January 11 BIBLE LIFE – CHILDREN OF GOD MUST DESIST FROM SIN – SAMPLE TEXTS

Daily Bible Life

Children of God must make dedicated efforts to abstain from sexual sin, since the practice irritates God. The scripture warned believers to consider it as a serious offense to engage in sexual sin. It is written, “I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people …But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person” (1 Corinthians. 5:9-11).

 

Lesson:

It is prestigious for a Christian to stand uprightly with God in holiness; it is also shameful for any Christian to engage in sexual sin. God hates sexual immorality, and he does not want his children to engage in it. He will withhold his benefits from people who persist in the sin. However, anyone who genuinely repents from a sexual sin and turn a new leaf will receive God’s blessing. Therefore, everyone should examine his or her way; make necessary amendment, and walk uprightly with God in holiness.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please save me from sexual sins. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me! I am sorry for all my past sins. I am sorry for every sexual sin that I have committed. Please help me to have a fresh start with you. Let me serve you with the beauty of your holiness, and let me walk uprightly with you at all time. Let your Holy Spirit keep me fit for your second coming. Please write my name in the book of life, and let me qualify to partake in your heavenly banquette. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Daily Bible Life

Believers must praise God at all times. We must praise God with the use of our musical instrument, and we must do it to his satisfaction. One psalmist in the Bible challenged people to explore praising God with their creative works of art. He said, “Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 150:1-6).

 

Lesson:

God loves to receive praises of his people! He does not eat any physical food, neither does he personally use any material that we present to him. *Jehovah only eats praises!* He takes pleasure in any worship that his children present to him. Meanwhile, God does not just take pleasure in any worship, he only takes pleasure in quality worships! That is, the Creator will only appreciate any worship (and praise) that is presented to him from a pure heart. Any worship that a Christian presents to God must be thoughtful, and it must come from a genuine heart. While believers must make the attitude of praising God our routine habit, we must ensure that each of the praises must be genuine. Jehovah will reciprocate our efforts to bring him sincere praises. He will bless us beyond measure as we make him proud with our heartfelt praises and worships.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me ability to bring sincere worships to you at all times. Indeed, you have given me every reason to praise you! You have brought me from miry clay and set my feet upon the rock. You have given me new songs, and you have decorated my life with multiple blessings. Why should I not praise you? I will praise you in the morning, praise you in the evening, and praise you at night. I will praise you at all times. I will also testify to your goodness so that all people can know how great you are! Please give me your grace and strength to remain grateful to you everyday of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make  my requests. Amen.

God’s servants are sometimes mistreated. They are misunderstood, abused, and judged for irrelevant reasons. However, God will reward his servants that refuse to give in for any pressure of the enemies. He will honor whoever remains faithful unto the end. Paul, a servant of God, shared his experience of worldly abuse and his loyalty to God. Paul stated, “For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men. We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored! To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless. And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure; being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now” (1 Cor. 4:9-13).

 

Lesson:

God’s servants often face criticisms of others; they are persecuted and abused for the sake of their faith in Christ. However, Jehovah will reward the efforts of his servants in due time. He will assist them on earth and also bless them in heaven. Therefore, everyone who serves God in any capacity must understand that his/her effort is not in vain. People who suffer persecution and remain committed to God will enjoy his benefits! The Creator will glorify his name in their lives so that all people (including unbelievers) might witness it and believe him.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I ask you to please make me a faithful servant who will be loyal to you always. I also pray for all your servants throughout the world that you will give us courage to faithfully serve you. Empower us to bear fruits that will lead to the salvation of souls for the prosperity of your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

God, the greatest of the universe, has done many unimaginable things for humanity to witness. The depth of his knowledge is rare and unsearchable. A psalmist tried his best to recount God’s goodness and said, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by his name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite” (Psalm 147:3-5).

 

Lesson:

God is the greatest and highest being in existence. He has an autonomous power to do whatever he likes, and no one dares to question him. His path is right and he is ever faithful. God does goodness and he detests evil. He demonstrates goodness in many ways. He favors, promotes, and blesses people that trust him. The Creator deserves human praises; everyone should praise him. We must praise him for his deep and genuine love towards us. Every living soul should sing and shout hallelujah to a wonderful God who does wonderful things at all times. Let someone who believe in the power of God shout hallelujah to the praise of his name!

