Scripture at Sunrise 10.20.2020

“He shall save his people from their sins.” -Matthew 1:21
Lord, save me from my sins. By the name of Jesus I am encouraged thus to pray. Save me from my past sins, that the habit of them may not hold me captive. Save me from my constitutional sins, that I may not be the slave of my own weaknesses. Save me from the sins which are continually under my eye that I may not lose my horror of them. Save me from secret sins; sins unperceived by me from my want of light. Save me from sudden and surprising sins: let me not be carried off my feet by a rush of temptation. Save me, Lord, from every sin. Let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Thou alone canst do this. I cannot snap my own chains or slay my own enemies. Thou knowest temptation, for Thou wast tempted. Thou knowest sin, for Thou didst bear the weight of it. Thou knowest how to succor me in my hour of conflict; Thou canst save me from sinning and save me when I have sinned. It is promised in Thy very name that Thou wilt do this, and I pray Thee let me this day verify the prophecy. Let me not give way to temper, or pride, or despondency, or any form of evil; but do Thou save me unto holiness of life, that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me abundantly.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.7.2020

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus…” -Romans 3:23-24

Do you think your sin is bad? It’s worse than you think. Do you think God’s grace is amazing? It’s better than you think. -Garrett Kell via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.12.2020

“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

“The sight of Christ’s bleeding body should incense us against sin…Let not that be our joy, which made Christ a man of sorrow.” – Thomas Watson

Scripture at Sunrise 5.6.2020

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” -Jeremiah 17:9-10

The message of the cross and the good news of the gospel will never make sense until we believe that our deepest problem is our sin, until we recognize that the deepest problem with this world is that it is in rebellion against its Maker. -Kevin DeYoung via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 5.5.2020

“The Lord thy God will turn thy captivity.” -Deuteronomy 30:3

God’s own people may sell themselves into captivity by sin. A very bitter fruit is this, of an exceeding bitter root. What a bondage it is when the child of God is sold under sin, held in chains by Satan, deprived of his liberty, robbed of his power in prayer and his delight in the Lord! Let us watch that we come not into such bondage; but if this has already happened to us, let us by no means despair.

But we cannot be held in slavery forever. The Lord Jesus has paid too high a price for our redemption to leave us in the enemy’s hand. The way to freedom is, “Return unto the Lord thy God.” Where we first found salvation we shall find it again. At the foot of Christ’s cross, confessing sin, we shall find pardon and deliverance. Moreover, the Lord will have us obey His voice according to all that He has commanded us, and we must do this with all our heart and all our soul, and then our captivity shall end.

Often depression of spirit and great misery of soul are removed as soon as we quit our idols and bow ourselves in obedience before the living God. We need not be captives. We may return to Zion’s citizenship, and that speedily. Lord, turn our captivity!

[from Morning & Evening by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 12.9.2019

“And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.” -Hosea 13:2

Once sin starts, it starts swelling. It is serious and is not something to dabble in. If you start getting into sin just a little bit, it will wrap around you tighter and tighter until you are bound. However, God’s Word offers hope. He is your Help.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Wednesday night’s sermon from Hosea 13: Sin Will Swell)


Scripture at Sunrise 12.2.2019

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” -Titus 2:11-14

Every sin of every person has its remedy in Jesus Christ.
