God's Gift of Grace to Us

Everyone has sinned, everyone at one point or another has done something or thought something they're not proud of; something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. That is what Salvation is all about. God wants to have a relationship with you and He gave you a way to receive forgiveness from all sins past, present and future!

We know we are not perfect! Though try as we might no one can achieve perfection all or even most of the time, and God knows that! And that's why He gave us the gift of salvation through the forgiveness of sins. As the Bible says "For by grace you are saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, Not by works lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8,9)

Daily Bible Promises
for Wednesday, August 27, 2014

God Promises He Will Bring Everlasting Justice - (Psalm 103:6)

I will provide justice for everyone who is mistreated.


Reading Notes

The Lord is righteous and He is just and therefore God will bring justice. We live in the church age, this is a time when God has shown us His grace through Christ Jesus our Lord. This means we live in a time when our sins, the injustices that we commit, can all be forgiven us and we can be made clean through Jesus because of the blood He shed for us on the cross. Grace is when we accept Jesus and the sacrifice He made for our sins. Through grace God washes away our sins because of the blood Jesus shed for us.

And because of this God is longsuffering, as He pours out His Holy Spirit on mankind to change our hearts in order that we may accept Christ and inherit the free gift of salvation. However this time is quickly coming to a close. And when it does God will begin a period where His judgment will come. A time period where the deserved punishment for man's sins will be poured out on an un-repented world. Therefore knowing that God's justice will come and the time of Christ is at hand, we should strive to know and live in Christ during these last days.

You Were Called, Because Christ Suffered For Us

Bible Verse 1st Peter 2:21-25

For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: Who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth; who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness-by whose stripes you were healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Commentary:

We live in a fallen world. A world at enmity against God, a world in conflict with Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore since this world hated and reviled Him, how much more will we endure because of our faith in Christ. A world which hates God so much will also passionately hate the people of God as well. Jesus came to take away our sins. He bore some of the vilest behavior and torture a person can experience as well as death on the cross. Yet He did so without deceit, without hatred, with only love for those killing Him, not reviling and never once sinning in thought or deed. Jesus the very God of the universe stepped out of eternity and took on flesh.

He did this in order to be our perfect sacrifice. Jesus is our propitiation for sin. That means He alone fully paid the price for all of our sins past, present and future that we a sinful humanity may be reconciled back to God. By His stripes, by His blood shed for us we have been saved through faith Him and not by works. There is nothing a sinful person can do to atone for their sins. There is nothing a sinful person can do to add to what Christ went through. And there are no religious acts that can wipe away our sins. Therefore what's impossible for man is possible only for God. And that is why Jesus had to step out of eternity and take on flesh, that through Him alone we may be saved to the glory of God the Father.

Do Not Be Troubled, Jesus is the Way

John 14:1-5,6

Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know... Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Your Treasures Follow Your Heart

Matthew 6:19-21,24

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Faith is More Precious than Gold

1st Peter 1:6-9

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith-the salvation of your souls.

Jesus Our Eternal King and Chief Cornerstone

1st Timothy 1:14-15, Acts 4:11-12

And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. This is the stone which was rejected by the builders, which has become the chief cornerstone. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

God is Long-suffering, Not Wanting Any to Perish

2nd Peter 3:8-9

Beloved, do not forget that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, but is longsuffering not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. The Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; Therefore, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for the coming of the day of God.

The Lord is My Tabernacle

Psalm 27:4-6

One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

If God is For Us, Who Can Come Against Us

Romans 8:28-31

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Our Freedom is in Jesus Alone

John 8:30-32, 34-36

As He spoke these words, many believed in Him. Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Abide in Jesus, Abide in Truth

John 15:4-7,9

Abide in Me, and I [will abide] in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 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. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

God Chooses the Foolish to Shame the Wise

1st Corinthians 1:27-31

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption that, as it is written, He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.

Everlasting Life in the Only Begotten Son of God

John 3:16-18

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Year of Proverbs

God Judges Individuals and Nations Who Abandon Him - (Proverbs 30:11-14)

There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother. There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, Yet is not washed from its filthiness. There is a generation-oh, how lofty are their eyes And their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And whose fangs are like knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.


Reading Notes

"There is a generation" can be translated also as "there are those who" and these sins listed above can not only destroy an individual, but they can also destroy an entire generations of people who practice them. Agur goes on to describe a self-righteous and prideful generation that hates parents, abandons traditions and destroys all that is placed in front of them from greed and pride. They are described in the end like wild animals devouring prey.

This is a generation who is righteous in its own eyes and interesting enough this was also the state of both the northern kingdom of Israel and later the southern kingdom of Judah before God sent them both into captivity. The northern kingdom was so bad they never returned, but the southern kingdom did return. And for us we have to understand that God will not hold an individual or a nation blameless who behave this way. When speaking of nations the Lord will often first warn with natural disasters, followed by attacks from enemies, and if that fails then God will bring greater judgments.

Year of Psalms

God Will Destroy Those Who in Wickedness Bring Ruin - (Psalm 55:9-11)

Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues, For I have seen violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go around it on its walls; Iniquity and trouble are also in the midst of it. Destruction is in its midst; Oppression and deceit do not depart from its streets.


Reading Notes

David was not attacked by an external enemy that he could see coming and thus prepare for, instead he was caught unawares by a close companion, someone part of his family or inner circle. However he is now seeing the results of their gossip, the desires of their hearts full of hatred and the destruction it brings upon the people.

For the wicked who perform these attacks do not concern themselves with only hurting their target; but also they desire damage to everyone around them. Their hatred grows as it is acted up because wickedness abounds in them. Here David is praying not only for deliverance; but also that God thwart their plans, like in the days of the Tower of Babel, that God would confuse their words and misconstrue their communication so it would have no effect.
