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, October 23, 2014

God Promises He Will Look After Us Through Trials - (Psalm 23:5)

I will anoint you with oil so your cup overflows.


Reading Notes

In the ancient near east honored guest were anointed with perfumed oils to show not only their status as special guest; but also to show the love the host had for them. This verse uses that same imagery and language here to show just how much God loves us. His love for us is so great that we have joy in Christ despite living among the enemies of God. God loves us so much that He Himself stepped out of eternity and took on flesh in the incarnation of Jesus.

God did this in order to die for our sins that we may spend eternity with Him. God Himself made it possible for mankind to reconcile themselves back to a holy God. In addition God's provisions for our salvation, for the eternity that awaits us are more than abundant, not to mention the joy we have here and now in Christ Jesus our Lord. In this verse the lavish treatment of the honored guest is indicative of the loving care God has for His people.

Paul's Prayer and Blessing for All Believers Part II

Bible Verse Ephesians 3:16-19

That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Commentary:

When Paul speaks of Christ dwelling in us he is not merely speaking of knowing Jesus, nor is he speaking of just accepting the free gift of salvation through Christ and carrying on with our lives never to speak of Jesus again or read God's word. Rather Paul is talking about Jesus making His home in our lives, taking over our hearts and living our lives for Him. That Jesus would settle down, move in, take up residence and make our lives His home. That our hearts would be so consumed with Jesus and what He has done for us that our hearts belong to Him.

And that this love for Christ be reflected in all that we say and do. When this happens and the Holy Spirit fills us with His presence that's when lives not only change, but become transformed into something extraordinarily wonderful for the kingdom of God. And it is this type of spiritual power that marks the lives of those who submit to God's word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And when we love Jesus and we discipline our minds to the study of His word and the following of the Holy Spirit then that's when our lives change. Moreover this power is available to every believer to help us become a fully devoted followers of Christ.

Do Not Desire After the World

John 6:26-29

Jesus answered them and said, Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him. Then they said to Him, What shall we do, that we may work the works of God? Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.

God Abides in You, Cast Out Fear, Show Love

1st John 4:10-11, 15, 18-19

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to pay the price for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.

Armor of God is Required for Service

Ephesians 6:11-16

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all fiery darts of the wicked one.

Knowing the Power of Christ's Resurrection

Philippians 3:10-14

That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Seek the Lord in All Humility

James 4:2-7

You lust and do not have, murder and covet and cannot obtain, you fight and war. Yet you have not because you do not ask. You do not receive because you ask wrongly that you may spend it on your pleasures. Do you not know friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously therefore God resists the proud; but gives grace to the humble. Therefore submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Follow Jesus With Your Whole Heart

James 1:12-17

Blessed is he who endures temptation when he has been approved he will receive the crown of life from the Lord. Let no one say, I am tempted by God for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each is tempted away by his own desires and enticed. When desire conceives, it gives birth to sin; and sin brings forth death. Do not be deceived my brethren, every good gift and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

We Are Reconciled to God

Romans 3:23, 5:8-10, 6:23

All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from [the] wrath [to come] through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life... For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Live by Faith, For Victory in Christ

Galatians 2:16-20

Knowing that man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners... For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God.I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Always Ready to Give a Defense

1st Peter 3:15-16

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.

In Jesus is Everlasting Life

John 5:24

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

We Our in the Thoughts of the Lord

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Year of Proverbs
for Thursday, October 23, 2014

God Has Given Every Man a Responsibility - (Proverbs 27:8)

Like a bird that wanders from its nest Is a man who wanders from his place.


Reading Notes

Like the prodigal son in the parable of Jesus, so is the man who wonders from his home. More than physical distance which is also included in this passage there is a deeper meaning of purpose and responsibility for all men. As men we have a responsibility to take care for our families, to provide for them and to protect them, that is the calling of God on every man.

And when we stray from that God given responsibility we affect the security of our families, the security of our home and of ourselves. Because when we stray we are not only off track, but off duty from our God given purpose and therefore open to temptations that come from wondering. Our families are the basic building block of a Christian society and when we wonder we destroy that building block and hinder the work of Christ in our lives.

Year of Psalms
for Thursday, October 23, 2014

Your Lovingkindness is Always Before Me - (Psalm 26:3-5)

For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. I have hated the assembly of evildoers, And will not sit with the wicked.


Reading Notes

The loyal love of God which brings us from darkness into light, which brings us from death into life is immeasurable and has forever change our lives. We are a new creation because of Christ Jesus our Lord! We are adopted into the family of God, as His children and joint heirs with Christ, because of the work of Jesus at the Cross. His love for us is the difference between life and death.

Jesus work at Gethsemane has made us into a new creation. We are brought forth by salvation. Through the work of the Holy Spirit we have been regenerated and now we are aware of, and sensitive to the things of God, therefore we can answer the call of God. And because of this His loving-kindness is always before our eyes. Therefore we walk with Jesus by faith alone, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
