Scripture at Sunrise 6.21.2017

“Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I lay My vengeance upon them.” -Ezekiel 25:17
Israel had many godless neighbors and was not a witness like they should have been. Likewise, when we compromise and become tolerant of sin, our witness has no weight. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.20.2017

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” -Psalm 23:4

Sweet are these words in describing a deathbed assurance. How many have repeated them in their last hours with intense delight!

But the verse is equally applicable to agonies of spirit in the midst of life. Some of us, like Paul, die daily through a tendency to gloom of soul. Bunyan puts the Valley of the Shadow of Death far earlier in the pilgrimage than the river which rolls at the foot of the celestial hills. We have some of us traversed the dark and dreadful defile of “the shadow of death” several times, and we can bear witness that the Lord alone enabled us to bear up amid its wild thought, its mysterious horrors, its terrible depressions. The Lord has sustained us and kept us above all real fear of evil, even when our spirit has been overwhelmed. We have been pressed and oppressed, but yet we have lived, for we have felt the presence of the Great Shepherd and have been confident that His crook would prevent the foe from giving us any deadly wound.

Should the present time be one darkened by the raven wings of a great sorrow, let us glorify God by a peaceful trust in Him.

Scripture at Sunrise 6.19.2017

Sunday Morning | Overcoming SinRomans 8:3-4
“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” -Romans 8:3-4

The key to victory over sin is a life that is yielded to Christ each and every moment. You have to grip the one truth that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus–this is how you grow and walk in holiness. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.14.2017

Scripture at Sunrise 6.13.2017

“I, the LORD, am its keeper; every moment I water it. Lest anyone punish it, I keep it night and day… -Isaiah 27:3

When the Lord Himself speaks in His own proper person rather than through a prophet, the word has a peculiar weight to believing minds. It is Jehovah Himself who is the keeper of His own vineyard; He does not trust it to any other, but He makes it His own personal care. Are they not well kept whom God Himself keeps?

We are to receive gracious watering, not only every day and every hour “but every moment.” How we ought to grow! How fresh and fruitful every plant should be! What rich clusters the vines should bear!

But disturbers come; little foxes and the boar. Therefore, the Lord Himself is our Guardian, and that at all hours, both “night and day.” What, then, can harm us? Why are we afraid! He tends, He waters, He guards; what more do we need?

Twice in this verse the Lord says, “I will.” What truth, what power, what love, what immutability we find in the great “I will” of Jehovah! Who can resist His will? If He says “I will,” what room is there for doubt? With an “I will” of God we can face all the hosts of sin, death, and hell. O Lord, since Thou sayest, “I will keep thee,” I reply, “I will praise Thee!”

Scripture at Sunrise 6.12.2017

Sunday Morning | No CondemnationRomans 8:1-2
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 7:24-8:1

Right now, if you are in Christ, there is no condemnation over you. The wrath of God has been appeased by Christ. This does not say that there is no cause for condemnation, but that there is no condemnation because of what Christ has done for us. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon
