Scripture at Sunrise 07.27.2021

“I will give you the sure mercies of David.” -Acts 13:34

Nothing of man is sure; but everything of God is so. Especially are covenant mercies sure mercies, even as David said “an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and sure.”

We are sure that the Lord meant His mercy. He did not speak mere words: there is substance and truth in every one of His promises. His mercies are mercies indeed. Even if a promise seems as if it must drop through by reason of death, yet it never shall, for the good Lord will make good His word.

We are sure that the Lord will bestow promised mercies on all His covenanted ones. They shall come in due course to all the chosen of the Lord. They are sure to all the seed, from the least of them unto the greatest of them. We are sure that the Lord will continue His mercies to His own people. He does not give and take. What He has granted us is the token of much more. That which we have not yet received is as sure as that which has already come; therefore, let us wait before the Lord and be still. There is no justifiable reason for the least doubt. God’s love, and word, and faithfulness are sure. Many things are questionable, but of the Lord we sing—

For his mercies shall endure

Ever faithful, ever sure.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 07.26.2021

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men…” -Colossians 3:23

Be the best that you can be at what you do. Why? Because you represent Jesus Christ. -Pastor Josh Wilson (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon “Strengthening Our Families #6: Biblical Manhood – Work” from Genesis 2:15)

Scripture at Sunrise 07.22.2021

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” -1 Peter 2:9-10

“The highway of holiness is paved by the Son of God, marked by the word of God, and fueled by the grace of God.” -Steven Lawson via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 07.21.2021

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.” -Psalm 68:19

“Don’t push yourself into the future and forfeit the day’s joy over an anticipated tomorrow that may never happen.” -John MacArthur

Scripture at Sunrise 07.20.2021

“Unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” -Hebrews 9:28

This is our hope. He to whom we have already looked as coming once to bear the sins of many will have another manifestation to the sons of men; this is a happy prospect in itself. But that second appearing has certain peculiar marks which glorify it exceedingly.

Our Lord will have ended the business of sin. He has so taken it away from His people and so effectually borne its penalty that He will have nothing to do with it at His second coming. He will present no sin offering, for He will have utterly put sin away.

Our Lord will then complete the salvation of His people. They will be finally and perfectly saved and will in every respect enjoy the fullness of that salvation. He comes not to bear the result of our transgressions but to bring the result of His obedience; not to remove our condemnation but to perfect our salvation.

Our Lord thus appears only to those who look for Him. He will not be seen in this character by men whose eyes are blinded with self and sin. To them He will be a terrible Judge and nothing more. We must first look to Him and then look for Him; and in both cases our look shall be life.

Scripture at Sunrise 07.19.2021

“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” -Proverbs 13:20

Most young people are mostly influenced by their peers rather than those who are older than them. Kids need adults. They need guidance. Children need the counsel of godly older people. -Pastor Josh Wilson (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon “Strengthening Our Families #5: Biblical Manhood” from Proverbs 13:20)
