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

God Promises, He Will Give Us Peace - (2nd Thessalonians 3:16)

I will give you peace at all times and in every situation.


Reading Notes

Wherever you have believers coming together, who love Jesus and who are actively working for the kingdom of God, you will have moments of conflict. This is because there is one thing Satan hates more than a Christian, and that is Christians working together! Whenever believers are actively spreading the Gospel of Christ and working for the kingdom of God, they will always be surrounded by spiritual warfare. We have to understand Satan and his demons know how things end, they know they have lost the battle. Moreover, they know what awaits them! They know where they will spend all of eternity, and because of that fact, their rebellion against God will never stop, until they literally enter into Hell. Therefore, their main activity, their main goal before going to Hell for all eternity, is to get as many people as they can, to act in rebellion against God. In order to hurt God, they want to bring as many people to Hell with them, as they can. Just like they themselves have done, they desire to get as many people as possible to fight against God. They want to move people to reject Jesus and the salvation He alone can provide.

Dear Christian, we have to understand that all people, men and women were created in the image of God! We are God's special creation with a body, soul and spirit. Moreover, God's will first and foremost, is that all people would spend eternity with Him. And because Satan and those demons who follow him, hate God, they especially hate what God loves, which is us, all of humanity! Their main goal is to bring as many of us with them into Hell as they possibly can. They do this to hurt God, because they know they cannot attack God directly, so they attack His beloved creation. That is why Satan hates Christians who are active in their faith and for the Gospel of Christ Jesus our Lord. If he can't run us away completely, then he wants believers so caught up in their day-to-day lives, that they do nothing for the Gospel. Satan and his demons will target Christians who are making a difference for Christ. If you are active in the Gospel, you can bet there will be spiritual warfare waged around you. And it's for this reason Paul reassures us, that since we have placed our faith in Christ, we also need to trust in Him to bring peace and joy into our lives through the working of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will give us guidance, wisdom, peace and joy in our day-to-day walk with the Lord, despite the activity around us.

Jesus Our Gift of Grace and Blessed Hope

Bible Verse Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

Commentary:

Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. Jesus who is God incarnate and grace incarnate. God's gracious gift to mankind this Christmas day. Our gift is Jesus whose sacrifice is sufficient to wash away the sins of all persons who place their faith in Him for salvation. This is our ultimate gift from God this Christmas day. A gift given by grace, through faith that no person may boast in their own righteousness.

Ours is the God given free will to open this gift and accept the grace God has offered us and for the elect who do so we receive eternal life and with it inherit our blessed hope. That blessed hope is the glorious appearing of our Great God and Savior Christ Jesus the Lord. Therefore through this gift of God so lovingly given to us we become a special people, a chosen priesthood of the Lord saved by grace to become Children of God.

Our Behavior Matters to Others and God - (Proverbs 25:24, 26)

It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, than in a house shared with a contentious woman. A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.


Reading Notes

These proverbs speak of the behavior of both men and women. And both of these proverbs are applicable to both men and women. And in both cases, they speak of the person who is living a life without humility and without love for others. When a person is contentious they argue every point. They argue anything and everything and they do so constantly. And when this happens, it can wear out those who love them, but we have to remember this is done out of sin. People who do this, do it not because they are worried about injustice, nor is it because they are just trying to be honest. Often times the statement of "being honest with others," is an excuse to attack those who are unsuspecting. On the contrary, they behave this way because of anger and hatred, as well as pride and ego. These emotions cause them to cruelly criticize others to cause pain and heartache or to make themselves feel justified in their behavior.

They do it as a way to mask the hatred they have in their hearts and because of their pride and ego, they often feel the need to put others down as a means of showing themselves to be superior. The second passage speaks of a righteous person who falters publicly. When this happens, it can cause more harm than good. And this is why it is so necessary for followers of Christ to go about their daily lives with all humility. A person who is prideful and self-righteous can much damage when they falter and fail. Their failure can cause more damage than all the good they have done. They can destroy their legacy of work for the Lord as well as the work of those associated with them. This is because the wicked who see this will then use it as an excuse to impugn the name of Christ as well as God the Father. Therefore, we as followers of Jesus are to show humility as well as care and concern for others, before we show it for ourselves. And by doing so, by acting only out of love for God and others, we will make ourselves blameless before God and man.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Vain is the Salvation of Men, Only God Himself Can Save - (Psalm 108:10-13)

Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me to Edom? Is it not You, O God, who cast us off? And You, O God, who did not go out with our armies? Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.


Reading Notes

These passages came from a section of verses found in Psalm sixty. Passages that recall a military battle between Israel and Edom. A campaign that could not have been won without the direct intervention of God fighting for His people, for the nation of Israel. And here in these passages "Edom" is a general term which has been used to refer to the enemies of God. In addition, this was also a time when Israel was in rebellion against the Lord. The people were not following God's law, they were worshiping the idols of the surrounding Gentile nations. We have to remember that Israel was called to be a nation of priests. They were called to be representatives of the living God of the universe to the surrounding Gentile nations. However, instead of relying on God, they relied on their own ingenuity and the power of their Gentile allies. And what they discovered is that no nation can turn its back on the Lord and not be brought low before other nations. It is one thing for a nation who has never known God, to be in rebellion against the Lord, and quite another for a nation that was founded because of their relationship with God, to rebel against Him.

Therefore, God will chastise His people. God will chastise those who rebel against Him. Moreover, there is no rescue possible by any group of people, that can deliver out of the hands of God and the consequences of deliberate rebellion against the Lord. Why is this important to understand? Because, God will take His chosen people, those who are in rebellion to Him, and He will give them over to destruction by their own lusts. Moreover, as a result of God's chastisement they will be unable to stand before their enemies. God will allow them to suffer the consequences of their rebellion in order to turn their hearts back toward Him. God will allow those He loves to suffer the consequences of their actions if it will restore their relationship with Him. God will do so in order to bring them to the knowledge and understanding that salvation, which comes only from God and only through Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore, this Biblical concept is still relevant for us today because we are hopeless without God! We who are sinful and unable to save ourselves, need the mercy and grace of God! There is no amount of works or good deeds that we can perform to erase our past sin and earn our way to heaven. Only God who is holy and sinless, can provide a way of salvation for broken sinful people. We cannot by our sin nature, produce any type of sinless activity that can earn us merit before God and erase our past sins!

Bible Principle for Today
for Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Jesus paid the price for our sins once and for all time, there is nothing we can do to earn salvation; therefore we must remember it's impossible for God to look past Christ to be angry with us for sins already punished in Jesus, He is our surety.
