We need to give honor to God by the firmness with which we believe his promises. May our conduct be such as to honor God; that is, to show our conviction that God was worthy of implicit confidence and trust. In this way, we will believe in the promises of God, so as to do honor to him. Our faithful actions will bear testimony to him that he is worthy of confidence. We to will become witnesses in his favor; and furnish to our fellow-men evidence that God has a claim on the authority and trust of mankind.
“FAITH is a negation of reason,” writes British philosopher A. C. Grayling.
“The relation of faith to reason is of utmost importance for the thinking believer. The problem of how to combine these aspects of personhood has existed from the earliest apologists. Justin Martyr, Clement of Alexandria, and Tertullian all struggled.” – Norman L. Geisler
As you read this article, take note of how true faith and reason are compatible.
In faith and love which is in Christ Jesus – Hold these truths with sincere faith in the Lord Jesus, and with that love which is the best evidence of attachment to him. Spiritual health is far more important than physical health.
There is nothing inherently wrong with being dependent on others. Healthy cooperation and reciprocal relationships are the foundation of human social life; the Christian community ought to be characterized by the many ways in which we love the brothers and sisters.
Unselfish, loyal, and benevolent intention and commitment toward another.
LOVE. First and last word in Christian theology and ethics. It is therefore important to understand clearly this exceedingly ambiguous term.
The truths of God’s Word will not benefit us unless we give heed to them. It will not save us that the Lord Jesus has come and spoken to people unless we are disposed to listen. It will not benefit us that the sun shines unless we open our eyes. Books will not help us unless we read them; medicine, unless we take it; nor will the fruits of the earth sustain our lives, however rich and abundant they may be, if we disregard and neglect them. So with the truths of God’s Word. There is truth enough to save the world – but the world ignores and despises it. Many Christians barely study it.
