Scripture at Sunrise 1.9.2017

Sunday Evening Sermon: Genuine Faith | John 4:46-54 | Anthony Vance
“The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.” -John 4:53

The greatest demonstration of the nobleman’s faith was that he didn’t just believe, but wanted others to believe also. Oh that God would grant households of faith. Go and tell them what He has done!

-excerpts 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

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 9.19.2011

“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” -2 Corinthians 13:5

Examine your faith.
1)Do you love God? …With every aspect of your being? Do you love His holiness? Do you sing His praises? Do you follow His will found in His Word?
2)Do you hate sin? Has there been a true change of heart in your life? A genuine repentance?
3)Do you love others? Do you have humility of mind? Do you esteem others better than yourselves?
4)Do you desire God’s glory?
5)Do you have a consistent and persistent prayer life?
6)Do you have communion with God through His Word?
7)Do you look different from the world?
8)Can you see spiritual growth in your life? Do you love Jesus more than you did one year ago?

Scripture @ Sunrise 2.2.09

It was another great Sunday at New Life Baptist Church (always in the Lord)!  Here’s your brief recap, which by no means does the day any justice.  Get a CD if you had to miss it for some reason. 

Devotion (Steve Dawson)
The Character of Genuine Saving Faith
There’s not a verse that sums it up, they’re all sooooo good! 

Sunday School (Steve Dawson)
“It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it would be expedient that one man should die for the people.” -John 18:14
The reason Christ was born was to die.

Sunday Morning Sermon (Pastor Steve Wainright)
“So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.  May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…” -Colossians 1:10-11
*Know God’s Word if you want to be filled with the knowledge of His will.
*How can we walk worthy of God? (I John 2:6; I Peter 2:21)

Sunday Evening Sermon (Pastor Steve Wainright)
“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility…”  -Ephesians 2:14
*Tabernacle: Courtyard (People)>Holy Place (Priest)>Most Holy Place (High Priest)
God tore down the middle wall through Christ!
*Before you can approach GOd, you have to deal with your sin. 
*The altar represents God’s holiness, His justice, His hate for sin.
*At the altar, you’d probably see blood, representing God’s wrath. 
*There must be a sacrifice to approach God. 
*Christ is the propitiation for our sins. (Romans 3:25)
*The Perfect Lamb became the Perfect Priest and also became the Perfect Altar!
*Since He has done so much for us, how then shall we live?  (Romans 12:1) As living sacrifices. 

AMEN and amen!  Happy Monday!  :o)
