The servant of the Lord Paul show us his commitment with work of God to the men’s of Athens. Because it’s not easy to turn someone to Christ from this corrupted world with idols. This passage gives us a challenge to us as Christians to preach the good news of Christ every day, everywhere and helps though saying I will repent tomorrow no one about next day only Christ.
3:16-17). Baxter correctly highlighted the primary duty of minister in correcting those disobedience or rebellious flock – “To bring your people to submit to this course of private catechizing or instruction; for, if they will not come to you, or allow you to come to them, what good can they receive?” However, when we look at today’s congregation, especially old believers, their mindset had changed – though at the beginning of salvation, they humbly followed all the minister’s instructions diligently for their soul’s healing, but after sometimes, they hardened their heart to any kind of pastoral treatment as though they are superior than their shepherd. They will not come to us and will not allow us to come to
The sinful heart will turn away from the living God and the heart will be hardened. So, we need to encourage one another daily to turn back to God. Therefore, others are necessary for personal growth in the gospel. That is also how Hebrew 3:12-13 tells
1) The Great Awakening originated from a man named Jonathan Edwards who wrote the famous sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” This sermon preached that everyone was capable of salvation. Religion started to become a more personal experience and more and more people stopped going to church. When "old lights," didn't approve of the personal spirituality that the Great Awakening was adjuring to, many members of Congregational and Presbyterian denominations simply left for other churches.

Okonkwo, being once one of their leaders, knew that he had taught the clan better, especially the men. He guided the men of Umuofia to fight, to unite with one another, and to not be soft like women. Okonkwo
As I was writing this response more and more things were bursting into my head of things that I could write about, that made me feel something. This is one of the things I liked so much about this book. It made me think and theorise. ‘What would happen if…’ ‘Could this really be possible…’ ‘Could our society really resemble one like described in the book?’ Ray Bradbury did an excellent job of conveying his message, so much so that I think it should be mandatory to read this book.

As an overseer Equiano discovers the horrible treatment the slaves are faced with and this disgusts him. As years had gone by Equiano continued to rely on his newfound faith in God to guide him through the difficult situations he had been facing. His religious faith had played an important role on his views of slavery and why he believed it was wrong.
Theoretical Framework In this research, I adopt the definition and study done by Christina Maslach and her collegue (Maslach & Jackson, 1981). They define the burnout as work-related phenomenon which causes the continuous mismatch between a person and their environment. The pastors do not choose the career as pastors but it was the “call of God” that has brought them to that vocation. The pastors are trained to teach, preach and interpret the scripture yet they lack the training on the interpersonal skills as well as organizational skills to cope with the social demands.
Regarding the impact that others in a meeting have on his decision making process, it is given to understand that he desires to know the heart and the motives behind the individual speaking before moving forward with any suggestions made. His concerns regarding this issue are that motives may be proliferated by traditionalists, resistant to change or by those seeking vain-glory, taking on many forms. In matters of job security, this pastor remains open to serve the Lord where He wants him to serve. As he said, “At the end of the day, God has not called us to be employed, but to be faithful.” Ultimately, this pastor in many ways still seeks to attain “a balanced view on all issues,” desiring to make educated decisions.
He kept wanting to blame others for his mistakes, and why he ended up in jail. Mainly, he wanted to put all of the blame on Jesus. He then dealt with issues of questioning his faith and went on to better himself and his understanding of faith and the different types.

The world saw him as a treat, marching protest leader, an activist, representative, and a civil rights leader. With a different insight of how the social structure and equality should be brought to justice for all. However, some of his greatest messages, achievements, and heroic stands were not preached from the mountaintop before millions in Washington, D.C. Instead days before I walked into his church looking for the civil rights leader, but I got a preacher. A preacher who just been assassinated in 1968, he had a sermon that reminded people that color should not be a factor in human life.
This song relates to chapter nine because things could have got done if you weren 't just sitting there looking at the stars. I think his worst part was not being with Daisy, and watching her get married to Tom. Then, another reason maybe that he was lost because there is a separation between them.

Basically, I learned that it is crucial to take audacious steps when we see people in vulnerable situations. Additionally, it is very important for me to lead others by example, have a positive attitude even amid intense circumstances, work as a team, listen to others’ suggestions, articulate my vision to the team members, and encourage others. In addition, I learned that a leadership role has to be Christ centered and it needs to be a grace driven effort in lieu of self-seeking success. My previous experiences helped me to believe that a community of believers working together with servant-heart mindset can, definitely, transform the vulnerable societies.
