Scripture at Sunrise 5.31.2017

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” -Galatians 6:7-8
God’s Word gets blunt to show us how sinful sin is. When you prostitute yourself out to sin, it becomes your master and controls your life. False promises soon fade.
Sexual gratification lasts only for a moment, but leads to death, disease, and broken relationships. Sinning ultimately says that you’re not satisfied with God. -excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.30.2017

“Nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of Heaven.” -Matthew 26:64

Ah, Lord, Thou wast in Thy lowest state when before Thy persecutors Thou wast made to stand like a criminal! Yet the eyes of Thy faith could see beyond Thy present humiliation into Thy future glory. What words are these, “Nevertheless – hereafter!” I would imitate Thy holy foresight, and in the midst of poverty, or sickness, or slander, I also would say, “Nevertheless – hereafter.” Instead of weakness, Thou hast all power; instead of shame, all glory; instead of derision, all worship, Thy cross has not dimmed the splendor of Thy crown, neither has the spittle marred the beauty of Thy face. Say, rather, Thou are the more exalted and honored because of Thy sufferings.

So, Lord, I also would take courage from the “hereafter.” I would forget the present tribulation in the future triumph. Help thou me by directing me into Thy Father’s love and into Thine own patience, so that when I am derided for Thy name I may not be staggered but think more and more of the hereafter, and, therefore, all the less of today. I shall be with Thee soon and behold Thy glory. Wherefore, I am not ashamed but say in my inmost soul, “Nevertheless – hereafter.”

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” -Lamentations 3:22-23

Scripture at Sunrise 5.24.2017

Now the men of the city said to Elisha, “Behold, the situation of this city is pleasant,as my lord sees, but the water is bad, and the land is unfruitful.” He said, “Bring me anew bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then he went to the spring of water and threw salt in it and said, “Thus says the LORD, I have healed this water; from now on neither death nor miscarriage shall come from it.” -2 Kings 2:19-21
Elisha called for a new vessel and salt, all of which points to Christ. He is the only One who can change a heart and change a life and purify. Our lives must be filled with the Spirit of God and the Word of God. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.23.2017

“For He delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper.” -Psalm 72:12

The needy cries; what else can he do? His cry is heard of God; what else need he do? Let the needy reader take to crying at once, for this will be his wisdom. Do not cry in the ears of friends, for even if they can help you it is only because the Lord enables them. The nearest way is to go straight to God and let your cry come up before Him. Straightforward makes the best runner: run to the Lord and not to secondary causes.

“Alas!” you cry, “I have no friend or helper.” So much the better; you can rely upon God in both capacities – as without supplies and without helpers. Make your double need your double plea. Even for temporal mercies you may wait upon God, for He careth for His children in these temporary concerns. As for spiritual necessities, which are the heaviest of all, the Lord will hear your cry and will deliver you and supply you.

O poor friend, try your rich God. O helpless one, lean on His help. He has never failed me, and I am sure He will never fail you. Come as a beggar, and God will not refuse you help. Come with no plea but His grace. Jesus is King; will He let you perish of wants? What! Did you forget this!

Scripture at Sunset 5.22.2017

Sunday Morning | The Relation of the Law to Sin | Romans 7:6-13 | Steve Wainright
“What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, ‘You shall not covet.'” -Romans 7:7

You don’t realize how sinful you are until the law comes in and exposes your sin. The law is not the problem, your sin is. The law is there to show you your sin and your need for a Savior. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon
