Scripture at Sunrise 8.31.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Rejoicing is Your Security | Philippians 3:1-4
“Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.” -Philippians 3:1

Our source of joy is Jesus Christ. Rejoicing is a safeguard to you, especially in your affliction. If you’re rejoicing, you can’t complain. It is your security against dangers and temptations of the world.

Is the joy of the Lord your strength?

Scripture at Sunrise 8.27.2015

Scripture at Sunrise 8.26.2015

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” -1 John 3:1

Scripture at Sunrise 8.25.2015

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. -1 Corinthians 1:19

This verse is a threatening so far as the worldly wise are concerned, but to the simple believer it is a promise. The professedly learned are forever trying to bring to nothing the faith of the humble believer, but they fail in their attempts. Their arguments break down, their theories fall under their own weight, their deep-laid plots discover themselves before their purpose is accomplished. The old gospel is not extinct yet, nor will it be while the Lord liveth. If it could have been exterminated, it would have perished from off the earth long ago.

We cannot destroy the wisdom of the wise, nor need we attempt it, for the work is in far better hands. The Lord Himself says, “I will,” and He never resolves in vain. Twice does He in this verse declare His purpose, and we may rest assured that He will not turn aside from it.

What clean work the Lord makes of philosophy and “modern thought” when He puts His hand to it! He brings the fine appearance down to nothing; He utterly destroys the wood, hay, and stubble. It is written that so it shall be, and so shall it be. Lord, make short work of it. Amen, and amen.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.24.2015

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | The Lasting Effects of Sin | 1 Kings 14:1-20
“And he will give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, which he sinned and made Israel to sin.” -1 Kings 14:16

Sin destroyed Jeroboam’s legacy, brought immediate grief and pain to the closest ones he loved, and eventually took the nation of Israel into captivity. Be sure your sins will find you out and will effect people long after you are gone.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.20.2015

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” -1 John 2:15

Be thankful for the thorns and thistles, which keep you from being in love with this world, and becoming an idolater. -Charles H. Spurgeon via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.19.2015

“So shall My Word be that goes out from My mouth; it shall not return to Me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” -Isaiah 55:11

It is better to preach five words of God’s Word than five million words of man’s wisdom. -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 8.18.2015

If you seek Him, He will be found by you… -1 Chronicles 28:9

We need our God; He is to be had for the seeking, and He will not deny Himself to any one of us if we personally seek His face. It is not if thou deserve Him, or purchase His favor, but merely if thou “seek” Him. Those who already know the Lord must go on seeking His face by prayer, by diligent service, and by holy gratitude: to such He will not refuse His favor and fellowship. Those who, as yet, have not known Him to their souls’ rest should at once commence seeking and never cease till they find Him as their Savior, their Friend, their Father, and their God.

What strong assurance this promise gives to the seeker! “He that seeketh findeth.” You, yes you, if you seek your God shall find Him. When you find Him you have found life, pardon, sanctification, preservation, and glory. Will you not seek, and seek on, since you shall not seek in vain’ Dear friend, seek the Lord at once. Here is the place, and now is the time. Bend that stiff knee; yes, bend that stiffer neck, and cry out for God, for the living God. In the name of Jesus, seek cleansing and justification. You shall not be refused. Here is David’s testimony to his son Solomon, and it is the writer’s personal witness to the reader. Believe it and act upon it, for Christ’s sake.
