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. New projects available now: “The End Is Where We Begin,” by Thousand Foot Krutch, “Clear The Stage,” by Jimmy Needham,“ and “A Thousand Little Things” from Point of Grace (released last week). “A Thousand Little Things” by Point of Grace is the latest in a long line of projects from the successful vocal group. Initially recording as a quartet, Point of Grace released their self-titled debut in 1993; the project contained the song “I’ll Be Believing,” the first of over 20 consecutive number one Christian radio hits. For more on Point of Grace, go to http://www.pointofgrace.net/, where, between now and May 20, you can receive free shipping on any order placed in their online store. You’ll also find the Point of Grace iTunes store and details on the group’s ‘Graceful Living’ radio show. Point of Grace stopped by the Junction Center in February for a Q&A session with a live studio audience, talked about their new project, “A Thousand Little Things,” and ended with an outstanding a cappella version of Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America,” written by Berlin while serving in the US Army, and revised by him in 1938. Special thanks to Shelley Breen, Denise Jones at Leigh Cappillino for stopping by the Junction Center!
JOHN SHIRK – From Proverbs 15:4.
“The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”
While a deceitful tongue distorts reality, a healing tongue brings the reality of Jesus into a specific situation.
A deceitful tongue perverts justice and slanders innocent people. A healing tongue stands up for justice and seeks to protect innocent lives, especially those who have no voice.
A deceitful tongue pollutes the environment with dirty talk. A healing tongue is a breath of fresh air.
A deceitful tongue tears down and ruins people’s lives. A healing tongue builds up wounded hearts.
There is much damage and repair in people’s hearts by the words of other people.
Through the influence of Christ, we can use words of faith, hope, and love today. We can refuse to gossip. We can refuse to manipulate others with our words. We can honor the words of Colossians 4:6, which says, “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt.” In this way, we will spread the flavor of Christ.
The use of healing words is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
JOHN SHIRK – From Psalm 63, verse 3.
David said to God, “Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”
This is an expression of someone who is thinking constantly of God’s love and embracing His love as a dear treasure. This is someone who has an ongoing relationship with God. David is not in pursuit of religious duty. He is responding to divine love that keeps him alive. One reason that God’s love is more valuable than life is because our bodies will fail us someday. God’s love never fails, and will endure the test of time long after we have gone to the grave.
In light of God’s precious love, how can we honor Him with our lips?
There are various ways. We can sing a worship song to Him. The Lord delights in a joyful noise from our heart, even if we have trouble staying on key. We can tell others the good news of God’s love, so that they might hear and believe the Gospel. We can also use words of kindness, encouragement, and honesty to reflect the attitude of Christ. In these ways, the name of Jesus is honored with our lips. Let’s allow God’s love to be the influence of our words.
Words that honor God from a devoted heart are vitals signs of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
JOHN SHIRK – From Acts 8, verses 1 and 4.
Following the stoning of Stephen, the first recorded Christian martyr of the early church, “On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria……
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”
Jesus said that the Gospel would start in Jerusalem, and then spread to Judea and Samaria. Here in Acts 8, we learn that He actually worked through persecution to spread the word beyond Jerusalem.
There was freedom of movement for the early disciples to go from place and place and an unwavering commitment to Christ that would not be moved. Those were the ingredients that led to the spread of the Gospel.
While persecution is painful, it also a powerful witness of someone who is so convinced of the testimony of Christ, and so dedicated to Him, that the purity of their witness shines through the sacrifices they make for Him.
Perseverance through persecution is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
