Scripture at Sunrise 4.8.2015

“And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” -Ephesians 5:2

“God tells us to walk in Christ’s love, but we can only do that when we know how great His love is for us. Until you understand the atonement, you’ll never understand the love of God. The love of Christ is measured by the sin of of man, manifested by the sacrifice of Himself, and comprehended by the purpose of His death.” -J. Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 6.17.09

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”  -Colossians 3:2

“When someone sets his affections upon the cross and the love of Christ, he crucifies the world as a dead and undesirable thing.  The baits of sin lose their attraction and disappear.  Fill your affections with the cross of Christ and you will find no room for sin.”  -John Owen
