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 Thursday, March 26, 2015

God Promises He Will Bless Us, We Will Escape Death Through Him - (Psalm 68:19-20)

I carry your burdens every day.


Reading Notes

This song was written by David during a time of God's blessing and joy. Many theologians think this psalm was written when the Ark of the Covenant was restored to Jerusalem. This section of scripture expresses the love and care God has for His people and the majesty He shows to the world. God not only showed His mighty deeds on behalf of His chosen people Israel. God also stepped out of eternity and took on flesh with the incarnation of Christ. God did this so that He Himself could provide salvation for mankind through His very own sacrifice for us. God did this because mankind was unable to save themselves.

Therefore these passages are a benediction, a blessing to the Lord for His daily mercies toward us. And for the salvation God alone provides us through Christ Jesus our Lord who is the promised Messiah spoken of by David and the prophets. Jesus is the true and living God of Heaven who stepped out of eternity and took on flesh in the incarnation. Moreover He saves those whom He calls His own! In addition remember in the end of days the Bible tells us the nation of Israel will come to faith in Jesus. He will save them and they will look upon the one whom they pierced and they will have joy and happiness. This faithful remnant of Israel who come to faith in Jesus are the "natural olive tree" spoken of by the Apostle Paul in chapter eleven of his letter the Hebrews.

Remember the Patience of the Prophets

Bible Verse James 5:9-12

Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord-that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your "Yes," be "Yes," and your "No," "No," lest you fall into judgment.

Commentary:

James in this section of scripture give us some very godly advice. While it may be difficult to do under our own power we are to turn to the Lord for strength. James tells us to look at the conduct of the prophets and the behavior of Job as they went through trials and persecution. And the godly examples of patience and waiting on the Lord they displayed for our edification. The prophets delivered God's messages to the people. Often times their hearts broke over the sins of the people and the impending judgment they knew was coming. Yet in patience they trusted in the Lord and carried out the duties God had called them to. They showed great patience and courage as they trusted in the Lord even though many of them knew they would not see any positive results from their actions. Yet they still trusted in God and completed what God had called them to do. And part of the messages James is giving to his readers helps us to understand we do not always know God's plans, we just know what God has called us to do for now. And ours is to in faith do the best we can to fulfill God's calling on us. Therefore because of our faith with trust in God. We do not complain, we do not grumble against one another, but instead carryout faithfully the work God has called us to do.

This is such an important concept for us to understand. Because often times we may not fully understand why God has called us to a certain task or comprehend why God has let a certain trial touch our lives until much later in our lives. Many times it's only later after we have stepped out in faith that God makes his plans known to us and all the pieces fall into place and we understand. This can be especially true when going through severe trials and we cannot understand why God would let us or our families experience such a trial. Sometimes we may not know till much latter and in some cases it may not be till we see the Lord face to face that we fully understand, but we still trust in the Lord. This why in this section of scripture James reminds us that we trust in the Lord and in not in anything else. This means we do not swear by anything else because we do not have the power or the sovereignty to guarantee things well turn out the way we think they will. This means if we say "yes" then because we are children of God we mean "yes", not "maybe", not "only if I can work things out." But as James tells us let our "Yes," be "Yes," and our "No," be "No." And in humility and integrity be open with one another.

The Lord is God

Psalm 31:14-16

But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, "You are my God." My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me. Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies' sake.

Humble Yourselves Before the Lord

1st Peter 5:6-7

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Be Sober, Satan Walks Like a Roaring Lion

1st Peter 5:8,10-11

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Grace, a Free Gift to All

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Jesus Has Raised Us to Sit Together

Ephesians 2:4-7

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

We Live By The Word of God

Psalm 119:103-105

How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth. Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Jesus is the Way

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Don't Be Troubled, Trust in Christ

John 14:1-3

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

He Who Believes in Jesus, Believes in God

John 14:10-12

Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

Believe in Christ and Follow God's Will God

John 14:12-15

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, keep My commandments.

God's Word Testifies of Jesus

John 5:39

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.

Year of Proverbs

Through Christ We Inherit Glory - (Proverbs 3:33-35)

The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, But He blesses the home of the just. Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble. The wise shall inherit glory, But shame shall be the legacy of fools.


Reading Notes

God looks at all of us with eternity in mind. Compared to eternity, the time we spend here is but a brief moment! Though hard has it may be, we have to remember to keep eternity in mind; because our true reality begins when we see Jesus face to face. For those who have placed their faith in Christ, we have the blessing of the Holy Spirit who indwells and guides us now and the overwhelming future blessings of living with Jesus for all of eternity.

Though it may seem the wicked prosper for now that is only because we live in a fallen world where evil reigns. The wicked are not prospering in God's eyes, instead they are building up wrath for the judgment to come. Remember only those things we do out of our love for Christ and others becomes our reward in eternity; all else is burned away as garbage. Therefore we must remember that no one can enter Heaven without Jesus and human success here on earth has no relevance to our eternal security with Jesus.

Year of Psalms
for Thursday, March 26, 2015

God is Our Warrior and Our Shield - (Psalm 18:35-41)

You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, So my feet did not slip. I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; Neither did I turn back again till they were destroyed. I have wounded them, So that they could not rise; They have fallen under my feet. For You have armed me with strength for the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. You have also given me the necks of my enemies, So that I destroyed those who hated me. They cried out, but there was none to save; Even to the Lord, but He did not answer them.


Reading Notes

The imagery of battle armor speaks of God's provision for the righteous who place their faith in God alone and can be found in both the Old and New Testaments. David here is not bragging; but rather emphasizing that God Himself is our Warrior and He alone outfits His servants for battle. David goes on to boast in God's defense of His people and notes that the enemy cried out to their god's; but all proved to be false before the Lord.

We have to remember this is not just a story for long ago it's relevant for today as well as in the future. God will not only defend His people; those who place their faith in Christ alone. But when Jesus returns it will be in judgment and for those who have rejected Him it will be too late. Therefore we are to be about the Father's business, helping those in need and bringing souls to Christ.

Bible Principle for Today
for Thursday, March 26, 2015

Everything built of ourselves is not everlasting, God will test our works with fire, so we must never forget anything we build or acquire outside of God's will... eventually turns to ashes.

Prayer for Today
for Thursday, March 26, 2015

O God, thank you for the Holy Spirit. I acknowledge that I need the Holy Spirit's influence and presence in my life. When I lose sight of the Spirit's work, my soul feels parched and weary. Dear Jesus, as I pray this prayer in your name, I trust that you will help me recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit you have given me. Amen.
