Scripture at Sunrise 10.07.2021

“The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” -Luke 6:45

“The things that are closest to our hearts are the things we talk about, and if God is close to your heart, you will talk about Him.” -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 10.05.2021

“And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the Lord, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.” -Micah 5:7

If this be true of the literal Israel, much more is it true of the spiritual Israel, the believing people of God. When saints are what they should be, they are an incalculable blessing to those among whom they are scattered.

They are as the dew; for in a quiet, unobtrusive manner they refresh those around them. Silently but effectually they minister to the life, growth, and joy of those who dwell with them. Coming fresh from heaven, glistening like diamonds in the sun, gracious men and women attend to the feeble and insignificant till each blade of grass has its own drop of dew. Little as individuals, they are, when united, all-sufficient for the purposes of love which the Lord fulfills through them. Dew drops accomplish the refreshing of broad acres. Lord, make us like the dew!

Godly people are as showers which come at God’s bidding without man’s leave and license. They work for God whether men desire it or not; they no more ask human permission than the rain does. Lord, make us thus boldly prompt and free in Thy service wherever our lot is cast.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 09.23.2021

“For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:7-8

If the devil tells you that you are unworthy, just smile and say, “Is that so? Well, devil, that just makes me a candidate for the grace of God, because if I were worthy, then the grace of God couldn’t reach me, but the fact that I’m unworthy is enough for me.” -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 09.22.2021

“For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.” -2 Corinthians 5:14-15

“A great help during temptation is to remember that to sin is more than just breaking a rule; it is to grieve the Person Who loves us beyond measure.” – Paul Washer

Scripture at Sunrise 09.21.2021

“Knowing that tribulation worketh patience.” -Romans 5:3

This is a promise in essence if not in form. We have need of patience, and here we see the way of getting it. It is only by enduring that we learn to endure, even as by swimming men learn to swim. You could not learn that art on dry land, nor learn patience without trouble. Is it not worth while to suffer tribulation for the sake of gaining that beautiful equanimity of mind which quietly acquiesces in all the will of God?

Yet our text sets forth a singular fact, which is not according to nature but is supernatural. Tribulation in and of itself worketh petulance, unbelief, and rebellion. It is only by the sacred alchemy of grace that it is made to work in us patience. We do not thresh the wheat to lay the dust: yet the Rail of tribulation does this upon God’s floor. We do not toss a man about in order to give him rest, and yet so the Lord dealeth with His children. Truly this is not the manner of man but greatly redounds to the glory of our all-wise God.

Oh, for grace to let my trials bless me! Why should I wish to stay their gracious operation? Lord, I ask Thee to remove my affliction, but I beseech Thee ten times more to remove my impatience. Precious Lord Jesus, with Thy cross engrave the image of Thy patience on my heart. 

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 09.20.2021

“Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” -James 4:11-12

Words can kill and can be very destructive. It’s easy to put other people down, but when you speak against someone, you’re putting yourself above God’s law. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Putting Others Down” from James 4:11-12)

“It was God’s Word that made us; is it any wonder that His Word should sustain us?” -Charles H. Spurgeon
