4-18 Application for May 12, 2019 :: Psalm 139:1-3

==

O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.

Psalm 139:1-3

===

We have a God who understands each of us and isn’t surprised by anything that happens to us.
He knows what we are thinking and where we are going.

This could be a frightening thought, if he weren’t a loving God, but we’ll need to wait just a few verses to learn about that.

In the meantime, know this: You are known by God.

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

Romans 5:9-10

===

At the point that we were enemies – then we were reconciled – justified
By the death of Jesus his son.
By his blood
Now we are reconciled – we will be saved
By the life of Jesus his son.
From the wrath of God

4-16 Application for April 28, 2019 :: Romans 5:8

==

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

===

We were not good people when Christ reached down to save us. We were not decent. We were not holy or righteous or perfect or blameless.

We were sinners.

But Christ still died for us.

That’s one way we know that God loves us. Feel his love throught that act.

By Daniel Souza

Romans 5:8

==

-and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:6-7

===

Do you want to be seated with God in the coming ages?
Do you want to be part of the proof that God’s grace and kindness is immeasurably rich?
Do you want to raised up with Jesus?

You can have this. Choose Christ.

4-13 Application for April 7, 2019 :: Ephesians 2:4-5

==

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-by grace you have been saved

Ephesians 2:4-5

===

Here is really good news.

And it’s another reminder of a part in the Gospel.

It was God
(and his Son)
who’s love and mercy and grace
(while we were dead)
Made us alive and saved us

We should remember how little we did to make ourselves right with this loving God.

4-12 Application for Mar 31, 2019 :: Ephesians 2:1-3

==

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience- among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

Ephesians 2:1-3

===

This is a dark verse

Dead
Tresspasses and sins
Following the wrong prince
Passions of our flesh
Children of Wrath

So why is it a happy verse for Christians?

Because of one word: “were”

None of these things are true any more.

We are following God.
We are alive.
We are sons of obedience
We are children of God.

Thank God for this.

==

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

===

Why should we thank and praise God?

His love is steadfast and lasts forever
His faithfulness to all generations lasts forever.

4-10 Application for Mar 10, 2019 :: Psalm 100:1-3

==

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Psalm 100:1-3

===

We, as Christians, often don’t like noise. But what we have hear is joyful noise. Singing praise.

And why?
Because we can be in his presence.
Because He is God.
Because he made us – we are his, we are his people.

And we will enjoy his pasture forever.

Sing praise to him.

4-9 Application for Mar 10, 2019 :: Acts 5:29

==

“We must obey God rather than men.”

Acts 5:29

===

There is quite a lot in the Word of God about how we should respect and obey human authorities (Parents, Elders, Bosses, Kings) that God has put in our lives. But here is at least one exception – if obeying these human agents would go against obeying God, then we must not do it.

Happily, this is fairly rare.

But our obedience to God is paramount.

4-8 Application for Mar 3, 2019 :: John 10:27-30

==

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

John 10:27-30

===

This is what Jesus said – Jesus, the Son of God: No one can take you out of my hand.

If you are in Jesus, you are with Him forever. Isn’t that comforting?
The one who is one with the Father will protect you always.

Listen to His voice. Follow Him.
