ii) Those who believe in Christ become sons of God (John1:10, 12) and they will not be condemned (John3:16-18), the believers are entitled for eternal life. iii) INCARNATION: How Christ the Word became flesh/man and came to dwell among mankind. (John 10)Though many dispute the deity of Christ, it is the truth. God himself at Jesus baptism attested to Jesus as his only begotten son (Matthew 3:14, 15). IV) Justification Doctrine: The believer should learn and eternalize the message of redemption and justification.
We often hear of the “Great Commission” being the true representation of what the church is to do. Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” This is Christ himself telling us what we must do; in today’s society how many churches actually follow this? The church is a gift of God, and He desires to see all humanity in communion. The only way to see this happen is to go and spread the Gospel with every person on this glorious earth, which is the foundation for every church.
Impact and blessings in time and eternity depend on fulfilling God's plan in time. Therefore, the question becomes emphatic. What is God's plan for the Christian after the point of personal faith in Christ? God freely gives "all things" after providing salvation (Romans 8:32). What are these things that God provides?
Jesus taught us a new definition for greatness, the word servant. “Anyone can be great, because anyone can serve.” He gave of Himself. Jesus showed us all by example how to be great; by giving our lives in service to God. His service to humankind was motivated by Love. Mark Twain said, “Kindness (Love) is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” That is the language that Jesus spoke.

The significant connection in all three words is in its meaning, which the Oxford Dictionary has defined thoroughly, “preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss; deliverance from sin and its consequences.” The essence therefore is to be saved, salvaged, or redeemed. The following Bible verses conjure such a motif. Psalm 118:21 “I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.” Isaiah 33:2 “O Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.” It can be clearly seen that the Bible is emphasizing the definition that surrounds salvation. The Koran on the other hand teaches that only those who believe will be saved.
I. SERMON ON THE MOUNT: CORE VALUES OF THE KINGDOM A. The Sermon on the Mount is the constitution of God’s kingdom. It is Jesus’ most comprehensive statement on a believer’s role in cooperating with the grace of God and is the “litmus test” to measure our spiritual development and ministry impact. In this sermon, Jesus calls His people to perfect obedience and to make this their primary goal in life. We do this by seeking to walk in all the light that the Spirit gives us.
Christian Education is a part of God’s purpose to put everything in Creation under the feet of Christ; it serves as part of His purpose to subdue people from all nations to the glory of God. I also think a Christian Education is a better education, because it feed the soul as well as the mind. It addresses the whole human being; it involves the body, sprit and the mind. One important goal of Christian Education is to teach the student to reason biblically. If each adult person or the parents of younger student took it upon themselves to be more Christ-like and build their foundation of education to glorify God, they would choose the Christian Education over the Public Education, which is controlled by the state.
Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth. The Son of God is also evident from the sacred texts of the Gospel testimonies which include the wonders and recoveries on people achieved by Jesus, and from the witness to his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven by his followers and other eyewitnesses. The beliefs of the divinity recognise his relationship to God as Son. Jesus’s divinity showed Jesus’ role to be the salvation of humanity and to resurrect and rise to defeat death. In the Gospel of John 1:14 “The Word became
The meaning of “Eternal Life” in the St. John Gospel! Comment on verses chp- 16, 17, 18 Eternal life: Eternal life is literally Christ Himself: 1 John 1:1,2 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life-- 2 and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us-- 1 John 5:11-13 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.
