A New Name for the Glory of God

Philippians 1:12-16

But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places; And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

Commentary

Paul is writing to the church at Philippi from prison, explaining how his imprisonment has led to the advance of the gospel. Because of the integrity of Paul everyone knows that he’s in chains for Christ. Paul is not ashamed of the gospel, and has embraced the new creation that he is in Christ. Paul was not always for God – so much so that he got a name change. God uses all things for His good. Paul goes to prison, people get saved. What seems like persecution and the enemy winning proves to be God’s plan to extend mercy and salvation toward the unlikely and unworthy.

Reaching for the Arms of Our Father

Acts 17:26-28

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Commentary

Take an extra moment today and let this sink into your heart. Noah was the man that all nations were made from, a man who found favor in the eyes of God. This verse indicates that God has setup history as a divine outworking of a plan filled with mercy, grace, and opportunity for us to seek Him as our loving Father. My heart leaps each time my children reach for me, something I cannot express in words. God set everything up so that we would have every opportunity to reach for him, just like a little child would reach for a parent. Reach and cry out “Abba!” Daddy!

Simple

John 6:29 is really pretty simple. Yet we as created people try our hardest to try to make simple things complicated.

I looked up the definition of simple. First it came up with definition as adjectives :

  1. Easy to understand
  2. Not complicated
  3. Free of deceit, sincere
  4. Humble or lowly
  5. A simple way of thinking

As a noun:

  1. Something simple, uncompounded
  2. Person of humble origins

Then I looked at the synonyms. I really liked the clarity they added to what was already easy to understand.

  1. Clean
  2. Homey
  3. Humble
  4. PURE
  5. Absolute
  6. Not difficult
  7. **childlike and innocent
  • A couple of things I noticed as I chose the words that describe the WORD of GOD that is given to us in the Holy Bible, the scriptures.

Psalm 116:6 (KJV)

The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.

Matthew 18:3 (KJV and NIV)- Jesus is speaking

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

NIV

And he said, Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 8:16

KJV The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.

NIV The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.

A couple of things I take away are:

Humble ourselves before the LORD and ask for Him to help us and teach us and reveal Himself to us in His word. So that we might truly be converted, or changed, and so that we become like or as little children. But wait! Are you saying we should be childish? NO, not childish in our behavior or thinking; but innocent as children, pure as children. Children are always learning and growing. They trust their Father and no one can convince them that their Father is wrong, or that they can’t TRUST Him. They believe His word with everything that is in them!

Praise God! Keep it simple and believe in Jesus Christ, hold onto your faith! Don’t become like teenagers who go out into the world and begin listening to worldly people such as their teachers or so many other unbelievers trying to confuse you. Holding on to the truth of Jesus Christ and be not deceived.

John 6:29

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


Commentary

The question is, “Who sent Jesus Christ?” For believers, it’s not really a question…because we know God the Father sent Him.

However for some, it is a question. Some say Jesus is a prophet, some say He was merely a teacher.

The issue on the table is His claim to deity; the claim He made to be God. Being a Christian means you believe that claim, and also believe He took the fullness of God’s wrath on the cross in our place.

Among all the things you could “do for God”, one thing matters most. Believe in Jesus Christ – “who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)

God Cares

Genesis 6:5-9

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Commentary

Verse 5 isn’t talking about people having weak moments; the picture here is a total and complete corruption of the human heart. The people here were “hell-bent” on anything and everything except for God. In this moment, we see God’s desire for justice. Yet, Noah found favor. The KJV says that Noah found grace. God is Just, and God gives grace. The cost of sin is death and we are saved from that cost by Jesus. God’s wrath for all sin hit Jesus instead of us. That makes Jesus “the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him”. (John 14:6)
