Scripture at Sunrise 5.7.2019

“And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers.” -Deuteronomy 13:17

Israel must conquer idolatrous cities and destroy all the spoil, regarding all that had been polluted by idolatry as an accursed thing to be burned with fire. Now, sin of all sorts must be treated by Christians in the same manner. We must not allow a single evil habit to remain. It is now war to the knife with sins of all sorts and sizes, whether of the body, the mind, or the spirit. We do not look upon this giving up of evil as deserving mercy, but we regard it as a fruit of the grace of God, which we would on no account miss.

When God causes us to have no mercy on our sins, then He has great mercy on us. When we are angry with evil, God is no more angry with us. When we multiply our efforts against iniquity, the Lord multiplies our blessings. The way of peace, of growth, of safety, of joy in Christ Jesus will be found by following out these words: “There shall nought of the cursed thing cleave to thine hand.” Lord, purify me this day. Compassion, prosperity, increase, and joy will surely be given to those who put away sin with solemn resolution.

Scripture at Sunrise 6.8.09

Sunday School | 1 Peter 1: 1-12 | Steve Dawson
“…to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in Heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”  -1 Peter 1:4-5
We are spiritual exiles (vs. 1) from our inheritance and being together with Christ (vs. 4).  We are exiled from where our heart truly is. 

“In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”  -1 Peter 1:6-7
Suffering puts HIM in perspective.  Jesus is revealed through suffering.

Sunday Morning | Colossians 3:15 | Steve Wainright
“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.” -Colossians 3:15
-The peace of God comes from having peace with God.
-If you can’t change the place you’re in, you need to change your mind. 
-“rule”=umpire, has final decision> Let the peace of God be the final say-so in your life.
How do we do that?
-Be thankful.  Don’t complain
-Bless Him for the mercies and the miseries.
-As we have thankful hearts, the peace of God rules in our hearts.

Sunday Evening | Exodus 33:1-11 | Steve Wainright
“Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; but I will not go up among you, lest I consume you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked people.”  -Exodus 33:3
God promised His blessing, but not His presence.  His presence brings accountability. 
-What do you want more of: God’s blessings or God Himself? 
-Do you desire the Blesser more than the blessings?
