Sunday Morning Sermon: A Sinner’s Spiritual Ignorance | John 4:11-19 | Anthony Vance
The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.” -John 4:15

Be patient with who you are talking to as the Lord is the One who has to turn on their spiritual comprehension.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.27.2016

“But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.” -Romans 6:17-18

Evil things are easy things: for they are natural to our fallen nature. Right things are rare flowers that need cultivation. -Spurgeon via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.26.2016

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and he would have given you living water.” -John 4:10
Standing before this woman at the well was much more than a friendly Jew–it was her very Creator. But there was a barrier of spiritual ignorance. This woman was ignorant of both the Giver and the gift He was offering to her.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.25.2016

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” -Matthew 6:33

See how the Bible opens: “In the beginning God.” Let your life open in the same way. Seek with your whole soul, first and foremost, the kingdom of God, as the place of your citizenship, and His righteousness as the character of your life. As for the rest, it will come from the Lord Himself without your being anxious concerning it. All that is needful for this life and godliness “shall be added unto you.”

What a promise this is! Food, raiment, home, and so forth, God undertakes to add to you while you seek Him. You mind His business, and He will mind yours. If you want paper and string, you get them given in when you buy more important goods; and just so all that we need of earthly things we shall have thrown in with the kingdom. He who is an heir of salvation shall not die of starvation; and he who clothes his soul with the righteousness of God cannot be left of the Lord with a naked body. Away with carking care. Set all your mind upon seeking the Lord. Covetousness is poverty, and anxiety is misery: trust in God is an estate, and likeness of God is a heavenly inheritance. Lord, I seek Thee; be found of me.

Scripture after Sunset 10.24.2016

Sunday Morning Sermon: One God, One Way | Romans 3:29-31 | Steve Wainright
“Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.” -Romans 3:29-30

There is only one God and only one way to be saved. The Jews were guilty of limiting God to just themselves, but the Gospel is for all nations and all people groups.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.20.2016

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” -Romans 8:28

Jesus, may You be the most unavoidable reality in our day. Give us eyes to see Your heart and hand everywhere. -Scotty Smith via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 10.19.2016

“Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.” -Romans 3:27-28
Here’s Paul’s conclusion. Here’s the bottom line. Paul says, “This is it!”: that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. You don’t have to produce works to be saved. That was accomplished when Christ died upon Calvary–when He died upon that cross. He died for my sins that I might be justified in the sight of God. God declares me righteous because of the finished work of Christ. I can’t boast about what I did; I can boast about what Christ did for me. He did it all! Jesus paid it all!

Scripture at Sunrise 10.18.2016

“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.” -Psalm 126:5

Weeping times are suitable for sowing: we do not want the ground to be too dry. Seed steeped in the tears of earnest anxiety will come up all the sooner. The salt of prayerful tears will give the good seed a flavor which will preserve it from the worm: truth spoken in awful earnestness has a double life about it. Instead of stopping our sowing because of our weeping, let us redouble our efforts because the season is so propitious.

Our heavenly seed could not fitly be sown laughing. Deep sorrow and concern for the souls of others are a far more fit accompaniment of godly teaching than anything like levity. We have heard of men who went to war with a light heart, but they were beaten; and it is mostly so with those who sow in the same style.

Come, then, my heart, sow on in thy weeping, for thou has the promise of a joyful harvest. Thou shalt reap. Thou, thyself, shalt see some results of thy labor. This shall come to thee in so large a measure as to give thee joy, which a poor, withered, and scanty harvest would not do. When thine eyes are dim with silver tears, think of the golden corn. Bear cheerfully the present toil and disappointment; for the harvest day will fully recompense thee.
