Transcript: These examples are ways we can honor God and keep a good relationship with him. They can pray to God before they go to bed, as a way of telling God their emotions and thoughts and to give God an opportunity to speak to them and comfort them when they need it. Another example of how people can live in a good relationship with God is that they can not use His name in swearing or cursing. Not swearing with His name honors God while swearing with His name dishonors and pushes away God. Living by these examples follows principles that are seen in the Bible. Bible Says Detail 3 Topic Principles Detail 2 These examples are ways we can honor God and keep a good relationship with him. They can pray to God before they go to bed, as a way of telling God their emotions and thoughts and to give God an opportunity to speak to them and comfort them when they need it. Another example of how people can live in a good relationship with God is that they can not use His name in swearing or cursing. Not swearing with His name honors God while swearing with His name dishonors and pushes away God. Living by these examples follows principles that are seen in the Bible. The Bible says that we should “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment” (New International Version, Matthew 22:37-38). This verse tells us that we should love God, as simply as that, to love God with our entire being. Not only does God want us to love him but he also wants us to honor him. Exodus 20:7 says, “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.” God doesn’t want us to use his name wrong, and he wants us to honor him as our creator and father. God gave us these ideas of how to have a good relationship with him as a way to restore the broken relationships that were a result of sin. By respecting God and having a good relationship with Him we are restoring a piece of Shalom in the world, trying to make the world a better place. Some principles that are based off of the examples mentioned earlier are that you should love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. We should love God like that always. Another principle that we should live by, if we want to imitate Christ’s example is to always trust God’s will no matter the circumstance or what you want to do. We need to fully trust God even if it means ending our life on earth and going to heaven. One last principle that we should live by in a Christian lifestyle is to keep in touch with God, and to honor him by using his name correctly, and praying to him. These principles are based off of what Jesus set as an example in the Bible. These examples are ways we can honor God and keep a good relationship with him. They can pray to God before they go to bed, as a way of telling God their emotions and thoughts and to give God an opportunity to speak to them and comfort them when they need it. Another example of how people can live in a good relationship with God is that they can not use His name in swearing or cursing. Not swearing with His name honors God while swearing with His name dishonors and pushes away God. Living by these examples follows principles that are seen in the Bible. Detail 4 How to Live Detail 1 Specific Examples Jesus says in Luke 22:42, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Jesus loved God so much that he trusted him beyond all else, he even trusted God with his life when he died on the cross. Luke 5:16 says, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” This means that Jesus was often in touch with God and honored him and his will. Jesus based his lifestyle off of the Old Testament laws and ideas of how to live in a good relationship with God.
