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 Friday, August 29, 2014

God Promises, He Will Be Our Father - (2nd Corinthians 6:18)

I will be a real Father to you.


Reading Notes

When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior several things happen to us including a change in family status. Prior to our salvation we were children of the world at enmity with God, in rebellion against God. However after we accepted Jesus our family status changed, our sins were washed clean by the blood of Christ.

Because of God's Grace through our faith, our relationship with God changed, we became children of God and joint heirs with Jesus. The guarantee of our salvation and the guarantee of our relationship change with God, is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Once we accepted Jesus in faith we were indwelt by the Holy Spirit who will continue to do a work in our hearts and in our lives, bringing us to perfection until we see Jesus face to face.

Jesus Our Perfect Substitute (Part I)

Bible Verse Hebrews 2:17-18

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Commentary:

Because this small section of scripture offers so much to us we'll take in two parts. First Jesus who was fully God, out of His love for us, lowered Himself to take on humanity through the incarnation. Jesus did this so that He could be our perfect substitute, taking our place at the cross of Calvary. We have to remember that God is a perfect and holy God and His laws are just and perfect. Therefore God cannot look the other way when we sin and rebel against Him. God cannot pretend our sin did not occur and give us a free pass. In other words the price for sin has to be paid. And that's where Jesus comes in, because the punishment for sin is death.

There are no works or deeds we can do to earn our way out of sin's penalty and into heaven. In order for Jesus to take the place of mankind to receive the punishment that we deserved, He had to experience humanity; except without our sin nature. Jesus through His incarnation experienced everything that we experienced. He grew weary, needed sleep, became hungry and was tempted in every way. However He did not sin. Jesus did nothing deserving of punishment or death. Despite this He took on death for one reason and one reason alone, and that reason was us. Jesus knowing we could not pay the price, paid it for us with His death at the Cross.

And it's this concept of Jesus becoming a perfect substitute for us that we get the word propitiation. The word carries the meaning that Jesus didn't just pay the price for our sins. But He paid it in full once and for all time, past, present and future. Jesus paid it completely and perfectly. And His resurrection is our guarantee that He is who He claims to be, God in the flesh. Jesus accomplished our freedom from the penalty of sin and in its place gave us the gift of eternity spent in His presence. The proof and guarantee of which was His resurrection and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all followers of Christ.

Selected Bible Verse

Our Selected Daily Bible Verse is made up of selected Bible verses usually consisting of 2-4 verses from all parts of the Bible meant to encourage and build us up as we walk in faith.

 

Jesus Equips Us for Ministry through Faith

Ephesians 4:11-15

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ.

Display the Grace of Christ

Luke 6:36-38

Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

In Everything Give Thanks

1st Thessalonians 5:15-19

See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.

Stay Strong in Christ

Colossians 3:14-17

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

We Have Eternal Life in Christ

Romans 3:22-23, 6:23, 10:11-13, 10:9

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and [all] fall short of the glory of God, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. ...for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Displaying God's Grace in Us

Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

The Blessed Hope of Every Believer

1st Thessalonians 4:12-18

But I would not have you to be ignorant brethren concerning them which are asleep that you sorrow not. By the word of the Lord we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not preceed those who are asleep. The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel with the trump of God: the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Changed in the Twinkling of an Eye

1st Corinthians 15:51-54

Behold I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed In a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption and this mortal shall have put on immortality then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written Death is swallowed up in victory.

Year of Proverbs
for Friday, August 29, 2014

We Help Build as God Builds Us - (Proverbs 27:17)

As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.


Reading Notes

We are called to be in Christ and the iron spoken of here is God's word and a godly life built on following the Lord. Just as we have learned from following God we are to help teach others how to follow the Lord. We are called to be mentors, brothers, fathers, husbands and most of all spiritual leaders.

In addition we called to come along side our fellow brothers to help them, support them and build them up in godly living and the word of god. Moreover as children of God we are called to teach God's word to the young and to study God's word together to encourage each other and sharpen the intellect.

Year of Psalms
for Friday, August 29, 2014

God's Word is His Revelation to Us - (Psalm 33:4-5)

For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.


Reading Notes

These verses capture the reason for our praise and worship of God through Christ. God's word is life to those who are perishing in their trespasses and sins. God's word is justice to those who have been mistreated and persecuted for His names sake.

God's word is mercy to those who do not know Jesus that they may have eternal life. God's word is His revelation to us, divinely inspired through the Holy Spirit that we may know Him more and grow in the knowledge and faith of Jesus Christ our Lord.
