Made New

When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we become a new creation. We are restored by Jesus to what God had originally created us to be. Everything about our lives change, because we are transformed into the likeness of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

Just like a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, we too are changed when we accepted Jesus as our Savior. God transforms a person from being a sinner who does not know God and who does wrong into a person who loves God and wants to do right. Instead of doing and living the way we what to, we live to be like Jesus. Our desire is to please Him. Instead of looking at people, things and the world through our eyes we see everything through the eyes of Jesus. Everything about us becomes new!

Born Again

Late one night one of the religious leaders named Nicodemus went to speak to Jesus. Nicodemus recognized Jesus as a teacher sent from God. As Jesus was explaining the Scriptures with him, He said something Nicodemus did not understand. Jesus told Nicodemus that no one can see the kingdom of God unless they have been born again. Nicodemus did not understand what Jesus was talking about. How could a person be born again?”, he wondered. People today still ask that same question.

John 3:3 NKJV

“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’ ”

Nicodemus had never heard about “being born again.” Jesus explained to Nicodemus that you must be spiritually born again. He had a hard time fully understanding that it isn’t enough just to know God. Jesus told him that he had to begin a new life by being “born again.” Jesus continued to explain to Nicodemus who He was and what was going to happen to Him and why. Nicodemus listened very carefully to Jesus as He spoke. After the things that Jesus spoke about came true (after Jesus’ crucifixion) Nicodemus helped prepare the body of Jesus for burial.

John 19:38-42 NKJV

“After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.

Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.

Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews’ Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby.”

Nicodemus had believed the things that Jesus told him and he was born again! Like Nicodemus we must believe in Jesus in order to be born again.

New Life In Christ

In the beginning God made everything and it was good. God would come down from heaven and walk with Adam and Eve in the evening. Man enjoyed a very intimate (close) relationship with God. Everything was perfect until sin entered into the picture. Because of the sin man could no longer enjoy the intimate relationship with God. God is a holy God and sin cannot come into His presence. Sin had separated man from God and it brought spiritual death into the world.

Romans 3:23 NKJV

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

Everyone has sinned and that means that we have been separated from God and are spiritually dead. We must experience new life in Jesus if we want a relationship with God – we must be born again. God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus to pay our penalty for our sins. As Jesus hung on the cross, God laid on Jesus the sins of the whole world upon Him – all our sins were put on the sinless Son of God. Jesus suffered much on the cross then He died. Jesus took our punishment for our sins upon Him and the blood that He shed made a way for us to be forgiven.

John 3:16-17 NKJV

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Each one of us must be born again (to have our sins forgiven). We must experience the new birth that we receive when we admit that we have sinned and ask Jesus to forgive us. When we experience this new birth we become part of the family of God – we are born into His family.

John 1:12 NKJV

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”

The first thing that we must do is admit that we have sinned against a holy God. Then we must be willing to turn from our sin and believe that only Jesus can forgive us of our sins. When we admit that we have sinned, believe that Jesus can forgive us of our sins and confess our sins to Him, God will forgive us and we will experience a new birth. We are not the same – we are changed by the power of God.

Transformed By The Word

God’s Word shows us how we really are and how we should be. We must allow the Word of God to transform us into the image of Christ. When we look at ourselves through the mirror of God’s Word and submit ourselves to the work of the Holy Spirit, we are gloriously transformed more and more into Christ’s image.

Romans 12:2 NKJV

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Christians must not allow the world to set their standards or morals. They are to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. All Christians are called to lives of holiness. It is a commandment from God – not a suggestion. Holy living shows our true identity. After a person accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior they are no longer of this world – they belong to God. Each person will stand before God and give an account for the way that they lived. For the things that they did, didn’t do.

Fellowship With Christ

Just as fruit is produced on the branches of a healthy tree or vine, so spiritual fruit comes from the life of a believer in close daily fellowship with Jesus. If we desire to have good fruit in our lives we must remain in Christ.

