Corinthians 10: 10-10 Analysis

John 10:10;
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it abundantly.

Even the devil can disguise himself when approaching the children of God. Our defense is God, love and humility. Let us embrace the good news that no evil scheme can ruin us if we abide in the light of the glorious Gospel of true freedom, which is in Jesus Christ and Him alone.

2 Corinthians 4:6-12;
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of the Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Works in James are the outworking of faith; if it’s not a living faith, it becomes dead works. Abraham’s work of faith was not only seen in his obedience to God’s command, but also in the fact that he believed that God would raise up his son (Hebrews 11:19). God had promised Abraham that Isaac would have children and he believed that God would keep this promise even though God had commanded him to kill Isaac (Genesis 21:12). How can a dead Isaac have children? Abraham knew that the only solution to this impossible dilemma was that God would have to raise his son from the dead. Abraham’s momentous faith in God’s ability to fulfill His Word despite such difficulty is commended by the writer of Hebrews 11:19. Abraham’s faith manifested itself in his willingness to obey God when all reason would repudiate his actions. This faith is seen as fruit of works of his previous faith which is unto salvation. Salvation by grace alone through faith is a broad and crucial topic; my next book will focus on this

    Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven. O’Collins’ conclusion on this passage and other Biblical passages that provide evidence into God’s divine love is, “God’s initiative of love clarifies the story of salvation” (Christology, p.300). O’Collins argues that we cannot understand the story of salvation if we don’t find and appreciate that there is evidence showing that God loves us. If we can understand divine love from God then we can reason why Christ is the redeemer of the world. Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues.…

    In a fallen world, a father and a son hope to survive and keep their morality unlike the others who lose their mind. The father, as Abraham from the Bible has a God-given purpose to act out of pure faith. The father needs to save his child from death when it seems impossible. God sent Jesus into this world as a sacrifice, Abraham had to offer Isaac as an offering, and so did the father from “The Road” had a God-given duty to protect his son. The author of this story wrote a post-apocalyptic novel with a hidden meaning behind.…

    “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my father which is in heaven” “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10). Nothing could be more reasonable. Upon choosing to follow the Lord, it’s only natural that faith in Him be confessed. Fourth, baptism is a required act in the Lord’s Plan of Salvation.…

    The people can not bear the fruit of Christ if Christ does not have followers who want to plant the seeds. The Lord, our savior, delivered us from the darkness of sin into the light and, we need to give thanks to the Father for His love. Christ is the son of God and in Colossians, He is declared to be "before all things, and in him all things hold together." He is the reason our evil deeds are reconciled and, the reason we are given the chance of eternal life. The least we can do for Christ is to be stable and steadfast in our faith.…

    Christ’s holiness was not just the absence of actual sin, but a perfect conformity to the will of His Father. Jesus made it known He was about his Father’s will. (Bridges, 2006, p. 47) The Pursuit of holiness is directing us to take on the mindset of Christ because we are no longer slaves to sin. Paul said we died from sin. God delivered us from sin through his union with Christ death.…

    The grace of God is the gift of salvation granted to sinners for their redemption. The common Christian teaching is that grace is unmerited mercy (favor) that God gave to humanity by sending his son to die on a cross, thus delivering eternal salvation. Although Jesus stood alone to face His accusers, we never have to. When the powers of this world, seen and unseen, condemn us, Jesus is always standing alongside not to protest our innocence, but to offer Himself as the one who has already stood trial for our sins. Ephesians 2:8 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves."…

    I felt God telling me to choose Abraham, as he was a faithful servant of God. As I was reading into the context of Abraham, I found his obedience and faithfulness is what led to his blessing. Sometimes in my life, I try so hard and fail, forgetting that God is in control of every circumstance. This passage shows me that being obedient in God’s eyes, you can be made fruitful and he will prosper you. Abraham was put to the test because God wanted to see if he still loved him.…

    Many of us would doubt whether the word did in fact come from God but Abraham knew who his God was and did not falter in obedience. He was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice and to give up his promised son. Thankfully, God provided a substitute for Isaac and set a precedent so that now all of our lives have been paid for through God’s only son Jesus Christ. Abraham’s sacrifice shows us just a glimpse of who our God is, how great He is and what He is prepared to do for…
