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, October 25, 2014

God Promises He Will Deliver Us - (Colossians 1:12-13)

I delivered you from darkness into the kingdom of My beloved Son.


Reading Notes

We were once dead in our trespasses and sins. Blinded by the darkness of this present world. However God while we were yet sinners God sent His beloved Son to die for us on the Cross of Calvary. Thereby bringing us who were in darkness into the kingdom of light as children of God and joint heirs with Christ.

This God has done for us by His grace, a free gift for all who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Because of our faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior we have been freed from the power of this dark world who is ruled by the prince of the power of the air and transformed into children of God. Our faith in Jesus has made us partakers of the inheritance of the saints!

We Were Chosen and Empowered By Christ for Salvation

Bible Verse Ephesians 1:11-12

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

Commentary:

Jesus chose us before the foundations of the world were laid down. Before we were created God had us in mind and had already begun His plan of redemption. Jesus Christ is the author of creation and He chose us before creation began so that He through our faith in Him could become the divine source of our inheritance. An inheritance given to us by grace, an inheritance which is so certain that God's word speaks of it as if it had already been completed. Another incredible truth about this passage is the phrase "Him who works all things." The word translated here as "works" is where we get the word energy. And it conveys the meaning that Jesus is the God who created all things.

And that He created everything complete and already functioning at the moment of creation. Moreover this means that Jesus not only chose us as a special people unto Himself before creation began. But in addition to our salvation we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who "energizes" or gives us the power to carry out Jesus will for our lives. As we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our day to day walk with Christ, He will strengthen and sustain us in our walk with Jesus. There is nothing more we need! We have everything in Jesus to equip us for His good work as the Holy Spirit carries out the work of changing us from the inside out. Our daily walk is for the worship, glory and praise of God through Christ.

Seeking God's Will

Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Trials Build Faith, Faith Builds Hope

Romans 5:3-5

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

We Are Known by Our Character

Matthew 7:18-20

A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Proclaim the Gospel with Endurance

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

We Are All God's Creation

Isaiah 64:8

And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.

Christ is Evident by the Changes in Our Life

Hebrews 13:15

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

Our Wealth is in Christ and the Salvation He Alone Provides

Proverbs 16:7-9

When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice. A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.

It is More Blessed to Give

Acts 20:35

And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'

We Will See Christ Face to Face

1st Corinthians 13:12-13

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Through the Holy Spirit We Stand in Faith

1st Corinthians 16:13-14

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.

God is With Us

Matthew 1:23

Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name 'Immanuel,' which is translated, 'God with us.'

Year of Proverbs
for Saturday, October 25, 2014

The Good Life, One that Follows the Lord - (Proverbs 15:23-25)

A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is. The way of life winds upward for the wise, That he may turn away from hell below. The Lord will destroy the house of the proud, But He will establish the boundary of the widow.


Reading Notes

When we follow the Lord in humility, relying solely on the Lord for our strength, provision and guidance He can make even our enemies to be at peace with us. We were created for a purpose, each and every one of us has a God size hole in our souls that can only be filled by a relationship with God through Christ Jesus our Lord. And true wisdom can only from a love, respect and reverence for a Holy God who loves us so and the study of His word.

Therefore when we focus on the Lord and let Him guide our lives, in the end we will accomplish things we never thought possible. And do things that we never saw on the horizon for our lives. And the best thing of all is God has more planed for His children than we ever planned for ourselves. And we must also remember no one ever in the history of the world who has given their lives to Christ has ever regretted a lifetime lived for Him and by His guidance.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, October 25, 2014

Confessing Our Sins to God Alone Helps Us to Grow - (Psalm 32:5)

I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah


Reading Notes

One of the attributes of God is His omniscience, this means God knows everything. He knows the beginning from the end, He knows the true motives behind every deed and action we take. And most of all God knows our hearts and He knows our weakness and that is why He sent His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus paid the price for our sins we could not afford to pay and in doing so He has set us free through His grace. God did this because He loves us dearly. Prayer and confession to God, are not for God's sake; but for ours and for our benefit too!

Even though we are forgiven for our sins past, present and future, confessing our sins before God helps us in several ways. First it brings the power of the Holy Spirit to work on our hearts as our confession brings humility to our souls and allows the Holy Spirit to change our hearts. Second it puts our sin in the proper perspective which is rebellion against God. And finally it restores our relationship with God so that we can continue to walk with the Lord and hear the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives as the process of sanctification continues until we go to be home with the Lord.

Bible Principle for Today
for Saturday, October 25, 2014

God is in control and He has eternity in mind for us, though trials may happen because of our sin, the sin of others and the fallen world we live in, we must never forget adversity is a bridge to a deeper relationship with God.

Prayer for Today
for Saturday, October 25, 2014

Almighty God, thank you for the Holy Spirit's presence within me. I openly submit my heart to have it formed and shaped to reflect the heart of Jesus. I want the character and compassion of my Lord to come to life in me. I want my life to be used as your influence on others, empowered by the Holy Spirit to help them come to maturity in Jesus. I choose, dear Father, to dance with the Spirit and let the Spirit lead me in this mission to see Jesus formed in me and in those you have chosen for my life to influence.
