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.

Jesus is Rejected at Nazareth!

Then Jesus left the wilderness of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days, and " returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. " Luke 4:14-16 NKJV. Before, full of the Holy Spirit, he spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, and now he returns to Galilee, in the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. He taught in other synagogues, being glorified by all, but here in Nazareth, where He was brought up, is rejected. They handed to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To

Who are you really working for?

I’m here to help you figure out who you’re really working for, because if you know you will provide great service for him/her, or them, no matter what you do, you need to know who they are and what they’re looking for. Someone is saying I am working for God, but that could be a blanket statement my friend because working for God means feeding His lambs, and is how you offer His sheep the best service possible. For some of us it is more clear cut than for others. I can’t tell you who you are working for, it would be wrong to assume that you’re serving God, men or yourself, etc, but I can help you identify who you’re really working for, and how you can do it with all of your heart if you find it well. Why we serve! We serve God for different reasons, but the work of the Lord couldn’t be same as the work of men or of the world. His is light, with no darkness at all - pure religion! The angel said to the church in Thyatira, “‘ These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of

The Wedding at Cana

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him, John 2:11 KJV. The first time Jesus performed a miracle (revealed his glory) was at a wedding in Cana. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. Wine ran out, and Jesus' mother told him, " They have no more wine ." She went to him anticipating a miracle, and Jesus said, " Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come " John 2:4. But she tells the servants anyway, " Whatever He says to you, do it ."  This you should also know my friend, tell him your need anyway, and " Do whatever he tells you ." But be fully aware of the divine timing also. The timing by which waters are stirred up or the spirit moves is set by the Father. Jesus said to them, " Fill the waterpots with water. " And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, " Dr
