Scripture at Sunrise 11.27.2014

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!” -Psalm 118:1

We give thanks to God not because of how we feel, but because of who He is. -Ann Voskamp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.26.2014

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Acts 20:35

“Doing good is a fine remedy for fretting. There is a joy in holy activity which drives away the rust of discontent.” Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 11.25.2014

Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain; and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. -Zechariah 4:7

At this hour a mountain of difficulty, distress, or necessity may be in our way, and natural reason sees no path over it, or through it, or round it. Let faith come in, and straightway the mountain disappears and becomes a plain. But faith must first hear the word of the Lord–“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” This grand truth is a prime necessity for meeting the insurmountable trials of life.

I see that I can do nothing and that all reliance on man is vanity. “Not by might.” I see that no visible means can be relied on, but the force is in the invisible Spirit. God alone must work, and men and means must be nothing accounted of. If it be so that the Almighty God takes up the concerns of His people, then great mountains are nothing. He can remove worlds as boys toss balls about or drive them with their foot. This power He can lend to me. If the Lord bids me move an Alp I can do it through His Name. It may be a great mountain, but even before my feebleness it shall become a plain; for the Lord hath said it. What can I be afraid of with God on my side?

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

Scripture at Sunrise 11.24.2014

Sunday Morning| Pastor Steve Wainright | Galatians 2:1-10 | Gospel of Grace (Audio)
” Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.” -Galatians 2:10

Remember to pass the plate for the poor. Pray for them. Talk to them. Give to them. Help them in their need. There is a spiritual picture in this. God reached out to you when you were poor.

Scripture at Sunrise 11.20.2014

It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for He gives to His beloved sleep. -Psalm 127:2

Sleep is a parable that God is God and we are mere men. -John Piper via Desiring God’s Twitter
