Scripture at Sunrise 12.22.2010

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  -2 Corinthians 12:9

What is God’s sovereign grace?

Not grace to bar what is not bliss
Nor flight from all distress but this:
The grace that orders our trouble and pain
And then, in the darkness, is there to sustain.

John Piper, “Sustained by Sovereign Grace—Forever

 

Scripture at Sunrise 6.18.09

“…but Christ is all, and in all.”  -Colossians 3:11

Jesus is:
The doctor’s cure
The pharmacist’s prescription
The athlete’s prize
The baker’s bread
The tailor’s pattern
The builder’s foundation
The musician’s melody
The composer’s symphony
The artist’s palette
The writer’s story
The poet’s rhyme
The traveler’s pathway
The explorer’s true north
The sailor’s safe haven
The mountain climber’s summit
The perfumer’s fragrance
The jeweler’s precious stone
The gardener’s rose
The astronomer’s morning star
The banker’s riches
The counselor’s wisdom
The lawyer’s truth
The heart’s delight
