God's Gift of Grace to Us!

Everyone has sinned, everyone has fallen short of the glory of God. All people at one point or another have done something or thought something they're not proud of, something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind those deeds. And that's what Salvation is all about. We are separated from God because of our sin nature. Moreover, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. Any sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. In addition, good works no matter how big the sacrifice, cannot erase or remove past sin.

But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you. And God's salvation is a free gift given by faith. And He gave you a way to receive forgiveness of all sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We all know that 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 which is 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, April 29, 2016

God Promises He Will Soon Crush Evil Under Foot - (Romans 16:20)

I will soon crush the evil one under your feet.


Reading Notes

This passage appears at the end of Paul's letter to the Roman church. Paul had just finished explaining the foundations of the Christian faith. And in this last section in particular Paul was explaining the practical application of Christian living. Paul concludes his letter with a benediction reminding them of God's promise which is Jesus Christ will crush Satan underfoot. What Paul means to say is if we have faith and trust in God. If we learn God's wisdom through the study of His word, if we follow God's guidance through obedience to the Holy Spirit, and if we have a true love for Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Then we have what we need for the spiritual warfare that lies ahead. God through the power Holy Spirit, will crush the influence of Satan in our lives. He will do so, if we will place our trust in God and follow His guidance. We have to remember what James explains to us in the first chapter of his epistle. James tells us we will experience various trials because of the fallen world we live in.

However, if we remain steadfast in our faith through the power of the Holy Spirit who indwells us, God will help us to make it through the trial at hand. And by doing so, the Lord builds up perseverance within us, thereby making us more effective for His kingdom work. As followers of Jesus and children of God, adopted into the family of God through faith. We have to remember we have three enemies who will attack us as we walk with the Lord. These enemies are the fallen world, Satan and those demons who follow him and our sin nature. Together they will cause chaos, turmoil and tribulation, especially in the lives of Christians. Therefore, we are to place our complete trust in Christ alone, arm ourselves with the word of God, keep ourselves in constant prayer and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And we do so knowing, that the time of Christ's return is near. Jesus will crush Satan underfoot, just as He has already overcome the power of sin. This means, we must look to Jesus, keeping our eyes focussed on Him alone, in order that through the power of the Holy Spirit, we may finish well the race God has set before us.

We Are Born Again as the First Fruits of the Gospel of Christ

Bible Verse James 1:18

Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Commentary:

James tells us that God of His own sovereign will brought us forth by the word of truth. James uses the Greek word "boulomai" which means, of the sovereign, omnipotent will of God. What James is telling us is that our regeneration and salvation are an expression of the sovereign, all mighty will of God. And that it's God's will which is the source of our new life in Christ Jesus our Lord. God through the work of the Holy Spirit by the Gospel message brought about a regeneration of our hearts by faith. This was done in order that we may hear, understand and accept the Gospel message of grace. By which we place our faith in Jesus and His death for us on the Cross of Calvary. And it's this regeneration through the will of God which brought us to salvation and has given us a new spirit which is alive to God and the things of God.

And with our salvation comes the process of spiritual growth, which is called "sanctification." Sanctification is a process carried out by the Holy Spirit who indwells every follower of Christ, changing our hearts and our lives from the inside out. Here the "word of truth" is the Gospel message of salvation in Christ alone, through faith alone by grace alone. And it's this regeneration by the will of God that we are brought forth as a new creation in Christ. Therefore, through faith alone we are born again as the first fruits of God. And just as in Bible times when the people brought the first fruits of their harvest and the first born of their livestock before God. We too are the first fruits of the Gospel message of faith in Jesus. And our salvation and rebirth now is just a glimpse, a foretaste if you will, of the eternity which awaits us when we go home to be with the Lord.

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.

The Gospel of Grace

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Keeping Ourselves in Christ

Jude 1:20-21, 24-25

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.

Always Seek Wise Godly Counsel - (Proverbs 20:18-19)

Plans are established by counsel; by wise counsel wage war. He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips.


Reading Notes

Here the Bible is critical on the need to think before we act. To seek God's guidance as well as wise, godly counsel before we move forward with critical decisions, especially if those decisions affect the lives of others. In this case the seriousness of war is used as the example of requiring wise counsel. And the same holds true for us as well today, we are to be in Christ! Which means we are to be obedient to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, in fellowship with other believers and in the study of God's word. Doing this allows us to have wise counsel from the Lord already planted deep in our hearts when the need arises.

In addition, our faith and our salvation requires us to seek out the Lord and to build within ourselves a thorough understanding of our faith, God's word and our knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. Moreover, these passages speak about using wisdom in determining who we bring into close counsel with us. We should choose our friends wisely and seek counsel from those who have proven themselves godly. We are looking for godly men and women who love the Lord, love His word and who themselves seek His guidance through the Holy Spirit. Then come together before the Lord as a group in prayer and supplication, before making critical decisions.

Year of Psalms
for Friday, April 29, 2016

God Can Work With Us Where Ever We Are At - (Psalm 18:25-27)

With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless; With the pure You will show Yourself pure; And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd. For You will save the humble people, But will bring down haughty looks.


Reading Notes

God relates to each of us individually based on our relationship with Him. God has created each of us by hand and therefore He knows what we need to be complete in Him. God is keenly aware of our attitude toward Him and the spiritual growth we need at any particular moment in our lives. Each of us individually are on the heart of God, as He works to call us to Himself. Moreover, God is not only actively involved in our lives in the here and now, He also does a work in our hearts keeping eternity in mind. God is preparing us not only for His service now; but also in the age to come. God will meet us where we're at in order to build within us a heart of humility, mercy, compassion, and love for Him, His word and the lost.

He does so through the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and in our lives. When we come to faith in Christ our spirit which was dead in trespasses and sins, is replaced by a new spirit which is alive to God and the things of God. In addition, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in the heart of every follower of Christ, where He begins His work of spiritual growth. Our part is to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, prepare ourselves in the knowledge of His word through regular Bible reading and study, and to remove the pride from our hearts as we grow in Christ. We must always remember pride is the one sin that prevents any and all spiritual growth from taking place. Pride is the main ingredient required by Satan and this fallen world in order to harden a heart toward God and others.

Bible Principle for Today
for Friday, April 29, 2016

As Christians we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, listening to His promptings and obeying them, is walking with God. God gave us the Holy Spirit and His Word for guidance, we must never forget we walk with God, He doesn't follow us.

Prayer for Today
for Friday, April 29, 2016

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for all the pain it caused you to send Jesus and to see him persecuted, ridiculed, and crucified. Thank you for redeeming me from my sinful condition, for buying me out of the death that would have been the consequence of my sins, and for giving me the gift of freedom and family. To you belongs all glory, honor, and praise for your marvelous grace.
