We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing. He knew just what to say to who; He was such amazing leader; and walked with confidence and never allowed the devil to take away what He had. Bust us? Well, we can never live without sin this is how Paul said but what we can do is when we fall into sin we have to be quick in getting things right. Go to our Heavenly Father and apologise and ask Him self-control.

God brought Jesus back from the dead. He provided the way for you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. When we realize how deeply our sin grieves the heart of God and how desperately we need a Savior, we are ready to receive God's offer of salvation. To admit we are sinners means turning away from our sin and selfishness and turning to follow Jesus. The Bible word for this is "repentance" - to change our thinking about how grievous sin is, so our thinking is in line with God's.
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
Phenomenon of evil in the human heart Evil is a sin, it is a force in nature that presides over, and gives rise to wickedness and corruption. Some may think of evil as a separation from God and usually can be personified by the form of Satan. Phenomenon of evil can exist in many forms that can be hidden within ourselves and others. In the short story "Young Goodman Brown, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Hawthorne writes about a man whose faith cannot save him from the evil that lies around him and others. In "The Cask of Amontillado" Edgar Allen Poe illustrates that evil can be revealed through revenge, and it only brings malice and cruelty to this world.
He illuminates how people should act and how they should not act. Individuals should segregate themselves from the unholy people to secure a firm relationship with god himself.

The greatest news the world has ever heard is the Gospel. In fact, the word ‘Gospel’ means good news and this is not any good news, but the good news about Jesus Christ (Strauss 26). What is more, the early church adapted the word Gospel from the Greek word Euangelion, which was used to announce the victory of the emperor or the birth of his son (Strauss 26). Indeed the church had a victory to share about the birth of a son—Jesus who overcame death on the cross and through his resurrection from the dead. Eventually, the story of Jesus’ life, ministry and teaching was written down so that future generation would know this good news and therefore put faith in God and trust his provision of salvation through the gift of his son.

Virgil is a metaphor of Jesus who comes to rescue us from the dark place of sin and damnation to a life of victory in him. God was moved with compassion for mankind and sent his son Jesus to die for the sins of the world. Contrary to the way the world views heroism Dante displays heroic behavior when he realized that despite his own sense of unworthiness he needed God to be victorious. The Christian view of heroism is unlike the classical view because a depend totally on God to deliver and rescue us from our circumstances and sin. The Bible says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, New International Version).” Dante’s expression is that despite our sinful ways God is willing and able to deliver us.
Jesus was believed to be the Messiah that the people of Israel wanted to free them from slavery. The textbook says, “This coming deliverer was referred to as the Messiah, which means "anointed one." Messiah is the Hebrew term that is the basis for the term Christ, as in Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, kings were anointed. When the New Testament refers to Jesus as Christ, it is not referring to Jesus’ surname but to Jesus’ title as messiah, as king.” (Diffey, 2015)Jesus was believed to be the Son within the Holy Trinity: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

10:7-8), Jesus (Luke 9-18), and Paul (1Th. 3:1).” Consequently, Jacob further states who he was wrestling. In verses 30 states, “Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” Moreover, Finis Dake goes on to give assurance that Jacob was definitely wrestling with God. He mentioned, “Jacob recognize Him as the Blesser (26), because the sinew shrank miraculously (25), God Himself acknowledged Jacob had prevailed against Him (28), the blessing upon Jacob was one which God alone could bestow (28-30), Jacob claimed he had seen God’s face (30), and Jacob claimed salvation by this experience (30). This encounter that Jacob had with God, changed his life, and it is a testament to us
Whenever a child of God is going through a hard time, they look through the book of Job for comfort and peace. Why is that? We know the Scriptures in whole are for our comfort, but why is Job especially a passage we turn to? Job was a God-fearing man who was given trial after trial, yet never cursed God or turned away from Him. He trusted in Him, and we should be like Job in this fact.
Not only is it possible to sin against others, but also against ourselves. Sin can be present in the forms of greed, envy, murder, deceit, malice, adultery, or numerous others. Historically, human relationships are continuously struggling because of our sins against one another.

It is stated in the book of Mark (12:31), man should love his neighbor as himself.
