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.

Encounter With Jesus-High Priest

john : June 15, 2015 5:10 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His role as our high priest.

One of the functions of the high priest in the Old Testament was to enter the Most Holy Place once a year to make atonement for himself and the people. The high priest would offer animal blood as sacrifices year after year, which did not have the power to take away sin. Then came Jesus who offered Himself for our sins once for all. His blood was payment enough to take our sin away. His grace is sufficient for our need.

Hebrews 4:14 says, “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

In our times of weakness and temptations, Jesus will be our source of strength if we turn to Him. He is able to turn our weaknesses into strengths, so that when people see the change in our lives, they see the power of Christ making the difference.

A daily connection with Christ gives us constant access to the throne of grace.

Relationship Building Principle-Be Still

john : June 11, 2015 5:22 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Psalm 46:10.

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 46 is about looking to God in faith through circumstances that would normally melt hearts with fear.

There are references to earthquakes and tsunamis found here. Nations are in uproar. Kingdoms fall. Desolations are found on the earth.

The world suffers the consequences from humanity’s sin problem, and those consequences include disasters and armed conflict between nations. In the midst of such upheaval, God invites us to find hope and strength in the everlasting arms of God’s grace. That is where we find security for our soul. That is where we find peace in the eye of the storm. The world is not spinning out of His control. God is on the throne, and this will be clearly evident to everyone in the course of time.

Isaiah 30:15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”

Depending on God in times of trouble is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Get to know Intern Katlyn!

Katlyn Jumper : June 11, 2015 10:28 am : Intern Katlyn

INTERN KATLYN – Hello WTJL Listeners! My name is Katlyn Jumper, most of you know me as Intern Katlyn. Before coming to WJTL, I spend the last semester learning about music streaming on the internet. While looking for internships, I came across WJTL and thought, why not experience, learn and intern where music streaming all started!

This coming fall, I will be entering my senior year at Lebanon Valley College where I am studying Music Business. I will be serving as the President of the VALE Music Industry Conference where I will lead a one credit class once a week. The conference is a day-long event giving attendees a chance to see panels talking about different parts of the music industry. After my time at Lebanon Valley, I plan to work in Radio Broadcasting with the hope of working at an internet streaming company in the future.

I grew up near Scranton, PA and I am the oldest of three with a younger brother and sister. My Brother, Douglas, is a junior in high school and my sister, Lauren, is a freshman in high school. My mother works at Golden Technologies, and my father is a construction worker for Pioneer Construction and serves in Navy Reserves.

While I am not working hard at WJTL, I am at home relaxing with the Dempsey family in Elizabethtown, where I am residing for the summer. During my free time, I enjoy spending time shopping, crocheting, watching Netflix, playing guitar and writing songs! I also enjoy taking trips and visiting new place with my boyfriend Josh while he isn’t busy working his internship at Berks Country Public Television.

My time as an intern at WJTL has been as blast! I have done so many jobs including, recording promos, assisting with live remotes, doing the weather Tuesdays on morning show, and helping out around the office. I have loved my time here and have learned so much about radio broadcasting while having a very eventful experience. I am looking forward to the rest of the summer with all of the memories, lessons and fun times! I hope to hear from you or see you at our future WJTL events!

Relationship Building Principle-Love of God

john : June 8, 2015 5:12 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Acts 10:34 and 35.

Peter said, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.”

Peter made this statement at the house of Cornelius, who was a military commander in the Roman army. Cornelius was a Gentile, and Peter was a Jew. Peter had the opportunity to share the Gospel with Cornelius and his household. At the same time, Peter was learning that this Gospel was not confined to national boundaries, but would be good news to all who embraced the testimony of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

This truth could be instrumental in stopping racism today. The starting place for mending strained relations of any kind is opening our heart to the love of God.

Embracing God’s love for people of every race and nationality is a vital-relationship building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
