Sunday Morning| Pastor Steve Wainright | What Do You Think? | Philippians 4:8-9
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” -Philippians 4:8-9

What you think determines how you live. Thoughts turn to action. How’s your thought life?

Scripture at Sunrise 11.25.2015

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.” John 1:6-9

John the Baptist was a pale light in comparison to the Light he was reflecting. The purpose of His life was to point to another. As great as John was, he knew his role and knew Who was greater. – J. Anthony Vance, from 11/22/2015 Evening Sermon on John 1:6-9

Scripture at Sunrise 11.24.2015

“He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever.” -Psalm 103:9

He will chide sometimes, or He would not be a wise Father for such poor, erring children as we are. His chiding is very painful to those who are true, because they feel how sadly they deserve it and how wrong it is on their part to grieve Him. We know what this chiding means, and we bow before the Lord, mourning that we should cause Him to be angry with us.

But what a comfort we find in these lines! “Not always” will He chide. If we repent and turn to Him with hearts broken for sin and broken from sin, He will smile upon us at once. It is no pleasure to Him to turn a frowning face toward those whom He loves with all His heart: it is His joy that our joy should be full.

Come, let us seek His face. There is no reason for despair, nor even for despondency. Let us love a chiding God, and before long we shall sing, “Thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortest me.” Be gone, ye dark forebodings, ye ravens of the soul! Come in, ye humble hopes and grateful memories, ye doves of the heart! He who pardoned us long ago as a judge will again forgive us as a father, and we shall rejoice in His sweet, unchanging love.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 11.23.2015

Sunday Morning| Pastor Steve Wainright | Peace in Perilous Times | Philippians 4:1-9
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:6-7

We as God’s children should not worry, but give everything to God in prayer. Pray giving thanks, knowing that God is working out His purpose and His plan no matter what is happening in your life. When you pray thankfully, it’s like a spiritual tranquilizer bringing the peace of God that passes all understanding.
