    There are many things which should motivate us to obey God. Surely gratitude and love are preeminent motivations (2 Cor ). The prospect of the Judgment Seat of Christ and eternal rewards are also vital motivations (Matt ; 1 Cor ; 2 Cor ; James ). Let's open our Bibles to Romans chapter And I feel a little bit like a man who has just eaten a huge meal and is standing in front of a smorgasbord. There's so much here, and I .

The superior importance of the things of Jesus Christ to our own things, should determine our preference. How poor and trifling, in comparison, are all those objects which so much engross the time and attention of the great bulk of mankind.

Now let’s think about the life of our souls and our relationship with God.

Father Plus, a reknowned Priest and Writer, gaurantees solid, practical, down-to-earth, Christian guidance for families throughout this book.

My wife and I have been married for over 5 and half years, with 3 wonderful children, and Christ In The Home still provides concrete counselling and guidance in our roles as Father / Husband and Mother 5/5(7). The Holy Ghost is a lamp to light our onward march.

The office of the Holy Ghost is to bear record of Christ, or to testify of him, and confirm the believer in the truth, by bringing to his recollection things that have passed, and showing or revealing to the mind things present and to come.

Ambrose, esteeming very highly the dignity of the ministerial office, was most desirous that the clergy of his diocese should live worthily of their high vocation, and be good and profitable examples to the people.

Consequently he undertook the following treatise, setting forth the duties of the clergy, and taking as a model the treatise of Cicero, De Officiis. "Now, would you look at and read Romans`For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord'.

Are there people around you--friends, co-workers, family-members--who are, for various reasons, paralyzed in regard to their relationship to Christ and the Church.

And are you willing to carry them. That is the evangelical question that this Gospel.

Wherefore, it being our duty, as hath been proved, to invocate the name of Christ in a particular manner, and this being the ordinary solemn way of the worship of the church we may consider on what occasions, and in what seasons, this peculiar invocation of Christ, who in his divine person is both our God and our advocate, is necessary for us.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We are to be one in Spirit with Christ. We worship Him. He is the focus of our lives. We desire Him above everything else in a holy way. We find our purpose, contentment, joy, peace, satisfaction, fulfillment and identity primarily in Him.

War For Souls The Ancient Sage prepares the brew, There’s a deadly potion pending. A wicked plan, a dangerous crew, A band for war they are sending. Deadly though that message be, Much worse the vein that’s spiked.

Scorpions ascend from abysmal sea, Their music has them psyched. The lights are to remind us that Christ is "The Light of the world." As the light streams from the candles into our eyes, so does the light of Christ's Presence enter into our souls.

In most churches two lights are lit at every celebration of the Holy Communion. (When a Bishop celebrates it is common to light two more.). If one loves Christ supremely with heart, soul, and mind, he will obey the first four commandments that have to do with our duty to God.

God's faithfulness seems to have been a favorite subject of Paul's. Steps to Christ one at a time Step one is to view the intensity of God’s immeasurable love for each of us, for you, in the light of Jesus’ life and death.

Step two is to realize that we have no power within on which to depend. Our hope is in Jesus, to Whom we can look and live, because only by beholding do we become changed. CHRIST WHO HAS COME INTO THE WORLD SEEKS ADMISSION TO THE HEART as a lawful and everlasting tenant.
