The Love of God
God is the creator of all life and he is the highest of all powers, he embodies all ‘persons’ (The Father, The Son, and The Spirit). Although we cannot be as him, we should try to follow his guidance. In this world, it is easy to get wrapped in earthly things. We are humans, and many of times we fail by trying to hold a certain status, gain certain materialistic possessions, and cause great emotional/physical harm to one another. In my beliefs, that is not the way one should live. We should shed love, just how God gave us his everlasting love, even when Adam and Eve disobeyed him. God did not look to regain power over them by being vengeful of any sort, instead he sought after Adam to restore the relationship. At times, we begin to lose sight of the relationship with God, we start becoming selfish and

We need to place our trust and love solely into him, and our family, partnerships, and friendships will then fall into order. We should not value what we see in shopping centers, and we should never idealize who we see on the television. Every growing day, makes it harder to stand true to these standards of living. As I have read in an article, “it is our privilege and responsibility to invite others, who are not yet believers, to faith in Christ and service to him.” We need to do better at expanding the words to others. We were created to live in a loving communion with God, and one another. In my opinion, we should value praying and talking with God each day. We may start to find ourselves losing sight of God and his pure love, which results in us lingering in places we should not. guidance he gives us, God would never lead us down a path of sin. So, when we find ourselves distancing from, him, we should recollect many reasons and passages as to why we should not. As in Psalm 18:2, “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my

Before we same with the world, our conducts, our aim, our behaviour, and focus to enjoying this present life.

    We must continue to strive to follow Jesus even when it doesn’t feel right emotionally, Romans 8:12. Egoism says if it advances my self-interest than it is ok to do it, (Fritz, 2016). We can see clearly from Jesus’ life that this doesn’t line us with how He lived and His nature, Philippians 2:8. We cannot save ourselves, but the through the beautiful redemption of God’s grace He will save us and begin to process of renewing our hearts to become more like…

    “To preach Christ means to feed the soul, make it righteous, set it free, and save it, provided the preaching is believed” (Lull Russell 405). Here Luther says that no robe can save their soul, just attending church will not bring you righteousness, not amount of prayer can save you from damnation that only those who have faith in the word of God can be saved. Although these priests, and laity may preach the word of God to others they must not only speak of the gospel to be saved but they must believe it. He states that no amount of praying, sacred duties, or fasting could lead to Christian righteousness or freedom as these are good works that any hypocrite could perform (Lull Russell 405). Anyone can pray to God or fast but only faith in the word of God will grant the sinner true freedom and righteousness, no good works.…

    You do not cause attention to yourselves. Romans 12:2 says in paraphrase, do not settle your differences as the world. We should solve our issue in a manner that no one would know you had an altercation. Paul wrote the letter because he was concerned about the believer's spiritual lives. These believers are his joy and future crown when he stands before the…

    In order to accentuate our absolute our absolute dependence upon God’s grace, he now sharply rejected any suggestion of requisite good works or holiness prior to justification, characterizing all human efforts prior to saving acceptance by God as sin. However, it was not long before he became uncomfortable with implications that some drew from this theme of faith alone (Maddox 149). Wesley’s writing abound with affirmations of the provenience and indispensability of God’s pardoning / empowering grace for human salvation, particularly after 1738. However, such affirmations were tied to recognition that humans may (regrettably) resist God’s gracious salvific overtures, for God’s restoring grace is co-operant (Maddox 147). The co-operant nature of grace entails that we must “put it to work,” as Wesley phrased it in his classic articulation of the co-operant nature of salvation: the 1785 sermon on Philippians 2:12-13, “On Working Out Our Own Salvation” (Maddox 147).…

    Now I know that before I prayed I need to have faith in God and believe that God answer on the right time. If I don’t get what I need, I will know that it is not what God wants me to have and he is preparing better things to me. When we ask with faith he will give it to us. That is why sometime we ask and we don’t get answers because we asked with no faith. We need to believe and have faith before we ask because God knows what we need before we speak.…

    One needs to put their trust in him and quit worrying and continually keep their eyes set on today rather than what is to come. “Jesus is not saying that his followers may be as careless as the birds and the flowers, doing no work and simply looking to out Father to provide everything…But there is all the difference in the world between doing this in anxiety and fear and doing it in trust in a loving Father” “Jesus’ disciples must live lives qualitatively different from those of people who have no trust in God’s fatherly care and no fundamental goals beyond material things” (32): We are not unbelievers so we need to stop acting are as we are. If one worries they are not putting their trust in the Lord but in themselves, we must strive to be different in every way we approach life comparing between believers and unbelievers of Christ. (33): Based on this verse from Scripture, Longman and Garland seem to explain it best, “…makes it clear that Jesus’ disciples are not simply to refrain from the pursuit of temporal things as their primary goal in order to differentiate themselves from pagans; instead they are to replace such pursuits with goals of far greater…

    He seemed adamant in believing the negative and bias opinion that psychology is not an appropriate form of care and assistance. His complete lack of respect or view for another opinion has greatly inhibited him from knowledge that could refute his claims. Also, I find it odd that he stated in the beginning that there is no such thing as “Christian” psychology but then goes on to talk about how to be a real Christian Psychologist. Before speaking to someone from John MacArthur’s church I would want a more current knowledge of his stance as well as the indivudal beliefs of those I am speaking with. Although though they attend the chuirch that does not neccersily mean that adopt the same ideals on everything.…

    In keeping with the body as a holy temple of God, you could substitute boycotting Target with avoiding numerous other places. However, Christ ministered to the sinners in his ministry (Mark 2:15-17). Followers of Christ don’t need to be found; they already are. They do need to be discipled in order to lead more effective lives and produce more fruit, but they are already His. The sinners need to be found and ministered to in order to further the kingdom of God.…