Matthew 12:33-37 NKJV

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you , being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasures of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasures brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment, and by your words you will be condemned.’ ”

Ephesians 5:3-5 NKJV

“But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.”

The goodness of our fruit depends on how spiritually healthy and strong we are. The Holy Spirit who lives inside of the believer desires to produce good fruit in us and through us, however we must submit to Him in order for this to take place.

Memory Verse

John 1:12 NKJV

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”

Final Days – Jesus’ Last 48 Days On Earth

FINAL DAYS (2)Memory Verse: Acts 4:11

Life Application: Jesus will come again.

 

Bible Text:

Acts 4:11

John 12:12- 13

Matthew 26:17-25

John 13:2-11

Matthew 26:26-30

Matthew 26:36-46

Matthew 27:19-24

Matthew 27:27-31

Matthew 27: 50-54

Matthew 28:5-7

Matthew 28:19,20

Acts 1:4-11

 

After Jesus had ministered for 3 years, He had made several enemies among the Jewish leaders. They did not believe that He was the Son of God. They wanted Him killed and plotted how they could do it without turning the people against them. One of Jesus’ disciples, Judas, agreed to point Jesus out to them.

Day 1 – The Triumphal Entry (Palm Sunday)

John 12:12- 13 NKJV

“The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” The King of Israel!”

On the Sunday, prior to Jesus’ crucifixion on Friday, He rode into Jerusalem riding on a donkey. Today we know this event as Palm Sunday. The priest had just passed by the people with the Passover lamb that was going to be sacrificed on Passover. When the people saw Jesus they began to wave the palm branches that they had and shout “Hosanna!” “Hosanna” means save us now!

The crowds spread their coats on the ground for the donkey with Jesus to walk over. This made the religious leaders very angry. After this Jesus taught in the temple for several days after this event.

Day 5 – Passover

On the Thursday, after arriving on Sunday, Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples. Today, many refer to this as the Last Supper. Passover is a feast remembering the exodus from Egypt. Passover also points to Jesus Christ as our Passover lamb. During the meal Jesus told them that one of them would betray Him. Shortly after saying that, Judas left the room and went to the religious leaders.

Matthew 26:17-25 NKJV

“Now on the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?”
And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.”’”
So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
When evening had come, He sat down with the twelve.
Now as they were eating, He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me.”
And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to Him, “Lord, is it I?”
He answered and said, “He who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me.
The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.”
Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?” He said to him, “You have said it.”

When the Passover meal was ended Jesus washed the disciples feet.

John 13:2-11 NKJV

“And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him,
Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God,
rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, “Lord, are You washing my feet?” Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.” Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!” Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.” For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, “You are not all clean.”

Day 5 – Communion

Matthew 26:26-30 NKJV

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.
For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.”

During the meal, Jesus gave us the Lord’s Supper (communion). Communion is a very intimate time between a person and Jesus. It is a time to remember what Jesus has provided for us, a time to look toward His future return, and a time to commit to preparing to be His bride.

 

Day 5 – Garden of Gethsemane

Matthew 26:36-46 NKJV

“Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.”
And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.
Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”
He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”
Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”

Late Thursday night, after Jesus and His remaining 11 disciples finished the Passover meal and the institution of communion, they sang a hymn then went to the Garden of Gethsemane. In the Garden Jesus spent the night in prayer.

Jesus knew that He was about to be crucified. He was praying for God to give Him the strength to fulfill what He had came to do. Jesus was also praying for us and for God’s will to be done.

 

Day 6 – Jesus’ Arrest & Trial

Matthew 26:47-50 NKJV

“And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.
Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.”
Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed Him.
But Jesus said to him, “Friend, why have you come?” Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him.”

In the pre-dawn hours of Friday morning, while Jesus was in the Garden, Judas lead a group of soldiers to Jesus and the disciples. Judas knew that he would find Jesus there. Judas went up to Jesus and kissed Him – Judas had told the religious leaders that the one he kissed would be Jesus.

John 5:18 NKJV

“Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.”

