Why We're Here

It's estimated there are almost three billion people in the world today, who are still unreached with the Gospel Message of salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ our Lord. And it is estimated that more than 3 billion people are now using the internet. The number of internet users has increased from 738 million in 2000 to over 3 billion in 2015. In North America alone, nearly two-thirds of the adults who use the internet will use it for faith related matters. Just as the Roman roads opened up the known world during the New Testament times to the spread of the Gospel, today the internet is providing a way to take the Gospel around the world in a very effective way. Our vision is to use this new Roman road to help Christians around the world grow in their faith and increase their knowledge and understanding of Jesus, God's plan of redemption through faith alone in Him and the Bible.

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, October 26, 2016

God Promises He is Our Shelter, We Can Cry Out to Him - (Psalm 61:2-3)

I am your shelter and a place of safety from your enemies.

Reading Notes

David most likely wrote this psalm when he was on the run from his enemies. During the last half of Saul's reign as king of unified Israel, Saul had used the resources of the kingdom to hunt down David in an effort to kill him. Not because of any wrong doing on David's part, but because Saul, who was in rebellion against God, knew God had anointed David the next king of Israel. In these passages, David reminds us, God is our rock! He is our salvation and there is no where we can go where God is not there, and no where we can hide where God cannot see us, and be there with us. God is always near us and He is always with us and nothing is hidden from the eyes of God. Moreover, all those who place their faith in Christ are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who guides us. And it's the Holy Spirit who carries out God's work of sanctification in us, until the day of our perfection when we see Jesus face to face. Sanctification is God's work of spiritual growth carried out in us, by the Holy Spirit. Moreover, we can hinder or accelerate this process of spiritual growth by our love for the Lord, our study of His word and by our submission to the day to day guidance of the Holy Spirit.

And it's through the work of the Holy Spirit that God leads us, and watches over all those who belong to Him. David knew this first hand as God had guided and saved David on numerous occasions when he lived a life on the run, as a fugitive from King Saul. And it was during these times that David often wrote about the Messiah to come and how He would save His people Israel. As we read the story of David and other patriarchs of the Bible, we gain a better understanding that even though there will be times in our lives when we feel God is far from us, times when we feel our enemies are about to overtake us, God is there with us and He will never leave, nor forsake us. This means on our part we must remember to cry out to Him first and foremost, and to be in regular prayer and fellowship with the Lord before times of trouble come. Moreover, we are to rely on Jesus who is the "Rock of our Salvation" and not on ourselves. Jesus alone is faithful and able to save us, and He alone can deliver us from the penalty of sin and the spiritual warfare that goes on around us. And it's because we live in a fallen world at enmity with God that He has sent us His Holy Spirit, who indwells us. The Holy Spirit will strengthen us and be there with us through the trials we face, so we are never alone. The Holy Spirit will build us up in Christ, until the time of our glorification when we will see Jesus face to face.

An Evil Tongue Wants to Set the World Ablaze

Bible Verse James 3:3-6

Indeed, we put bits in horses' mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles. And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.


Man is unable to control his tongue and James illustrates this with three clear and well understood examples. The bit and the horse, the rudder and the ship and the spark of fire in the forest. Given our sin nature which exists in the hearts of all people, we alone under our own power are unable to control our tongue one-hundred percent of the time. Our sin nature and the fallen world around us produces envy, strife and especially pride. And it's pride which James mentions here as the little fire that kindles an entire forest. And those wicked desires which stem from the sin in our hearts display them in our speech. James further drives home this point with his examples. For instance the majestic and powerful horse is controlled just by a small bit in their mouth. A large ship which carries many men and cargo is controlled by a small rudder. And yet the tongue which is the smallest member of our body can tear lives apart and bring incredible destruction.

And why? Because from it spews the contents of an evil heart set on destruction. It's important for us to understand, that what we speak comes from the source that feeds our souls. If that source is not God in Christ, then it's this dark world and the things of Satan. However, despite this, all is not lost. Because what is impossible for sinful man is possible for a Holy God. And when believers who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit turn their lives over to the Lord, seeking His will in humility and meekness. They gain the ability to control their tongues by the work and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who guides and leads us. This is because we have turned our lives over to God. That's why this ability does not come from us, but comes as a result of our faith. It is another gift of our salvation. And this in turn gets back to James' point in chapter two, that this is yet another work of God, which is evident to those around us indicating the genuineness of our faith.

