10 Things You Should Know about Christian Ethics — The Aquila Report

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Christian ethics teaches us how to live for the glory of God. The goal of ethics is to lead a life that glorifies God (“do all to the glory of God,” 1 Cor. 10:31). Such a life will have (1) a character that glorifies God (a Christ-like character), (2) results that glorify God (a life that bears abundant fruit for God’s kingdom), and (3) behavior that glorifies God (a life of obedience to God, lived in personal relationship with God).

  1. Christian ethics teaches us how to live.

Christian ethics asks what the whole Bible teaches us about which acts, attitudes, and personal character traits receive God’s approval and which ones do not.

This means that Christian ethics teaches us how to live. It is important to study Christian ethics so that we can better know God’s will, and so that each day we can “walk in a manner worthy of…

SEPTEMBER 27 NO PLACE FOR FANTASY

Truth2Freedom's Blog

I…am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

2 Timothy 1:12

Let me tell you about the true Christian, the Bible Christian, and his view of this troubled and uncertain world in which he lives.

He is not the worldly-wise, smiling optimist who draws his comfort from a denial of the facts or bases his hopes on false expectation of peaceful intentions among nations.

Rather, he is of all men the truest realist. He will have nothing to do with fantasy—he wants to know the facts—and he does not hesitate to face up to any truth wherever he finds it.

He knows the world is lost on a wide area, and that the Christian alone knows the way to the desired haven. For in the Bible, and there only, is found the chart to tell us where we are in…

Prayers for Victory in Spiritual Warfare

A World of Options: A Review Blog

Author: Tony Evans
Originally Published: 2015
Genre: Christian Literature

I initially purchased this book after realizing that I was facing recurring themes in my work-life and personal life which were challenging. As I analyzed myself and how I continued to handle things (mostly by internalizing and avoiding), I picked up this book in a grocery store hoping that it would be helpful. The book is not too long but the depth of the information provided is what caused me to slow down once I began reading it. I incorporated many of the prayers in my prayer journal as I approached each week. The book was not only helpful in providing guidance on a variety of life topics (i.e., addictions, spiritual gifts, marriage, etc.) but it provided insight into areas in which I struggled. I understand that not everyone is of faith-based ideology; however, this book is for those who will…

You Are My Greatest Treasure

Where Words Daily Come Alive.wordpress.com

Your word Lord feeds the hunger of my soul
Your love sustains the life in my heart
I know without your pure wisdom I am lost
And certain unhappiness will begin to start

I know I will only find joy in your presence
You are my sole refuge, my light in this world
In you alone, I receive true lasting blessings
I’ll never turn from Your life gift, my pearl

I cannot last a single day alone without you
I become blind without your embrace of grace
My spirit won’t exist without your spoken word
Without your guidance, my life has no meaning

You are the lasting love which fills me inside
The constant water which cures my daily thirst
You are the purest treasure one will ever find
In their life’s daily journey upon this earth.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2Co 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a
