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 Friday, July 25, 2014

God Promises He Knows Those Who Truly Worship Him - (John 4:23-24)

I will seek after those who worship Me in spirit and truth.


Reading Notes

Jesus has given us so much vital theology in these couple of verses. These passage comes out of His conversation with the woman at the well. And part of that conversation was the woman had asked Jesus which mountain people should worship on? The Jews say the Temple in Jerusalem and the Samaritans chose Mt. Gerizim. However with Jesus death, resurrection and ascension God will complete His plan of redemption for mankind and Jesus is speaking here of that time when true worship will be to worship God the Father, through God the Son Jesus Christ, by our faith in Jesus.

Because of Jesus and His work at the cross the location of worship no longer matters and the rituals of worship are not important. What is important is God is looking for relationship, God is looking for those who love Him, love Christ and have a relationship with God through Christ. Man could never comprehend the invisible God unless He revealed Himself. Because of that God revealed Himself to mankind through the scripture and through the incarnation of Christ. Therefore we must worship God from our hearts with the right heart attitude toward Jesus who is our God and Savior. And by having a relationship with God, a relationship that can only occur through Jesus who makes us children of God.

Your Treasures Follow Your Heart

Bible Verse Matthew 6:19-21,24

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Commentary:

Our world because of its fallen nature has tried its best in one form or another to make us think material wealth is the end goal of everything. The lie of this world is that wealth, fame, power and fortune brings happiness, contentment and an easy life. And that true power and sophistication can be found only among the more expensive things in life. However that is not how God see's wealth! God gives us talents, desires and abilities so that we can use them to provide for ourselves, our families and those in need around us. And God also gave us these gifts to help those spreading the Gospel of Christ.

What we set our heart on shows what we worship! In other words what we love, follow and think about on a daily basis. And that object of affection should be the Lord our God. We must remember as followers of Christ every single Christian who has ever lived and ever will live shall come before Jesus. We will give an account for what we did for God and others with the blessings God has given us. An account of how we used our time, talents and resources for others out of the love we have for Jesus. This judgment will not be for salvation; but for eternal rewards in heaven.

Year of Proverbs
for Friday, July 25, 2014

God Gives Us the Ability to Provide for Ourselves - (Proverbs 16:26)

The person who labors, labors for himself, For his hungry mouth drives him on.


Reading Notes

We live in a fallen world and because of that people do have to labor to provide for themselves and their families. However in the world that we live in God has indeed given us the blessings of work. And we should count it a blessing when we can use our God given talents and abilities to provide for ourselves, our families and help those in need.

As Christians and followers of Christ we should strive to do honest work! The God has heaven has provided for His children and therefore when we cheat, steal or try to get something for nothing or gain what we do not deserve we not only hurt ourselves; but we dishonor God. And the Lord will chastise His children, He will do so because of the love He has for us.

Year of Psalms
for Friday, July 25, 2014

Jesus Righteousness Shall Lift Up the Poor and the Needy - (Psalm 72:12-14)

For He will deliver the needy when he cries, The poor also, and him who has no helper. He will spare the poor and needy, And will save the souls of the needy. He will redeem their life from oppression and violence; And precious shall be their blood in His sight.


Reading Notes

God helps those who are poor, oppressed and in need; those who cry out for Him. These verses give us the ideal for all human rulers to live up to, the standard by which all men should judge and rule. However because of our fallen nature, too often this is seldom the case. The poor and the needy are the group most often subjected to oppression and violence by men. The group of people too easily controlled by those who are wicked.

This occurs despite the fact that God has called all of us to help those in need and look out for those who cannot help themselves. However this will not be the case during the Messianic Kingdom. This will be a time when all wrongs will be righted and a time when man's rule will be no more. A time when the things of this world will be gone forever. A time when the poor and the needy will be rescued so they can live faithfully for God. Why because this is a time when Jesus returns and rules the nations.
