The Biblical Characteristics Of Love

God’s love isn’t about us at all but rather an expression of His being.

Within the Word of God, there’s a form of love that extends far beyond the scope of romantic love or sexual love, and close friendship or brotherly love. This love is known by the Greek term as “Agape”. God is the only One who possesses this kind of love due to the fact that He’s love by nature (1 John 4:8). What is truly magnificent about this form of love is that it’s both self-sacrificial and unconditional. This love was and is extended to us as sinful people in God’s sight, regardless of our unworthiness to Him.

How To Be A Mighty Businessperson In The Sight Of God

As Christians, we have to ensure that Christ is at the center of the business we’re leading.

As followers of Christ; in other words, as imitators of Christ, everything we’re doing on this earth must be done in such a fashion that pleases and glorifies the God whom we’re serving. Our foremost objective as Christians is to glorify Him in everything we’re doing (1 Corinthians 10:31) by allowing Him to be preeminent. We have to really give Him a chance in order for Him to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords in our daily lives by relying heavily on Him.

Body, Soul, And Spirit

Man is both created and made at the same time.

As human beings, we are made of three vital elements. These three elements are known as spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Man has two major aspects that define whom he really is. The first one is the spiritual or immaterial aspect, and the second one is the physical or material aspect. Two out of those three elements are spirit, such as both the soul and the human spirit while the body is physical.

The Misbeliefs Of Jehovah’s Witnesses About The Person of Jesus Christ

Jehovah’s Witnesses happen to have the wrong and the impotent Jesus Christ.

It’s quite interesting that there have always been massive confusions and misbeliefs that surround the person of Jesus Christ all throughout the history of the church. Unsurprisingly, they are all directed toward denying His divinity. Meaning that whenever you hear something about Jesus that goes against how Scripture depicts Him, you can be quite sure that His deity is being questioned or tampered with. That’s kind of consequential misbelief is very common in every false religion.

The Fruit Of True Confession Of Sin Is Repentance

Confession of sin should always lead to repentance.

First, confession of sin is based on acknowledging that you’ve done evil in the eyes of God by seeking His forgiveness. The essence of confession is the demolition of pride, arrogance, and dishonesty which are the very barrier to acknowledgment of wrongness. We need to understand that the most significant aspect concerning confession hinges on how we conduct ourselves before God later, after confessing a particular sin that we’ve committed.

What Did Christ Mean By Saying You Must Hate Your Own Family?

Jesus Christ wants us who’d like to follow Him to truly understand the cost of discipleship.

There’s in fact a number of seemingly bizarre statements that Christ made during His earthly ministries that sound very unhuman and unreasonable. That’s why those who are unsaved who cannot grasp what Christ truly meant label Him as an extremist, or someone who has lost touch with reality. While these statements may not make any sense at all from a humanistic perspective because they are inconsistent with how we operate in this world; however, they do possess powerful spiritual truths hidden into them that transcend human understanding.  Continue reading

3 Critical Elements That Sustain Faith

Our faith in God is built on these three main pillars which are trust, obedience, and patience.

Faith is constituted of several vital substances. First, faith is connected to God’s grace bestowed upon mankind through Christ (John 1:14; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Titus 3:5). That’s the very starting point of faith. When we’re exercising faith in God, we have to believe that whatever we need from Him had already been fulfilled through His Son Christ Jesus through grace.
