Relationship Building Principle-Returning Evil With Good

john : July 2, 2015 5:47 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Corinthians 4:12.

Being an apostle of Christ required great courage and love in the early church. Paul the Apostle wrote, “We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly.”

The Apostles of the early church were serious about applying Jesus’ command to ‘love our enemies.’ Another person who lived out this command in a powerful way more recently was Elisabeth Elliot. She died recently at the age of 88. Elisabeth Elliot dedicated part of her life to serving a group of people who lived in a remote area of Ecuador. She reached out in a spirit of peace to the same people who killed her husband, Jim Elliot in 1956. Instead of seeking revenge, she sought their salvation. The Lord worked through Elisabeth Elliot’s extraordinary love and dedication to reach the unreached with the Gospel. According to an article in Christianity Today, the tribe that was considered one of the most violent in the world would see a 90 percent drop in homicides over the next 20 years. This is what can happen when God’s people seek to overcome evil with good.

Returning human hatred with God’s love is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Encounter With Jesus-Identity Question

john : June 26, 2015 5:46 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHNSHIRK-In the Year of Connection, today’s encounter with Jesus examines a very important question.

One time when Jesus was with His disciples, He asked them, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”

Their reply, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

Then Jesus took that question and made it more personal. “What about you? Who do you say I am?”

That is when Simon Peter spoke up, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

The response of Jesus is significant, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”

Who do we think Jesus is? This is the question that confronts us today. If we agree with Peter’s response, that will shape our identity, our purpose, and our destiny.

A daily connection with Christ will open our eyes to see the true identity of Jesus.

Encounter With Jesus-Complete Forgiveness

john : June 16, 2015 5:30 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His power to forgive.

First John 1:8 and 9 says, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Confession is simply agreeing with God that we are sinners in need of His grace. There are no secrets that we can keep from God. He knows everything about us already, so nothing we tell Him about ourselves will surprise Him. Jesus is ready to offer us mercy when we approach Him with humility and honesty. Confession is how we bring the darkness into the light, and remove the barriers that keep us from experiencing the joy of God’s spiritual blessings.

First John 2:1 says, “If anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.”

A daily connection with Christ gives us a place to turn for complete forgiveness and purification.
