Welcome to Daily Bible Online

Daily Bible Online is a non-denominational Christian website devoted to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping believers grow in their Christian faith. Our website offers Bible Search and Study Tools designed to help Christians grow in their understanding and knowledge of the Bible. Our goal is to create online tools to help others explore and study the meaning of scripture as it relates to the entire Bible, Jesus Christ our Lord and God's plan of redemption. All of our scripture studies take into context the surrounding verses, chapter and book, as well as the historical and cultural times of the writer, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

God's Gift of Grace to Us!

Everyone of us has sinned and broken God's laws. Everyone has fallen short of God's perfect standard. 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. Moreover, God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind all the things we do. The Bible says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." And that's what Salvation is all about. All of humanity was born with a sin-nature, and we are separated from God because of our sin. In addition, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. What we consider "good deeds" are god's standard for our normal everyday behavior. If that were not hard enough, we have to remember, no good deeds, no matter how big the sacrifice, erase or remove past sin. There are no scales in Heaven, God is not going to compare our sins against our good deeds, to see which is greater.

That would be like committing a crime, then telling the judge we are not guilty because we did a good deed afterwards. We must remember all sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you and me. God's desire is that all people would spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Therefore, God's salvation is a free gift given by His grace, through faith alone in Jesus alone. God gave us a way to receive forgiveness of all of our sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We know that we are not perfect. Though try as we might, no one can achieve perfection. We cannot behave perfectly 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 anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Daily Bible Promises
for Sunday, May 29, 2016

God Promises Us He is With Us Always - (Isaiah 41:10)

I am with you and I will help you because I am your God.


Reading Notes

We are God's people because of what Jesus has done for us, and our faith in Him. Therefore, we do not need to fear God's judgment, nor the trials that come our way. This is because God is with us always, through the Holy Spirit who indwells us. These words were originally spoken to the Israelite people who had seen God's tremendous work of protection and restoration on their behalf. However, these truths are applicable to us today because of Jesus and what He has done for us. Through Christ, we have been grafted into the family of God's chosen people, the faithful remnant of Israel. And because of that the promises of God are applicable to us as well. We too, as children of God, are under the divine destiny of our Lord.

And through Jesus we have become not only children of God, but joint-heirs with Him, taking part in the kingdom of God. This is part of our new status as children of God. This verse paints a beautiful image which shows us both God's sovereignty and mighty power. These passages were written by God at a time when Israel was facing attack. And the Lord sent word to the leaders of the nation, not to fear, because they were protected by God Himself. And in these passages we see God's mercy, tenderness and loving-kindness toward His children. In addition, we learn that God is with us always. And we as children of God, saved by grace through Christ alone, by faith alone, are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who strengthens and upholds us. And because of what Jesus did for us, His righteousness has been imputed (accredited) to us and our sins have been removed and we become children of God. And because of our restored relationship with God through Christ, we become partakers in the promises of God.

Faith and Endurance

Bible Verse Hebrews 10:36, 11:1

For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Commentary:

As Christians our endurance comes from the trust we have in Jesus and living daily by the will of God the Father. We do so as followers of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit who helps us to remain steadfast in our faith through trials. As part of our salvation, we have the Holy Spirit who indwells us, giving us the strength we need to face any trials that come our way. In addition, we know because of our relationship with Jesus, we have security in the knowledge of where we will spend eternity. Therefore, our unseen hope and assurance is in our future glory!

In other words, our hope is in Christ alone and the future glory that awaits us when we go to spend eternity in His presence. Our endurance is strengthened because we hope not in what can be gained here on earth, which is here today and gone tomorrow. But on what awaits us back home in the presence of our Lord. And as we remain steadfast through trials by the strength of the Holy Spirit, we gain perseverance and endurance, as we grow spiritually. Our minds and hearts are renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit whose work of sanctification continues on a daily basis. His work changes us from the inside out making us more sensitive to the things of God and His will in our lives.

Armor of God is Required for Service

Ephesians 6:11-16

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all fiery darts of the wicked one.

Knowing the Power of Christ's Resurrection

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.

