Scripture at Sunrise 01.05.2023

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” -John 10:27

“It is not for the flock of sheep to know the pasture the Shepherd has in mind. It is for them simply to follow Him.” -Elisabeth Elliot via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 01.04.2023

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for He has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.'” -Hebrews 13:5

Safety and peace are not found in being removed from circumstances, rather safety and peace are found in having fellowship and walking hand-in-hand with the Lord through all circumstances. -Associate Pastor Josh Wilson (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon “Great is Thy Faithfulness” from Lamentations 3:22-29)

Scripture at Sunrise 01.03.2023

“The land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it.” -Genesis 28:13

No promise is of private interpretation: it belongs not to one saint but to all believers. If, my brother, thou canst in faith lie down upon a promise and take thy rest thereon, it is thine. Where Jacob “lighted” and tarried and rested, there he took possession. Stretching his weary length upon the ground, with the stones of that place for his pillows, he little fancied that he was thus entering into ownership of the land; yet so it was. He saw in his dream that wondrous ladder which for all true believers unites earth and heaven, and surely where the foot of the ladder stood he must have a right to the soil, for otherwise he could not reach the divine stairway. All the promises of God are “Yea” and “Amen” in Christ Jesus, and as He is ours, every promise is ours if we will but lie down upon it in restful faith.

Come, weary one, use thy Lord’s words as thy pillows, Lie down in peace. Dream only of Him. Jesus is thy ladder of light. See the angels coming and going upon Him between thy soul and thy God, and be sure that the promise is thine own God-given portion and that it will not be robbery for thee to take it to thyself, as spoken specially to thee.

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

Summing Up Sunday 01.02.2023

“I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven for His Name’s sake.” -1 John 2:12

Our forgiveness is based on His Name, not our works.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “A Word of Encouragement” from 1 John 2:12-14)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.30.2022

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous…” -1 John 2:1

A child of God stands before the Father. Christ pleads our case before Him. Everyone He represents is guilty. He pleads with the Father based on His payment for our sin. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Do Not Sin” from 1 John 2:1-2)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.29.2022

“He that believeth shall not make haste.” -Isaiah 28:16

He shall make haste to keep the Lord’s commandments; but he shall not make haste in any impatient or improper sense.

He shall not haste to run away, for he shall not be overcome with the fear which causes panic. When others are flying hither and thither as if their wits had failed them, the believer shall be quiet, calm, and deliberate, and so shall be able to act wisely in the hour of trial.

He shall not haste in his expectations, craving his good things at once and on the spot, but he will wait God’s time. Some are in a desperate hurry to have the bird in the hand, for they regard the Lord’s promise as a bird in the bush, not likely to be theirs. Believers know how to wait.

He shall not haste by plunging into wrong or questionable action. Unbelief must be doing something, and thus it works its own undoing; but faith makes no more haste than good speed, and thus it is not forced to go back sorrowfully by the way which it followed heedlessly.

How is it with me? Am I believing, and am I therefore keeping to the believer’s pace, which is walking with God? Peace, fluttering spirit! Oh, rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him! Heart, see that thou do this at once!

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

Summing Up Sunday 11.28.2022

“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.” -Psalm 42:5

Sometimes we get hopeless because we’re looking for hope in all the wrong places. Hope is only found in Christ. You will never be satisfied until your desire is for God and God alone.

-Associate Pastor Josh Wilson (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon “Depressed & Discouraged” from Psalm 42)

For the Glory of God
