Scripture at Sunrise 1.31.2018

“For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” -Titus 3:3-7

We must realize that Christianity is the easiest religion in the world, because it is the only religion in which God the Father and Christ and the Holy Spirit do everything. God is the Creator; we have nothing to do with our existence, or the existence of other things. We can shape other things, but we cannot change the fact of existence. We do nothing for our salvation because Christ did it all. We do not have to do anything. In every other religion we have to do something…but with Christianity we do not do anything; God has done it all: He created us and He has sent His Son; His Son died and because the Son is infinite, therefore He bears our total guilt. We do not need to bear our guilt, nor do we even have to merit the merit of Christ. He does it all. So in one way it is the easiest religion of the world. -Francis Schaeffer

Scripture at Sunrise 1.24.2018

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” -1 Corinthians 15:33

Is your walk with the Lord dependent on someone else? Or is your walk with the Lord connected with a personal relationship with Christ?

Joash had a great zeal for the Lord when Jehoiada was in the picture, but that faded when he surrounded himself with ungodly influences. Joash depended on Jehoiada and Jehoaida’s walk with the Lord, when Jehoiada passed of the scene, Joash turned from godliness.

Scripture at Sunrise 12.27.2017

“”You shall have no other gods before Me.” -Exodus 20:3

“Sin isnʼt only doing bad things; it’s more fundamentally making good things into ultimate things. Sin is building your life and meaning on anything, even a very good thing, more than on God. Whatever we build our life on will drive us and enslave us. Sin is primarily idolatry.” -Tim Keller