The soldiers arrested Jesus and He was charged with blasphemy. First Jesus was taken to Annas, then He was led to the high priest Caiaphas, and the Sanhedrin. They wanted Jesus killed, but according to their “religious laws” they could not do it personally, so they sent Jesus to Pontius Pilate. Caiaphas, and the Sanhedrin arranged for false witnesses to testify against Jesus, hoping that Pontius Pilate would have Jesus crucified.

Matthew 26:57-58 NKJV

“And those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. But Peter followed Him at a distance to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.”

Pontius Pilate questioned Jesus then had Jesus sent to Herod. Herod and his men mocked Jesus then sent Him back to Pontius Pilate.

Matthew 27:19-24 NKJV

“While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.”
But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus.
The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said, “Barabbas!”
Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”
Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.”

Pontius Pilate questioned Jesus again and found no fault in Him. He wanted to have Jesus whipped then released. The religious leaders and the crowd began to cry out, “Crucify Him!”. In the end, Pontius Pilate sentencing Jesus to death.

 

Day 6 – Jesus’ Crucifixion, Death & Burial

Matthew 27:27-31 NKJV

“Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole garrison around Him.
And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”
Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified.”

God knew that sin had to be punished and that someone who had never sinned would needed to take the punishment. Jesus Christ was the only person that never sinned, therefore He was the only person that would be acceptable as a sacrifice. Jesus made a way to God by dying on the cross for our sins.

The Roman soldiers publicly whipped Jesus and then hung Him on a cross at 3:00 pm, at the same time that the Passover lamb was being sacrificed. Jesus was crucified at a place called Golgotha, also known as the “Skull.”

Crucifixion was a humiliating and agonizing form of death. Jesus chose to suffer the whipping, the bruising, and the pain of the cross because He knew it was the only way a sacrifice could be made for the sins of the world.

As Jesus hung on the cross He could have called angels to rescue Him, but He chose not to. He was obedient to the Father even to the point of death.

Matthew 27: 50-54 NKJV

“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”

Jesus was taken down from the cross prior to 6:00 pm and buried in a garden tomb that was secured with an official Roman seal and guard.

 

Day 8 – The Empty Tomb / Jesus’ Resurrection

On the first day of the week (early Sunday morning) some of Jesus’ friends, Mary Magdalene and another Mary, went to finish anointing Jesus’ body. In the garden they met an angel who told them that Jesus was not there. The angel told them to, “Come and see the place where He lay, then go quickly and tell the disciples.”

Jesus has risen from the dead and He was no longer in the tomb.

Matthew 28:5-7 NKJV

“But the angel answered and said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.’ ”

 

Day 8 – Jesus Goes Into Hades and to Heaven

After Jesus’ resurrection He went to Hades to preach to the people that had died and to take the keys to Death and Hell from Satan. When Jesus left Hades with the keys to Death and Hell, He led those that had been captive free. Then Jesus went to the temple in heaven and presented His own blood as a sacrifice for all the sins of every person.

 

Day 8 – Day 48

After Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, He stayed on earth for 40 days, appearing to many different people, then He ascended into heaven. During this time Jesus told His followers that He would send them a Helper, the Holy Spirit, after He left. Prior to His ascension, Jesus also told His followers to go into all the world and make disciples.

Matthew 28:19,20 NIV

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Day 48 – Jesus Returns To Heaven

Jesus gave the disciples the command to go into all the world and make disciples. We call this commandment “The Great Commission.”

Acts 1:4-11 NKJV

“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

After Jesus gave the command, He told them that they would receive power to be His witnesses. As soon as He spoke that He began to float up into heaven. Those standing there watch Jesus go out of sight. Then two angels appeared to them and told them that Jesus would return to earth the same way He left.

Psalm 103

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executes righteousness And justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, To such as keep His covenant, And to those who remember His commandments to do them. The Lord has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure. Bless the Lord, all His works, In all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!”

Psalm 103 is a psalm of praise unto God for His mercy, grace, love and benefits. This psalm gives us a glimpse of how to worship God’s way.

