YOUR WEEKLY TASKS
Sometimes all we need is a boost. But where do you begin? What does God ask of you? Look in here for weekly tasks from scripture for you to act out today. Never underestimate obedience and putting faith into ACTION.
Have you just read something and wasn't quite sure what a word meant? Don't be bashful and mistakenly pass over it or pretend you know. Check it's meaning here! Or you can browse the database of biblical terminology.
A type of humbleness that usually presents itself when you don’t have much to offer. Paul talked to the Philippian church on being content--that whether you have a lot or not (abased), you are able to still keep your focus on God
Extreme disgust and hatred. As Christians, we tend to flee from such strong language, but the Bible often used this word to describe God’s feelings towards evil/sin and its affects. We are therefore called to also abhor evil.
Live and/or accept. Often in Scripture, both meanings are used. For example, when you abide in God and He in you, it means both to live within each other and to accept all that goes with that. Abiding in God, you must live in harmony.
The cause of continued pain in the body or mind. In Scripture, it often is specific to the trials that Christians must go through for Christ’s sake. We are to bear this pain and continue on knowing that Christ will relieve our pain.
Paying for your sins and therefore reconciling you and God. In the Old Testament, it was through literal and physical sacrifices (blood of lambs). But ever since Christ died, He is that sacrificed lamb that “atoned” or paid for our sins...once and for all.
Accepting something as truth. True belief in Jesus, as the Son of God whose sacrificial death takes away the sins of man, causes one to accept the Gospel and renounce sin. In response to this act of belief, God regenerates the heart and transforms the life of the believer. (Spirit First)
Measurement of distance, used in the Old Testament, of about 18 inches.
A written letter, but in spiritual context, a living epistle would mean that you are a walking, breathing letter of God’s Word and truths in order to point others to Christ.
Literally means “Praises Yah” (short for Yahweh); Praise the Lord!
Comes form the Hebrew word for "save" and we use it as praise.
Compassion for the helpless, needy, the offender, and the wrong. Although God’s Word calls for us to show mercy, most often in Scripture “mercy” refers to God’s action of mercy. Instead of seeing that we get quick, harsh punishment (ie death), He had compassion on us (nothing we did right) and sent His Son to die instead.
Disobeying God’s law by neglect, ignorance, or defiance
Provide evidence or proof of the existence or appearance of something as one recounts their religious conversion or experience. May be done in written format or orally, but must be the solemn truth as it gives witness to God. (Spirit First)
One of the major keys to going higher and deeper in your relationship with God is knowing His Word. But you can't know and love it until you READ it! We have provided a great schedule for reading the entire Bible in just one year! And it only takes about 30 minutes a day...definitely worth the time.
