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 troubled ab…

Spirits are subject to you!

In Luke 10, Jesus sends seventy others, two by two into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.He said to them go your way; "And heal the sick there, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'’ Luke 10:9 They came back thrilled and excited. This is the same experience we should have when we give out the Word of God, and when we pray for the sick and heal them. How glorious we feel also when more labourers are come into His harvest!Luke said, "the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." And He said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven." Luke 10:17-20.Satan’s new home is t…

The sign of Jonah

And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, He began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet, Luke 11:29 NKJV.Jesus looked at our generation and concluded; This is an evil generation. A profoundly immoral and wicked generation; very ungodly, sinful, corrupt, demonic and shocking because it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.It seeks a sign, meaning that they thought what Jesus was doing was funfair, circus or some form of joke or entertainment. It’s a generation that never took the things of God serious for themselves."Others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from heaven" Luke 11:16. They cross-examined Him about many things, but He said no sign will be given to [this generation] except the sign of Jonah the prophet.Paul bemoaned how the Corinthians sought for proof of Christ speaking in him. He said, "I pray to God that you…
