Think of the most famous New Testament commands for Christian living: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.   He is well known for writing his classic book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, which was originally published in , and then revised and expanded in to its present form. Don is also the author of the new book from Crossway titled, Praying the Bible. We’ll talk more about the new book later. Dr. Whitney, thank you for.

James deals with every area of our Christian life: who we are, what we do, what we say, what we feel, and what we have. A faith-filled life requires us to address each of these areas, and James gives us needed advice to experience the fullness of an active Christian life. Here are 10 lessons from the book of James on living out the Christian faith. Home - Online Archives.

Numbers - but we ourselves will go with diligence armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them to their place; and our little ones shall dwell in the strong cities because of the inhabitants of the land.   When it comes to overcoming life’s challenges, lessons from the life of Joseph are very important to learn. You can just imagine how Joseph would have received this punishment. After all, he did the right thing and he “deserves” to be fairly dealt with. Life is unfair. But God is always fair. This is the reality every Christian must face.

'Giving all diligence, add to your faith ' -- 2 Peter i It seems to me very like Peter that there should be so much in this letter about the very commonplace and familiar excellence of diligence. He over and over again exhorts to it as the one means to the attainment of all Christian graces, and of all the blessedness of the Christian life.

Diligence enable us to exercise our Christian faith to achieve God’s purpose in our lives. True faith gives us the diligence and the resolve to live a Christian life that is full of righteousness and love.

Our Christian diligence is our proof that we love God. Diligence gives us the assurance of our Christian calling and election. Get this from a library. Diligence in the Christian life necessary to be found in peace. A sermon occasioned by the death of the late Reverend Mr.

Diligence is seldom considered as a particular Christian attribute, but it is essential if we really desire to develop the other Christian virtues in our lives. They do not come by wishing or hoping. Peter also exhorts us to "give diligence to make your calling and election sure" (v), and then to "be diligent that ye may be found of Him in.

The meaning of diligence in the Bible is the same, though as we will see, there is also a spiritual aspect to diligence. What it takes to be diligent.

There is a lot in the definition of diligence, yet to some people it all simply means hard work. Without a doubt, hard work is. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

And Christian Life Resentment, Against People Roots Sanctification, Means beloved, since you look for these. "Patience is a virtue." We're all familiar with that cliché, and many of us know that patience is listed by Paul in Galatians as among the fruit of the Spirit.

So there's no disputing. Diligence is a quality of the disciples of Christ. One of the most important lessons we can learn from the disciples of Yahshua is diligence. This simple but practical lesson can easily be overlooked when you read the Gospels.

Nevertheless, it’s an important lesson for every person who wishes to become a follower of Christ. Diligence is the opposite of is the dedicated fervency God calls us to invest in each task that we perform.

“Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ” (Colossians –24).

Through His Son, Jesus Christ, God graciously provides believers with. It seems to me very like Peter that there should be so much in this letter about the very commonplace and familiar excellence of diligence.

He over and over again exhorts to it as the one means to the attainment of all Christian graces, and of all the blessedness of the Christian life.

1. 2 Peter And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge. Proverbs 3 Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Romans not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord.

JamesGod works according to laws. It is a natural law that if we humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand, surrendering our own will and honor, then He will give us the grace that we need to live a Christian life in truth, as well as exalt us in His time.

To be humble is. Why, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 2 Peter Also, believers must be committed to their earthly tasks so as to prosper on earth.

Diligence is one of God’s laid down principles as recorded in the scripture: The Bible reference “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do no give up.” (Galatians ESV) Pray the Prayer of Diligence.

It is also one of the most important attributes of a person. It is a heavenly gift that has been endowed upon a person. One must therefore feel privileged to have got it. Diligence is needed in all spheres of life as it is one of the key ingredients for success.

Those who use the sheer power of diligence, succeed in their goals surely. The married man is like the bee that fixes his hive, augments the world, benefits the republic, and by a daily diligence, without wronging any, profits all; but he who contemns wedlock, like a wasp, wanders an offence to the world, lives upon spoil and rapine, disturbs peace, steals sweets that are none of his own, and, by robbing the lives of others, meets misery as his due reward.

Romans A Call to Diligence If you have your Bible's I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter Let's remind ourselves where we've been in Romans chapter In verses 1 and 2, Paul sets forth a Magna Carta for Christian life.

It's a grand declaration. The reason for studying on diligence. As we study the Bible, we observe that there are some key words that God uses to express His thoughts. When God uses these words, especially in key areas of life, we should want to know what He is saying and study the subject matter.

Diligence is one of such important. Diligence is seldom considered as a particular Christian attribute, but it is essential if we really desire to develop the other Christian virtues in our lives.

They do not come by wishing or hoping. Peter also exhorts us to "give diligence to make your calling and election sure" (v. 10), and then to "be diligent that ye may be found of him. An angel foretold John's birth, indicating that he would have an important mission.

He was Jesus' cousin. John, the Apostle. Jesus' nickname for John the apostle was Boanerges, which means "sons of thunder." Jonah. No one knows if Jonah was a real person or if his life is just a story.Books About Diligence.
