5-9 Application for Mar 7-8, 2015 :: Romans 8:31-32

===

What then shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Romans 8:31-32

===

Paul is marveling as he writes this: What then shall we say? How can we begin to speak about the blessing that God has given to us?

He is for us! How do we know? His son died for us. And that’s enough evidence for us to believe that God will give us all manner of lesser good things. He will give us what we need.

Can you remember that this week as you’re memorizing this verse? If you are in Jesus, God is for you! He’s with you. He’s on your side. He’s your champion.

Feel that truth as you walk through what God has placed in your path today.

This week’s passage begins at around 0:38

===

For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.  And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Romans 8:29-30

===

Foreknew, Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified – It’s a ladder to God the Father as a result of the Holy Spirit working in us and salvation provided to us by His Son.

Foreknew, Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified – And we are considered, at least in some ways, brothers and sisters of Jesus.

Foreknew, Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified – This is what will become of you if you repent and believe in Jesus and his work on the cross.

Praise God!

5-7 Application for Feb 22-23, 2015 :: Romans 8:28

===

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

===

Five minutes ago one of my sons came upstairs and told me that he couldn’t sleep. He’d been ill and had the same thing running over and over again in his mind and he told me he needed something to think about.

I happened to be looking at this passage (preparing this post) and I realized that there couldn’t have been a more helpful thing to think about. My son, who I believe is saved, is called, according to God’s purpose. And because of this verse, we can believe (and trust and put our hope in) the truth that all things that happen to him, including poor sleep due to sickness, will work together for good.

There is hope in that. There is encouragement in that. We’re not suffering for nothing. God is working.

May we all feel that when we are in difficult times.
Romans 8

5-3 Application for Feb 15-16, 2015 :: Psalm 121:7-8

5-3 Psalm 121:1-8 I lift up my eyes to the Hills

===

The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 121:7-8

(This week’s passage starts at about 1:30 on the video.)
===

All of the salvation spoken about in Psalm 121 is not for today, or this week, or even for the rest of your life. It’s for forever.

If you are the LORD’s, he is in charge of your safety and he will protect you from permanent harm. No matter what you do.

The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.

Psalm 121:5-6

(This week’s passage starts at about 1:10 on the video.)
===

Have you ever been in the bright hot sun and wished for shade? The sun can damage and cause thirst and weariness. But the LORD is your shade. He protects, and quenches thirst and gives you strength.

He is your keeper. Be kept in him.

5-2 Application for Jan 31-Feb 1, 2015 :: Psalm 121:3-4

5-3 Psalm 121:1-8 I lift up my eyes to the Hills

===

He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

Psalm 121:3-4

(This week’s passage starts at about 0:50 on the video.)
===

God doesn’t sleep. You might think, “He can’t see me,” but he does.

We’re talking about the God who can protect and watch and help a whole nation. He can keep you from tripping up.

Pray to this God. Worship Him. Seek His Help

Psalm121

5-2 Application for Jan 24-25, 2015 :: Psalm 121:1-2

5-3 Psalm 121:1-8 I lift up my eyes to the Hills

===

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2

===

“Where can I get help?”
As I look at my situation (I might be in the hills, or the city, or the sea) I might ask –
“well, who made this place? Who made the place that I now find myself?”

There is only one answer. The LORD did. He can help you.

And He will.

5-2 Application for Jan 17-18, 2015 :: Matthew 9:13

===

“Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:13

===

I had the opportunity to talk about this song with the Kindergarten/First Grade class that I lead every Wednesday night and I told them there are two wrong things to think about salvation:

1. That you’re probably good enough to be accepted by God into his kingdom or
2. That you’re too sinful to be accepted by God into his kingdom.

This verse shows both of these beliefs are wrong. He didn’t come to call the righteous (those who think themselves good enough), but he did come to call sinners.

So both of these ideas are true:

1. We’ll never be good enough to get into heaven.
2. We don’t need to be good to get into heaven.

Because God calls sinner. And thank the God of Heaven for that.

5-1 Application for Jan 10-11, 2015 :: Daniel 2:20-21

===

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
to whom belong wisdom and might.
He changes times and seasons;
he removes kings and sets up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to those who have understanding.

Daniel 2:20-21

===

Here’s a good foundation to start the year – a listing of some of God’s amazing qualities.

He is strong (might belongs to Him)
He is sovereign (He changes times and sets up kings)
He is wise and is generous with his wisdom (he gives wisdom and knowledge)

This is the kind of God we should worship. And yes, this is the kind of God we should want to be blessed.

4-52 Application for Dec 27-28, 2014 :: John 11:25-26

===

“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.

Do you believe this?”

John 11:25-26

===

What an important passage. It’s a pretty good way to end 2014.

The unspoken question is “Do you want to avoid death?” The answer, for most of us, is Yes. And Jesus is the way to do that. Specifically, we need belief in him. Deep, complete, life-changing belief in him.

Because he is the resurrection.

“Do you believe this?” is an important question.

So I hope as we finish up this year, that your answer to Jesus’ question is “Yes, I believe this.” And may it be a saving belief for you and others in your life in 2015.

John11