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I love you God for all the signs and wonders that you have performed for humanity. I specially thank you for all your goodness in my life! Thank you for everyday beauty that I witness. Thank you for the sun, the moon, the sky, and the stars. Thank you for the fresh air, and thank you for other wonderful things that you have created. Thank you God for yesterday, today, and thank you for tomorrow! Thank you God for all your benefits in my life! I will praise you with everything I have, and I will continue to praise you as long as I live. The praises of your goodness will never elude my mouth – Since I believe that I will still witness more of your goodness in my life. Thank your Son Jesus Christ for being the Savior of my life. For in his name, Christ Jesus I have brought you my praise! Amen.

January 7 BIBLE LIFE

Daily Bible Life

One Grecian woman, in the Bible, seized an opportunity to receive an unqualified miracle of Jesus Christ. Of course, Jesus was nice to everyone, but he was on a different mission when the Grecian woman intercepted him and demanded for her miracle. Despite Jesus’ objection to the demand, the woman insisted that Jesus must help her. The Messiah positively responded and credited the woman for her great faith. The Bible reported, “From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden. For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed. (Mark 7:24-30).

 

Lesson:

Anyone who expects to receive the miracle of God must operate in faith. Indeed, God has unrestricted power to do whatever he likes; however, God maintains a principle to only honor people who operate in faith. That is, the Creator will help someone who cast an absolute trust him. (God will help a *person of faith* no matter how heavy or light the weight of his or her problem may be). Meanwhile, not just any claim of faith works with God; someone must have had an actionable faith to have his or her expectations met. That is, a person who claims to have faith in God must also demonstrate courage by taking every necessary step that will help his or her aspiration.

 

Prayer:

Dear God I believe that you have power to do all things. There is no limit to what you can do for people who trust in you. I also understand that you require your children to be proactive in their works as they take the steps of faith. Therefore, I pray that you help me to put my faith to practice by taking proactive steps that will lead to my breakthrough. I believe in the scripture that states, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me!” I believe there is no limit to the amount of miracles that I can receive through faith in Jesus Christ! Please give me the strength to put my faith to practice so that I can prosper in the land of the living. Let my testimony abide to the glorification of your name! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

A woman received Jesus’ special attention for pouring an expensive oil on him. Everyone around grumbled that the woman should have sold the oil and donate its money to charity; however, Jesus corrected the critics and stated the woman was performing an action that was symbolic for his crucifixion. The scripture reported; “And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table. But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor.” But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me. For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always. For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial. Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her” (Matthew 26:6-13).

 

Lesson:

Children of God must serve him with their tangible offerings. We ought to make it a practice to present God any offering that will mean something to him. God is not a beggar; he does not depend on us to run his businesses. Christians must not behave like unbelievers that hoard their resources and refuse to serve God. An unbeliever will prefer to seek for gains; count his money, and pocket it – Without presenting a gift to God that blessed him! Christians are children of God, and we should know better! We must understand that the Creator will reciprocate any gift that we present to him with multiple blessings. The more gifts will present to God, the more blessings we will receive from him.

 

However, Christians must understand that any offering that we offer to God must have pure motive and come from a pure heart. Our gifts presented to God must be void of any selfish or bias mind. We cannot deceive God with our gifts and services. He knows the secret of our hearts; he can determine whether our gifts and services presented to him are pure or not. God will reward every honest service that we present to him. He will bless us in this life, and in heaven also.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me ability to serve you with a pure heart. Help me to bring tangible offerings to you, and let the offerings be pure to incur you blessings. Please let my services bring glory and honor to your name always. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Bible is a God-approved guidebook that all Christians must study and follow. Anyone who desires to faithfully serve God and comply with his standard must daily study his or her Bible, which is the word of God. Timothy as well as other Christians are charged, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness” (2 Timothy 2:15-16).

 

Lesson:

Christianity is a disciplined religion that requires people who practice it to do so with seriousness. Anyone who claims to be a Christian must constantly read his or her Bible to be reminded of the commandments of God. Bible also inspires its readers to have a good understanding of God. Believers can clearly understand God and serve him properly. Children of God must be devoted to their Bible study and apply the godly lesson learned to their daily lives.

 

In addition, Christians must understand that Bible requires us to be moral and be people of integrity in speech and deed. For examples, a Christian must not engage in cheap talks. He or she must not engage in an ungodly conversation. Any word that proceeds from a Christian must be seasoned with grace and glorify God. More importantly, a good Christian must evangelized the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people!

 

People who study their Bible and practice the lessons learned will receive God’s benefits on earth and in heaven.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me the enabling grace to daily study my bible and apply its lessons to my life. Help me to be committed into faithfully studying your words; let your words inspire my heart unto godliness. Please empower me by the Holy Spirit to put your word to practice so that I can prosper! Give me the enabling grace to faithfully serve you unto the end so that I can inherit your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Daily Bible Life

The word love carries an important meaning in the Bible. God centralized his laws on love. Even besides that, God performs all his activities with love. He created Adam (and Eve) based on love. God also sent his only Son Jesus Christ to come and save the world. Jesus, upon arriving the earth, established Christian religion on the principle of love. The scripture explained love as the essential credential for all Christians as stated, “Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk” (1 Timothy 1:5-6). Bible also states, “Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness” (1 John 2:9 NIV).

