Understanding the gospel starts with a comprehension of God’s heavenly character. In the event that we disregard this establishment, there is no real way to indicate our children a standard they can’t meet. What’s more, without a set up, unattainable standard, there is no requirement for the uplifting news of the gospel.
Make certain to show your children that, despite the fact that God made us in His picture, and adores us, He is too sacred to even consider associating with us (Hab. 1:13). Help them to comprehend God’s interest for immaculate exemplary nature (Matt. 5:48), which at that point prompts a discourse with respect to how His equity expects Him to rebuff all miscreants (Rom. 1:18– 20).
Be solid and bold. Try not to tremble! Try not to fear them! The Master your God is the person who is running with you. He won’t desert you or abandon you. You make the way of life known to me.
Complete satisfaction is in your essence. Delights are close by for eternity. Despite the fact that I stroll through the dull valley of death since you are with me, I dread no mischief. Your pole and your staff give me valor. The God who is in his heavenly home is the dad of the bastard and the protector of widows. God puts desolate individuals in families. He drives detainees out of jail into gainful lives, yet defiant individuals should live in a useless land.
Jesus said to them, “Have faith in God! I can guarantee this truth: This is what will be done for someone who doesn’t doubt but believes what he says will happen: He can say to this mountain, ‘Be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it will be done for him. That’s why I tell you to have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:22-24
“Some people are like seeds on rocky soil. They welcome the word with joy whenever they hear it, but they don’t develop any roots. They believe for a while, but when their faith is tested, they abandon it. The seeds that were planted among thornbushes are people who hear the word, but as life goes on the worries, riches, and pleasures of life choke them. So they don’t produce anything good. The seeds that were planted on good ground are people who also hear the word. But they keep it in their good and honest hearts and produce what is good despite what life may bring.” Luke 8:13-15
Then the blind man shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”… Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said, “Lord, I want to see again.” Jesus told him, “Receive your sight! Your faith has made you well.” Luke 18:38-42
“As Moses lifted up the snake on a pole in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up. Then everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.” John 3:14-15
Jesus said to her, “I am the one who brings people back to life, and I am life itself. Those who believe in me will live even if they die. Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe that?” John 11:25-26
Then Jesus said loudly, “Whoever believes in me believes not only in me but also in the one who sent me. Whoever sees me sees the one who sent me. I am the light that has come into the world so that everyone who believes in me will not live in the dark.” John 12:44-46
Many studies have found positive associations between religion and health in the United States. Americans who regularly attend religious services tend to live longer. One of the greatest miracles God performs is that of a changed life. Millions of lives are delivered from substance abuse, destructive/self-destructive habits, emotional wounds, etc.
Although it might seem difficult at first, it is possible to change the way we think
Recognize negative thoughts.
Each time a negative thought enters your mind, make note of how you’re feeling. Ask yourself things like: Does this thought help me in any way? Does it make me happy, or does it steal my peace? Is this a problem God can’t handle, or am I assuming it’s too big for Him? (Trick question: Nothing is too big for God!) Is it even true according to God’s Word? Asking God to make us aware of our negative thoughts is the first step to learning to control them.
Reject negative thoughts.
Once you learn to be aware of your negative thoughts, you can begin to combat them and fight back. Each time you notice a negative thought, aim to pause and reject it. Remind yourself not to focus on the negativity, and instead, try to focus on something positive. Take control of what you’re thinking, rather than letting your thoughts run rampant. Then, turn that negative thought around.
