A Daily Word – November 4

November 4

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27

The world’s peace is negative, dependent on the absence of conflict. Jesus’ peace is positive. He told His followers He hadn’t come to bring peace, but a “sword” (Matthew 10:34). His very presence excited opposition and persecution. Yet in the midst of the strife, Jesus’ disciples would have His peace. So Stephen dies under the stones of an angry mob, glorifying Jesus as he perishes. 86-year old Polycarp, faithful follower, refuses to deny Jesus, and burns at the stake, declaring his friendship with the Lord. And so it has gone for centuries—people experiencing Christ’s peace in the midst of their blood, sweat and tears.

What Are You Worth to Jesus? – Love Worth Finding – November 4

What are you worth to Jesus? 

NOVEMBER 4

BIBLE MEDITATION

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:20

It is the evening of the Last Supper. Jesus is with His disciples for the final time before His crucifixion. He raises the cup and says, “For this is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28). The word “testament” comes from the Greek word diatheke, which means “covenant.” Our Lord purchased us, but not with silver or gold as a bridegroom would have in that day long ago. He purchased us with the silver of His tears and the gold of His blood. Through His blood we have entered into a covenant with Him. The church is the bride; He is the bridegroom. We are betrothed to Him in a covenant bought with His blood. 

Listen to these powerful words from “The Church’s One Foundation,” a great hymn we sing: 

“The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord. She is His new creation by Spirit and the Word. From Heaven He came and sought her to be His holy bride. With His own blood He bought her, and for her life He died.”

Let this powerful truth sink deep into your heart today. Meditate on what it means that Jesus came and sought you, then bought you with His blood.

How Your Kindness Can Change Everything – Powerpoint – November 4

How Your Kindness Can Change Everything

November 4

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32

Several years ago, I was preaching one morning on today’s Scripture, and we had a big hiccup in our sound system. The microphone was popping, squealing, and screeching. Needless to say, I was very frustrated with the whole situation.

I stepped off the stage after the sermon intending to go share my frustration with the people in the sound room. But just as I was about to open the door, I remembered the verse I preached that morning. I probably would’ve handled it okay regardless, but I do know I had an extra measure of grace in light of the verse that was fresh in my mind.

Walking away from that day, I really spent some time thinking about what our lives would look like if before every decision we made, we remembered what God’s Word said first. And I believe one of the biggest areas of our lives that would change is how we treat others.

It’s my prayer that the people of God would love one another so well that the world would see us and say, “Something is different about them.” Love one another with kindness and compassion. Not only will you be obedient to God, but you’ll also give the world a glimpse of the hope that’s in you.

BE KIND AND FORGIVING, AND LET YOUR LOVE FOR OTHERS BE A BEACON TO A LOST WORLD.
