Scripture at Sunrise 03.28.2023

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:6-7

No care but all prayer. No anxiety but much joyful communion with God. Carry your desires to the Lord of your life, the guardian of your soul. Go to Him with two portions of prayer and one of fragrant praise. Do not pray doubtfully but thankfully. Consider that you have your petitions, and therefore thank God for His grace. He is giving you grace; give Him thanks, Hide nothing. Allow no want to lie rankling in your bosom; “make known your requests.” Run not to man. Go only to your God, the Father of Jesus, who loves you in Him.

This shall bring you God’s own peace. You shall not be able to understand the peace which you shall enjoy. It will enfold you in its infinite embrace. Heart and mind through Christ Jesus shall be steeped in a sea of rest. Come life or death, poverty, pain, slander, you shall dwell in Jesus above every rolling wind or darkening cloud. Will you not obey this dear command?

Yes, Lord, I do believe thee; but, I beseech thee, help mine unbelief.

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

Scripture after Sunrise 9.21.2020

“Then they brought out the king’s son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king.” -2 Chronicles 23:11

The king must be made known! Even so, in our day and time, there are many people who are controlled by Satan’s rule. It is our responsibility to make the King known. There are people who do not know that there is a King upon the throne: the Lord Jesus Christ. We must make Him known!

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | That the World May Know | 1 Kings 8:12-66
“…that all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God; there is no other.” -1 Kings 8:60

 

The purpose of our existence is to make God known–to make Him famous, that all the world may know that the Lord is God.

May our lives show forth the joy of the Lord that is our strength, that all the world may know that He is God.

Scripture @ Sunrise 12.17.08

“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” -Mark 8:35

“The task of God’s people is to make known the good news of God’s renewed reign over the entirety of creation. Christ’s kingly authority extends over the whole world. God’s mission is equally comprehensive: to embody the good news that Jesus again rules over marriage and family, business and politics, art and athletics, leisure and scholarship, sex and technology. Since the gospel is a gospel of the kingdom, that mission is as wide as creation.”

– Michael Goheen and Albert M. Wolters, Creation Regained (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Eerdmans, 2005)