 

Lesson:

Love is an essential factor that makes Christianity relevant on earth. God outsourced love and demonstrated it for humans to emulate. The Creator allowed his Son Jesus Christ to die for the world for the sake of love. The Bible clearly states, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus Christ the Son of God came to earth and operated on the principle of God’s love. He centralized his sermon on love. Christ was persecuted for love. He lived and die for love!

 

Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, championed true love for people in the world to benefit. Christians also have the same obligation to demonstrate the true love God. In other words, anyone who claims to be a Christian must understand the meaning of true love and demonstrate it.

 

However, the word love is a universal term, and some people have misused it. Christians must clearly understand what love mean. Love is not the same as sensuality. That is, love is not erratic, neither is it erotic. In short, love must not be regarded as a means of gratifying the lust of the flesh. True love glorifies God; it does not have an evil connotation.

 

Sin is not part of true love. Love is not partial. Love is not selfish. Love is not biased. Anyone who desires to go to heaven must exercise true love – since it glorifies God! A true Christian must love his or her neighbors with a godly mindset. A child of God who desires to satisfy God must not mistreat others. He or she must only demonstrate God’s approved agape love.

 

It is important that anyone who intends to make heaven on the last day demonstrates God’s unconditional love of God.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please help me to demonstrate a genuine love that glorifies your name. I understand that no one will be able to go to heaven without demonstrating true love. Please give me the strength needed to truly love other people. Help me to genuinely love you and love other people with a pure heart. Please keep my heart pure with true love so that I can qualify for your eternal kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Children of God must consider the practice of idol worship as an abomination. Christians must completely separate themselves from the practice since it is irritant to God. No child of God is allowed to carve an image to represent God. Also, no child of God must worship a carved image or any other material. In other words, no medium must be adopted to represent God in any form or fashion! The scripture emphasized, “Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man (Jesus Christ) whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead” (Acts 17:29-31).

 

Lesson:

Everyone on earth is required to serve God and relate with him in faith. People must relate with God in faith without trying to represent him with any object or material. Believers must understand that we are not allowed to use any carved image to represent God. We must pray to God directly and worship him in the spirit – with full exercise of faith! (Whoever prays to God must mention the name of Jesus Christ in his or her prayers according to *Philippians 2:9-11*.

 

Sensible people do not serve idol! Why would anyone consider an idol as a deity to be served? Any craft or artwork made by humans is subjective to human authority, and it cannot be equated with God who is the Almighty Jehovah-The most powerful deity in the entire universe. Indeed, it makes absolutely no sense to bow in honor of an object made by humans!

 

God forbids the practices of image worship. God commanded in the Bible, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” (Exodus 20:4).

 

Humanity ought to serve God; they should not serve idol. A person who desires to serve God should do so appropriately for his or her service to be acceptable to God. Meanwhile, an acceptable worship to God can only be offered by the help of the Holy Spirit.

 

True worship to God must be inspired by the Holy Spirit. It must come from a pure heart to be recognized by God. The Bible declares, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24).

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I know that you are the living God that all people ought to serve. You ask everyone to desist from idol worship and faithfully serve you. You promised to positively reward your faithful worshippers, and you will punish the idol worshippers. Therefore, I am determined to serve you with a devoted mind! I won’t represent you with any image; neither will I worship any other deity than you. I am also determined to only worship you in Spirit and in truth! Please let the Holy Spirit empower me to faithfully serve you! Lead me in the path of righteousness, and please qualify me for your eternal kingdom. Also, please bless me on earth as I faithful service you. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Daily Bible Life

Christians are heavenly bound people; we run a spiritual race that must lead us to God’s kingdom. Believers must keep focus and not allow the worldly activities to distract us. Earthly activities may be simulating, but they only provide temporary satisfactions! God will soon put an end to this earth (and all its activities). Children of God are heavenly bound people. That is, heaven is our permanent home; we must not allow the temporary activities of this world to distract us. Bible warned the Christians, “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:1-3).

 

Lesson:

The present earth has many distracting activities; Christians must be careful not to allow the activities to trap us! Christians must allow the Holy Spirit to guide us into all godliness. Christians must resist temptations of sin; we must take proactive steps towards satisfying God in holiness as the Bible instructs, “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry” (Colossians 3:5).

