ThursdayTheologicalTweet

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end…” -Lamentations 3:22
God’s new mercies every morning are not ultimately meant to draw our eyes to His mercies but to Him. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 7.26.2017

“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” -Hebrews 4:16
We are so quick to tweet, facebook, and instagram but we treat prayer with a sense of delay. -Tim Keller

Scripture at Sunrise 7.25.2017

“But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.” -Daniel 12:13

We cannot understand all the prophecies, but yet we regard them with pleasure and not with dismay. There can be nothing in the Father’s decree which should justly alarm His child. Though the abomination of desolation be set up, yet the true believer shall not be defiled; rather shall he be purified, and made white, and tried. Though the earth be burned up, no smell of fire shall come upon the chosen. Amid the crash of matter and the wreck of worlds, the Lord Jehovah will preserve His own.

Calmly resolute in duty, brave in conflict, patient in suffering, let us go our way, keeping to our road, and neither swerving from it nor loitering in it. The end will come; let us go our way till it does.

Rest will be ours, All other things swing to and fro, but our foundation standeth sure. God rests in His love, and, therefore, we rest in it. Our peace is, and ever shall be, like a river. A lot in the heavenly Canaan is ours, and we shall stand in it, come what may. The God of Daniel will give a worthy portion to all who dare to be decided for truth and holiness as Daniel was. No den of lions shall deprive us of our sure inheritance.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture after Sunrise 7.24.2017

Sunday Evening | I Am the Bread of Life | John 6:48-51
I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die.” -John 6:48-50

Manna in the wilderness was a physical illustration of a spiritual truth. Comparing and contrasting the Bread of Life to manna, we see both how the Lord is like manna and how He is different from manna. Both are incomprehensible. Both are sources of life. Both satisfy hunger and need. However, manna was designed to meet a temporal need. Jesus gives us eternal life. Manna spoiled, but Christ is the Living Bread.  -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon
