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, April 25, 2015

God Promises He Will Bring Everlasting Justice - (Psalm 103:6)

I will provide justice for everyone who is mistreated.


Reading Notes

The Lord is righteous and He is just and therefore God will bring justice. We currently live in what's called the church age, this is a time when God has shown us His grace through Christ Jesus our Lord. This means we live in a time when our sins, the injustices that we commit can all be forgiven us and we can be made clean through Jesus because of the blood He shed for us on the Cross. Grace is when we accept Jesus and the sacrifice He made for our sins. Through grace God washes away our sins because of the blood Jesus shed for us.

And because of age of grace God is longsuffering. He pours out His Holy Spirit on mankind to change our hearts in order that we may accept Christ and inherit the free gift of salvation. However this time is quickly coming to a close. And when it does God will begin a period where His judgment will come. A time period where the deserved punishment for man's sins will be poured out on an un-repented world. Therefore knowing that God's justice will come and the time of Christ is at hand, we should strive to know and live in relationship with Jesus during these last days.

Blessed are the Persecuted

Bible Verse Matthew 5:1-2, 5:10

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven"

Commentary:

This beatitude can be especially difficult for us to understand and to experience. We know there are places in our world today where innocent people who follow Jesus are persecuted and sometimes even killed for no other reason than their faith in Christ. For such, their reward is eternity spent in the presence of Jesus and the blessing of showing themselves to be a good and faithful servant to the God we love. As believers we are to follow the example of Jesus during His earthly ministry.

And live a life as He taught us through the power of the Holy Spirit. Treating others with kindness, long-suffering, compassion and understanding as we seek to spread the Gospel of salvation through Christ alone. We are called to pray fervently, help those in need and be a light to the world. Always striving in prayer to keep our hearts humble. Because without humility we are in danger of the same disease that the Pharisee's of Jesus' day contracted. A heart grown cold because of self-righteous attitudes developed from years of practicing religion, rather than following Jesus. The idea of persecution spoken of here refers to someone who was not seeking confrontation, but because of their faith experienced harm.

What this means for us is when we use our faith as a tool to confront others. To make others acutely aware of their sin in a manner that makes us boastful or proud. We are not being Christ like and persecution from that kind behavior does not gain us special blessings from God. We must never forget warrior's for Jesus fight on their knees in prayer, before sacrificing themselves for others and the spread of the Gospel. We must never forget the cross of Christ is in itself an offence to the world. Let us take heed that we add no offence by our own actions giving others means to insult the name of Jesus.

Conduct Worthy of the Gospel

Philippians 1:27-29

Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation.

Year of Proverbs
for Saturday, April 25, 2015

Adultery Always Dishonors and Consumes its Victims - (Proverbs 5:7-10)

Therefore hear me now, my children, And do not depart from the words of my mouth. Remove your way far from her, And do not go near the door of her house, Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one; Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner.


Reading Notes

God's word gives us a stern warning regarding adultery and that is to follow the example of Joseph and flee far from it as fast as we can. Dear believer remember there is no where we can go where God can't find us and no where we can hide where God can't see us. All sin especially adultery is committed before the eyes of God and His holly angels. Since we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit this type of sin is especially destructive because it deals with our bodies which now, do not belong to us, but instead belong to God. Moreover we are created in the image of God, thereby making this sin especially destructive because it dishonors God's creation as well as His calling for both men and women.

It's critical to understand sin of this nature cannot stay hidden, once committed it dishonors our souls and destroys our lives. And remember once the sin of adultery has been committed, you bring to life a monster. A horrendous beast that want's nothing more than to come screaming and kicking into our world seeking our destruction in as public a matter as possible. Dear child of God understand this point clearly. If this sin were not so severe, Satan and this dark would not promote it so heavily in our culture and in our media. The hook is lust, the bait is the lie of secrecy and all who are caught by this will be prepared for the meal of destruction which will destroy your life and the lives of those around you.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, April 25, 2015

We Will Praise God's Glory in Their Midst - (Psalm 22:19-22)

But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me. Deliver Me from the sword, My precious life from the power of the dog. Save Me from the lion's mouth And from the horns of the wild oxen You have answered Me. I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.


Reading Notes

The exuberance of a follower of Christ who has placed total trust in the Lord and has seen His faithful work on our behalf cannot scarcely be contain and is joyfully contagious. And that is how God meant our salvation to be. Our joy and love for the Lord was always meant to be shared with others and not hidden. And God wants us to share our joy in the Lord with those in the world around us.

And He wants us to do so using the talents, abilities and personalities He has so graciously given us. Because we know the joy we have once we have been reconciled to God the Father through Jesus is beyond compare. And only a child of God, through God's Grace can understand our confidence in the Lord when He has time and again proven Himself faithful because of our complete trust in Him.
