Scripture at Sunrise 10.18.2017

“I am speaking the truth in Christ–I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit–that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh.” -Romans 9:1-3

When was the last time you wept over someone who is lost? –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon on Romans 9:1-3

Scripture at Sunrise 10.17.2017

“He that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” -Proverbs 13:13

Holy awe of God’s Word is at a great discount. Men think themselves wiser than the Word of the Lord and sit in judgment upon it. “So did not I, because of the fear of God.” We accept the inspired Book as infallible and prove our esteem by our obedience. We have no terror of the Word, but we have a filial awe of it. We are not in fear of its penalties because we have a fear of its commands.

This holy fear of the commandment produces the restfulness of humility, which is far sweeter than the recklessness of pride. It becomes a guide to us in our movements: a drag when we are going downhill and a stimulus when we are climbing it. Preserved from evil and led into righteousness by our reverence of the command, we gain a quiet conscience, which is a well of wine; a sense of freedom from responsibility, which is as life from the dead; and a confidence of pleasing God, which is heaven below. The ungodly may ridicule our deep reverence for the Word of the Lord; but what of that? The prize of our high calling is a sufficient consolation for us. The rewards of obedience make us scorn the scorning of the scorner.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 10.16.2017

“On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.'” -John 7:37

Jesus invites us to come to Him–the source and solution, the well and the water–for our thirst. No matter your story, Christ is able to quench your soul-thirst. -excerpts from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:19

Whatever you have, take it and use it and let God provide the rest. God is willing to bless and His blessings are always greater than what we can give. He knows just what you need. –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon on 2 Kings 4
