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

Scripture at Sunrise 2.13.2018

“Blessed shalt thou be in the field.” -Deuteronomy 28:3

So was Isaac blessed when he walked therein at eventide to meditate. How often has the Lord met us when we have been alone! The hedges and the trees can bear witness to our joy. We look for such blessedness again.

So was Boaz blessed when he reaped his harvest, and his workmen met him with benedictions. May the Lord prosper all who drive the plow! Every farmer may urge this promise with God, if indeed he obeys the voice of the Lord God.

We go to the field to labor as father Adam did; and since the curse fell on the soil through the sin of Adam the first, it is a great comfort to find a blessing through Adam the second,

We go to the field for exercise, and we are happy in the belief that the Lord will bless that exercise and give us health, which we will use to His glory.

We go to the field to study nature, and there is nothing in a knowledge of the visible creation which may not be sanctified to the highest uses by the divine benediction.

We have at last to go to the field to bury our dead; yea, others will in their turn take us to God’s acre in the field. But we are blessed, whether weeping at the tomb or sleeping in it.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 2.12.2018

“For the gifts and the calling of God irrevocable.”-Romans 11:29

God cuts the new covenant and it is unconditional. If God does it, He keeps it. If we do it, we can break it. He has called us, predetermined our end, justified, and glorified us. How could you have a condition based on what God has already done? He would have to change His mind and the God we serve doesn’t change. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
