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.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
