Just as the church had a divine beginning, it also has a divine mission. The mission of the church is given to us to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Preaching the gospel is one mission of the church because the church is God’s body of believers, or change agents, to evangelize the world. Numerous New Testament passages indicate that the church is to preach the gospel. Jesus charged the apostles with proclaiming the gospel to all nations (Matt.
In this article, we will look closely at Gorgias’ use of images and speeches in Helen. In Encomium of Helen, Gorgias has used many images as common places to strength his argument. He has used power of god, power of the strong over the weak, power of persuasion and power of love. In his use of power of god and fate, he says “God is a stronger force than man in might and in wit and in other ways.” What I want emphasis is that the impression of god overpowers everything is not established through his speech. It is an idea implanted in many of us, especially the religious people, through our own personal experience.
You see this news was ground-breaking that even angles were amazes. Church is no small matter. It is something that modern believers for the most part do not understand rightly. My brothers and sisters Christ loves and died for the church, Christ builds His church, Christ Adds to His Church, and the purpose of the church is to worship Him, to evangelize the world. We must take the church very serious.
Saints: Persons whose exceptional holiness of life is formally recognised by the Church and who are entitled to veneration. Worship: Often used interchangeably with ‘liturgy’, although worship is the preferred term in the Reformed Churches. Both refer in general to celebrations or gatherings of the faithful for prayer and sacraments. What do Christians mean by prayer? Prayer is an important way in which the Christian acknowledges the existence of a relationship between God and humanity and, more importantly, that God relates to each human being and all creation with ongoing compassion and goodness.
Christianity "Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made," (Isaiah 43:7) (Biblehub.com, n.d.) The verse above from the Bible expounds that mankind is created for God's glory – to praise God, worship Him, to proclaim His greatness, and to accomplish His will. These glorify Him. This is the meaning for the existence of Mankind, created by Him, according to His desire, and living a life for Him so that Mankind might accomplish what He has destined Mankind to do. Christians belief that when they trust the One who has created them in His image, who works all things after the guidance of His will (Ephesians 1:11), then they have led a purposeful life. Islam “Know that the life of this world is but amusement
Romans 1:20 says “that the creation has been seen and understood because of God’s invisible qualities, divine nature and His eternal power so that men may not have an excuse.” It, therefore, follows that God is seen through His creation. He has made everything showing mercy to those who spit on His face that He is the same God that created everything by the power of His word. People who have seen His glory through His creation have no excuse before Him for they have seen and experienced yet rejected Him (Frank, 2013). Our Human Identity According to Paul, Christians should find their human identity in knowing Jesus and their true nature. Genesis 1:27 says “that we are made in God’s image” and according to Romans 7:25, “are joined to the father in spiritual union through Jesus Christ.”In Him, we find who we are because of the fellowship we have with Him.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea, and Samaria and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8) As a church we recognize that we serve the Triune God, and we stress the importance of developing our relationship with God and with Jesus, yet it seems to me that there is a lack of talk about our relationship with the Spirit. What is the Holy Spirit? I believe many of us regard the Spirit as something of an essence or wind-like force that surrounds us and leads us to be like God.
I am different from those who directly lead the worship, but I aid them in the process. This is related to my holy discontent which aides them. While I am perusing my calling, I have seen many areas that I can improve based on the areas that God has gifted me. We all can relate to Moses’ situation in our own unique way. He was the only one that could lead God’s people out into the Promised Land.
Despite our failings, God will always love all people because they are part of God. Christians across the world see the lived example of Jesus’ suffering through the crucifix [].The way Jesus lived his life and treated other people, the stories he told, provide Christians with a model for living the mission of God calls all people to live. This mission is to be a person who loves and cares for all human beings as part of God’s family []. This means that all are invited by God to use their gifts and talents and daily lives to make a difference to the lives of others. Jesus’ mission was to spread the good news that God loves all human beings regardless of who they are, where they come from and what they have done.
Each one of us is called by God and the basis of that calling is set out in Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” We can see clearly from Matthew 28:19 that each of us who have been born again, water baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit have a direct and unmistakable calling from God to serve Him in ministry. The question is not whether we have a calling but what does the outworking of that calling look like in our lives? We have the logos Word of God for us as stated in Matthew 28:19 but the logos with out the revealed Rhema Word of God will have no power in our lives. So how do we hear this Rhema Word? 1) A supernatural encounter - Saul of Tarsus was a zealous man who thought he was doing the will of God by persecuting this sect called “The Way” but God intervened and Saul had a supernatural encounter with God on that Damascus road.
