Scripture at Sunrise 7.17.2019

“Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.” -Galatians 2:16

“It’s not the strength of your faith that saves you, but the strength of Him upon whom you rely.” -Charles Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 2.11.2019

And He said to all, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. -Luke 9:23

The call of the cross demands that we deny ourselves daily, that we die to ourselves daily–die to our flesh and the desires of our flesh. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon


Scripture at Sunrise 2.4.2019

“And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.” -John 19:12

You either believe the truth or you are an enemy of truth. There is no middle ground. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon


Scripture at Sunrise 4.10.2013

“To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” -Colossians 1:27

Christ in heaven is our hope in glory, and Christ in the heart is our hope of glory. An anchor is useless unless fastened at both ends, and Christ has fastened one end in glory, which the Holy Ghost comes down and fastens the other end of the anchor in our hearts. In older times the anchor used to be brought in first and the ship came in afterward. So Christ has gone in as the forerunner within the veil, and we shall come in afterward. -A.J. Gordon

Scripture at Sunrise 8.25.2011

For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. -Romans 8:3-4

Never forget that what God required you couldn’t do…Christ did it for you…His grace is your hope. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple.”  -Psalm 27:4

The critical question for our generation— and for every generation — is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?  –John Piper, God is the Gospel
