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. -2 Corinthians 12:9

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.

The Plan from Heaven | John 3:14-15 | Anthony Vance
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life.” -John 3:14-15

Man has a sin problem and God’s judgment is death. The offenders did not come up with the solution, God did! The only solution is grace, seen in the lifting up the emblem of judgment. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.20.2016

“But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.)” -Romans 3:5

God’s grace is on display with the ugliness of man’s sin as the background. It pops–like when you see a piece of jewelry on black velvet.  -excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

The Temple Cleanser | John 2:12-17 | Anthony Vance
“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” -1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Just as Christ showed grace and mercy as He cleansed the temple by making the problem known, God came into the temple of my heart and overturned my tables, letting me know I was living wrong. What mercy! -Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 5.23.2016

Judged by Works | Romans 2:6-10 | Steve Wainright
“He will render to each one according to his works.” -Romans 2:6

God’s judgment is coming on man because of sin. Here He is laying down the standard and principles by which they will be judged.

In this passage, we take a look at how we are judged according to our works. We are judged according to the things we do in life. Does your life display obedience or disobedience? (This is not referring to salvation, but judgment. Salvation is all by God’s grace. We do not work for it; however, we do good things as a result of our salvation.)

We are born again to do good works. When we do good works, we glorify God–and that’s the whole purpose. A lot of times you don’t see the fruits of your labor in the midst of your labor, but be patient in well-doing.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.11.2016

The Grace of God at Work [audio]| Titus 2:11-14 | Bro. Jonathan Hunter
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” -Titus 2:11-14

God, by His grace, brings us all the way from being lost sinners to being like God and Christ forever in Heaven. Grace brings salvation from our sins. Grace instructs us in how to live less like the world and more like God. Grace will culminate all of God’s promises and will bring all of God’s work to completion. -Jonathan Hunter
