But when we walk with the Word of God inside our hearts, we are all able to humble ourselves and live righteously. Many times we want to voice our own opinions, we want to be right and not consider others opinions. When we don't get our way, we allow the devil to tempt us with anger. It is written in the book of James ch1 v19-v21 (NLT) v19 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. v20 Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.
If you look up the word persecute, it means to afflict, torture, harass, worry or bother. Who in their right mind wants to pray for people who cause us such pain? It’s our human nature to forget about those people; however, Jesus set the standard that we are to follow. He loved, and died for, the very people who ignored, mocked, hated and beat Him. If anyone has the right to hate, it's Jesus; but He chooses to love us even in our darkest, most unlovable
I feel that when we truly see ourselves for what we are in the darkness that resides within each of us this realization is what allows us to go from a person that hated someone simply for the color of their skin, or their political views, or their religion, is how we turn that hatred into a love for all mankind. I feel that we all have within us that ability to change not only our views of the world around us but in a small way in the view of the world itself and is Dr. Pearce stated in his lecture the only way to erase hate is with rational love. (Pearce 02-01-18) I feel that it is through this unconditional love that we each and every human carries within them is how a highly racist person can turn into someone who is guided by a love for all
He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
1. The Suffering and the Mystery of Evil “Man suffers whenever he experiences any kind of evil.” The concept of suffering and evil are closely connected. Pope John Paul II addresses this relationship between suffering and evil in his apostolic letter as follows: Man suffers on account of evil, which is certain lack, limitation or distortion of good. We could say that man suffers because of a good in which he does not share, from which in a certain sense he is cut off, or of which he has deprived himself. He particularly suffers when he an ought-in the normal order of things-to have share in this good and does not have it.
As Christians, we are to share the word of the Gospel and show how life is when you have God in your heart. We all sin, but the difference between me and a non-believer sinning is that I repent and they don’t. The sermon inspires me to share the Gospel even more because of the world as it is now and I can’t bear the thought of a person living eternally in hell. So, I feel that he was successful because he instilled how important it is to seek God and the consequences if you reject
“...the oning of the godhed gave strength to the manhed for love to suffer more than alle men might” (Chapter 20). The Eucharist is significant because it provides Believers with the opportunity to identify with the sufferings of Christ while also serving as a reminder of the chasm between humanity and God and heightening their desire for perfect
David pours out his heart before God and be begs earnestly for deliverance. David is fully assured that God had heard his prayer and he will be delivered out of his calamities. God will send comfort in affliction so that David may triumph over his enemy. The reason why David took heart and courage to order his wicked persecutor to be gone from him is the assurance that God heard him. David did not only lift up prayers, but he had wept and made supplication.
Note that this has nothing to do with loving our self. We are all sinners and destined to hell if we do not put our faith in Yahshua. Yahweh expects to be Lord of our life. In doing that we have to give up the only thing we truly own, our will. Yahshua in His omnipotence gives grace to all who accept Him as Lord and savior.
It says that the fall of Man was the cause of separation of Man and God, that is, evil has distanced Man from divinity. Thus, Man is sent on earth to strive hard in order to gain his position in the eyes of the Supreme. It also talks about the Supremacy of God and human soul, which has an unexplainable connection. The purpose of Man’s life is salvation and reunion with the God, which is achieved by serving his creations. Moreover, it says that spirituality and divinity is hidden within every human soul.
