Scripture at Sunrise 10.16.2019

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” -1 Samuel 30:6

For many people, worship is something to attend and be done with as quickly as possible so that they can get on with life. For Christians, worship is life. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.15.2019

“As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.” -John 6:57

We live by virtue of our union with the Son of God. As God-man Mediator, the Lord Jesus lives by the self-existent Father who has sent Him, and in the same manner we live by the Savior who has quickened us. He who is the source of our life is also the sustenance of it. Living is sustained by feeding. We must support the spiritual life by spiritual food, and that spiritual food is the Lord Jesus. Not His life, or death, or offices, or work, or word alone, but Himself, as including all these. On Jesus Himself we feed.

This is set forth to us in the Lord’s Supper, but it is actually enjoyed by us when we meditate upon our Lord, believe in Him with appropriating faith, take Him into ourselves by love, and assimilate Him by the power of the inner life. We know what it is to feed on Jesus, but we cannot speak it or write it. Our wisest course is to practice it and to do so more and more. We are entreated to eat abundantly, and it will be to our infinite profit to do so when Jesus is our meat and our drink.

Lord, I thank Thee that this, which is a necessity of my new life, is also its greatest delight. So, I do at this hour feed on Thee.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 10.14.2019

“For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God…” -Titus 1:5-7a

All the traits of a godly leader flow out of this one: blameless. People are looking at your life. Be a role model. Be blameless. We should strive to be blameless, where if we are accused of something, the charges would not stick.

excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon: “Are You Blameless?

“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.” -1 Peter 4:8

Christians of all people should restore reputations vs destroying reputations, protect a good name vs calling someone a name, and shut down gossip vs feeding gossip. Why? Because of all the junk in us that Jesus lovingly covers. -Scott Sauls via Twitter
