Summing Up Sunday 05.30.2022

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” -1 Peter 4:7

When you become aware of Jesus Christ and that His coming is imminent, it affects your whole life. Live in the light of His imminent return. It can happen at any moment.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon “In Light of His Coming” from 1 Peter 4:7-11)

“and return to the LORD your God, you and your children, and obey His voice in all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your soul, then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have mercy on you, and He will gather you again from all the peoples where the LORD your God has scattered you.” -Deuteronomy 30:2-3

Scripture at Sunrise 2.7.2017

“If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up.” -Job 22:23

Eliphaz, in this utterance, spoke a great truth, which is the summary of many an inspired Scripture. Reader, has sin pulled you down? Have you become like a ruin? Has the hand of the Lord gone out against you so that in estate you are impoverished and in spirit you are broken down? Was it your own folly which brought upon you all this dilapidation? Then the first thing to be done is to return to the Lord. With deep repentance and sincere faith find your way back from your backsliding. It is your duty, for you have turned away from Him whom you professed to serve. It is your wisdom, for you cannot strive against Him and prosper. It is your immediate necessity, for what He has done is nothing compared to what He may do in the way of chastisement, since He is Almighty to punish.

See what a promise invites you! You shall be “built up.” None but the Almighty can set up the fallen pillars and restore the tottering walls of your condition; but He can and He will do it if you return to Him. Do not delay. Your crushed mind may quite fail you if you go on to rebel; but hearty confession will ease you, and humble faith will console you. Do this, and all will be well.
