All He asks of us is to repent from our sins and seek Him with all our hearts. This parable motivates believers to always repent because God is the most merciful and forgiving. Besides teaching about the good news, Jesus also performed miracles that caused many people to believe in his
When we live by the Word of God and love one another, forgive, and be merciful and kind to one another, do not practice and eye for and eye but pray for the ones who wrong us or misuse us. We are able to live the life God intended for us.

The act of being put into a right relationship with God by faith corresponds to Justification. Justification is available to all humans because of what Jesus did on the cross. Romans 5:8-11 says, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
God’s promise of salvation continues today and forever. Jesus took away our condemnation to sin and replaced it with freedom in Him. “Salvation is by grace, which means freedom from sin by the indwelling, fortifying, cleansing life of the Spirit, and not by works of the law” (Willard, 88). We obey God’s commands not to get into heaven, but because we love Him. Christians today love others and serve God because of the desires of the Spirit.
In our journey with God, we are in constant repentance and turning away from our sins towards holiness. It was through the atonement of Christ on the cross that earned us salvation. It was essentially because of the love and justice of God that the atonement was necessary. (Rom. 3:25) So that we can be saved and not condemned.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1; 1, King James Version). The word of God is all powerful when he spoke things happened, one word from our master and mountains would move. The birth of Jesus was a prophecy that came to pass so this lets me know that this was foreseen as an act of love from our Lord and savior. Jesus giving of himself to save the soul and sins of man shows unconditional love that no one can compare to. God’s purpose impacts my worldview because of the lessons he taught, the miracles he performed, and the death and resurrection he faced.
In the book Let the Nations be Glad, Piper Explains the close relationship missions and worship share. Missions exist because of worship, and worship is a result of our Love of Christ in our hearts that drives us to glorify him, and naturally do missions. The nations are the focus of mission, and Piper explains why he believes that the Biblical mission includes evangelism with the nations in sight instead of only individuals. Piper systematically outlines the evidence that hell exists and what it is, he also outlines the reason that knowing Christ is the only way to be saved by trusting in him as your savior. Chapter One In Let the Nations be Glad, the emphasis in the first chapter is that missions is not the most important aspect

When we take the time to see what the writer and God are trying to tell us through the passage, we can more effectively study the Bible and extract more information that has relevance to our Christian walk. Romans 11:33 through 12:2 display praises sent to God that also present questions about his character that, when answered, give us a depiction of the vastness of God’s glory. The second part of this passage tells us how we should live – striving to be like minded with Christ.
Bible Project Salvation What is Justification? Justification is the work of God where the moral rightness of Jesus is given to the sinner, so the sinner is declared by God as being morally right under the Law. This moral rightness is not earned or kept by any effort of the saved. Justification is an immediate event with the result being never-ending life. It is based completely and only upon Jesus' sacrifice on the cross ("and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to moral rightness; for by His wounds you were healed.")
