“Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” -Romans 13:10
“God wants to be loved, not to gain any reward for Himself, but to give to those who love Him an eternal reward–namely Himself.” Augustine via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 11.20.2017

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

At the root of all sin is a failure to love. Loving God and loving others sums up the whole law. Salvation is God sending His Son to die for your lack of love–either your failure to love God or love others–and giving you a heart to love. –excerpts from Ron Crisp’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 10.30.2017

“As it is written, ‘Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.'” -Romans 9:13

People ask why God would hate Esau? The bigger question is: why would God love Jacob? Even deeper, why would God love me?  –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 10.2.2017

Sunday Morning | Separation Impossible Romans 8:35-39

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. -Romans 8:35-37

Can anything separate us from the love of God? The circumstances Paul listed as possible separations actually draw the believer closer to Christ. These things may be bigger than us, but they are not greater than God. -excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 9.19.2017

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” -Zephaniah 3:17

What a word is this! Jehovah God in the center of His people in all the majesty of His power! This presence alone suffices to inspire us with peace and hope. Treasures of boundless might are stored in our Jehovah, and He dwells in His church; therefore may His people shout for joy.

We not only have His presence, but He is engaged upon His choice work of salvation. “He will save.” He is always saving: He takes His name of Jesus from it. Let us not fear any danger, for He is mighty to save.

Nor is this all. He abides evermore the same, He saves, He finds rest in loving, He will not cease to love. His love gives Him joy. He even finds a theme for song in His beloved. This is exceedingly wonderful. When God wrought creation He did not sing but simply said, “It is very good”; but when He came to redemption, then the sacred Trinity felt a joy to be expressed in song, Think of it, and be astonished! Jehovah Jesus sings a marriage song over His chosen bride. She is to Him His love, His joy, His rest, His song. O Lord Jesus, by Thine immeasurable love to us teach us to love Thee, to rejoice in Thee, and to sing unto Thee our life-psalm.

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” -Philippians 2:12-13

How Religion Works: If I obey, then God will love and accept me. The Gospel: I’m loved and accepted, therefore I wish to obey. -Tim Keller via Twitter
