“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” -Mark 10:45

Serve God by doing common actions in a heavenly spirit, and then, if your daily calling only leaves you cracks and crevices of time, fill them up with holy service. -Charles Spurgeon via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.19.2018

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” -Psalm 103:2

Today you can choose to permit your heart to complain or you can give yourself to consider the amazing catalog of blessings, which you could not have earned or deserved, that are yours by grace. -Paul Tripp via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.18.2018

And of Benjamin he said, “The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.” -Deuteronomy 33:12

Yes, there is no safety like that which comes of dwelling near to God. For His best beloved the Lord can find no surer or safer place. O Lord, let me always abide under Thy shadow, close to Thy wounded side. Nearer and nearer would I come to Thee, my Lord; and when once specially near Thee, I would abide there forever.

What a covering is that which the Lord gives to His chosen! Not a fair roof shall cover him, nor a bomb-proof casement, nor even an angel’s wing, but Jehovah Himself. Nothing can come at us when we are thus covered. This covering the Lord will grant us all the day long, however long the day. Lord, let me abide this day consciously beneath this canopy of love, this pavilion of sovereign power.

Does the third clause mean that the Lord in His temple would dwell among the mountains of Benjamin or that the Lord would be where Benjamin’s burden should be placed, or does it mean that we are borne upon the shoulders of the Eternal? In any case, the Lord is the support and strength of His saints. Lord, let me ever enjoy Thy help, and then my arms will be sufficient for me.

Scripture at Sunrise 9.17.2018

“to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.” -Romans 16:27
As children of God, praise should ever be on our lips to the only wise God. Only God’s wisdom is pure. He has worked a plan since the foundation of the world for sinners to have a way to Him. He makes children of darkness to become children of light. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” -2 Corinthians 5:20

We are all natural evangelists for the people and the things that we love the most. -Kevin DeYoung via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.12.2018

“…but you shall love your neighbor as yourself…” -Leviticus 19:18

It’s nearly impossible to love our neighbors if we don’t know our neighbors. And herein lies the tension of our times: We live in such a connected world with such limited or nonexistent connection. Relationships matter. Stories matter. -E. Cho

Scripture at Sunrise 9.11.2018

“Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.” -Deuteronomy 28:6

The blessings of the law are not canceled. Jesus confirmed the promise when He bore the penalty. If I keep the commands of my Lord, I may appropriate this promise without question.

This day I will come in to my house without fear of evil tidings, and I will come in to my closet expecting to hear good news from my Lord. I will not be afraid to come in unto myself by self-examination, nor to come in to my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. I have a good deal of work to do indoors, within my own soul; oh, for a blessing upon it all, the blessing of the Lord Jesus, who has promised to abide with me.

I must also go out. Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world again. But I must go out in my calling, and I must go out that I may be helpful to my brethren and useful to the ungodly. I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh, for a blessing upon my going out this day! Lord, let me go where Thou leadest, on Thy errands, under Thy command, and in the power of Thy Spirit.

Lord Jesus, turn in with me and be my guest; and then walk out with me and cause my heart to burn while You speak with me by the way.
