Scripture at Sunrise 3.20.2017

Sunday Morning Sermon Audio – Overabounding Grace | Romans 5:12-21 (Steve Wainright)
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 5:20-21

The law causes sin to increase. The law cannot change a person’s heart. The law shines the light on your disobedience. Sin might bring pleasure for a season, but what sin is actually doing is working death in you.
The grace of God is greater than all our sin. Where sin was overflowing, grace overflowed exceedingly above and beyond. If you believe He died for your sins, there should be nothing in your past that can haunt you. It’s not about where you’ve been, but where you’re at.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.5.2016

“…the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction…” -Romans 3:22

God demands righteousness and God provides righteousness. What His justice demanded, His love has provided in His Son!

Sunday Morning Sermon: Dressed in His Righteousness | Romans 3:21-23 | Steve Wainright
“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction…” -Romans 3:21-22

There is a great division between man and God, but God has solved this problem! The law was given so it could warn man that he needed a sacrifice for his sins. At the same time God gave the law in the Old Testament, He provided the sacrificial lamb to give the righteousness of God. The law wasn’t good enough. The righteousness we need comes to us by faith in Christ.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.21.2016

“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—” -Romans 3:21

“But now” is the hinge in this chapter. It’s the turning point from looking at the radical sinfulness of man and looking to the radical righteousness of God.

The righteousness God requires righteousness of us and this passage shows us how to have that righteousness.

What matters is not your past, but where you are right now.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.12.2016

Sunday Morning Sermon: Your Righteousness Isn’t Good Enough | Romans 3:19-22 | Steve Wainright
“Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in His sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.” -Romans 3:19-20

While the law is perfect, righteous and good, it is weak in the flesh. It brings condemnation. What’s the answer? Faith and trust in Christ! There’s an absolute necessity of trust in Christ’s perfect righteousness.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.29.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Man’s Greatest Need | Romans 1:16-17
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” -Romans 1:16-17

The greatest need for all mankind is salvation and it is the Gospel of God that has power for salvation. In the Gospel, God’s righteousness is revealed and it reveals our own sinfulness and need. The righteousness God reveals He gives to sinners.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.18.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Intro to Romans | Romans 1-16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” -Romans 1:16-17

Referred to as Paul’s Magnum Opus, Romans is all about the Gospel. In a nutshell, it’s about: God’s righteousness as seen in the law Christ has fulfilled. Sin has affected man’s righteousness and now God offers His perfect righteousness to all those who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.7.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Righteousness Rejected | Philippians 3:2-9
“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—” -Philippians 3:7-9

Paul had the righteousness of the law outwardly, but struggled inwardly. If salvation could be worked for, Paul would have been close to attaining it. However, all that Paul had credited to his account, he put in the ‘Loss’ column.

What does God see in your life? Does He look and see you trying to attain righteousness or does He see Christ’s perfect righteousness?

Scripture at Sunrise 1.1.2015

“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

Of course we’ll fail today and need the gospel. That’s why God gave us Christ’s righteousness, and not just His example. -Scotty Smith via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 12.29.2014

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Galatians 3:10-14 | Redeemed (Audio)
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us…” — Galatians 3:13

The law shows our inability in the flesh to please God. The law demands perfection and we are all cursed. No one is justified by the law, but by FAITH.
