Scripture at Sunrise 12.30.2021

But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. -Hebrews 1:8

Manger empty. Cross empty. Tomb empty. Throne occupied for eternity!

Scripture at Sunrise 12.14.2021

And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. ” -Revelation 21:5

Glory be to His name! All things need making new, for they are sadly battered and worn by sin. It is time that the old vesture was rolled up and laid aside, and that creation put on her Sunday suit. But no one else can make all things new except the Lord who made them at the first; for it needs as much power to make out of evil as to make out of nothing. Our Lord Jesus has undertaken the task, and He is fully competent for the performance of it. Already he has commenced His labor, and for centuries He has persevered in making new the hearts of men and the order of society. By and by He will make new the whole constitution of human government, and human nature shall be changed by His grace; and there shall come a day when the body shall be made new and raised like unto His glorious body.

What a joy to belong to a kingdom in which everything is being made new by the power of its King! We are not dying out: we are hastening on to a more glorious life. Despite the opposition of the powers of evil, our glorious Lord Jesus is accomplishing His purpose and making us, and all things about us, “new” and as full of beauty as when they first came from the hand of the Lord.

Scripture at Sunrise 04.22.2021

“For He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul He fills with good things.” -Psalm 107:9

The deepest longing of the human heart is not satisfied, by places, experiences or things, but by a person named, Jesus. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 04.20.2021

“The just shall live by faith.” -Romans 1:17

I shall not die, I can, I do, believe in the Lord my God, and this faith will keep me alive. I would be numbered among those who in their lives are just; but even if I were perfect I would not try to live by my righteousness; I would cling to the work of the Lord Jesus and still live by faith in Him and by nothing else. If I were able to give my body to be burned for my Lord Jesus, yet I would not trust in my own courage and constancy, but still would live by faith.

Were I a martyr at the stake
I’d plead my Saviour’s name;
Intreat a pardon for His sake,
And urge no other claim.

To live by faith is a far surer and happier thing than to live by feelings or by works, The branch, by living in the vine, lives a better life than it would live by itself, even if it were possible for it to live at all apart from the stem. To live by clinging to Jesus, by deriving all from Him, is a sweet and sacred thing. If even the most just must live in this fashion, how much more must I who am a poor sinner! Lord, I believe. I must trust Thee wholly. What else can I do? Trusting Thee is my life….

Scripture after Sunset 03.22.2021

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12

Come to Jesus. It’s not Jesus plus your prayers. It’s not Jesus plus taking communion or baptism. It’s not Jesus plus walking an aisle. The only salvation is through Jesus Christ. It’s faith in Christ and what He has done for us.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Don’t Fallfrom Hebrews 13:7-14)

Scripture at Sunrise 03.04.2021

“We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic.” – Numbers 11:5

Sin wants you to forget how much it costs.

“We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost us nothing.” – Num. 11:5

The Israelites longed to go back to Egypt because they looked on their former slavery with rose-colored glasses.

Sin assures you that its pain was worth its pleasure.

“For He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul He fills with good things.” -Psalm 107:9

Scripture at Sunrise 6.15.2020

“In the days of His flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. Although He was a son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.” -Hebrews 5:7-10

The audience was about to face severe persecution, so what does the writer write to them about? Their Great High Priest. The storm was coming and was coming stronger. The writer was showing by the Spirit of God that Christ is the sure and steady anchor.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon from  Hebrews 5:1-10 Our Great High Priest)


Scripture at Sunrise 3.30.2020

“But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.” -Hebrews 2:9

If you neglect the great salvation that is in Christ Jesus, you have no hope.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 2:5-10 — “But We See Jesus“)
