What it means to worship in the Christian faith and what it does to uplift them spiritually What is worship? Worship is giving worth to someone or something, genuine worship is a wholehearted expression of wonder, adoration, love, admiration, celebration, and fascination. It is a great feeling that occurs in your soul as you start to worship God for his love and appreciate him for all he has done. Most Christians today do not know the relevance of worship, true worship is more than singing, lifting hands, bowing heads, closing eyes, and smiling towards heaven. Worship is what connects the physical to the spiritual.
He has revealed our purpose. A plan for our lives revealed “In Christ.” 2. Example- Organizations that succeed understand their purpose and mission. Same is true for those “In Christ.” 3.

The Nicene Creed indicates that Jesus is begotten of God and that he was there before everything else was formed. Such perception is the position of my church since we believe that Christ is the son of God as he used to refer to himself in the scripture. My church’s adherence to Nicene orthodoxy has enhanced the message of salvation since it makes people to understand that Christ who is our savior understands our human weakness since he also bears the nature of man. Moreover, it draws people closer to Jesus and the salvation of God through the understanding that despite him being God, he took the incarnate form to save us. Such alignment makes it easy to understand the relationship between God and human beings as well as the love that God had for the world to an extent of giving His only begotten son to die for us.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves” this verse also says that you are to be humble and do everything with a kind heart. It also says that you should be valuing others more than you are valuing yourself. Psalm 37:5 reads “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this”. This verse states that if we trust in God, he will help us do what is difficult in our lives. God has used many different people to be leaders.

Brueggemann explains inherency as the way christianity has developed and the structure over time. Christians have an image whereas believing, trusting, and having faith in Him will lead living their life as God expects them to and blessings will overflow. God is the Holy Spirit, everlasting
In Romans 8:28 it said, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” In Isaiah 41:10 it said “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” I could feel God’s voice-- soft and pleasant. It seemed like God was soothing me with His words. God surely solved my life
Finally, “all agree that the Bible promises success in this process of struggling against personal sin, through the power of the Holy Spirit” (pp.7-8). The Wesleyan Way John Wesley, who is the father of the Christian Methodist churches, and his followers are well known for their concern for an ethical faith. His understanding of the sanctification was based on the Reformation and
Author and theologian Michael Morris suggests that the three main reasons to obey God is faith, hope and love (Morris). He explains in his article, Six Reason to Obey God, that with faith “we believe that God’s commands are for our own good,” with joy we have the pleasure “of knowing God forever, [with other] rewards in addition to eternal joy,” and with love “we cannot help but be thankful and want to please [God]” (Morris). Essentially, Obedience is loving God enough to trust that his intentions are always pure and well, and such obedience is necessary during times of
Will we choose the evil approach and take out our frustration on those who mistreat us? Will we choose the "spiritually neutral" approach to ignore them and hope things improve? Will we choose the godly approach to pray for them and show love to them that Jesus taught in Matthew 5:44? How does praying for those who mistreat us fulfill our need for consistency and our godly desire for justice? When we pray for them and treat them with love, we are not ignoring our desire for justice, we are honoring and rejoicing in what is most important in the situation: God 's will.
The reoccurring themes throughout Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians that I have depicted are; God’s unwavering forgiveness, God’s unconditional love, the mystery of God, being saved by grace through faith, and to build people up; not tear them down. In Ephesians, Paul entails that encountering the love of God will immerse us completely with all the wholeness of God. If we are not encountering the completeness of God in our everyday lives, then we are not acquiring God’s love in its entirety. The unconditional overflowing love of God is essential. Displayed through actions are also a byproduct of love.
In Romans 12:15, Paul writes that believers should “rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep”. This verse demonstrates God’s idea of empathy- which is that we not only recognize what others are feeling but also feel the same and can relate to them in what they are experiencing. Personally, I have found that the more I learn about what God has done for me- the more I can relate to others the way that scripture asks me as a Christian to. Sacrifice is another key in demonstrating empathy because doing something for others always takes some sort of sacrifice and empathy is something that we share with others for others well being. I have chosen to demonstrate sacrifice in my day to day life by not only making myself available to others who I sometimes do or do not know but also by setting aside money when I get my checks for times when I am led to give or spend time with someone.
