Christian Ingredients for Daily Life

Deuteronomy 6:5; Mark 12:30

Contained within the core of a Christian is the deep ability to impact others in a transformative and transfigured fashion. Christ refers to the powerful essence as being the Salt of the Earth and Light of the World. Through the work of God and installation of the Holy Spirit, the Christian saint is equipped with tremendous power. To make supreme in terms of use, what God has given His elect, optimal capacity must be employed. Moses and Christ spoke of similar tenets regarding how one must live as an effective Christian. Moses said, “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deuteronomy 6:5). Jesus also articulated, “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment” (Mark 12:30)          

Through the words of Moses and Christ a few ingredients are revealed through the concepts of logos, ethos, and pathos. All of the aforementioned conceptions can help describe the essence of Christian praxis. From a Christian or biblical perspective logos is the incarnate Word of God through Christ (John 1:1). Thus logos for the Christian, is the bread of life that must be consumed for proper calculation and execution in Christ. Ethos can be described as the character of the Christian that speaks to his or her influence upon others. It is about more than pontificating a relationship with Christ, it is about living a sacrificial life for Him. When Christian ethos is legitimate, the Christian is seen as valued and worthy of being able to speak about Christ because of how they live. Ethos is that which is exuded toward another out disposition and character.

Logos and ethos remain connected because logos is the source of a proper and effective ethos. Christians truly admired by other saints generally have a powerful and infectious ethos or disposition in Christ like that of Paul. When logos and ethos properly function within the life of a Christian, a lasting result is the impact of pathos upon others. Pathos is the essence of life that evokes emotion and touches the souls of others. Through logos and ethos, Christians are able to transform the world (touch the world) through their pathos. Study the ingredients and remember, You are the clay In The Potter’s Hands. God has paved a way to save you today!
