One Year Bible KJV

One Year Bible King James Version

 

This is a one year Bible. The Bible is divided into 366 sections. Each section is one day. I you keep up with it and read it every day, by the end of the year you will have read the entire Bible. I have included a “Table of Contents” as part of this book. Each day has a link, and With just 2 clicks from the Table of Contents you can get to any day in the entire book. If you are at a point where there is not a link to a day, you can always click or press the Menu and a pop-up menu will appear in which you can go to the Cover, Table of Contents, or Go to the Beginning. Choosing either of these options to navigate to certain portions of the book. This book is optimized for Text-to-Speech. However, TTS only works for the Kindle Touch, Kindle Keyboard (K3) and Kindle DX. That, however, does not prevent you from enjoying this book. You will just have to read it yourself. Now, as for the Kindle Fire, it has been commonly thought that the Fire does not have TTS. But I have found a way to implement TTS on the Fire. But it is very primitive and tedious and does not work on Kindle Books. The files that it reads have to be in pure text format. If you would like to know how to implement it on the Fire please email me and I will show you. One note of interest, the Kindle Fire was shipped with a TTS engine installed so this leads me to believe that eventually Amazon will implement full TTS at a later date. We shall see.

Weekly Devotional: Gems from Pastor Jim 8/2/2021

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 6:7-8 ““When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered only by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, because your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him.”

Words don’t mean much if they don’t come from the heart. We may pray and pray and pray, but if we aren’t sincerely praying from the heart, we are just making a lot of noise. We may impress other people by our praying, but our praying falls on deaf ears.

There are some people who repeat the same prayers over and over again. Some people don’t know how to pray any other words than what they have been taught. When I was a kid, “Now I lay me down to sleep…..” was a prayer I repeated over and over again. At meal time many will say a simple prayer of thanks that they say every time. Some people will repeat a certain chant they have been taught. It doesn’t matter how many times we may repeat these prayers, if they do not come from a heart connection with God, they are meaningless words that don’t reach the ears of God.

God knows our hearts before we even pray. He knows our needs and wants us to express them in words. He wants to hear the expressions of our hearts, not out mouths. For God, it’s all about relationships. He doesn’t want to be talked at; He wants to be talked to. If you find yourself praying the same prayers over and over again, you need to stop it now. You need to talk to the Lord as you do to your friends. You need to speak from your heart and not just repeat the same things over and over.

The Lord hears and answers the prayers spoken from a sincere heart.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

Verse of the Day and Devotional 7/29/2021

Verse of the Day

July 29th, 2021

Scripture

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” – Matthew 6:34 ESV

Devotion

In many places in the Bible, we are told not to worry, or be anxious, or be fearful about what the future may hold. Indeed, the Apostle Paul said that we shouldn’t be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:6). Apart from the torment they put us through, the trouble with worry, anxiety, and fear is that they are a waste of time. Instead of spending our time dealing with what we have been called to do today, we waste it by worrying and being anxious about how we will deal with tomorrow.

Although there is nothing wrong with making plans for the future, there is a lot wrong with worrying and being anxious about the future. Life in Christ is meant to be lived day by day. Tomorrow is tomorrow and should be dealt with then. Today is today and should be dealt with now. All of us have plenty to do today. Today needs everything we have to give. Worry and anxiety about tomorrow interfere with what is present before us; they add nothing to our purpose in life. Worry and anxiety hold us back in every respect.

Christians have been given the Holy Spirit and He energizes and equips us for everything we have been called to do. One might say that we have been anointed by the Holy Spirit to do whatever it is we have to do. The anointing we have for today, however, is for today- not tomorrow. The anointing for tomorrow will come tomorrow. If we have worry and anxiety about tomorrow, it is a good indication that we have moved on ahead of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We are then operating in the strength of our own power and trying to figure everything out on our own. Consequently, we worry and have anxiety because we have placed the cares and concerns of tomorrow on our own shoulders, instead of relying on the strength and enablement of the Holy Spirit.

God’s grace and anointing are for today. Don’t waste today worrying and being anxious about tomorrow. Cast your anxieties about the future on God, because He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).

Weekly Devotional: Gems from Pastor Jim 7/26/2021

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 6:6 “But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father secretly. Then your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you.”

Jesus is speaking out strongly against showing off our religion. He is making it very clear that a person of genuine faith does not need to promote it or broadcast it. Genuine faith shows naturally through the way we live and speak.

We like to be around people who really know how to pray. There is just something that seems to set them apart from us. We equate how they pray with the godliness of their hearts. What we don’t often consider is that how a person prays doesn’t always tell the true story of their heart. Just like people can imitate faith without being saved, people can imitate prayer without being right with God, or even saved.

