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 Wednesday, October 01, 2014

God Promises You Will Not Be Tempted Beyond What Your Able - (1st Corinthians 10:13)

I will not let you be tested beyond what you can endure.


Reading Notes

This is such an important verse from God's word for us to remember. And along with this we need to remember what Joseph did when tempted by Potiphar's wife... Joseph ran!. God has promised us that we will not be tempted more than we can bear and this means God will always provide a way out of temptation if we would just take. But we must remember our part, knowing that the closer we walk with the Lord the farther we are from temptation's grasp.

We must always be careful not to play with temptation like Lot did. Lot first saw temptation and thought it looked nice, so he lived near Sodom and Gomorrah. He moved closer and closer to temptation until eventually we read that Lot was living inside the wicked city with his family. In the end Lot's flirting with temptation cost his family dearly. We must also remember the biggest slide into temptation is our pride and arrogance, which can cause us to rely on ourselves and not God with all humility.

Jesus Fortells of His Coming Death and Resurrection

Bible Verse Matthew 16:21–22; 17:22–23; 20:17–19

From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day. Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised up." And they were exceedingly sorrowful.

Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.

Commentary:

This is a turning point in Jesus ministry, this is the whole reason for His incarnation. He is now turning from His public ministry to private instruction as He prepares His disciples for His coming death and resurrection. He is teaching them that He must be given into the hands of sinful men and die for the sins of mankind. As they were traveling to Jerusalem, He was beginning His final journey to the cross.

Jesus has now explained to His disciples for the third time that He was going to Jerusalem to die and that on the third day He would rise from the dead. Jesus did the will of the Father when He (being fully God and fully human) laid down His life that we may live eternally with Him in heaven for those who accept Him as their Lord and savior. This is what the Easter season is all about, this is also the future fulfillment behind the Passover when God freed the Israelites from Egypt. The Passover lamb was a symbol of what was to come in Christ Jesus our Lord.

A Lazy Heart Imagines Great Things to Not Move - (Proverbs 22:13)

The lazy man says, "There is a lion outside I shall be slain in the streets".


Reading Notes

This passage while providing humor for us also brings up a spiritual truth that destroys the lives of many people. Lazy people will do anything and go to great lengths to avoid doing anything. Laziness is a condition of the heart and is the outward expression of a cold heart that has more concern for self than for others. A heart that cares more about self than God or the things of God.

Lazy people want others to cater to their needs because they do not care enough to help those in need around them. And it's interesting to note that the Bible is just as hard on the lazy person, if not more so than the wicked. God's word especially proverbs as a lot condemnation on the lazy person. Because laziness is a condition that not only rebels against the Lord, hurts others by lack of action, but also brings to waste all of the gifts, provisions and blessings of God.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, October 01, 2014

We Abide in the Security of Christ Jesus Our Lord and Savior - (Psalm 91:1-2)

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."


Reading Notes

Psalm ninety-one is a psalm which speaks of the safety of abiding in the presence of the Lord. This psalm speaks of God's sovereignty, His omnipotence and His protection of His people from the ever-present dangers of this dark world we live in. This psalm speaks of terror in general terms as to be applicable to all seasons of life. This allows believers of every age to read this psalm and clearly understand no danger can harm a child of God, unless the Lord specifically allows it. This doesn't mean God is the author of evil; we know evil is the result of this fallen world and free-will. However God may allow things to affect our lives in order to bring about our spiritual growth, show our faith or for our discipline if we stray from God.

The titles used in these passages e.g. "Most High" and "Almighty" refer to God being high above any other power and how God alone is sovereign. And the word "Almighty" speaks of God's omnipotence which is His power as God and creator. And because of these attributes which belong to God alone, we will trust in the Lord for He is our God. With these opening verses the singers in this first section of the chapter are setting up the foundation for our trust in the Lord. The "secret place of the Most High" speaks of intimate place of divine protection which only God knows about and can access. And the phrase, "abide under the shadow of the Almighty" speaks of the safety, care and protection the Lord places of over those who belong to Him.
