Scripture at Sunrise 2.28.2013

“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…” -Romans 8:3

The covenant maker became the covenant keeper and died for covenant breakers. #gospel #missions –Matt Smethurst

Scripture at Sunrise 2.27.2013

“Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16

Be the kind of light that makes people squint so hard they don’t even see you anymore. -Bob Goff

Scripture at Sunrise 2.26.2013

“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” -John 15:7

Note well that we must hear Jesus speak if we expect Him to hear us speak. If we have no ear for Christ, He will have no ear for us. In proportion as we hear we shall be heard.

Moreover, what is heard must remain, must live in us, and must abide in our character as a force and a power. We must receive the truths which Jesus taught, the precepts which He issued, and the movements of His Spirit within us; or we shall have no power at the Mercy Seat.

Suppose our Lord’s words to be received and to abide in us, what a boundless field of privilege is opened up to us! We are to have our will in prayer, because we have already surrendered our will to the Lord’s command. Thus are Elijahs trained to handle the keys of heaven and lock or loose the clouds. One such man is worth a thousand common Christians. Do we humbly desire to be intercessors for the church and the world, and like Luther to be able to have what we will of the Lord? Then we must bow our ear to the voice of the Well-beloved, treasure up His words, and carefully obey them. He has need to “hearken diligently” who would pray effectually.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 2.25.2013

“Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” -Luke 10:20

The grace of God brings joy to the child of God–a deep-rooted joy that can’t be taken from you. Don’t base your joy on that which is uncertain. Base it on the fact that your name is written in Heaven and it can’t be erased!
