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, cannot 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 Tuesday, October 06, 2015

God Promises He Watches Over Us and Hears Our Prayers - (1st Peter 3:12)

I watch over you and I listen for your prayers.

Reading Notes

God knows our hearts and He sees our sufferings and He knows everything about believers. We are His children, brought to Him through Christ Jesus our Lord, how can He not but love His children. Therefore He listens and responds to our prayers and because He loves us so much we should remember we can break His heart when we turn away from Him and follow our own ways and sin against Him. Peter adapted this passage from psalms and if we were to say it another way it would be "the eyes of the Lord on those who trust and have faith in him, to guard and care for His children."

Knowing this we can rest in this promise that God watches over us. He has numbered the very hairs of our head and He listens to what we say, think and how we feel. Moreover He set's His face against those who do evil as He looks at us with eternity in His heart. Therefore we should strengthen our relationship with God through our relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord. Because of Jesus we can before God with our prayers and our discussions with God. We should set aside time to be with Him and bring before Him our struggles, our triumphs and our desires for service to Him.

Blessed are the Meek

Bible Verse Matthew 5:1-2, 5:5

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: "Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth."


As Jesus continues to speak, we see a progression in His teaching about the fruits of the spirit. He is now speaking of actions that come from the maturity or spiritual growth of the believer. These are the results of the Holy Spirit's work in the life of the believer. From a world’s point of view, we would think of meekness as some sort of weakness, or fear to face the world. However, that is not what Jesus is speaking about here in this passage. Rather, He speaks of something that would only come from someone who has grown spiritually from following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, what Jesus is referring to as meekness, is really a fruit of the spirit, from our walk with Him. The Greek word used by Matthew is "praus" and it means to have humbleness, or a maturity leading to self-control, or a humble spirit.

The type of humility spoken here, comes from having a confidence in God and a relationship with our Lord and Savior that results in humility. A humility that can only be the result of the Holy Spirit’s work in our hearts and minds. The picture painted by Jesus would be the opposite of the normal arrogance and pride we see in the world system today, from someone who has achieved what society considers success. The meekness spoken of by Jesus comes from the awareness of our sin, contrasted against the gift of grace that has been given to us by God. The humble attitude or spirit mentioned here also implies a sense of service to Jesus, because of what He has done for us. In other words a gentle spirit not given over to retaliation; but rather focused on the things of God, with the knowledge that we will inherit and serve Jesus in His kingdom when He returns.

We Are Not of the World, We Are of Christ

John 15:18-21

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, "A servant is not greater than his master." If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.

The Love of Christ Frees Us from Sin

John 15:22-25

If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, "They hated Me without a cause."

We Are Strengthened in Christ through the Holy Spirit

John 15:26-27

But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.

Jesus Our Good Shepherd

Luke 4:18

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.

Salvation is Found in Christ Alone

John 10:1-2

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

We Belong to Jesus and He Knows His Own

John 10:27-30

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. I and My Father are one.

Our Glorified Bodies Await Us

2nd Corinthians 5:1-4, 6-7

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Absent from the Body, In the Presence of Jesus

2nd Corinthians 5:6-9

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.

Christ Died for Us, We Live for Him

2nd Corinthians 5:14-15, 17

For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

We Are Reconciled to Jesus

2nd Corinthians 5:18-21

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Year of Proverbs
for Tuesday, October 06, 2015

We Are to use Wisdom When Making a Pledge - (Proverbs 17:18)

A man devoid of understanding shakes hands in a pledge, And becomes surety for his friend.

Reading Notes

This is another wonderful verse from God's book of wisdom, where the Lord gives us practical wisdom for our day to day lives. The Lord here is warning us to carefully consider the consequences before making a pledge for anyone else’s debt. The person making the pledge is not wrong for doing so; however if they do not understand what they are actually doing then they lack wisdom and understanding. From God's point of view a pledge means you solemnly swear to carry out the conditions of the agreement for your friend regardless of circumstances.

A pledge is the same as a covenant and it means that you intend to honor the pledge with no consequences to your friend. That means no anger, no resentment, they do not have to pay you back or make it up to you. In other words they are not indebted to you in anyway. If we ourselves cannot sustain the cost of the debt we are not to make ourselves a pledge for it. Rather we are to help our friend to the best of our abilities without making the pledge and leave it at that. Likewise if we are a true friend we are not to ask our friends to become a pledge for us, less we place our friendship in danger.

Year of Psalms
for Tuesday, October 06, 2015

God Instructs Those Who Fear the Lord - (Psalm 25:12-14)

Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.

Reading Notes

Those who fear the Lord, have a deep respect for what the Lord has done for them, as well as a solid understanding of just how dead we all were in our trespasses and sins. We were all without hope in the world. We have to understand when we read about the, "fear of the Lord" in the Old Testament, God's word is not necessarily speaking about being afraid of God. Rather, it's speaking about having a deep down love, honor, respect and awe for God, and what He has done for us. In a very real sense, it means to truly have a heart for God and the things of God. God teaches us through two main tutors. First and foremost is the Holy Spirit who indwells each and every follower of Christ. Second through the word of God, which is the Bible. The Bible was written by the Holy Spirit who inspired the authors to faithfully record God's revelation about Himself and His plan of redemption for mankind. In addition, it's the Holy Spirit who helps us to understand scripture as we read and study the Bible.

Moreover, through God's process of spiritual growth, called "sanctification," which is carried out by the Holy Spirit. We grow in grace, wisdom and the understanding of God and the things of God. And the primary tool the Holy Spirit uses is God's word. Therefore out of our love for the Lord, with a heart toward God, we pay attention to His instruction. We read and study His word, the Bible on a daily basis. We let the Holy Spirit, take the scriptures we read and give us understanding, as well as use them to change the very fabric of our hearts. Through the work of the Holy Spirit and God's word, we become truly devoted followers of Christ. And because we follow the Lord, and because we study His word, God will bless us! He will bless us with all spiritual blessings, which are many. This includes giving us an understanding of the security we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore, as we are counseled directly by the Holy Spirit, who guides us in all wisdom, through the study of God's word, we are also led into the paths of righteousness. And the Holy Spirit will do so for Christ's sake, and for the glory of God the Father.

Bible Principle for Today
for Tuesday, October 06, 2015

God can do anything, if necessary God will move heaven and earth to show us His will... Are we listening for Him? Are we following the promptings of the Holy Spirit which dwells inside of us as children of God?

Prayer for Today
for Tuesday, October 06, 2015

Almighty God, I do believe that because of Jesus, I will never die. Please bless me, dear Father, so that I can make every minute count while I am here in this life. At the same time, dear God, I do look forward to seeing you face to face.
