I feel led to pray so would you like to pray with me? Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light. Jesus has commanded me to love him with my whole heart and he has commanded me to love my neighbors as myself. Jesus also commanded me to go out into the world and win the people to come to Christ. Again, I love the Lord and I am willing to do his will no matter how hard it gets.
I am not suggesting revolting or secretive ways, But I believe witnessing through action is just as important as witnessing through professing one’s belief. In Matthew 5:16, it states, “in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NIV). Christian educator’s classroom should embody principles that are reflective of a Christian worldview to implement a biblical worldview to support a Christian philosophy in education in a practical application. We must instill themes like love, wholeness, and responsibility of knowledge. Graham states, “biblical teachings concerning love, wholeness, and responsibility, as well as our experience of them in Christ, must be brought to bear on our studies and research” (Graham, 2009, 24).
He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
Furthermore, besides fear of punishment, Christians have a higher motivation. Consider 1 John 4:19: “We love him because he first loved us”(NKJV) and Matthew 25:40: “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me”(NKJV). We should love others not out of duty to God, but out of love and thankfulness for everything he has done for
Gal.6:9 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. Ps. 118:21 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Rom. 5:1 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26, 4. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10 5. Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
He made it that all of our sins are forgiven and he could have easily just left us. But he didn’t, he loved us so much that he would be willing to die for us. Have you ever had a really bad day and nothing seems to go your way? Want someone to talk to? This is why I love Jesus.
And, as God’s creations, the angels are unwilling to suffer for the sins of another. The Son, however, jumps at the chance. This is by all means a fatherly tactic. Just as a human father may vaguely refer to a cookie he doesn’t want that he knows his son will ask for, God places a task in from of his ‘children’ that He knows the Son will volunteer to take. Being God, He knows exactly who will make the sacrifice, who will offer their service.
through message of love and kindness. It is the church main reason why their behavior of this sort is sown. The church must seek to bear fruit of love and compassion in the lives of those losing faith in God. Faith is important and powerful in every unexpected situation in anyone’s life here on earth. If the church present itself unrelated to losing faith, how might a person be reach that has lost faith?
If the god is taking revenge he should do it only on evil beings, Why the hardship to innocents, harmless and those who do good and are good also? If he is that powerful why can’t he do something about the problem of evil? Well this is a tough question that I still struggle with for an answer. I have realised that the evil is in every one, you and me and indeed everyone. May he has to be very radical like destroy one and all.
