I chose the theme love because as I said before love is a precious gift that God has given us to cherish and love others as we love ourselves. In the Old Testament love is described as affectionate, strong liking, romantic, and sexual implications. Love is described in the New Testament as it has more specific meanings than the English word meaning “love”. I believe that God gave us this gift so that we can share it among others and not harm on another because God loves us all the time even when we are sinning. My thinking about love is that most people today do not know the meaning of love, I believe that if God was able to physically sit down and speak to us he would be
According to Gockel, “from a Christian perspective, evil is something God has overcome through good” (2009, p.97). Those who believe in God, know that questioning Him is wrong because it means that they do not believe in the goodness of God. People who trust the Lord know his goodness, that He will rescue and heal them from all evil. Also, believers trust in God’s power in difficult times because He hears them throughout the prayers. God can be trusted as he has proven his love in many ways.
If we truly are sorry and repent then he will forgive us. We also have to love other people too. They are his own creation and he told us to love others just as he has loved us. We are supposed to be able to see God in our own actions, and God through their own actions. God loves us so much that he gave up his own son for us.
When things seem to be at its worst its Jesus who carries the burden for me. Today’s culture takes advantage of the love Jesus has to offer, selfishness seems to be the normal act of today’s society. My Christian worldview helps my personal decisions I make with my family and career. I remember to treat others like I want to be treated (Luke 6:31, King James Version) even when other treat me unsatisfactory. My purpose is to minister to others how great God is, and to testify about the miracles he’s worked for me.
Jesus explained and described to people the Heavens. Jesus taught others how to love others along with loving yourself as well.The most important message Jesus wished to get across was to live by God’s words. He explains to everyone that these are the rules in which God wants us to live by, but don’t be mistaken, he understands we are not perfect, he understands we will make mistakes, but please, ask for his forgiveness, celebrate the festivities of Yom Kippur and Lent, show God that you truly are sorry for the potential sins you may have committed, but most of all, love one another and love the one and only God. He explains in a way in which I translated, that everyday God watches us, everyday he may judge us, but not necessarily in a bad way. Jesus simply wants us to fulfill God 's laws, love him and ourselves and respect one another, but to be weary.
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
He is so holy and so awesome that being in His everlasting presence brings an inspiring fear.” (CARM) As this CARM states, God is so amazing and so powerful. He is not there to intimidate Christians but instead inspire them to follow him and live after the life that he had laid out for all Christians. “Dis•ci•pline: control that is gained by req... ... middle of paper ... ...ighty ways of forgiveness, it is just that person’ job to decide which road to take. God forgives all of his children no matter what they have done in the past, are doing now, or will do in the future. God also asks all of his followers to forgive other because he has forgiven them.
In the sermon on the mount Jesus also explained about loving enemy’s. Jesus told his followers to love their enemy’s and to pray for them as well. Jesus was making a great demand of his followers, there was to be no revenge or retaliation but instead he said “love your enemy’s and pray for those who persecute you. Forgiveness was to be the characteristics of his followers. This love asks Christians to show forgiveness to people who have offended you.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us (1 John, 4, Bible Dictionary).
This type of love is the love that God has for His own children. This type of love is what was displayed on the cross by Jesus Christ” (Crier, 2015). The New Testament says multiple times that God is agape love, showing that God is the ultimate, most self-sacrificing love. Throughout the Bible God provides for His children out of love and even punishes them out of His love for His children. “Much is made of God's wrath and punishment in the Old Testament, but when God punishes, it is with reluctance… In fact, God often pleads with the Israelites to stop doing wrong and repent so that he may bless them” (God’s love, n.d.).
