Scripture at Sunrise 04.14.2021

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” -2 Corinthians 5:7

God’s people have nothing to fear as long as they keep their eyes on the Lord. -Pastor Steve Wainright

(excerpt from 04/11/2021 Sermon “Dealing with Adversaries” from Ezra 4)

Scripture at Sunrise 04.13.2021

“Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body.” -Philippians 3:21

Often when we are racked with pain and unable to think or worship, we feel that this indeed is “the body of our humiliation,” and when we are tempted by the passions which rise from the flesh we do not think the word vile at all too vigorous a translation. Our bodies humble us; and that is about the best thing they do for us. Oh, that we were duly lowly, because our bodies ally us with animals and even link us with the dust!

But our Savior, the Lord Jesus, shall change all this. We shall be fashioned like His own body of glory. This will take place in all who believe in Jesus. By faith their souls have been transformed, and their bodies will undergo such a renewal as shall fit them for their regenerated spirits. How soon this grand transformation will happen we cannot tell; but the thought of it should help us to bear the trials of today and all the woes of the flesh. In a little while we shall be as Jesus now is. No more aching brows, no more swollen limbs, no more dim eyes, no more fainting hearts. The old man shall be no more a bundle of infirmities, nor the sick man a mass of agony. “Like unto his glorious body.” What an expression! Even our flesh shall rest in hope of such a resurrection!

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

Scripture at Sunrise 04.12.2021

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” -Hebrews 13:20-21

God is the God of peace. God  is never shaken by what man does. Nothing takes Him by surprise. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “Benediction for the Persecutedfrom Hebrews 13:20-21)

Scripture at Sunrise 03.25.2021

“Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” -Hebrews 12:14

We do not pray for a life set apart from suffering, we pray for a life set apart from sinning.

-Kevin DeYoung via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 03.24.2021

“But many of the priests and Levites and heads of fathers’ houses, old men who had seen the first house, wept with a loud voice when they saw the foundation of this house being laid, though many shouted aloud for joy, so that the people could not distinguish the sound of the joyful shout from the sound of the people’s weeping, for the people shouted with a great shout, and the sound was heard far away.” -Ezra 3:12-13

There was a generation gap in this passage. We need the wisdom of those who are older than us. We need the youthful vibrancy of those who are younger than us. -Pastor Steve Wainright

(excerpt from 03/21/2021 Sermon “Little is Much” from Ezra 3)

Scripture at Sunrise 03.23.2021

“I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not.” -Isaiah 42:16

Think of the infinitely glorious Jehovah acting as a Guide to the blind! What boundless condescension does this imply! A blind man cannot find a way which he does not know. Even when he knows the road, it is hard for him to traverse it; but a road which he has not known is quite out of the question for his unguided feet. Now, we are by nature blind as to the way of salvation, and yet the Lord leads us into it and brings us to Himself, and then opens our eyes. As to the future, we are all of us blind and cannot see an hour before us; but the Lord Jesus will lead us even to our journey’s end. Blessed be His name!

We cannot guess in which way deliverance can possibly come to us, but the Lord knows, and He will lead us till we shall have escaped every danger. Happy are those who place their hand in that of the great Guide and leave their way and themselves entirely with Him. He will bring them all the way; and when He has brought them home to glory and has opened their eyes to see the way by which He has led them, what a song of gratitude will they sing unto their great Benefactor! Lord, lead Thy poor blind child this day, for I know not my way!

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

Scripture after Sunset 03.22.2021

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12

Come to Jesus. It’s not Jesus plus your prayers. It’s not Jesus plus taking communion or baptism. It’s not Jesus plus walking an aisle. The only salvation is through Jesus Christ. It’s faith in Christ and what He has done for us.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Don’t Fallfrom Hebrews 13:7-14)

For the Glory of God