We are to:

*use every part of us to worship God

*make time to worship God

*remember the things God has done

*realize how wonderful God is and who He is

*bless the Lord

 

I. Use every part of ourselves to worship God / Psalm 103:1

Psalm 103:1 NKJV

“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!”

Your enemy, Satan, doesn’t want you to worship God. He will try to get you to use your mouth, your heart, your mind, your hands, your feet, your eyes, and your ears for anything and everything except to honor God. Remember that God gave you your body and mind so you could use them to worship Him and to give Him glory. Use every part of you – hold nothing back.

* You can use your mouth to praise God by telling Him how wonderful He is and how much you love Him.

* You can use your mind to think about God and His goodness.

* You can use your heart to love God for who He is.

* You can use your hands to play songs of worship to God, or lift them in surrender and worship unto Him.

* You can use your feet to take you places where you can worship God in public and in private, or to dance in His presence.

* You can use your eyes to notice what God has done for you (both spiritual and physical eyes).

* You can use you ears (both spiritual and physical) to hear God’s voice.

II. Make time to worship God / Psalm 103:2-14

In our busy world we must make time to worship God. If we do not make time our enemy, Satan, will keep us so busy that we don’t have time to truly worship God and minister to Him.

Psalm 103:2 NKJV

“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and forget not all His benefits.”

1 Chronicles 16:29 NKJV

“Give thanks to the Lord, the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!”

You need to remind yourself as David did that you should take time to worship God. Often people think they are too busy to worship God. Yet God made us to worship Him. They work and play and do lots of other things, and then they don’t have time for God. David knew it would be easy to get “too busy” and forget God’s goodness, but he determined he wasn’t going to do that.

 

III. Remember the things that God has done / Psalm 103:3-14

We are to spend time musing the things of God. The things that He has done in our lives and the things that He is going to do. Where He has brought us from and where He is taking us. To muse means to be completely absorbed in thought, to ponder or to meditate.

Psalm 39:3 NKJV

“My heart was hot within me; While I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue”

Psalm 143:5 NKJV

“I remember the days of old; I meditate on all your works; I muse on the work of your hands. I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land.”

Luke 3:15 KJV

“And all the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not”

We must remember and meditate on God’s benefits. Some of the benefits are forgiveness, salvation, healing, protection, lovingkindness, provision, help, patience, correction, and sympathy. Through Jesus Christ we have been redeemed. We have been bought back – ransomed. During the times that the Bible was written, a person that had been sold into slavery could be bought back, ransomed for a price. Jesus paid our ransom, our forgiveness and salvation with His own blood.

Psalm 103:3 NKJV

“Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases”

Titus 2:11 NKJV

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men”

Ephesians 1:7 NKJV

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the

riches of His grace”

Psalm 103:12 NKJV

“As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

Jesus provided healing for us through His body. Every stripe that He received was for us – for our healing. The price for our healing has already been paid.

Psalm 103:3 NKJV

“Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases”

James 5:16b NKJV

“…and pray for one another, that you may be healed.”

Isaiah 53:5 NKJV

“But He was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed.”

The Lord is our protection (our shield / our refuge) from danger.

Psalm 103:4 NKJV

“Who redeems your life from destruction…”

2 Samuel 22:31 NKJV and Psalm 18:30 NKJV

“As for God, His way is perfect;

The word of the Lord is proven;

He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”

A refuge is a place of safety and security. The Lord is our shelter, our protection from danger, trouble. He is our safety and security.

2 Samuel 22:2-4 NKJV

“And he said:

‘The Lord is my rock and my fortress and

The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;

My shield and the horn of my salvation,

My stronghold and my refuge;

My Savior, You save me from violence.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;

So shall I be saved from my enemies.’ ”

During times of trouble and danger we can take refuge in God.

Psalm 119:114 NKJV

“You are my hiding place and my shield;

I hope in Your word.”

The Lord showers us with love and kindness. His mercy to us is new every day.

Psalm 103:4 NKJV

“…Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.”

The Lord provides our food as well as many other blessings.

Psalm 103:5 NKJV

“Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”

Every good gift (and everything we need) comes from the Lord.

