Why We're Here

It's estimated there are almost three billion people in our generation who are still un-reached with the Gospel Message of Salvation through Jesus Christ. And it is estimated that there will be over one billion people online in the world by the end of the year. In North America alone, nearly 2/3 of the adults who use the Internet will use it for faith related matters. Just as the Roman roads opened up the known world during the New Testament times to the spread of the Gospel, today the Internet is providing a way to take the Gospel around the world in a very effective way. Our vision is to use this new Roman road to help Christians around the world grow in their faith and increase their knowledge and understanding of the Bible.

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 Friday, August 01, 2014

God Promises He Can Strengthen Us and Helps Us - (Habakkuk 3:19)

I will strengthen you with feet like a deer so you can reach great heights.


Reading Notes

God strengthens and blesses His people. The Lord is our strength in times of trouble. When all else fails us, when our plans fail us, when man fails us God is there for us because He is true to His children. Our confidence is in the Lord! God will not let us be destroyed and He will be there beside us, the Holy Spirit will never forsake us during trials. Just as the deer is sure footed when running through the forest, we too can be sure-footed as we walk up the steep hills of our trials. The imagery is meant to show us the confidence and surety we have in Christ our Lord.

God has promised us He will not give us more than we can bear, though sometimes we're not sure how much we can bear. However because of His love for us, because of what Jesus did for us and because of our faith in Him we can trust that the Lord will lift us out of depths and place on His high hills. Though we know we will face trials and loss in this life because Jesus told us we would have tribulation. The Lord also promised He is with us, He will not leave us nor forsake us. And when this life is over we will forever be with Him!

We Rely on the Holy Spirit

Bible Verse 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.

Commentary:

The focus of Paul's teaching and the focus of Paul's life was Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Paul poured out his heart to this church as he expounded the whole counsel of God to the Corinthians. Paul taught the Corinthian church the word of God, in an environment known for its bad behavior. During this time if someone were to behave in promiscuous manner, or have drunken celebrations the people would say they were corinthianizing. The behavior of the people of this city had become so immoral and so abase that the city's name had become synonymous with such behavior.

Yet through the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit Paul brought these people to faith in Christ. And as Paul states here, he did not rely on his looks because he was not a handsome or tall man, he did not rely on his speech because was actually said not to be a great orator. He relied on the Holy Spirit and the power of Jesus Christ and His crucifixion which reconciled sinful man to a Holy God. Thereby giving us this example of how we through the power of the Holy Spirit are to spread the Good News of Jesus and the price He paid for us that we may be redeemed back to a Holy God.

Jesus Died That We May Live Forever

Romans 5:6-8

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Through Christ We Are Reconciled to God

Romans 5:8-10

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

It's God who Blesses Us

1st Corinthians 3:6-7

I [Paul] planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

Do Not Weary of Doing Good

Galatians 6:9-10

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Christ is Strong in Our Weakness

2nd Corinthians 12:10

That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Charity Out of Love for Christ, Not Recognition from the World

Matthew 6:3-4

But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.

Christ Our Only Source of Salvation

Acts 4:10,12

Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

God's Will is We All Come to Christ

Ezekiel 33:11

As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, "I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live."

Do Good to Those Who Hate You

Matthew 5:44-45

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Be Anxious for Nothing

Philippians 4:6-7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Seeking God's Will

Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Year of Proverbs
for Friday, August 01, 2014

God's Wisdom and Fear of the Lord Brings Blessings - (Proverbs 24:3-4)

Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; By knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.


Reading Notes

Here a house refers to not just the physical dwelling place, but also one’s life, one’s family and one’s career and way in the world. In addition wisdom gained from God's word and the fear of the Lord is tempered always by our love for God and desire to follow His will. Therefore the end result is a rich and blessed life, rich in the things of God and joy that comes from a close relationship with God through Christ.

A wealth and blessings not dependent on the things of this world or the material possessions of mankind. Moreover a life built on the fear of the Lord brings with it blessings in our families as mercy, compassion and grace instructed to us by the Holy Spirit governs our family relationships. And finally a life built on the fear of the Lord brings joy, peace and comfort knowing we are secure in Christ Jesus our Lord and the eternity which awaits us.

Year of Psalms
for Friday, August 01, 2014

In Trust We Wait Upon the Lord, Thru Trust We Persevere - (Psalm 25:20-21)

Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.


Reading Notes

Jesus is our faithful shepherd and we are the flock of His pasture. Jesus is our Redeemer and we are His kinsman redeemed by His blood shed for us. Jesus is almighty God, and nothing can take us out of the hands of our God. Jesus alone has the power to deliver us, the power to keep us and preserve us and because of Him we can persevere through the power of the Holy Spirit who indwells us.

Ours is by faith to place our trust in Him, and Jesus knows that is no small thing for us because of our sin nature. We fight our flesh on a daily basis, our sins desire to keep control and walk in worldly lusts; however do not fight alone or by our own might. Jesus our faithful Redeemer has equip us with heavenly instruments of war to fight the good fight and persevere. His arsenal includes His righteousness, His word, His grace and salvation, His truth and His might. Jesus has already won the victory, ours is to stick by His side until we arrive home to celebrate.

Bible Principle for Today
for Friday, August 01, 2014

God is in control always and forever so our hearts should be focused on Him and the things of God, which means anything we hold too tightly and cherish more than God we often will loose.

Prayer for Today
for Friday, August 01, 2014

Yes, dear Father, I believe that this Jesus who hung on the cross for my sin is your Son! In his name, and to your glory, I thank you. Amen.
