Christ has saved us not only to snatch us from the eternal consequence of sin but to make it possible for us to glorify God by serving Him in the beauty of holiness. Glorifying God is the main cause that should compel us to live a life that is God-honoring. Continue reading →
For Americans who wish to serve abroad, ambassador is one of the most highly sought after positions. This position is commonly handed out based on political favors to the president or to the political party that the president belongs to. Although our sinful nature can corrupt the appointment of ambassadors by placing people in these positions who lack the proper qualifications, there are a number of reasons why people who show loyalty to the president are appointed.

It’s such a tragedy that as followers of Christ who should have the strongest, the most joyful, as well as the most secured marriages on the face of this earth are the exact ones whose marriages are prone to end with a divorce. What a catastrophe! The point is that we’ve been called by God to be loving, faithful, caring, compassionate, forgiving, merciful, supportive, and so forth, and we break marriage unions way more often than the general public.
The main foundation of the Christian faith is laid on Christ’s death and resurrection. Aside from Him, humanity would find themselves into such a hopeless state. Christ willingly gave Himself up for all of us without any reservation; therefore, He wants us to do the exact same thing. The shame, humiliation, and the excruciating pains that He was about to experience didn’t become a factor that held Him back from giving His life for us.
Christ was sent by God to accomplish an extremely critical mission. The main purpose of that mission was to create a way through which humanity can be brought back to God and inherit eternal life. Glory to God, it was a mission that was fulfilled successfully and victoriously when He willingly gave His life and came back to life after three days.
As humans, we’re made to rely on our Maker who is the source of our intrinsic being. Although, sin and Satan that happen to have the capability of imprinting all types of erroneous belief into your mind may well persuade us to believe that we can live without God, but it’s just a complete lie from the pit of hell. Unfortunately, as it has always been during the course of humankind history, many people are living their lives that way. The truth is that you may allow yourself to be deceived to the degree that you don’t really feel the need of having Christ in your life; nevertheless, you’ll certainly get into a point where you’ll come to the realization that His absence in your life is the greatest and worst mistake that you could have ever made.
Holiness is one of the themes that’s so prevalent all throughout the word of God. We’re commanded by God to be holy (1 Peter 1:16). Moreover, holiness is such a critical matter; therefore, nobody will be able to see the Lord without it according to (Hebrews 12:14). Holiness is one of the major things that the death of Jesus on the cross by shedding His blood has made it possible for us to attain (Hebrews 13:12). Evidently, holiness is not based on what we’ve done by our own merit; instead, it’s completely dependent on what Christ has done for us and is willing to do through us. Therefore, let’s take a look at this scripture below:
We’re made by God to serve Him. Unfortunately, humanity happens to lose that sense of purpose immediately after plunging into sin as a result of Adam’s and Eve’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden. Men then find themselves living their lives apart from God, completely lost in their sin with no sense of purpose. Nevertheless, we’re made with a very specific purpose by the creator, and we’re also made in a very unique fashion unlike other creations (Genesis 1:26). God has equipped us with many abilities that would enable us to obediently and reverently carry out His will on this earth.
