Jesus, the King of the universe, asked us to learn and do everything He taught (Matthew 28:19-20). It was the last thing He said before ascending to heaven (Luke 24:51), being the Great Commission for all believers. The best way to fulfill this is to personally read the Bible, starting with the New Testament and then reading the Old Testament (John 17:17). To help with interpretation, we also provide a list of articles that explain what God’s Word has to say about every topic in the world. Instead of reading every page in order, we encourage you to save this page and read specific topics whenever you are struggling to answer a problem in your life.

Confidence before God

Doing God’s Will

Discover why God created you.

Purpose

The purpose of life, the reason we were created, is to do good works (Ephesians 2:8-9,10) in perfect submission to the law. This is accomplished by love (Romans 13:8,9,10) from actions and truth (I John 3:18).

Matthew 6:33; Ephesians 4:15; James 2:26;  James 1:27; Ecclesiastes 12:13, Micah 6:8; 2 Greatest Commandments; Good=Truth & Works=Love

Good Works

proves real faith (James 2:24), shown to others (Matthew 5:14-16; James 2:18) as a personal example (I Corinthians 11:1) without boasting (Proverbs 27:2), by faith not law (Romans 3:27), balancing joy and helping others (attach article), all done in excellence (Romans 12:2)

Reconciliation and Restoration

can’t offer gift (really spiritual gift) if you’re unreconciled; living in harmony; restoration happens after atonement, or making up for one’s sins

Spiritual Gifts

Each Christian is given a different manifestation of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 12:7) for the purpose of working together in unity (I Peter 4:10). Learn more about spiritual gifts.

Unity

Eagerly seek to unify with other Christians (Ephesians 4:2-3) who share the same definition of the Gospel of Salvation (Titus 3:3-11) and deity of Jesus (I John 4:2-3). Read more…

Discipleship

Ultimately the greatest work we can do is to lead other people to serve Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). There is no greater deed than leading someone to say they are sorry for their sins (Luke 15:7). Always remember that for any good work that you do, it doesn’t matter if many people are coming to your church or if many people like you. If they don’t eventually commit their life to Jesus, your work is in vain (Galatians 4:9,11).

Decision-making

Every major decision in your life must be based on God’s will, and knowing that is about having the peace of God (Philippians 4:6-7).

Family

How do I treat my family? How do I honor evil parents? Do I have to respect them?

Work & Money

Some believe that the only work that matters is discipleship and ministry, but God said that we are created for good works (Ephesians 2:10), the primary objective being to take care of the earth (Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:15).

Judgment & Condemnation

Emotions

Ekman’s 6 base emotions: happiness (Philippians 4:4; James 4:9), sadness (James 4:9; Revelation 21:4), disgust, surprise, anger (Ephesians 4:26), and fear (Proverbs 1:7; I John 4:18) are inherently healthy, but can be used for good or excess can become evil.
