Motivating Monday – “When Giants Fall”

Let God – and watch the giantd fall. Praise Him.

The Artistic Christian

Giants

“In God’s Word, He said 365 times, ‘Do Not Fear.’ Once time for each day.”

-Facing the Giants

 

“I’ve resolved to give God everything I’ve got and leave the results up to Him.”

-Facing the Giants

The Christian film, Facing the Giants, explored a concept that is deeply rooted in Scripture.  When we face “giants” in our lives – whether they come in the form of a powerful person, a troubling circumstance, a devastating loss, a difficult temptation, or a nagging doubt or fear, God can conquer these giants for us.  In fact, the Bible makes it clear that God wants to conquer these giants for us! 

Just before the second fall of Jerusalem, the Israelites were surrounded by several great and powerful nations,including Ammon (Ezekiel 25:3), Tyre (Ezekiel 26:2), Egypt (Ezekiel 29:3), and Assyria (Ezekiel 32:22). Each of these nations were mighty and well-known, and would have…

Nuggets – Righteous Judgment to Come

Righteous Judgment to Come
“And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.” (Psalm 9:8)

Judgment is coming for every person, “as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). Many people don’t believe it, and still more don’t seem to care, but judgment is coming! Be certain of this. We must all meet God our Maker someday.

Furthermore, “he shall judge the world in righteousness,” for He is “of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity” (Habakkuk 1:13). “He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth” (Psalm 96:13; also note Psalm 96:10; 98:9).

All is lost if God judges righteously, however, for “there is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10), and “cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them” (Galatians 3:10).

But “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, . . . hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Corinthians 5:19, 21). The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, our Creator/Redeemer, has taken our judgment on Himself, and “there is therefore now no [judgment] to them which are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).

Consequently, “the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22). God can both judge righteously and yet graciously save all who receive Christ by faith: “Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:31). Jesus Christ is not only our Creator and righteous Judge, but also our Redeemer, Mediator, Advocate, and Savior! HMM

Nuggets – God’s Grace

God’s Grace
“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2)

Although Christ has set the believer free from legalistic bondage, he is now under a still higher law—the law of Christ. It is also called “the law of the Spirit of life” that has made us “free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2).

The law of Christ does not consist of many detailed ordinances that we are duty bound to obey. It is a law that we want to obey out of love for Christ. “Therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:10). Paul says that “the end of the commandment is charity [that is, Christian love] out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned” (1 Timothy 1:5). James calls it “the royal law,” defining it simply as “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (James 2:8).

Instead of a law bringing us into bondage, it is “the perfect law of liberty” (James 1:25), setting us free from slavery to sin. It not only gives us the desire to please the Lord but also the will and the ability to do so.

It is not as though we are now without law and thereby free to indulge our carnal appetites. Paul explains his own new nature thus: “For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more . . . (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ)” (1 Corinthians 9:19, 21).

In Christ, “the righteousness of God without the law is manifested,” and He is “the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Romans 3:21; 10:4). But though we “have been called unto liberty,” Paul commands us to “use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another” (Galatians 5:13). Thus, to believe in Christ is also to obey Him. HMM

Maranatha – Rethinking Outreach

Francis Chan speaks about the need to rethink outreach. Are we abiding in Christ? Are we united as the body of Christ so others see the love of God and our loving one another? What part is Holy Communion in outreach?

Let the Lord speak to us in these last days – time is short.
