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, April 26, 2017

God Promises He His Love for Us is More Precious than Life - (Psalm 63:3)

My lovingkindness is more precious than life.


Reading Notes

Jesus hasn't only promised us life; but He promised us life more abundantly. That abundance comes from Him. From His loving kindness shown to us when we were still sinners. His loving kindness which is realized by us once we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. God's overwhelming love toward us when we become His children through Christ, opens our eyes to God's perspective on our lives and the world around us. Whereas previously, we were blinded by focusing on ourselves and our small part of the world, His love for us changes our perspective, because it changes our hearts. Through the Holy Spirit's work of sanctification in our hearts, we are changed from the inside out. We are transformed from children lost in a fallen world, into children of God with the inheritance of His kingdom.

Through God's guidance we see our lives from God's perspective, through a heavenly perspective. This is because God has placed eternity in the hearts of those He calls His children. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who begins His work of sanctification. Sanctification is God's process of spiritual growth carried out inside of us by God. This is possible because with our salvation God has given us a new spirit as we are adopted into the family of God. Moreover, sanctification is a lifelong process whereby God changes us from the inside out. God puts eternity in our hearts and makes us more sensitive to the things of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives. By this process along with the study and reading of God's word we are transformed into followers of Christ. Through faith we become children of God, productive in the kingdom of God for His glory, helping those in need around us.

Abide Under the Shadow of the Almighty

Psalm 91:1-6

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

Lord is My Hiding Place

Psalm 32:7

You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

The Lord is Always With Us

Psalm 91:15-16

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.

Speak the Language

1st Corinthians 9:22–23

I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.

Prepared for Service

2nd Timothy 2:1, 3-7

You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. The hard-working farmer must be first to partake of the crops. Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.

Suffering for the Sake of Christ

Matthew 5:11-12

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Our Reward is in Christ Jesus

1st Peter 3:13-14

Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don't worry or be afraid of their threats.

Fragrance of the Gospel

2nd Corinthians 2:14-15

But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ's triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.

Seek First God's Kingdom

Matthew 6:31-34

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. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

Mercy and Kindness

Galatians 6:1

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

The Lord is Good

Psalm 107:1

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Year of Proverbs

As Leaders or Followers We Represent Christ Always - (Proverbs 16:14-15)

As messengers of death is the king's wrath, but a wise man will appease it. In the light of the king's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain.


Reading Notes

Those in power and those who rule over others are required by God to use their power for good. To help those around them, those who they rule over. They are not to use it for evil or to abuse others for selfish gain. But whatever direction they choose, however they choose to act they do so in the presence of the Lord Himself. God can place us in positions of influence and He can remove us as well! Sometimes He will remove us quietly or quite dramatically depending on our sin. This is especially important for us to remember as followers of Christ. As children of God adopted into the family of God, by our faith in Jesus, we are called to obey our leaders and do our very best to carry out our duties.

As long as those duties do not conflict against God and His word. Likewise Christians who are in leadership are doubly required to manage wisely. As followers of Jesus, we are not to withhold good from those whom good is due, when it is in their power to do so. When we function in a leadership role we must remember in business or personal life we represent Jesus. Business is no excuse to harm or hurt others for our own benefit. Moreover, God will hold us responsible for all of our actions as well as those times we fail to act when we should have. And we must remember its the fallen world we live in, which has separated our lives of faith from our lives at work. However, and this is important to understand, God has never separated the two and we are responsible for our behavior in all aspects of our life, including our personal as well as are work life.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, April 26, 2017

God Has Promised His Land to His People - (Psalm 85:1-2)

Lord, You have been favorable to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob. You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin. Selah


Reading Notes

This psalm is a prayer and a pledge to God for His faithfulness. This psalm is probably picturing the return from Babylonian exile as the Jewish people came back from Babylon to re-inhabit the land. Their time of judgment was over and God, true to His word has restored them back to the land of Israel. However, because of the sins of the people, they were still suffering persecution. The people who had moved into the area after the exile of Judah were not happy to see them return and as a result, they did whatever they could do, to thwart the efforts to rebuild. Therefore, the people were once again turning toward God for help. God throughout His word and through His prophets has always promised the land of Israel to the Jewish people.

And this promise has not changed, the land of Israel belongs to God's chosen people Israel, and it does not belong to anyone else. It's not to be shared because this is the land God promised to His chosen people, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Regardless of man's claims God has promised to restore His people to their land. And here the psalmist is praising God for that promise and for covering the sins of the people. The ultimate fulfillment of this promise will be during the Messianic Kingdom after the return of Jesus. A time when Israel will not only be given all of the land promised to her, but Jesus will rule and reign from Jerusalem. A time when the nation of Israel as a whole will come to faith in Jesus and the faithful remnant will dwell in the land.
