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 JJ Heller was a recent guest on New Tunes at 9. http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/ (JJ and her husband, Dave, performed at the Junction Center earlier this year; click the ‘videos’ tab at wjtl.com.) JJ Heller’s sixth studio project is called, “Loved.” JJ says, “Loved is a collection of songs that belong together; there’s a common thread connection in all of them. It’s setting our sights on the horizon instead of the few steps ahead.” For more on JJ Heller, go to http://www.jjheller.com/. You’ll find links to download her music on iTunes, plus facebook (where a fan recently commented, “Thank you for sharing your life with us. Most performers don’t; you’re so down-to-earth.”) I also recommend that you check out her creative lyric video for the new song, “Redemption.” The video is shot with a camera overlooking a table; JJ’s hand is seen holding markers and writing the lyrics to the song on a large, unruled notepad. Near the end of the video, the paper becomes sprinkled with cut-out butterflies and flowers. (You can find the the new lyric video at http://www.jjheller.com/)
JOHN SHIRK – A defense attorney represents someone facing a lawsuit or criminal prosecution.
In the courtroom of heaven, God is the judge, and Satan is the prosecuting attorney. He is our accuser. He makes a compelling case for our guilt, as he recites the list of sins that we have committed in our lifetime. But then another voice comes forward to defend us. Jesus makes the case for our innocence, not by denying we did those things, but by acknowledging the shedding of His blood to cover our sins. This is what it’s like for the person who confesses their need for Jesus to save them from their sin.
First John 2:1 says, “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the whole world.”
The redemption of Jesus as a defense attorney in a courtroom is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

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.

JOHN SHIRK-One of the foundational teachings of the Christian faith is the moral depravity of humanity. Apart from Christ’s influence, we are lost in sinful and selfish ways. Sin is at the heart of our problem.
Jeremiah 17:9 says “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”
The heart is so deceptive that it is possible for us to deceive ourselves into thinking we are in a better condition than we really are.
The good news about Jesus is that He is our remedy of hope. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. We can be set free from guilt and experience forgiveness through the sacrifice of Jesus for us on the cross. What is incurable for man is possible with God.
Jesus says in Luke 5:31, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” For the sickness of our sin, there is a cure, and his name is Jesus.
The heart of our problem and our remedy of hope is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
JOHN SHIRK – The fall of Adam and Eve.
After God created man in His own image, something terrible happened, which helps to explain why there is evil in this world to this very day. Adam and Eve ate fruit from the one forbidden tree that God commanded them to avoid.
Genesis 3:6 says, “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.”
From this account, we can learn a lot about the forbidden fruit of our own lives, whether it’s the temptation to steal from the cookie jar or take someone else’s possessions.
Before eating the forbidden fruit, the woman saw the fruit of the tree. It was pleasing to look at. It captured the affections of her heart. Then, after eating it, she exported the fruit to her husband, who also ate it. Forbidden fruit can be like that today. Our heart is drawn to disobedience when our focus is in the wrong place. Our own moral failures can have a contagious effect on others, just as Eve persuaded Adam to eat the forbidden fruit too.
Their failure teaches us to focus our vision on the good things that God has provided for us, rather than forbidden things.
The Fall of Adam and Eve is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
