Lesson Of Faith-A Compelling Claim

john : April 4, 2013 3:22 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In his speech on the day of Pentecost, Peter made a declaration that was both powerful and controversial. He said in Acts 2:32, “God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.”

Peter called the resurrection of Jesus a fact. It would have been recognized by many witnesses that Jesus died on a cross, but not every one had seen Jesus alive. If the claim of Jesus’ resurrection had been nonsense, Jesus’ adversaries could have produced the body to indicate otherwise. However, the Bible records that the tomb was empty and the body was gone. Opponents of Jesus did not present the evidence of a body.

A rumor was circulating that the disciples stole the body. But if that were the case, would they really have become martyrs for a lie? Those followers of Jesus who claimed to see Jesus after He rose from the dead were willing to die for that claim, which is a powerful testimony of their conviction.

Here is another compelling claim of the resurrection: Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in  your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The compelling claim of the early church leaders is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Citizens

phil : March 28, 2013 6:48 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.) On this Holy Week, I wanted to spotlight a song that talks about God’s grace at the cross. I’ve chosen a new band that we featured recently on New Tunes at 9: Citizens. Citizens is led by singer Zach Bolen; the Seattle-based, alternative-worship band is connected to the music ministry of Mars Hill Church. The first single by Citizens is “Made Alive,” a song propelled by a funky bass line, and a big chorus with multi-layered voices. The lyrics include, “you have bought me back with the riches of your amazing grace and relentless love.” Zach Bolen talked about the song on New Tunes at 9. For more on Citizens, go to the band’s facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MUSIC.CITIZENS?fref=ts; the new project is available online at Amazon.

Lesson Of Faith-The Good Confession

john : March 28, 2013 3:26 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – First Timothy 6:18 talks about Jesus making the good confession before Pontius Pilate.

In accusing Jesus of blasphemy, the religious leaders handed Him over to Pontius Pilate. That is when Pilate questioned Him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”

This was Jesus’ testimony before Pilate: “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

Pilate said, “You are a king then!”

Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Pilate responded by asking, “What is truth?” And then he walked away from Jesus. The good confession of Jesus reveals Himself as a king who is not of this world and the source of truth to set the captives free from the lies of this world.  In a world of many voices offering freedom, the most important voice to heed is Jesus Christ.

Christ’s good confession before Pilate is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

Lesson Of Faith-Jesus Washes Feet

john : March 26, 2013 2:59 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – It happened the night before Jesus was crucified. He grabbed a basin and a towel. He knelt down to serve the disciples by washing their feet.

In this simple act, Jesus taught us that service is an act of humility. Jesus literally lowered Himself to serve the disciples as He washed their feet. If Jesus was willing to do that, then none of His servants are so great that they are above performing acts of service that can help others in practical ways.

Jesus said to His disciples in John 13:14, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”

The washing of the disciples’ feet is an example of service taught by Jesus and is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

Friendship Community and WJTL

phredd : March 22, 2013 12:16 pm : Fred McNaughton, Staff Pages, Uncategorized

Last night we had the special blessing of hosting a tour with the Aktion Club from Friendship Community. Friendship Community is a Christian Ministry Cultivating Capabilities of Individuals with Developmental Disabilities in Lancaster and Lebanon Counties of South Central Pennsylvania since 1972.   Friendship’s Milt Stoltzfus brought about 25 of their group to tour the Junction Center and find out how Radio and WJTL works.  Unbeknown to us, they had also chosen WJTL as one of their organizations to support financially.

Many of the Friendship folks listen to WJTL  and count us as friends.  One of our on-air highlights each year is when the Friendship Singers come on the morning show and sing Christmas Carols.

Here is a pic of the presentation of their donation and another shot of the tour.  Thanks Friendship Community.  We love and appreciate you!

Lesson Of Faith-Cleansing Of The Temple

john : March 21, 2013 5:46 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – On the week leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, He spent some time in Jerusalem. He entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying  and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.’”

The temple was designed to be a place of worship, but by the time Jesus stepped onto the scene, it became a place where some people took advantage of others financially. Jesus took action to cleanse the temple to rid the temple area of this practice. Jesus had zeal for God’s house to be a place of pure devotion and worship.

This scene becomes more personal when we realize what the Bible says about the body of the believer. First Corinthians 6:19 tells us that our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Where there is corruption within, Jesus will take action to cleanse the temple, so that our bodies will be houses of worship, purely devoted to Christ.

The cleansing of the temple is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
