Scripture at Sunrise 10.21.2020

“Then spake Haggai the LORD’S messenger in the LORD’S message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD.” -Haggai 1:13

In life, you will never be satisfied if all you’re doing is seeking your own way. The only One who can fill that void in your life is Christ. He is the only One who can fill the desires and longings you have. -Pastor Steve Wainright, excerpt from Wednesday Evening Sermon “Consider Your Ways”

Scripture at Sunrise 10.20.2020

“He shall save his people from their sins.” -Matthew 1:21
Lord, save me from my sins. By the name of Jesus I am encouraged thus to pray. Save me from my past sins, that the habit of them may not hold me captive. Save me from my constitutional sins, that I may not be the slave of my own weaknesses. Save me from the sins which are continually under my eye that I may not lose my horror of them. Save me from secret sins; sins unperceived by me from my want of light. Save me from sudden and surprising sins: let me not be carried off my feet by a rush of temptation. Save me, Lord, from every sin. Let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Thou alone canst do this. I cannot snap my own chains or slay my own enemies. Thou knowest temptation, for Thou wast tempted. Thou knowest sin, for Thou didst bear the weight of it. Thou knowest how to succor me in my hour of conflict; Thou canst save me from sinning and save me when I have sinned. It is promised in Thy very name that Thou wilt do this, and I pray Thee let me this day verify the prophecy. Let me not give way to temper, or pride, or despondency, or any form of evil; but do Thou save me unto holiness of life, that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me abundantly.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 10.19.2020

“And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.” -2 Chronicles 25:2

Amaziah’s heart was not right. He had godly actions, he did what was right in God’s sight, but his heart (attitude) was not devoted to God.

Service to the Lord our God comes from a heart of love to the Lord our God. The more you love Him, the more you desire to serve Him. If you serve God out of obligation, you will end up burnt out in serving Him.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 25:1-28 – “Right Thing, Wrong Heart“)

Scripture AT SUNSET 10.12.2020

 “By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.” -Hebrews 11:5-6

A life of faith is a consistent, daily, moment-by-moment walk with Jesus Christ. If you don’t have faith, there is no chance you can please God.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 11:5-6 – “Walking with God“)

Scripture at Sunrise 10.8.2020

“Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations…” -Deuteronomy 7:9

Every human relationship is marked by broken promises, weakness and failure, but God’s promises are sure, he is never weak and will never fail us.

-Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.7.2020

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus…” -Romans 3:23-24

Do you think your sin is bad? It’s worse than you think. Do you think God’s grace is amazing? It’s better than you think. -Garrett Kell via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.6.2020

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth.” -John 16:13

Truth is like a vast cavern into which we desire to enter, but we are not able to traverse it alone. At the entrance it is clear and bright; but if we would go further and explore its innermost recesses, we must have a guide, or we shall lose ourselves. The Holy Spirit, who knows all truth perfectly, is the appointed guide of all true believers, and He conducts them as they are able to bear it, from one inner chamber to another, so that they behold the deep things of God, and His secret is made plain to them.

What a promise is this for the humbly inquiring mind! We desire to know the truth and to enter into it. We are conscious of our own aptness to err, and we feel the urgent need of a guide. We rejoice that the Holy Spirit is come and abides among us. He condescends to act as a guide to us, and we gladly accept His leadership. “All truth” we wish to learn, that we may not be one-sided and out of balance. We would not be willingly ignorant of any part of revelation lest thereby we should miss blessing or incur sin. The Spirit of God has come that He may guide us into all truth: let us with obedient hearts hearken to His words and follow His lead.

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

Scripture AT SUNRISE 10.5.2020

“By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.” -Hebrews 11:4

Abel’s life still speaks. What about your life? When you’ve passed from this world, will your life still speak to those who knew you?

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 11:4 – “The Faith of Abel“)
