Scripture at Sunrise 8.7.2019

“They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)…” -Psalm 49:6-8

Consider how precious a soul must be, when both God and the devil are after it. -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.18.2019


“Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” -Romans 2:4

God’s kindness leads us to repentance. What God accomplishes with kindness, we are not going to achieve with snarkiness. –Sam Allberry

Scripture at Sunrise 7.17.2019

“Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.” -Galatians 2:16

“It’s not the strength of your faith that saves you, but the strength of Him upon whom you rely.” -Charles Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.17.2019

“Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.” -2 Timothy 2:8-10

Paul had made the Gospel his own. It was something that had consumed his life. Have you personalized the Gospel in your life?

Scripture at Sunrise 5.22.2019

“…for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” -Philippians 4:11-13

The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances. -Elisabeth Elliot

Scripture at Sunrise 5.20.2019

“To Timothy, my beloved child…” -2 Timothy 1:2

Invest your life in other people. If you have been called to mentor someone, love them, pray for them, and invest your life in them. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
