JUDGE, LAWGIVER, KING, AND SAVIOR ALL IN ONE
The Apostles' Creed. The Apostles' Creed is rooted in the early church. It did not reach its final form until the 7th century in France. At its essence the Apostles' Creed is a distillation of the essentials of Christian faith as expressed in the Bible. Through the years the Apostles' Creed has aided in providing a clear understanding of what Christianity is and what it is not.
John 14:15. Many of us love God, but we are unsure what his will is for us in our lives. One thing that is God’s will is that he desires for us to keep his commandments. Jesus tells us in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments”. In saying this was Jesus referring to the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament or something else?
Ecclesiastes 12:13: Many of us ask how to know God’s will. We love God, but we are unsure of what he wants from us. King Solomon had these questions in the book of Ecclesiastes. He had tried everything under the sun, but he found everything was vanity. It is only at the conclusion of the book of Ecclesiastes that he answers his own question about how to know God’s will.
GOD REVEALS WHAT IS RIGHT, WE CHOOSE TO DO RIGHT OR DO WRONG
GOD IS MY JUDGE, MY LAWGIVER, MY KING, MY SAVIOR
Joshua 1:8. From a Christian perspective, daily Bible study and prayer is key to our prosperity. The Bible is God’s guidebook for us to lead prosperous and successful lives. There are numerous examples in the Bible of God promising prosperity by following God’s word.
Romans 13:8. Christians should not have unnecessary debts or past due obligations. These are burdens that strain our relationships with our fellowman and go against God‘s commandments. We are to love our fellowman, not owe them. Romans 13:7-8 says, “Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
1 John 3:22. If we are in right relationship with God, then our prayers will be answered. 1 John 3:22 says, “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” God desires to give us the desires of our heart, but he can only do this if we are in right relationship with him by keeping his commandments.
