Why We're Here

It's estimated there are almost three billion people in our generation who are still unreached with the Gospel Message of Salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ our Lord. 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 has fallen short of the glory of God. All people at one point or another have done something or thought something they're not proud of, something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind those deeds. And that's what Salvation is all about. We are separated from God because of our sin nature. Moreover, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. Any sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. In addition, good works no matter how big the sacrifice can erase or remove past sin.

But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you. And God's salvation is a free gift given by faith. And He gave you a way to receive forgiveness of all sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We all know that 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 which is 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, July 04, 2015

God Promises He is For His Children - (Romans 8:31)

If I am for you, no one can stand against you.


Reading Notes

Paul wrote this letter to a church has had never met; but hoped to meet soon. The letter to the Roman Christians was meant to encourage them and give them a solid understanding of the Christian faith. Today we call Paul's letter to the Romans the "flagship" letter of the New Testament because of its complete doctrinal teachings on Christianity. This passages comes just after a section explaining the security we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. Paul added these rhetorical questions in order to help believers understand the spiritual truth that lies beneath.

A better reading for the passage above would be, "Since God is for us, who can be against us?" This was speaking to God's omnipotence, His sovereignty and His foreknowledge. And since God is in control and our salvation and eternity are secure, what have we to fear? Though they can kill our bodies, still our souls and where we'll spend eternity is secure in Jesus. And since God is in control who can stand against the will of God, who can fight against God? Who can overcome the omnipotent Creator of the universe, who created everything with His spoken word? If God has secured us, and He is for us who are we to fear?

Jesus is With Us Always

Bible Verse John 20:13-16

Then they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away." Jesus said to her, "Mary" She turned and said to Him, "Rabboni" (which is to say, Teacher).

Commentary:

Mary was weeping because she thought she would never see Jesus again. She did not understand that Jesus the Messiah had to die for our sins and rise again. Moreover, she did not realize that Jesus will be with us forever more. In her grief, she couldn't bear the thought of not seeing Jesus again and was unable to focus on eternity to come. Her grief and cares of this world blinded her to the fact that God was right there beside her. And when she finally looked up, much to her amazement and surprise Jesus was with her. He was right beside her. He spoke with her and comforted her and saw her through her time of struggle and pain.

And Jesus is always here with us as well. We can learn from Mary's lesson, Jesus is always there beside us. God will never leave us, and He won't let us be left alone during our most sever times of trial. Therefore, we must never forget Jesus is alive today and He is waiting for us to turn to Him in our time of struggle and pain. He is faithful to comfort us, to give us guidance and hope. Moreover, God has sent us a Helper, the Holy Spirit who dwells with us always. The Holy Spirit will always be here, by our side strengthening us, guiding us and working out the will of God in our lives.

Year of Proverbs
for Saturday, July 04, 2015

Know God, Exist in Christ, This is Wisdom - (Proverbs 9:10-11)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you.


Reading Notes

The word used here for fear has a much broader and deeper meaning than we realize at first glance. It does not mean to be afraid of God. Instead it means to have a deep down heartfelt love, respect, reverence and sense of awe and wonder of God. To understand He is our creator and because of Him and through Him we exist and have our being. This is the foundational basis of all Biblical wisdom. With this foundation we then have a correct perspective with which to approach His word.

Moreover it helps us to be more sensitive to the promptings and guidance of the Holy Spirit, whereby we have a heart ready to receive wisdom through the study God's word. This in turn brings us into the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord. And through Him we have eternity added unto our lives because of the salvation He alone can provide. And knowing this and being in Christ is truly the beginning of wisdom and understanding.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, July 04, 2015

Because of Jesus We Stand in an Even Place - (Psalm 26:9-12)

Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my life with bloodthirsty men, In whose hands is a sinister scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; Redeem me and be merciful to me. My foot stands in an even place; In the congregations I will bless the Lord.


Reading Notes

God distinguishes between those who respond to His call of grace and those who reject His salvation. We walk with the Lord through the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit who indwells us, we do not walk with evil men.

And because of Jesus and what He did for us at the Cross of Calvary we stand securely, "in an even place." Where no one can take us out of the hands of Christ. Our salvation is secure in Him and therefore our souls shall bless the Lord and we will sing His praises with our lips.

Bible Principle for Today
for Saturday, July 04, 2015
