Scripture at Sunrise 9.29.2020

“He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.” John 16:14

The Holy Ghost Himself cannot better glorify the Lord Jesus than by showing to us Christ’s own things. Jesus is His own best commendation. There is no adorning Him except with his own gold.

The Comforter shows us that which He has received of our Lord Jesus. We never see anything aright till He reveals it. He has a way of opening our minds and of opening the Scriptures, and by this double process He sets forth our Lord to us. There is much art in setting forth a matter, and that art belongs in the highest degree to the Spirit of truth. He shows us the things themselves. This is a great privilege, as those know who have enjoyed the hallowed vision.

Let us seek the illumination of the Spirit; not to gratify our curiosity, nor even to bring us personal comfort, so much as to glorify the Lord Jesus. Oh, to have worthy ideas of Him! Groveling notions dishonor our precious Lord. Oh, to have such vivid impressions of His person, and work, and glory that we may with heart and soul cry out to His praise! Where there is a heart enriched by the Holy Ghost’s teaching there will be a Savior glorified beyond expression. Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly light, and show us Jesus our Lord!

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

Scripture at Sunrise 9.24.2020

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” -1 Peter 5:8

A prayer when facing temptation…

Lord, help me feel now, what I will feel later if I give in to this sin.

Make me sober-minded.

Amen

-Garrett Kell via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.23.2020

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” -Colossians 3:1

When you trust in Christ and grow in His grace and knowledge, your priorities shift from that which is temporal to that which is eternal. [from Sunday Morning Sermon, 9/20/2020 – Hebrews 10:32-39
The Need for Endurance]

Scripture at Sunrise 9.22.2020

But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.” -Isaiah 33:21

The Lord will be to us the greatest good without any of the drawbacks which seem necessarily to attend the best earthly things. If a city is favored with broad rivers, it is liable to be attacked by galleys with oars and other ships of war. But when the Lord represents the abundance of His bounty under this figure, He takes care expressly to shut out the fear which the metaphor might suggest. Blessed be His perfect love!

Lord, if Thou send me wealth like broad rivers, do not let the galley with oars come up in the shape of worldliness or pride. If Thou grant me abundant health and happy spirits, do not let “the gallant ship” of carnal ease come sailing up the flowing flood. If I have success in holy service, broad as the German Rhine, yet let me never find the galley of self-conceit and self-confidence floating on the waves of my usefulness. Should I be so supremely happy as to enjoy the light of Thy countenance year after year, yet let me never despise Thy feeble saints, nor allow the vain notion of my own perfection to sail up the broad rivers of my full assurance. Lord, give me that blessing which maketh rich and neither addeth sorrow nor aideth sin.

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

Scripture after Sunrise 9.21.2020

“Then they brought out the king’s son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king.” -2 Chronicles 23:11

The king must be made known! Even so, in our day and time, there are many people who are controlled by Satan’s rule. It is our responsibility to make the King known. There are people who do not know that there is a King upon the throne: the Lord Jesus Christ. We must make Him known!

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 23:1-21 – “To Be God’s People)

Scripture at Sunrise 9.10.2020

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” -Romans 8:1

The Christian can strive for the loftiest goals of devotion without fear; we can fail and get up time and time again without detriment to our hope or joy because our standing before God is fixed upon the perfect work of Christ and His love for us is immutable and unassailable. -Paul Washer via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.9.2020

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.” -Habakkuk 2:1

When you pray, are you anticipating God to answer? Are you looking for the slightest way that God might be moving in how you are praying? -Pastor Steve Wainright [from Wednesday Evening Sermon, 9/2/2020 – Habakkuk 2:1-3, Anticipating Answers to Prayer]

Scripture at Sunrise 9.8.2020

A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench.” -Isaiah 42:3

Then I may reckon upon tender treatment from my Lord. Indeed, I feel myself to be at best as weak, as pliant, as worthless as a reed. Someone said, “I don’t care a rush for you”; and the speech, though unkind, was not untrue. Alas! I am worse than a reed when it grows by the river, for that at least can hold up its head. I am bruised—sorely, sadly bruised. There is no music in me now; there is a rift which lets out all the melody. Ah, me! Yet Jesus will not break me; and if He will not, then I mind little what others try to do. O sweet and compassionate Lord, I nestle down beneath Thy protection and forget my bruises!

Truly I am also fit to be likened to “the smoking flax,” whose light is gone, and only its smoke remains. I fear I am rather a nuisance than a benefit. My fears tell me that the devil has blown out my light and left me an obnoxious smoke, and that my Lord will soon put an extinguisher upon one. Yet I perceive that though there were snuffers under the law, there were no extinguishers, and Jesus will not quench me; therefore, I am hopeful. Lord, kindle me anew and cause me to shine forth to Thy glory and to the extolling of Thy tenderness.
