Scripture at Sunrise 6.4.09

Wednesday Night Recap (6.3.09)

“Consequently, He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”  -Hebrews 7:25

-Ask any Christian, “Are you saved?” and their reply would be Yes.
-Ask, “Who saved you?”  God in Christ.
-Ask, “Does He save everyone?”  No.
-Ask, “Did He save you accidentally or did He do it on purpose?”  God saves some people and He does it on purpose. 
-It is the power of God that saves and keeps us.  It is not the power of human choice or decision, or work or fleshly action that results in salvation.  John 1:12-13
-It’s His purpose.  2 Timothy 1:9, Ephesians 1:9, Ephesians 1:1-11; What God does, He does for His glory. 
-John 10:27-30.  Eternal life is given.  Eternal must always be.  This life deposited in the believer is the life that has always existed and which is for all eternity.  God’s Name and His glory is at stake. 
-Romans 8:29 speaks of whom He foreknew…doesn’t talk about anything anybody did but He foreknows us, nothing outside of God that caused Him to love you.  Who He foreknew, He predestinated (predetermined) to be conformed to His Son.  Why conformed?  That He might be firstborn (Christ is ultimately glorified)…called…justifcation…glorified.  All for the glory of His Son.  Philippians 2:9-11; Revelation 5:11-14
-We are completely dependant upon Him for our salvation.  If dependant upon our works to live up to His standard, we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God.  Where is boasting?  Romans 3:27; Ephesians 2:9
-1 Corinthians 3:11 “for” links verse 11 with previous.  Foundation was laid (Jesus Christ, Solid Rock not shifting sands_ and the responsibility of others to build upon it.  Use materials worhty of the foundation.  (relates to our service). 
vs. 13- service will be tested in that day; 1 Corinthians 4:5 (fire=judgment)  Only He can judge the motives; Rewards: 2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, Revelation 2:10, 1 Peter 5:4, Revelation 3:11, 1 Corinthians 9:25, 2 Corinthians 5:10, 1 Corinthians 3:8
-1 Corinthians 3:15- the fire shows the quality of work.  Corinth had many problems
-1 Corinthians 6:11- sin in life, but saved.  Not talking about loss of salvation, but loss of reward.  One doesn’t gain salvation by good works nor does he lose it by bad works. 
-Salvation is secure because of Who God is and not who we are.  Jeremiah 31:3, Malachi 3:6
-He that hath begun a good work in you shall perform it unto the day of Christ Jesus. 

T-Total Depravity
U-Unconditional Election
L-Limited Atonement
I-Irresistible Grace
P-Perserverance of the Saints

Hebrews 7:25

Scripture @ Sunrise 2.2.09

It was another great Sunday at New Life Baptist Church (always in the Lord)!  Here’s your brief recap, which by no means does the day any justice.  Get a CD if you had to miss it for some reason. 

Devotion (Steve Dawson)
The Character of Genuine Saving Faith
There’s not a verse that sums it up, they’re all sooooo good! 

Sunday School (Steve Dawson)
“It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it would be expedient that one man should die for the people.” -John 18:14
The reason Christ was born was to die.

Sunday Morning Sermon (Pastor Steve Wainright)
“So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.  May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…” -Colossians 1:10-11
*Know God’s Word if you want to be filled with the knowledge of His will.
*How can we walk worthy of God? (I John 2:6; I Peter 2:21)

Sunday Evening Sermon (Pastor Steve Wainright)
“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility…”  -Ephesians 2:14
*Tabernacle: Courtyard (People)>Holy Place (Priest)>Most Holy Place (High Priest)
God tore down the middle wall through Christ!
*Before you can approach GOd, you have to deal with your sin. 
*The altar represents God’s holiness, His justice, His hate for sin.
*At the altar, you’d probably see blood, representing God’s wrath. 
*There must be a sacrifice to approach God. 
*Christ is the propitiation for our sins. (Romans 3:25)
*The Perfect Lamb became the Perfect Priest and also became the Perfect Altar!
*Since He has done so much for us, how then shall we live?  (Romans 12:1) As living sacrifices. 

AMEN and amen!  Happy Monday!  :o)
