14. Jesus' Daily Promises

The Ripple Effect

Jesus' daily promises are that he will be with us always and will empower his disciples everywhere. His daily promises are the very best training and equipment for his followers. His colleague and brother in the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit, does this personally! Jesus assures us in Acts 1.8, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." The spread of Christianity is like a ripple effect in a pond. Someone has wisely written, "God's Word overflows with promises from our Creator to provide and deliver. The Bible is the ultimate source for truth, and God is faithful to fulfill all His promises. As you read these Bible verses about the promises of God, claim them over your life! He gives freedom from addiction, deliverance from sin and evil, financial provision, hope for the lost and hurting family and friends. He will enable you to overcome depression, recover a broken marriage, receive good health and healing. You can be free from fear and anxiety, receive strength, and many more blessings and gifts that God promises to provide for those who believe in Him."

Isaiah 54.10 "Though the mountains are shaken, and the hills are removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you."

Memorize Scripture

Memorize the Scriptures that promise to overcome whatever problem you may be facing today. Pray over them and speak them out loud, and you will see God move in your life for his glory and your good! Jesus promises us the prospect of success in our endeavors every day. He commissions his disciples in Mark 16.15-16. He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Teach Other Disciples

Jesus faceThe Early Church had to begin its crusade right where they were and teach other disciples, according to Luke 24.47, "repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." Jesus' purpose is expounded further in Acts 5.31, "God exalted him to his right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins." The prediction of Christ's death and resurrection connects with the necessary human response of repentance. Jesus urges his army to keep on the move and to seek to teach other disciples about repentance and forgiveness of sins everywhere they went. In Matthew 28.18-20, Jesus also shows by what authority he bases this command, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Followers are to teach other disciples and train them to be teachers like themselves. Saint Paul urges this concept in 2 Timothy 2.2 to his disciple Timothy, "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others." Timothy has no doubt heard this many times on his missionary journeys with Saint Paul. Saint Paul gives three examples. First, the soldier who wants to please his commanding officer in 2 Timothy 2.3 "Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus." Second, The athlete who follows the rules of the games in 2 Timothy 2.5 "Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules." Third, the farmer who works his fields as in 2 Timothy 2.6, "The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops." Paul encourages Timothy to make followers of Jesus and teach other disciples everywhere who would teach others.