Blessed Are Those Who Have Their Faith in Christ

Matthew 5:2-11

Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

We Are the Light of Christ

Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Jesus, the Image of the Invisible God

Colossians 1:15-17

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

Christ Image of the Living God

Hebrews 1:1-4,9

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they... To the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.

Our Dwelling Place is With Jesus - (Psalm 91:9-11)

Psalm 91:9-11

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

Submit to God

James 4:7-8

Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

We Were Chosen Before the Foundation of the World

Ephesians 1:3-6

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.

Follow Jesus With Your Whole Heart

Psalm 119:10-12

With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You Blessed are You, O Lord Teach me Your statutes

Blessed Are Those Who Follow Christ

Psalm 119:2-6

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, Who seek Him with the whole heart They also do no iniquity; They walk in His ways. You have commanded us To keep Your precepts diligently. Oh, that my ways were directed To keep Your statutes Then I would not be ashamed, When I look into all Your commandments

Believe in Jesus, Confess Him as Lord

Romans 10:10-13

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

We Are to Help Spread the Good News of Jesus

Romans 10:14-15

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things.

The Wicked Only Have Concern for Themselves - (Proverbs 29:7)

The righteous considers the cause of the poor, But the wicked does not understand such knowledge.

Reading Notes

Here God once again is showing us a characteristic which distinguishes the righteous from the wicked. The righteous have a heart for others, especially the poor. They are concerned for the welfare of their fellow man in all areas of life, socially, physically and spiritually. This is a natural byproduct of a heart in love with the Lord. Those who have a heart for God and a relationship with Him through Christ cannot help but have a heart for those in need. And that is the idea conveyed in these passages. Those who love the Lord, have a heart which is alive and sensitive to the will of God. Whereas the wicked are not concerned with anyone other than themselves because their hearts are dead in their trespasses and sins.

The wicked have no love in their hearts, and therefore have no love for another. This is because a heart in love with self does not have the capacity to love others and put the welfare of others ahead of self. They may feign love in order to gain additional benefits and recognition for themselves. However, their hearts only plot the destruction of others, because in reality they are only striving to fulfill the desires of their flesh. Dear child of God, this behavior in a wicked person, is the sign of their destruction. This behavior confirms their hearts of enmity against God and confirms they have been sealed for destruction. Therefore, it's important for us to understand only Christ can reach such a person. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to touch a heart which is dead in trespasses and sins and restore it back to life again.

Year of Psalms

God's Instruction is More Valuable than Gold - (Psalm 19:7-10)

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Reading Notes

The word used in the Bible for "Law" means instruction or guidance. Therefore, these passages remind us of the value of scripture. They tell us of the value of God's word directly to us, to guide and instruct us. And these passages remind us that God's word is more valuable and more desirable to our souls than fine gold or silver. God's word leads to life, because all of scripture points us to Jesus and the salvation He alone can provide for us! The verses above, give us six terms or words about God's law. These terms, reveal the quality and character of God's law. They are "the law", "testimony", "statutes", "commandments", "judgment" and "fear." In this context the word "fear" means to have a deep reverence and love for God.

In addition, these terms together give us six descriptions of God's Law. They tell us that God's law is perfect, sure, righteous, pure, clean and true. And if we follow the Lord and His word, He promises us the six results which include converting the soul, making the simple wise, rejoicing in our hearts, enlightening our eyes i.e. our minds and that His word is altogether righteous and enduring forever. In addition, because of the salvation given to us by Christ alone, His word is sweeter to us than honey. This is because the word of God, leads to life, because all of scripture points to Jesus. And it was Jesus, who out of His love for us, while being yet sinners He died for us! And through our faith in Him, we not only have salvation, but we also inherit the kingdom of God!

Bible Principle for Today
for Wednesday, October 26, 2016

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.

Prayer for Today
