Scripture at Sunrise 10.23.2018

“Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.” -Psalm 97:11

Righteousness is often costly to the man who keeps to it at all hazards, but in the end it will bear its own expenses and return an infinite profit. A holy life is like sowing seed: much is going out, and apparently it is buried in the soil, never to be gathered up again. We are mistaken when we look for an immediate harvest; but the error is very natural, for it seems impossible to bury light. Yet light is “sown,” says the text. It lies latent: none can see it; it is sown. We are quite sure that it must one day manifest itself.

Full sure are we that the Lord has set a harvest for the sower of light, and they shall reap it, each man for himself. Then shall come their gladness. Sheaves of joy for seeds of light. Their heart was upright before the Lord, though men gave them no credit for it, but even censured them: they were righteous, though those about them denounced them as censorious. They had to wait, as husbandmen wait for the precious fruits of the earth: but the light was sown for them, and gladness was being prepared on their behalf by the Lord of the harvest.

Courage, brothers! We need not be in a hurry. Let us in patience possess our souls, for soon shall our souls possess light and gladness.

Punishment might deter you from doing bad for a little while, but it doesn’t change you. What changes us is when we start seeing Jesus Christ as the all-satisfying One. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?” -Jeremiah 17:9

You are under qualified for the job of master and commander of your own life. -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.17.2018

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” -John 13:34

God’s plan for your relationships is simple, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Are you living inside of His plan? There’s enabling grace that’s yours in Christ Jesus, so you can actually live and love this way.  -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.16.2018

“Because I live, ye shall live also.” -John 14:19

Jesus has made the life of believers in Him as certain as His own. As sure as the Head lives the members live also. If Jesus has not risen from the dead, then are we dead in our sins; but since He has risen, all believers are risen in Him. His death has put away our transgressions and loosed the bonds which held us under the death sentence. His resurrection proves our justification: we are absolved, and mercy saith, “The Lord hath put away thy sin, thou shalt not die.”

Jesus has made the life of His people as eternal as His own. How can they die as long as He lives, seeing they are one with Him? Because He dieth no more, and death hath no more dominion over Him, so they shall no more return to the graves of their old sins but shall live unto the Lord in newness of life. O believer, when, under great temptation, thou fearest that thou shalt one day fall by the hand of the enemy, let this reassure thee. Thou shalt never lose thy spiritual life, for it is hid with Christ in God. Thou dost not doubt the immortality of thy Lord; therefore, do not think that He will let thee die, since thou art one with Him. The argument for thy life is His life, and of that thou canst have no fear; wherefore rest in thy living Lord.