Jesus here emphasizes the importance of private prayer. When we pray when no one is around, it is noticed by God. God hears us when we pray from a genuine heart, no matter who may, or may not, hear us when we pray. In fact, there is great value in prayer without words. We can be surrounded by a great host of people and pray without anyone knowing it. The Lord listens to the heart more than He does the words.

Words sometimes simply fail us. There are times when we don’t know what to say or how to say it. But, the Lord knows. When we lift our hearts to Him without words, He hears us and answers our prayers. Reach out to the Lord and He will reach out to you. Don’t pray to be heard by man; pray to be heard by God. If others hear you when you pray and join you as you pray, it is good. It is also good if only you and God hear you when you pray.

Verse of the Day and Devotional 7/22/2021

Send to Kindle

Verse of the Day

July 22nd, 2021

Scripture

We can come to God with no doubts. – 1 John 5:14 ERV

Devotion

The grand finale of the letter by John is that we must trust in God. Our confidence in God must be based on His capacity rather than our own. Our faith in Him must be objective instead of subjective. But why should we trust Him?

We trust Him because He hears us (1 John 5:13-15). Faith brings along confidence. Sometimes our faith can be shaky, but we are called to know, or to be assured, of our salvation. Our faith is not built on our experiences only, but on the fact that we believe in Christ and that we have eternal life. To know means to be aware of the truth of something; to have a belief or faith in something; to regard as true beyond any doubt. We must accept Christ to be what He claims to be; we must accept His power and authority. Have it fixed in your mind that you have eternal life. This faith is based on the fact that God hears us. He hears us in whatever we ask. We pray to Him because we know that He hears us.

We trust Him because He forgives us (v. 16-17). When forgiveness is sought, God is willing to grant it. Sin that is unrepented of is resolute rejection of the true doctrine about Christ – chronic disobedience to God’s commandments and persistent lack of love for fellow Christians. Repentance is the cure to this condition. Only through Christ is able to forgive sin. We trust in God because He forgives us. Our trust in God is strengthened by the fact that God forgives.

We trust in Him because He keeps us. (v. 18-19). In the English Standard Version, it says “everyone who has been born of God” (v. 18) which refers to Christ. Christ protects those born of God like Him. The evil one cannot touch them because they are protected by Him. God keeps those who belong to Him. He causes them to remain in a certain state, position, or activity. He makes them to retain the possession of their inheritance which is eternal life. He is their keeper; and has charge over them. He allows them to remain in their place or their position or maintain their identity with Him. He supplies them with necessities and support. He maintains their safety from injury, harm, or danger. “My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper, the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore” (Psalm 121:2-8 ESV).

We trust in Him because He satisfies (v. 20-21). God satisfies our search for truth and meaning in life. True knowledge of God is a gracious act and gift of God, and it brings satisfaction in life. The true knowledge of God is the assurance that He has come and has given us understanding. Satisfaction in life is the knowledge of Christ, the truth and life. He is the true God and eternal life (v. 20).

Interactive Romans Road

World English Version

by Russell Sherrard

 

Interactive Romans Road WEV

Interactive Roman’s Road World English Version

Long Ago, when the Roman Empire was at the height of its glory, a common saying was “All Roads Lead to Rome.” I want to tell you about a very special road — a road that existed then and still exists now. This road, now almost 2,000 years old, has never led to Rome. Yet, strangely enough, it is called the Romans Road.

This takes the reader to selected passages in the Book of Romans in the Bible to explain the plan of Salvation. This is the ideal way to share the gospel using your Kindle. The reader can also read the entire book of Romans un-interrupted.

Weekly Devotional: Gems from Pastor Jim 7/19/2021

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossMatt. 6:1 “Take care! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired, because then you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.”

It seems like much of the church has gotten pretty careless in this area. With the ready accessibility of mass media, there are so many who want to broadcast for the world to see their good deeds. There is so much self-promotion going on in the church that one has to wonder what is really going on.

We like to be noticed and we want others to be attracted to us. We want others to want to support our endeavors. We want to be the popular church in town. We want others to know what we are doing.

In light of our verse today, I wonder what the Lord thinks about the way we do things. I wonder how many of us do things that go unnoticed. I wonder if the Lord is pleased with our doings or if He has a problem with what we do because of why we do them.

We like to be admired, but if that is what motivates us in what we do, we are in deep trouble with the Lord. The praise of man will be the only reward we get for our labors. And, if we are not careful, feasting on the praise of others may cause us to drift away from the Lord and make it difficult to find our way back.

Whatever you do in the name of Christ, be sure you do it for the Lord’s glory and honor and not your own.
