Scripture at Sunrise 5.14.2020

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.” -Proverbs 1:7

Corporate worship is designed to cause the fear of God to overwhelm and disarm any other fear that would grip your heart divert your life. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 5.13.2020

“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

If you look to circumstances in your life to determine if God loves you, you will continually wonder.

But if you look to the cross, you will have no reason to doubt.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.12.2020

“Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof; so he that waiteth on his master shall be honored.” -Proverbs 27:18

He who tends the fig tree has figs for his pains, and he who waits on a good master has honor as his reward. Truly the Lord Jesus is the very best of masters, and it is an honor to be allowed to do the least act for His sake. To serve some lords is to watch over a crab tree and eat the crabs as one’s wages; but to serve the Lord Jesus is to keep a fig tree of the sweetest figs. His service is in itself delight, continuance in it is promotion, success in it is blessedness below, and the reward for it is glory above.

Our greatest honors will be gathered in that season when the figs will be ripe, even in the next world. Angels who are now our servitors will bear us home when our day’s work is done. Heaven, where Jesus is, will be our honorable mansion, eternal bliss our honorable portion, and the Lord Himself our honorable companion. Who can imagine the full meaning of this promise: “He that waiteth on his master shall be honored”?

Lord, help me to wait upon my Master. Let me leave all idea of honor to the hour when Thou Thyself shalt honor me. May the Holy Spirit make me a lowly, patient worker and waiter!

[from Morning & Evening by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 5.11.2020

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear His voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness… -Hebrews 3:7-8

It is the Holy Spirit that was speaking in Psalm 95. The Holy Spirit was speaking in the book of Hebrews. It is the Holy Spirit that is speaking today. God’s voice hasn’t changed. He’s still speaking today. When God says something once, we ought to listen. If God says something twice, that means you’re not listening. When God says something three times, you better watch out, because God is emphasizing a pattern of behavior.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 3:7-11 What’s the Holy Spirit Saying?)
