Moment Of Celebration-The Joy Of Listening

john : March 10, 2014 4:58 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the joy of listening to Jesus.

Mary and Martha were sisters who both loved Jesus. When He came to their house, they went into very different modes. Mary went into listening mode. Martha went into work mode.

Mary was sitting at the Lord’s feet, listening to what He said. Her heart was open to what Jesus had said to her. Meanwhile, Martha was caught up in household chores: cleaning, sweeping, getting dinner ready, that sort of thing. The Bible says she was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She starts to resent the fact that Mary is not helping her. She says to Jesus, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

Then comes Jesus’ gentle rebuke, which expresses His love for Martha and at the same time, His stamp of approval for Mary’s responsiveness to His words. “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary serves as an example for us to take time to enjoy our relationship with Jesus. Spend quality time with Him. Cherish His every word, and follow what He says to us.

The joy of listening to Jesus is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

phil : March 6, 2014 5:44 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Citizens. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Zach Bolen of Citizens was my guest this week on New Tunes at 9. Citizens, who released their self-titled debut in 2013, create alternative worship music for the Mars Hill label in Seattle. (Zach Bolen serves as a deacon, and leads Citizens, in the University District of Seattle.)

Citizens’ first single, “Made Alive,” was propelled a funky bass line, and features a big chorus with multi-layered voices. The second single, “Jesus!” includes the line, “God of resurrection, conqueror of death, ruler over everything. The Lord of lords and the King of kings.”  Zach Bolen spoke about the new song on New Tunes at 9 http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/.

For more on Citizens, go to http://marshill.com/music/artists/citizens. Citizens’ music is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and, for a limited time, on vinyl record.

Moment Of Celebration-A Lasting Legacy Of Faith

john : March 4, 2014 5:04 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the lasting legacy of enduring faith.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 1:6: “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

When we come to faith in Jesus, God gives us a mission to carry out while we live on the earth. Each of us has a race to run in the honor of our king. While we run the race of faith, God will give us opportunities to spread the aroma of His love in our acts of service, gracious words, and godly example. Other people will be transformed by the power of the Gospel as a result of our faithful witness, and their testimony will have impact on people’s lives with whom we had no personal contact. Yet, the Lord will use our witness for Christ indirectly to reach people we have never met.

Family trees often mark the line of ancestors from one generation to another. When God’s people gather in heaven, it will be interesting to study the spiritual family tree and see whose faith in the 1700’s might have led to the conversion of someone in the 21st century, because of their enduring faith in Jesus. The impact of our work on the earth is not completed at the end of our lives. It continues until the return of Jesus Christ.

The lasting legacy of an enduring faith is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Family Reunion

john : March 3, 2014 4:40 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on a family reunion in the Old Testament.

Joseph was estranged from his brothers. When Joseph was a teenager, his brothers hated him to the point that they were willing to sell him to foreign merchants. They received money in the process of getting rid of him.

Little did they know that many years later, Joseph would be the one man who had the power of whether they would live or die. A famine had covered the land. Joseph was in a place of leadership in Egypt to manage the food supplies that were stored away for such a time as the drought.  Joseph’s brothers were dependent on Joseph to feed them.

Through our sin and mistreatment of Jesus, we were the reason that Jesus went to the cross. He did this willingly to demonstrate His mercy for unworthy sinners. He returned our contempt with His forgiveness. In this way, Joseph’s story is an example of how God can turn what is meant for evil with good.

Joseph said to his brothers in Genesis 50:20: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children. And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.”

When God’s love heals fractured relationships, that is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

My Dawson McAllister Interview

kristi : March 3, 2014 4:01 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

My very first radio “experience” was back in the early 90’s on “Dawson McAllister Live”.  I was in Jr. High at the time and loved listening to WJTL for hours and hours a day.  Dawson’s show aired live Sunday nights; and I listened in while doing last-minute homework assignments.  I really connected with the callers and how Dawson helped them through crisis situations.  So, I wrote in to be a prayer partner.  One day, I got a phone call from a nice lady saying that Dawson wanted to interview me on the show.  What a shock, what a privilege!  The lady set it all up.  That Sunday, I cleared everybody out of the kitchen and did a few tests to make sure the phone rang like it should.  I sat on a stool and stared at the phone, waiting for the big moment…  After what felt like about a zillion years, the phone rang and someone explained what would happen.  I still remember hearing Dawson introduce me on his show as “Kristi From Pennsylvania”.  I was pretty nervous and remember saying mostly “yes” and “uh-huh” to his questions about what it meant to me to be one of his prayer partners.  It. was. awesome!

Fast forward about 20 years and now the tables will turn!  I’ll be interviewing Dawson this Thursday about an event he’s coming to town to host.  It’s still all cenetered around passion for youth, and I’m thrilled that we’ll get to chat again!  I plan to say more than “yes” and “uh-huh” this time.  ;]

I hope you you’ll tune in and hear it live this Thursday around 2:30 p.m.  Below, you’ll find the details on his upcoming event.