James 1:17 NKJV

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father

of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

John 3:27 NKJV

“John answered and said, ‘A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from

heaven.”

When the enemy comes (in whatever form) against you, the Lord is there to help.

Psalm 103:6 NKJV

“The Lord executes righteousness

And justice for all who are oppressed”

The Lord is ready, willing and able to help those that the enemy is coming against in an attempt to depress and oppress.

Psalm 12:5 NKJV

“ ‘For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,

Now I will arise,’ says the Lord;

‘I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.’ ”

Poor could be describe as any number of things. It could mean having a few things or nothing; lacking money or property; needy, not good in quality, lacking something needed, scanty, insufficient, inadequate, lacking ability, inefficient, not satisfactory; frail; needing pity; unfortunate; not favorable; shabby or worn out. Every person is “poor” in some area of their life and is in need of God’s help and intervention.

Correction is an attempt to change or correct a mistake or error.

Psalm 103:8-9 NKJV

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.

He will not always strive with us,

Nor will He keep His anger forever.”

God is very patient with us and He corrects those that He loves. He desire to help us change our wrong behavior and attitudes.

Deuteronomy 8:5 NKJV

“You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God

chastens you.”

Hebrews 12:5a-11 NKJV

“… ‘My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

For whom the Lord loves He chastens,And scourges every son whom He receives.’

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a

father does not chasten ?But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are

illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect.

Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?

For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit,

that we may be partakers of Hid holiness.

Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it

yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

Correction can also be punishment or rebuke. As believers we should be in subjection to the discipline of the Lord. All of God’s discipline is for our good and our benefit. God disciplines us in love because He wants to make us better. He desires for us to be a holy people. The Lord has sympathy on man. He shares our sorrows and troubles – we are not alone.

Psalm 103:13-14 NKJV

“As a father pities his children,

So the Lord pities those who fear Him,

For He knows our frame;

He remembers that we are dust.”

The Lord pities those who fear (respect / reverence) Him. Just as a father feels sorrow for his child’s suffering or distress, the Lord feels for us, His creation.

 

Malachi 4:2-3 NKJV

“’But to you who fear My name

The Sun of Righteousness shall arise

With healing in His wings;

And you shall go out

And grow fat like stall-fed calves.

You shall trample the wicked,

For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet

On the day that I do this’

Says the Lord of hosts.”

Of all the things to remember most, we must remember that a price was paid for our forgiveness. And it was paid out of love. David was especially thankful for God’s promise to forgive his sins. He understood what a wonderful blessing it is to be cleansed and forgiven. God loves you so much that He does not want to be separated from you. Sin separates man from God.

John 3:16-17 NKJV

For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in

Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world

through Him might be saved.”

God is a holy God and sin breaks off our fellowship with Him. It is because God wants to cleanse you and forgive you of your sin that He sent Jesus to die on the cross. God requires that blood be shed to pay for sin.

Hebrews 9:22 NKJV

“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”

Only the precious blood of Jesus can cleanse us from our sin and unrighteousness, making it possible for us to have fellowship with our holy God. Jesus shed His blood to pay for the sins of everyone. It is up to each of us to either accept the gift of salvation and forgiveness or to reject it.

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and

the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

You can accept the gift of salvation by admitting that you are a sinner, believing in Jesus, asking Him to forgive you, and turning away from sin (forsake sin.) Everyone who wants to receive salvation must admit that they havesinned.

Romans 3:23 NKJV

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Everyone who wants to receive salvation must believe in Jesus Christ.

Acts 16:31 NKJV

“So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your

household.’ ”

We must believe that Jesus is the Son of God (the deity of Jesus Christ).

We must believe that Jesus came to this earth through a virgin birth.

We must believe that Jesus lived a sinless life while here on earth.

We must believe that Jesus died on the cross, and that His blood was shed for the remission of our sins.

We must believe that Jesus rose from the grave, that He is alive in heaven and that He will return to earth again.

