Jesus Ministry Promotion

Good Essays
Promote: To endorse, encourage, help, sponsor, stimulate, uphold or support.
The act of being promoted or promoting workers in the workplace is well known to us. Sometimes it is quite clear to everyone why a certain person received a promotion, and often it is not clear. The act of promoting a capable person is to change a worker’s job by giving him more responsibilities, or to give him a job that requires more skills. Often promotion also means to be put in charge of other people. With promotion always comes more accountability. Promotion involves a raise in a person’s responsibility and often also a raise in remuneration.
To qualify for promotion a person has to apply knowledge and experience, be productive and at the same time prove to

She suddenly appears in scripture, tasked with bringing the Messiah into this world as a baby. Her history at this time, her residence at Bethlehem, flight to Egypt, and return to her early home at Nazareth, are recorded in the Bible. On only four occasions is she mentioned in scripture, after the start of Jesus’ ministry. The Bible credits her with only one noteworthy event; giving birth to Jesus. She did not write a book, she did no miracles, she did not minister and she did not spread the Gospel of Jesus. In fact, without Jesus, her life was rather …show more content…
Spirit filled individuals are set apart from everyone else. They have a distinctive common characteristic, boldness. The first outward sign of the Holy Spirit in a person’s life is spontaneous witnessing about the Good News of Jesus. Without the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit, people generally lack the driving force to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. It is the primary task of Kingdom Ambassadors to present the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
A marked difference exists between those filled with the Holy Spirit and those who are not. Without the Holy Spirit, one can at best be a good, religious, church going person. With the Holy Spirit, one can be so much more. Devoid of the dynamic influence of the Holy Spirit, it is almost impossible to constantly, over one’s lifetime; proclaim the good news of Jesus. For Kingdom Ambassadors the influence of the Holy Spirit in their lives will make it possible to, one day, say what Paul wrote to Timothy in 2Timothy chapter 4 verse 7;
‘I have fought the good

    This battle just as Nash conveyed in “Is Jesus the Only Savior?” is only a light reflection of the depth of carnality within the Body of Christ. Sadly, today carnality is the normal standard operating procedure in most Churches, do the fear of trying not to offend one within the services of doing God’s work. It is interesting how the word “love” has been taking out of context from the Word of God. Yes, a Child of God is to love as Christ love. Yet, how many have truly understood being honest with the Word of God is love, even in offending.…

    Doctrine Of Justification

    We are not saved by the good works we do, or the actions that we take, but rather through our faith in Jesus Christ to freely redeem us. Sproul indicates, “His grace was making available to those who would receive it passively, not those who would achieve it actively, but that would receive it by faith, and by which a person could be reconciled to a holy and righteous God (Sproul, 2016). Luther understood that nothing we could do would earn our justification. On our own we are incapable of ever earning it and this is what Paul is getting at in Romans. We are saved, not because we deserve it, but rather because God wants us to be and gives us the gift of his grace freely.…

    Jesus Christ was the promise fulfilled and hope of salvation, by faith, for those who are lost. Harrelson stated in The New Interpreters Study Bible that, “Jesus’ life and ministry reveal God’s presence to the world, but also confronts the world with the difficult decision of whether or not to accept this revelation” (1906). God did not have to send his son to offer salvation to the world, he could’ve simply mandated it, or dramatically opened the heavens and given the call for salvation. Yet, God sent his son, so that we could see love demonstrated. Jesus demonstrates love, compassion, acceptance, and power through the miracles he performs while on earth.…

    In his work “Confessions,” he recounts his struggles to wholeheartedly accept Catholic Christianity as his faith despite his belief in God and Jesus. Augustine initially misunderstood that Catholic Christianity required one to be perfect like Jesus and God, a daunting and impossible task as Augustine’s continuous praises throughout the book illustrate. In the very first line he states: “You are great Lord, and highly to be praised: great is your power and your wisdom is immeasurable” (Augustine p. 3). Already he establishes that the Lord possesses a power and wisdom beyond our own, power and wisdom that we can not possess because we are merely a part of God’s creation, not His equal. Augustine then goes on to say that the Lord is “utterly good” and the “creator of all nature,” two more qualities that we are incapable of possessing because we commit sin and we are, once again, creations rather than creators (Augustine p. 4 and p. 32).…

    Christians trust and believe the principles of the Trinity Doctrine, nonetheless they place the highest focus on only two parts, God and Jesus Christ. They live a Christian life that is crippled and incapable of reaching its full potential of God’s promised spiritual renewal. Churches teach the doctrine of the Godhead (God, Son, and Spirit), but mistakenly place highest emphasis on God and Jesus Christ. Churches give little instruction on the dynamics of the golden seal of the Holy Spirit. The Biblical context is a preset blueprint of the Lord’s foundation of a Christian’s new life.…

    God’s Promise to His Believers Even though an Atheist believes that God does not exist and there is no eternal life for a non-believer. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior will give you eternal life. because As a believer, you must trust in God by faith, through salvation, Romans 10:9 ESV states, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. The Bible clearly states God 's promise to all who believe in Him, offering eternal life in Heaven with Him.…

    In Luther’s second argument he states that no amount of good deeds can produce freedom to soul, only those who have faith in the holy word of God can free their soul. To support the argument that Martin Luther makes we will look closely at one of Martin Luther’s treaties The Freedom of a Christian. This treatise was supposed to be a sign of good faith to show the Pope that there were no hard feelings but “in the eyes of many it became a classic document of liberation” (Marty 63). In his treatise Martin Luther denounces the argument made by Erasmus that good works could lead to salvation or righteousness. He states in this treatise that “in every person there are two natures-one that is of the spirit and one that is of the body” (Lull Russell…

    2 John 7 New Living Translation (NLT) confirms, “I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist.” With the many miracles God perform there should be no question nor any doubt about His existence. It is because of God the reason we are alive, we have what we have, we are where we are in life, and we have the capability to…

    Limited atonement is the belief that Jesus Christ did not die on the cross for everyone. He came to pay for the sins of his elect and not the whole world. Many Christians then and now, struggle with the idea that Christ did not die to save everyone. Calvin’s doctrine seemed too harsh to many believers. Irresistible grace is “the saving grace of God is effectually applied to those whom he has determined to save (the elect), whereby in God's timing, he overcomes their resistance to the call of the gospel and irresistibly brings them to a saving faith in Christ”(Gill, 2014).…

    In helping people to understand that the same Bible (though with limited translations), the same Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, transcends their limited beliefs within various and all cultures. Whether a first-world citizen lives in comfort or a third-world individual lives in poverty, they are all sinners before God. Lesslie Newbigin writes that in truly receiving the Gospel, it will cause a “contradiction [of the culture],” (123) and in it, true conversion (crucifying the old self to resurrect into a new creature in Christ) would occur, regardless of how depraved a culture might be. Thus, the Holy Spirit has the power to change “the heart of stone” into a “heart of flesh” in both a wealthy businessman or the most degenerate man in the Islamist group, Boko Haram. True and sound understanding of Scripture would be a sanctifying process all throughout the life of the believer in “constantly disrupt[ing] sinful cultural patterns.”…
