Scripture at Sunrise 8.3.2020

“For Thy mercy is great above the heavens: and Thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.” -Psalm 108:4

Mercy is not getting what we deserve. God doesn’t have to show mercy, but He does. That shows the goodness of God!

-Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Evening Sermon from  Hebrews 7:20-28 Mercy)

Scripture at Sunrise 11.12.2019

“My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, saith the Lord.” -Jeremiah 31:4

Note the “my” which comes twice: “My people shall be satisfied with my goodness.”

The kind of people who are satisfied with God are marked out as God’s own. He is pleased with them, for they are pleased with Him. They call Him their God, and He calls them His people; He is satisfied to take them for a portion, and they are satisfied with Him for their portion. There is a mutual communion of delight between God’s Israel and Israel’s God.

These people are satisfied. This is a grand thing. Very few of the sons of men are ever satisfied, let their lot be what it may; they have swallowed the horse-leech, and it continually cries, “Give! give!” Only sanctified souls are satisfied souls. God Himself must both convert us and content us.

It is no wonder that the Lord’s people should be satisfied with the goodness of their Lord. Here is goodness without mixture, bounty without stint, mercy without chiding, love without change, favor without reserve. If God’s goodness does not satisfy us, what will? What! are we still groaning? Surely there is a wrong desire within if it be one which God’s goodness does not satisfy.

Lord, I am satisfied. Blessed be Thy name.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 4.29.2019

For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? -1 Corinthians 4:7

Everything we have is because of God’s goodness. Everything we don’t have is also because of God’s goodness. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
