Romands 10:13

Daily Promises
Blue Letter Bible
September 17, 2015

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
How bountiful the mercy of our Lord that He should not only allow salvation, but promise it to those who seek Him. Praise God for your everlasting life! Praise the Lord that He drew you to seek Him!

God is a shield unto them that pur their trust in Him.

Proverbs 30: 5 Every word of God is pure; he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Ps.12:6, Ps.18:30; Ps.84:11)

NIV       “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him (trusts him) And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furance of clay, prified seven times. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless; He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withholds from those whose walk is blameless.

verse 12 O LORD Almighty,

blessed is the man who trusts in you.

  1 Corinthians 5:1-2

(1) It is actually reported that there is
sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among
pagans: A man has his father’s wife. (2) And you are proud! Shouldn’t you
rather have been filled with grief and have put out of your fellowship
the man who did this?

  1 Corinthians 5:6

(6) Your boasting is not good. Don’t you
know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough?

sinDid the fornicator think that his singular actions were affecting the
whole congregation? Not only did he not think so, but neither did the
whole congregation! None of them, it seems, understood how his
was having a damaging effect upon them!

We, however, must begin to think in this way. We are one body,
and what each part does and how he does it affects the efficiency,
effectiveness, and purity of the whole. In Corinth it played a major role
in puffing up, confusing, and dividing the congregation—jeopardizing the
spiritual health of all!

Exodus 20:5). God warns that evil will reach out, spread and
afflict unborn generations. The effects of drugs, smoking, alcohol,
medicines, x-rays, and poor diets upon the unborn are well known.
However, we often fail to think of the effect of example. Do we care what
we pass on to our children? Remember, it will very likely increase.
This is so important that
includes it in the ! “You shall not bow down to [idols] nor serve them.
For I, the L
you God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the
children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me” (

mercyloveBut notice the other side of this principle as revealed in the same
commandment: “. . . but showing
to thousands [of generations], to those who
Me and keep My commandments” (verse 6). In His mercy God has
provided that the good we do goes a long, long way—almost immeasurably
farther than our evil deeds. God is sovereign over His creation, actively
participating in stopping evil before it destroys us. At the same time,
He is active in producing good in us toward His Kingdom.

JosiahWhy does God tell us so much about the kings of Israel and Judah? One
reason is that each king reflected the attitudes and conduct of the
entire nation, so He can describe the whole nation in microcosm. An
equally important reason is to show that the nation reflected its
leadership. If the nation was led by a David, Hezekiah, or ,
things went well. If the leadership fell to an Ahab or Manasseh, the
country degenerated quickly.

Proverbs 29:2). Ralph Waldo Emerson writes,
“An institution is the lengthened shadow of one man.” Parents
need to take note of this. What kind of ripple effect is influencing your
God is showing that there is a ripple effect within the nation; the
moral and spiritual quality of its leadership radiates out toward the
people (

Freedom in Christ

The liberty
wherewith Christ hath made us free.

—Galatians 5:1

“liberty” makes us free to heaven’s charter-the Bible. Here is
a choice passage, believer, “When thou passest through the rivers, I will
be with thee.” You are free to that. Here is another: “The mountains
shall depart, and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from
thee”; you are free to that. You are a welcome guest at the table of the
promises. Scripture is a never-failing treasury filled with boundless stores of
grace. It is the bank of heaven; you may draw from it as much as you please,
without let or hindrance. Come in faith and you are welcome to all covenant
There is not a promise in the Word which shall be withheld. In
the depths of tribulations let this freedom comfort you; amidst waves of
distress let it cheer you; when sorrows surround thee let it be thy solace.
This is thy Father’s love-token; thou art free to it at all times. Thou art
also free to the throne of grace. It is the believer’s privilege to have
access at all times to His heavenly Father. Whatever our desires, our
difficulties, our wants, we are at liberty to spread all before Him. It matters
not how much we may have sinned, we may ask and expect pardon. It signifies
nothing how poor we are, we may plead His promise that He will provide all
things needful. We have permission to approach His throne at all times-in
midnight’s darkest hour, or in noontide’s most burning heat. Exercise thy
right, O believer, and live up to thy privilege. Thou art free to all that is
treasured up in Christ-wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and
redemption. It matters not what thy need is, for there is fulness of supply in
Christ, and it is there for thee. O what a “freedom” is thine!
freedom from condemnation, freedom to the promises, freedom to the throne of
grace, and at last freedom to enter heaven!


Living in the Spirit

Morning Reading

If we live in
the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

—Galatians 5:25

The two most
important things in our holy religion are the life of faith and the walk
of faith.
He who shall rightly understand these is not far from being a
master in experimental theology, for they are vital points to a Christian. You
will never find true faith unattended by true godliness; on the other hand, you
will never discover a truly holy life which has not for its root a living faith
upon the righteousness of Christ. Woe unto those who seek after the one without
the other! There are some who cultivate faith and forget holiness; these may be
very high in orthodoxy, but they shall be very deep in condemnation, for they
hold the truth in unrighteousness; and there are others who have strained after
holiness of life, but have denied the faith, like the Pharisees of old, of whom
the Master said, they were “whitewashed sepulchres.” We must have faith,
for this is the foundation; we must have holiness of life, for this is the
superstructure. Of what service is the mere foundation of a building to a man
in the day of tempest? Can he hide himself therein? He wants a house to cover
him, as well as a foundation for that house. Even so we need the superstructure
of spiritual life if we would have comfort in the day of doubt. But seek not a
holy life without faith, for that would be to erect a house which can afford no
permanent shelter, because it has no foundation on a rock. Let faith and life
be put together, and, like the two abutments of an arch, they will make our
piety enduring. Like light and heat streaming from the same sun, they are alike
full of blessing. Like the two pillars of the temple, they are for glory and
for beauty. They are two streams from the fountain of grace; two lamps lit with
holy fire; two olive trees watered by heavenly care. O Lord, give us this day
life within, and it will reveal itself without to Thy glory.
