Lesson of Faith-The Calling of Moses

john : September 17, 2013 4:22 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – At the burning bush, God was calling Moses to lead His people out of Egypt toward the Promised Land.

Moses needed some encouragement. He had reasons to excuse himself from this assignment.

“Who am I to go to Pharoah to make such a request?”

“What if I go back to the Israelites and they don’t believe that You sent me?”

“I am not eloquent. I am slow of speech.”

“Lord, please send someone else to do it.”

For every excuse that Moses made, God responded with assurances that He would make provisions to help Moses accomplish the task.

Where God calls us into service, He provides us with His presence and resources to help us fulfill His calling on our lives. Moses ran out of excuses, and did go back to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.

The calling of Moses is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: OBB

phil : September 12, 2013 7:08 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

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.) The Oswald Brothers Band, also known as OBB, is a new band signed to Curb Records. OBB is a 3-piece worship-pop band, comprised of three brothers: Zach, Jacob and Nick Oswald. OBB first came to national attention when they were encouraged by their grandfather to enter the CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off.” (They placed third in the competition.) OBB serves on the worship team at Atlanta’s Passion City Church, the congregation founded by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio. OBB lead singer Zach Oswald was my guest last week on New Tunes at 9. Zach shared the story surrounding the group’s new song, “Come on Home,” part of which was inspired by the reaction he was receiving to his mohawk haircut. For more on OBB, go to; you’ll find an acoustic performance of “Come on Home,” facebook, twitter and a link to buy the new EP on iTunes.

Lesson Of Faith-Tower Of Refuge

john : September 11, 2013 5:29 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK- Today, WJTL remembers the wisdom of finding our security in God’s grace.

Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”

A tower is a symbol of strength and might.  When 9/11 happened 12 years ago, the towers collapsed in New York City. Thousands of people lost their lives in the terror attacks. Our sense of security was shaken that day.

While the towers of this world are strong, they are not totally secure. Yet, in the spiritual sense, there is a place of true and lasting security.  We can find security for our soul by placing our trust in the grace of Jesus Christ. That is where we find eternal life, and a Kingdom that cannot be shaken by the dark forces of this world.

We can run to Jesus. He is a Mighty Fortress, strong and powerful to save us from our sins and protect us from the enemy who seeks to destroy us.

Finding our security in God’s grace is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

John Shirk
