Scripture at Sunrise 4.16.2018

“Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” -Romans 12:17-21

An Unshakeable Faith

Scripture at Sunrise 4.9.2018

“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.” -Romans 12:14-16
 
Has the radical love and mercy that God has shown toward you affected your love toward others? Has it affected your attitude? God’s Word speaks to our self-centeredness. Life is not about you.

Hezekiah’s Bully Prevention

Scripture at Sunrise 4.2.2018

“And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain…But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead…” -1 Corinthians 15:14,20

There is no point in life if there is no resurrection. With no resurrection, there is no relationship with God. There is nothing after death. There is no purpose for morals. There is no hope beyond this life. There is no reason for living. If there is no resurrection, the power of death remains unbroken and we remain dead in our sins. But the reality is, there is a resurrection!

Hezekiah, an Example of Godliness

Scripture at Sunrise 3.26.2018

“”Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” -Romans 12:11-13

Don’t be sluggish in zeal in your service to the Lord. Be fervent in spirit. When the warmth of the soul is touched with the love of Christ, the Spirit bubbles inside of you.

Scripture at Sunrise 3.19.2018

“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” -Romans 12:9-10
Our world has a twisted definition of love. When sin entered the world, it perverted the meaning of love. Communion with God was broken. Sin has marred the love we should have for God and one another. The only way our love can be restored is by trusting in Christ.

Love should be the rule for the child of God, stimulated by the Spirit of God through the mercies of God. Know the depths of God’s love for you so that you may love others genuinely without facade or hypocrisy.

Following Emptiness

Scripture at Sunrise 3.12.2018

So Jotham became mighty, because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.” -2 Chronicles 27:6 

Whereas Jotham sought godly power and acknowledged God’s presence and overriding rule, Ahaz searched for power wherever he could get it.
Our kingdom needs to come under the rule of God. “My” kingdom and “my” rule will only lead to my disaster. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 3.5.2018

“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” -John 10:28-29

There is no way you can lose eternal life. You are held in the omnipotent hands of Christ. And He loves you so much, He put a double on it: divine double omnipotence! We’re held securely in the hands of Christ as we are held securely in the hands of the Father. You are secure in Him. You can’t pluck yourself out of His hand. If so, your salvation is based on you.  –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
