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 Sunday, March 01, 2015

God Promises We Can Enter His Kingdom - (Luke 12:31)

Seek My kingdom first and everything you need will be given to you.


Reading Notes

We have everything we need in Christ Jesus our Lord. The kingdom of God fills our hearts now through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and we reign with Christ in the age to come, when we go home to be with the Lord. This is a beautiful promise of God; however in order to seek the kingdom of God we must first be part of the kingdom of God. The Bible tells us, "All we, like sheep, have gone astray."

And of our ability to be righteous in the eyes of God the Bible says, "There is none righteous, no not one." We cannot seek what we are not part of, therefore in order to seek the kingdom of God we must first enter as children of God. And we do that through Christ! Jesus is waiting for us, all we need to do is call on His name and accept the free grace He alone can offer, accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Then and only then do we become children of God because only Jesus can restore a relationship broken by sin.

Introduction to Paul's Letter to the Galatians Part I

Bible Verse Galatians 1:1

Apostilic council for confused churches and the need to remember salvation is by God's grace through our faith alone in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Commentary:

Paul's letter to the Galatians was written to the churches in the region of Galatia which is now part of modern day Turkey. The primary theme of the letter is salvation by faith alone in Jesus alone. Given freely to us because of Jesus' work on the Cross of Calvary. The early church was initially comprised of Jewish converts to Christianity. These were people who were born and raised in the religion of Judaism. However, because of social pressure, Jewish culture and fear of persecution, some were hesitant to give up or abandon the rituals and ceremonies of Judaism. As a result, they continued to live life under the Mosaic law. As time went on, God sent the disciples to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles. As the Gospel was preached the Gentiles began to accept Jesus for salvation.

As this happened a division between Judaism and Christianity began to develop. This was because most Jewish believers continued to live life within the context of Jewish culture. This meant adherence to Mosaic laws, customs and rituals. This opened the door for Jews who were false teachers claiming to have faith in Christ, but in reality were proselytes after converts to Judaism. They came into the Gentile churches and tried to impose Mosaic laws such as dietary restrictions and circumcision on the Gentile believers. They did so by convincing them these rituals were needed for salvation. In order to combat this Paul wrote this letter to set the record straight and to help clarify proper Christian doctrine. Paul wanted to help the Galatian Christians understand salvation is a gift of God. It's given freely by God because of His mercy and grace toward us. And it's given through faith in Jesus alone and therefore not a product of any type of works or good deeds.

Selected Bible Verse

God Examines Our Hearts

1st Thessalonians 2:3-4

For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.

Power of the Holy Spirit

1st Corinthians 2:4-5

My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Preach Only Christ Crucified

1st Corinthians 2:1-3

And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling.

We Are Bond-Servants of Christ

2nd Corinthians 4:5

For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake.

Serve Christ in Humility

Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Goodness Belongs to the Lord

Psalm 86:5

For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

Love Your Neighbor as Christ Loved You

Galatians 5:13-14

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Good Comes From a Heart Following God

Luke 6:45

A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.

Follow the Lord and Do Good

1st Peter 3:8-12

Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here's what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you're worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he's asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.

We Have Rest in Jesus

Matthew 11:28-30

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

The Lord's Dominion is Over All

Daniel 4:34-35

His dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But He does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off His hand Or say to Him, 'What have You done?'

God's Spirit Restores a Broken Spirit - (Proverbs 17:22)

A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.


Reading Notes

Nothing can destroy a person’s drive or moral more than a broken spirit. A broken spirit can weigh heavy on our hearts and change the way we perceive the world around us and our place with in it. However God heals even the broken spirit, because He knows our frame, He knows we are but the dust of the earth. And when we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior something beyond our ability to describe happens to our lives.

First the Holy Spirit brings an immediate change to our hearts as He then indwells every believer from the moment they accept Jesus into their hearts and lives. The Holy Spirit from that moment forward begins God's work of sanctification which fills our hearts with a joy that defies worldly understanding and makes us more sensitive to the things of God. This process of sanctification continues to transform us, restoring broken lives, healing wounds and bringing new life into our souls. A life which has been reborn anew in Christ.

Year of Psalms
for Sunday, March 01, 2015

We Can Call to the Lord in Times of Trouble - (Psalm 20:1-5)

May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah May He grant you according to your heart's desire, And fulfill all your purpose. We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.


Reading Notes

In the day of battle, during times of trouble we can call for the Lord, He is there with us always. Here battles is in reference to the constant struggles, trials and tribulations experienced by God's people. These verses paint a beautiful picture of God responding to our call from His heavenly sanctuary, His dwelling place in heaven.

God rejoices in our daily victories through Him and the Bible tells us that God and the angels rejoice over each and every person who comes to faith in Jesus. And because of our relationship with God through Jesus, God promises to fulfill the purpose of our calling and salvation as we stand steadfast in Christ.
