Scripture at Sunrise 04.12.2022

“For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” -Jeremiah 31:34

When we know the Lord, we receive the forgiveness of sins. We know Him as the God of grace, passing by our transgressions. What a joyful discovery is this!

But how divinely is this promise worded: the Lord promises no more to remember our sins! Can God forget? He says He will, and He means what He says. He will regard us as though we had never sinned. The great atonement so effectually removed all sin that it is to the mind of God no more in existence. The believer is now in Christ Jesus, as accepted as Adam in his innocence; yea, more so, for he wears a divine righteousness, and that of Adam was but human.

The great Lord will not remember our sins so as to punish them, or so as to love us one atom the less because of them. As a debt when paid ceases to be a debt, even so doth the Lord make a complete obliteration of the iniquity of His people.

When we are mourning over our transgressions and shortcomings, and this is our duty as long as we live, let us at the same time rejoice that they will never be mentioned against us. This makes us hate sin. God’s free pardon makes us anxious never again to grieve Him by disobedience.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.29.2019

“Observe and hear all these words, which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the Lord thy God.” -Deuteronomy 12:28

Though salvation is not by the works of the law, yet the blessings which are promised to obedience are not denied to the faithful servants of God. The curses our Lord took away when He was made a curse for us, but no clause of blessing has been abrogated.

We are to note and listen to the revealed will of the Lord, giving our attention not to portions of it but to “all these words.” There must be no picking and choosing but an impartial respect to all that God has commanded. This is the road of blessedness for the Father and for His children. The Lord’s blessing is upon His chosen to the third and fourth generation. If they walk uprightly before Him, He will make all men know that they are a seed which the Lord has blessed. No blessing can come to us or ours through dishonesty or double dealing. The ways of worldly conformity and unholiness cannot bring good to us or ours. It will go well with us when we go well before God. If integrity does not make us prosper, knavery will not. That which gives pleasure to God will bring pleasure to us.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.19.2018

For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He may have mercy on all.“-Romans 11:30-32
Of all the attributes of God, mercy is one of the crowning attributes. God uses even disobedience to display His mercy, whereby He gets all the more glory. Mercy requires sinfulness or shortcomings. We all stand in need of the mercy of God. If God were not merciful, none of us would be standing here today. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunset 5.8.2017

Sunday Morning | Two Masters. Two Ends. | Romans 6:17-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.” -Romans 6:17-18

A sign of a true believer is obedience from the heart. The Gospel is what God uses to change a heart marked by disobedience to obedience. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 11.25.2013

Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 14:47-15:11
The word of the Lord came to Samuel: “I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me and has not performed My commandments.” And Samuel was angry, and he cried to the Lord all night. -1 Samuel 15:10-11

Partial obedience is still disobedience. Saul did not fulfill God’s Word.

Saul was instructed to completely and utterly destroy the Amalekites. He was looking good in verses 4-7, but then in verses 8-9, Saul kept King Agag and all that he saw that was best alive. He spared the best of evil, but even the best of evil is still evil.
