Scripture at Sunrise 9.27.2017

“And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” -Philippians 1:6

God’s grace didn’t just save us and then leave us to try to make it to the end on our own, God’s grace sustains us daily and leads us home. –Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 7.12.2017

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. -2 Corinthians 12:9-10
No believer is too weak to be used mightily by God except those who are too dependent on their own strength. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 4.3.2017

Sunday Morning –  Have You Died to Sin?Romans 6:1-2 (Steve Wainright)
“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?” -Romans 6:1-2

Who God declares righteous, He also makes righteous. Is there evidence in your life of God creating holiness in you? Is there conviction when you do wrong and a desire to do right?

Scripture at Sunrise 3.29.2017

“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more…” -Romans 5:20
The law was given that sin would increase–it magnified sin. But God’s grace is bigger than all of that sin! There is no sin that can stop the grace of God from working.
The law teaches us to flee to the cross of Christ and look to His finished work. Sin is measured by the law, but you can’t measure God’s grace.

Scripture at Sunrise 3.20.2017

Sunday Morning Sermon Audio – Overabounding Grace | Romans 5:12-21 (Steve Wainright)
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 5:20-21

The law causes sin to increase. The law cannot change a person’s heart. The law shines the light on your disobedience. Sin might bring pleasure for a season, but what sin is actually doing is working death in you.
The grace of God is greater than all our sin. Where sin was overflowing, grace overflowed exceedingly above and beyond. If you believe He died for your sins, there should be nothing in your past that can haunt you. It’s not about where you’ve been, but where you’re at.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.20.2016

Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power. -Psalm 110:3

Blessed be the God of grace that it is so! He has a people whom He has chosen from of old to be His peculiar portion. These by nature have wills as stubborn as the rest of the froward sons of Adam; but when the day of His power comes and grace displays its omnipotence, they become willing to repent and to believe in Jesus. None are saved unwillingly, but the will is made sweetly to yield itself. What a wondrous power is this, which never violates the will and yet rules it! God does not break the lock, but He opens it by a master key which He alone can handle.

Now are we willing to be, to do, or to suffer as the Lord wills. If at any time we grow rebellious, He has but to come to us with power, and straightway we run in the way of His commands with all our hearts. May this be a day of power with me as to some noble effort for the glory of God and the good of my fellowmen! Lord, I am willing; may I not hope that this is a day of Thy power? I am wholly at Thy disposal; willing, yea, eager, to be used of Thee for Thy holy purposes. O Lord, let me not have to cry, “To will is present with me, but how to perform that which I would, I find not”; but give me power as Thou givest me will.
