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, May 29, 2015

God Promises He Will Guide Us In the Way We Should Go - (Isaiah 30:21)

I will be the voice behind you, guiding you in the way you should go.


Reading Notes

This prophecy was given during a time when the Assyrian army was threatening Judah and King Hezekiah. However God had promised that He would defend the city and the people. But rather than turn to God the advisors to the king urged him to turn to the Egyptians who had already been defeated once before by the Assyrians. These verses show the futility in the chosen people of God turning to man rather than the Lord for help. In the end Hezekiah turned toward the Lord and God sent an angel who defeated the Assyrian army.

These verses speak of a future time during Christ's millennial kingdom. A time when people and teachers will follow the Lord and have their steps guided by God Himself. A time when teachers who are called prophets in these passages will hear and know the direction of the Lord for teaching students. For those who have placed our faith in Christ we have this promise now. Because of our faith in Jesus we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who guides our steps. And when we submit to God's will by faith we can hear the direction of the Holy Spirit guiding our lives and building us strong as we study God's word.

Seeking After God

Bible Verse Matthew 2:1-2, 10

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

Commentary:

The Christmas story is one of the most loved stories of all time and none of us can forget the three wise men who followed the star to the baby Jesus. These men as wise as they were knew something was missing, they went in search of God and they found it in the person of Jesus.

There are times in our lives when we can go through the same search. Trying everything our world has to offer in order to find happiness and true meaning in our lives. When all along true happiness, peace and joy is to be found in the person of Jesus. It is through Christ and our love for Him that we can find real peace even in times of struggle and turmoil.

Enduring Trials Builds Faith

2nd Corinthians 4:17-18

For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

God Disciplines His Children

Hebrews 12:7-8

As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father? If God doesn't discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children at all.

Today Our Savior is Born

Luke 2:9-11

And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 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.

God's Gift to Us

John 3:17

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

God Humbled Himself for Us

Luke 2:7

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.

Jesus Our Mighty God

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

The Divine Power of Christ

2nd Peter 1:3

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.

We Are Complete in Christ

Colossians 2:9-10

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

God's Lovingkindness is Great

Psalm 108:1-4

My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul. Awake, harp and lyre; I will awaken the dawn! I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the peoples, And I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great above the heavens, And Your truth reaches to the skies.

Saved by Faith Alone

Romans 4:4-5

Now to the one who (A)works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Blessings of the Lord

Psalm 103:1-4

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

Year of Proverbs
for Friday, May 29, 2015

To Follow Christ, Is to Love Those Around You - (Proverbs 17:8-9)

A present is a precious stone in the eyes of its possessor; Wherever he turns, he prospers. He who covers a transgression seeks love, But he who repeats a matter separates friends.


Reading Notes

Here God is contrasting the works of the righteous with those of the wicked. The righteous seek what is good, honest and they works only in the best interest of the people around them and those they meet. This is contrasted with the wicked who seek to harm, destroy and get ahead at any cost whether it be bribery or gossip. The wicked seek any occasion to attack others. Therefore it's the wicked person who uses claims wanting to be honest in order to excuse their attacks or to speak ill of others in public. God is using the metaphor of a present in these passages because presents are given out of love for the recipient and that is the thought here.

God is speaking of those things we do for others because of the love we have for them and not for ourselves. And a true friend speaks directly to people and gives advice in private. They give gifts out of love and have a desire to help those in need through times of trials and strife. A true friend does not gossip, but protects. As followers of Jesus we are to care for those around us, seek the lost, help those in need and grow in the grace of Christ through the study of His word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We are to take hold of the blessings that God has given us and use them to proclaim the light of the Gospel to a world that is perishing in darkness.

Year of Psalms
for Friday, May 29, 2015

God Has Made His Salvation Known Through Christ Jesus Our Lord - (Psalm 98:2)

The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.


Reading Notes

In the Old Testament God made His salvation known through His redemption and deliverance of Israel. In the New Testament God made His salvation known through the redemption of mankind by Jesus Christ our Lord; His sacrifice for us and our faith in Him. The Bible is God's revelation to us! It's about His plan of redemption for mankind and the Bible is history. The Bible shows us how God worked through different people and the nation of Israel and it's His witness of love for all the world to see. In its entirety the Bible is for and about Jesus and God's plan of redemption through Him. God has not hidden His work with mankind, it has always been visible for all nations, languages and people to see. For example remember the "Day of Pentecost" from the New Testament book of Acts, we see Peter speaking to the crowd regarding the risen Christ and thousands of people heard him speak.

However through the working of the Holy Spirit each person heard Peter's words in their native tongue. Moreover because of the Holy Spirit's work that day more than three-thousand people came to faith in Jesus. God has not hidden His plan of redemption from us! It was not only evident before men and part of history, but it's also preserved in God's word the Bible. The Bible was written through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit on the authors of each book. Then it was preserved by God to make it available to all generations. Everything God has done has been before the eyes of all the nations of the world. That's because God's redemption was designed to be visible to all people, tribes and tongues in order to bring salvation to as many people as will come to faith in Jesus. That through Jesus and His work at the cross all may have eternal life through faith in Him alone.