Seek the Lord in All Humility

James 4:2-7

You lust and do not have, murder and covet and cannot obtain, you fight and war. Yet you have not because you do not ask. You do not receive because you ask wrongly that you may spend it on your pleasures. Do you not know friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously therefore God resists the proud; but gives grace to the humble. Therefore submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Follow Jesus With Your Whole Heart

James 1:12-17

Blessed is he who endures temptation when he has been approved he will receive the crown of life from the Lord. Let no one say, I am tempted by God for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each is tempted away by his own desires and enticed. When desire conceives, it gives birth to sin; and sin brings forth death. Do not be deceived my brethren, every good gift and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

We Are Reconciled to God

Romans 3:23, 5:8-10, 6:23

All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from [the] wrath [to come] through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life... For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Live by Faith, For Victory in Christ

Galatians 2:16-20

Knowing that man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners... For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God.I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Always Ready to Give a Defense

1st Peter 3:15-16

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.

In Jesus is Everlasting Life

John 5:24

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

We Our in the Thoughts of the Lord

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jesus is Faithful

1st John 1:6-7, 9

If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

A Christian's Conduct

Hebrews 13:5-6

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. So we may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Year of Proverbs
for Sunday, May 29, 2016

Happy is the Heart in Humble Confession Before God - (Proverbs 28:13-14)

He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Happy is the man who is always reverent, but he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.


Reading Notes

The Bible often speaks of the "fear of the Lord," a common idiom used to represent a person with a heart of deep love toward God. A heart filled with respect, reverence and awe toward God and His promised Messiah, Christ Jesus our Lord. In other words a person who loves God, presenting themselves in humility and brokenness before the Lord. And it's this type of attitude that's spoken of in these passages. Moreover, this type of attitude is only possible today through a heart in relationship with Christ Jesus our Lord. A heart which has placed its trust in God and the grace Jesus alone can provide. These passages present to us a solid Biblical truth. A person with a heart toward God will prosper in the things of God.

A person who confesses their sins to the Lord in humility and repentance is a person who will prosper and know happiness. Moreover, a person whom God will sustain through trials. The Hebrew word used for "prosper" is 'tsalach." This means to push ahead, to move passed obstacles and trials. To succeed despite the problems faced. Which is accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit, who builds in us perseverance, as we remain steadfast through trials. And that's the point made by these passages! God's truly looking for a person after His own heart, a person in love with Him and His word. He's not seeking religious people, nor those who are proud of heart, nor those seeking worldly success. But rather a person with a heart toward God. Someone who truly loves the Lord, rejoicing in obedience to His word.

Year of Psalms
for Sunday, May 29, 2016

We Hope in God, Because Our Hope in Christ - (Psalm 43:5)

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.


Reading Notes

Those who call themselves children of God, through faith, have hope in the Lord, and that's what we see in this passage. The psalmist, because of his covenant relationship with God, understands that he belongs to the Lord. He loves the Lord and he has placed his trust in God. Therefore, the psalmist is reminding himself of the hope he has in the Lord. And of all people, Christians are the only ones who have this hope today, because through our faith in Jesus we have a relationship with God the Father. Because of our faith in Christ, we have been adopted into the family of God as children of God and joint-heirs with Christ. Because of Jesus, we have hope and not only hope; but eternal life which also brings great joy. We have such a blessing because our hope is well placed in Christ. The apostle John tells us about Jesus, "He is the Word of God and Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." Moreover, in addition to our salvation, we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who strengthens and preserves us.

Therefore, we shall praise Him for He is the only true source of all hope. Jesus the Author of all creation is the source of our eternal life, and because of Him we hope in God. In addition, the Holy Spirit is with us always to lead us, guide us and bring the power of God into our lives through prayer and the study of God's word, the Bible. This means, why should our soul be disquieted within us? Why should our countenance be cast down? Remember, dear Christian there is no power of Hell or scheme of man that can harm the eternal security we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. So rejoice in Him! And it's this hope which the psalmist is reminding himself as he travels. We must remember both the Old Testament and New Testament scriptures speak of Jesus. The Old Testament saints, like us, were saved by faith as the believed God in His promise of the Messiah to come. By faith the trusted in God as they looked forward to the coming of the Messiah who would take away the sins of the world. In a sense the Old Testament saints in faith looked forward to the Cross of Christ, and we the New Testament saints look back in faith to Jesus and what He did on the Cross of Calvary.

Bible Principle for Today

Jesus is our joy, and His soon return is our hope and it's that eager anticipation of the Lord's return which keeps us living a life which is productive and pleasing to God.

Prayer for Today
for Sunday, May 29, 2016

O Father, thank you for the peace that the Spirit brings. Thank you for the peace that comes from the Spirit's presence. Thank you for the peace that the Spirit leads me to find. Forgive me for trying to rush my way through life out of touch with your Spirit and trying to control the circumstances of my life rather than relying on the guidance of the Spirit.
