Scripture at Sunrise 11.25.2020

“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” -2 Corinthians 12:9-10

When it comes to the Christian life, admitting that you’re weak is not nearly as risky as pretending you’re strong. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.24.2020

“The Lord thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little.” -Deuteronomy 7:22

We are not to expect to win victories for the Lord Jesus by a single blow. Evil principles and practices die hard. In some places it takes years of labor to drive out even one of the many vices which defile the inhabitants. We must carry on the war with all our might, even when favored with little manifest success.

Our business in this world is to conquer it for Jesus. We are not to make compromises but to exterminate evils. We are not to seek popularity but to wage unceasing war with iniquity. Infidelity, popery, drink, impurity, oppression, worldliness, error; these are all to be “put out.”

The Lord our God can alone accomplish this. He works by His faithful servants, and blessed be His name. He promises that He will so work. “Jehovah thy God will put out those nations before thee.” This He will do by degrees that we may learn perseverance, may increase in faith, may earnestly watch, and may avoid carnal security. Let us thank God for a little success and pray for more. Let us never sheathe the sword till the whole land is won for Jesus.

Courage, my heart! Go on little by little, for many littles will make a great whole.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 11.23.2020

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.” -Hebrews 11:23

Parents, God often uses your faith in the lives of your children, raising up leaders in the next generation. You never know how God is going to use your child.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon The Faith of Parentsfrom Hebrews 11:23)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.19.2020

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.” -Proverbs 3:5-6

Every time we disobey, we are saying that we have a better idea of what’s best for us than the One who made us. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.18.2020

“Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in His ways!” -Psalm 119:2-3

The secret to freedom from enslaving patterns of sin is worship. You need worship. You need great worship. You need weeping worship. You need glorious worship. You need to sense God’s greatness and to be moved by it — moved by who God is and what He has done for you. -Tim Keller

Scripture at Sunrise 11.17.2020

“For the Lord will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.” -Psalm 94:14

No, nor will He cast even so much as one of them. Man has his castoffs, but God has none; for His choice is unchangeable, and His love is everlasting. None can find out a single person whom God has forsaken after having revealed Himself savingly to him.

This grand truth is mentioned in the psalm to cheer the heart of the afflicted. The Lord chastens His own; but He never forsakes them. The result of the double work of the law and the rod is our instruction, and the fruit of that instruction is a quieting of spirit, a sobriety of mind, out of which comes rest. The ungodly are let alone till the pit is digged into which they will fall and be taken; but the godly are sent to school to be prepared for their glorious destiny hereafter. Judgment will return and finish its work upon the rebels, but it will equally return to vindicate the sincere and godly. Hence we may bear the rod of chastisement with calm submission; it means not anger, but love.

God may chasten and correct,
But He never can neglect;
May in faithfulness reprove,
But He ne’er can cease to love.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 11.16.2020

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” -Ephesians 2:8-9

It is all of grace that you are saved. It’s not of your works, not of your efforts, or keeping yourself from doing bad things. It’s all because of the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ!

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon Finishing Well By Faithfrom Hebrews 11:20-22)
