Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16. Paul knew it was the only way of salvation, the one power of God that was effective in forgiving and chaing man and bring them at least to heaven.Now we can see here Paul wrote this letter, the main idea what He wrote was to show what salvation means in the book of Romans. It includes justification, peace with God a new Holy life and glorification. The only power to accomplish all this is the gospel of Christ. Salvation is offered through faith in Jesus, the Messiah, as we can see in the book of Romans 3:21-23; 10:9, through in Jesus we believe that He is the representative of the righteous by His faith, He brought internal life and He brought
So God created man to be with Him, in His presence and to reach this happiness in the end of his life. But sometimes God allows suffering to test our faith in Him. For example in the Book of Genesis, Abraham is tested for his faith, by being asked to sacrifice Isaac his only son. Pope John Paul says “Suffering, in fact, is always a trial-at times a very hard one-to which humanity is subjected.” But sufferings are a very effective way for one to discover of himself and help to realize and to transform human being in his own existence here on earth. “It is suffering, more than anything else, which clears the way for the grace which transforms human souls.
The Old Testament, as opposed to the New Testament, shows many different sides of God. God is characterized as challenging, spiteful, or even vengeful in some of the stories of the Old Testament. Instead of teaching the concepts of love and forgiveness, the Old Testament emphasizes sacrifice and how it is required to live a life of faith. The Pentateuch introduces the covenants made between God and certain individuals in which, through fulfilling the tasks that God asks of them, they are granted His grace. God used these covenants, promises to His people, to hold mankind accountable for their own use of free will.
Likewise, Bible’s one of the essential theme and the message is all about atonement, that God has given a means to mankind to return into peaceful connection with, that is apparent everywhere in Scriptures. The other kind of explanation will be, atonement is to languish the punishment over sins, in this manner expelling the impacts of sin from the ashamed and enabling him or her to be reunited to God. Jesus Christ is the one, adequate of completing the Atonement for all humanity. As a result of His Atonement, all individuals will be restored from sin and
and of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace." 2 Timothy 1:6-9a Paul and the elders of the church had laid hands on Timothy and prayed over him to ordain him into ministry. Paul instructs Timothy to "fan into flame the gift of God" to encourage him to look to God for guidance so that he can use his gift as God intended him to and to draw strength, power, love and self-discipline that can only come from God.
The Bible explicitly affirms that of all that God created, He highly favored humans to be perfectly created in His image and likeness; and having such great intrinsic knowledge, strength, and ability; God blessed and entrusted them to govern and enrich His creations. Distinctively, with God at the very center of the life and existence of His creations, the Bible remarkably picture how they existed together as a holy community to fulfill God’s righteous purposes, in creating the world for His praise and greater glory. Regrettably, the beautiful relationship that God and humans intimately shared together had been disrupted when the insidious sin managed to permeate human minds that made them capable of thinking evil and behaving selfishly disobeying
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. God promised Abraham that He would bless him, and bless all the nations through him. He also promised Abraham land due to his obedience and faith in God. When Abraham obeyed and trusted God, he was credited with righteousness and faith, and consequently delivered from sin by the Lord (Gen
But Bible indicates although Abraham family also had in idol worshiper he decided to follow the true God. And God chose him,called him as the father of many nations. The writer ponting out here if there is any fear to God that is only one God who can destroy all things because He is the honour of all
This shows that because God has no darkness in Him, ultimately, He is perfect. John the Apostle writes how whoever loves his brother abides in the light. This is important because the goal as a Christian is to become more like Christ, so if we love others we abide in Christ. The more we love our brothers, the more we become like Christ. In 1 John 3, it talks about how we should act as children of God.
For this reason, ____________________________________________ The New Covenant relationship between God and Israel is inevitable because God made a covenant commitment to the patriarchs and it is not His nature to change His promises and to deny those He has chosen to bless their blessings! ________________________________________________________ Hence, the Apostle Paul clarified, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance or irrevocable! (Romans 11:29) ” Thus, the New Covenant is the development of the Abrahamic covenant! God promised Abraham that in him shall all the families of the earth be blessed. This declaration was actually a promise of a son – Jesus Christ (a special blessing) by whom all the families of the earth would be blessed through the gift of salvation that would be made possible by His sacrificial death on the
