Welcome to Daily Bible Online

Daily Bible Online is a non-denominational Christian website devoted to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping believers grow in their Christian faith. Our website offers Bible Search and Study Tools designed to help Christians grow in their understanding and knowledge of the Bible. Our goal is to create online tools to help others explore and study the meaning of scripture as it relates to the entire Bible, Jesus Christ our Lord and God's plan of redemption. All of our scripture studies take into context the surrounding verses, chapter and book, as well as the historical and cultural times of the writer, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

God's Gift of Grace to Us!

Everyone of us has sinned and broken God's laws. Everyone has fallen short of God's perfect standard. All people at one point or another have done something or thought something they're not proud of, something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. Moreover, God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind all the things we do. The Bible says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." And that's what Salvation is all about. All of humanity was born with a sin-nature, and we are separated from God because of our sin. In addition, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. What we consider "good deeds" are god's standard for our normal everyday behavior. If that were not hard enough, we have to remember, no good deeds, no matter how big the sacrifice, erase or remove past sin. There are no scales in Heaven, God is not going to compare our sins against our good deeds, to see which is greater.

That would be like committing a crime, then telling the judge we are not guilty because we did a good deed afterwards. We must remember all sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you and me. God's desire is that all people would spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Therefore, God's salvation is a free gift given by His grace, through faith alone in Jesus alone. God gave us a way to receive forgiveness of all of our sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We know that we are not perfect. Though try as we might, no one can achieve perfection. We cannot behave perfectly all, or even most of the time, and God knows that! And that's why He gave us the gift of salvation which is 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 anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Daily Bible Promises
for Wednesday, March 29, 2017

God Promises He Will Enrich Our Life - (2nd Samuel 22:36)

My gentleness and My shield of salvation will enrich your life.


Reading Notes

Our walk with Jesus enriches our lives. Prior to our salvation, we were blinded by the world. Before Jesus, we saw things only in human terms as they related to our desires and our wants. Our interactions with others was often based on what it meant to us or what we could get out of it. However, all that changed once we were saved by the blood of Christ! After we gave our lives to Jesus, we were indwelt by the Holy Spirit and the process of spiritual growth began as the Holy Spirit carried out His work of sanctification in us. That process of spiritual growth which is carried out by God in our hearts and minds is called sanctification. And it starts a process whereby God removes the blinders from our eyes and changes our hearts and minds. We gain a different perspective on our lives and the world around us.

Through the Holy Spirit's work in us, we can now see things as they relate to the eternity in store for every person. We begin to become sensitive to the things of God, to the teaching of the Holy Spirit and to God's word. Moreover, as this happens the Lord begins to enrich our lives and fill us with a joy that defies worldly expectations. As we grow in Christ our lives take on a new purpose and there is a new meaning to life that transcends the here and now. This is because by faith we're saved by the blood of Christ. Moreover, by faith we entered into the family of God as children of God and joint-heirs with Christ. Through God's process of spiritual growth carried out by the Holy Spirit, we are especially equipped for service in the kingdom of God, and prepared for the Lord's call on our lives. Therefore, we are now sensitive to the things of our Lord, because it's God's kingdom and the eternity that comes with it, which we now inherit through our faith in Him.

Legalism Does Not Come from God!

Bible Verse Galatians 5:8

This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you.

Commentary:

