Our focus as believers, for ourselves, is to love and worship God, to uplift Him in everything we do, to glorify Him in our lives, to love those around us, to be a light in a dark world, and to share God’s love with everyone around us. It ultimately comes back to us serving God and pleasing Him (Crabb, 1977, p. 21). As Psalm 144:15 states, “Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord”. Rather than seeking happiness, one should focus their efforts on seeking God. From there, true happiness will emerge.
If we are able to do this, God will take note of our faithfulness by rewarding us with eternal life with him in heaven. God praises those who have the courage to do what is right and knows who takes value of his love by the actions in which we show. In the movie John Q, all the Beatitudes have been shown, and most of them have been ignored. Throughout the movie John Q is made to be merciful, to try and make peace, to be pure but mostly John has to fight for justice because of the problems he faces and the life morals he values. John can be related to every single one of the Beatitudes.
In the Gospel of Mark, I see Jesus, the Son of God, as a loving, faithful, obedient servant who walks in compassion; doing the will of His Father. He is a servant. His message to us all is “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Jesus witnessed to us on how to be great, by giving our life in service to God. Jesus taught us a new definition for greatness, the word servant.
Through prayer we are able communicate the same with our loving father, Jehovah. We’re able speak to Jehovah as if pouring out our hearts to a close friend, parent or a spouse. Our meaningful prayers involves more than words though. Let turn in our bibles to Matt 22:37 Why Meaningful Prayers Involve More Than Words. “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ So meaningful prayers involves loving Jehovah with our whole heart, soul and mind.
Salvation is a completely free gift from the Lord and comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. This is idea lead people to a gracious lifestyle in order to be saved. This fear was accomplished by the dreadful images of hell to make people live good lives, in order to not suffer at the end of
I try to live up to Gods standards even though it is hard. I also try to be as perfect as I can. It’s crazy how God can put up with all your nonsense. But he does no that we were made with original sin and that we will always make mistakes. God is our savior if we didn’t have him the world would be so crazy.
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
This simple action of Ben signifies his selfless love to other person. He didn’t chose to be in Baguio to enjoy instead he consider his father who is in need of help, like other people who needs his father. This act of considering others before him is a concrete meaning of love. The scene wherein Ben baptized the tetanus child during its last moment is a clear manifestation of his pure love, his desire to become a priest is there. And mostly his love of wanting the sick child to see in the kingdom of God through his baptism shows his love to a human being which he didn’t know
