Scripture at Sunrise 12.11.2017

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.-Romans 10:4
The law cannot make anybody righteous, but Christ can. The law cannot make anybody alive, but Christ can. The law cannot make anybody perfect, but Christ can. The law cannot justify anyone, but Christ can.

We don’t trust in anything we can do to get to Heaven. God accepts you, not because of what you do, but because of what Christ has done for you. In Christ, you are forever loved. –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 12.4.2017

“Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” -Romans 10:1-4
You must be sure you have the righteousness God requires to get to Heaven. You can’t make yourself good enough for God. You’re a sinner in need of the righteousness of Christ. –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Desperately Wicked

Scripture at Sunrise 11.27.2017

“What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, as it is written, ‘Behold, I am laying in Zion ya stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.'” -Romans 9:30-33

To the Jews, Jesus was a stumbling block, but to those of us who believe, He is our foundation. If you’re not careful, you’ll miss grace because of your morality and religiosity. Christ Jesus’ righteousness is the only righteousness that will get us into Heaven. –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

The Authority of Christ

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.
