Mission: Daily Bread Baptist Church is a body of baptized believers banded together for the proclamation of the Gospel. Knowing God intimately through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is our first priority. We seek to reach the lost, minister to the broken hearted, gather the sheep that have been scattered, and make plain the way of the Lord to those who have been mislead. We are totally committed to the teaching of God's Word in order to prepare believers for Christian service.
Operating as usual
"And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not".
JESUS is the light of the world. Jesus commands us to be lights as well. We are to reflect His light so that others can see it in us. His light is evident to others by the good deeds we do in faith through the power of the Holy Spirit.
When Moses led the people out of Egypt he had several crisis moments during those forty years. His greatest crisis was when he came back from the mountain and discovered the people had made a golden calf. It was after this he came to a profound conclusion.
Then Moses said to him, "If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?" (Ex 33:15-16).
The difference between a Christian in the world and a non-believer should be that the Christian brings the presence of God with him wherever he/she goes. However, this is not always the case. A Christian can shut out the presence of God with their behavior. Like the Israelites who experienced great miracles in their lives but began to worship idols, we can move away from God. Sin separates us from God. His presence moves away from us. Moses realized, he too had to have the presence of God with him to lead such a people.
The prophet Malachi was saying a day is coming when you'll be able to recognize a clear difference between the righteous and the unrighteous. I believe such a time has come now. During this Coronavirus, can others recognize the difference in you? Does the life you live magnify our LORD? If not, ask God to fill you with His overflowing presence in all you do today.
"The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position"
Whenever God takes a saint to a very lowly state it is designed to accomplish something only that process can do. Job learned that "He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light" (Job 12:22). Job's trials allowed him to learn things about God, himself and his friends that we all needed to know as well. He assumed things about God that he had to recant: "Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know" (Job 42:3).
God reveals things in the dark places of circumstances that will be used to reveal something He wants you and others to know. He has sent you ahead to learn these things so that you and others will benefit from your unique experience. God views this place where you receive these truths as a high position. The world views it as a place to be despised.
"He called down a famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food; and he sent a man before them - Joseph, sold as a slave. They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons, till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the Lord proved him true" (Psalms 105:16-19). Joseph was also led to this high position. It was here he was prepared to be the most powerful man in the world as a thirty-year old. He learned many things about God during his captivity that was used later as a ruler over a nation.
So, if you find yourself in a lowly state, realize your lowly state is considered a high position by God that is preparation soil for revealing deep things from the dark places that God desires you to learn.
Happy New Year!
