We bring the fruit of our lips, meaning we bring words to God in prayer, that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. We may not know how to pray. We may not know what to say. That is the beauty of the Holy Spirit because He knows how to pray for us and through us. As we pray in the Spirit, the Holy Spirit prophetically prompts us with words in our hearts to bring to God, our heavenly Judge.
And I still seek answers from God. But I pray to him. I try to live a Christian walk as much as I can. When someone wrongs me I forgive him or her even though sometimes it can be a tough to do. But I know that this is what God wants me to do.
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.
We should pray because God calls on us to be faithful and obedient to him. Sometimes we pray to God without even realizing it. There are so many things in this world that connect us to God that we don’t even know about. The spreading of good news is what we do when we share the good that Christ has done for us. It is a personal calling for each person to gladly accept him from an eternity in hell and to show that he cares for us by rescuing us from Satan’s corruptions.
As long as you don't commit adultery and be good in the intellectual world, you will be okay. In this writing, “The sermon on the Mount”, by St. Matthews we see how one may enter heaven and avoid going to hell. We must live good in the intellectual world because to Jesus it is the most important world. We must resist evil by giving kindness to those who persecute us. We must give alms in secret and we must pray in secret to prove to God we are not doing it for the attention.
The book of god revealed to the Christians was the Bible. This book is here to show the way of life of a devout human being. In the bible are guidelines to how one should live and spend their time in life. The bible talks about all the evils of man, and this fake illusion like world. It warns man of the punishments that are to come if man does not follow the way of god, and also assures great reward if one does follow and believe.
My goal here tonight is give some scriptures that you may be able to look at for strength in your everyday life. But first in order to find the strength within the scripture we must open a hearts to Gods will and not our own. We must also accept Gods will and that his answer might not be exactly what we are looking for but as long as we keep an open mind we will see that he does answer our prayers. We have to place are self and are faithful fully in God or we might miss Gods plan for us. I remember hearing JB speaking on praying for patients and that we may ask for patients but it might not come to us the way were looking for it.
God can be trusted as he has proven his love in many ways. According to the Bible, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Suffering is part of humanity because when people believe in God, but sometimes wonder they begin to suffer because they are at fault. (Hiles & Smith, 2014). When a person begins to wonder why God is taking so long to hear their prayer, they begin to think they are not a fault.
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.
Jesus taught that people must be persistent in prayer. They should not expect their prayers to be answered straight away. Jesus taught that Christians must pray with true faith and devotion. Prayer was the way through which Jesus could talk to his father, God. Jesus believed that God had a purpose for his creation.
