Proverbs 20:5 tells us that intelligence enables everyone, believer and non-believer, to reach the deep waters of knowledge. "God so loved the world that he sent his only Son…" (Jn. 3: 16). Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn. 14: 6).
I have faith and belief that God is our savior for all of our sins. God is the creator of all things and we are living in his glory. I believe that I am on this earth for a reason and a purpose. My world view is that I believe in a greater power that is above all of us. My world view reflects how I live my life on a day to day bases.
Our Journey to God’s Glory I have always been fascinated by the image of God in man. So, the idea that that image carries with it some of God’s glory isn’t surprising. Every one of us is born in God’s image. (Gen 1:26 New International Version) That image reflects God’s glory through us here on earth. If you think of God’s garden with man and woman in it, as a perfect depiction of God’s image reflecting his glory through his creation.
If we can spend time with God praying, worshipping, or reading his word, he can do anything through us. By working with us, God can show us many things, help us, and be a light for us.

Being faithful to God is one trait Joseph showed throughout his entire story.
The word beatitude comes from the Latin word beatus, meaning “happy, fortunate.” The blessings that God bestows on the repentant believer are in relation to the believer’s spiritual, ethical, moral and righteous life. That is not to say that the believer must earn the blessings; however, the blessings result from rightly living. The beatitudes are an extension of Jesus’ proclamation in Matthew 4:17 (NRSV), “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Jesus is telling His disciples that, not only are they to live righteous lives, but that all believers must live righteous lives as well. He speaks as One with authority; as Matthew noted in verse 23, Jesus taught in the synagogues. He was called Rabbi, Lord, Master, Teacher, and other names assigned to someone with authority.

lives and action reflect God as their loving response to him. 2.4.3 Gunton's Doctrine of Creation The following section expounds Gunton’s doctrine of creation in light of his theological framework. The doctrine of creation is one area of his theology that demonstrates the application of his Trinitarian theology. According to him, humans learn the nature of God, the notion of being persons, the world, and ethics from their understanding of the ontology of Trinitarian God in relation as distinct persons. Gunton maintains the importance of the Trinitarian understanding of God-world relationship in his doctrine of creation.
His greatness and humility can be seen through how He was obedient to the last minutes on earth. As humans, everyone should look up to Him and strive their best to have such humble attitude like Him. Moreover, Paul discussed unity in people. Using Jesus, the perfect
