Daily Bible Study - kindly provided by Premier and the Bible Society

Do have a look at the Premier Daily Bible reading below. It is really so good.

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Friday 12 August   1 John 3:16

Probably the most famous verse in the whole bible is John 3.16: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” It’s a wonderful verse and takes us to heart of the good news. But we need to read it alongside today’s verse, 1 John 3:16, its natural twin. This verse reminds us that it is not only about God loving us and sending Jesus for our salvation, but also about us, in turn, offering up our lives for our Christian brothers and sisters.

I thank God for the amazing Christians that I have known over the years who have poured out their lives for others. I think of children’s and youth workers, deacons and elders, ministers and carers who, because of their love for God, have gladly given everything to support other people. They have thought little of their personal safety or health but have kept on loving in the face of disappointment, discouragement and ill health. They looked for no reward other than to know that they had faithfully served their Lord.

This practical love takes many forms. In the next verse, John speaks of the obligation on those who have enough money to show compassion to Christian brothers and sisters who are in need. C.H. Dodd, the great biblical scholar, defined love as “the willingness to surrender that which has value for our own life, to enrich the life of another.” That is to say, love is always costly. It involves giving to others something that we genuinely value, but doing so gladly in order to bring joy and blessing to them. It’s a challenging way to live life, but it’s God’s way and is always the best.

QUESTION

As you serve God today what is he calling you to give to others in need?

PRAYER

Loving Father, thank you for sending Jesus into the world to be my Saviour. Help me to be more ready to be loving and generous to others. Amen

Godshiker - Watching, waiting and catching the wave of faith

Our focus today is all about watching, waiting and building faith – and then crucially catching the wave of faith as we build our spiritual treasure of faith. 

The art of surfing is waiting and watching for the big wave and then launching to catch the power of the wave. Momentarily we have to travel as fast as the wave if we are to share in the power of the wave. More..
