How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.
Also, the word beautiful or beauty is used many times in Bible when referring to God’s work and his actions. In some scripture like in Psalm 149:4 where the Bible says “For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation”. The word beauty here means to make perfect and to fix all the imperfections. So therefore by referring to the girls as “beautiful” it has the connotation of the word in the Bible which puts these girls in a perfect
We are called to be Christ-like and much of Christ’s ministry in the New Testament involves healing others physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Jesus met the needs of the people that he encountered, and that is what Christian nurses are called to do as well. Christian nurses should also reflect the love that God has given us. God calls us to love Him and to love and serve others. Related Book: The Glass Castle
“I do,” Amara confirmed, allowing everyone to breathe once more. “And Equius, do you take Amara to be your lawfully wedded wife? By making this commitment, you are joining in the covenant of marriage. Do you promise to honour her in love, to be sensitive to her needs, to comfort her in difficulty, and to put your full and complete trust in her, so long as you both shall live?” the priest questioned “I do,” Equius stated, no hesitation required. “Very
The water is a very important symbol of new life of an individual into Christianity. The recitation of promises by the parents symbolizes their responsibility towards the upbringing of the children into Christian faith. Marking of the infant with the sign of the cross symbolizes the warm welcome that is extended to the child into the new faith. Clothing with white garment symbolizes purity for the sins of the individual are forgiven.

Once married, it was fresh, clean and pure the way it was meant to be in God’s eyes. He demonstrates that the union is forever and cannot be undone by any means and that the couple and God are united forever. The Puritans believed that marriage was acknowledged and uplifted by God and that God did not expect for men to be alone, but should have a companion to live with, to learn from and to help build the church by having children. The Puritans thought marriage should be loving and happy and was viewed as a contract between two people who would agree to love each other, instead of an act accepted by the
This rite of passage, from a single person to a married couple, or neophyte, differs from culture to culture. From the Christian viewpoint, “By the time a young Christian is ready to marry, he or she will believe that marriage is the joining of two people in a faithful and loving relationship.” ((n.a.)) From my exegetics opinion, marriage is a union that is shared by two people for the betterment of themselves and enrichment through a cooperative effort. The man or woman behaves in a manner that is primarily self-benefiting. Having established themselves in a social, and economic, status that is according to their own goals and
The New Testament gives a definition of love, shows where love comes from, how to love others, how the Father loves us, and how we love the Father. The New Testament Bible shows the definition of love. When the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth he gave a definition of what love should be, he says: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
I will humbly suggest the following. We should understand, appreciate and give thanks to God for the many blessings, in whatever form, he has bestowed upon us. We should realize that opportunities, however abundant, will be of no consequence if we fail to make use of them. We need to be mindful of the fact that being surrounded by godly people or being in church regularly or having Christian parents or relatives will not save us. Only by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour and having faith in his redeeming work on the cross of Calvary will guarantee our salvation.
