Scripture at Sunrise 10.29.2015

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in Him.'” -Lamentations 3:22-24

God tells us His mercies are new every morning not so that we’ll have an easy day but so we’ll joyfully depend on Him in the day’s trials. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.28.2015

“I have manifested Your Name to the people whom You gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and You gave them to me, and they have kept Your word. -John 17:6

Christ is the final spokesman for God.

The Father gave a people for Christ to come for, live for, die for, and redeem. Christ came with a Father-directed mission and to manifest God’s Name. -Anthony Vance, from 10/25/2015 Sunday Morning Sermon on John 1 (Listen Here)

Scripture at Sunrise 10.27.2015

“His servants shall serve Him: and they shall see His face; and His Name shall be in their forehead.” -Revelation 22:3-4

Three choice blessings will be ours in the gloryland.

“His servants shall serve him.” No other lords shall oppress us, no other service shall distress us. We shall serve Jesus always, perfectly, without weariness, and without error. This is heaven to a saint: in all things to serve the Lord Christ and to be owned by Him as His servant is our soul’s high ambition for eternity.

“And they shall see his face.” This makes the service delightful: indeed, it is the present reward of service. We shall know our Lord, for we shall see Him as He is. To see the face of Jesus is the utmost favor that the most faithful servant of the Lord can ask. What more could Moses ask than-“Let me see thy face?”

“And his name shall be in their foreheads.” They gaze upon their Lord till His name is photographed upon their brows. They are acknowledged by Him, and they acknowledge Him. The secret mark of inward grace develops into the public sign-manual of confessed relationship.

O Lord, give us these three things in their beginnings here that we may possess them in their fullness in Thine own abode of bliss!

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

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | Needs Arise & God Supplies | 1 Kings 17:1-24
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ… -Philippians 3:20

When needs start arising, you can know for sure that God is at work! God had prepared that brook way before Elijah even had a need. He is providing before we know we have a need! This is true in salvation also: The Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world. He died for your sins even before you knew you were a sinner!
