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

Scripture at Sunrise 5.17.2017

Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.” -Romans 7:4
Christ died the death that the law demanded. By His death, we are dead to the law. We are saved and united to Christ to bring forth fruit for God. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.16.2017

“Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.” -Matthew 5:7

It is not meet that the man who will not forgive should be forgiven, nor shall he who will not give to the poor have his own wants relieved. God will measure to us with our own bushels, and those who have been hard masters and hard creditors will find that the Lord will deal hardly with them. “He shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy.”

This day let us try to give and to forgive. Let us mind the two bears – bear and forbear. Let us be kind, gentle, and tender. Let us not put harsh constructions upon men’s conduct, nor drive hard bargains, nor pick foolish quarrels, nor be difficult to please. Surely we wish to be blessed, and we also want to obtain mercy: let us be merciful, that we may have mercy. Let us fulfill the condition, that we may earn the beatitude. Is it not a pleasant duty to be kind? Is there not much more sweetness in it than in being angry and ungenerous? Why, there is a blessedness in the thing itself! Moreover, the obtaining of mercy is a rich reward. What but sovereign grace could suggest such a promise as this’. We are merciful to our fellow mortal in pence, and the Lord forgives us “all the debt.”

Scripture at Sunset 5.15.2017

Sunday Evening |  Responses to the Feeding of the 5000 | John 6:14-15 | Anthony Vance
When the people saw the sign that He had done, they said, ‘This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!’ Perceiving then that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by Himself.” -John 6:14-15

This multitude had a wrong understanding of who Jesus was and what His mission was. They wanted to be delivered from the Roman government. Their greatest need was not for deliverance from Rome, but deliverance from Satan, sin, and death. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. -2 Corinthians 12:9
