Scripture at Sunrise 1.30.2018

“And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest.” -Genesis 28:15

Do we need journeying mercies? Here are choice ones — God’s presence and preservation, In all places we need both of these, and in all places we shall have them if we go at the call of duty, and not merely according to our own fancy. Why should we look upon removal to another country as a sorrowful necessity when it is laid upon us by the divine will? In all lands the believer is equally a pilgrim and a stranger; and yet in every region the Lord is His dwelling place, even as He has been to His saints in all generations. We may miss the protection of an earthly monarch, but when God says, “I will keep thee,” we are in no real danger. This is a blessed passport for a traveler and a heavenly escort for an emigrant.

Jacob had never left his father’s room before; he had been a mother’s boy and not an adventurer llike his brother. Yet he went abroad, and God went with him. He had little luggage and no attendants; yet no prince ever journeyed with a nobler bodyguard. Even while he slept in the open field, angels watched over him, and the Lord God spoke to him. If the Lord bids us go, let us say with our Lord Jesus, “Arise, let us go hence.”

Sunday Evening Sermon: Genuine Faith | John 4:46-54 | Anthony Vance
“The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.” -John 4:53

The greatest demonstration of the nobleman’s faith was that he didn’t just believe, but wanted others to believe also. Oh that God would grant households of faith. Go and tell them what He has done!

“and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.” -Ephesians 6:19-20

Scripture at Sunrise 4.20.2016

“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” -Matthew 16:25-26

“Your perspective of earthly embers changes when you have been saved from an eternal inferno.” -David Platt at #T4G2016

Scripture at Sunrise 4.6.2016

“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.” -John 1:43-44

Who’s your Philip? And will you take him to the throne of grace, knowing that Philip’s only hope is Jesus? And will you ask Jesus to go find Philip–to call him and make him His own? -Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 3.28.2016

Sunday Evening Sermon Audio: He Brought Him to Jesus | John 1:40-42 | Pastor Anthony Vance
“He brought him to Jesus.” -John 1:42

Andrew demonstrated the priority of genuine discipleship and started with his family. He introduced his brother Peter to Jesus. Peter became a more prominent, public figure, but Andrew–through his private testimony–was used to bring him to Christ.

We may never be a Peter, but may we always be an Andrew!
