Scripture at Sunrise 3.9.2020

“…you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” -1 Peter 2:5

Every stone was cut and fitted before it was even placed in the Temple. We are living stones. Before you even knew Christ, God was chiseling you, shaping you to fit into His body. Just as God used David to influence King Hiram of Tyre, He uses people to help form and construct your life, to shape who you are and be fitted for service.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 2:1-18 — “Solomon’s Greatest Feat“)


Scripture at Sunrise 10.28.2019

“Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee. And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying, Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in…” -1 Chronicles 7:2-4

What do you do if the Lord says “No” to what you feel you need to do? What happens if you cannot fulfill the desire in your heart? If you can’t do what you have desired, do like David and help those who can.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.9.2019

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” -1 Samuel 30:6

Encourage yourself in the Lord. Your circumstances may not change, but your attitude towards them will. -excerpts from Joshua Wilson’s Sunday Evening Sermon: “When All Else Fails” from 1 Samuel 30:1-6 (Listen here)

Scripture at Sunrise 7.9.2019

Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.” -Psalm 101:6

If David spoke thus, we may be sure that the Son of David will be of the same mind. Jesus looks out for faithful men, and He fixes His eyes upon them, to observe them, to bring them forward, to encourage them, and to reward them. Let no true-hearted man think that he is overlooked; the King Himself has His eye upon him.

There are two results of this royal notice. First we read, “That they may dwell with me.” Jesus brings the faithful into His house, He sets them in His palace, He makes them His companions, He delights in their society. We must be true to our Lord, and He will then manifest Himself to us. When our faithfulness costs us most, it will be best rewarded; the more furiously men reject, the more joyfully will our Lord receive us.

Next, he says of the sincere man, “He shall serve me.” Jesus will use for His own glory those who scorn the tricks of policy and are faithful to Himself, His Word, and His cross. These shall be in His royal retinue, the honored servants of His Majesty. Communion and usefulness are the wages of faithfulness. Lord make me faithful that I may dwell with Thee and serve Thee.
