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 Tuesday, October 21, 2014

God Promises We Can Trust in Christ Alone - (Psalm 56:11)

Trust in Me, and do not be afraid of what others can do to you.


Reading Notes

Through Jesus we are saved and going to Heaven! Because of what Jesus did for us our salvation is assured! Therefore what can others do to us? Though the enemy can put us through trials, though we may lose our life, there is nothing the enemy can do to hinder our salvation. There is nothing the enemy can do to take away our eternity guaranteed by Jesus. Therefore when God sees us through the storm and we come through the trial we shall praise His Holy name.

And when we breathe our last here on earth and awake in Heaven we shall praise His name all the more greatly. Dear Christian lock this truth deep in your heart! The things of this world are passing away, there is nothing of man that will last; but we have eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. And there is no power in Hell, and no power here with man that can overcome the sovereignty of our Lord. God is in control and He resides with us daily.

Preparing with God's Armor Part III

Bible Verse Ephesians 6:18-20

Being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Commentary:

Paul closes this section of scripture with a final word on prayer, which along with the word of God is one of our primary weapons. Paul explains we are to pray for one another, pray for all the saints, pray for the lost and pray for those in need. As a matter of fact Paul goes on to tell us we are not only to pray, but to do so often as to be in continual prayer. We do so remembering our ability to pray fervently is enabled within us by the Holy Spirit who indwells us. Also it is the Holy Spirit who makes intercession for us when we pray.

Prayer is so important to the life of a Christian that it is to permeate our entire being. Paul emphasizes prayer so much in this passage that he tells us we are to be with all prayer and perseverance, praying at all times. Moreover we should note, Paul is writing this letter from a prison cell where he is being held for preaching the Gospel of Christ and yet he does not ask for prayer for his health or circumstances, instead he ask for prayer in order to speak as he should to spread the good news of salvation in Jesus name.

Jesus, Our Comfort in Troubled Times

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

The Joy of the Spreading the Gospel

The Holy Spirit's Work in Our Hearts

Hebrews 10:24–25

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Heaven Rejoices Over Every Believer

Luke 15:7

I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

Know the Signs of the Times

Matthew 16:3

You know how to interpret the weather signs in the sky, but you don't know how to interpret the signs of the times!

In the Last Days People Will Scoff God

2nd Peter 3:3-4

"Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. They will say, 'What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.'"

Time of Christ is at Hand

Romans 13:11

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

We Rely on the Holy Spirit

1st Corinthians 2:1-2

And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Knowledge of Christ is Our Blessing

I delight to do Your will, O my God, And Your law is within my heart. I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth From the great assembly.

Our Actions Should Glorify God

Ephesians 5:17-18

Don't act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Year of Proverbs
for Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The Heart of the Wicked is Devoid of Understanding - (Proverbs 12:11-12)

He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread, But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding. The wicked covet the catch of evil men, But the root of the righteous yields fruit.


Reading Notes

These two verses contrast well the behavior and thinking between the honest man and the wicked fool. The honest man, the righteous man is shown as living a simple hard working life. He is satisfied with the fruits of his labor and he lives with fear of the Lord. This means the honest man loves the Lord and has a deep down reverence, awe and respect for God. Whereas the wicked man does not and will do anything to avoid honest labor or hard work of a good nature. The wicked man will scheme and plan to get something he does not deserve and follow after evil men who do the same.

Here frivolity means to expend energy in worthless pursuits. To chase foolishness in a direct effort to avoid making an honest living and to commit evil acts in order to take what does not belong to them. Therefore the wicked hate honest work almost as much as they hate God. They will do what they can to fool others in order to hide their wicked ways and their heart full of hate. In addition they covet the gain of evil men like themselves. And in the end the wicked are destroyed and amount to nothing and God will exalt the righteous who have placed their faith in Him.

Year of Psalms
for Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Therefore God Shall Judge All Evil Rulers - (Psalm 82:6-8)

I said, "You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes." Arise, O God, judge the earth; For You shall inherit all nations.


Reading Notes

Jesus quoted this passage "You are gods" in John 10:34 when referring to human rulers and leaders. That is because kings and judges are ultimately setup by God who lends authority to rulers to ensure the orderly and godly functioning of society. Like priests they are to be God's representatives here on earth ensuring God's justice and mercy is given out to all people fairly and without bias. However when they rebel against the Lord and refuse to act as a godly leader God may revoke this authority at any time.

And because they are mortal they may suffer death while in their rebellion against God. This section of psalms then ends with a prayer for God's judgment on the whole earth as well as a foreshadowing of the day when Jesus shall inherit and rule over all nations. And it's important to see that all people; those in power as spoken of here and those who are not will be held responsible by God for what He has given us. How we used our blessings, on whom did we use them and what we did for others with the time, talents and resources God has blessed us with.

Bible Principle for Today
for Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Jesus is the head of the church and we are His body, we must never forget the fruit of our labor is often meant for others, and fellowship is a gift and no child of God was ever called to "go it alone" in their walk with the Lord.

Prayer for Today
for Tuesday, October 21, 2014

O Father, please give me the courage to be loyal to Jesus no matter which way the crowd goes.
