Scripture at Sunrise 1.9.2017

Sunday Evening Sermon: Genuine Faith | John 4:46-54 | Anthony Vance
“The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.” -John 4:53

The greatest demonstration of the nobleman’s faith was that he didn’t just believe, but wanted others to believe also. Oh that God would grant households of faith. Go and tell them what He has done!

Scripture at Sunrise 8.5.2013

And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God. -Luke 13:13

This outcast woman was bent over for 18 years, but she had a desire to hear the Word of God being taught, so she went to the synagogue. In such pitiful condition, it would have been easy for her to make an excuse to stay home from the synagogue, but if she had, she would have missed a blessing. Jesus took initiative and touched her. He showed her grace and healed her in order to glorify God.

Jesus reaches out in mercy to the undeserving and freely gives salvation by His grace.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.14.2012

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright
Luke 5:12-16 | Sermon Audio

While He was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy. And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged Him, “Lord, if You will, You can make me clean.” Luke 5:12

This man full of leprosy is the perfect illustration of us as sinners.

“The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but bruises and sores and raw wounds; they are not pressed out or bound up or softened with oil.” [Isaiah 1:5-6]

This man who had no hope realized that his only hope is in Christ. He humbled himself, fell down, and worshipped at Jesus’ feet, acknowledging that Jesus had the power to heal him, but asked for His mercy so he could be cleansed.

Jesus had the power and compassion. There is no one beyond hope when Jesus is involved. He restored parts that had disappeared and He does the same thing in salvation. When we were dead in sins, He made us alive…with life to the FULL!

The leprous man who had been healed couldn’t keep it in. He was disobedient to Christ’s command to be silent about the miracle. But we are called to blab about what Jesus has done! Blaze abroad the Gospel! Catch his fever!
