Scripture at Sunrise 2.26.2015

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” -Colossians 3:23

Jesus came into this world not as a philosopher or a general but as a carpenter. All work matters to God. -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 2.25.2015

“But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

The Bible is one long story of God meeting our rebellion with His rescue, our sin with His salvation, our guilt with His grace. #OneWayLove -Tullian Tchividjian via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 2.24.2015

“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.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.23.2015

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | He’s My Personal Savior | 2 Samuel 22:1-18
He said, “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; You save me from violence. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” -2 Samuel 22:2-4

The more you walk with the Lord, the more you see His hand at work in your everyday life. When you think about how God has delivered you, you can’t help but praise.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.19.2015

“For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” -2 Corinthians 5:21

Scripture at Sunrise 2.18.2015

Scripture at Sunrise 2.17.2015

“But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” -2 Chronicles 15:7

God had done great things for King Asa and Judah, but yet they were a feeble folk. Their feet were very tottering in the ways of the Lord, and their hearts very hesitating, so that they had to be warned that the Lord would be with them while they were with Him, but that if they forsook Him He would leave them. They were also reminded of the sister kingdom, how ill it fared in its rebellion and how the Lord was gracious to it when repentance was shown. The Lord’s design was to confirm them in His way and make them strong in righteousness. So ought it to be with us. God deserves to be served with all the energy of which we are capable.

If the service of God is worth anything, it is worth everything. We shall find our best reward in the Lord’s work if we do it with determined diligence. Our labor is not in vain in the Lord, and we know it. Halfhearted work will bring no reward; but when we throw our whole soul into the cause, we shall see prosperity. This text was sent to the author of these notes in a day of terrible storm, and it suggested to him to put on all steam, with the assurance of reaching port in safety with a glorious freight.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.16.2015

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | Famine & Giants | 2 Samuel 21
“…And David grew weary. And Ishbi-benob, one of the descendants of the giants, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of bronze, and who was armed with a new sword, thought to kill David. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah came to his aid and attacked the Philistine and killed him. Then David’s men swore to him, ‘You shall no longer go out with us to battle, lest you quench the lamp of Israel.'” -2 Samuel 21:15-17

Sometimes we need help conquering the giants in our lives and we need to help others conquer the giants in their lives.

What are the giants in your life? Conquer them by faith. God’s grace gives supernatural victories.
