Romans 5:18 - Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
One of my favorite quotes was once said by Thomas Watson “Jesus Christ went more willingly to the cross than we do to the throne of grace.” Every time I denied Gods love and forgiveness I was basically telling Jesus that what He did for me wasn 't enough. The pain He went through and the blood that He shed for me on the cross wasn 't enough. I was so stubborn and arrogant thinking that if only I do this and this right, if only I say this and this right, then maybe I could earn God 's love. I couldn 't comprehend that the type of love I
Love can bring forth a lot of consequences. It can result in beautiful romantic feelings of being in love and being loved, but also it can result in the heavy burden of sacrifice and giving up. A boyfriend gives up his time of basketball games for his girlfriend. Beauty’s ultimate act of giving up her own life to save her father from the Beast is a great representation of sacrificial love. However, this type of love is not only written in fairy tales, but also in the gospel. Jesus Christ sacrificed his life for the sins of the people on this earth. Christ did not only sacrifice himself to wash the sins of his believers, but he cleansed the sins of everyone else in this world.
Even in the midst of suffering, God is aiming for your ultimate good (Jer. 29:11-13; Rom. 8:28; Gen. 50:20).
He stood between "us" and God; and both the reproaches and the divine displeasure due to them, "met" on his sacred person, and produced the sorrows of the atonement - his bitter agony in the garden and on the cross. Jesus thus showed his love of God in being willing to bear the reproaches aimed at him; and his love to "men" in being willing to endure the sufferings necessary to atone for these very sins.“Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ”.Now may the God: Paul puts these words into the form of a prayer this demonstrates that he recognizes that this is a work that the Holy Spirit must do inside us. The God of patience: Our God is a God of patience. We are often in so much of a hurry, and God often seems to work too slowly for us. Often the purposes of God seem to be delayed but they always are fulfilled. God's delays are not His denials, and He has a loving purpose in every delay.That you may: The goal is to glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Bible also. I became a Christian, and I was baptized at seven years old. My minister at the time, Charles
Because God is love, He feels the pains, the torment, the agony, and the injustice we feel. The Bible talking about Jesus states, “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:1). The Lord saw the affliction of His people, and heed their cries and send Moses to deliver His people out of Egypt (Exodus 3:7). Then again, the Bible tells us at one point that God could not bear the misery of His people (Judges 10:16). “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling” (Psalms 68:5 NIV). God’s love is demonstrated in His justice, ““Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the
Anna Bradstreet, Jonathan Edwards, and many writers had faith in religion, but others like Benjamin Franklin had faith in science. I believe that in order to find inner peace, people must learn to accept things for what they actually are. People do not need to have faith in religion to find their inner peace. Before reading this letter, I have not given much thought into the thing that unites all humans intellectually. This letter made me recognize that the key that unites us all is acceptance. Acceptance can be accomplished through factors other than religion. I established this thought while reading Bradstreet’s letter to her children. It made me realize that religion is not what kept people going through their tough times, but it was their faith that played an enormous role in people’s peace of mind. Furthermore, many writers in her time hoped to benefit future generations by sharing their experiences.
The Bible is one of the most direct ways that a God has chosen to communicate to his creation. Knowing this the Bible should be considered a priceless treasure. The Bible is reliable and should be the solid foundation of everything in our lives. Regardless of one's previous background, it is not possible to live unchanged knowing that Bible is reliable and is the word of
But God restored us to himself through his love and mercy and saved us with his grace (v. 4-7).
Ever since I was born I have been attending church. At this young age they teach you everything about the main stories or the main points of the Bible. At my church I learned stories from Noah’s ark to the story of Adam and Eve eating the apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. I learned about who was the narrator of the Bible and who created our earth. I never knew who were the people that printed out the pages or chose a specific font for the Bible. I didn’t have the background knowledge of what country or if it were the Romans that actually created the Bible. In this world there has been several theories that the Romans were the ones that wrote it or it was the English that wrote it and printed it out. After reading the book “How we got the Bible” by Neil R. Lightfoot, it gave me the right knowledge and understanding of who wrote the wonderful collection of books. Understanding how we got the Bible means that we have to know how it was written, on what it was written and who wrote it.
I always knew about the bible, it would be very hard not to when you live in a Christian household and not to mention my dad being the Senior Pastor at my church. These going through the motions continued into my teen years and being a typical teenager, I start to question why I was doing the things I would do. During all the questions I asked I started to drift away
Romans 5:1 to 11 is based on reconciliation though the death of Jesus Christ and subsequent hope and blessings that follows with faith. In this essay, I will discuss the text before the verses to provide context, the historical background behind the text, the literary context, and the content. Lastly I will make an exegetical summary on what the text hopes to accomplish, a theological witness explaining what the text reveals about God, and eventually interpreting how it can be applied in our own lives.
I have gained so much knowledge about God and his word since starting home schooling in early September. Reading the Bible has become one of the subjects I am required to do every day and it has become my absolute favorite. I have read the entire book of Galatians, Philippians,
