Scripture at Sunrise 11.27.2017

“What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith; but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law. Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, as it is written, ‘Behold, I am laying in Zion ya stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.'” -Romans 9:30-33

To the Jews, Jesus was a stumbling block, but to those of us who believe, He is our foundation. If you’re not careful, you’ll miss grace because of your morality and religiosity. Christ Jesus’ righteousness is the only righteousness that will get us into Heaven. –excerpts from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

The Authority of Christ

Scripture at Sunrise 5.2.2011

“We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way…” -2 Corinthians 6:3-4

Paul’s life was an example of the grace of God not being received in vain. He wanted nothing in his ministry to be a stumbling block. (Romans 14:13, 1 Corinthians 8:9)

How to be sure you won’t be a stumbling block to others: Live in the light of God’s Word. (1 John 2:10)

Are you living your life in such a way that others see Christ and not you? Your life is the most eloquent advertisement for the Gospel that there is. Are you a good ad or bad ad?
