“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” -Mark 10:45

Serve God by doing common actions in a heavenly spirit, and then, if your daily calling only leaves you cracks and crevices of time, fill them up with holy service. -Charles Spurgeon via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.19.2018

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” -Psalm 103:2

Today you can choose to permit your heart to complain or you can give yourself to consider the amazing catalog of blessings, which you could not have earned or deserved, that are yours by grace. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.18.2018

And of Benjamin he said, “The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.” -Deuteronomy 33:12

Yes, there is no safety like that which comes of dwelling near to God. For His best beloved the Lord can find no surer or safer place. O Lord, let me always abide under Thy shadow, close to Thy wounded side. Nearer and nearer would I come to Thee, my Lord; and when once specially near Thee, I would abide there forever.

What a covering is that which the Lord gives to His chosen! Not a fair roof shall cover him, nor a bomb-proof casement, nor even an angel’s wing, but Jehovah Himself. Nothing can come at us when we are thus covered. This covering the Lord will grant us all the day long, however long the day. Lord, let me abide this day consciously beneath this canopy of love, this pavilion of sovereign power.

Does the third clause mean that the Lord in His temple would dwell among the mountains of Benjamin or that the Lord would be where Benjamin’s burden should be placed, or does it mean that we are borne upon the shoulders of the Eternal? In any case, the Lord is the support and strength of His saints. Lord, let me ever enjoy Thy help, and then my arms will be sufficient for me.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 9.17.2018

“to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.” -Romans 16:27
As children of God, praise should ever be on our lips to the only wise God. Only God’s wisdom is pure. He has worked a plan since the foundation of the world for sinners to have a way to Him. He makes children of darkness to become children of light. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 9.12.2018

“…but you shall love your neighbor as yourself…” -Leviticus 19:18

It’s nearly impossible to love our neighbors if we don’t know our neighbors. And herein lies the tension of our times: We live in such a connected world with such limited or nonexistent connection. Relationships matter. Stories matter. -E. Cho
