Scripture at Sunrise 5.28.2018

“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” -Philippians 2:5-8
There should be no task too small for the child of God to humble themselves and do it. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 11.13.09

“These things I have spoken to you, while I am still with you.  But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”  -John 14:25-27
Blessed Quietness
Verse 1
Joys are flowing like a river,
since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
makes the trusting heart His home.Chorus
Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
what assurance in my soul,
on the stormy sea, Jesus speaks peace to me,
and the billows cease to roll.

Verse 2
Bringing life and health and gladness,
all around this heavenly Guest,
banished unbelief and sadness,
changed our weariness to rest.


Verse 3
Like the rain that falls from heaven,
like the sunlight from the sky,
so the Holy Ghost is given,
coming on us from on high.


Verse 4
See a fruitful field is growing,
blessed fruit of righteousness;
and the streams of life are flowing
in the lonely wilderness.


Verse 5
What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place!

On the stormy Sea of Galilee, Jesus commanded the winds and waves, “Peace, be still” (Mark 4:39) and immediately there was calm.  And later in the upper room, as Jesus told His disciples that He would leave them, He promised them the Holy Spirit and peace.
Manie Payne, born in Carlow, Ireland, was a Christian, but she did not know peace.  She struggled with her sinful nature until she bgan to experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit.  This is the “blessed quietness” that she wrote about.  Once that occurred, she was so happy she could hardly contain herself.  Indeed, joy was flowing like a river in her life.
Later she married T.P. Ferguson and founded Peniel Missions, with branches in Egypt, China, and the west coast of the United States.
