In John 13, Jesus teaches his various ways of love. From the start of washing His disciple’s feet, to the end telling His disciples to love one another. His teaching of equality in verse sixteen explains that one person may not be greater than the other regardless of title, proves that love should remain as love. One person cannot love or be blessed more than the other, for that brings envy and superiority and that is where love is lost. Jesus teaches us His way of love through the love of one another so that we show that we are His.
Begin living out what they have learned, have room for forgiveness and pray daily. Jesus 's teachings will give parents greater strength, wisdom, and support in parent-child relationships and also
With regard to relationships, Scripture teaches, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together…” (Hebrews 10:24-25a, NASB). Likewise, positive communication is valued in Scripture, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (Ephesians 4:29, NASB). Finally, commitment to justice is connected to one’s relationship with the Father, “But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always.”
If our behavior is derived from our worldview, then our faith should impact how we think and our behavior when interacting with others. Christian psychologist David Myers, of Hope College, explains how he integrates his Christian worldview into the world of psychology. Myers explains that, “Believing that in everything we deal with God, and feeling called to worship with our minds, we search Gods world, seeking to discern its truths.” (Myers, 1996). Myers goes on to discuss how it is a religious duty that our faith act as our attitude in everything that we do.
Blake described in the “Divine Image” that the virtues of delight were mercy, pity, peace, and love to these virtues the people “return their thankfulness” (4). This proves that these four virtues are characteristics of being human. People are thankful of these virtues because when individuals think of virtues one thinks of God. God is most known for having these virtues, so people see these virtues like blessing. People try to have these traits because they want to model God and feel grateful for these characteristics.
Thoughtful sympathy inspirational gifts combine spiritual support with encouragement in times of grief. They place an emphasis on celebrating the life of the deceased and challenge us to move on to honor our loved ones with courage and hope.

What constitutes inspiration will vary with the individual and takes into consideration the person 's world view and value system.
An anonymous person once said that “we aren’t called to shine our own lights; we are called to reflect His.” A born again Christian, once fully understanding the gospel and putting his or hers trust in Jesus, will desire to want to grow and obey God in order to honor and glorify Him, and since the only one who kept God’s law perfectly was Jesus, then one will want manifest and imitate Christ in everything he or she does. Not only does reflecting Christ’s image glorify God, it stands out to others as well. All true believers experience radical change because of the Spirit, and that change shines like a bright light towards other people leading them to ask, wonder, and desire that change and growth in their own lives as
I thought it would be a really good reflection if I discover my rootedness on what I do. And so I started my prayer period begging for the “grace of deep gratitude for the Father’s love” and to “be moved, as the Father’s beloved child, to live, love, and serve with joy.” I spent quite a lot of time thinking about what specific things I do to serve others and why I do these things. For every specific way of service to others I could think of, I tried to reflect and trace back these acts to the very cause of why I do it. At first, it was quite frustrating when I really couldn’t trace these acts of service to their cause.
God’s love, strength, justice and wrath are infinite but the worldly disappointments, hatred and the fear ends. King uses Christian scriptures as his evidence. In the bible, God promised his people as long as they have full faith in him that he would aid them and strengthen them to do what is difficult in the midst of hard
It is a responsibility placed upon each believer to decide to obey God’s word and live out this great salvation worked in us by Christ. We are to live out our salvation with a sense of fear and trembling – not in craven, cowardly or weak fear – but with a sense of godly fear, a frame of mind which embodies humility – with a sense of respect to God and His character and nature we see in scripture; with a sense to live this life worthy of the calling. Because we understand it is God who works in us – it is His divine nature that helps us and instructs us – it is His Holy Spirit who teaches us – but it is our responsibility to walk obediently “Keep in step with the Holy Spirit” to act according to His good purpose and work out own
This is because if the reader does not understand viewpoint of the story begin told, they will never truly understand the situation the character is in. A great biblical story to understand the importance of tone and narration is the story the last supper. The last supper tales of the last true miracle of Jesus Christ before he 's crucified. It also shows the way that believers of Christ are to operate in remembrance of his sacrifice each time they gather.
To sum it up, our family. Even when our people are down and out as well as less fortunate with not having nothing. We have to find more ways to help people in those situations. When we call on Jesus help and we have all faith in him- he will stretch his hand out to us and help us in our time in need. If it is meant for us to have it then God will provide.
Therefore we must either choose to accept or reject the idea of Him and either become a member of the Christian faith or not. We now possess knowledge of God and His gifts to us as humanity and are also aware of the steps needed to be taken in order to be saved. We can no longer use the excuse of ignorance to God. He also bestowed us with our own free will in order to love him and follow Him on our own, as He only wants moral and honest people as his followers.
It is important to note that optimism alone is unsatisfactory. In my context, optimism is deeply rooted in the power of the Holy Spirit to work through His people. As a pastor, it is essential that I communicate through word and deed what is possible. In order to effectively accomplish the task, I must not allow negativity to flow within the church.
