When he became a Christian, he used his education to eagerly study the Bible. He wrote several Christian books. During his final years he wrote more books and opened a school for young adults. Amazingly, his legacy lives on today. From the time he was young until his work for the Reformation, Calvin had a stunning education.
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi. Through the course of his life, John Lewis experienced some key turning points that shaped him into becoming the determined and brave leader he was. Lewis was not alone during these major events as several people, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Jim Lawson, helped him during these times and expanded his knowledge. The trilogy March demonstrates some of these turning points in books one and two, those being his first bible, spiritual journey, the non-violent workshops, and arrests. John Lewis’ passion for preaching began at the age of four when his uncle gave him his first bible, which would have an enormous impact in his life.
In preparing for this sermon, I discovered that some folk refer to this Psalm as Luther’s Psalm, as in Martin Luther. After all, he did write a rather famous, and most popular hymn titled, ‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God’ in which Psalm 46 served as his inspiration. What I did not know was the historical context behind this great hymn.

I have maintained believing in my religion by performing many actions. For instance, I go to church every Sunday, and I like to volunteer helping teach little kids on Fridays. Additionally, I read the bible, and pray every morning and every night. These actions I have done helped me maintain my religion throughout middle school. My following personal value is keeping a healthy relationship with
I remembered doing one of Paul’s letters, 1st Timothy as a Bible study for one my class assignment at CFOT. 1st Timothy spoke about Grace, instruction on worship, leaders within the church and a good servant of Christ. I felt like 1st Timothy chapter three is a decent place to start. This book has the foundation and elements the Corps people needed to remind them of when they first fell in Love with the Lord. More so, if some of them did not know the Lord, it will help them to entrust their lives to the Lord.
In Particular, I began to notice that I am getting old enough to understand that I am all I got to look up to and I don’t want to set a bad image for myself. Also, my decisions are what I make them to be, no one can choose my actions for me, so I have to choose them wisely. Admittedly, I got back into the church and also going back and finish school to better myself and my education. However, now I open my eyes every day knowing I am going to have a good day with no negativity, I have my family back helping me but I let the friends go completely.

Seeing the finished product was rewarding; however, the real satisfaction came from the faces of the children who got to use the new court for the first time.
