Scripture at Sunrise 8.29.2019


“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 8:1

“No condemnation in Christ” means we run away from sin, not towards it. In Christ, it is at last safe to be fully known by God. We don’t need to hide. There’s no need for spin. We can confess our sins deeply and freely, laying before him the worst of ourselves. -Sam Allberry via Twitter

Since Satan can’t destroy the gospel, he’ll do whatever he can to destroy those who proclaim it. Pray for yourself, your pastor, and fellow church members. -Garrett Kell via Twitter

Joy comes when God fills you with an awareness of His goodness, even in the midst of terrible realities. Entertainment ushers you into a fantasy world that gives the illusion of happiness by escaping reality. -Garrett Kell via Twitter
