Is Your Religion a Daily Religion?

Is Your Religion a Daily Religion? | Oak Grove Church of Christ

The Daily Religion of the 1st Century Church

The Church Met Daily in One Accord

  • Acts 2:42
  • Acts 5:42

Do you have a Sunday religion, but not a daily religion?

The religion of Jesus Christ is more than a Sunday only religion.

  • Exodus 29:28-39
  • Exodus 30:7,8
  • Romans 15:4
  • 1 Peter 2:5
  • Romans 12:1

Our Religion Should be Daily

Daily Prayer
  • Exodus 30:7,8
  • Revelation 5:8
  • Revelation 8:3
  • Philippians 4:6
  • Luke 11:3
  • Psalm 55:17
  • Psalm 88:9

If our religion is to be a daily religion we need to daily be involved in prayer. Prayer is how we express ourselves to God.

Daily Bible Study
  • John 5:39
  • 2 Timothy 2:15
  • Acts 17:11

We should be like the Bereans and daily search the scriptures to see if what is being taught is truth. We can not grow in grace and our knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18┬á ) without a daily study of God’s word.

Daily Evangelism

The real crux of Christianity is teaching it to others.

  • Mark 16:15,16
  • Matthew 26:55
  • Acts 2:46
  • Acts 8:1,4
  • Matthew 4
  • Acts 20:31

Why not talk about the Lord? Why not have a tract or something to hand out? What a noble example this (Paul’s example in Acts 20:31) is for all of us today, to enlist the great work of personal evangelism.

Daily Exhortation

Exhortation is encouragement from the word of God.

  • Hebrews 3:13
  • Philippians 4:4,11
  • Galatians 6:1
  • Romans 15:1
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:14

Too often those weak in the faith are left to sink or swim. But, we are supposed to be our brother’s keeper. We are to exhort one another daily.

Daily Administration

We are to daily be involved in helping others.

  • Acts 6:1
  • Galatians 2:10
  • James 1:27
  • 1 John 3:17,18
  • James 2:16

Our religions should not be one of mere profession but, rather, it should be one of action. We are to be involved daily to seeing to the needs of others, our brethren, and to everyone else we are around, as much as is possible, as much as we are able.

Daily Cross Bearing
  • Luke 9:23
  • Hebrews 2:10
  • 2 Timothy 3:12
  • Matthew 10:37

If we hope to follow after Jesus we must bear our cross daily.

Daily Results

An everyday religion will bring forth daily results.

  • Acts 2:42
  • Acts 16:5
  • Romans 1:16

When people see us, and see the way we live when we are actively involved in evangelism. We’re going to bring others to Christ. We can add to the church every single day.

 

Our religion ought not to be so flimsy that it couldn’t withstand everyday wear and tear. Men aren’t going to be saved by sermons on Sundays unless they are being saved on all the other days of the week by the work and service that is rendered in the Master’s call.

What kind of religion is yours? Is it a daily religion?
