Sin
Greek:ἁμαρτία
Transliteration: hamartia
Definition: Sin, wrongdoing; usually any act contrary to the will and law of God.

1But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.2If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.

3Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.”

4The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

5Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.6And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

1Matt. 18:6; 2Matt. 18:8-9; 3Matt. 18:21-22; 4John 1:29; 5John 8:34; 6John 16:8-11

The Supplied Life by Bill Freeman

The very nature of the Christian life requires that we live a life of being daily supplied. We begin this The Supplied Lifelife by receiving, and we go on by receiving. The Christian life is a supplied life. It is a life that has already been lived out and preservedfor us in the Holy Spirit. Now, that "lived out life" is received and supplied to us. The Christian life is not dependent on our own resources or any potential in ourselves. It has everything to do with the rich resources of Another life. Indeed, The Supplied Life is Christ Himself. He has been prepared by God for us and is now being supplied and furnished to us. The way God does this is by organically joining us as branches to Christ, the true Vine (John 15:1, 4-5). Thus, the supplied life comes by abiding as a branch in the Vine. Our daily need is to spend time with the Lord cultivating our life of abiding in Him so as to receive all the riches of His Person and work.

Here is the daily devotional for May 21st

God's Opportunity

"But Jesus Looked at them and said to them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."Matthew 19:26

The highest revelation of the church is to see that the church is Christ (1 Cor. 12:12). This is how the Father sees the church. This is how the apostles saw the church, and this is how we should see the church. THe vision of the church as Christ is truly a heavenly vision. The vision reduces us to Christ and becomes the governing factor controlling our daily life. By this vision, we will be escorted to Christ over and over again.

We need to see in the Bible the divine principle of measurement that governs God's relationship with man. God works with fallen man on the basis of this principle. First, He measures man according to His standard. Then this divine measurement becomes a demand upon man. This demand, in turn, reveal's man shortness and failure. Finally, man's realization of his failure is intended by God to escort him to Christ. In other words, the measurement and the subsequent demand of God is for one thing - to lead us to Christ to experience Another life.

God's desire to be man's life-supply. The way He fulfills this desire is by first measuring man to expose his shortness. By this measuring He escorts man out of his own resources into God Himself as his boundless supply. Thus, in God's economy the measuring Word of God is always intended to produce a standard beyond man's ability and capacity. Indeed, God's Word with its divine measurement and high demand, which far exceeds man's natural capacity, is the same Word that escorts man to God Himself over and over again. It is this principle that we see governing God's relationship with fallen man, both in the Old Testament under the law and in the New Testament under the higher demand of the law revealed in Mathew 5-7. Indeed, man's extremity becomes God's opportunity.
