Scripture at Sunrise 11.30.2022

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous…” -1 John 2:1

A child of God stands before the Father. Christ pleads our case before Him. Everyone He represents is guilty. He pleads with the Father based on His payment for our sin. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Do Not Sin” from 1 John 2:1-2)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.29.2022

“He that believeth shall not make haste.” -Isaiah 28:16

He shall make haste to keep the Lord’s commandments; but he shall not make haste in any impatient or improper sense.

He shall not haste to run away, for he shall not be overcome with the fear which causes panic. When others are flying hither and thither as if their wits had failed them, the believer shall be quiet, calm, and deliberate, and so shall be able to act wisely in the hour of trial.

He shall not haste in his expectations, craving his good things at once and on the spot, but he will wait God’s time. Some are in a desperate hurry to have the bird in the hand, for they regard the Lord’s promise as a bird in the bush, not likely to be theirs. Believers know how to wait.

He shall not haste by plunging into wrong or questionable action. Unbelief must be doing something, and thus it works its own undoing; but faith makes no more haste than good speed, and thus it is not forced to go back sorrowfully by the way which it followed heedlessly.

How is it with me? Am I believing, and am I therefore keeping to the believer’s pace, which is walking with God? Peace, fluttering spirit! Oh, rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him! Heart, see that thou do this at once!

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

Summing Up Sunday 11.28.2022

“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.” -Psalm 42:5

Sometimes we get hopeless because we’re looking for hope in all the wrong places. Hope is only found in Christ. You will never be satisfied until your desire is for God and God alone.

-Associate Pastor Josh Wilson (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon “Depressed & Discouraged” from Psalm 42)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.17.2022

“And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.” -1 Corinthians 15:14

Upon a life I did not live, upon a death I did not die, I risk my whole eternity on the resurrection.” -Charles Suprgeon via @SpurgeonBooks

Scripture at Sunrise 11.16.2022

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that He might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.” -Ephesians 2:14-17

“There can be no peace between you and Christ while there is peace between you and sin.” -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 11.15.2022

“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:19

Paul’s God is our God and will supply all our need. Paul felt sure of this in reference to the Philippians, and we feel sure of it as to ourselves. God will do it, for it is like Him: He loves us, He delights to bless us, and it will glorify Him to do so. His pity, His power, His love, His faithfulness, all work together that we be not famished.

What a measure doth the Lord go by: “According to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” The riches of His grace are large, but what shall we say of the riches of His glory? His “riches of glory by Christ Jesus”-who shall form an estimate of this? According to this immeasurable measure will God fill up the immense abyss of our necessities. He makes the Lord Jesus the receptacle and the channel of His fullness, and then He imparts to us His wealth of love in its highest form. Hallelujah!

The writer knows what it is to be tried in the work of the Lord. Fidelity has been recompensed with anger, and liberal givers have stopped their subscriptions; but he whom they sought to oppress has not been one penny the poorer, nay, rather he has been the richer; for this promise has been true, “My God shall supply all your need.” God’s supplies are surer than any bank.

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

“This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.” -1 John 1:5

If you want to have fellowship and fullness of joy, your life must be emptied of everything that is false and impure.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “The Key to Fellowship” from 1 John 1:5)
