He is the second person in the trinity “The Son”. The mission of Jesus was to teach us to ways of God and guide us back. Jesus was preaching the good news to all and the good news was the Kingdom of God (DiVincenzo, 2015). Into order to gain entrance to heaven, we all must be cleansed of our sins. Jesus was crucified on the cross so that our sins would be wiped clean and we could have another chance of eternal life with the Lord.
Jesus loved us so much that he gave his life so that we might have a right to the tree of life. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life (John3:16 NAB). God loved the world not, so why would St prosper think only the elect will be saved or why would St Aquinas and St Augustine think predestination and salvation are for some and the others are lost, what would be the point to obey the holy spirit if the elect was already chosen for salvation. Jesus had the sins of the whole world on his shoulders, God made Jesus to be sin who knew no sin so that we might become the righteousness of God in him (2 Corinthians 5:21NIV). St. Prosper of Aquitaine says only the elect or saved because God willed them to be saved, God had no respect of person.
Also, Peter commands his readers, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." (1 Peter 3:15, NIV). My perspective on this subject has the potential to influence those around me because knowing God helps me to help others. The more I know about the Bible the more I can help others understand who God is and what he has done for them.
This love asks Christians to show forgiveness to people who have offended you. God also wants us to be forgiving people. Christians are guided by what Jesus said or did through out his life. He told many famous parables on forgiveness one of these is known as ‘the unmerciful servant’. ‘A man owed a great amount of talents to the king and was brought to him.
When Jesus asked his disciples about what people thought about him, they answered that some considered Jesus to be e prophet, some - John the Baptist. But Jesus wanted his disciples to understand his mission, the reason why God brought him to Earth. That is why it was important for him to make sure that people realize who he is and that his sayings are vital for the whole mankind. Jesus was the Messiah, the anointed one, above all other prophets. He was sent to suffer for the all human beings and the reasons why his suffering was necessary are described in Mark's Gospel 8:27-9:1.
And that we are made to be disciples of God to lead those who are lost and without light to the Lord. When I think about the times that we begin to think God has forsaken us it is usually us not looking for God it is us who have blinded our own selves and that Jesus is standing there waiting on us to lay everything before Him. Corrie and Elie made me realize that I need Jesus to be the center of my world that I need a firm relationship with Him before anything else. That God will never leave me. And no matter how scared I may get, no matter how many struggles and fears I face, I need to know who I truly believe in and who I truly trust God will never leave.
Each method will allow you to bring a sermon to based on your audience needs and understanding. Also each method can be bring God’s glory to the people who are listening and learning from you. Expository preaching is the method of using a short passage and build... ... middle of paper ... ... eternity of God. Every preacher and teacher has a responsibility to bring a sermon that lines itself with the Holy Bible.

The Gospels are at one point defined as the good news about how God did the thing that he had always promised to do. The whole story is a public announcement about something that has happened as a result of which the whole world is a different place and everyone is invited to discover that for themselves and to live within the new world that thereby has been created. That is the good news. You can say it in a hundred different ways, but that is the story that... ... middle of paper ... ...e views us as his wonderful work. We should pray because God calls on us to be faithful and obedient to him.
They that worship God must worships him in spirit and in truth. It’s a levite responsibility as a leader/minster that we be able to allow our personal relationship be spill over to cause people to worship when serving in any position of ministry. B. Jesus Christ said the greatest among you is the one who serving. Reminding the disciples that he didn’t come to be serve but he came to serve. This one of the most important factors that as minister we must keep in the forefront of our minds.
It shows us that we were meant to be here, and to still follow this religion. Jesus came to spread the message about the truth, and to inform us about the kingdom of god. Jesus applied all these rules in his own life during his time, and this makes it possible for us to do the same in ours. Following these aspects and virtues of life is the only way to create a connection with god. These qualities are made for and are to be instilled in the average Christian.
