Relationship Building Principle-Encouraging The Oppressed

john : September 3, 2015 5:29 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Isaiah 1:17.

The LORD says, “Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.

In applying this principle to situations today, it means taking a stand against bullying and being an advocate for those who are bullied. It means taking a stand against human trafficking, and being an advocate for those who are victims. It means being an advocate for the homeless, the orphan, and the widow, which may take us down the road to volunteerism, adoption, or some kind of sponsorship.

With such great need, there is much to do with the time that we have on this earth to be the hands and feet of Jesus. By ourselves, we cannot change the world. But through the grace of Christ, we can make a difference for someone in a place of need. As we commit our ways to God, listen to the burdens of our heart, and look for opportunities to make a difference, we can be encouraged by this truth in Psalm 37:6-“He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”

Encouraging the oppressed is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Neighbors and Needy

john : September 2, 2015 5:19 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Proverbs 14:21.

“He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.”

To despise our neighbor would violate the second greatest commandment in all of Scripture, which is to love our neighbor as ourselves. God calls His people to live with neighborly love-the kind that seeks God’s blessing on their lives and treats them with respect and consideration. Building relationships with our neighbors is a significant step to demonstrating the love of Jesus to them. Our neighbor might be considered the family that lives next to us, but they also might be whoever happens to be next to us at a given time.

A blessing is granted from the Lord for the person who is kind to the needy. We have opportunity to do this in various ways. Proverbs 22:9 talks about the generous man sharing his food with the poor. Proverbs 31:9 promotes defending the rights of the poor. Psalm 15:5 promotes lending to the poor without charging excessive interest. The general idea is to be openhanded and not tightfisted toward the poor.

Loving our neighbors and being kind to the needy are vital relationship-building principles to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Carrying Burdens Of Another

john : August 27, 2015 6:04 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Galatians 6:1 and 2.

Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Expressing love to sinners can get messy. The ultimate example of this is Jesus Christ, who went to the cross for our sins. As we walk in the light of God’s love, we will recognize two important realities. The first reality is that there are people all around us who need Jesus. And the second reality is that even though we might have a relationship with Jesus, we are still capable of giving in to temptation. So, we are wise to guard our own heart, so that the Spirit living in us influences the person caught in sin, rather than sin in the other person having an influence on us.

In reaching out to people who have been caught in a sin, we have the opportunity to restore them to fellowship with God. The Bible says that we are to do this gently. This means, showing mercy and patience so that they can perceive God’s love expressed through us. It means sharing the good news that Jesus can change us from the inside out as we look to Him as Savior and Lord.

Carrying the burdens of another is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Encounter With Jesus-Water Into Wine

john : August 26, 2015 5:49 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s encounter with Jesus examines when Jesus turned water into wine.

It happened at the festive occasion of a wedding. The very fact that Jesus shows up at a wedding reflects his nature to celebrate with those who are celebrating that which God blesses.

But there was a problem. They ran out of wine. Jesus had the servants fill jars with water. By the time they drew it out, the water had turned into wine.

The master of the banquet said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

The account of Jesus turning water into wine reminds us that while life does have its moments of joy here on earth, the best is yet to come for those who follow Him. He saves the best for last. He will fill us with joy in His presence, with eternal pleasures at His right hand. Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!

A daily connection with Christ leads us to joyful celebration in His abiding Presence.

KCB Fest and Our Community

stacey : August 25, 2015 3:36 pm : Stacey Gagne, Staff Pages

STACEY GAGNE – As we’re getting ready for Kids Cookie Break Fest here at The Junction Center this weekend, I am once again reminded what a great and involved community we have here.

We have super talented artists and educators who love to tell kids and families about Jesus and have fun while doing it!

Some phenomenal sponsors from local business and non-profit organizations are investing their finances, products and time to make this event happen while also being involved year round here at WJTL and in the community.  (special thanks to Funco Entertainment, Turkey Hill Dairy, Thrivent Financial, SVPS, J. Garber Enterprises, Chick-fil-A Lancaster, Herr’s Snacks, Oregon Dairy, Dutch Valley Food Distributors and Alan Manufacturing)

Our  amazing volunteers come out and help us time and time again … some of whom have been a part of the team for decades!

We are also certain that there are listeners who are praying, giving and enthusiastically encouraging us as all the time as we broadcast, go live into the community and host events here at The Junction Center.

Wow and Thank You.

Christ. Community Music.
