How does God’s cong­re­ga­ti­on come about? The Holy Spi­rit cal­ls and gat­hers pe­op­le

Vieraskieliset / In-english2.4.2014 0.00

Fel­lows­hip in the Holy Spi­rit joins be­lie­vers in a cong­re­ga­ti­on, in­to which God cal­ls new mem­bers. God’s cong­re­ga­ti­on is not a tem­po­ral ins­ti­tu­ti­on or as­so­ci­a­ti­on. It is cre­a­ted by a bond through faith with Je­sus Christ and ot­her be­lie­vers. Life in the cong­re­ga­ti­on of God brings joy and pe­a­ce in­to one’s he­art.

Ser­vant of the Word

Vieraskieliset / In-english2.4.2014 0.00

The task of a ser­vant of the word is ba­sed on the mis­si­on com­mand gi­ven by Je­sus. Those who be­lie­ved in Je­sus were gi­ven the task of brin­ging the gos­pel to all parts of the world. The cong­re­ga­ti­on cal­ls ser­vants of the word from among its mem­bers. It is their task to pre­ach the word of God on the ba­sis of the Bib­le.

In his let­ter to the Co­los­si­ans Paul war­ned of the dan­gers of sin and wan­ted to cla­ri­fy the Co­los­si­ans’ faith in Je­sus Christ so they would re­cei­ve the po­wer to live a life in ac­cor­dan­ce with God’s will.

Co­rinth was a busy city where life was world­ly. The Lord ap­pe­a­red to Paul in a dream and ex­hor­ted him to pre­ach the word of God bold­ly in Co­rinth.

The gre­a­test in the king­dom of he­a­ven

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.21

Je­sus had told his dis­cip­les for the first time about the great suf­fe­ring that was awai­ting him. He would have to go to Je­ru­sa­lem and suf­fer hor­rib­ly in the hands of the el­ders, high priests, and la­wy­ers. He would be kil­led, but on the third day he would rise from the dead. Je­sus’ words made the dis­cip­les sad. It seems stran­ge that, soon af­ter this, the dis­cip­les as­ked Je­sus: ”Who is the gre­a­test in the king­dom of he­a­ven?”

God’s will to­ward man is good

The old Chris­ti­an Doct­ri­ne says in ac­cor­dan­ce with the Bib­le: ”God, who has cre­a­ted us, has inst­ruc­ted us to obey his will in our li­ves. God has made his holy will known to us in his law. God’s law re­qui­res us to be truth­ful, righ­te­ous, and pure in thoughts, words, and deeds.” God’s good will is the law of life, me­ant to pro­tect the life cre­a­ted by him and all things that are holy and pre­ci­ous in it. God wants all pe­op­le to pos­sess eter­nal life.

God ma­ni­fests Him­self

Man has ne­ver been ab­le to re­ach God and His gre­at­ness through his own un­ders­tan­ding. The Old Tes­ta­ment prop­het Isai­ah wri­tes:”Ve­ri­ly thou art a God that hi­dest thy­self, O God of Is­ra­el, the Sa­vi­our” (Isai­ah 45:15). Isai­ah al­so wri­tes: “For my thoughts are not yo­ur thoughts, neit­her are yo­ur ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the he­a­vens are hig­her than the earth, so are my ways hig­her than yo­ur ways, and my thoughts than yo­ur thoughts” (Isai­ah 55:8–9).

The Triu­ne God

The Bib­le is the book of sal­va­ti­on, and it’s cent­ral mes­sa­ge is the proc­la­ma­ti­on of Je­sus Christ and the re­demp­ti­on pre­pa­red by Him. The Bib­le al­so tel­ls what God is like and how He works.

Apost­le Paul was fa­mi­li­ar with the con­tem­po­ra­ry cul­tu­re and the va­lue that was pla­ced on sport. Sin­ce he knew that no­ti­ons of com­pe­ti­ti­on were pre­va­lent in pe­op­le’s thoughts, he of­ten com­pa­red the life of a Chris­ti­an to the run­ning of a race. He al­so wan­ted to show that the sig­ni­fi­can­ce and des­ti­na­ti­on of the en­de­a­vor in faith are much gre­a­ter than any at­tain­ment of tem­po­ral go­als.

God, Cre­a­tor of the world

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.10

Ac­cor­ding to the Apos­to­lic Creed, God is the Cre­a­tor of the he­a­ven and the earth. The first ver­se of the Bib­le exp­res­ses this simp­ly and cle­ar­ly: ”In the be­gin­ning God cre­a­ted the he­a­ven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1).
