I believe that this is a key to a successful ministry. You may think that this part is super obvious; however, I believe it is not. With most things comes good intentions. In order to keep a Christ-centered leadership the youth minister must stress the importance daily of being Christ-centered to the leadership staff. Most importantly, this includes pointing everything back to Christ, letting Christ work through the leadership, and letting the Gospel influence every decision.
So, he was very keen in keeping this theological idea in mind while preparing the sermon. The work of preaching is to proclaim the gospel in such a way that those chosen to salvation may hear it and make suitable through faith
We can do so much with our language, such as, encourage, ridicule, pray, and so much more. When speaking, we are to speak with a purpose, whether that be to please, inform persuade or all of the above. Servant speakers are called to speak God’s word and be accountable to God and to others. According to Schultze, “Christian speech defines reality in tune with the word of God, demonstrates accountability to neighbor, self, and ultimately God and imitates Jesus and his godly followers” (P.28). This means that as Christians, we are to imitate Jesus and be like him in everything we do, especially our speech.
The unforeseen plan set by God examines the faithfulness of the people as they rely only on their trust in God’s promise of delivering justice to their oppressors. Habakkuk express concern for Yahweh’s faithfulness towards the righteous whereas Yahweh attempts to distinguish
“Faith sharpens the inner eye, opening the mind to discover in the flux of events the workings of Providence. Here the words of the Book of Proverbs are pertinent: The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps” (John Paul pg. 16). Pope John Paul II explains that faith and reason go hand in hand. Faith does not reduce the autonomy of reason, but reminds people who is at work, causing the events that we attempt to break down with reason: God of Israel.
According to the model, an ontological critique of these phenomenological events must involve a careful examination of how they line up with Christian theology derived from Scripture (ch.14). Following that step, the community of believers, aided by the Holy Spirit, is able to arrive at an agreed upon perspective that will ensure the continued advancement of transformational ministries focused on evangelism, discipleship, teaching, and prophecy of correction and hope to their community
James also, mention mentions by their fruit you will know them, the obedience to God is faith we need faith to be save. Paul and James both .are making arguments for justification, but in different forms. “Justify”, has different meanings, Paul informs us that God will justify both the Jews and the Gentiles, circumcised as well as uncircumcised’ . The more God reveals himself the more salvation is exposed through every one live”, James as I read and search for the scripture referred me back to Isiah 53:5-6, and Acts 10:43, which explains that the prophets did testify to the works of God through Jesus Christ” .
First the word “faith” refers to someone 's ability to believe having commitment and trust. Paul presents early that his master is Jesus Christ, his office as an apostle, and his purpose is to proclaim the gospel of God. Further, he is able to summarize that he has come to call from all of the Gentiles to the obedience of faith. (Rom 1:5) This faith (Greek pistis) is the foundation for the obedience. If genuine, the believer will have obedience as the outcome but that obedience must also be accompanied by that faith.
James 4:17 tells us, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doth it not, to him it is sin.” (KJV) God teaches what is right or wrong while we make our own decisions, but God had enlightened and it is up to us how we respond. Convictions that are contrary to the Holy Spirit can cause division in the church. Paul told the people of Cen΄chre-a΄ in Romans 16:17, “ Now I beseech thee brethren, mark those which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” (KJV) Dr. Dale A. Robbins (victorious.org) explains in his book that ‘we may not be able to stop offensive things from happening, but by applying God’s principles, you can stop them from hurting you.’ Knowing and applying the word of God brings peace to those who want peace. Proverbs 6:16-19 tell us there are six things the Lord hates but seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devised wicked plans, feet that are swift in running in evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren. This scripture speaks loudly to the different types of convictions discussed above.
