Being public and doing Public Theology is thus vital because it is obedient and a living witness to the goodness and loving-kindness of our Lord who became flesh for us and for our salvation. Conclusion: Christian faith is very personal but not private. It is both individual and communal. It transforms both human beings and humanly created structures and systems (culture is a man-made system). I think it is very important that a Christian should first read his/her culture in the light of the Bible.
The least of my cares turned out to be the greatest. In light of these experiences, I have grafted my personal and professional goals to my spiritual goal of service through ministry as a military chaplain. While I have the desire to serve, I also realize I need the professional training to equip me to handle the challenges in specialized ministry settings like the military. A Master’s of Divinity (M.Div.) is the next step toward reaching that goal.
Reformed theologians learned, from Romans 8:29, that Christ-likeness is the purpose of choosing people; and it is not merely one of the suggestions to be Christ likeness people, but it is command to become like one. Furthermore, they have found that sanctification, which is ascribed to all three persons of the Trinity, is both the work of God and the responsibility of His people. What is important is that sanctification is not something that people can get by human efforts, but it is God’s divine gift. Moreover, based on Philippians 2:12-13, reformed theologians believed that sanctification is continual
This means that Scripture gives us everything that we need in order to be obedient to God. It teaches us truths about God, salvation, and everything of eternal significance. DeYoung claims that one reason this doctrine is so important is because Jesus is often identified as the Logos or Word (John 1). God speaks though Jesus because he is “God’s full and final revelation of himself (50).” This is a truth that is deeply woven into Scripture and shows us the importance of Scripture in pointing man to God. The doctrine of sufficiency also means that no one should take away or add to scripture.
Finally wisdom, the older I get the more I ask for wisdom to guide my thoughts and to give proper advice to my family and those around me. I express all these personal values through my day to day interactions with people. I take the time to help those that are struggling with personal problems. That’s why faith is the start of my values and all other things need to align with my faith in God. This is my leadership philosophy that comes from an imperfect man with a servant’s heart, who battles past demons through discipline, and obtaining
Pursuing the Lost As I reflect on my desire to be a part of a Multicultural Urban Ministry, I realized that I want to leave a legacy of passion on pursuing God. A pursuit that is so prevalent, that it is known without it being spoken. In Deuteronomy 4, we are reminded of the blessings that are promised to us through the obedience of our ancestors. Moses relays careful instructions to us on how to build the foundational stepping-stones during our pursuit to draw near to God and even reflects on his own disobedience to detour us from losing our focus on how to receive the promise given to our ancestors. This passage in the Bible is also a reminder that the generations that follow us, will look to us as the example on how to pursue God and that the promise is to also be received by the future generations.
This provides important continuity between Old Testament covenantal commands, for instance, the cultural mandate in Gn 1:28 and Christian mission in the New Testament era. Jesus declared that he had not come to abolish the law and the prophets, but to fulfill them (Mt 5:17). Christian discipleship ethics are based on the call to righteousness found in the law and the prophets: “be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Mt 5:48 and Lev 19:2). Jesus’ instructions to his disciples to “teach everything I have commanded” is foundational to the concept of making future disciples, and therefore important for understanding how evangelism and social justice are to be integrated in mission. It is helpful to see the five discourses in the gospel of Matthew as a complete summary of Jesus’
Leadership Philosophy & Teaching Statement I deliver this personal leadership philosophy & Teaching statement to you. This is nothing but my personal belief system and ethics about works & teaching.

So, in this way you can help me to become a better leader & teacher.
Even if our wedding was conducted in Church, we must decide to cleave or else no blessings at all will occur in our marriage. Our vows must be for life and to do this, we must have a good relationship with God individually at our home. It is also true that, “The Bible gives us guidance on everything from A to Z, a fact graphically illustrated by Psalms 119, which features twenty-two sections beginning with the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabets. The section shows us the place of the law of God in a believer’s life” (Haddon 2000: 66). I have to quote this author again because what he wrote is completely true.
