But Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)

Our Weekly Daily Bread


Everything Designed Has A Designer
The design of the human body demands the existence of a designer.


Have you ever pondered all that's involved in the simple act of seeing? Scientists tell us that the delicate engineering of the eye's cornea and lens make the most advanced camera seem like a child's toy by comparison. The tiny rods and cones in the eye change light into electro-chemical impulses through processes the most sophisticated laboratory can't reproduce. And brain cells transform these electrical impulses into the miracle of perception-something no high-tech computer can come close to doing.

Engineering, chemistry, information processing-all are involved every time we open our eyes. Charles Darwin once stated that the thought of the eye, and how it could possibly be produced by natural selection, made him ill. Here's why. The human eye could not have evolved over long periods of time, because it is absolutely useless unless complete. The lens, which focuses light, would be useless without the retina, which senses light. And all the light received would serve no purpose without the nerve fibers which carry signals to the brain.

Vision involves a complete system of organs-all interrelated, all thoroughly designed. That's the way it is with the whole human body. Lungs and heart, nerves and muscles, all perform incredibly complicated tasks that depend on other incredibly complicated tasks. No wonder the Psalmist concluded that the human body speaks loud and clear of a wonderful Creator:

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."-Psalm 139:14. We don't have to go far to find the "works" of God. The evidence right in our own bodies points to an infinitely skillful designer.

If you were to mark ten coins from one to ten, place them in your pocket, shake them around, and then pull each one out and put it back in your pocket one by one, what is the likelihood you could do so in exact numerical sequence? By mathematical law you have only one chance in ten billion of taking them out in order from one to ten.

Now consider the chances of a stomach, brain, heart, lungs, arteries, veins, kidneys, ears, eyes, and teeth all developing together and beginning to function at the same moment in time. What is the most reasonable explanation for the design of the human body?

"Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,' . . . SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."-Genesis 1:26, 27.

The first man and woman could not just have happened. The Bible affirms that God designed us in His image. He is the great Engineering Intelligence who thought us up and brought us into being.

We don't have to go far to find the "works" of God. The evidence right in our own bodies points to an infinitely skillful designer.

Be Prepared

Who is included in the priesthood that needs to be prepared to share the gospel? 1 Peter 2:4-5

What purpose does God have for appointing us regular people into His priesthood? 1 Peter 2:9
Besides being ready, to tell others what He has done, how else are we to stay prepared? 1 Peter 2:12

Be A Witness

Do we need to be prepared with sermons to spout off when we recognize opportunities? Acts 1:8
What is a witness? Look it up in your Funk & Wagnalls or any dictionary.
Is a witness expected to perform with a slick, well-rehearsed speech? Proverbs 12:17

The Harvest Field

Did Jesus come to save only those who are members of His Church? 1 Timothy 2:3-6
Since Gods wants to save all people, will all be saved? John 3:36
What is God's plan to get the saving message of the gospel to all people? John 20:21

God's Plan

When Jesus ascended into heaven, the angel Gabriel approached Him and commented, "Master, you must have suffered terribly for men down there." "I did", He said. Gabriel asked, "Do they know all about how you loved them and what you did for them?" "Oh, no," said Jesus, "not yet. Right now only a handful of people in Palestine know." Gabriel was perplexed. "Then what have you done to let everyone know about your love for them?" Jesus said, "I've asked Peter, James, John and a few more friends to tell other people about Me. Those who are told will in turn tell other people about Me, and My story will be spread to the farthest reaches of the globe. Ultimately, all of mankind will hear about My life and what I have done." Gabriel frowned and looked rather skeptical. He knew well the sinfulness and irresponsibility of people. "Yes," he said,"but what if Peter and James and John grow weary? What if the people who come after them forget? What if way down in the 20th century people just don't tell others about You? Haven't You made any other plans?" Jesus answered, "I haven't made any other plans. I'm counting on them." Twenty centuries later He still has no other plan. He's counting on you and me. His early disciples adopted His priorities and devoted themselves to reaching their world. Christ counted on them and they delivered. Have we done as well?

Did Jesus make a mistake by giving us this responsibility?
What happens if we do not accept this responsibility?
Are you willing to accept and respond to this responsibility?
What ways have you responded to this responsibility in the past?

