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 Wednesday, July 30, 2014

God Promises His Word Will Not Return Void - (Isaiah 55:10-11)

My Word will not return to Me until it accomplishes what I intended.


Reading Notes

God's Word is His revelation to mankind. God's word teaches us about Himself, about our futures and how to treat one another in addition to living a life pleasing to God. God's word is complete in everything we need to live a good life and learn how we can spend eternity with God by having a relationship with Christ. Even Satan knows that God's word is true and provides what we need to know about Jesus and salvation. Moreover with the work and intercession of the Holy Spirit God's word will never return void, it will always accomplish God's purposes. Therefore the last thing Satan wants any of us to do is read it and have a relationship with Jesus.

This is why Satan is so hard at work in this fallen world trying to convince people the Bible is not relevant. That the Bible is not divinely inspired. However dear follower of Jesus, remember this. If either of those two lies were true, Satan and this dark world would not be devoting so much time and effort to attacking God's word. The Bible calls Satan the, "prince of the power of the air" and he is also the, "father of lies" and he will do whatever he can to influence the world today. Satan's goal is get us to think that God's word is not true and it's not from God. And he will do anything to keep you from reading it, the question dear believer is will he succeed with you?

Don't Be Overwhelmed by the Influences of this World

Bible Verse 1st Corinthians 6:12

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

Commentary:

This passage is not speaking of salvation because we are saved by our faith in Christ; however we have to be careful not let ourselves get caught up in the things of this world. We must remember this world system is under the influence of the evil one.

And therefore it's meant to draw us away from Christ not toward Him. We are called to be lights to the world, lighting the path to Christ; but not part of this world, otherwise those who are lost will not see Christ in us. Therefore since we belong to Christ we must be brought under the power of things in this world.

Our Wealth is in Christ and the Salvation He Alone Provides

Proverbs 16:7-9

When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice. A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.

It is More Blessed to Give

Acts 20:35

And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'

We Will See Christ Face to Face

1st Corinthians 13:12-13

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Through the Holy Spirit We Stand in Faith

1st Corinthians 16:13-14

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.

God is With Us

Matthew 1:23

Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name 'Immanuel,' which is translated, 'God with us.'

Abide in Christ

1st John 2:28

And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

Jesus, God in the Flesh

Romans 1:1-3

Separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.

Jesus, God in the Flesh

John 1:14

So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son.

Jesus, God in the Flesh

John 1:1-2

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God.

Our Gift is to Spread the Gospel

Romans 10:14

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

Jesus Sent Us His Holy Spirit Till He Returns

John 16:7-8

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me.

Year of Proverbs
for Wednesday, July 30, 2014

The Righteous Have Understanding and Use Discretion - (Proverbs 11:12-13)

He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, But a man of understanding holds his peace. A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter.


Reading Notes

The heart of the righteous has compassion and mercy, along with understanding that all have sinned and all fall short of the glory of God. This brings wisdom and guidance and one of the by-products of that spiritual growth is discretion and control not to gossip. Not to spread rumors and the ability to speak not out of emotions, but out of thoughtful consideration tempered with grace. Patients and control are part of wisdom. And maturity is to know when not to act out of passion; but out of the Lord's guidance. The Bible also tells us, "Love covers a multitude of sins." Therefore what we say and what we do should be out of love and concern for those around us.

This means are intentions are always for the best interest of all concerned as it relates to eternity. And through our spiritual growth governed by the Holy Spirit we are to handle confidential matters appropriately and justly. This is contrasted with the talebearer who purposely uses what they know to create strife, turmoil and chaos through gossip. Dear Christian we have to be careful, these verses are not referring to covering up sin, hiding wrong doing or upholding injustice! On the contrary they refer to handling sin appropriately, correcting wrong and bringing justice as required, as opposed to using other peoples sin as a means for their destruction or as an excuse to better ourselves and our circumstances.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Blessed is the Wisdom of the Lord - (Psalm 94:12-13)

Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord, And teach out of Your law, That You may give him rest from the days of adversity, Until the pit is dug for the wicked.


Reading Notes

The word used here for blessed means, "manifest happiness" or a "displayed happiness". It carries the meaning of having a deep down joy and happiness which is displayed in our day to day lives. This is not just "putting on a happy face" or having a "positive attitude". Instead this refers to a real feeling of joy, security and happiness which affects us so much that it's manifested or displayed in our day to day lives. Dear believer this is such an important Biblical truth for us to understand, because this is one of the promises of God. We know because Jesus told us so, that we will experience trials and tribulations in this life. However despite that and because we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who strengthens us, we will have joy and happiness.

Our salvation brings with it a deep down sense of joy and love for the Lord which is turn manifested as happiness in our day to day lives. The Holy Spirit upon our salvation begins His work of sanctification, which is a lifelong process of changing us from the inside out. This process of sanctification makes us more sensitive to the things of God and His will in our lives. In addition we gain security in the knowledge of knowing where we will spend eternity. And this is so very important, because as God's word tells us, this world is passing away. And no material wealth we obtain in this life will follow us into eternity. Therefore we are to focus on Christ Jesus our Lord, follow the Holy Spirit's guidance and through Bible study let the word of God dwell in us richly.
