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 Saturday, May 30, 2015

God Promises Us, He Will Use the Weak to Confound the Strong - (1st Corinthians 1:27)

I have chosen the weak things of this world to confound the strong.


Reading Notes

The world looks at the superficial; however, God looks at the heart. The world is enamored with appearances, wealth and power; however, God is enamored with the heart in love with Him. It's the heart of a person that really defines who they are and what they are about. God knows this and that's why the Lord looks at the heart of a person and chooses those things the world often overlooks. And God uses the simple things to put to shame the things of men. Salvation has nothing to do with the things of the world or success. Salvation has nothing to do with our social status or how the world perceives us, rather it has to do with our heart toward God. When God brings us to salvation He does so in such a way that no one can boast. Not one single person can do anything to make God save them! There is nothing we can do that will impress God enough to make Him send us to heaven. As the Bible tells us, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

And this is why it's so important we understand that there is no amount of works, no amount of religious activities, no amount of wealth, fame, looks or power that can get us into heaven under our own merit. Instead, God saves us by the blood of Christ and our faith in Him! When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God does the work and gives us the gift. Our responsibility is to accept or reject the free gift of grace extended to us out of God's love for us. We do so knowing that our acceptance of Jesus is preceded by humility and repentance as we are drawn by the Holy Spirit to Christ. Whereas rejection is more often than not the result of pride, love of sin and a heart dead in its trespasses. We should always remember who we are in Christ, and we should often look back at the great people of faith in the Bible. They were not always the richest, the strongest nor the wisest; but they had one thing in common, a great faith in God and a strong love for the Lord.

Christmas, A Glimpse of Future Peace on Earth

Bible Verse Isaiah 9:7

Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Commentary:

Jesus Christ born to us on Christmas day. A gift from God the Father, Jesus who is fully God and fully human gave us the gift of Salvation. But did you know He will also give us the gift of joy and peace on earth forever more when He returns? But before Jesus takes on His government, He took on the cross for us.

Before Jesus put on the crown of everlasting righteousness He put on the crown of thorns for us. And best gift yet to come is He is coming back for us! In a twinkling of an eye we will meet Jesus in the air to be with Him forever more. In addition we have the gift of returning with Him when He rules. When Jesus returns with us the heavens will roll back like a scroll, all of the stars will fall from the sky, and He himself will be our light.

Spreading the Gospel of Christ

Matthew 28:19-20

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you...

The Work of the Gospel is the Lost

Matthew 9:35-38

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."

The Lord is Near to All Who Call Upon Him

Psalm 145:18-21

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The Lord preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh shall bless His holy name Forever and ever.

The Lord is Mercy and Truth

Psalm 25:8-10

Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies

Everything is Possible in Christ

Luke 1:37,49-50

For with God nothing will be impossible. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.

Jesus Rebukes the Proud

Proverbs 16:18-20

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

Man's Ways Lead to Death

Proverbs 14:11-12, 14

The house of the wicked will be overthrown, But the tent of the upright will flourish. There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, But a good man will be satisfied from above.

The Wise Trust in Christ

Proverbs 14:15-16, 18

The simple believes every word, But the prudent considers well his steps. A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. The simple inherit folly, But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.

Year of Proverbs
for Saturday, May 30, 2015

The Lazy Man is Evidenced by the State of His Affairs - (Proverbs 24:30-34)

I went by the field of the lazy man, And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding; And there it was, all overgrown with thorns; Its surface was covered with nettles; Its stone wall was broken down. When I saw it, I considered it well; I looked on it and received instruction: A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest; So shall your poverty come like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.


Reading Notes

The heart of the lazy man is evidenced by the state of his affairs. Here the overgrown field of the lazy man bears testimony to the cause of his poverty. He is too lazy to even provide for himself and his family. Therefore the field of the lazy man is overgrown and unattended. So too is the heart of those who claim to follow Christ and yet do not walk in His footsteps or precepts. These passages provide not only practical, but also a spiritual example for the Christian. The Christian faith is an active faith. Once saved by faith in Christ, God through the Holy Spirit begins a work in our hearts changing us from the inside out. This change is carried out by God and is meant to prepare us for service in God's kingdom.

In addition, we are called to both provide for our family and to follow Christ, one does not preclude the other. As Jesus told us we are to take up our cross and follow Him. Which means every day we are to be following the guidance of the Holy Spirit as He guides us in our walk with the Lord. And this includes providing for ourselves and our families, both for their physical and spiritual needs. We are to be doing so daily in order to prevent the fields of our hearts from becoming overgrown with the cares of this world. We cannot become lazy in following Christ Jesus our Lord or the study of His word.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, May 30, 2015

Who is Greater than Our God? - (Psalm 77:10-13)

And I said, "This is my anguish; But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High." I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will also meditate on all Your work, And talk of Your deeds. Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary; Who is so great a God as our God?


Reading Notes

The phrase "right hand of the Most High" is an idiom which represents the power, majesty and mighty work of God on behalf of His people. In these passages we see a change of heart. The psalmist is repenting for their sins. Even though they had strayed from God, the psalmist asked forgiveness and turned his heart back toward the Lord. After which he recounts all the mighty works God had performed for His people when He delivered them out of Egypt and brought them into the Promised Land.

And we have to remember the spiritual condition of any generation does not change God's plans or promises for His people. Moreover God's greatest work, His mightiest deed was done through His Son, Christ Jesus our Lord. The incarnation was God's greatest work with mankind. It was the moment the eternal God of the universe stepped out of heaven and took on flesh. That through His death we may spend eternity with Him and have eternal life as He Himself proved by His resurrection. Only Jesus had the power to lay down His life and pick it up again.

Bible Principle for Today
for Saturday, May 30, 2015

Jesus is the head of the church and we are His body, we must never forget the fruit of our labor is often meant for others, and fellowship is a gift and no child of God was ever called to "go it alone" in their walk with the Lord.

Prayer for Today
for Saturday, May 30, 2015

O LORD God, please use your Holy Spirit to guide me into all truth and to recognize when others do not speak your truth. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
