Scripture at Sunrise 9.20.2017

“For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom He predestined He also called, and those whom He called He also justified, and those whom He justified He also glorified.” -Romans 8:29-30

There are five glorious truths in this passage about what God has done for us. His ultimate purpose in your life is to make you like Jesus.

-excerpts from Steve Wainright’s morning sermon on Romans 8:29-30

Scripture at Sunrise 9.19.2017

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” -Zephaniah 3:17

What a word is this! Jehovah God in the center of His people in all the majesty of His power! This presence alone suffices to inspire us with peace and hope. Treasures of boundless might are stored in our Jehovah, and He dwells in His church; therefore may His people shout for joy.

We not only have His presence, but He is engaged upon His choice work of salvation. “He will save.” He is always saving: He takes His name of Jesus from it. Let us not fear any danger, for He is mighty to save.

Nor is this all. He abides evermore the same, He saves, He finds rest in loving, He will not cease to love. His love gives Him joy. He even finds a theme for song in His beloved. This is exceedingly wonderful. When God wrought creation He did not sing but simply said, “It is very good”; but when He came to redemption, then the sacred Trinity felt a joy to be expressed in song, Think of it, and be astonished! Jehovah Jesus sings a marriage song over His chosen bride. She is to Him His love, His joy, His rest, His song. O Lord Jesus, by Thine immeasurable love to us teach us to love Thee, to rejoice in Thee, and to sing unto Thee our life-psalm.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.18.2017

Sunday Evening | Truth DividesJohn 7:25-31
“So they were seeking to arrest Him, but no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.” -John 7:30

Whenever truth confronts the natural man–the spiritually dead–you will find division. The sword of truth cuts and divides, even in the closest relationships. -excerpts from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 9.13.2017

“Some of the people of Jerusalem therefore said, ‘Is not this the man whom they seek to kill?'” -John 7:25

As a result of the fall, sin has blinded us, made us ignorant, and hard-hearted. The natural man is spiritually dead to the things of God. Our spiritual ignorance produces confusion about who Christ is. The veil can only be lifted by the Holy Spirit with the Word of God when God commands. -excerpts from Anthony Vance’s evening sermon on John 7:25-31

Scripture at Sunrise 9.12.2017

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” -Acts 16:31

This gospel for a man with a sword at his throat is the gospel for me. This would suit me if I were dying, and it is all that I need while I am living. I look away from self, and sin, and all idea of personal merit, and I trust the Lord Jesus as the Savior whom God has given. I believe in Him, I rest on Him, I accept Him to be my all in all. Lord, I am saved, and I shall be saved to all eternity, for I believe in Jesus. Blessed be Thy Name for this. May I daily prove by my life that I am saved from selfishness, and worldliness, and every form of evil.

But those last words about my “house”: Lord, I would not run away with half a promise when Thou dost give a whole one. I beseech Thee, save all my family. Save the nearest and dearest. Convert the children and the grandchildren, if I have any. Be gracious to my servants and all who dwell under my roof or work for me. Thou makest this promise to me personally if I believe in the Lord Jesus; I beseech Thee to do as Thou hast said.

I would go over in my prayer every day the names of all my brothers and sisters, parents, children, friends, relatives, servants, and give Thee no rest till that word is fulfilled, “and thy house.”

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

Scripture at Sunrise 9.11.2017

Sunday Morning | Where is Your Faith?Mark 9:14-29
“Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!'” -Mark 9:24

It’s not how big your faith is, but where your faith is and what it is in. That little bit of belief you have is enough if it is in the right Person.
