JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the significance of the bread and the cup.
In First Corinthians 11:23, the Apostle Paul wrote, “The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’
Communion is a time of remembrance to the defining moment in history when the love of Jesus was poured out for us sacrificially so that we could live for His glory, live through His power, and live with Him in relationship forever.
Whenever we eat the bread and drink the cup of the communion table, we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
The significance of the bread and the cup is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Singer/songwriter Jonathan Thulin was a recent guest on New Tunes at 9. The Swedish born artist, who makes his home in Minneapolis, has released the project “The White Room,” on Dream Records. Jonathan Thulin began singing at an early age and began traveling around the world with his parents at age 11. (His parents, who were evangelists, toured with The Gaithers and Carman, among others.) Thulin, whose also recorded and written songs with the band, Press Play, continues to mature as a songwriter. “This album was different for me,” he says, “I didn’t strategically write songs as I usually would,” The first single off “The White Room” is a song called, “Architecture.” Jonathan writes, “You build me up like a city of gold. The battles rage but I’m standing tall. You formed my heart like an empire. The wind and rain can’t stop this fire.” (Jonathan spoke about the song on New Tunes at 9. http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/) For more on Jonathan Thulin, go to http://www.dreamrecords.org/, or visit https://www.facebook.com/jonathanthulin. Thulin is spelled “T-h-u-l-i-n” and pronounced “too-lane.”
JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on Jesus as the Resurrection and the Life.
In John 11:25, Jesus said to Martha: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
Then, He turned to Martha and asked her a question that is relevant for us as well. Jesus said, “Do you believe this?”
There are various beliefs about Jesus today. Some say that He was a good man, who demonstrated wise teachings and who did good things for people, but not more than that. To others, He is a swear word. To others, He was a deceiver. Others echo the response of Martha, who said, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
By saying this, Martha was affirming that Jesus was not just another ordinary man, but that He came from heaven as a promise from God, and is the source of eternal life for all who trust Him for salvation.
The eternal life that Jesus offers us is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on Jesus as the Bread Of Life.
After feeding 5,000 people, starting with five loaves of bread and two fish, Jesus taught a lesson of faith about spiritual bread.
He said in John 6:35: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
Jesus was inviting us to come to Him for a type of nourishment that physical food could not provide. Blaise Pascal has said, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus.
There are many different things that people seek to fill this vacuum. Some people seek satisfaction in money, fame, or pleasure. These are shallow substitutes for the long haul. Seeking Christ opens the way for us to live in relationship with God, and to experience His love and righteousness. In this way, we can have a fulfilling and thriving relationship with God that lasts forever.
The Bread of Life that Jesus offers us is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
