LIFE APPLICATION TRUTH-WHO DO YOU SAY I AM

john : October 22, 2012 3:25 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From Luke 9:20.

Jesus was having a conversation with His disciples. He asked them what other people were saying about His identity. Different names were brought up in response to His question. Some were saying that Jesus is John the Baptist. Others were saying Elijah. And still others were saying that Jesus was one of the prophets of long ago come back to life.

Then Jesus asked, “But what about you? Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”

Peter was acknowledging Jesus as being sent by God to be the Savior of the world. What we believe about Jesus will affect the vital areas of our lives, including our eternal salvation, our influence in the world, and our sense of purpose for living life. What we believe about Jesus will affect how we treat other people. We will heed carefully the “one another” commands of the Bible. Love one another. Encourage one another. Be kind and compassionate to one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Peter was blessed for recognizing Jesus as the Messiah. So will we. First John 4:15 says “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him, and he in God.”

Acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

NEW TUNES AT 9 ROUNDUP: MIKESCHAIR

phil : October 18, 2012 5:58 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. Available this week is “The Way We Worship,” by FFH, featuring their new song, “As For Me.” Last Sunday, WJTL presented another Live From the Junction Center event, featuring Matthew West and Mikeschair. Mikeschair vocalist and guitarist Mike Grayson joined band mate Kyle Schonewill for 2 acoustic songs, “You Loved Me First” and “Someone Worth Dying For.” Both tracks are available on Mikeschair’s latest project “A Beautiful Life.” Mikeschair was formed at Belmont University, in Nashville, TN. To date, they’ve released 3 EP’s and 2 full-length projects–all are highly recommended! In addition to making music, Mikeschair are highly involved in charitable activities. In conjunction with Food For The Hungry, Mikeschair formed a food collection charity called “Mikestable.” The inspiration came when they noticed hungry people gathering at a food pantry at a church near their apartment. With that in mind, the band continues to invite their fans to bring nonperishable food items to select shows.  Mike Grayson says that with the new project, “A Beautiful Life,” “We wanted this record to take a very hopeful approach. God is weaving together a beautiful life whether we can see it or not.”  For more on Mikeschair, go to http://www.mikeschair.com/

LIFE APPLICATION TRUTH-INFLUENCE

john : October 17, 2012 3:42 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From Esther 4:14.

A quote from Mordecai to Queen Esther, “Who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”

This is perhaps the most often quoted passage in the book of Esther. Even though this book of the Bible does not mention God by name, His hand is clearly working in the circumstances that are unfolding in this book. An evil plot by Haman to wipe out the Jews is thwarted by Queen Esther. She used her influence to spare the Jews from annihilation. Her relative Mordecai offered her the encouragement she needed to take a personal risk for the sake of saving her people.

Whatever platform God has given us, that is an opportunity to stand for what is right. It may involve personal risk. We might pay the price of persecution for standing against evil. At the same time, we will know the joy of developing a deeper relationship with God as we follow Jesus with a loyal heart.

There are general purposes that God has for His followers: Knowing Him better, Glorifying Jesus, Building the church by the use of our spiritual gifts, and being a witness for Jesus to a world who needs His grace. For such a time as this, God is raising up His people to shine the light of grace and truth on a world darkened by division and deception.

Using our position as a platform to do God’s will is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

LIFE APPLICATION TRUTH-AN ENDURING CITY

john : October 16, 2012 4:54 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – From Hebrews 13:14.

“For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.”

There are some major differences between being a citizen on the earth and a child of God’s Kingdom. The things of this world are temporary. The treasures of God’s kingdom are eternal. Our achievements on this earth that lead to trophies, medals, and honors will fade away, but our relationship with God and our service for Him will last forever. Our anticipation of heaven inspires us to be more productive, not less productive while we live on the earth.

In light of keeping our focus on the city that is to come, the next verse (Hebrews 13:15) says, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with sacrifices God is pleased.”

Seeking first after God’s Kingdom and His righteousness is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
