Scripture at Sunrise 8.16.2017

“I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from fall your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes and be careful to obey My rules.” -Ezekiel 36:24-27

Notice the pronouns. God doesn’t tell them to do anything. He says He’s going to do it. He takes a dead sinner and transplants their old stony heart with a heart of flesh. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon from Ezekiel 36

Scripture at Sunrise 8.9.2017

“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” -Romans 8:19-21

Things are decaying all around us, but this creation will be delivered from this bondage of corruption when God unveils the glory that’s in His children. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon from Romans 8

Sunday Morning | No CondemnationRomans 8:1-2
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 7:24-8:1

Right now, if you are in Christ, there is no condemnation over you. The wrath of God has been appeased by Christ. This does not say that there is no cause for condemnation, but that there is no condemnation because of what Christ has done for us. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Morning Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 8.31.2011

“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” -Romans 8:3-4

I can approach the throne of God with confidence. Not because I’ve done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I’m clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.  -CJ Mahaney in Living the Cross-Centered Life

Scripture at Sunrise 2.3.2011

“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” -Romans 8:3-4

Christianity is the only faith system where God both makes the demands and meets them.  -Tullian Tchvidjian, via his Twitter
