Scripture at Sunrise 11.14.2018

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

“People stand in need of faith, hope, and love: someone they can trust, something to live for, and someone to love them though they know everything about them.” -excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon from John 16:25-33

Scripture at Sunrise 11.12.2018

“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
Can we have peace in the midst of any trial? When we’re under pressure, facing “the big squeeze”, cheer up! Be of a strong heart. Take courage! Why? Because Jesus has overcome the world. He will never fail you. He will never leave you. He’s reliable. He can truly be trusted. He loves you unconditionally. He is your hope.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” -Hebrews 10:23-25

We’re a forgetful people whose hope too often fades, which is why we so desperately need to hear the gospel proclaimed to us every week. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 1.30.2017

Sunday Morning Sermon: Don’t Lose Sight of Hope | Romans 5:3-5 | Steve Wainright
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

When you lose sight of the end prize, you lose heart and become discouraged. When your focus is on the goal, you lose sight of your sorrow. Through suffering, our faith is being tested and strengthened. God is shaping your character and conforming you into the image of His Son.
