Scripture at Sunrise 12.27.2021

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” -1 Peter 1:6-9

“With God as our help, we must finish our journey with a great love for Christ and a joy that is inexpressible, even in the hardest times of suffering in life, knowing that God is sovereign and on the throne, and that He’s working all things together for our good and His glory.” -Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Morning Sermon from 1 Peter 1:6-9)

Scripture at Sunrise 4.17.2017

Sunday Evening – Philip’s Test | John 6:5-9 (Anthony Vance)
Lifting up His eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward Him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” He said this to test him, for He himself knew what He would do. -John 6:5-6

Philip’s test is a test for us also. God doesn’t design tests to expand His knowledge, but for our growth and understanding. He was testing Philip’s understanding and faith. The test reveals our understanding and faith in the Master who is at work in our lives.
