1-38 Application for Sept 26, 2021 :: 2 Cor 12:9


“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9

Sufficient is an important word. Everything we need. God’s grace is everything we need.

Weakness is an important concept. Do you feel weak? You should. As you think about God’s power and glory, you should be aware of your flaws and lack of strength. They are your reality.

But the good news is God can use you. In fact, it’s how His power is shown perfectly.

And then you can boast in that.

1-37 Application for Sept 19, 2021 :: 2 Cor 9:8


And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8


This verse has a lot of completeness.
All grace.
All sufficiency in all things at all times.
Every good work.

It also has the word “Abound”.

“Abound” is a good word. Here’s the definition: to be rich or well supplied.

That is what we want. We want to be well supplied.

Your God, the One who created the universe, wants you to abound.

This is what you were made for.

1-36 Application for Sept 12, 2021 :: 2 Cor 9:6-7


Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7


Once more, God gives us a reason to obey him: That we might reap bountifully

He also tells us a bad way to obey: reluctantly or under compulsion.

And he tells us who he loves: a cheerful giver.

Decide in your heart — Be a cheerful giver.

1-35 Application for Sept 5, 2021 :: James 1:12


Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12

A promise: A crown of life from the creator of the universe.
To whom: The man or woman who remains steadfast under trial and who stands the test.

Are you under trial right now? Do you know what God wants you to do? Or do you know what God wants you to refuse to do?

Ask God to help you stand the test – receive the crown of life.

Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

Psalm 20:6-7

Who is the LORD’s anointed: His son Jesus – and through Jesus, Us.
What is done for the LORD’s anointed: He saves, with the saving might of his right hand.
What we can do because of this: Trust in his name and not finite and fallable creatures.

We trust in the name of the LORD our God!

1-33 Application for Aug 21, 2021 :: Matthew 11:28-30


Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30

Those Jesus Calls: Those who labor and are heavy laden
What they should do: Take Jesus’ yoke and learn from him
What He will do: Give them rest for their souls
What they don’t have to do: Take all of the work of gaining salvation on themselves

Choose Jesus. His yoke is easy and His burden is light.

1-32 Application for Aug 14, 2021 :: Romans 1:16


For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Romans 1:16

I tell my kids – there are two things you should be ashamed of – having done something sinful, or having done something foolish.

Paul makes it clear – choosing to live in accordance with the Gospel is neither of these.

And why should we have no shame regarding this? Because the Gospel shows us what God has done for us.

For salvation.
To everyone who believes.

Believe and be saved.

1-31 Application for Aug 6-7, 2016 :: Matthew 10:28


And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Matthew 10:28

A very good question to ask is – what should I fear? Of whom should I be afraid?

A reasonable initial response is – the person or thing that could harm me physically or kill me.

But this is not eternal thinking. From the perspective of 100 years from now, this is not the right answer.

The right answer is – the person who controls what happens to my immortal soul.

In other words – God. Fear God. Fear him so much that you follow him and obey him.

And when he offers salvation, take it.

1-30 Application for July 31, 2021 :: Philippians 1:6


And I am sure of this that, he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:6

What is the Apostle Paul sure of? You are not done. You are not yet as good as your going to get. If you’re a child of God, you’re going to be perfect.

You will be complete.

Take comfort in that.

If you are thinking, “I’ll never be good enough,” take comfort in that.


Written and Sung by Jeff Warren

Phil 1 6


In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Ephesians 6:16-17

Three more parts of the Armor of God:
Shield — Faith
Helmet — Salvation
Sword (of the Spirit) — The Word of God

And how do these gifts relate to armor?
Faith — we can use it to shield us from, and extinguish Satan’s arrows, like temptation and doubts
Salvation — a helmet that can protect us
The Word of God — Our sword – it is for us a weapon that we can use to attack the works of Satan, to take away the hold he has on so many souls, and any that he has on ours.

Again, these are the tools and the gifts you receive as a child of God. Use them!
