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.
We are not grateful we don’t respect the lives we live in every day. But that's not the point, we don’t even remember the reason we laugh, play and learn, if I were to tell you the number of people who died for us to have a bright future those numbers won’t matter the thoughts will. When I think about Veterans day I think about people who came back from the war and live a happy life, but I was wrong after learning the truth. Veterans day was the day we respect what we lose but even more we respect what we gained. That is what Veterans day means to me.
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.
Veterans Day The origin of the creation of Veterans Day began after World War 1 and a treaty was signed to supposedly end of the war. The war officially ended when the treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919 in the palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars. It began 1954 as a national holiday.
It’s a scene of what awaits them after death, and according to the decisions in their life, Christians will go to either heaven or hell. In Christian faith, those who lived according to god’s law were going to be saved. And those who sinned without reconciliation were damned. This also acts as a moralizing purpose because it made people live simpler lives. Salvation is a completely free gift from the Lord and comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Many believers do not count the cost of following Christ. One is told to accept the free gift of eternal life, repent of sins, join a church, and then learn to do the best one can concerning all the rest. One is usually not told about the cost of being a Christ-follower, nor does one have much of an idea of what God expects of them now that they are saved. Stewardship is entirely based on the first commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Holy Bible, NIV, Mat 22:37). Stewardship is the product of one’s new worldview that is brought about by one’s conversion.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day set aside for remembrance of those who have died in our nations service. Memorial Day was first proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, in his General order number 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868; when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers. The South, at first, refused to acknowledge, Memorial Day, honoring their dead on separate days until after WWI. It is now observed in almost every state of the union on the last Monday of every May. Since the Civil War more than 1.1 million veterans, both women and men, have lost their lives in service to America.
E) The parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25) among others. THE PURPOSE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT MESSAGE: The below summary may help the believer to have a sound faith: I) the modern believer need to appreciate among other things that the grand subject is that of Salvation and the redemption message of how Christ came from heaven to earth. Christ came to seek and to save the lost. Man became sinner because of the Adamic nature and needs a savior (Romans 3:23, 6:23). 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.
Frank Tyger said “Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness”. From the analysis and explanations above, we have seen these rights are very important to people in Thomas Jefferson age’s and to people in our modern society.

Luke gives us an image of Jesus as one who reaches out to the Gentiles and has a special concern for the poor and marginalised. It is shown in Luke’s Gospel that Jesus helped and welcomed the outcasts and performs miracles on them. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Lk 4:18-19) This passage shows that he is non judgmental and truly divine. Luke’s gospel includes many themes.
