Scripture at Sunrise 11.21.2017

Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. -Isaiah 45:22

This is a promise of promises. It lies at the foundation of our spiritual life. Salvation comes through a look at Him who is “a just God and a Saviour.” How simple is the direction! “Look unto me.” How reasonable is the requirement! Surely the creature should look to the Creator. We have looked elsewhere long enough; it is time that we look alone to Him who invites our expectation and promises to give us His salvation. Only a look! Will we not look at once? We are to bring nothing in ourselves but to look outward and upward to our Lord on His throne, whither He has gone up from the cross. A look requires no preparation, no violent effort: it needs neither wit nor wisdom, wealth nor strength. All that we need is in the Lord our God, and if we look to Him for everything, that everything shall be ours, and we shall be saved.

Come, far-off ones, look hither! Ye ends of the earth, turn your eyes this way! As from the furthest regions men may see the sun and enjoy his light, so you who lie in death’s borders at the very gates of hell may by a look receive the light of God, the life of heaven, the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and therefore able to save.

Scripture at Sunrise 11.20.2017

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

At the root of all sin is a failure to love. Loving God and loving others sums up the whole law. Salvation is God sending His Son to die for your lack of love–either your failure to love God or love others–and giving you a heart to love. –excerpts from Ron Crisp’s Sunday Evening Sermon

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
