Scripture at Sunrise 7.10.2018

“Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come. For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favor the dust thereof.” -Psalm 102:13-14

Yes, our prayers for the church will be heard. The set time is come. We love the prayer meetings, and the Sunday school, and all the services of the Lord’s house. We are bound in heart to all the people of God and can truly say,

There’s not a lamb in all thy flock
I would disdain to feed
There’s not a foe before whose face
I’d fear thy cause to plead.

If this is the general feeling, we shall soon enjoy times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord. Our assemblies will be filled, saints will be revived, and sinners will be converted. This can only come of the Lord’s mercy; but it will come, and we are called upon to expect it. The time, the set time, is come. Let us bestir ourselves. Let us love every stone of our Zion, even though it may be fallen down. Let us treasure up the least truth, the least ordinance, the least believer, even though some may despise them as only so much dust. When we favor Zion, God is about to favor her. When we take pleasure in the Lord’s work, the Lord Himself will take pleasure in it.

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

Scripture at Sunrise 7.9.2018

“Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.” -Acts 9:31

These churches had unity, they worked on building each other up, they were in motion/action (not standing still) walking in the fear of the Lord, and they had the comfort of the Holy Spirit. We should want the Holy Spirit to permeate everything we do, say, and think. 
There will be growth in the local church if you have these things. You can’t stop it. It doesn’t talk about how fast they grew–churches grow at different rates–but they grew! –excerpts from Bro. Mike Creiglow’s Sunday Morning Sermon (missionary to Brazil)

Our God is in the heavens; He does all that He pleases. -Psalm 115:3

There is nothing in your life outside of the scope of God’s almighty power, there is nothing beyond the reach of His loving care. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 7.4.2018

Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate our independence this weekend, let us remember those who sacrificed so much that we might have freedom. And most importantly, let us worship the One who sacrificed the most that we might be eternally free.

“If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” -2 Chronicles 7:14

“…I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord’s side.” -Abraham Lincoln

Scripture at Sunrise 7.3.2018

“He will be my guide even unto death.” -Psalm 48:14

We need a guide. Sometimes we would give all that we have to be told exactly what to do and where to turn. We are willing to do right, but we do not know which one of two roads we are to follow. Oh, for a guide!

The Lord our God condescends to serve us as guide. He knows the way and will pilot us along it till we reach our journey’s end in peace. Surely we do not desire more infallible direction. Let us place ourselves absolutely under His guidance, and we shall never miss our way. Let us make Him our God, and we shall find Him our guide. If we follow His law we shall not miss the right road of life, provided we first learn to lean upon Him in every step that we take.

Our comfort is that as He is our God forever and ever, He will never cease to be with us as our guide. “Even unto death” will He lead us, and then we shall dwell with Him eternally and go no more out forever. This promise of divine guidance involves lifelong security: salvation at once, guidance unto our last hour, and then endless blessedness. Should not each one seek this in youth, rejoice in it in middle life, and repose in it in old age? This day let us look up for guidance before we trust ourselves out-of-doors.

Scripture at Sunrise 7.2.2018

“I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.” -Romans 15:14
We too often criticize people rather than admonishing and counseling them. As a child of God, you have the ability to share God’s Word with with a struggling Christian to help build them up. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
