Scripture at Sunset 5.8.2017

Sunday Morning | Two Masters. Two Ends. | Romans 6:17-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.” -Romans 6:17-18

A sign of a true believer is obedience from the heart. The Gospel is what God uses to change a heart marked by disobedience to obedience. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 5.23.2016

Judged by Works | Romans 2:6-10 | Steve Wainright
“He will render to each one according to his works.” -Romans 2:6

God’s judgment is coming on man because of sin. Here He is laying down the standard and principles by which they will be judged.

In this passage, we take a look at how we are judged according to our works. We are judged according to the things we do in life. Does your life display obedience or disobedience? (This is not referring to salvation, but judgment. Salvation is all by God’s grace. We do not work for it; however, we do good things as a result of our salvation.)

We are born again to do good works. When we do good works, we glorify God–and that’s the whole purpose. A lot of times you don’t see the fruits of your labor in the midst of your labor, but be patient in well-doing.

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever He tells you.” -John 2:5

Why is God worthy of our complete surrender? He’s infinitely wiser than we are. He’s sovereignly involved. He not only knows the future, but controls the future. -Anthony Vance in “What True Obedience Is”

Scripture at Sunrise 3.21.2016

Sunday Morning Sermon Audio:  A Renowned Faith | Romans 1:8-17 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.” -Romans 1:8

The church at Rome was not famous for their choir or their preacher, but for their faith. Their faith as a body of believers was so strong that it was spoken of throughout the world. They had a heartfelt faith that produced obedience.

Their faith was spread abroad by their obedience to the Word of God. When we walk in the works that God has ordained, our faith is renowned in all the world. Are you obedient to the faith?

Scripture at Sunrise 2.8.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | The Gospel of God | Romans 1:2-5
“Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning His Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by His resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of His Name among all the nations…” -Romans 1:1-5

The grace that saves us also leads us into obedience. It’s all by grace that it might be all to His glory–for the sake of His Name!

Scripture at Sunrise 9.1.2015

If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love. -John 15:10

These things cannot be parted — abiding in obedience and abiding in the love of Jesus. A life under the rule of Christ can alone prove that we are the objects of our Lord’s delight. We must keep our Lord’s command if we would bask in His love. If we live in sin we cannot live in the love of Christ. Without the holiness which pleases God we cannot please Jesus. He who cares nothing for holiness knows nothing of the love of Jesus.

Conscious enjoyment of our Lord’s love is a delicate thing. It is far more sensitive to sin and holiness than mercury is to cold and heat. When we are tender of heart and careful in thought, lip, and life to honor our Lord Jesus, then we receive tokens of His love without number. If we desire to perpetuate such bliss we must perpetuate holiness. The Lord Jesus will not hide His face from us unless we hide our face from Him. Sin makes the cloud which darkens our Sun: if we will be watchfully obedient and completely consecrated we may walk in the light, as God is in the light, and have as sure an abiding in the love of Jesus as Jesus has in the love of the Father. Here is a sweet promise with a solemn “if,” Lord, let me have this “if” in my hand; for as a key it opens this casket.

Scripture at Sunrise 8.5.2014

The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. -Psalm 37:31

Put the law into the heart, and the whole man is right. This is where the law should be; for then it lies, like the tables of stone in the ark, in the place appointed for it. In the head it puzzles, on the back it burdens, in the heart it upholds.

What a choice word is here used, “the law of his God”! When we know the Lord as our own God His law becomes liberty to us. God with us in covenant makes us eager to obey His will and walk in His commands. Is the precept my Father’s precept? Then I delight in it.

We are here guaranteed that obedient-hearted man shall be sustained in every step that he takes. He will do that which is right, and he shall therefore do that which is wise. Holy action is always the most prudent, though it may not at the time seem to be so, We are moving along the great highroad of God’s providence and grace when we keep to the way of His law. The Word of God has never misled a single soul yet; its plain directions to walk humbly, justly, lovingly, and in the fear of the Lord are as much words of wisdom to make our way prosperous as rules of holiness to keep our garments clean. He walks surely who walks righteously.
