“I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
No one can escape the influence of society around us. We all share its language, traditions and customs. . When we receive Jesus as our saviour and accept him as our Lord, our new faith changes our behaviour. We find that the Lord approves of some of the moral values that we have learnt in the society we live in, but that He will change others.
How can we know how we should behave as a disciple of Christ? What we should do and what should we not do? Where can we find the strength to put into practise our convictions?
In these courses we are not trying to say what we should do, or not do, in the face of every possible situation. Rather we want to show how a believer in Christ can use the principles Christ left us in His word, the Bible, to make responsible decisions in his or her daily life. The study of these principles and how to apply them to our lives is called “Christian Ethics.” Each one of us is called to learn God’s principles and to discern, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the counsel of our faith community, how to boldly take action that best honours Christ in each new situation.
