“Then he released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered Him to be crucified.” -Matthew 27:26

“Give up your chains, pick up your cross, and follow Jesus.” -Chandler Dawson (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “The Mock Trial of Jesus” from John 18:28-19:15)

Scripture at Sunrise 9.15.2014

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 23:44-49 | Audio
Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!” -Luke 23:47

The Cross: The greatest injustice ever done by mankind, but the greatest justice ever done for mankind.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.11.2014

Sunday Morning| Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 23:13-25
“The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you…” -Acts 3:13-14

God, in His love and mercy, preached a message of grace through Peter to the very people who crucified Jesus…and many believed (Acts 4:4)! How great is the love of God?

The innocent for the guilty. He takes upon Himself our sins and we become His perfect righteousness.

Scripture @ Sunrise 2.9.09

One of those Sundays where my notes don’t do anything justice!  How do you narrow so many good verses into the one that sums up the point that hit me hardest?  I don’t know.  I can’t, but I tried. 

Sunday School
John 19: The Death of Christ
“Behold the man upon the cross, my guilt upon His shoulders, ashamed I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers.  It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished.  His dying breath has brought me life.  I know that it is finished!!!!” -from “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us”

Sunday Morning

“…giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.  He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”  –Colossians 1:12-14

I am thankful I am in Christ, qualified, delivered, transferred, redeemed, justified, and kept for the glory of God

Sunday Evening
“Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…” -Isaiah 49:16
(This was in reference to the stones worn by the High Priest…in relation to Jesus our High Priest!  You’ll just have to listen to it!)

What a blessing to have the Stantons there for the evening service.  It was their last service in the States before they return to Peru on Thursday after a long, hard year where they have learned to trust God even more.  Oh, the excitement in their faces was priceless!  I wanted to bottle it up (or go with them…you know)!
