Scripture at Sunrise 4.5.2017

“For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote of Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” -John 5:46-47
Religion will not save you. Only Jesus will save you.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.2.2017

Sunday Morning Sermon: Assurance of Salvation through Justification | Romans 5:1 | Steve Wainright
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” –
Romans 5:1

If you misunderstand the doctrine of justification, you cannot have the joy of someone who has full assurance of their salvation. Justification happens at a particular point in time…it’s a completed action! It is only because of God’s grace that we are justified (declared righteous, declared to be in a right standing with God).

Scripture at Sunrise 11.2.2016

What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” -Romans 4:1-3
It’s not the work that you do–it’s the promise of God–what God has done for you.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.19.2016

“Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.” -Romans 3:27-28
Here’s Paul’s conclusion. Here’s the bottom line. Paul says, “This is it!”: that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. You don’t have to produce works to be saved. That was accomplished when Christ died upon Calvary–when He died upon that cross. He died for my sins that I might be justified in the sight of God. God declares me righteous because of the finished work of Christ. I can’t boast about what I did; I can boast about what Christ did for me. He did it all! Jesus paid it all!

Scripture at Sunrise 8.17.2016

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. -John 3:16-17

The way God planned to save us shows us His love. It was not a plan for law-keepers or self-changers, but a plan for believers: those who believe in the Son of God who accomplished all of the work. –excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 7.13.2016

“Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” -John 3:7-8

We can’t predict the new birth. This should humble us. This should encourage us. For every hopeless person in our lives, we should be encouraged that the wind of God could blow on them at any moment. Pray. Love. Preach. Live. -excerpts from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

The Necessity of the New Birth | John 3:1-6 | Anthony Vance
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” -John 3:3

It was God’s free choice that made Adam physically alive–likewise, it was God’s free choice that gave him spiritual life. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 6.22.2016

“Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in His Name when they saw the signs that He was doing. But Jesus on His part did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for He Himself knew what was in man.” -John 2:23-25

“True salvation is the whole man responding to the whole Christ. Where there is true faith the mind has been instructed, the heart has been changed, and the will has been broken – and with understanding we come to the Son of God, loving Him, ready to follow. This is the whole man responding to the whole Christ. This is saving faith.” -excerpts from “The Discernment that Determines Salvation” by Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 6.13.2016

The Kind of Faith that Doesn’t Bring Salvation | John 2:23-25 | Anthony Vance
“Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in His Name when they saw the signs that He was doing. But Jesus on His part did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for He Himself knew what was in man.” -John 2:23-25

There is a kind of faith that does not bring salvation. The crowd in this passage had faith in Christ, but He didn’t have faith in them because He knew the hearts of men. They professed belief, but were not true believers. They hadn’t gone beyond the signs to embrace the Savior. The faith that brings salvation is genuine. -excerpts from “The Kind of Faith that Doesn’t Bring Salvation” by Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 5.23.2016

Judged by Works | Romans 2:6-10 | Steve Wainright
“He will render to each one according to his works.” -Romans 2:6

God’s judgment is coming on man because of sin. Here He is laying down the standard and principles by which they will be judged.

In this passage, we take a look at how we are judged according to our works. We are judged according to the things we do in life. Does your life display obedience or disobedience? (This is not referring to salvation, but judgment. Salvation is all by God’s grace. We do not work for it; however, we do good things as a result of our salvation.)

We are born again to do good works. When we do good works, we glorify God–and that’s the whole purpose. A lot of times you don’t see the fruits of your labor in the midst of your labor, but be patient in well-doing.
