DECEMBER 31, 2020 – Good Bye, Hello

2021-keywords-modified-header-cropped

GOOD BYE, HELLO

DECEMBER 31, 2020

Goodbye Bye 2020 Welcome 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV)  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. .

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Forgetting our past, let’s enjoy our present. Let’s welcome the New Year 2021. We have undergone much in this past year that we would count as dismal at best. Yet we all must say that through it all, God has been faithful.  The Word of God is still available today, and in some ways like never before. The truths contained in the pages of our Bible are still as true today as they were a year, ten years, a thousand years ago. In fact, they predicted we would have times of trials and tribulations.

John 16:33 (KJV) These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

    If you are a Christian and reading this, it is apparent that Christ has not returned for His church. Therefore if He tarries through this day we will welcome the New Year 2021. I truly believe that in Christ, no matter what comes we can make this next year of our life fantastic and enjoyable.

    Plan in 2021 to do something for the future and future generation so that the future generation can have something and someone to look forward to. Let us just say, ”Goodbye Bye 2020 Welcome 2021.” As we plan to share Christ in some way with someone. He is our only future, real future for any and all who will believe in Him. Learn how to personally share your faith. Find a good Bible Tract and begin to hand them out. Begin now inviting people to your church services, whether they are virtual or in person. Then call them up or meet with them following to see how they liked it. God can use you in 2021 to make this the absolute best year to come.  

   CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

       We can not change what is past. However we can have a brighter view on tomorrow. Just before the book of the Revelation of John, the book of Jude has a great reminder for those looking for, and waiting on Jesus to return. It says…

Jude 1:20-25 (KJV)
20  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22  And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

December 30, 2020 – READING FOR REWARD

READING FOR REWARD

December 30, 2020

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

BIBLE READING LAYOUT FOR 2021:

     Each daily Devotion will begin with Title, and a date. Followed by a “KEY FROM GOD’S WORD,” which is a Key Scripture verse for that day, normally taken from that days ACCELERATED READING SCHEDULE at the bottom of the page. This will then be followed by something we like to call a, “THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD.” This is a short commentary by Dr. Senters of his thoughts about the Key Scripture for the day. 

   The final section is called; “CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY.” This section is a short thought reflecting on that day’s topic which you can carry in your heart throughout the day. It is often hard to remember all we read. Yet, a simple overview, or thought can often be remembered, that we might meditate on during the day. As mentioned above in today’s verse, in the book of Joshua, we are told:

Joshua 1:8
 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 

    While the words written by the author are not the inspired words of God, the desire is that the thoughts he shares may help you remember what God has said in that days passage.

FINAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

     We hope you enjoy this Living In His Word Devotional, “Keywords In God’s Word” over the next year . May God richly bless you day by day as you allow Him to speak into your hearts.

     Our desire, and Ministry motto stated above in our banner has always been to,
                                     “Get People into the Word Of God…
                                                  …And The Word Of God Into People.”

December 29, 2020 – We Begin In Just A Few Days

WE BEGIN IN JUST A FEW DAYS

December 29, 2020

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Acts 17:10-11 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

BIBLE READING LAYOUT FOR 2021:

“Keywords In God’s Word” will provide a Devotion online and in many e-mail boxes Monday thru Saturday each week throughout 2021. Every week with the exception of the first week of the year we have created devotions to begin on Monday and conclude on Sunday. We have dated every devotion so you can simply find today’s date and begin there.

    At the bottom of each Daily Devotion you will find two reading outlines. The first one is called “THROUGH THE BIBLE ACCELERATED READING.”  By following this daily Suggested Reading Schedule you will have read through the Old Testament Once, The New Testament and Psalms twice, and the book of Proverbs twelve times in a year.

     For many of you that is more than you will find time to read. Therefore we have also included our, “THROUGH THE BIBLE OLD & NEW TESTAMENT DAILY.” This is a daily reading Monday through Saturday, leaving Sunday open. There is a simple reason for this. We want you to read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart for that week. Whatever his text is for the morning and evening service was given to him by God for your specific needs. The principal for this is found in Act 17:10 & 11.

Acts 17:10-11 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    Those who were from Berea had a good practice that we might do well to follow. The Bible even says they were more noble for doing so. The practice we encourage is to listen intently to the preaching of God’s Word, then let it soak in even more by re-reading the text, and examining what God was saying there. Reading a chapter before and after the text will help. However you decide to do this, we hope you might let this become a habit in your life, examining what God wants to share with your life week by week.

FINAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

AS we promised yesterday At the bottom of this page is a link where you can download a PDF of the entire year in advance if you so desire.

Tomorrow we will outline the daily reading process, getting you ready for an exciting year of finding lifelong meaning through “Keywords In God’s Word”

INTRO INTO 2021

DECEMBER 28, 2020

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    First of all, let me say, “THANK YOU,” for joining us this year, or for some of you long time subscribers, for remaining with us for this year for “Keywords In God’s Word” Devotional Blog. We pray that these daily devotions will help you in your walk with the Lord.

    This Blog contains Devotions from key verses taken from daily bible reading throughout the Bible. You will soon find all the scriptures used in the blog are from the King James Version of the Bible. The author, Dr. Franklin J. Senters, has read and studied this version of scripture for many years and is completely comfortable in his belief that the KJV is the most accurate English translation of God’s Word. While some of the words used may seem archaic in nature, if studied and read in context they portray the clearest English interpretation of the original manuscripts. In “Keywords In God’s Word” Devotions we will do our best to help you understand the principles and application of these verses.

   Proverbs 30:5
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

  “Every word of God is pure,” That means they are all correct, the truth, and important. When I was a young boy my mother told me, “Read all the words of the Bible when you read it. All the thee’s, thou’s, and every word in between are written to help you.” I have never forgotten those wise words. While we could never cover all the concepts of God’s Word in one year, we have selected many Key verses to help guide us through life. 

     If you would please allow me to take a couple of days to introduce to you the thought behind the design of “Keywords In God’s Word”. The actual devotions will begin Friday January 1st.


CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

Tomorrow we will cover how this blog is designed for your daily reading,
and also where you can find a
Free Downloadable PDF of our
One Year Daily Bible Reading Schedule.
