MORNING

Every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it.

He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in right-eousness.

We glory in tribulations: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. – If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the Father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.

JOHN 15:2. Mal. 3:2,3. Rom. 5:3 5. -Heb. 12:7,8,11,12.

EVENING

Now we call the proud happy.

Thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. – Blessed are the poor in spirit for their’s is the kingdom of heaven.

These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: a proud look, … . – Every one that is proud of heart is an abomination to the LORD.

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. – Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

MAL. 3:15. Isa. 57:15. Prov. 16:19. Matt. 5:3. Prov. 6:16,17. Prov. 16:5. Psa. 139:23,24. Phi. 1:2,3. Matt. 5:5.


You Don’t Need a Degree to Read (and Understand) the Bible – Your Daily Bible Verse – January 21

You Don’t Need a Degree to Read (and Understand) the Bible
By Matthew S. Harmon

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”  – 2 Tim. 3:16-17

Anyone Can Study the Bible

Sometimes I think we make studying the Bible more complicated than it has to be.

There’s a place for in-depth study and using all these remarkable resources that are available to us. But, at the end of the day, the goal is to encounter the living God.

And so as we learn to ask some basic questions of any passage, you don’t need to be a biblical scholar, you don’t need to have had advanced coursework, you don’t even need to have been a Christian for very long. All you need is to be able to ask questions: What do we learn about God? What do we learn about people? How should I relate to God? How should I relate to others?

As we ask some of those very basic, simple questions, I believe the text starts to open up. Sometimes it actually raises even more questions. But oftentimes it quickly reveals things about God and about ourselves.

We realize that we can really benefit from reading, and it doesn’t take complicated methods or techniques. It simply requires asking the right kinds of questions to point us in the right direction to relate to God and to be transformed by who God is and what he’s doing in the pages of Scripture—realizing that he wants to do similar, transformative things in our own lives.

After Death – Abiding Above – January 21

After Death

January 21

Have you ever asked yourself, “What happens after a person dies?” Well the Bible teaches that every person will live forever in one of two places: Heaven or hell. Where a person spends eternity depends on his relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Bible says in John 3:36 – “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

My friend, God’s Word teaches that unbelievers will exist forever in a condition of ruin and separation from God. This is what the Bible calls hell. Hell was not created for people, but for Satan and his fallen angels. However, those who reject Jesus Christ and follow Satan will have to go to be forever with him some day. There is no love in hell, no peace, no light, no friendship, no forgiveness, no Savior, and no hope. It is a place of “wailing and gnashing of teeth” according to Matthew 13:42.

The Bible tells us that God is love and that He gave His Son to die for our sins. When a Christian dies, the body is laid in the grave, but the person – soul and spirit – goes immediately to be with the Lord. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:8 – “to be absent from the body” is to be “present with the Lord.”

For a believer, death is simply the door into the next world. And that world is filled up with a person: the Lord Jesus Christ. When we die, we do not go into a region of darkness at all. We go into a place called heaven where Jesus Christ is supreme. He is Lord of all!

My friend, will you put your trust today where God has put your sin, on Jesus, and ask Him to come into your heart and give you a home in heaven?