Everyone who wants to receive salvation must confess their sin to God. Today we have direct access to God through Jesus, therefore we do not have to confess our sin to a priest or another person. We can go directly to God with our confession.

1 John 1:9 NKJV

“”If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from

all unrighteousness.”

Everyone who wants true salvation must forsake their sin. Once you have experienced the full knowledge of Christ and His salvation, do not turn back. Knowledge of Christ without obedience to Christ can be very dangerous. It is not enough to know that we are to turn from evil, we must do it. Don’t return to your old (sinful) ways.

2 Peter 2:20-22 NKJV

“For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the

Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end

is worse for them than the beginning,

For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than

having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: ‘A dog returns to his own

vomit,’ and, ‘a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

God takes the commitment that we make when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior very serious. Once we become part of the kingdom of God we are not to look back, or to return to our old ways.

Luke 9:62 NKJV

“But Jesus said to him, ‘No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit

for the kingdom of God.”

Everyone that experiences true salvation will be received by God. True repentance is being sorry for doing wrong (for going against God), not being sorry that you were caught doing wrong. If we are truly sorry that we have sinned and we go to Jesus for forgiveness, we will receive forgiveness.

Hebrews 9:14 NKJV

“how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself

without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

John 6:37 NKJV

“All that the Father gives me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no

means cast out.”

IV. Believe the promises of God: Psalm 103:15-19

David believed in the promises of God. He knew and believed with all his heart that God’s mercy is from everlasting to everlasting.

Psalm 103:15-19 NKJV

“As for man, his days are like grass;

As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

For the wind passes over it, and it is gone,

And its place remembers it no more.

But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting

On those who fear Him,

And His righteousness to children’s children,

To such as keep His covenant,

And to those who remember His commandments to do them.

The Lord has established His throne in heaven,

And His kingdom rules over all.”

David remembered all that God had done for him. He also believed that God would do everything that He promised He would. David was thankful for the past things done and the future promises. We too must remember all that God has done for us and all that He has said that He will do. The Lord is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Hebrews 13:8 NKJV

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

He never changes and He always keeps His promises.

2 Peter 3:8-9 NKJV

“But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand

years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering

toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

V. Realize how wonderful God is and who He is / Psalm 103:7-21

Moses and David served the same God that we do. A God that performed many miracles. A God that is merciful, a God that is our Father, a God that understands our frailties, a God that is everlasting, and a God that is above all things.

Our God is a miracle working God. We serve a God that can and does perform miracles. There is nothing that our God can not do.

Psalm 103:7 NKJV

“He made know His ways to Moses,

His acts to the children of Israel.”

Our God is merciful. We serve a God that no one could stand before if He dealt with us according to our sins.

Psalm 103:8 NKJV

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.”

God does not keep a count (record) of confessed sin (things that we have asked forgiveness for.)

Jeremiah 31:34 NKJV

“No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the

Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the

Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Psalm 130:3-4 NKJV

“If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could stand?

But there is forgiveness with You,

That You may be feared.”

God is much kinder toward us than justice requires. He is kinder to us than we could ever dream of or expect. His mercy toward us is truly a blessing. Our God is our Father. Every person that has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is a child of God. They have been born (reborn) into the family of God.

Matthew 23:9 NKJV

“…for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.”

Isaiah 63:16 NKJV

“Doubtless You are our Father,

Though Abraham was ignorant of us,

And Israel does not acknowledge us.

You, O Lord, are our Father;

Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.”

Psalm 103:13 NKJV

“As a father pities his children,

So the Lord pities those who fear Him.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV

“Do you thus deal with the Lord,

O foolish and unwise people?

Is He not your Father, who bought you?

Has He not made you and established you?”

Malachi 2:10 NKJV

“Have we not all one Father?

Has not one God created us?

Why do we deal treacherously with one another

By profaning the covenant of the fathers?”

Matthew 6:14 NKJV

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your

trespasses.”

Luke 6:36 NKJV

“Therefore be merciful just as your Father also is merciful.”

