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)

God Promises to Deliver Us from Evil - (Psalm 97:10)

I will preserve your soul and deliver you from the wicked.


Reading Notes

Jesus has promised us that He will not lose anyone the Father has placed in His hands. The Bible is filled with promises that God preserves the souls of His children and though we may face trials here on earth, He is faithful to deliver us from evil. As believers we must remember we are sojourners here, our home is in Heaven.

In the meantime or joy is to fulfill the Fathers will, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit who indwells us and works through us. Once we accept Jesus wevery believer is indwelt by Holy Spirit who changes us from the inside out. And it is through the power of God is available in our lives to preserve us, guide us and build us into devoted followers of Christ.

Do Not Grieve the Holy Spirit Part I

Bible Verse Ephesians 4:25-32

Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another. "Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.

Commentary:

Paul throughout this chapter has been explaining to us that we are all one family, one body in Christ Jesus our Lord. And just as in our body we can become sick when one system behaves incorrectly so to the body of Christ can become ill when Christians behave incorrectly. Paul calls us in this section of scripture not to grieve the Holy Spirit. And when children of God behave badly it grieves the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer. Moreover it hinders the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in our ministry. Our actions can either build up the body of Christ or hinder the work of the body of Christ.

And when we behave in a manner unbecoming of a follower of Jesus we not only grieve the Holy Spirit, but we also hinder the work of the body, hurt our Christian witness and impugn the name of Christ amongst those who are lost. So the first thing Paul asks of us is to put away all falsehoods. Falsehoods include more than just lying, it includes exaggerations, adding false details to true events, gossiping falsely, cheating, withholding the truth to benefit ourselves or others, betraying a confidence and making false excuses. Basically any action where we use our mouth to lead people astray. Putting away these things is the first step and the most important step to becoming a new creation in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In the End Wickedness Will Not Prevail

Proverbs 14:31-32

He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker; But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy. The wicked is banished in his wickedness, But the righteous has a refuge in his death.

In God's Word there is Wisdom

Proverbs 14:33-34

Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding, But what is in the heart of fools is made known. Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.

A Wise Servant Does Well

Proverbs 14:35

The king's favor is toward a wise servant; But his wrath is against him who causes shame.

Cast Our Burdens on Christ

Psalm 55:22

Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Our Glory is in the Lord

Psalm 8:1,3-4

O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens... When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

Jesus Love is Displayed on the Cross

John 13:1

When Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.

Stay Firm in Jesus

Hebrews 3:12-14

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.

Strive to Know Christ and His Word

1st Timothy 4:1-2

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.

Souls Can Be Fed or Destroyed By What We Speak - (Proverbs 10:18-21)

Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool. In the multitude of words sin is not lacking; But he who restrains his lips is wise. The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom.


Reading Notes

Oh Lord if the Christian could only learn to tame the tongue! In all of mankind there has never been such a small part of our bodies that has caused so much trouble, chaos and misery as the tongue. More than any other part of our body the tongue reflects what's in our hearts. And it's the tongue that has caused much trouble for many of us, so it's no wonder that the Bible many times in both the Old and New Testaments warn us to tame our tongue. How many events have we witnessed in our own times where the famous have been brought down by the words they or others have spoken?

Dear Christian we need to truly understand, truly cultivate in our hearts the effect the tongue has on our witness of Jesus to others. More damage has been done by the body of Christ because our tongues than we can scarcely imagine. And more people have been saved because of the Gospel proclaimed by those who have learned to tame their tongues than we can count. Today once again we stand at a crossroads; we can use the mighty tongue to save souls or cause lost souls to wonder further into the darkness, the choice dear Christian lies with each of us.

Year of Psalms
for Sunday, April 20, 2014

The Holy Spirit Brings Us Strength, Because Jesus Restores Relationship - (Psalm 84:5-8)

Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob Selah


Reading Notes

Baca means "arid" or "dry place", it can also mean "weeping". The phrase Valley of Baca, was an arid dry place that brought suffering. The actual location is unknown, but the message is clear. The pilgrim on his way to worship God with his heart set on the Lord, has an overflowing joy and love in his heart which makes even this dry arid place seem like passing by a spring of water, or like spring time with the rain. And that even though the journey was difficult and the traveler was weary, the spirit of God would refresh and rejuvenate the pilgrim giving him energy and strength for the hour needed.

As we read through these wonderful passages we should not pass over the treasures hidden inside too quickly. There are important Biblical truths given to us in these verses. First the Lord is our strength and even when we are week emotionally and physically God can make us strong. And second because of what Jesus did for us and our faith in Him, we do not have to travel to a special place to worship God. We have the new covenant! Jesus has gained us access to come before God our heavenly Father at any time. Because we now through Jesus have a restored relationship with God. A relationship which was before our faith in Christ broken by sin.

Bible Principle for Today
for Sunday, April 20, 2014

We come to God through Christ alone, which gives us a oneness with God, the fruit of which is peace with God, which is the source of the joy in our hearts.

Prayer for Today
for Sunday, April 20, 2014

Almighty God, thank you for being willing to share yourself and your power with me through the Holy Spirit. Forgive me when I try to operate by my own timing, my own sense of sufficiency, and my own wisdom and plans. I recognize my deep need for the Holy Spirit to move in me, to empower me, and to equip me for your work in the world. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
