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….

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

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.

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“)

Scripture at Sunrise 3.25.2020

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16

Imagine sending your son into an infected environment in which he would absorb in himself the deadly sickness so that those who were sick could be made well. “God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son . . . “ -Nancy Guthrie

Scripture at Sunrise 4.17.2019

They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. -John 20:13-14

The first witness to the Resurrection of Christ was Mary Magdalene, a woman whose life had been transformed (7 demons had previously possessed her) and who greatly loved the Lord Jesus Christ.

We see her weeping at the tomb of Jesus. There is no thought of God in her mind at this point. Death had brought her despondency. Her mind rushed to a quick judgment and wrong perceptions.

Our vision is often blurred like Mary Magdalene’s and we don’t see the big picture.

When you lose sight of Christ in your life, you will start making bad judgments. Your life will be out of focus. When you lose sight of God’s sovereignty, you will suffer. Are you looking beyond the cross and the grave? -excerpts from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon
