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 Saturday, June 24, 2017

God Promises to be a Father to Us - (Galatians 4:6)

I sent the Spirit of My Son into your heart so you could call Me Father.


Reading Notes

Jesus is the eternal God of Heaven, who stepped out of eternity and took on humanity. And when He did so He forever joined His divinity with our humanity, becoming both fully God and fully man. This was necessary in order for Him to take our place on the Cross of Calvary and fully pay the price for our sins. We have to understand only humanity can take the place of humanity. There is no amount of animal sacrifices or good deeds that can erase the past sins of a person. There are no scales in Heaven, God's not going to weigh our good deeds against our bad deeds and see which is more. Moreover, only someone who is sinless can take the place of a sinner. And because God is holy no amount of sin, no matter how small can exist in the presence of God. Also God is perfectly just, this means all sin in both thought and deed, no matter how small or how large has a price to pay, all sin has to be judged by God. Why? Because all sin no matter how small is rebellion against God. And the price for sin is eternal separation from God because of His holiness. This means mankind has no ability to atone for their own sin. Therefore God Himself stepped out of eternity and took on humanity to pay that price for us.

Jesus came to do what we could not do ourselves. Which is to provide atonement for our sins through His death on the Cross. Jesus who was completely sinless and perfect took on the punishment we deserved. Only He could pay the price to free us from the penalty of sin which is death and eternal separation from God. And because of what Jesus did for us at the Cross of Calvary and our faith in Him, we have become children of God through faith. Jesus once and for all times paid the price for our sins. Therefore, by accepting Him as our Lord and Savior, we become adopted into the family of God. Not only as children of God, but also as joint heirs with Jesus in the kingdom of God. And as our guarantee of salvation when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God gives us the indwelling of His Holy Spirit who changes us from the inside out. The Bible says prior to our salvation, our hearts were dead in our trespasses and sins. But the Holy Spirit comes and touches our hearts. The Holy Spirit's touch helps us to understand and open our hearts to the salvation provided by Christ Jesus our Lord. And with our salvation, we receive a new spirit, making us alive to God and the things of God. From that point forward the Holy Spirit, then begins a lifelong work of spiritual growth in us, changing us as we grow in Christ and the knowledge of God's word, the Bible.

Power of the Holy Spirit Saves Souls

Bible Verse 1st Corinthians 2:4-5

My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Commentary:

One of the most important things for us to remember when we spread the Gospel of Christ is what Paul taught and modeled for us. That Jesus is everything, He is our source, He is our reason for hope, and He is the power by which we live an abundant life in God and we are nothing. We are not to puff ourselves up in any way that may cause others to admire us and not Jesus. When we preach God's word, we are not doing so in order to build our own career! We are doing so because of our love for Jesus. Because there is nothing that drives us more to spread the good news of grace, through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord, than our love for Him! This also means we are not to build up ourselves, present ourselves as being something or from pride show others how great we are, in order to preach the love of Jesus.

It's human nature to want to tell others about all the things we accomplished, list our success before we tell them about the Gospel and that's not what Christianity is about. We want others to rely on Jesus and the power of His word, the Bible. We should never make ourselves the toll booth between Jesus and lost souls. Remembering always, we are nothing more than a bond servant of the Lord! And it's the glory of Jesus our master we seek, not our own recognition! For it is the power of Jesus and Him crucified that saves the souls of men and not our words! Therefore, we remember every soul we share with is precious in the sight of the Lord. It's a mystery to the world that God did this for us because He loves us so much. The world does not understand that God Himself, stepped out of eternity, took on humanity and died for us, that we may live for Him. And it's our joy and our privilege to preach Jesus and Him crucified to those who are lost, thereby working with the Holy Spirit to free the souls of all people, who are trapped in darkness, as we once were.

Year of Proverbs

The Wicked Require Deceit to Bring Destruction - (Proverbs 26:18-19)

Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death, is the man who deceives his neighbor, and says, "I was only joking."


Reading Notes

Once again, God is giving us a view into the hearts of the wicked. A look into the hearts of fallen humanity, tainted by our sin-nature. A place where only destruction, lies, hatred and rebellion live. Here, the Bible paints for us the picture of a crazed archer who is shooting both arrows, as well as arrows lit with flames anywhere and everywhere he can. He does so without discrimination. The archer is firing these arrows in order to cause as much damage and chaos as possible, to hurt and kill others. And that's the picture painted here in these passages. Then after painting this picture in our mind's eye the Bible gives us a spiritual truth.

The Bible tells us, "so is the heart of the wicked." We have to remember the wicked thrive on deceit. The wicked use deceit to harm their neighbors. They themselves want to escape harm, loss or judgment, therefore they use deceit to destroy others. Moreover, we have to understand the wicked desire the destruction of others. That is why the wicked use deceit to destroy the very communities in which they live. The wicked rely on deceit to carry out their work. With their hearts full of destruction, hatred and rebellion, they rely on lies in order to succeed in their plans. And they do so not only with a lack of concern for others, but has these passages point out, they do so with a desire for the destruction of others.

Year of Psalms
for Saturday, June 24, 2017

God Wants Relationship, He Will Show Christ to Those Who Seek Him - (Psalm 50:22-23)

"Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver: whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God."


Reading Notes

We should remember this psalm was a claim against the people who trust in religion and ritual rather than having a true relationship with God. The people had forgotten God and forgotten His promise of the Messiah to come, whom we know today as Christ Jesus our Lord. And we mustn't forget the group of people God is addressing in these passages, are those who claim they belong to Him. The people had a covenant relationship with God, however, they had turned their hearts far from God. They loved not the Lord, but the world around them. The people were guilty of two things, ritualism and rebellion. Instead of relying on God by faith, they relied on the acts of religion or "attending church" as we would say today. They relied not on God, but on the ceremonies of religion and lost sight of two very important things. They lost sight of the purpose and the meaning behind the ceremonies and they lost sight of their relationship with God through faith. They set their eyes not on God, but on the things of the world and on idolatry. And that's the message at the heart of these passages. Asaph is calling the people to take their eyes off of the world and instead, turn their hearts back to God.

We have to remember Old Testament saints were saved by their faith in God as well. They trusted God for His promise of the coming Messiah, the promised one who would take upon Himself our sins and restore our broken relationship with God. The Messiah whom we know today as Christ Jesus our Lord. We can say that Old Testament saints believed God by faith and looked forward to the Cross, while we the New Testament saints believe God by faith and look back at the Cross. And the entire purpose of the Mosaic system and God's perfect law was to show the people their sin and show them their need for a Savior. The sacrificial system of the Mosaic law had a purpose, and it pointed forward to the perfect "Lamb of God" who was to come. The one who would save them and us, thereby removing the penalty for our sins. God credited their faith in the promises of His word, not their works as righteousness. And this passage as well as others, remind us that God is true to His elect. If we earnestly seek Him with all our heart, He will make Christ known to us, and thereby show us the salvation of God, so that through faith in Jesus, we may spend eternity with Him. And when we stray from God, because of His immense love for us, He will do what it takes to warn us and seek the restoration of our relationship with Him, through faith.

Bible Principle for Today
for Saturday, June 24, 2017

What's important to God is our relationship with Him, and it's His highest priority. Our relationship with God determines the impact our lives have on those around us and the impact we have on the kingdom of God.
