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 Thursday, November 27, 2014

God Promises He Will Supply Our Needs for Life - (Matthew 6:11, 31-34)

I will provide what you need every day.


Reading Notes

One of the hardest things for us to do in our modern world today, is to not worry. We worry about our jobs, our family, our income, our daily needs and our future. For a lot of us we make worry the main focus of our lives, we base our entire lives on being prepared for those things we are worried about. However Jesus tells us not to do that, instead we are to place our trust on Him for our salvation and for our daily needs.

Now this doesn't mean to stop working and taking care of our families, but what it does mean is not to make worry and controlling every aspect of our lives the soul focus of our existence. Do not worry on planning and controlling every little detail. Why? Because God is in charge, and God is on control and when we stop worrying and we stop controlling then we have time to hear the Holy Spirit and follow His direction for our lives. A direction more often than not doesn't match our plans for the future.

Advent Day 26: Christmas Day, Oh Holy Night

Bible Verse Luke 2:10-14, 7

Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men." She brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Commentary:

This was the night when heaven came to earth! On this holy night, the first Christmas night a heavenly multitude welcomed in the incarnation. This was the moment in human history when God came to earth and dwelt amoung us. This was the one moment in time, the point in all of human history when our Savior Christ the Lord became our gift given directly to us from God the Father. And it is because of this gift given to us that we can truly say, "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men."

With the birth of Jesus the world witnessed the greatest miracle and the beginning of Christmas. In the most humble of circumstances the greatest miracle and gift to mankind took place. Jesus the second person of the Trinity, the creator of all things, who was with God, who was God, became the incarnate god-man Jesus. Christ who was fully God and fully human, loosing none of His divinity walked amoung men, lived a sinless life and died for us. His death on the cross reconciled us back to a Holy God for all those who accept Him as their Lord and Savior. His resurrection three days later proved He was who He claimed to be, God in the flesh.

But why did Jesus come and why did Jesus have to die? Knowing the answer to this question means understanding that we received the greatest gift, God Himself. All men have sinned and as the Bible tells us, "All have sinned, all fall short of the glory of God." There is no one righteous, there is no one who can earn their way to heaven, not then, not now, not ever. There is no amount of work anyone can ever do that will earn them salvation. And that is why Jesus came to save us. It's only through the death of Jesus at the Cross and our acceptance of Him as our Lord and Savior that we can be saved. Our salvation is a gift given by God Himself on that very first Christmas.

Selected Bible Verse

Our Selected Daily Bible Verse is made up of selected Bible verses usually consisting of 2-4 verses from all parts of the Bible meant to encourage and build us up as we walk in faith.

 

Pursue Righteousness, Faith, Love, Peace

2nd Timothy 2:22-23

Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.

As Servants of Christ We Strive for Gentleness

2nd Timothy 2:24-26

And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

Jesus is Out Shelter and Our Tower

Psalm 61:2-4

From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

God Searches and Knows Our Hearts

Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

We Have Eternal Life in Christ

1st John 5:13-14

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Counting the Cost and Following Christ

Luke 14:27-30

And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.

We Live By Faith in Jesus

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

All Fall Short; But Christ Saves

Romans 3:22-23, 6:23, 10:11-13, 10:9

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and [all] fall short of the glory of God, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. ...for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Stay Strong in Christ, Do Not Reject the Gospel

Hosea 4:6-7

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.

We Too Should Count the Cost

Luke 14:28

But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?

We are the Light, Shinning the Gospel to Others

Matthew 5:14-15

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Year of Proverbs
for Thursday, November 27, 2014

God Has Equipped Each of Us For Good Work - (Proverbs 14:23)

In all labor there is profit, But idle chatter leads only to poverty.


Reading Notes

The Lord has created every one of us in the image of God. Each with a heart, mind and soul. Moreover each of us are unique and special in the eyes of God. He has prepared each and every one us for a special work. When we use our God given talents and abilities to earn a living, to support ourselves and our families we honor God. And when we waste those talents and abilities God has given us and pursue after worldly lust then we dishonor God and we are in rebellion toward God.

God has created each and every one us to contribute to society in a positive, godly way. When we use our God given abilities to provide for ourselves and help others we fulfill the purposes God has intended us for. When we help those in need and spread the Gospel to those who are lost, we profit the kingdom of God. We bring joy to the heart of the Lord who created us. Moreover we profit not only here and now through our joy in Christ; but also in the life to come! Because we profit in the rewards waiting for us at the Bema Seat of Christ.

Year of Psalms
for Thursday, November 27, 2014

God Will Make a Way for His Elect - (Psalm 32:6)

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him.


Reading Notes

David is praising God and telling all of us what he has learned through personal experience and time with God. That is God is faithful! And all people who come before His grace shall be saved. Like a flood people all around the world in every nation are coming to faith in Christ.

In many non-western countries people are experiencing God given visions of the risen Christ and as a result they are coming to faith in Jesus. Even when man has no way, God will make a way to bring His elect to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Bible Principle for Today
for Thursday, November 27, 2014

Jesus is the creator and sustainer of life, everything was created through Him and by Him, everything we have is a gift from God; therefore we can never give more than God, we must never forget God is in debt to no one.

Prayer for Today
for Thursday, November 27, 2014

O God, my Abba Father, I know that I need Jesus and his presence in my life. Please protect me from the things that Satan intends to use to block my path to your Son and my Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen .
