Scripture at Sunrise 05.26.2022

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:” -Psalm 103:2

“Habits of complaint tend to beat down the growth of hope. Counting your blessings encourages hope, numbering your complaints deflates it. –Paul Tripp

Scripture at Sunrise 05.25.2022

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” -Luke 16:10

The way to do a great deal, is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all, is to be continually resolving that you will do everything. -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 05.24.2022

“One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, He it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.” -Joshua 23:10

Why count heads? One man with God is a majority though there be a thousand on the other side. Sometimes our helpers may be too many for God to work with them, as was the case with Gideon, who could do nothing till he had increased his forces by thinning out their numbers. But the Lord’s hosts are never too few. When God would found a nation, He called Abram alone and blessed him. When He would vanquish proud Pharaoh, He used no armies, but only Moses and Aaron. The “one-man ministry,” as certain wise men call it, has been far more used of the Lord than trained bands with their officers. Did all the Israelites together slay so many as Samson alone? Saul and his hosts slew their thousands but David his ten thousands.

The Lord can give the enemy long odds and yet vanquish him. If we have faith, we have God with us, and what are multitudes of men? One shepherd’s dog can drive before him a flock of sheep. If the Lord sent thee, O my brother, His strength will accomplish His divine purpose. Wherefore, rely on the promise, and be very courageous. 

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

Summing Up Sunday 05.23.2022

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” -Isaiah 55:8-9

God does what is best. Therefore, we walk by faith and not by answers that give us understanding.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “The Rest of Your Time in the Flesh” from 1 Peter 4:1-6)

Summing Up Sunday 05.09.2022

“For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit…” -1 Peter 3:17-18

Have you ever suffered for doing something good and then have somebody fuss at you or curse at you or complain about you, and you’ve made this comment: “I don’t deserve this”? Have you ever felt like you don’t deserve certain suffering? We deserve so much more.

We sing, “I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene and wonder how He could love me, a sinner condemned unclean.”

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “Vindicated in Suffering” from 1 Peter 3:18-4:1)

Scripture at Sunrise 04.21.2022

“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” -2 Corinthians 12:9

“The promise is ‘My grace is sufficient’ (2 Cor 12:9), not ‘My grace will abolish your thorns.’” –Elisabeth Elliot
