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

Sunday Morning Sermon Audio: God’s Sovereign, Everlasting, Sacrificial Love | Romans 5:6-8 (Steve Wainright)
“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

Christ died for the ungodly. When we were unable to come to God, God came to man. God sent His only Son to die for people who were still His enemies. His love is not dependent on you or anything you’ve done (or are going to do)…it’s based upon Him alone–God is love. What assurance!

Sunday Morning Sermon: Experiencing Assurance | Romans 5:5 | Steve Wainright
and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” -Romans 5:5

It is only the Spirit of God pouring the love of God into the heart of a believer that can make them love the unlovable.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.30.2017

Sunday Morning Sermon: Don’t Lose Sight of Hope | Romans 5:3-5 | Steve Wainright
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

When you lose sight of the end prize, you lose heart and become discouraged. When your focus is on the goal, you lose sight of your sorrow. Through suffering, our faith is being tested and strengthened. God is shaping your character and conforming you into the image of His Son.
