“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” -Colossians 2:6-7

Gratitude grows from a seed called grace. If you’re not grateful you might still be trying to earn what God freely gives. -Louie Giglio via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.22.2017

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.” -Jude 20-23

“Every one of us can make a difference. We come into contact with people each and every day. Compassion is what we need to make a difference.”  -excerpt from Dannie Wainright’s 11/15 sermon from Jude 20-23

Scripture at Sunrise 11.21.2017

Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. -Isaiah 45:22

This is a promise of promises. It lies at the foundation of our spiritual life. Salvation comes through a look at Him who is “a just God and a Saviour.” How simple is the direction! “Look unto me.” How reasonable is the requirement! Surely the creature should look to the Creator. We have looked elsewhere long enough; it is time that we look alone to Him who invites our expectation and promises to give us His salvation. Only a look! Will we not look at once? We are to bring nothing in ourselves but to look outward and upward to our Lord on His throne, whither He has gone up from the cross. A look requires no preparation, no violent effort: it needs neither wit nor wisdom, wealth nor strength. All that we need is in the Lord our God, and if we look to Him for everything, that everything shall be ours, and we shall be saved.

Come, far-off ones, look hither! Ye ends of the earth, turn your eyes this way! As from the furthest regions men may see the sun and enjoy his light, so you who lie in death’s borders at the very gates of hell may by a look receive the light of God, the life of heaven, the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and therefore able to save.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 11.20.2017

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

At the root of all sin is a failure to love. Loving God and loving others sums up the whole law. Salvation is God sending His Son to die for your lack of love–either your failure to love God or love others–and giving you a heart to love. –excerpts from Ron Crisp’s Sunday Evening Sermon