Another characteristic of false teachers is they are not sent by God. In addition, because they are not sent by God, they are not under the guidance or influence of the Holy Spirit! Paul tells the Galatian church, "This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you." With this statement Paul makes two things perfectly clear. One the Judaizers were not sent by God. And second the Judaizers have nothing to do with God the Father, nor with Jesus Christ, who not only called the Galatians, but carried out the works of the spirit among the congregation. Moreover, Paul is making it clear to the Galatians that it is God in His sovereignty who calls all believers to Christ. We have to remember legalism was never from God, because God chose us for salvation before the foundations of the world were laid in place. Paul reminds us of that in his letter to the Ephesians where he tells us, "God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world." Paul also reminds us of this in his second letter to the Thessalonian church, where he says, "God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Dear child of God this is such an important point for us to remember. God's law is perfect and because of our sin nature, it's impossible for mankind to fulfill every aspect of God's perfect law. God gave us His law to act as a mirror to show us our sin! Without the perfect standard of God's law, mankind would be unable to fully understand our fallen state and our need for a savior. Therefore the law was meant to show us, that by the law no flesh can be justified. And therefore, the law shows us our need for a savior. In other words, as we compare ourselves against God's perfect law, it should become clear that all of mankind is in desperate need of a Savior. Moreover, without God's grace made available to mankind by God Himself through the incarnation, mankind would be hopelessly separated from God for all eternity. These are the basic facts of the Gospel and Paul has explained this to the Galatians in order to further demonstrate that legalism originates from Satan and the fallen world we live in. In addition legalism is fed by our sin-nature and our pride. But most importantly, legalism goes against God's grace and therefore is not from God!

God Can Restore a Life Lost to Foolishness - (Proverbs 17:25)

A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him.


Reading Notes

God knows the heartache of a parent who has a wayward and foolish child. The Lord knows the pain every parent feels as they watch their child stumble through life without Christ and in rebellion against God. It can cause grief, heartache and bitterness for those who bore them and love them the most. It can tear our hearts apart as we watch our children cause more heartache, chaos and disasters for themselves because of their determined rebellion against God. However, we must maintain hope, trust and faith in the Lord for whom nothing is impossible. We must remember God is faithful to bring His elect to faith in His timing. Therefore, we are to continue in hope and prayer.

We must understand, we have the most effective resource ever created, the most powerful weapon God has given us for spiritual warfare. And that is prayer, because of Jesus we can come before a God who loves us dearly. And we must never forget the effectual fervent prayer of a child of God avails much. And what seems hopeless for us, what seems impossible before our eyes, is possible for a God who loves us dearly. It may not be on our timetable and it may not happen when we want it to, but remember our timing is not God's timing and God is always faithful to those who belong to Him. Moreover, we must remember what Jesus told us, "He will not loose any the Father has placed in His hands." Therefore, even though it may not appear so to us now, God can restore a life lost in rebellion and sin.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Those Who Belong to God Study His Works and Praise Him! - (Psalm 111:2-5)

The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them. His work is honorable and glorious, and His righteousness endures forever. He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He has given food to those who fear Him; He will ever be mindful of His covenant.


Reading Notes

God alone is sovereign, this means that God alone is in control. However, during our time now, which is called the "church age" or the "time of the Gentiles," we can lose sight of all God has done for us and the world around us. God alone is the Creator of the universe, God alone brings the times and the seasons. And it's God alone who gives us life, love, family, relationships as well as our talents and abilities by which we earn a living. And it's God alone who by His grace, sent His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus our Lord, to give us eternal life through our faith in Him alone. Moreover, through the studying of God's word and the events of the past, we can see how the Lord intervened in the affairs of men in order to bring about His plan of redemption. We can see how God set Israel apart from the other nations and called her to carry out a unique destiny. One that led to the coming of the Messiah, whom we know as Christ Jesus our Lord. We have to remember that the world is heading in a definitive direction, toward a predetermined end.

And unlike the claims of some religions, things are not cyclic. Epochs and times do not repeat themselves. Rather, we are heading toward the culmination of God's plan of redemption for all mankind. Which is the return of Jesus and His reign. Dear child of God, we must understand the culmination of God's plan of redemption is to place all of creation under the lordship of Jesus to the glory of God the Father. And most importantly, that time is quickly approaching. Therefore, we are to remember, we are called to use our time, talents and abilities to spread the Gospel and God's word. As followers of Christ, we are called to remember the works of the Lord and we are to remember the word of the Lord. And by doing so it helps us to seek a deeper relationship with Jesus, who is the Lord. Those God calls His children study His works, we know His mighty deeds done on our behalf and we follow Christ our Lord. And we are ever mindful of His soon return. And because of what we know and because of the truth of God's word, we forever praise the name of Jesus and remember His covenant with us, why? Because it is the only covenant that brings eternal life.
