Daily Portion

I. "Give us this day our daily bread.." Matt. 6:11

We need physical provisions: food, shelter, clothes, jobs, companions, etc.

II. "So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart." Acts2:46

We need fellowship and communion with others.

III. Jesus said, "I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple..." Matt.26:55

Jesus speaks to us every day: teaching, correcting encouraging.

IV. The Bereans "searched the Scriptures daily." Acts 17:11

The provision of the Word.

(These first three things show God's daily supply.)

V. "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." Luke 9:23

Give up something of self and take on something given to you by the Lord on a daily basis.

VI. "I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Jesus our Lord, I die daily." I Cor. 15:31

Lay life down to desires and if need be to death, every day.

(The last two things are a daily sacrifice.)

In our daily supply, we get and give some away. In sacrifice, we give and get His life.

  1. Everyone wants everything fast and easy nowadays. Thank you for the reminder that it is a sacrifice at times. :O)
