Scripture at Sunrise 9.10.2020

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” -Romans 8:1

The Christian can strive for the loftiest goals of devotion without fear; we can fail and get up time and time again without detriment to our hope or joy because our standing before God is fixed upon the perfect work of Christ and His love for us is immutable and unassailable. -Paul Washer via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 9.3.2020

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” -1 Corinthians 10:31

The Goal: To be devoted to God and driven by a passion for Him—That every breath and beat of the heart might be for His glory; that every thought, disposition, word, and activity might be conformed to His will; that every accomplishment might find its end in His good pleasure. -Paul Washer via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 8.27.2020

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

Love is not merely one good thing among many, but the most excellent thing of all (I Cor.13:13).

Scripture at Sunrise 8.13.2020

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” -Ephesians 2:8-10

True enjoyment of God must lead naturally to mission—to helping others see the beauty you see. God never draws us in except to send us out—to serve and reach others. -Tim Keller via Twitter

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” -Micah 6:8

Everyone is . . . tired. Or worried. Or angry. Or sad. Or fearful. Or hurting. Or something. You be the one who lowers the volume and calms the situation, who smiles kindly, who says “I’m sorry” with no sarcasm, who shows them grace. You be the face of Jesus to them. -Hershael York via Twitter

“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” -1 John 3:18
