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.

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

Scripture after Sunset 9.7.2020

“Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri. He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly. Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the Lord like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction.” -2 Chronicles 22:2-4

When it comes to your personal life and decisions you make, do not compromise in godliness. Don’t compromise your principles or morals to make someone else accept you and like you.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 22 – “No Compromise”)

Scripture at Sunrise 9.3.2020

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” -1 Corinthians 10:31

The Goal: To be devoted to God and driven by a passion for Him—That every breath and beat of the heart might be for His glory; that every thought, disposition, word, and activity might be conformed to His will; that every accomplishment might find its end in His good pleasure. -Paul Washer via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.2.2020

“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” -John 17:14-16

“Modern Christians hope to save the world by being like it, but it will never work. The church’s power over the world springs out of her unlikeness to it, never from her integration into it.”  -A.W. Tozer

Scripture at Sunrise 9.1.2020

“If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love.” -John 15:10

These things cannot be parted—abiding in obedience and abiding in the love of Jesus. A life under the rule of Christ can alone prove that we are the objects of our Lord’s delight. We must keep our Lord’s command if we would bask in His love. If we live in sin we cannot live in the love of Christ. Without the holiness which pleases God we cannot please Jesus. He who cares nothing for holiness knows nothing of the love of Jesus.

Conscious enjoyment of our Lord’s love is a delicate thing. It is far more sensitive to sin and holiness than mercury is to cold and heat. When we are tender of heart and careful in thought, lip, and life to honor our Lord Jesus, then we receive tokens of His love without number. If we desire to perpetuate such bliss we must perpetuate holiness. The Lord Jesus will not hide His face from us unless we hide our face from Him. Sin makes the cloud which darkens our Sun: if we will be watchfully obedient and completely consecrated we may walk in the light, as God is in the light, and have as sure an abiding in the love of Jesus as Jesus has in the love of the Father. Here is a sweet promise with a solemn “if,” Lord, let me have this “if” in my hand; for as a key it opens this casket.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 8.31.2020

“And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab to wife: and he wrought that which was evil in the eyes of the Lord.” -2 Chronicles 21:6

Ungodly company will corrupt you before you know it. Watch who you draw close to and who you associate with.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 21:1-20Consequences of Compromise)

Scripture at Sunrise 8.27.2020

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

Love is not merely one good thing among many, but the most excellent thing of all (I Cor.13:13). We must not only judge our orthodoxy by the standard of Scripture, but also our love. “We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren” (I Jn.3:14). -Paul Washer via Twitter
