Scripture at Sunrise 9.21.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor J. Anthony Vance | How God Saves Sinners | John 1:1-13
“But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” -John 1:12-13


We are not children of God by attainment. It is not merited, worked for, or earned. We do not deserve to be called children of God. Becoming a child of God is a matter of God giving you something, not you earning it.

Scripture at Sunrise 3.24.2014

Sunday Evening | Pastor Anthony Vance | 1 John 3:10-18
“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death.” -1 John 3:14

It is supernaturally natural that members of the same spiritual family should love one another. God’s children are known by their actions and affections. You love, not to be a child of God, but because you are His child. Children of God love because they are partakers of the divine nature–God is lives in them and God is love.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.8.2013

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” -1 John 3:1

Forgiveness of sins would have been enough. Forgiveness with the promise to serve as a servant would have been enough. But He’s done so much more: we’ve been made sons and daughters of God. He loves us!
