Scripture at Sunrise 8.25.2016

“By this we know love, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” -1 John 3:16-18

Difficult people are often hiding secret suffering. Before you drop the hammer, try an open heart and a helping hand. -Kevin DeYoung via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.24.2016

“All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” -Romans 3:12
Sin has deeply affected every human being on the face of this earth with no exceptions. All have turned aside, all want to do their own thing. Even the “good” we do in life is still tainted with sin. No one does good, not even one. The good news is that God does not call the righteous to repentance, but the sinner. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 8.23.2016

“I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me.” -Proverbs 8:17

Wisdom loves her lovers and seeks her seekers. He is already wise who seeks to be wise, and he has almost found wisdom who diligently seeks her. What is true of wisdom in general is specially true of wisdom embodied in our Lord Jesus. Him we are to love and to seek, and in return we shall enjoy His love and find Himself.

Our business is to seek Jesus early in life. Happy are the young whose morning is spent with Jesus! It is never too soon to seek the Lord Jesus. Early seekers make certain finders. We should seek Him early by diligence. Thriving tradesmen are early risers, and thriving saints seek Jesus eagerly. Those who find Jesus to their enrichment give their hearts to seeking Him. We must seek Him first, and thus earliest. Above all things Jesus. Jesus first and nothing else even as a bad second.

The blessing is that He will be found. He reveals Himself more and more clearly to our search…. Happy men who seek One who, when He is found, remains with them forever, a treasure growingly precious to their hearts and understandings.

Lord Jesus, l have found Thee; be found of me to an unutterable degree of joyous satisfaction.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.18.2016

“Cast your burden on the LORD, and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved.” -Psalm 55:22

The burdens of this day aren’t bigger than the shoulders of our God. -Scotty Smith via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.17.2016

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. -John 3:16-17

The way God planned to save us shows us His love. It was not a plan for law-keepers or self-changers, but a plan for believers: those who believe in the Son of God who accomplished all of the work. –excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 8.16.2016

“Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.” -Proverbs 28:13

Here is the way of mercy for a guilty and repenting sinner. He must cease from the habit of covering sin. This is attempted by falsehood, which denies sin; by hypocrisy, which conceals it; by boasting, which justifies it; and by loud profession, which tries to make amends for it.

The sinner’s business is to confess and forsake. The two must go together. Confession must be honestly made to the Lord Himself, and it must include within itself acknowledgment of the wrong, sense of its evil, and abhorrence of it. We must not throw the fault upon others, nor blame circumstances, nor plead natural weakness. We must make a clean breast of it and plead guilty to the indictment. There can be no mercy till this is done.

Furthermore, we must forsake the evil; having owned our fault, we must disown all present and future intent to abide in it. We cannot remain in rebellion and yet dwell with the King’s majesty. The habit of evil must be quitted, together with all places, companions, pursuits, and books which might lead us astray. Not for confession, nor for reformation, but in connection with them we find pardon by faith in the blood of Jesus.
