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 Sunday, November 23, 2014

God Promises We Will Flourish in His Courts Forever - (Psalm 92:12-14)

I will make you fruitful in your old age.


Reading Notes

Because of Jesus and through our faith in Him alone for salvation we now have a close relationship with God the Father. And through our faith and God’s mercy and love for us we become like a tree planted in the courtyard of the Lord as we are nourished through the Holy Spirit who draws us closer to God through Christ. The Holy Spirit also builds us stronger in the knowledge of Jesus through the study of God’s word the Bible. These passages speak of our blessings now through salvation and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and our future state when we see Jesus face to face.

Like the palm tree which never seems to age, we will have an enduring presence with the Lord because we are now part of the family of God through our adoption as children of God through Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore we will always praise the Lord. Here the cedar and the palm symbolized permanence and strength and we are given both permanence and strength through the Holy Spirit who strengthens us and the word of God which prepares us for service to the Lord. As we study the Bible we flourish and grow in Christ and the joy of knowing Him and the redemption He alone has brought us.

We Are God's Living Stones

Bible Verse 1st Peter 2:5

And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What's more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.

Commentary:

Dear believers we are the stones which build the spiritual house of God. Each of us different and serving a specific purpose. Each one of us designed for a specific purpose by God because each one of us were in the thoughts and heart of God before the foundations of the world were laid down. Each of us integrated into the body of Christ as part of our inheritance given to us by the blood of Jesus shed for us. Together we share in the lives of each other, becoming one in the body of Christ. Every one of us equipped especially by God in a unique way for His service.

God has equipped us to spread the Good News of salvation through Christ alone, by faith alone in Him. God's gift to us is the forgiveness of sins and eternal life through Jesus. The privilege of our position in Jesus is our access to God as children of God through the work of Jesus at the cross. Therefore we offer back to God our hearts through our relationship with God. And because of the love we have for Jesus we serve others with joy in our hearts as we are directed by the Holy Spirit. Serving others for the glory of God, the love we have for Jesus and the joy of saving of souls lost in this world of darkness.

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.

We Enter the Holy of Holies, Through Christ

Hebrews 10:19-22

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

Perseverance Through Our Faith in Christ

2nd Peter 1:5-8

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Stay Strong in the Word of God

1st Timothy 4:7-8, 4:16

Reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

Year of Proverbs

God Blesses Us, So We May Have Joy Blessing Others - (Proverbs 21:13)

Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be heard.


Reading Notes

God's word here is giving us both practical and spiritual wisdom we can apply to our daily lives. First if we live life where we never reach out, never have friends, never help others then we will most likely find ourselves alone when our time of need arises; without friends and family there is no one to help us when we need it. Secondly God's blessings in our life were never meant for us to horde to ourselves. God blesses us so that we may have joy in blessing those around us and thereby spread the love of Christ to others.

This concept goes as far back as the Old Testament when God instructed farmers not to glean the corners of their field, but to leave them for the poor. God also told the farmers if you missed something do not go back and glean it again; rather leave some behind, so those who are poor or in need can go and harvest food for themselves. This Biblical concept is still expected of us today and though as Christians we will not face judgment we will face Christ and His Bema Seat where we will give an account of what we did with the blessings He gave us.

Year of Psalms
for Sunday, November 23, 2014

The Brevity of Life, Importance of God's Kingdom - (Psalm 90:4-6)

For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past, and like a watch in the night. You carry them away like a flood; They are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up: In the morning it flourishes and grows up; In the evening it is cut down and withers.


Reading Notes

A watch during the night was a four hour period and in the passages above God's word is telling us in God's eyes and in God's timing a thousand years is like a watch in the night. Therefore how much less is the existence of a person's life? Compared to eternity, compared to God's timing we are like a dream in the night or grass that sprouted in the morning and grew during the day and by nightfall is withering away. And we ourselves are like a sleeping person. We never awake to how short our lives really are. We become so caught up in the here and now we never fully awaken to the understanding of the brevity of life.

And before we know it like a flood we are swept away by death. These passages offer us a startling picture of how short our time on earth really is. For us a thousand years is an immense amount of time and yet for God it's like a short watch in the night. How much less then is a life of sixty to eighty years? Dear believer these passages are important for us because they help us to understand how truly short life is. And when our life is over nothing will matter, except what we did for the kingdom of God and what we did with the knowledge of Jesus and who He is to us! Material wealth, possessions and pleasure bring no comfort and moreover in the end they really are the marker of a squandered life.

Bible Principle for Today
for Sunday, November 23, 2014

Jesus paid the price for our sins once and for all time, there is nothing we can do to earn salvation; therefore we must remember it's impossible for God to look past Christ to be angry with us for sins already punished in Jesus, He is our surety.

Prayer for Today
for Sunday, November 23, 2014

Lord help me to rest in your arms even in times of tribulation.
