The Christian worldview may differ in different denominations of Christianity but only exist because of their belief of God and Jesus. Conclusion As we have looked in to the Christian worldview of God, our humanity, the Son of God, and the restoration of our lives back into God’s purpose. Now we have a better understanding of what it means to be a member of the Christian community. God wants believers to dwell in union and in community having the same mind that is in Jesus Christ (Phil 2:1-11). This paper showed how God and Jesus Christ are at the fundamental core of all Christian beliefs regardless of the countless differences many Christians may
The believer’s new identity needs to continually transform their character to that of Christ, and their actions must identify them as servants of the King. I. Christian Character Theological Definition The character of a Christian is multifaceted and extremely important. Outwardly, a Christian’s character is the visible witness that expresses who Jesus is to the individual, and the difference He has made in their lives. Thus it is imperative that a correct reflection of God be portrayed by the believer with authentic Christ-like character. Character is not only an external expression.
Each parable from the gospel gives indirect stories that portray a lesson. Each one has examples to show people how to conduct their behavior and how a life being god conscious should be. Also, each parable shows attributes of god, to show us who he really is, and how much to expect from his greatness. Each parable shows us how to please god, and to not just focus on worldly affairs, but to keep our eye on the main goal, which is heaven. A parable in the gospel by Mathew is the parable of the net.
In conclusion, “Preaching is divine activity wherein the word of God is proclaimed or announced on contemporary issues for and ultimate response to our God.” It is the seriousness of preaching that goes forth among God’s people, to invoke a call for a response to the good news of God. Understanding the meaning and task of preaching frees one to be used as a vessel that God uses to impart change into the lives of his people. It is God that does the work, it is not the works of my own.
God has given divine instruction on how a person should live the life as followers of Jesus Christ on earth. God’s words are inchangable and confusion is absent. Paul writes, “God is not a God of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the Saints” (1 Cor. 14:33, NASB). The peace of God is essential, along with prayer and fasting in the kindgom lifestyle.
As Christians, we should be adherents of Christ, our Lord and Savior. Moreover, we are to carry out and preach The Great Commission to all humanity, whereby we are governed. Likewise, as verbalized in I Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;” (King James Version), we should live a conscientious life that is pleasing to God. Nevertheless, in order to have Holiness, we must be compliant to God’s commandments and attend to our conscience. However, our conscience begins with the heart and it is the heart which fuels our conscious to compel us to live our lives Holy and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1) Holiness Defined Moreover, the Bible tells us in I Thessalonians 4:7, “For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” (King James Version).
Faith is built on spirituality surrounding one’s cultural beliefs, behaviors, and ... ... middle of paper ... ... Our faith as Christians should be in the ability to hold firmly and trust in the revelation of God’s word. Revelation must not be ignored. The Faith “surrounds” our reason with three key elements in mind, which are focused on human life, and God’s mysterious existence and power. Faith is justified in our reason and not just a state of mind to fill the void of reasoned knowledge. I believe there is a special knowledge that is centered and leads us to truth---and reason toward our obligations, commitments and how dedicated we are in Christ.
However from this you see that revelation is all united in harmony. The Dei Verbum reveals that revelation as the self-disclosure of the trinity. The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit show that there is faith and love. Faith and love is important in revelation. God was prominent from the divine mystery, spoke with human beings, and made them commit their lives with obedience to the life of faith.
Such experience is a summons to self-searching, to repentance, and to fresh commitment. It is not an occasion for anxiety. God is faith, and he will complete what he has begun.”3 The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, like a good sermon, moves from crisis, to hope and ends with practical application. Christianity today faces a culture that wants to relegate the truth of the Gospel to a pluralism of religious values that contributes to a universal search for salvation. However, there is hope for Christians in the unique story of God 's work for the redemption of the world and the promise of Christ 's return.
Romans to make this providential care clear when it says "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose" (ESV, Romans 8:28) Paul writes that the people of God are influenced by God 's concurrence: His work using what He has made (Jones 91). All things, while sometimes seemingly irrelevant or malevolent, work for the overall good. Paul later goes on to say "and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified" (ESV, Romans 8:30) God works in His people (who are His creation) to glorify Himself as Paul writes in Philippians "...for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure" (ESV, Philippians 2:13).
