Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16. Paul knew it was the only way of salvation, the one power of God that was effective in forgiving and chaing man and bring them at least to heaven.Now we can see here Paul wrote this letter, the main idea what He wrote was to show what salvation means in the book of Romans. It includes justification, peace with God a new Holy life and glorification. The only power to accomplish all this is the gospel of Christ. Salvation is offered through faith in Jesus, the Messiah, as we can see in the book of Romans 3:21-23; 10:9, through in Jesus we believe that He is the representative of the righteous by His faith, He brought internal life and He brought
This shows that because God has no darkness in Him, ultimately, He is perfect. John the Apostle writes how whoever loves his brother abides in the light. This is important because the goal as a Christian is to become more like Christ, so if we love others we abide in Christ. The more we love our brothers, the more we become like Christ. In 1 John 3, it talks about how we should act as children of God.
However, being a God of love and justice; Hence, He loves unconditionally and unfailingly and His judgment is the scepter of truth and righteousness. So, when He learned that Adam and Eve sinned against Him, He did not curse them in anger for disobeying His command. But instead, He considerately spoke to them and listened to their hearts compassionately; And God believed their testimony that He sharply turned to the evil serpent and cursed him and his existence for as long as he lives, but for Adam and Eve, God only pronounced them the just punishment their sin deserved—Adam would be raising his family through painful labor of the ground and Eve would be experiencing painful childbearing. Distinctively, after this incident, as a show of love and forgiveness, God affectionately made for them garments out of animal skin to keep them warm. (Genesis 3:9-21)In human term, parents usually discipline their children to correct their misconducts, because they love them.
His compassion never struggles with His righteousness, virtue and holiness, as there is harmony in His honourable character. God is a Holy Father who loves all people equally and longs to have companionship and intimacy with them. (Muehlenberg, 2013) However, His sanctity demands that we approach Him washed of our iniquity, which the salvation work of Jesus Christ on the cross makes conceivable. (Muehlenberg, 2013) The love of God is an important part of God’s nature. (Muehlenberg, 2013) Christ God’s ultimate and faultless word to humanity is Jesus
and of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace." 2 Timothy 1:6-9a Paul and the elders of the church had laid hands on Timothy and prayed over him to ordain him into ministry. Paul instructs Timothy to "fan into flame the gift of God" to encourage him to look to God for guidance so that he can use his gift as God intended him to and to draw strength, power, love and self-discipline that can only come from God.
For this reason, ____________________________________________ The New Covenant relationship between God and Israel is inevitable because God made a covenant commitment to the patriarchs and it is not His nature to change His promises and to deny those He has chosen to bless their blessings! ________________________________________________________ Hence, the Apostle Paul clarified, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance or irrevocable! (Romans 11:29) ” Thus, the New Covenant is the development of the Abrahamic covenant! God promised Abraham that in him shall all the families of the earth be blessed. This declaration was actually a promise of a son – Jesus Christ (a special blessing) by whom all the families of the earth would be blessed through the gift of salvation that would be made possible by His sacrificial death on the
Biblical Background Genesis means “beginning”. Genesis is the book that tells about God and how he deals with people. It also tells about human beings, even the people who are wicked. But some people trusted and obeyed God. The first chapter of Genesis tells about how God made everything.
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
It was right and proper that in bringing many sons to glory, God (from whom and by whom everything exists) should make the leader of their salvation a perfect leader through the fact that he suffered. For the one who makes men holy and the men who are made holy share a common humanity. So that he is not ashamed to call them his brothers, for he says: 'I will declare your name to my brethren; in the midst of the congregation I will sing praise to you ' (Psalm 22:22).And again, speaking as a man, he says: 'I will put my trust in him ' (Isaiah 8:17). And, one more instance, in these words: 'Here am I and the children whom God has
Tom and Eva’s pure love for everyone is the Christian kind of love which extends to everyone around them, not one to the people who love them but to all the people who mistreats them and hate them. Stowe believed in this concept of love, the people who practice without it are just kidding themselves as selfless love is the essence of true religious faith. Even in the Bible, the holy book of the Christian, there is many verse about love and the southern American clearly misinterprets it. Here is a proof of that misinterpretation, John 13:34, “A new commandment I gave unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” But If they are true Christian and believes in the Bible, they should be able to understand the Bible, it could be either they don’t want to understand as they are blinded by materialistic things and power or they do not consider the slaves as their fellow human
