New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Hawk Nelson

phil : April 25, 2013 7:11 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.) Hawk Nelson has just released their sixth project, “Made.” It’s the first project to be released without longtime vocalist, Jason Dunn.  (Replacing Jason Dunn is the band’s longtime guitarist, Jon Steingard, making Hawk Nelson officially known as a rock ‘n’ roll trio.) And speaking of rock ‘n’ roll, credit with discovering the band is often given to Trevor McVevan of Thousand Foot Krutch; both band’s hail from the city of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. For more on Hawk Nelson, go to http://www.hawknelson.com/. You’ll find a music preview page and link to buy the disc on iTunes. If you click on the band’s you-tube page, you can watch the official music video for “Words,” featuring MercyMe lead singer, Bart Millard. And be sure to check out the video, “The Making of Made,” and the band’s facebook page, too.

Bibles Behind the Lines

promojohn : April 22, 2013 2:52 pm : John Staffieri

WJTL is teaming with Bible League International to provide Bibles to those in desperate need.  From South Asia, across the massive Indian subcontinent, and throughout the closed nations of  the Middle East, tens or even hundreds of thousands of persecuted Christians long for Bibles.

Please join the WJTL community and Bible League International in a special effort to rush God’s  Word to some of the most spiritually hungry parts of the world. Your tax-deductible gift to the  “Bibles Behind the Lines” campaign will change lives, one Bible at a time.

Because of a special “Bibles Behind the Lines” campaign challenge grant, every $5 you give sends two Bibles.  A gift of $50 sends 20 Bibles. $100 sends 40. A generous gift of $500 sends an amazing 200 Bibles to believers “behind the lines.”  We are hoping the WJTL community can work together to provide 3600 Bibles before May 19th.

To join the effort, you can click here or call 1-800-YES-WORD

Persecuted Christians from the Middle East to South Asia need your prayers, and they need Bibles! When you join Bible League and WJTL in this vital effort, your gift will rush Bibles where they are needed most!

Lesson Of Faith-Height Of God’s Love

john : April 22, 2013 2:51 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In Ephesians 3:18, the Apostle Paul prayed that we might grasp the height of God’s love for us.

God’s love is tall to the extreme. Psalm 103:11 says, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.” His love is destined to take His people to new heights, because Jesus said that He would come back and take His followers to be with Him in heaven.

Another way of looking at the height of God’s love is to consider a tower. The name of the Lord is compared to a strong tower that provides safety for the righteous. Towers in cities typically become landmarks for visitors. They might become tourist attractions. They have names that become famous worldwide. The love of God stands tall as a place of refuge in times of danger or uncertainty. We are wise to run there and draw attention to the love of God expressed through the testimony of Jesus.

The height of God’s love is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: All Things New

phil : April 18, 2013 5:49 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.) All Things New was one of 3 bands that stopped by the Junction Center for a live performance last weekend. (All Things New just released their debut, self-titled project, on BEC Recordings.) It’s always exciting when a young band stops by the Junction Center, eager to share their faith, their stories, and their music. The band’s first single, “New Man,” is already making an impression with listeners. (The song chronicles the fractured home life of lead singer Garrett Hornbuckle, and it’s currently charting on WJTL’s Top 25 Countdown.)

For more on All Things New, go to http://allthingsnewband.com/Site/HOME.html; you’ll find links to iTunes, facebook, twitter and more.You can also go to our homepage; be sure to click on the videos tab http://wjtl.com/videos/ for Live from the Junction Center performances from, among others, All Things New, Tenth Avenue North and Rend Collective.

Lesson Of Faith-Length Of God’s Love

john : April 18, 2013 3:32 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In Ephesians 3:18, the Apostle Paul prayed that we might grasp the length of God’s love for us.

The length of God’s love can be considered in light of distance and time. Jesus came from heaven to earth to rescue us from the wages of sin. Isaiah 59:1 says, “The arm of the Lord is not too short to save.” Wherever we are in this world, we are never beyond His reach. As a familiar worship song declares, “You came from heaven to earth to show the way. From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay, from the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky, Lord, I lift your name on high.”

On the time line, the length of God’s love can be compared to an infinite line. The LORD is described in Deuteronomy 33:27 as the eternal God. He has always been, still is, and always will be God. Through faith in Jesus Christ, we have a connection with God the Father, which lasts forever. We will never have to say tearful good-byes in heaven.

The length of God’s love is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

Lesson Of Faith-The Width Of God’s Love

john : April 17, 2013 3:54 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In Ephesians 3:18, the Apostle Paul prayed that we might grasp the width of God’s love for us.

John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God’s love is wide enough to extend around the world and draw people of all cultures into His eternal family. The one thing that His people have in common is that they have received His gift of grace through Jesus Christ, and what He accomplished for us at the cross.

As we come into fellowship with God through faith in Jesus, He removes our transgressions from us as far as the east is from the west.

The width of God’s love reveals the global impact of His love to reach every nation by the end of the age, and the personal impact of His love to separate us from our sins.

The width of God’s love is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

A One of a Kind Trip That Will Change Lives

stacey : April 16, 2013 12:35 pm : missions, Stacey Gagne, Staff Pages

STACEY GAGNE –

During our 26 Hours of Compassion events in 2010 and 2013, WJTL listeners have sponsored children from 2 specific projects in Ethiopia through Compassion International.  These sponsors are  beginning to receive details about a trip scheduled to take place this August 3 through 10!  We will be traveling together from the listening area as a team to serve alongside the local church and Compassion staff at our projects in Ethiopia.  We’ll worship together, spend time at the student centers and meet with the staff there,  play with the children and serve through some fun VBS style activities.  Our team will visit some of the children’s homes,  participate in service projects like painting, clean up and other hands on work.  It’s going to be a treasure to spend time with our sponsored children and even treat them to a visit at an amusement park.  There will also be time for sight seeing and more.  I can’t wait!!!  I know that there are many church staff, children and families eager to meet the people that are impacting their lives!

Our trip will enable us to better sense God’s heart for this country, to join together as a community, to get to know the culture where our sponsored children live, and see the ministry of Compassion International first hand.   It will mean so much to the children and their families to know that you would come and visit them!  I am confident that lives will be changed as our community joins together to bring God’s message of love to these children and their communities in Ethiopia.

I will continue to give updates and share more about the trip and even give opportunities  for those who can’t travel with us to get involved.  Please pray for us as we continue to plan details,  for God to prepare our hearts and for provision for the listeners who will join us.
