Scripture at Sunrise 3.21.2019

ThursdayTheologicalTweet

And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the LORD and praise Him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say, “Give thanks to the LORD, for His steadfast love endures forever.” And when they began to sing and praise, the LORD set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. -2 Chronicles 20:21-22

“Singing to God isn’t just a nice emotional trip to spice up a worship service. It’s an attack against sin and Satan.” -John Piper via DesiringGod on Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 3.20.2019

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” -1 Corinthians 15:17-20

Genesis ends with Joseph’s death. Deuteronomy ends with Moses’ death. Joshua ends with Joshua’s death. Gospels end with Jesus’ resurrection. And that changes everything. —Tony Merida

Scripture at Sunrise 3.19.2019

“The Lord will give grace and glory.” -Psalm 84:11

Grace is what we need just now, and it is to be had freely. What can be freer than a gift? Today we shall receive sustaining, strengthening, sanctifying, satisfying grace. He has given daily grace until now, and as for the future, that grace is still sufficient. If we have but little grace the fault must lie in ourselves; for the Lord is not straitened, neither is He slow to bestow it in abundance. We may ask for as much as we will and never fear a refusal. He giveth liberally and upbraideth not.

The Lord may not give gold, but He will give grace: He may not give gain, but He will give grace. He will certainly send us trial, but He will give grace in proportion thereto. We may be called to labor and to suffer, but with the call there will come all the grace required;

What an “end” is that in the text—”and glory!” We do not need glory yet, and we are not yet fit for it; but we shall have it in due order. After we have eaten the bread of grace, we shall drink the wine of glory. We must go through the holy, which is grace, to the holiest of all, which is glory. These words and glory are enough to make a man dance for joy. A little while—a little while, and then glory forever!

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

Scripture at Sunrise 3.18.2019

6But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.” -1 Timothy 6:6-10

You fall into sin when your soul is not satisfied in God. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

“Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” -Isaiah 6:5

When Isaiah experiences a vision of God he doesn’t cry “Wow!” but “Woe!” God doesn’t overwhelm us with how brilliantly like us He is, but with how disastrously unlike Him we are. -Sam Allberry via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 3.13.2019

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” -Hebrews 12:1-3

As Christians, we are running a race that God has set before us. As we run, we must remember the witnesses, relinquish the weights, renounce the sin, and run with patience. Look unto Jesus and keep your focus on Him, observing His ways, and patterning your life after Him. -Josh Wilson from 3/10 Evening Sermon (audio below)
