Scripture at Sunrise 4.12.2017

“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” -Romans 6:3-4
If you grasp the concept that you’re in Christ, how can you continue to live in sin? If He dwells in you and He is holy, how do you live? What is your life marked by–a life of sin or a life of righteousness?

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 8.3.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Sanctification: Is it of God or Men? Yes. | Philippians 2:12-13
“…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” -Philippians 2:12-13

Our sanctification–growing in holiness–is all of us and all of God. We must put forth diligent effort in our walk with God, but realize that it’s God who is working mightily within us.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.5.2014

The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. -Psalm 37:31

Put the law into the heart, and the whole man is right. This is where the law should be; for then it lies, like the tables of stone in the ark, in the place appointed for it. In the head it puzzles, on the back it burdens, in the heart it upholds.

What a choice word is here used, “the law of his God”! When we know the Lord as our own God His law becomes liberty to us. God with us in covenant makes us eager to obey His will and walk in His commands. Is the precept my Father’s precept? Then I delight in it.

We are here guaranteed that obedient-hearted man shall be sustained in every step that he takes. He will do that which is right, and he shall therefore do that which is wise. Holy action is always the most prudent, though it may not at the time seem to be so, We are moving along the great highroad of God’s providence and grace when we keep to the way of His law. The Word of God has never misled a single soul yet; its plain directions to walk humbly, justly, lovingly, and in the fear of the Lord are as much words of wisdom to make our way prosperous as rules of holiness to keep our garments clean. He walks surely who walks righteously.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.28.2014

“Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” -Hebrews 12:14

I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him – Charles H. Spurgeon via Twitter


Scripture at Sunrise 8.22.2012

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” -Romans 12:2

Only through God’s Word are our minds remolded and our values renewed…God’s Word must be so strongly fixed in our minds that it becomes the dominant influence in our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions. -Jerry Bridges in “The Pursuit of Holiness
