Tim Tebow “You never know how the tough times you are going through today will inspire someone else tomorrow.” (Tebow, shaken). In his book, Tim Tebow talks about the struggles he's been though and how God has helped him through it all. He lives his life always honoring God and his decisions portray being a Christian. Tim Tebow is a great role model because he's athletic, he's a good leader and mentor and most important he loves God. Tim Tebow was called a “miracle baby” because his parents were told he had to be aborted for his mom to live.
In this parable the father who is an unfaltering and forgiving is a representation of the unfaltering love of God the father. When Jesus told the story in His time, the lost younger son was a representation of the sinners or tax collectors while the older son becomes the self-absorbed Pharisees. I think there are two messages in the parable and one is just as important as the other. There is a joyous conversion of a sinner but there is also a restoration of a believer with a closer fellowship with God. Throughout this story the father of the two sons remained a giving and loving father with a strong spirit of forgiveness.
1 John 1 John begins with a statement concerning his testimony: he has seen the Word of life with his own eyes and he has heard Jesus’ words personally. This is important to the readers of the letter who are probably already among those who never had that opportunity. God came down to earth in the form of His son, Jesus Christ; it is a powerful thing that John is testifying to here. I like the way John says that he writes this to ‘make his joy complete’. It is as if he can’t help sharing what he knows about Jesus, and he delights in the knowledge that he can bless their lives too.
This rebuilds their relationship with God and rebuilds them in the family of the Church. There are many teachings in the New Testament just one example is the parable of the 'Lost Son'. It is a story of a son who spends his entire share of his Father's money but later realises what a mistake he has made .He returns to his Father and asks for penance an action that will act as a remedy for the main fault of him. However his Father forgave him instantly. This shows if you are truly sorry for sins God will always forgive you.
Each member of the body of Christ longs to be remembered as “a man after God’s own heart,” (Acts 13:22) constantly praising The LORD, as King David did (Psalm 34:1). As Yeshua’s chosen ones, we strive to flee from sin, yet each of have fallen short (Romans 3:23). Without doubt, our mere human efforts cannot equate to righteousness. David was well aware of his human limitations, and trusted His God is all things. (Psalm 25:1) Forgiveness is often recognized as a focal point of the New Testament, but God’s relationship with David highlights His gentle heart and open arms that existed even before the crucifixion of His Son, Jesus Christ.
This is without a doubt the greatest display of humility and love in the history of the world. Christ’s example of humility can give us the strength to come to Him with a broken heart and a contrite spirit when we have fallen short, because we know that He has felt of our heartache and understands how difficult it is to seek forgiveness. As we strive to continually humble ourselves before Christ, He can use the Atonement not only to cleanse us from sin but to also to turn our weaknesses into strengths as we progress towards eternal life with our
The author was born into the Baptist faith. He was very active in the church and always had a great love for fellow citizens. But the call was heartwrenching. It felt like gaining a new take on life. It takes the passive love for people and forces action to reach out and help your fellow brother.
When a king was upset he would often take a violent path. God, on the other hand, chose to send someone kind and loving to help us rather than to hurt us. This proves that God is and was genuinely concerned for us, and wanted to see us prosper. “ Now that the common savior of all has died on our behalf, we who believe in Christ no longer die” (Athanasius 21). God wants us to have faith in Him, He wants us to live forever with Him.
However, when searching scripture, one can find what He wanted most of all from us. “Love the Lord your God with all your heat and with all your soul and with all your mind; this is the great and foremost commandment. The second one is like it; you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22.37-39). His life and ministry was first for His father’s will to die for the forgiveness of sin for all of humanity; allowing direct access to God through Jesus Christ. Secondly was an example of how we are to become.
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!
