Unfortunately, everyone continued to sin, but God forgave time and time again, and always created a new covenant with them. God wanted his people to be happy forever, he wanted to erase the sin of the first human beings and all who came after them. This is God’s plan of salvation, and the path he walks with us is called salvation history. Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, God made a new and promising covenant with his people that from that moment on, it
God is concerned about the well-being and interest of the peoples. So we are doing as Christ did. Reflecting on my life allows me to see there is no difference in my value and another because God created us all. The seven spheres in my opinion the first steps in a process for me to share a love and serve all people on the earth. As a disciple of God and a follower, I am called to love all nations, in spite of their gender orientation, faith, or their way of life.
“Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou introduces the value of respect in a beautifully displayed poem. “A Good Man” and “Still I Rise” are excellent pieces of literature that exemplify the values of empowerment and respect. “A Good Man” demonstrates empowerment constantly throughout the novel. For example, Mark Shriver’s father, Sargent Shriver, and his faith empowered him all throughout his life. With his faith, he empowered his family to attend Church weekly.
“The Parable of the Sower” and other related parables in Mark 4 explain how one should listen to the word of God and treat others. Jesus says, “And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit,” (Mark 4) in order to emphasize how the people who accept and understand the word of God and live by it will be saved. Other texts such as Matthew 5-7, emphasize obedience in thought and deed to God. In this text, Jesus interpreted the Ten Commandments in a new way, telling his followers how they should act in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. He said, “Whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5).
 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,  and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, Paul was chosen by God. His Job was to bring what God had shown him and make it known to everyone. I believe that Paul would reflect on his past and remember that he was only deserving of God’s wrath. He believes that he was not wordy to be a Child of God, and he was just grateful that he was save, but more grateful to be called and apostle. We are taught that Apostle speaks for God so when we read the book of Ephesians we are reading God’s words.
His passage reveals that he believed that Christ would return soon, that even without the women, the disciples would have found Jesus alive. By using foreshadowing, Mark wanted the reader to focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus, and used the gospel to connect and differentiate between the other evangelists. Mark concludes his gospel on a
All our verbal and nonverbal naming should serve God and neighbor.” (P. 29) Verbal and nonverbal should always serve God and the people we influence. “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues” (Proverbs 17:28). Speech equips people “to listen and learn, conduct trade, worship, debate the issues of the day and communicate” (P.12) together. Servant speaking is a calling for all Christians to speak life to others, and share God’s word. They are to be faithful and serve their audiences (in a Biblical sense), have patience when speaking and use
In our daily lives, we also need to pray and fast to open the portal for the spiritual growth and to be blessed with God’s grace. God requires our obedience Esther’s obedience toward God saved the Jewish people from genocide. Although she was afraid of the consequence of persuading the king to stop Haman’s plan of killing the Jewish people, she still approached the king and by acting in the obedience, she was able to save her nation and her people. Likewise, Christians must obey to God because our obedience brings us the most suitable result for us. God uses everything and everyone to accomplish his divine
We can trust that we are now saved from an eternal death because Jesus has proved He is who He says He is, and He can do what he promises to do. He said He would defeat death and did, humanity is freed from sin. God is loving and all powerful, though many non-Christians do not see Him this way. The truth is that Jesus’ suffering, the Crucifixion, is God’s way of still being loving but also taking care of a major issue. He suffers so that we can see him again in Heaven.
Neither does anybody else, okay? We 're all just winging it, you know? The good news is, you 're feeling stuff. And you 've got to hold on to that.” Mason, and everyone around him, goes through life hoping that maybe if they search enough they can find lasting happiness, or leave an impact on the world. However, in Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gives the human race His final command, ““Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The bible is the simple answer. Colossians 3:12 proclaims “Therefore, as God 's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience,” And Ephesians 2:7 notifies us with the words “in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus,” proving grace should function as a daily part of life. Colossians 3:19 proclaims “Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them,” and 1 Peter 3:7 follows that up with “Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers,” Southern people preaches this verse constantly. A big part of the south is learning to honor your parents. Proverbs 22:23 demands “For the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life,” while Exodus 20:12 reiterates, but in terms of fathers “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Clearly these are charms are based off the
Teach him to sell his talents and brains to the highest bidder but never to put a price tag on his heart and soul.…. let him have the patient to be brave. Teach him to have sublime faith in himself, because then he will always have sublime faith in mankind, (and) in GOD.” This story, I think is true to all parents who are here present and to all the parents in the world. You may not have written to you children’s teachers; however, I believe you share the same sentiment as President Lincoln. You all desire to see your children being taught the right Moral Values and Christian virtues which are invaluable riches and treasures compared to being wealthy and
The world is a wonderful place and in Romans 1:20, "For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse" (NIV). Paul wrote this passage to help facilitate to Christians that God is all powerful and we are able to see that every day. Christians must realize the God is never abandon us and that he is always around, if we are in need of Him. This is apparent from the beginning of the Bible in Genesis. Human Identity: Identity was conveyed by Paul throughout the Book of Romans, where he explained that mankind should have the identity that reflected God.
I’ve decided to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ without fear, to promote the power and the glory of God among us, and to live a Christian life with love, joy and peace. Each of us possesses our own way of positively affecting the world we live in and it is a necessity that we contribute in making it a better place. Whatever you can do…..Do it! “Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.” Chief Sitting Bull – Hunkpapa Lakota Holy
