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 Monday, April 27, 2015

God Promises We Can Come Before His Throne Because of Jesus - (Hebrews 4:15-16)

Come boldly to My throne when you need to find mercy and grace.


Reading Notes

Jesus is our faithful High Priest. The writer of Hebrews was writing to a Jewish audience facing persecution because of their faith in Christ. They were contemplating returning back to their former religion of Judaism. The Hebrew people are God's chosen people and one of the practices of Judaism was the annual sacrifice by the High Priest for forgiveness of the sins of the people. This could only be done once a year and only by the High Priest. First the High Priest made a sacrifice for himself, then one for the people. He then took the blood of the sacrifice into the Holy of Holies the most sacred part of the Temple. This is where the Ark of the Covenant was located.

The High Priest sprinkled the blood from the sacrifice on the Ark and it was there the High Priest came before God's throne. And that's where Jesus comes in. When Jesus died on the cross He took our sins away from us and because of His sacrifice we now have access before the throne of God. When Jesus died the veil of the Temple was torn in two. The thick veil that separated the Holy of Hollies and the Ark of the Covenant from the rest of the world, tore in half exposing the meeting place of God. God tore this veil at the moment Jesus died to show us because of Jesus we can now come before a Holy God. Jesus became our High Priest thereby making the role of the Temple High Priest and Temple sacrifices unnecessary and that's why God tore the veil. Because through Jesus we can now before a Holy God and call Him Father.

Living in the Power of His Resurrection

Bible Verse Philippians 3:10-14

That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Commentary:

Paul is expressing the desire of every Christian's heart, which is to know Jesus. To deepen our understanding and knowledge of Christ and His sufferings. To learn why the creator of the universe gave so much for us that we may spend eternity with Him. Because it is through this knowledge and the faith we have in Jesus, strengthened by the Holy Spirit and humbled by our own trials, that we prepare our hearts to better serve those in need and those who are suffering.

It's this desire to know and be with Jesus, which causes us to eagerly push forward as athletes running a race. We strive to reach for the goal, that ultimate prize which is the very moment in time when we first see Jesus face to face. And it's our expectation of this time that we strive to win the race set before us. We are strengthened by the power of His resurrection. For it is our proof that Jesus is who He claimed to be, that is God in the flesh; who has redeemed us from our sins by His blood shed for us.

Year of Proverbs
for Monday, April 27, 2015

Those Who Rule Over Others Are To Follow the Lord - (Proverbs 16:10)

A divine sentence is in the lips of the king; His mouth shall not transgress in judgment.


Reading Notes

Kings in ancient times as well as today were supposed to represent the Lord. And they were mandated by God to seek out His guidance and His judgment not man's judgment. They were required to seek wisdom from God in order to judge the people well. This was required by the Lord in order to ensure that all people were treated with honesty and justice. This was to help ensure that a king ruled his kingdom righteously. Kings who did so were blessed by God. However man in his sin corrupted God's plan for kings and rulers.

However despite wickedness in the world today we should not lose heart! God has promised us that ultimately Jesus shall reign over the entire earth and all nations will bow before Him. They will bring their gifts to His throne. He alone shall judge the nations with justice and righteousness. The Bible tells us during the Messianic Kingdom all nations will send their ambassadors to Jerusalem to worship and praise Jesus who will sit on the throne judging all nations. Therefore we should not loose heart in these evil times, because Jesus is returning.

Year of Psalms
for Monday, April 27, 2015

God's Thoughts Toward Us are Precious, Numerous and Continuous - (Psalm 139:17-18)

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God How great is the sum of them. If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.


Reading Notes

God often has wonderful thoughts toward us. Moreover, He dearly loves us and desires eternity with us. These passages show a transition in David's thoughts and praise. His thoughts are moving from the sovereignty and omnipotence of God, toward God's loyal love for His children. A love so vast, that God's thoughts are constant, precious, full of love and compassion for those called by Him. So much so, the Bible tells us they're innumerable, too vast for consideration or enumeration. David through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit gives us a glimpse into the infinite love of God. A love incomprehensible, and beyond our ability to understand them in human terms.

Beyond comprehension is God's love for His creation, therefore we praise God, placing our trust in him alone. Dear child of God, should we begin today to count God's thoughts of love. Our lives would run their course, and we would experience the presence of our Lord and Savior before we could finish counting. Therefore why would we seek anything else other than the Lord? Why would we seek, self righteousness, through unmeritable works, which only lead to death? When there's joy found by faith in God, through faith in Christ! As children of God through faith, each morning brings new the love of God. A refreshing by His thoughts of peace toward us. Every morning, bringing new opportunities for participation in God's blessings through obedience, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
