Scripture at Sunrise 6.21.2018


He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. -Ecclesiastes 3:11

God’s sense of timing will always confound ours. His grace rarely operates according to our schedule. -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 6.20.2018

“We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin.” -Romans 6:6-7

“If my thirst for joy and meaning and passion are satisfied by Jesus, the power of sin is broken.” -John Piper

Scripture at Sunrise 6.19.2018

Let my heart be sound in Thy statutes: that I be not ashamed. -Psalm 119:80

We may regard this inspired prayer as containing within itself the assurance that those who keep close to the Word of God shall never have cause to be ashamed of doing so.

See, the prayer is for soundness of heart. A sound creed is good, a sound judgment concerning it is better, but a sound heart toward the truth is best of all. We must love the truth, feel the truth, and obey the truth, otherwise we are not truly sound in God’s statutes. Are there many in these evil days who are sound? Oh, that the writer and the reader may be two of this sort!

Many will be ashamed in the last great day, when all disputes will be decided. Then they will see the folly of their inventions and be filled with remorse because of their proud infidelity and willful defiance of the Lord; but he who believed what the Lord taught and did what the Lord commanded will stand forth justified in what he did. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun. Men much slandered and abused shall find their shame turned into glory in that day.

Let us pray the prayer of our text, and we may be sure that its promise will be fulfilled to us. If the Lord makes us sound, He will keep us safe.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 6.18.2018

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. -John 14:5-6
Because sin entered into the world, mankind lost the way to the Father. Christ came into the world to show us the way–He is the way. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
