How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.
This is perhaps most important as they help his argument the most. In the letter, Banneker alludes to the Bible and the declaration of independence. Alluding to these texts is very effective, because they are important to Jefferson, since he was a religious man, and helped write the declaration of Independence. He uses the declaration of independence to argue against slavery when after quoting it, Banneker says to Jefferson that, even though you were convinced that god created all men equal, you still own slaves. He is basically calling Jefferson a hypocrite and making him question his morality.
In the bible, the book of Isaiah, chapter 41, verse 10 says, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you…” Owen resembles Christ when he too says to John not to be afraid. Owen is there for John just as he always has been, resembling Christ in the book of Matthew, chapter 28, verse 20, “I am with you always.” Owen is Christ-like in many ways. Everyone wants to touch him like in the Gospel of Luke the crowd presses towards Jesus, wanting to touch him because of his healing abilities. Christ describes himself as the light of the world and Owen is constantly associated with light. His skin reflects and absorbs light, “as with a pearl, so that he appeared translucent at times.”

In the Holy Bible, it states this, “ And he answered, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”(Luke 10:17). David Nelson from Prophetic Ministry stated, “Our flesh, emotions and mind can create a very pleasing script for our lives that may reflect our deepest longings and desires.”(www.propheticministryiowa.com). In the poem Beowulf, Beowulf’s lust and thirst for fame drove him to obtain the things he longed for. In the poem it states the following, “But Beowulf longed only for fame.”(40). Beowulf’s longing and thirst for fame was his motivation behind slaying Grendel and his Mother.
The word light was used by Henry, to show again that his views are like gods, and he is not against them. Extending his use of ethos Henry shows that he is religious and that he is establishing his stand as a Christian. Along with using biblical notes he also used a motif to show that the light is the same as fighting for God 's truth. Throughout the speech, Henry establishes various efforts to connect with his audience. He uses logos to show the convention that he has completed his research and fathoms what he is talking about.
Similarly, while aboard the Arbella, William Bradford gives an astounding sermon called A Model of Christian Charity to his fellow travelers. In this message, he points to the direction and sovereignty of God. He begins with, “God Almighty in His most holy and wise providence, hath disposed of the condition of mankind…” (Baym 91). In addition, his sermon continues to point back to God as the source of provision, whether it is plenty or lack. As seen through both writers, one historical and one a sermon, the people clearly trust and depend on God as they colonize the
And last, he states that there is a perseverance of saints, therefore all who are saved are saved for eternity. Calvin expressed these ideas in the Institutes of the Christian Religion. This work of his was received with both criticism and intrigue. Calvin’s ideas were very radical, but he sought to back each of them up with what he believed was the ultimate authority of the Scripture. Calvin combats the idea that the church gives Scripture its authority because he believes that the Bible offers “as clear evidence of its truth, as white and black things do of their color, or sweet and bitter things of their taste” (31).
The Twenty-third Psalm by King David portrays us humans as a flock of sheep and God as our shepherd. The psalm begins with the line, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want" (1), meaning The Lord is watching over us and with him we shall not worry. King David continues, saying, "He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness / for his name 's sake" (3). These lines ensure us that The Lord has forgave us for our sins, and in return we shall carry out the word of God. We must know, as The Lord 's flock, that we were placed on Earth to carry out the will of God.
