Scripture at Sunrise 5.25.2020

“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.” -Hebrews 4:1

Fear unbelief and not trusting the Lord your God. You can have a promise from God, but if you do not have faith in the God of the promise, that promise does you no good.

-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon from Hebrews 4:1-11Fear Unbelief)

Scripture at Sunrise 1.1.2020

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.” -Psalm 23:1-2

“If this New Year shall be full of unbelief, it will be sure to be dark and dreary. If it be baptized into faith, it will be saturated with benediction. If we will believe our God as He deserves to be believed, our way will run along the still waters, and our rest will be in green pastures. Trusting in the Lord, we shall be prepared for trials, and shall even welcome them as black ships laden with bright treasures.” -Charles H. Spurgeon

Scripture at Sunrise 2.27.2019

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10

“Unbelief puts our circumstance between us and God, but faith puts God between us and our circumstances.” -F.B. Meyer

Scripture at Sunrise 10.31.2017

“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” -Psalm 118:17

A fair assurance this! It was no doubt based upon a promise, inwardly whispered in the psalmist’s heart, which he seized upon and enjoyed. Is my case like that of David? Am I depressed because the enemy affronts me? Are there multitudes against me and few on my side? Does unbelief bid me lie down and die in despair-a defeated, dishonored man? Do my enemies begin to dig my grave?

What then? Shall I yield to the whisper of fear, and give up the battle, and with it give up all hope? Far from it. There is life in me yet: “I shall not die.” Vigor will return and remove my weakness: “I shall live.” The Lord lives, and I shall live also. My mouth shall again be opened: “I shall declare the works of Jehovah.” Yes, and I shall speak of the present trouble as another instance of the wonder-working faithfulness and love of the Lord my God. Those who would gladly measure me for my coffin had better wait a bit, for “the Lord hath chastened me sore, but He hath not given me over unto death.” Glory be to His name forever! I am immortal till my work is done. Till the Lord wills it, no vault can close upon me.

Sunday Morning | Where is Your Faith?Mark 9:14-29
“Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!'” -Mark 9:24

It’s not how big your faith is, but where your faith is and what it is in. That little bit of belief you have is enough if it is in the right Person.

Scripture at Sunrise 7.18.2016

Not Wanting What You Need | John 3:9-12 | Anthony Vance
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? -John 3:9-12

Of all the things mankind lost in the fall, chiefly, man lost his ability to believe in God. The natural man has no desire for God and refuses to act upon what he has been shown. Because of his sinful desires, man doesn’t want what he needs. -excerpt from Anthony Vance’s Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 12.9.2014

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” -Mark 9:23

Our unbelief is the greatest hindrance in our way; in fact, there is no other real difficulty as to our spiritual progress and prosperity. The Lord can do everything; but when He makes a rule that according to our faith so shall it be unto us, our unbelief ties the hands of His omnipotence.

Yes, the confederacies of evil shall be scattered if we can but believe. Despised truth shall lift its head if we will but have confidence in the God of truth. We can bear our load of trouble or pass uninjured through the waves of distress if we can gird our loins with the girdle of peace, that girdle which is buckled on by the hands of trust.

What can we not believe? Is everything possible except believing in God? Yet He is always true; why do we not believe in Him? He is always faithful to His word; why can we not trust Him? When we are in a right state of heart, faith costs no effort: it is then as natural for us to rely upon God as for a child to trust his father.

The worst of it is that we can believe God about everything except the present pressing trial. This is folly. Come, my soul, shake off such sinfulness, and trust thy God with the load, the labor, the longing of this present. This done, all is done.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 9.23.2014

“For behold, I will command, and shake the house of Israel among all the nations as one shakes with a sieve, but no pebble shall fall to the earth.” -Amos 9:9

The sifting process is going on still. Wherever we go, we are still being winnowed and sifted. In all countries God’s people are being tried “like as corn is sifted in a sieve.” Sometimes the devil holds the sieve and tosses us up and down at a great rate, with the earnest desire to get rid of us forever. Unbelief is not slow to agitate our heart and mind with its restless fears. The world lends a willing hand at the same process and shakes us to the right and to the left with great vigor. Worst of all, the church, so largely apostate as it is, comes in to give a more furious force to the sifting process.

Well, well! Let it go on. Thus is the chaff severed from the wheat. Thus is the wheat delivered from dust and chaff. And how great is the mercy which comes to us in the text, “Yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth”! All shall be preserved that is good, true, gracious. Not one of the least of believers lose anything worth calling a loss. We shall be so kept in the sifting that it shall be a real gain to us through Christ Jesus.

Scripture at Sunrise 3.21.2013

“And on the seventh day God finished His work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done.” Genesis 2:2

Overwork is a form of unbelief, because it says, “God, I can’t trust You to provide for me in six days.” Genesis 2:2 -Lois Evans via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 2.1.10

Sunday School | Matthew 13:53-58 | Bro. Randy Thomas

“And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.”  -Matthew 13:58
While visiting Nazareth, Jesus was a hometown boy (like a Kentucky boy making a free throw for UK, we tend to cheer extra hard for him!), but He was rejected.  Look at all that they missed out on because of their unbelief.

Morning Worship | 1 Corinthians 7:17-24 | Pastor Steve Wainright

“For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.”  -1 Corinthians 7:19
Wherever you are in life, be content because God has placed you there.  Don’t be so preoccupied with social issues that you push aside the main issue (the spiritual issue) and water down the Gospel.  The Corinthians were highlighting the social issues.  Paul is saying that the Gospel is what needs to be emphasized!  Live your life out loud for the glory of God so others may see how Christ has worked in your life!

Evening Worship | Leviticus 18:1-30 | Pastor Steve Wainright

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?”  -Jeremiah 17:9
God knows the heart of man.  This heart is the same today as it was in Old Testament times.  God, as divine authority, creates boundaries (in this case, it’s guidelines for sexual behavior).  Whenever God says, “Don’t do something,” it’s for your benefit.  It’s because He loves you.
