Scripture at Sunrise 02.15.2021

“And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.” -2 Chronicles 34:2

What does it mean to do right in the sight of the Lord? It very simply means having a habit of seeking God in every situation. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon “Youthful Godlinessfrom 2 Chronicles 34)

Scripture at Sunrise 02.08.2021

“Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled…” -Hebrews 12:15

There are many people who are lonely. There are many who are sick, afflicted, discouraged, weary, and ready to quit. Don’t look within, look without. We are living in a hurting world. Have you reached out?

We need to be looking diligently because there are people around us who are tempted to stop running the race, give up, and throw in the towel. -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon “Look Diligently” from Hebrews 12:15)

Scripture at Sunrise 10.11.2016

And I will strengthen them in the Lord: and they shall walk up and down in His Name, saith the Lord.” -Zechariah 10:12

A solace for sick saints. They have grown faint, and they fear that they shall never rise from the bed of doubt and fear; but the Great Physician can both remove the disease and take away the weakness which has come of it. He will strengthen the feeble. This He will do in the best possible way, for it shall be “in Jehovah.” Our strength is far better in God than in self. In the Lord it causes fellowship, in ourselves it would create pride. In ourselves it would be sadly limited, but in God it knows no bound.

When strength is given, the believer uses it. He walks up and down in the name of the Lord. What an enjoyment it is to walk abroad after illness, and what a delight to be strong in the Lord after a season of prostration! The Lord gives His people liberty to walk up and down and an inward leisure to exercise that liberty. He makes gentlemen of us: we are not slaves who know no rest and see no sights, but we are free to travel at our ease throughout Immanuel’s land.

Come, my heart, be thou no more sick and sorry; Jesus bids thee be strong and walk with God in holy contemplation. Obey His word of love.
