Michelle said she came up with a mission statement about her life: “Give, because God has given me a heart to love Him and to love others.” I asked Michelle how she thought about this mission statement now that she has had time to think about it, and she said that is exactly what she wants to do in life, serve others; that is what makes her happy.

The audience is meant to want to convert for themselves, but also their lost loved ones who did not get the same chance. Jonathan Edwards's "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" argues that everyone was out of God's favor and they needed to return to a righteous path. The sermon is given in his famous "fire and brimstone" style, as many other sermons of the time period. He utilizes imagery, logical, and emotional appeals in order to encourage people to convert to
Personally, I prefer prayers of affirmation because no matter what, God’s will will be what happens.

In recent years, I have had opportunities to preach and learn within this field. There are many ways in which I could approach the ministry, from theological training, to about myself being asked by a church to become the minister. I felt confident conducting the interview, which reaffirmed my sense of myself
This trend always accelerates in times when Faith is weakened and religion comes under attack. This allows the anti-Christian forces the opportunity to challenge church authority, ridicule their values and create open mistrust of the clergy. Rather than focus on unpopular decisions and the weakness of a few human representatives of the church, the faithful must always keep their eyes fixed on Christ himself. We should take comfort that when God offers such guiding principles; faith in him will provide the way. When people become poor in spirit and renounce or abandon their trust in their faith, they become subject to a loss of their own personal free will.
It’s no secret that everyone is created as imperfect human beings because ultimately, that is the cause of our messy lives. Since we are flawed human beings, were more susceptible to stray away from God and his plan for each and every one of us. As a result, we desperately need God’s love and mercy to steer us back on the path he has already paved for us. We all let emotions take the best of us weather that’s anger, frustration, or even regrets, but the key is to trust in God and let him take take full control of your life because you will uncover the greatest gift of his divine eternal grace.

First, BTB allows me to serve as a mentor, encouraging and aiding men who seek the same success I was desperate to find.
Jesus tells us in the context of the whole passage that all have perpetrated (sinned), and we shouldn 't be so hasty to cast a stone (judge/condemn) others before taking an introspective look at ourselves and where we fall short. To foster this spirituality for incarnationally serving those on the margins is to "choose the way of Jesus, laying aside all the earthly resources that give us power - in order to be present to those we love" (pg. 97). Doing this, we humble ourselves and serve people like Madu as friends, since the textbook answer won 't make the impact necessary for change, but living it out, showing love and bestowing friendship upon them will be the example and the relationship they need that will cause a deep transformative impact. However, we mustn 't become calloused to the evil actions in these ambiguous situations, if we do, then the loving-correction needed to move past perpetration may never be accomplished.