Our God understands human frailties. God created us and He knows all about us. He knows our strengths and He knows our weaknesses. He understands us and He is patient and full of mercy concerning our human frailties.

Psalm 103:14 NKJV

“For He know our frame;

He remembers that we are dust.”

God’s understanding is without limits, knows no bounds and is extremely great.

Psalms 147:5 NKJV

“Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;

His understanding is infinite.”

Our God’s mercy is everlasting.

Psalm 103:17-18 NKJV

“But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting

On those who fear Him,

And His righteousness to children’s children

To such as keep His covenant,

And to those who remember His commandments to do them.”

God’s mercy (unmerited favor) and love are forever. There is no end or stopping them.

I Chronicles 16:34 NKJV

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.”

Psalm 52:8 NKJV

“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God;

I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.”

Psalm 100:5 NKJV

“For the Lord is good;

His mercy is everlasting

And His truth endures to all generations.”

Our God is above all things.

Psalm 103:19-21 NKJV

“The Lord has established His throne in heaven,

And His kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, you His angels,

Who excel in strength, who do His word,

Heeding the voice of His word

Bless the Lord, all you His hosts,

You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.”

When David thought about God’s greatness, he couldn’t help worshiping Him. To worship means to ascribe worth (value) to someone or something. When we worship God we tell Him how much we love Him , how much He means to us, how much we value Him, and how much we admire Him. One way to worship God is to tell Him how much you appreciate His beauty and His goodness. Only as you get to know God in an intimate way and yield to the Holy Spirit will you be able to worship Him the way He deserves to be worshiped. God must be worshiped in spirit and in truth. We must worship God for who He is, and out of love to Him. God gives a special joy to those who minister to Him in worship.

VI. Bless the Lord / Psalm 103:22

Psalm 103:22 NKJV

“Bless the Lord, all His works,

In all places of His dominion.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!”

Like David, we need to bless the Lord. When David remembered all about God, he was so filled with thanksgiving that he felt unable to properly express himself. He called upon the angels and all the other created beings on earth to help him worship God. Worship was not a one time thing with David – he repeatedly offered up thanksgiving, praise and worship. If we do not give praise and worship to God, the rocks and the trees will.

Luke 19:40 NKJV

“But He answered to them, ‘I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would

immediately cry out.”

Everyone and anyone can offer thanksgiving to God, even someone with sin in their life, but it takes clean hands and clean heart to worship God. You must have an intimate relationship with God to truly worship Him. If you have not called upon Jesus for forgiveness, you are ignoring God’s goodness to you and you are denying yourself of an intimate relationship with Him. Both in this world and in the one to come.

Romans 10:13 NKJV

“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Isaiah 1:18 NKJV

“ ‘Come now, and let us reason together,’ Says the Lord,

‘Though your sins are like scarlet,

They shall be as white as snow;

Though they are red like crimson,

They shall be as wool’ ”

God does not compromise with us concerning our sin and the seriousness of it. Because of His great love for us He is willing to forgive (pardon) us. Before we can be forgiven we must come to a realization that we have sinned against a holy God – that we have disregarded and broken His commandments. We must admit that we are at fault. God is waiting, willing and able to forgive us of our sins.

When we turn to Him in true repentance He will forgive us. The forgiveness that God offers us is made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. There is no way to heaven but by Jesus. He is the only way – the way, the truth and the life.

John 14:6 NKJV

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

When Jesus willingly laid down His life on the cross it made salvation available to every person that had ever lived and every person that would live. All we have to do is repent of our sins. When we do we will experience the miracle of salvation. You can receive the miracle of salvation by:

Admitting that you have sinned against God.

1 John 1:8 NKJV

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”

Romans 3:23 NKJV

“ for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

James 4:17 NKJV

“Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”

 

Believing In Jesus Christ.

John 3:16-17 NKJV

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Romans 5:8 NKJV

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

1 Peter 2:24 NKJV

“who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.”

Acts 16:31

“Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved”

Confessing your sins to God.

1 John 1:9 NKJV

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”

Romans 10:9 NKJV

“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
