January 7 – Daily Reading – Genesis 15 – 17 / Matthew 6:1-15
January 8 – NO READING
Genesis 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
How does a person get saved from sin? How did a person in the Old Testament get saved when Jesus was not even born yet? How will people in the tribulation be saved when the Holy Spirit is not continually present, convicting the hearts or man? The answer has always been and will always be the same. Our salvation from the curse of sin is our FAITH in God and His Word
Abram, soon to be renamed to Abraham which means “father of many nations”, simply took God at His Word. He put all his faith into God’s promises. This is amazing, since he and his wife were very old, but he took God at His Word that from him God would make a nation so large that they could not be counted. In Romans 4 it talks about Abraham’s faith in God’s promise. Romans 4:20-22 “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.” Our Salvation from sin today is also by faith in God’s Word. God said in John 20:31 “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Our Salvation from the curse of sin has always been through Christ and will always be Our Faith in God and His Word.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
Abraham looked forward in faith. We must look upward in Faith. One day in glory, we will look back to today, and rejoice in our faith.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “faith is the substance of things hoped for…”the question is, in whom do you place your FAITH?
THE WEEK IN REVIEW:
We’ve seen over the past week, God’s creation of all things and He said it was very good. (Gen 1:31) Yet in just 17 Chapters of the first book we have seen;
● He Made You Special
● The Separation Of Sin
● The Saturation Of Sin
● The Selfishness Of Sin
● The Solution For Sin
● Our Salvation From Sin
As I pray you have seen and will continue to see throughout the pages of the Bible, “Sin Is No Match For God.”
Enjoy today with your church and hear what God has prepared in the heart of His man for you this week.
See you tomorrow.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs.
