“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

Knowing every thought and choice you will ever make, Jesus still exchanged His holy blood for your life. May you find hope today in His glorious love. -Shane & Shane via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 2.13.2019

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 8:1

“Satan’s go-to tactic is to break the hold God’s word has on you. He tries to put question marks in your life where God has put periods.” -J.D. Greear

Scripture at Sunrise 2.12.2019

“And the Lord said unto Abraham, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward, for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” -Genesis 13:14-15

A special blessing for a memorable occasion. Abram had settled a family dispute. He had said, “Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between thee and me, for we be brethren”; and hence he received the blessing which belongs to peacemakers. The Lord and giver of peace delights to manifest His grace to those who seek peace and pursue it. If we desire closer communion with God, we must keep closer to the ways of peace.

Abram had behaved very generously to his kinsman, giving him his choice of the land. If we deny ourselves for peace’s sake, the Lord will more than make it up to us. As far as the patriarch can see, he can claim, and we may do the like by faith. Abram had to wait for the actual possession, but the Lord entailed the land upon him and his posterity. Boundless blessings belong to us by covenant gift. All things are ours. When we please the Lord, He makes us to look everywhere and see all things our own, whether things present or things to come, all are ours, and we are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 2.11.2019

And He said to all, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. -Luke 9:23

The call of the cross demands that we deny ourselves daily, that we die to ourselves daily–die to our flesh and the desires of our flesh. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
