Incarnational Union soteriology conveys the holy work of our savior, Jesus Christ, through him becoming human to save the world from sin. God the Father begot the Son and then sent him to save the Lord 's people from themselves. The glorious Son had to become human, so that all humans could become God and be in eternal Union with the Trinity. He also had to die for our sins to show obedience to God, thus setting an example for all. Jesus is the ultimate example of a person, human and divine because as the following states, "There is no greater love than to lay down one 's life for one 's friends," (John 15:13, New Living Translation).
I think that Mary Rowlandson 's accounts did support Puritan beliefs. She quotes many scriptures throughout the reading. Among these is 2 Corinthians 12:9, which reads "And he said unto me, my Grace is sufficient for thee"(Perkins and Perkins, 120). This supports Puritan belief because their main goal was to save corrupted believers and non-believers. This scripture assures a person that his/her sins are taken care of by God 's Grace, and that encourages them to be saved and convert.
Hawthorne portrayed Dimmesdale ,a combine of sinner and saint, change by his hidden to show people the power of hidden sin. Hawthorne describe Dimmesdale as a young faithful prayer, that came to the new world and to save the people. In the eyes of the people, he is pointed by God as a saver and he will use his knowledge to serve people. In the eyes of the church, Dimmesdale’s knowledge is better than any priest in the town, as a reason of that, Dimmesdale earned the supreme
Even though I, and many others, hate to think about what our Savior went through, I believe it is important. To have knowledge on what Jesus went through for us shows the amount of love He has bestowed upon us. I am so thankful that He would give His perfect life for us sinners whose righteousness is as filthy rags. The talk about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was prophesied all the way back to Old Testament days. God let people know that there would be a Savior that would come, and He would save us from our sins.
In John 13, Jesus teaches his various ways of love. From the start of washing His disciple’s feet, to the end telling His disciples to love one another. His teaching of equality in verse sixteen explains that one person may not be greater than the other regardless of title, proves that love should remain as love. One person cannot love or be blessed more than the other, for that brings envy and superiority and that is where love is lost. Jesus teaches us His way of love through the love of one another so that we show that we are His.
Therefore, in order to live a life like Jesus we must suffer too. Through our suffering we become closer to God and He, in turns, relieves us of our suffering through showing us meaning. Jesus died for us, that was his meaning. No one wants to die for nothing. We all want to leave something behind, a legacy if you will.
The best way to be that light is to pray the God through us is glorified. All too often we pray as a selfish child, God give me this or give me that. I have my pastor say that God is not our genie in the sky, but He is our loving and faithful Heavenly Father. In Matthew 7:11 (KJV) “…how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” God wants to give His children good gifts and He wants them to be mature enough to pray for the glory of the Heavenly Father. God love us with a love so strong that we cannot
She wore her navy blue dress with collars the shade of white organdy, and her collars and cuffs were trimmed with lace. She decided to dress this way so that if her and her family were in an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once she was a lady. This is ironic as you finish the entire story because the family was in an
Knowing all that matters is faith working through love is the most fulfilling, freeing promise from God. Paul tells us how all we need to worry about is faith. Forget substituting circumcision into the salvation equation because you are either all in or all out for Jesus. If we choose to live by the flesh, we will go to hell, but if we live by the spirit, we will inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21). This promise alone is enough to change the lives of the people of Galatia, but also everyone else who is able to hear Paul’s
The corrupted man that is John Proctor is an ideal personification of the Christian concept that salvation and forgiveness of sin is the guiding light of mankind, and will save even those who rebuke God’s word in the name of repenting their actions. For even as the case of John Proctor, God loves all, and God forgives
