WEEK 40, Day 3, Wednesday, 2 October 2019

Observations from today’s readings and today’s S-WOD, Wednesday, 2 October 19:

James 2:19, 20 — “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!”

Many who claim to be Christian don’t even have a demon-level of faith — they don’t even shudder. Believing in Jesus isn’t the same as having a saving faith in Jesus, trusting, following, and loving Jesus. The Great Commission does not call us to go into the world and make “believers”; it calls us to make “disciples”, disciplined, followers of Christ who obey Him out of love. Obedience is not the path to salvation but rather the evidence of salvation. “Even a child makes himself known by his acts, by whether his conduct is pure and upright.” (Proverbs 20:11)

– Psalm 96:9 — Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!

– Psalm 99:1 — The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble! He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!

“Cross” Fit S-WOD (Spiritual Workout of the Day) – 2 October 19: “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1)
