Scripture at Sunrise 6.7.2017

“When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, ‘Rabbi, when did You come here?’ Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His seal.'” -John 6:25-27
Jesus doesn’t always answer what you ask, but always responds with what you need. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.6.2017

“The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.” -Psalm 6:9

The experience here recorded is mine. I can set to my seal that God is true. In very wonderful ways He has answered the prayers of His servant many and many a time. Yes, and He is hearing my present supplication, and He is not turning away His ear from me. Blessed be His holy name!

What then? Why, for certain the promise which lies sleeping in the psalmist’s believing confidence is also mine. Let me grasp it by the hand of faith: “The Lord will receive my prayer.” He will accept it, think of it, and grant it in the way and time which His loving wisdom judges to be best. I bring my poor prayer in my hand to the great King, and He gives me audience and graciously receives my petition. My enemies will not listen to me, but my Lord will. They ridicule my tearful prayers, but my Lord does not; He receives my prayer into His ear and His heart.

What a reception this is for a poor sinner! We receive Jesus, and then the Lord receives us and our prayers for His Son’s sake. Blessed be that dear name which franks our prayers so that they freely pass even within the golden gates. Lord, teach me to pray, since Thou hearest my prayers.

Scripture at Sunrise 6.5.2017

Sunday Morning | Struggling but VictoriousRomans 7:24-8:1
“Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 7:24-8:1

The redeemed man still has the flesh and is still going to battle with the flesh, but we have victory because of what Jesus Christ has done! Though you struggle, there is no condemnation if you are in Christ Jesus. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.1.2017

ThursdayTheologicalTweet

“…You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” -Matthew 22:37

What the heart trusts, the mind justifies, the emotions desire, and the will carries out. Everything follows the heart. -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 5.31.2017

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” -Galatians 6:7-8
God’s Word gets blunt to show us how sinful sin is. When you prostitute yourself out to sin, it becomes your master and controls your life. False promises soon fade.
Sexual gratification lasts only for a moment, but leads to death, disease, and broken relationships. Sinning ultimately says that you’re not satisfied with God. -excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.30.2017

“Nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of Heaven.” -Matthew 26:64

Ah, Lord, Thou wast in Thy lowest state when before Thy persecutors Thou wast made to stand like a criminal! Yet the eyes of Thy faith could see beyond Thy present humiliation into Thy future glory. What words are these, “Nevertheless – hereafter!” I would imitate Thy holy foresight, and in the midst of poverty, or sickness, or slander, I also would say, “Nevertheless – hereafter.” Instead of weakness, Thou hast all power; instead of shame, all glory; instead of derision, all worship, Thy cross has not dimmed the splendor of Thy crown, neither has the spittle marred the beauty of Thy face. Say, rather, Thou are the more exalted and honored because of Thy sufferings.

So, Lord, I also would take courage from the “hereafter.” I would forget the present tribulation in the future triumph. Help thou me by directing me into Thy Father’s love and into Thine own patience, so that when I am derided for Thy name I may not be staggered but think more and more of the hereafter, and, therefore, all the less of today. I shall be with Thee soon and behold Thy glory. Wherefore, I am not ashamed but say in my inmost soul, “Nevertheless – hereafter.”
