Scripture at Sunrise 7.26.2016

“And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord, that thou shalt call Me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali; for I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.” -Hosea 2:16-17

That day has come. We view our God no more as Baal, our tyrant lord and mighty master, for we are not under law but under grace. We now think of Jehovah, our God, as our Ishi, our beloved husband, our lord in love, our next-of-kin in bonds of sacred relationship. We do not serve Him less obediently, but we serve Him for a higher and more endearing reason. We no longer tremble under His lash but rejoice in His love. The slave is changed into a child and the task into a pleasure.

Is it so with thee, dear reader? Has grace cast out slavish fear and implanted filial love? How happy are we in such an experience! Now we call the Lord’s day a delight, and worship is never a weariness. Prayer is now a privilege, and praise is a holiday. To obey is heaven; to give to the cause of God is a banquet. Thus have all things become new. Our mouth is filled with singing and our heart with music. Blessed be our heavenly Ishi forever and ever.

Scripture at Sunrise 7.25.2016

Christian Liberty vs. License to Sin | Romans 3:7-8 | Steve Wainright
“But if through my lie God’s truth abounds to His glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.” -Romans 3:7-8

Doing evil that good may come is never right. The end does not justify the means. For example, we sometimes classify sins, such as “a little white lie”. Lying is always wrong, even if you’re trying to lie to make good come from it. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.21.2016

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” -Galatians 6:9-10

Awesomeness isn’t our calling; love is. Impact isn’t our calling; presence is. Success isn’t our calling; faithfulness is. -Scotty Smith via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 7.20.2016

“But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.)” -Romans 3:5

God’s grace is on display with the ugliness of man’s sin as the background. It pops–like when you see a piece of jewelry on black velvet.  -excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.19.2016

“Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.” -Deuteronomy 33:25

Here are two things provided for the pilgrim: shoes and strength.

As for the shoes: they are very needful for traveling along rough ways and for trampling upon deadly foes. We shall not go barefoot — this would not be suitable for princes of the blood royal. Our shoes shall not be at all of the common sort, for they shall have soles of durable metal, which will not wear out even if the journey be long and difficult. We shall have protection proportionate to the necessities of the road and the battle. Wherefore let us march boldly on, fearing no harm even though we tread on serpents or set our foot upon the dragon himself.

As for the strength: it shall be continued as long as our days shall continue, and it shall be proportioned to the stress and burden of those days. The words are few, “as thy days thy strength,” but the meaning is full. This day we may look for trial, and for work which will require energy, but we may just as confidently look for equal strength. This word given to Asher is given to us also who have faith wherewith to appropriate it. Let us rise to the holy boldness which it is calculated to create within the believing heart.

Scripture at Sunrise 7.18.2016

Not Wanting What You Need | John 3:9-12 | Anthony Vance
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? -John 3:9-12

Of all the things mankind lost in the fall, chiefly, man lost his ability to believe in God. The natural man has no desire for God and refuses to act upon what he has been shown. Because of his sinful desires, man doesn’t want what he needs. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon
