I am Beowulf, not afraid of you. I am Beowulf, come to kill you!”(Nye 69). As people know too much pride in oneself will lead to a decline in the person's life. Beowulf is continually referring back to God as his savior in this book, Beowulf talks about his battle with Grendel's mother and says that he would have died if it wasn't for God guarding him. People thrilled about the win, “His men were too astonished to rise a cheer.
Since the rise of Christianity among nations, people have been asking the question: why does evil exist when there is a God who is sovereign, powerful, and loving? Is he not able to fight the evil surrounding us? Or does God want to see us suffer which makes him an unloving Father after all? Saint Ignatius 's life explains a probable reason as to why evil exists and how one can flee from the temptations of this world. He was once a soldier who enjoyed the pleasures the world has always been offering, but he was soon reunited with God in the latter part of his life.
Lord, I thank you for the extraordinary favor you continue to release on and in my life daily. I thank you for my life and for life more abundantly. I believe you release new life, new favor, grace and mercies predestined and ordained for me daily. Lord, I believe and receive all the spiritual gifts from heaven you have entrusted to me and placed in my life. Your favor serves as a shield of protection that covers me with your blood, The blood of Jesus, that causes
Thomas More is greatly known by his book called “Utopia”. More put God at the center of his decisions for example when he refused to say that Henry VIII was the head of the church he neglected it and kept God as the center. He was then beheaded and then the Church blessed him in 1886 and became a saint in 1935. Even at his trial he always kept God’s role in his life. “I die the king’s good servant, and God’s first”-Thomas More.
The doctrine of sufficiency also means that no one should take away or add to scripture. In fact there is even a curse for doing so in Revelation 22:18-19. God has given us enough to point us to himself and to teach us how to have a right relationship with him. Scripture helps us hear God’s voice and live a life that is able to please him. The Bible’s sufficiency is why Martin Luther was able to cry out with confidence “sola Scriptura,” which mean “Scripture alone (53).” He understood the depths and riches of Scripture and how it had everything needed in order to know God and have salvation in
DAY 18: ALL ABOUT SALVATION What does Salvation mean? It’s not a word we use a lot, but it’s a big word that means a lot. Salvation is the word we use when someone asks Jesus to live in their heart, to forgive their sins and give them a life in heaven after they die. The Bible tells us that Salvation means we are rescued, or saved, because when we ask Jesus into our heart, He saves us from our sins and the punishment of our sins. It is a good word to remember, because it’s a word that changes our lives forever for those who love Jesus.
E) The parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25) among others. THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT MESSAGE: The below summary may help the believer to have a sound faith: I) the modern believer need to appreciate among other things that the grand subject is that of Salvation and the redemption message of how Christ came from heaven to earth. Christ came to seek and to save the lost. Man became sinner because of the Adamic nature and needs a savior (Romans 3:23, 6:23). ii) Those who believe in Christ become sons of God (John1:10, 12) and they will not be condemned (John3:16-18), the believers are entitled for eternal life.
As Christians we should know that there is always a way for things to turn out good though Christ. “Four: we need to invest in people” (Darnel). People are the reason for the glory to God. God loves people: we are His most prized creation. If we do not invest in people’s lives and tell them about the good news of the Gospel, then our evangelism is weak.
Through the cross, Christ bears with him the sins of humanity and in exchange, he gives humanity salvation.Through this, humanity gets a hope of eternal life despite of his sinful nature. The cross acts as a transformation of humanity from sinful and guilty of God's punishment into sinless and innocent creation of God through a gradual process of sanctification.Through sanctification, God transforms man into a better being so that he may save him in the end.Through the cross, Christ transforms a totally sinful and guilty person, alienated from God because of his sins, into a totally accepted child of

We, likewise, thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who brings us into covenant with You and with one another.
