Scripture at Sunrise 3.21.2011

Sunday Morning | 2 Corinthians 5:1-5 | Pastor Steve Wainright | Listen
“For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” -2 Corinthians 5:1

In this earthly tent, we groan because of the sin that has effected our bodies, but for the child of God, this is only temporal. We have a house built by God to look forward to, a resurrection body that is eternally permanent.

Assurance that the Resurrection will happen: God has given us a down payment, guaranteeing that it will be done. His down payment iss the Spirit dwelling within us. (vs. 5; Ephesians 1:14)

Sunday Evening | Intro to Deuteronomy | Bro. Jason Estes | Listen
“Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.” -Deuteronomy 32:46-47

Deuteronomy was written to the new generation of Israel to remind them of God’s power and that His Word is vitally important.
ch. 1-3: Recap of their trip
ch. 4: Call for obedience. They were urged to be faithful to God Who had always been faithful to them.
ch. 5-26: Restating the Law; Pattern of Blessings for Obedience and Curses for Disobedience
ch. 27-30: <missed this one> Two options in ch. 30
ch. 31-34: Encourages, Commissions Joshua, Song, Blessing of Each Tribe; ch. 34=death of Moses and short obituary

-Shows the absolute necessity for Mosaic Law to be kept perfectly.
-Showcases our need for a Savior and points to Christ.
-Points to God’s sovereignty and election.

**Be sure to listen to this one to the end to hear some really neat typologies he draws out from Moses compared to Christ!

Scripture at Sunrise 9.27.2010

“Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.”  -1 Corinthians 15:49

As we bear the image of the earthy now, believers will bear the image of the heavenly.  Believer, are you bearing forth the glory of God in your life right now?

Scripture at Sunrise 3.8.2010

Sunday School | Jonah | Bro. Steve Dawson

“So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord.” -Jonah 3:3

Our obedience comes from being submissive to His Word daily. Be willing to say every day, “I will glorify You, Christ. Help me.”

Morning Worship | 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did.”  -1 Corinthians 10:6

You have liberty in Christ.  It should never lead you to self-indulgence.  Your liberty should lead you to self-control.
(Israel’s liberty led them to self-indulgence, though God had brought them out of Egypt, guided them, protected them and provided for them.  We are to learn from their example and not lust after evil things, rather pursue the only One Who can satisfy our deepest needs.)

Evening Worship | …
As I was Granny-sitting, unfortunately I was not able to hear my dad’s sermon on Leviticus.  However, I did have the privilege of listening to a sermon on the resurrection by Bro. Sugrim Ramesar that I encourage you to check out!  [Just As He Said] So, I’ll share one truth that the Holy Spirit made most clear to me…and a beautiful truth it is!
“…Who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.”  -Romans 4:25
God raising Christ from the dead shows that His payment for our sins was accepted!

Scripture @ Sunrise 2.16.09

It was another big day filled with reminders of the importance of Christ’s resurrection, preeminence and will for our lives!  Here’s a recap for you, which is by no means extensive!   

Devotion Bro. Paul Johnson
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” –Ephesians 6:11
I always need to be reminded that I am in a spiritual battle.  I know that, but it is easy to forget it sometimes. 

Sunday School Bro. Steve Dawson
“…Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  –John 20:29
Such a great promise for us!  “What more can He say than to you He hath said?!”  This lesson was packed too full of nutrients for me to fully digest them all! 

Sunday Morning Worship Pastor Steve Wainright
“And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”  –Colossians 1:17
Another nutrient-packed message!  Christ is preeminent in creation (vs. 16-17) and Christ is preeminent in redemption (vs. 18-20).  Is Jesus Christ preeminent in your life, your all in all? 

Sunday Evening Worship Pastor Steve Wainright
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.”  -Psalm 32:8
I’m so glad God has given us His Word to help us discern His will, though it was interesting to hear about the urim and thummim!  Remember to read, study and obey His Word.  Then examine the desires and opportunities in your life along with your gifts and talents.  Pray and seek His face.  Trust in His providence.  Wait on the Lord until He gives directions.  (James 1:5, Psalm 27:14, Psalm 32:8)

And a sidenote, the kids did such a great job tonight singing “God is so Good!”  Their voice singing praises to the King were a blessing to listen to.  I hope you bring your kids next week to participate at 5:45 p.m.
