Scripture at Sunrise 11.2.09

Sunday School | 1 John 5:13-21 | Bro. Roger Harden
“I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.  And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us.”  -1 John 5:13-14

We have everything to be thankful for and to be joyful about in Christ because He has given us eternal life.  If He has given us eternal life, rest assured that He will take care of the rest.  (Matthew 6:33)

Morning Worship | 1 Corinthians 3:18-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“…you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.”  -1 Corinthians 3:23
Ways to Prevent Division:
1)Don’t be impressed by your own wisdom.  If everyone is submitted to the Word of God, there will be unity.  (vs. 18-20)
2)Prefer teachers who teach truth, who are faithful to God’s Word, are living a godly life and are filled with the knowledge of God.  (vs. 21)
3)Know how to handle your possessions.  God has given us: [a]Some good preachers and good books.  Glean from their knowledge.  [b]The  world.  Only the redeemed child can see the world’s beauty as a gift from the Creator.  [c]Life!  Eternal life!  (John 10:10)  [d]Death.  It ushers us into the very presence of Christ.  (1 Corinthians 15:54-55; Galatians 2:20)  [e]The present.  He’s using all the events in your life to mold you into the image of His Son.  (Romans 8:28; Psalm 119:71,75)  [f]The future.  What’s to come: Heaven!  (Romans 8:17)
vs. 23- If your life is hid with Christ in God, how can there be division?

Evening Worship | Leviticus 6:8-23 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“For our sake He made Him to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”  -2 Corinthians 5:21
Ponder God’s holiness.  The sinless Son of God became sin for me.  The Creator gave His life for the creature.  Wow!
