An anonymous person once said that “we aren’t called to shine our own lights; we are called to reflect His.” A born again Christian, once fully understanding the gospel and putting his or hers trust in Jesus, will desire to want to grow and obey God in order to honor and glorify Him, and since the only one who kept God’s law perfectly was Jesus, then one will want manifest and imitate Christ in everything he or she does. Not only does reflecting Christ’s image glorify God, it stands out to others as well. All true believers experience radical change because of the Spirit, and that change shines like a bright light towards other people leading them to ask, wonder, and desire that change and growth in their own lives as
She asked, “Have you finished sewing the buttons on those shirts for Captain Rand?” “No ma’am, but I can sew on the buttons in the evenings after supper, I won’t mind the extra time, please let me―(Bristow 3).” Celia is like this because of her religious beliefs for example in the bible it says “And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these (Mark 12:31 NIV). Love your neighbors as you love yourself, Celia is doing that, this is why her religious beliefs are really showing throughout the story. Towards the middle of the book she is still acting and proving her religious beliefs. “Miss Garth.” Celia turned toward her again.
He takes it, makes it all good, and then tells us what to do when we meet with him in worship. That is the major reason why you shouldn’t take your worship for granted. It is the hedge we have over others. Anything that happens in the physical has already taken place in the spiritual. That is why as Christians, you need to be connected through worship so you can always receive direction and inspiration from God.
Mary Rowlandson Ashleyann Mabatid Azusa Pacific University College Mary Rowlandson Reading this week’s assigned reading about Mary Rowlandson was interesting. Mary Rowlandson lived a Puritan life and she devoted her life to God. She had strong feelings that her actions and the followers around her did the right thing when they were confronted by the wilderness and people they did not understand. Her faith prevented them from understanding what was happening in the New World. The Puritans were devoted to Christ’s salvation.
With religion being a pillar of our community, there is a strong emphasis to wait to engage in sexaul activity until married. Folkways are norms for routine or casual interaction ( Macionis, 2017). In our community we have a large population of Apostolic Faith believers. It is common practice for women who are church members to wear long skirt and their hair in a bun. Social control is the attempt by society for people to regulate people’s thoughts and behavior (Macionis, 2017).
Involvement of individuals planning their support: We have to make sure the service users comes first. This means they get to be involved if they think their needs to be improvements within the care home and what support they want. For example, a service user may want more activities to be able to socialise with other adults. Respect for religious beliefs: Each service user within our care must be respected with their religious beliefs. Making sure there is halal meat for Muslims, prayer rooms, allowing Christians to go church, providing religious books, wanting a female carer.
In this instance, Dolores is upset and emotional after a confrontation with Maya’s father. Even though Dolores responds with hostility, Maya feels she has succeeded because she has “shown [her]self in a favorable and Christian light” (Angelou 245). Her motivation to be compassionate is based on her deep-seated religious beliefs and to show that she practices her religion in the way that she has been instructed. Her religion has taught her that in this
Lewis, one of my favorite authors’ explanations of the two types of prayer; the prayer of petition and the prayer of affirmation. In the prayer of petition we ask God to be involved in our lives for our own needs and wants whether they are legitimate or not. In the prayer of affirmation we really ask God to fulfill his will. There is no one way, in different situations we may pray differently. Personally, I prefer prayers of affirmation because no matter what, God’s will will be what happens.
For me, all of them gave an example of how the leader is concerned about his people’s life. As a Christian, King Baldwin IV respects his religion so he also respects Muslims. He was struggling with his illness and still fight to protect his people. Balian of Ibelin makes a decision to ensure the safety his people and not to sacrifice more lives in the middle of war. In Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott gives a new perspective of Muslims in Hollywood movie.
I would also say that they watch us every day and will always be there if you pray to them. The most important lesson from this book, All About the Angels, is that we should thank the angels for everything they have done. Usually, most people don’t pray to them daily. After reading this book, I believe everyone should say a prayer to their guardian angels to show their gratitude towards them. The angels teach many lessons such as completely believing in God’s word.
