Scripture at Sunrise 6.21.2017

“Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I lay My vengeance upon them.” -Ezekiel 25:17
Israel had many godless neighbors and was not a witness like they should have been. Likewise, when we compromise and become tolerant of sin, our witness has no weight. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 10.12.2016

“but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” -John 4:14

If we desire to be good evangelists, we must look to the Master as our example. It all begins with how we look at people.
All people have the same need. All people have the same Gospel. All people (in Adam) have the same standing with God. All people have the same need for grace.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.6.2016

“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.” -John 1:43-44

Who’s your Philip? And will you take him to the throne of grace, knowing that Philip’s only hope is Jesus? And will you ask Jesus to go find Philip–to call him and make him His own? -Anthony Vance

Scripture at Sunrise 3.2.2016

“The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” -John 1:29

To be a faithful witness, we must understand our assignment. We have some “splainin'” to do! 

John the Baptist, an exemplary faithful witness, not only pointed people to Jesus but also explained Jesus to people. We want people to know HIM–not just know ABOUT Him.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.25.2016

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright
Paul: His Master, His Office, & His Purpose | Romans 1:1

“Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…” -Romans 1:1

In the first verse of Romans, Paul shares three simple facts about himself: his Master, his office, and his purpose.

He was a servant of Christ Jesus, who loved him and gave Himself for him. He was an apostle, sent by God to speak of Him…to be His witness. He was set apart for the Gospel of God before he was even born.

The point of your life is to be a witness of the Gospel of God. Are you being one?

Scripture at Sunrise 2.10.2015

“For thou shalt be His witnesses unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.” -Acts 22:15

Paul was chosen to see and hear the Lord speaking to him out of heaven. This divine election was a high privilege for himself; but it was not intended to end with him; it was meant to have an influence upon others, yea, upon all men. It is to Paul that Europe owes the gospel at this hour.

It is ours in our measure to be witnesses of that which the Lord has revealed to us, and it is at our peril that we hide the precious revelation. First, we must see and hear, or we shall have nothing to tell; but when we have done so, we must be eager to bear our testimony. It must be personal: “Thou shalt be.” It must be for Christ: “Thou shalt be his witness.” It must be constant and all absorbing; we are to be this above all other things and to the exclusion of many other matters. Our witness must not be to a select few who will cheerfully receive us but to “all men” — to all whom we can reach, young or old, rich or poor, good or bad. We must never be silent like those who are possessed by a dumb spirit; for the text before us is a command, and a promise, and we must not miss it — “Thou shalt be his witness.” “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord.”

Scripture at Sunrise 10.20.2014

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Luke 24:44-49 | Audio
Then He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His Name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. -Luke 24:44-47

Jesus spoke about things that were written of Him all throughout the Old Testament in the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms. Do your hearts burn within you when you see Christ in the Old Testament? Share it with others! Don’t limit yourself as a witness.

Scripture at Sunrise 1.2.2012

Sunday Morning | 1.1.2012 | Luke 2:25-39 | Pastor Steve Wainright | AUDIO

“Witnesses to the Messiah”

1)Simeon (vs. 25-35): an ordinary man who had been declared righteous by Almighty God because of his faith in Jesus Christ and had been set apart, waiting for the comfort of Israel to come(Isaiah 40:1). He knew the Messiah would come before he died. [How would you live or change your life if you knew that Christ was returning before you died?] He was filled with the Holy Spirit and led by the Spirit. He came to the temple at exactly the right time to see God’s salvation in the face of Jesus Christ, who was salvation not just for the Jews, but also for the Gentiles!

2)Anna (vs. 36-38): a teacher of truth who was about 104 years old and abode in the temple area, fasting and praying often. She was also led by the Spirit, coming at the perfect time to see the Messiah. She gave thanks to God and bore witness to the Messiah!

If the light has been shone in your heart, it is your duty to tell all about what He’s done!

Isaiah 58 Recap (July 1)

This is a highly technological multimedia post about the July 1 Isaiah 58 Picnic/Yard-Free.   A lot came, many heard the Gospel, all were physically fed.

This first video is a recap of Monday’s flier handout and a preview of the picnic. (And for the record, it was 5 loaves and 2 fish…my mind drew blank!)
