Living by Faith in the unfailing promises!

Scripture reading for April 3rd:  Joshua 18-21, Psalm 15, Luke 18

Key Scriptures:  Luke 18:6-8  “And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says.  And will not God give justice to His elect, who cry to Him day and night?  Will He delay long over them?  I tell you, He will give justice to them speedily.  Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”

Jesus told a parable to His disciples to reinforce His teaching that men ought “always to pray and not faint.”  He told of a widow that came repeatedly to an unjust judge asking for “justice against her adversary.”  She came so often that the judge finally agreed to help her to get her off his case.  Jesus used the reluctant judge to contrast with God’s speedy answers to His own people when they called in faith.  The question is, would Jesus find people asking for justice and honestly seeking God’s help when He returned for them?

Psalm 15:1-2 “O Lord, who shall sojourn in Your tent?  Who shall dwell on Your holy hill?  He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; . . .”

Faith confession and prayer:  Lord Jesus, I desire to dwell with You eternally.  Help me to walk in faith today and obey Your holy Word trusting in all Your good promises.  You, alone, will bring justice to the earth!

Joshua 21:45 “Not one word of all the good promises that the Lord had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.”

Marked by Holy Living

Scripture reading for July 12th:  Psalm 13-15, 1st Corinthians 6

Key Scriptures:  1st Corinthians 6:9-11  “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  And such were some of you.  But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

Paul clearly tells the Corinthian believers that those living in known sin will not have a part in the inheritance of the kingdom.  Practicing sin is not compatible with those who have been washed and sanctified by Jesus Christ.  The Spirit of God leads believers in repentance and a new life.  Practicing sinners will not be given an eternal inheritance in God’s family.

Psalm 15:1-2  “O Lord, who shall sojourn in Your tent?  Who shall dwell on Your holy hill?  He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; . . .”

Prayer:  Lord, I want to dwell with You for eternity.  May my profession of faith be backed up with holy living.  Fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
