Scripture at Sunrise 4.30.2015

“For it is You who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness.” -Psalm 18:28

Moonlight reminds us that God never leaves us without His light in the midst of life’s darkness. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 4.29.2015

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” -1 Peter 5:10

Grace is the most perplexing, powerful force in the universe, and, I believe, the only hope for our twisted, violent planet.” -Philip Yancey

Scripture at Sunrise 4.28.2015

“I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” -2 Corinthians 6:16

Here is a mutual interest. Each belongs to each. God is the portion of His people, and the chosen people are the portion of their God. The saints find in God their chief possession, and He reckons them to be His peculiar treasure. What a mine of comfort lies in this fact for each believer!

This happy condition of mutual interest leads to mutual consideration. God will always think of His own people, and they will always think of Him. This day my God will perform all things for me; what can I do for Him? My thoughts ought to run toward Him, for He thinketh upon me. Let me make sure that it is so and not be content with merely admitting that so it ought to be.

This, again, leads to mutual fellowship. God dwells in us, and we dwell in Him; He walks with us, and we walk with God….

Oh, for grace to treat the Lord as my God: to trust Him and to serve Him, as His Godhead deserves! Oh, that I could love, worship, adore, and obey Jehovah in spirit and in truth! This is my heart’s desire. When I shall attain to it, I shall have found my heaven. Lord, help me! Be my God in helping me to know Thee as my God, for Jesus’ sake.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 4.27.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Glory in the Cross | Galatians 6:11-18
“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” -Galatians 6:14

The message of the cross is that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. The effect of the cross is that the world is crucified to you. It is of no value to you. The cross does something the outward flesh can’t. It makes a new creature.

What do you glory in? Are you boasting in Christ’s cross or are you enamored by the world?