 

In addition, Bible emphasized that Christians must be moral in our practices. It is written, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.  But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3:12-14).

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I understand that you require your children to set their eyes on things that are heavenly (which are eternal). You ask us to refrain from worldly activities so that we can successfully run our spiritual race. Therefore, I pray that you help me to meet your expectations! Empower me by the Holy Spirit to comply with your standard. Please count me among your children that will rejoice in your presence in heaven on the last day. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

God fulfilled his promise made to Caleb in the wilderness; he granted him an opportunity to own a landed property in Canaan. Indeed, it was a pay-day for Caleb since only him and Joshua brought good reports for Moses in the wilderness! Others compared themselves as grasshoppers against the giants, but Caleb and Joshua confidently declared that God was able to help them possess the Promised Land. The bold declarations of Caleb (and Joshua) made God promise that he would grant them an opportunity to possess the Canaan land. (God disallowed the ten pessimist spies who brought bad reports to Moses and Israelites in the camp – Numbers 14:24).

 

Caleb who demonstrated courage at the border of Canaan Land also demonstrated courage as he was about to witness the fulfillment of God’s promise. Caleb, at a very old age of 85 years, requested that Joshua granted him the portion of the promised land that were occupied by the giants. Caleb told Joshua, “I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart. Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the Lord my God. So Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children’s forever, because you have wholly followed the Lord my God.’ And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said.” And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance. Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the Lord God of Israel. And the name of Hebron formerly was Kirjath Arba (Arba was the greatest man among the Anakim).Then the land had rest from war” (Joshua 14:7-15).

 

Lesson:

Impossibilities will become possibilities for someone who has an absolute trust in God. The person may face some challenges, but the ever-strong God will come to his or her aid. Jehovah will not allow his children who cast their confidence in him be put to shame. It is important that all children of God understand that they have an obligation to trust God in their situations. No restriction applies, Christians must not consider any situation as insignificant to be treated with faith. Faith application can relate to our day-to-day activities. Also, faith application can be relative to situations such as bill payment, healing expectation, job provision, marriage resolution, and children growth. In other words, believers must trust God for all our businesses! As believers trust God for our situations, we will witness the signs and wonders of God. Faith declarations and expectations will make us have significant testimonies!

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me an ability to have resolute faith in you! Help me to demonstrate courage during adversity. Give me ability to apply faith to all my situations so that I can enjoy your unfiltered benefits! Please be my confidence, be my comfort, and be my testimony! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen!

Ruth, in the Bible, lost her husband. She had a chance to remarry in her home country, but she refused. Ruth decided to accompany Naomi back to Israel. (Naomi was Ruth’s mother-in-law. She was an old age Jewish window who had also lost her two children). Naomi persuaded Ruth to stay in her home country and remarry for the possibility of starting a new life. However, Ruth insisted on following Naomi. She said, “Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me” (Ruth 1:14-17).

 

Lesson:

Children of God are expected to have compassion for other people. Believers must demonstrate selfless love to portray that we are the true followers of Jesus Christ. Christians must learn the important lesson of compassion from God who chose to send his only Son Jesus Christ to die for the world. That is, God went out of his ways to sacrifice his only Son Jesus Christ for the purpose of saving humanity from their sins! Meanwhile, not just God alone demonstrated compassion towards other people, some regular human beings (like us) were found in the Bible to be compassionate. For example, Ruth was selfless to prioritize the need to cater for the needs of Naomi who had lost both her husband and her two children. Ruth had an option to ignore Naomi’s situation, but Ruth behaved differently. She allowed the love of God to prevail through her!

 

In addition, Jesus Christ preached the important lesson of compassion throughout his time on earth. He went to different places to cater for the needy. Jesus did not only preach the kingdom of God to his audience, he also gave them food to eat. Jesus Christ washed the feet of his disciples and personally served their food. Also, Jesus was compassionate about the death of Lazarus, and he cried. The Bible reported, “Jesus wept!”

 

Anyone who considers himself or herself a true child of God must have compassion for other people. Believers must allow the light of God to shine through us by providing welfare and moral support for people who are in need. Of course, Christians must also pray for needy people!

 

God will reward his children who truly represent Jesus Christ by caring for the needs of other people. The path of God’s compassionate children shall forever be prosperous!

 

Be a good steward of Jesus Christ by taking care of other people!

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please grant me the enablement to be compassionate for other people! Help me to demonstrate selfless love towards others! I don’t want to be a selfish individual, but I want to be someone who cares for other people. Let the Holy Spirit empower me to be your good steward! Grant me the ability to make positive contributions to other peoples’s lives. Bless my works so that I can have more resources to be your true ambassador on earth. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
