Good Christian Morals

What are some good morals?

Hebrews chapter 13 is a moral code, it teaches how believers should carry/conduct themselves.

Verse 1 says, "Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters." And verse 2 says, “Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!" Verse 3, begins with "remember..."

Now here is the message; keep on loving, show hospitality and remember those in prison, and those mistreated.

Is there really a standard moral code in church these days? 

Yes there is, and while each country has its own laws, believers follow the laws of God, but as Christians we also abide by certain social mores, which are governed by morals. While morals tend to be driven by personal beliefs and values, there are certainly some common morals, Christian ethical behaviours, that most believers agree on, such as found here in scripture;

  • Give honour to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery, Hebrews 13:4.
  • Don't love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, "I will never fail you. I will never abandon you." Hebrews 13:5
  • Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith, Hebrews 13:7.
  • Do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God's grace, not from rules...." Hebrews 13:9
  • Don't forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God, Hebrews 13:16.
  • Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit, Hebrews 13:17.
  • Pray, even for us.

Here are some of the mores found in scripture; always tell the truth, have courage, keep your promises, do not cheat, treat others as you want to be treated, be dependable, be forgiving, have integrity, take responsibility for your actions, have patience, be loyal, have respect for yourself and others, be tolerant of differences, seek justice, have humility, be generous, and the list goes on.

"Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen" Hebrews 13:20-21.

The gospel of Christ!

The gospel of God, is that which pertains to His Son Jesus Christ, through him we have received grace and apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith to all.

Our service is rendered to God, whom we serve by our spirits telling the good news about his Son.

Preaching the gospel is all manner of witnessing and imparting spiritual gifts on God’s people, the believers, the called of Jesus Christ, who are called to be saints. That method of believing is called faith, and mutual faith when we together believe.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:16-17.

The gospel of God is that which concerns His Son. God can be known only through the gospel of Christ, and that which may be known of God has now been made manifest in us; for God r…

Partakers of Christ's sufferings!

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy" 1 Peter 4:12-13

It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian, instead it is a privilege, folks. For "if ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified" 1 Peter 4:14.

Suffer according to God's will, not "as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters" 1 Peter 4:15.  But do what is right folks, and trust yourself to God who made you, for he will never fail you.

"The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: …

Melchizedek

Melchizedek was king of the city of Salem and also a priest of the Most High God. His name means King of Justice, King of righteousness and King of peace.

Life story 

Melchizedek had no father or mother and there is no record of any of his ancestors. He was never born and he never died but his life is like that of the Son of God - a priest forever. We learn from his life story that a priest’s other job is to bless those who have promises, (ref: Hebrews 7:6). Have we got any promise? Yes loads, and among others we’ve the promise of salvation.

Anyway, I said Melchizedek’s life is like that of the Son of God - a priest forever.  After the Levitical priesthood God sends a new kind of priest, and we can plainly see that God's method changed, for Christ, the new High Priest who came with the rank of Melchizedek, as we all know, Christ did not belong to the priest-tribe of Levi, but came from the tribe of Judah, which had not been chosen for priesthood; Moses had never given them that wo…
