Scripture at Sunrise 1.21.2020

The Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord.” -Exodus 7:5

The ungodly world is hard to teach. Egypt does not know Jehovah and therefore dares to set up its idols and even ventures to ask, “Who is the Lord?” Yet the Lord means to break proud hearts, whether they will or not. When His judgments thunder over their heads, darken their skies, destroy their harvests, and slay their sons, they begin to discern somewhat of Jehovah’s power. There will yet be such things done in the earth as shall bring skeptics to their knees. Let us not be dismayed because of their blasphemies, for the Lord can take care of His own name, and He will do so in a very effectual manner.

The salvation of His own people was another potent means of making Egypt know that the God of Israel was Jehovah, the living and true God. No Israelite died by any one of the ten plagues. None of the chosen seed were drowned in the Red Sea. Even so, the salvation of the elect and the sure glorification of all true believers will make the most obstinate of God’s enemies acknowledge that Jehovah, He is the God.

Oh, that His convincing power would go forth by His Holy Spirit in the preaching of the gospel, till all nations shall bow at the name of Jesus and call Him Lord!

[from Morning & Evening by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture after Sunrise 1.20.2020

“For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.” -Philemon 7

Do people sense the goodness and greatness and presence of God when you come around? Does your life bring joy and comfort to other people’s lives? Does it bring consolation (rest) to others? Only through Christ can this happen.

-Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday morning sermon from Philemon 4-7 — A Christian Refresher)

ThursdayTheologicalTweet

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” -Romans 8:28

God faithfully delivers to us what He knows is good, not always what we want, but what is good for accomplishing His plan for us, in us and through us. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 1.15.2020

“For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him.” -Colossians 1:16

How is God glorified by a rose that He plants in a forest so remote that no man or angel will ever see it? He is glorified because He sees it. How is God glorified by those servants who are hidden from all notoriety and fame? Because He sees them, knows their way, and rejoices. -Paul Washer

Scripture at Sunrise 1.14.2020

Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” -Matthew 11:28

We who are saved find rest in Jesus. Those who are not saved will receive rest if they come to Him, for here He promises to “give” it. Nothing can be freer than a gift; let us gladly accept what He gladly gives. You are not to buy it, nor to borrow it, but to receive it as a gift. You labor under the lash of ambition, covetousness, lust, or anxiety: He will set you free from this iron bondage and give you rest. You are “laden,” yes, “heavy laden” with sin, fear, care, remorse, fear of death; but if you come to Him He will unload you. He carried the crushing mass of our sin that we might no longer carry it. He made Himself the great Burden-bearer, that every laden one might cease from bowing down under the enormous pressure.

Jesus gives rest. It is so. Will you believe it? Will you put it to the test? Will you do so at once? Come to Jesus by quitting every other hope, by thinking of Him, believing God’s testimony about Him, and trusting everything with Him. If you thus come to Him the rest which He will give you will be deep, safe, holy, and everlasting. He gives a rest which develops into heaven, and He gives it this day to all who come to Him.

[from Morning & Evening by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 1.13.2020

“Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus…” -Philemon 1

Don’t lose sight of Christ in control of your life. Though imprisoned by Caesar, Paul saw himself as a witness to the household of Caesar because the Gospel cannot be bound.

-Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday morning sermon from Philemon 1:1-3Prisoner of Jesus Christ)
