Scripture at Sunrise 1.28.2016

“I will put enmity between you and the woman,  and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” -Genesis 3:15

Whenever we run to the cross, we step on the crushed head of Satan. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 1.27.2016

“True obedience is the refusal to compromise in any regard our relationship with God, regardless of the consequences.” A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 1.26.2016

“Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel.” -Numbers 23:23

How this should cut up root and branch all silly, superstitious fears! Even if there were any truth in witchcraft and omens, they could not affect the people of the Lord. Those whom God blessed, devils cannot curse.

Ungodly men, like Balaam, may cunningly plot the overthrow of the Lord’s Israel; but with all their secrecy and policy they are doomed to fail. Their powder is damp; the edge of their sword is blunted. They gather together; but as the Lord is not with them, they gather together in vain. We may sit still and let them weave their nets, for we shall not be taken in them. Though they call in the aid of Beelzebub and employ all his serpentine craft, it will avail them nothing: the spells will not work, the divination will deceive them. What a blessing this is! How it quiets the heart! God’s Jacobs wrestle with God, but none shall wrestle with them and prevail. God’s Israels have to prevail against them. We need not fear the fiend himself, nor any of those secret enemies whose words are full of deceit and whose plans are deep and unfathomable. They cannot hurt those who trust in the living God. We defy the devil and all his legions.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.25.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright
Paul: His Master, His Office, & His Purpose | Romans 1:1

“Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…” -Romans 1:1

In the first verse of Romans, Paul shares three simple facts about himself: his Master, his office, and his purpose.

He was a servant of Christ Jesus, who loved him and gave Himself for him. He was an apostle, sent by God to speak of Him…to be His witness. He was set apart for the Gospel of God before he was even born.

The point of your life is to be a witness of the Gospel of God. Are you being one?

Scripture at Sunrise 1.21.2016

“The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” -Zephaniah 3:17

What greater value could you possibly have than to be delighted in and sacrificed for by the Maker of the universe? -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 1.20.2016

“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” -Psalm 121:1-2

The all-sufficient, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present God is our keeper. He is our helper (and look at His resume in verse 2!). He preserves us and protects us.

Look to the keeper of the psalmist, the keeper of Israel, the keeper of your life!

from The Lord Our Keeper, J. Anthony Vance on Psalm 121

Scripture at Sunrise 1.19.2016

If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. -Romans 10:9

There must be confession with the mouth. Have I made it? Have I openly avowed my faith in Jesus as the Savior whom God has raised from the dead, and have I done it in God’s way! Let me honestly answer this question.

There must also be belief with the heart. Do I sincerely believe in the risen Lord Jesus? Do I trust in Him as my sole hope of salvation? Is this trust from my heart? Let me answer as before God.

If I can truly claim that I have both confessed Christ and believed in Him, then I am saved. The text does not say it may be so, but it is plain as a pikestaff and clear as the sun in the heavens: “Thou shalt be saved.” As a believer and a confessor, I may lay my hand on this promise and plead it before the Lord God at this moment, and throughout life, and in the hour of death, and at the Day of Judgment.

I must be saved from the guilt of sin, the power of sin, the punishment of sin, and ultimately from the very being of sin. God hath said it — “Thou shalt be saved.” I believe it. I shall be saved. I am saved. Glory be to God forever and ever!

Scripture at Sunrise 1.18.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Intro to Romans | Romans 1-16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” -Romans 1:16-17

Referred to as Paul’s Magnum Opus, Romans is all about the Gospel. In a nutshell, it’s about: God’s righteousness as seen in the law Christ has fulfilled. Sin has affected man’s righteousness and now God offers His perfect righteousness to all those who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
