Life Application Truth-Grace That Brings Freedom

john : September 10, 2012 2:52 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From John 8, verses 10 and 11.

Jesus asked a woman caught in adultery, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

“No one, sir”, she said.

“Then neither do I condemn you. Go, now and leave your life of sin.”

This woman must have thought her life was coming to an end as her hidden sin of adultery was exposed in public. The religious leaders used this opportunity to try to trap Jesus. Their main goal was not to find fault with the woman, but Jesus. They said to Jesus, “The Law of Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”

Jesus responds by writing on the ground, and then saying, “If any of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

No one threw a stone at her. The woman was spared the death penalty. Jesus was offering her a pardon from her past, and freedom for her future. In a world of sin, Jesus teaches us to abstain from finger-pointing blame and to confront sin with grace. The evidence of our sin gives us no platform to condemn another person. Just like with the woman caught in adultery, the forgiveness Jesus offers is an opportunity to turn from our sin and follow Him with a pure heart.  Isaiah 30:15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation.”

Repentance is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

Life Application Truth-Passover

john : September 6, 2012 2:10 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From Exodus 12:13.

Recalling the first Passover: The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.

Judgment was coming on all the gods of Egypt. But the word was sent out to the Israelite community that they would be spared this judgment by taking a lamb without defect, slaughtering it, and taking some of the blood and putting it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs.

As we fast forward time to Jesus, we see that He was the Lamb of God without defect, who became the sufficient sacrifice to spare us from the coming judgment. Through faith in the name of Jesus, our sins are not held against us. The wrath of God passes over us because the grace of God protects us.

First Corinthians 5:7 says, “For Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore,  let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth.”

Celebrating Jesus with sincerity and truth is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

Life Application Truth-Christ Crucified

john : September 5, 2012 2:45 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From First Corinthians 1, verses 22 to 24.

Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Here we learn that our racial background is not a hindrance to the Gospel. God’s love extends to all the people of the world. Jews and Gentiles are invited to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. However, unbelief is a barrier that keeps people separated from God.

The Gospel is simple enough for a child to understand, and at the same time, contains mysteries that perplex the scholar. It brings comfort to those who are disturbed, and disturbs those who insist on being comfortable.  The message of the cross is foolishness and weakness to the unbeliever, but to those who believe the Gospel, it is the wisdom and power of God.

Through Jesus, we have a testimony of God’s grace to provide for a forgiven past, a present help, and a future hope.

Belief in the Gospel is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

Life Application Truth-Grace and Truth

john : September 4, 2012 2:17 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From John 1:14.

Speaking of Jesus, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The life of Jesus was measured in the fullness of grace and truth, which overflows into the hearts of His followers. There are key questions that we can ask ourselves to discern to what degree Jesus is influencing our lives by His grace and truth.

Do I seek forgiveness or vengeance when someone has wronged me?

Do I hunger for God’s Word as a person’s stomach hungers for food?

Does the love of Jesus for me make a difference in how I treat other people?

Am I committed to live by the principles of the Bible and promote them as truth?

Have I received the free gift of grace that Jesus offered at the cross and empty grave?

Am I willing to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to be guided by His counsel?

Our honest answers to these questions will reveal to what extent we are impacted by the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.

A life aligned with God’s grace and truth is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
