Scripture at Sunrise 8.8.2019

ThursdayTheologicalTweet

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” -Psalm 16:11

“The devil’s substitute for joy is entertainment.” – L. Ravenhill
Joy comes when God fills you with an awareness of His goodness, even in the midst of terrible realities. Entertainment ushers you into a fantasy world that gives the illusion of happiness by escaping reality. -Garrett Kell via Twitter

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 8.6.2019

Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.” -Deuteronomy 1:21

There is a heritage of grace which we ought to be bold enough to win for our possession. All that one believer has gained is free to another. We may be strong in faith, fervent in love, and abundant in labor; there is nothing to prevent it; let us go up and take possession. The sweetest experience and the brightest grace are as much for us as for any of our brethren; Jehovah has set it before us; no one can deny our right; let us go up and possess it in His name.

The world also lies before us to be conquered for the Lord Jesus. We are not to leave any country or corner of it unsubdued. That slum near our house is before us, not to baffle our endeavors, but to yield to them. We have only to summon courage enough to go forward, and we shall win dark homes and hard hearts for Jesus. Let us never leave the people in a lane or alley to die because we have not enough faith in Jesus and His gospel to go up and possess the land. No spot is too benighted, no person so profane as to be beyond the power of grace. Cowardice, begone! Faith marches to the conquest.

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