Scripture at Sunrise 10.3.2012

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1

“Beauty was created by God for a purpose: to give us the experience of wonder. And wonder, in turn, is intended to lead us to the ultimate human expression and privilege: worship. Beauty is both a gift and a map. It is a gift to be enjoyed and a map to be followed back to the source of the beauty with praise and thanksgiving.” -Steve DeWitt in Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything (Credo House, 2012, page 91)

Scripture at Sunrise 6.10.09

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” -1 John 2:15

“In the end, the sum of all beauty is Christ, and the sin of all worldliness is to diminish our capacity to see Him and be satisfied in Him and show Him compellingly to a perishing world.”  -John Piper

Scripture after Sunrise 3.30.09

This is a special after-the-sunrise post summarizing last night’s message from Exodus 30

The imagery of the Old Testament shows more deeply the beauty of our Lord and Savior in His redemptive work. 

vs. 11-16- We are bought with a price. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
vs. 17-21- We are sanctified and meet [useful, profitable] for the Master’s use.  (2 Timothy 2:21)
vs. 22-33- We are anointed by His Spirit. 

Are you devoted to His service?  Is what you have consecrated to Him?
