Scripture at Sunrise 8.6.2020

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” -Micah 6:8

Everyone is . . . tired. Or worried. Or angry. Or sad. Or fearful. Or hurting. Or something. You be the one who lowers the volume and calms the situation, who smiles kindly, who says “I’m sorry” with no sarcasm, who shows them grace. You be the face of Jesus to them. -Hershael York via Twitter

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” -2 Peter 3:18

If sanctification is progressive, shouldn’t Christians grow kinder, more relentlessly gracious, more lavishly loving as we age? I so desperately want to do this well and bless, encourage, and grace others rather than rant and rage. -Hershael York via Twitter

If the gospel I preach on Sunday is powerful enough to promise heaven for us, surely it can permeate our home during the week. -Hershael York via Twitter

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. -1 Peter 5:8

Satan wants us lazy–substitute text messages for conversations, FB friendships for relationships, porn for intimacy, religion for Christ. -Hershael York via Twitter

“And He said to all, ‘If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.'” -Luke 9:23

Jesus told us to take up a cross to follow Him, yet we whine when it gives us a splinter. -Hershael York via Twitter
