Devotional Thought for Today – 03/09/2021

9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 2 Timothy 1:9

2 Timothy 1

¹Paul expresses great affection for Timothy. (v.1-5) Exhorts him to improve his spiritual gifts. (v.6-14) Tells of many who basely deserted him, but speaks with affection of Onesiphorus. (v.15-18) 

In the second section, Paul encourages Timothy to be bold in his testimony and sharing of the Gospel for God alone has given him gifts to accomplish this task. 

Our main text for today should not be read without v.8, Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

Note how it ends with God; which leads us directly to v.9 Who hath…  Some key points/biblical truths about found in verse 9:

      • It was God alone who saved us,
      • It was God alone who called us with a holy calling,
      • None of our works contributed in any way to our salvation
      • It was all according to His (God’s) own purpose
      • It was all according to His (God’s) own Grace,
      • This free gift was planned  in Christ Jesus before the world began
This verse makes it abundantly clear, as I have said many times, it is never about me and always about God.

What has God called you to do today? 

TODAY’S PRAYER

Thank You Father that You called me for a holy calling, according to Your purpose and great grace, which You granted me in Christ Jesus from all eternity. Let me never forget Faher, that You saved me and called me – not according to my own merit but by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I pray I can live a life fulfilling the purpose you have set forth for me daily and I pray all this in Jesus’s name, AMEN.

Praying with Fervency

Today instead of my writing a devotional I thought I would share this one from the teaching of John MacArthurDrawing Near was published back in the 1990s and is definitely a great read. 

Praying with Fervency

“I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes” (Dan. 9:3).
The more you understand God’s holiness, the more you’ll recognize your own sinfulness.

People view prayer differently. For some it is a last resort after all human options have been exhausted: “All I can do now is pray for you!” Others liken it to a spiritual spare tire—something used only in the event of an emergency. Many who should thrive on prayer have been lulled into complacency by an affluent and godless society.

Daniel, however, saw prayer as an opportunity to express the passion and fervency of his heart to the God he loved and served. In Daniel 9:3 he says, “I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him.” That implies he set apart a specific time to devote to thoughtful, earnest, and fervent prayer. That is further supported by the way he prepared himself through fasting and donning sackcloth and ashes—symbols of humility and deep contrition over sin.

It might seem unusual for a man of Daniel’s spiritual stature to be overwhelmed by his sense of sin, but the closer one draws to God, the more aware he is of his sinfulness. We see that in Paul, who called himself the foremost of all sinners (1 Tim. 1:15). That might seem like a ridiculous statement to us but Paul saw sin for what it was. So did Daniel.

The title “Lord God” in verse 3 emphasizes God’s sovereign rule over all things. Daniel knew that God had permitted the Babylonian Captivity and that He alone could deliver His people from it. Consequently, Daniel gave the Lord his undivided attention as he prayed and sought mercy for himself and his people.

Daniel’s fervency is a rebuke to much of the flippancy we hear in prayer today. It was profound because it was generated by God’s Word and grounded in His will.

James 5:16 says, “The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (KJV). Be like Daniel—a righteous person who prays fervently with great effect.

Suggestions for Prayer

      • Ask God to give you a greater sense of fervency in prayer.
      • Be sensitive to any sin that might be hindering your prayers.

For Further Study

Read Luke 11:5-13

      • What parable did Jesus tell to illustrate the benefits of humble, persistent prayer?
      • How did Jesus contrast earthly fathers with their heavenly Father?

One in Six Gen Z-ers “Identify” as LGBT

Let us be real this is SIN, that being said it is not smart or morally correct for “Christians” to take an in-your-face approach to condemn this sin. In the end, as the authors said: Reality eventually wins. This means that Christians have actual good news to offer a culture helplessly obsessed with but thoroughly confused about sex. Let us be there as Paul said in Ephesians: But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ.

One in Six Gen Z-ers “Identify” as LGBT

sad-lonely-depressed-asian-woman-on-sofa-at-home-FBS6CNV

If the last two Presidential elections, the last midterm elections, and every exit poll ever conducted can teach us anything, it’s to not put too much faith in polling. Still, a new Gallup poll released last month deserves a serious look. In a remarkable jump from prior years, one in six adult members of Gen Z (that is, ages 18 to 24) self-identify as LGBT.

Ezra 9 

Chapter nine can be divided into two sections. In v.1-4  Ezra cries out for the sins of the Jews. In v.5-14 he confesses their sins against the most Holy God. This brings us to our text for today v.15, Ezra’s final plea is amazing in its simplicity and truth. It is also so appropriate for today.

I know some of you are thinking, how can the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the sinful remnant there applicable to those in the world (especially the U.S.) today.  What was Israel’s great sin?  It was their continual rebellion against God (to be expected in natural man)  and the failure of the chosen to act. 

Yesterday I had the privilege of praying outside a Waffle House in Peral, MS with my good friend Gary “Shepard” Burd.  We played God Bless America,  read 2 Chronicles 7:13-14, Prayed for America, and sang Amazing Grace there in the parking lot.

It was our way of acknowledging  (as Ezra) the sins of America, and as Ezra, our way of declaring the remnant is here Lord, we understand we are so unworthy because of the sins of our nation, but please hear our prayers.

We chose to act. How about you? 

TODAY’S PRAYER

Lord God, Sovereign ruler of all the heavens and earth, we declare that we have sinned so greatly against you that we are completely without excuse and undeserving of any mercy. Your remnant is here to serve you, Lord, to Act, on your behalf, send your Spirit to guide our path that we do what you have called us to do and may honor and glorify you in our duties. – Amen

Persecution and Failed States Go Hand in Hand

In just the last few weeks, two mass kidnappings took place, both at schools in northwestern Nigeria. In the first, “unidentified gunmen” attacked a boarding school in Niger state, killing one student and kidnapping 42 others — 38 of the abducted were rescued a week later, presumably by government forces. The day before that rescue, “unknown gunmen” in neighboring Zamfara state kidnapped over 300 girls from a boarding school. On Tuesday, the AP reported the release of 270.
