New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Brandon Heath

phil : February 19, 2015 5:33 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Brandon Heath wanted his new record, “No Turning Back,” to be about “life lessons from my own journey, such as forgiveness, fear, love and the power of relationships.” He continues by saying, “I was thinking about the journey of my salvation and how I could write a record about that. ‘No Turning Back’ is the  re-telling of the story; I wanted to capture the moment that I first met the Lord.” To hear songs off ‘No Turning Back,” go to http://www.brandonheath.net/, and listen to New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9:00 on WJTL.

Relationship-Building Principle-Focus Beyond Ourselves

john : February 19, 2015 3:42 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Corinthians 13:5.

“Love is not self-seeking.”

Sin is an “I” centered word. So is Pride. Selfish desires get in the way of thriving relationships.

The focus of true love goes beyond ourselves. In the context of our relationship with God, the focus is on bringing glory to God. In the context of our relationship with others, the focus is on blessing them with encouragement, a servant’s heart, and edifying words.

Joy can be an acronym for “Jesus, Others, Yourself”. With those priorities in that order, the door is open for us to experience the joy of living out the Gospel.

Focusing beyond ourselves is a relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Patience and Kindness

john : February 13, 2015 3:54 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Corinthians 13:4.

“Love is patient, love is kind.”

With love, we recognize that people are in process. They have room for growing in maturity and character development, just as we have room for growth in these areas. With patience, we give our friends and neighbors time and opportunity to grow. We work with them so that they might develop into the kind of person that God calls them to be. Jesus is our ultimate example of patience. Mark 16 says that as the disciples went out and preached the Gospel, the Lord worked with them. He was working with men who had room for growth.

With love, we also exercise kindness. This means that we have a friendly disposition in our relationships. We show consideration for the needs of others, and seek to be a blessing in their lives. There is great influence in kindness. Romans 2:4 talks about God’s kindness leading us toward repentance. Lives can change in dramatic ways when kindness is expressed in our relationships.

Patience and kindness are qualities that benefit our marriages, family relationships, and friendships.

Exercising patience and kindness is a relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: For King & Country

phil : February 12, 2015 6:29 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – For King & Country’s latest project “Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong,” was just named “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” at the 2015 Grammy Awards. The Australian duo of Joel and Luke Smallbone have continued to modify their sound; the brothers’ confidence in each other has strengthened their ability to write songs that resonate with fans worldwide (and reach out to a new audience who may not know their music; case in point, FKC played the NBC Today show recently). For more on the band go to http://www.forkingandcountry.com/today?ref=http://www.bing.com/search?q=for+king+and+country&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IESR02  —-and check out the video for the song “Fix My Eyes.”

Relationship-Building Principle-Doing what is good in God’s eyes

john : February 11, 2015 2:56 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Micah 6:8.

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Following this good path will guide us into relationships that bring honor to God.

To act justly means that we treat people with fairness and without partiality. We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We stand for the truth and refuse to be influenced by bribes. Acting justly flows out of a commitment to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.

Loving mercy means that it gives us great delight to offer a helping hand to those in needy places, like the Good Samaritan who aided a man on the side of the road beaten by robbers. Loving mercy also means being gracious and patient with people who have stumbled into sin. The love of Jesus fills us with compassion for the condition of their soul.

Walking humbly with God means that we acknowledge the authority of Jesus over us and follow Him day-by-day, step by step.

Doing what is good in the eyes of the Lord is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
