I would presume all mankind was made to live for a purpose.” Even Christ existed for a purpose, John 6:38, “For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me” (KJV).
The nature of this miracle—essentially reorganizing matter—emphasizes Christ’s role as the creator, or organizer of all creation. His ability to organize and reorganize matter, as physically manifested in this story, can provide a new perspective from which to view the Atonement. I learned from this passage that just as Christ can organize and reorganize matter at will, so too can he mold me into something new. The imagery of the sacrament contained in this passage is purposeful; as I renew my covenants with my Savior each week, I am able to offer up my heart to him, to be reorganized and made stronger. And perhaps, one day at a time--even as he changed the water to wine, the spirit to flesh, the divine to mortal—he will take my imperfect soul and make me like him
43:4) in the name of Yahusha Ha Mashiach. Therefore, what Yahuah (God) has for me nothing can take it away from me, and I pray for divine intervention to happen between us right now in Yahusha name! I thank you Yahusha for bringing me, my perfect match, I am bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. I thank you for sending the protective covering for me. Heavenly Father, please protect my husband’s state of mind and physical well-being because of praying this prayer.
For instance, we are to first to give thanks to God, by offering him our first fruits and praise his holy name in spirit and truth.

In addition to the central figure of the Resurrected Christ, the window 's three tiers show angels and cherubs joyfully praising the Lord on the same heavenly tier as Jesus. The tier below Jesus shows glorified spirits in the form of knights in armor of light, who symbolize the virtues of Fidelity, Nobility, Honor, Humility, Devotion, Patience, Sincerity, Brotherly Love, and Charity (Knox United Church, n.d., para. 4). Finally, the lowest tier shows us why the window is named “The Memorial Window”. In the bottom tier, we face our humanity and the horrors of war.
Matthew 24:24-51 is the main passage of scripture that includes the importance of always being faithful. When we read these seven verses and the passages of scripture in the before and after verses, we see how Jesus is preparing his disciples, including us, for the future. In the first few verses of Matthew 24:45-51 Jesus tells his disciples a story about how remaining faithful until the very end

Jesus Christ’s life and teachings are the guide to peace in this life and joy in eternity. The gospel of Jesus Christ blesses all who accept and live it. God reveals his gospel through the use of prophets such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses. The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ states, “Prophets teach us about God and are special witnesses of Jesus Christ, receive revelation or direction from the Lord, and teach the gospel to the world and interpret the word of God (4).” Prophets receive the priesthood and act in the name of God to lead his children. People who choose to follow the prophets obtain the blessings that God has promised.
