Scripture at Sunrise 2.21.2018

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” -Hebrews 10:24-25

There are rare Christians whose very presence incites others to be better Christians. I want to be that rare Christian. -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 2.20.2018

“The Lord shall guide thee continually.” -Isaiah 58:11

What aileth thee? Hast thou lost thy way? Art thou entangled in a dark wood and canst thou not find thy paths? Stand still, and see the salvation of God. He knows the way, and He will direct thee in it if thou cry unto Him.

Every day brings its own perplexity. How sweet to feel that the guidance of the Lord is continual! If we choose our own way or consult with flesh and blood we cast ok the Lord’s guidance; but if we abstain from self-will, then He will direct every step of our road, every hour of the day, and every day of the year, and every year of our life. If we will but be guided, we shall be guided. If we will commit our way unto the Lord, He will direct our course so that we shall not lose ourselves.

But note to whom this promise is made. Read the previous verse: “If thou draw out thy soul to the hungry.” We must feel for others and give them, not a few dry crusts, but such things as we ourselves would wish to receive. If we show a tender care for our fellow-creatures in the hour of their need, then will the Lord attend to our necessities and make Himself our continual Guide. Jesus is the Leader, not of misers, nor of those who oppress the poor, but of the kind and tenderhearted. Such persons are pilgrims who shall never miss their way.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.19.2018

For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He may have mercy on all.“-Romans 11:30-32
Of all the attributes of God, mercy is one of the crowning attributes. God uses even disobedience to display His mercy, whereby He gets all the more glory. Mercy requires sinfulness or shortcomings. We all stand in need of the mercy of God. If God were not merciful, none of us would be standing here today. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Marriage Seminar – “What Did You Expect?” with Paul Tripp
Saturday, March 3 & Saturday, March 17 @ 2:00 p.m. at the Wainrights’ Home – (two 2-hour sessions)
“Somehow, someway, every marriage will become a struggle. If you want to enjoy a beautiful, life-long relationship, you will need more than romance. You will need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. According to best-selling author and marriage expert Dr. Paul David Tripp, you need realistic expectations, and you need radical commitments. Most importantly, you need grace.”

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” -Philippians 2:12-13
The power for the Christian life does not come from the question: what would Jesus do? But, rather, from the question: what has Jesus already done? -Spurgeon via Twitter
