Our old man refused to follow the will of God, but our new hearts chases after the will of God. The Lord has made it possible for us to follow Him, by giving us the heart of Jesus, which loves to do the will of the Father. Those who are saved live their lives in Jesus. His Spirit abides in them so that He may help them behave like Jesus. Their strength is in the Holy Spirit, who has come to establish the dominion of God in their lives.
Her miscommunication of feelings led to secrecy and loss of trust. She does so by keeping personal thoughts to herself, writing secrets in her diary, and ignoring her problems with Art. Throughout her life, Ruth is always picked on by LuLing. LuLing often points out Ruth’s flaws and never congratulates
AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO SIN AGAINST US And forgive us our trespasses (debts), as we forgive (our debtors) those who sin against us. -Matthew 6:12 Overlooking a transgression is to look beyond the transgression whether big or small, but to be frank with you it is not all that easy. When it concerns others and we are asking them to forgive the wrong done to them, we try to appeal to them with Scriptures, convicting and convincing them to consider the effects of unforgiving, if they choose not to forgive. But when the ball is on side, we calculate and reason all tangible arguments and choose not to forgive them. Well, it is always easier said than done, sometimes we think it’s easier to tell somebody to forgive his offender just like that, because
Philosopher: What happens if you lack moral strength? Churchgoer: Someone who has weak morals doesn’t feel remorse when they do wrong. A lack of moral strength also makes a person more likely to act immorally. Philosopher: Should a person feel guilty for doing wrong? Churchgoer:
One of McCloskey’s first arguments against God’s existence is to discredit proofs. He believes that because that one can not use proofs as a secure basis for their religious beliefs, and as a result of this, they cannot be used to prove God’s existence. In his presentation, Foreman states that he does not want to use the word proof, since he believes that it implicates certainty, and that these arguments do not give hundred percent certainty that God exists. Although these arguments do not completely prove that God exists, they are still extremely valuable for theists’ arguments. Unfortunately, due to their inability to provide evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that God exists, Atheists are able to present a defeater that would prove these arguments false.
But, I do know that there would be times that I would probably be very tempted to directly confront someone for their sin, especially if their sin is hurting someone else. An example of this would be a person that in repeatedly unfaithful to their significant other, who is trying to hold the relationship together. I think I would be very direct with this client. Their sin is thoughtless, uncaring and selfish. At this point, I don’t think that the client is going worried about their unfaithfulness being wrong.
Along with this concept, is the idea portrayed in Ephesians 5:1 that believers are to be imitators of God, because they are His children. This calls for the action of honoring the heavenly Father as well. I John 3:10 states, “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth his brother.” Obedience and love to other adopted sons of God is key to showing honor to the Father (Grudem
The fact that mission is not a word used in the New Testament forces one to proceed with some humility. However, the concept of sending, which lies behind the word mission, is certainly biblical. Mission is an all-encompassing term reflecting the whole redemptive purpose of God. The church’s mission is derivative and has been described as that of being “sent” (as pilgrim, stranger, witness, prophet, servant, salt, light, etc.) by God into this world”.
In the same line of thought Hebblethwaite (1987:22) rightly asserts that “to believe in God incarnate, then is to believe that God has chosen this way to make himself known and drawing us to himself”. Consequently, man can only come in contact with God the Father through the incarnated Son who is the true revelation of the Father . In this way, God communicate to us something of Himself so that we can know him and get into relationship with Him and such knowledge causes us to put faith in him, as Torrance (2008:37) would say “Christian faith starts with the Knowledge of God in Jesus Christ”. Therefore, from this consideration we can now assert that incarnation is part of God’s revelation acts which carries out the purpose of atoning man’s sin to reconcile him back to the
Many people do not know this reality, and those who are aware of it refuse to listen to the counsel of the word of God, which instructs them to shy away from all forms of unrighteousness. Those who are born again have been born by a righteous Father, who expects them to abide in His righteousness. Fornication and any sexual sins belong to the world. They are the sins of those who are still slaves to the devil. Let no one who is called by the name of the Lord be involved in any unrighteousness
