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 Saturday, October 25, 2014

God Promises to Bless and Comfort Us in Times of Mourning - (Matthew 5:4)

I will bless you in times of mourning with My comfort.


Reading Notes

For those of us who have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior the Holy Spirit is busy doing a work in our hearts. This work is called the process of sanctification and it's for our spiritual growth, and it last a lifetime. Moreover as we grow in our faith and love toward Jesus we gain a sensitivity to sin while our love for Christ grows deeper. This in turn causes a sadness and repentance in us when we stumble and sin. And that's what Jesus is talking about in this passage.

The word used to refer to those who morn conveys a sense of a deep sorrow or sadness as a result of sin. A sorrow that we feel because of our relationship with God through Jesus. A sorrow that produces repentance as we turn our hearts back toward Christ. And joy because even though we stumble we know we are already forgiven. As we repent Jesus is waiting with arms open wide. This brings comfort to our hearts as the Holy Spirit comes along side us, turning our hearts once again toward the Lord.

God Will Uphold Us

Bible Verse Isaiah 41:10, 13

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, "Fear not, I will help you."

Commentary:

As followers of Jesus this promise is just as applicable to us today as it was to the nation of Israel more than two-thousand years ago. Because of our faith in Christ we need not fear the judgments of the Lord. Because we are His children adopted into the family of God through our faith in Christ Jesus. As children of God and joint heirs with Christ, our relationship with God has been restored. We can now approach God as our perfect Father in heaven.

God's promises are ours and His thoughts toward us are thoughts of peace, joy and kindness. To give us hope because we know He is faithful and able to restore us. Though we may face trials and go through tribulations that seem ready to destroy us, the Lord is faithful to carry us through. The Lord is faithful to restore our lives. And in the end when our time here on earth is through He will take us home to dwell forever in the presence of His glory. There we will know more, understand more and feel greater peace and joy than we can ever experience here on earth.

Year of Proverbs

Pride the Sin that Brings Death - (Proverbs 13:10)

By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom.


Reading Notes

God is not talking about pride that comes with honest labor, neither is God talking about the pride a parent has when their child makes a moral and just decision on the their own without prompting. God is talking about a destructive sin, an arrogant pride that revolves around self. A pride that causes a soul to lift itself above all else even God. A disease that leads to arrogance and a refusal to glorify God. Such pride carries nothing but death and it's the root cause behind many tales of destruction. Pride is what took Satan from the being the pinnacle of God's creation to the most despised enemy of God.

Pride brought Satan down to a point where his name is synonymous with evil. Pride has only one outcome and that is death and destruction for all who claim it. And with its first bite it injects the venom of blindness, which prevents its victims from seeing just how vile they have become to those they love and the world around them. As the venom of arrogance travels to the heart it destroys all flesh and replaces it with stone in order to prevent its victim from seeking a cure. Pride does this in order to ensure as best it can the total destruction of those who harbor and cherish it.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, October 25, 2014

God Can Protect Us from Destruction - (Psalm 36:10-12)

Oh, continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, And Your righteousness to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride come against me, And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away. There the workers of iniquity have fallen; They have been cast down and are not able to rise.


Reading Notes

In the preceding verses of this chapter God gave us a glimpse into the thought process, attitudes and behavior of the wicked. Now David taking that knowledge into consideration as he praises God for His loving kindness and protection. David is praising God for sustaining the upright, those who placed their faith in God rather than their own power an ingenuity.

Here the phrase "foot of pride" is a military reference and was meant to paint the picture of being defeated and having your enemy with his foot on your neck preparing your destruction. Taken altogether David is praising and thanking the Lord for saving him from total destruction by his enemies and not only protecting him; but keeping him safe through all trials.
