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.