Your Friends

How are we to systematically make disciples of all nations? Acts 1:8
What is our world? Where is our Jerusalem? Luke 5:27-32
How should we consider the relationships we have with unchurched people? Esther 4:14b
How do we respond to our calling as God's way for our friends to hear His saving message? Acts 4:20

Look at this story of the Free Cars
(I wish it was really true)

John Smith was the greatest car dealer ever. He went out of his way to make sure everyone could get the car of their dreams. People came from all over to buy cars from him. His commitment to putting everyone behind the wheel of a great vehicle became even more obvious when he died. In his will, he gave instructions that the zillions of dollars of his estate be used to buy brand new cars for everyone in the community. Mr. Smith's dealership posted signs announcing the good news of the free cars. Some people responded and picked up new cars. Many others didn't believe it could be true so they just ignored the signs. I heard about what Mr. Smith had done and picked up my new car. It was that easy. I just had to accept what he had already bought for me. I told you about it and you got your new car. As you drive around the neighborhood in your new car, you notice your neighbors working on their old klunkers trying to keep them running. You wonder why no one has told them about the new cars waiting for them. As you keep driving, you see your brother walking along the road. You stop to pick him up in your new car and take him the rest of the way to the grocery store. After you drop him off, you make a wish tha

TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
The Bible - "The Inspired Word of God"

Reverend Francys Johnson
Discussion Leader
INTRODUCTION

Every word of the Bible is inspired or "God-breathed." In II Timothy 3:16 you read, "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God." Two words used in this text present fro us the apostolic view concerning the inspiration of the scriptures. The first word is "GRAPHE," which means "writing," and the second word is "THEOPNEUSTOS," which means, "God-breathed." It is the writing, the scriptures, that is "God-breathed," that is inspired. The inspiraion came form God to human personalities and human minds to give to us the bible. The word "Bible" comes form the Greek word "biblos" with its plural form "biblia. The Modern English form comes from the Latin and OldFrench "biblia" - meaning "writings." It is one book, the bible. "Canon" means a "rule, a measuring line, a standard, a model." The word is most unusual because it is the same word with the same meaning wherever found- Latin, Greek, Hebrew or English. A book entitled to a place in scripture is canonical- has met the standard, or rule, as the inspired Word of God.

BASIC SCRIPTURES

Psalm 119; Isaiah 28:9-13; Isaiah 40:6-8; I Corinthians 2:9-13; II Timothy 3:16; I Peter 1:23-25; II Peter 1 19-21; Luke 24:27, 44; Matthew 23:35;

OLD TESTAMENT

1. The 39 Books of the Old testament Canon of Scripture - II Peter 1:21
2. The Old Testment is the inspired word of God - II Timothy 3:16
3. 22 (5Books of Moses, 13 Prophetical books, 4 Hymns to God) - [39] 5 Books of Moses (Law), 12 Books of History (Joshua to Esther), 5 Books of Poetry (Job to Song of Solomon), 17 Books of Prophecy (Isaiah to Malachi)

NEW TESTAMENT

1. The New Testament was inspired by God, the Holy Spirit - Hebrew 1:1-2
2. The New Testament Books were written by an Apostle or a Campanion of Apostle Jesus promised the apostles that the Holy Spirit would reveal to them what they could not understand while He was still on earth. Look at John 16:12-15; Matthew 10:20; John 14:25-26

THE HOLY SPIRIT INSPIRED THE AUTHORS OF THE BIBLE

1. The Holy Men Spoke As They Were Moved By the Holy Spirit - II Peter 1:21
2. The Divine Source and the Human Instrument - Matthew 1:22

THE GREAT THEME OF THE BIBLE

1. By a creative act God broke the chain of human generation and produced the supernatural One - Jesus, the Son of God. - Galatians 4:4
2. The great theme, Jesus, binds the bible together. The theme was proclaimed in the Old Testament like this, "There is Someone coming." In the day of the incarnation it was announced, "Someone is come." In days of the endtime it is prophesied like this, "Someone is coming again." Jesus is the one great unifying factor who binds the Bible into onemessage - God's plan of redemption for us. - Galatians 4:5-6. Also Ephesians 2:4,5, 8.
3. The Lost Books of the Bible - The Apocrypha means "hidden or concealed" and is a group of 14 books.
4. "Pseudepigrapha" - "to write upon falsely."

CONCLUSION

The authority of the Bible is the Bible. One of the most important evidences of authority is also the simplest because the Bible is its own proof. There is no higher authority. The scriptures never need to be defended. The Bible defends itself. God theFather, and the Sona and the Holy Spirit bear witness to the authority of the bible. For instance, just as the Holy Spirit bears witness to every believer that he is a child of God (Romans 8:16), He also bears witness that the Bible is the Word of God (II Peter 1:20-21). Therefore, the final authority for our faith and practice (daily life) is the word of God. The teachings of Jesus are our highest authority in reference to the bible. No word of criticism can be leveled against His integrity. Even Pilate said, "I find no fault (crime) in this man" (Luke 23:4). Jesus taught the Bible with authority (Matthew 7:29). If the authority of Jesus is denied at this point , the entire foundation of God's plan of redemption falls with the Son of God. The entire bible is the authoratative word of God because of the testimony of God the Father, the testimony of the Bible itself, the witness of the Holy Spirit and the testimony of Jesus Christ. The Bible is the Word of God and can not be broken (John 10:35). In the volume of the book it is written of me, said Jesus (Psalm 40:7); (Hebrew10:7) Therefore, it is for us to bow to the authority of God's Word and to obey its teachings. It is God's message to man - total and complete for faith to live victoriously. It assures the believers of life everlasting.
