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, December 25, 2014

God Promises He Can Heal Our Broken Heart - (Psalm 147:3)

I will heal your broken heart and mend all your wounds.


Reading Notes

God's principle work is within the hearts of people. Once we accept the salvation offered by Jesus alone through faith alone, the Holy Spirit begins a work in our hearts. Making us sensitive to the will of God and His word as our heart of stone, primarily focused on ourselves gives way to a heart of flesh focused on others and the things of God. Knowing Jesus and having a relationship with Him restores our relationship with God.

Because of our faith in Christ we have a relationship that once again brings us into fellowship with God and fills the Christian heart with a joy that often defies all worldly logic and wisdom. Having this joy is part of our being a light of Christ to the rest of the world. The most difficult part for us is to stop our deeply entrenched compulsion to worry about the things of this world and our standing within the world and to instead focus on Jesus and the saving of souls, why? Because the time is short, the return of Jesus is closer now than it ever was.

Preparing with God's Armor Part II

Bible Verse Ephesians 6:16-18

Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit.

Commentary:

As Paul continues with his description of our heavenly armor we get to see the remaining resources given to by God that we may stand firm in the day of trouble as spiritual attacks come upon us. These are the Shield of Faith, the Helmet of Salvation, the Sword of the Spirit which is God's word and fervent prayer. The first thing we notice is each of these pieces of armor faith, salvation, God's word and prayer are all designed to be used together as one. God never meant these items to be used separately or sparingly for that matter; but they are meant to be used all together going hand in hand and used often. Because only by frequent handling can we become proficient in their use.

And it's only when we use them together as one that we truly become effective for the kingdom of God. See God prepared us for their use because He had first given us the truth of the Gospel by which we were secured and covered with the righteousness of Christ imputed to us by our faith. The shield described in these passages was a large shield which was designed to protect the whole body. This is necessary because the enemy will shoot his flaming arrows at us and it's only by our faith in Christ which becomes our shield meant to quench these fiery darts. Satan's next attack will be toward our minds, he will no doubt try to destroy our assurance of salvation by creating doubt and getting us to doubt our faith. However that is why we wear the Helmet of Salvation.

Because it is the salvation offered by Christ alone, through faith alone which protects our hearts and minds from attack as we trust in the Lord. At this point we are prepared for battle are defenses in Jesus are solid we are ready to stand firm. Therefore we are now ready for are only weapon. This is the same weapon Jesus used to defeat Satan when he attacked Jesus in the wilderness and that is the Word of God. This is our most powerful weapon and like any good solider we must train with it often, like any good soldier we must be thoroughly familiar with our God given weapon of choice. The word of God is so strong, that Satan's only maneuver is to keep us from reading it. Because Satan knows once we understand and learn to wield this weapon that we truly become effective in the hands of God.

Delight in the Law of the Lord

Psalm 1:2-3

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

Blessed is the One Who Seeks the Lord

Psalm 1:1, 3

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

Jesus is Faithful

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord is God

Jeremiah 33:2-3

Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it (the Lord is His name): Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.

Present Yourselves Before the Lord

2nd Timothy 2:14-16

Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.

Anything is Possible With God

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah, Lord God Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.

Jesus Calls to Us

Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Seek the Lord

Matthew 6:33

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Sufficient for Today is the Lord

Matthew 6:31-32,34

Therefore do not worry, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Patience in God's Perfect Work

James 1:2-4

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

We Are the Workmanship of God

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Year of Proverbs
for Thursday, December 25, 2014

God's People are to Beware Immorality - (Proverbs 23:26-28)

My son, give me your heart, And let your eyes observe my ways. For a harlot is a deep pit, And a seductress is a narrow well. She also lies in wait as for a victim, And increases the unfaithful among men.


Reading Notes

As we near the end of the chapter we receive more practical advice for living out our day-to-day lives in a Godly manner. Here the proverbs speak of immorality. And oh! How satan loves to bring down Christians with immorality. Sexual immorality is one of those sins that destroys lives because it destroys marriages, families and careers and it can also set flames to the legacy of fruit developed over the lifetime of the Christian.

This is why satan loves to catch Christians with immorality, because he knows if can do so he cannot only destroy their lives, but also the legacy they have built up over a lifetime. And we must remember the cleverness of evil, it will lie in wait for that moment when our pride is high and our ego has peaked and we're sure we can stand in our own will. It's then that it will attack subtly at first, but with every intention of total destruction. Therefore dear Christian stand in Christ.

Year of Psalms
for Thursday, December 25, 2014

The World Will Be Firmly Established Under the Rule of Jesus - (Psalm 96:9-10)

Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness Tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns; The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously."


Reading Notes

These verses show us the sovereignty and majesty of the Lord our God. We will worship the Lord Jesus Christ because of His beauty and holiness and the splendor of His majesty. These passages inform us of the stability of the Lord's reign. The phrase, "world is firmly established" speaks of the stability the world will have as all chaos and international turmoil ceases under the kingship of Jesus the Messiah during the Millennial Kingdom.

This is because Jesus will rule the nations with perfect justice and perfect love. This is because of the unchanging nature of God which rules the world during this time with secure moral principles based on the righteousness of God's character and not the desires of men. This will be a time of the universal rule of the one true God who is above all other gods. This righteous King, this Messiah is none other than Christ Jesus our Lord. And He shall not be moved.

Bible Principle for Today
for Thursday, December 25, 2014

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 Thursday, December 25, 2014

Forgive me, dear Father, for the sinfulness, short-sightedness, and silliness that I have, at times, shown. I want to serve you with an undivided heart, cleansed by your forgiveness and the transforming power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you! In Jesus' name. Amen.
