Saturday's Dose - 30th May 2015

Jesus Christ is The Ultimate Atonement

Today's Scripture

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” - (Ephesians 1:7).

Thoughts for Today

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the ultimate atonement for the sins of mankind. Whatever skeletons are in your closet, whatever dark secrets are in your memory, whatever past is shaming and condemning you, whatever memory is tormenting you—Jesus Christ offers forgiveness and redemption.

Because Jesus rose victoriously from the dead, God assures you that by His death on the cross, your sins can be forgiven. The Resurrection assures you of God’s power—power to illuminate and to enlighten your heart.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ can change people’s hearts from being spiritually dead to being alive in Christ. Because of the Resurrection, hatred can be turned into love. It is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that can change your life.

The Resurrection of Christ assures you of your ultimate triumph. When you place your faith in the risen Christ, comfort and assurance of the future are yours. You will be given a body like His Resurrection body. You will spend eternity with Him.

Jesus came to earth in the form of a human body. One day, He is coming back with spectacular magnificence to bring history to its fulfillment in eternity.

Not only will He raise the dead, but also He will make all things new. Jesus’ Resurrection is a pledge to all of those who surrender to Him—those who dwell under the shadow of His wings, those who ask for and receive His forgiveness, and those who place Him at the center of their lives.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for Christ’s Resurrection. Please forgive my sin and rebellion. I repent and ask for You to be the center of my life, so my life will honor and glorify You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.

Friday's Dose - 29th May 2015

Impossibility of Escape

Today's Scripture

“For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” - (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

Thoughts for Today

A group of Americans was touring Mount Vesuvius in Italy, which was active with volcanic eruptions. One woman, completely awed by the sight of the seething mass of lava and steam, shouted, “It is just like hell.”

One of the Italian villagers standing nearby said to his friend, “These Americans tourists have been everywhere.”
Hell is a destination like no other. Satan’s future in hell is described in Revelation 20:10: “The devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Jesus spoke about the intense suffering of those who will be confined to the lake of fire. He also emphasized the fact that there will be no escape. The symbol of fire is God-given and is used to impress on our minds the horrors of hell. When hell is referred to as a lake of fire, God is accommodating our finite minds, our inability to comprehend all things, our ignorance.

Jesus compares hell to a prison (Matthew 18:34-35). Earthly prisons confine the body, but the spirit remains free. Hell is called an abyss (Luke 8:31), indicating the impossibility of escape or a second chance. It is also described as utter darkness (Matthew 22:13) and as a blazing furnace (Matthew 13:40-42).

C.S. Lewis writes, “There are no personal relationships in hell.” However, God, through grace, has made provision for you to come to a saving knowledge of Him. If you have never met the Savior, today is a good day to pray and ask Him to forgive your sins and to place within your life a sense of eternal hope.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I am a sinner, and I ask You, gracious Savior, for forgiveness. Instill in my heart a feeling of hope and a desire to know You through the Word. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

In Times of Testing

Today's Scripture

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” - (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Thoughts for Today

During the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad, builders had to construct an elaborate trestle across a deep canyon. After it was built, the chief engineer wanted to test it. A train loaded with double the normal train cars and supplies was driven to the middle of the bridge, where it stayed for an entire day.

Someone asked the builder, “Are you trying to break the bridge?” The answer was no. “I am trying to prove that the bridge will not break,” was his reply.

In the same way, God allows us to be tempted by the enemy. There is a spiritual hedge of protection around the life of the believer that can only be penetrated with God’s approval.

In times of testing, God wants to strengthen us through the trials so that we will be made ready for His service.

Prayer is the most powerful form of communication that we have. By teaching the disciples to pray, “Lead us not into temptation,” Jesus was preparing them to face life’s trials and temptations correctly.

The Lord knew the disciples would face many trials and temptations. Their only source of wisdom and help was found in God—“Lead us not.” But the sense of the Greek words used here also implies that there must be necessary training.

God does not allow us to face needless trials. Most of what we face comes as a result of living life in a fallen world. However, we must learn to say no to anything that would prevent us from living holy lives before a holy God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, lead me not into temptation. When I am facing temptation, help me to see the way out You have provided. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Ask God to Forgive our Sins - Wednesday's Dose - 27th May 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 27th May 2015

Ask God to Forgive our Sins

Today's Scripture

Blot out all my iniquity. - (Psalm 51:9).

Thoughts for Today

Many times, we try to cope with the feelings of emptiness that result from sin by burying ourselves in work, relationships, or even church activities. However, until we confess our sin to the Lord, there is no relief.

This is because sin builds a barrier between God and us. Unconfessed sin also leads to feelings of guilt and shame, which make us feel isolated from the only One who can bring lasting peace to our troubled hearts and lives.

In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve hid from the Lord. They had sinned and realized they could not face a holy God. When we allow sin to gain a foothold in our lives, problems quickly arise.

We must deal with the matter immediately. Running away from God is not an option. Jonah ran and ended up in the belly of a big fish. God, however, is merciful. Once Jonah realized his sin and became determined to obey God, he was delivered onto dry land.

Adam and Eve also experienced God’s merciful grace. He made a covering for their sin, and He has done the same for you (Genesis 3:21). Sin demands punishment. This is why Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose from the grave so that you might have eternal life and forgiveness.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” (Luke 11:4). While we know God has forgiven us, we also need to remember that sin can still affect our lives. A lack of forgiveness also can prevent us from experiencing the wonder of God’s joy and peace.

Make sure nothing comes between you and the Lord. The most precious gift you have been given is your relationship with Christ. Seek to grow in it and learn to worship the God who loves you with an everlasting love.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for my relationship with You. Help me to be faithful and to know who I am as Your child. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

Ask God to Deliver from the Evil - Tuesday's Dose - 26th May 2015

Tuesday's Dose - 26th May 2015

Ask God to Deliver from the Evil

Today's Scripture

“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” - (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Thoughts for Today

There was an elderly woman who was known for always having something good to say about others. One day, two young men thought they would trap her. Surely, she would not have anything good to say about Satan. They walked up to her and said, “Tell us: What do you think about the devil?”

The woman paused and then said, “Well, there is only one thing that I can think of—he is always on the job!”

The woman was right. There is nothing good about Satan. However, we can say that he never becomes weary of tempting believers.

This is why Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Deliver us from evil,” which really means, “Deliver us from the evil one.” Jesus did just that on the Cross. He shattered the power of sin and death. The Resurrection is evidence of His victory.

One of Satan’s greatest deceptions is convincing us that it is OK for us to have a little pride in our lives. Ironically, pride was Satan’s own downfall. It was his desire to become like God.

If asked, most of us would say that David’s greatest sin was his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba. However, the root to David’s sin goes much deeper. While other kings were off fighting in battles, David stayed at home—and the enemy made note of it. The king became lazy and self-serving—the right posture for pride to make its mark.

The enemy waited for the right opportunity, and then he tempted David by appealing to his flesh. If you have been drawn away from God through sin, stop what you are doing and turn back to the Lord. Be sure you are following Christ closely and that all you desire begins and ends with Him.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for delivering me from evil on the Cross. Thank You for shattering the power of sin and death. Please hold me close to You, strengthen me and guide me away from laziness and self-service. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
