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: “Dubbed and Freq’d-A Remix Project,” by TobyMac, “Love Come To Life,” from Big Daddy Weave, and available this week: “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard,” from The Choir. “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard” is another sonic masterpiece! The project is full of lyrical poetry, mystery, an impeccable sense of time and space, and the Choir’s heavenly (sometimes haunting) “musical soundscapes.” These “musical soundscapes,” or “sheets of sound” are the creation of singer/guitarist Derri Daugherty, lyricist/percussionist Steve Hindalong, and Dan Michael’s, a gifted musician who plays the lyricon, a musical instrument, which he calls a “wind-controlled midi-saxophone.” For more on the dreamy, compelling sound of the Choir, go to http://www.thechoir.net/ You can preview songs off the new project, “The Loudest Sound Ever Heard,” review special music packages available for purchase, watch videos and sign up for band updates.
JOHN SHIRK – From Proverbs 14:21.
“He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.”
The effective grace of God on our lives teaches us to view other people as having value to God, just as we recognize that we are valuable to God. This translates into living out the second greatest command in all of Scripture according to Jesus: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” To despise our neighbor is to go against that command.
Another way in which God’s grace teaches us to live is to be generous toward the needy. Such expressions of generosity include helping to feed the poor, or looking after orphans and widows in their distress, which may include foster care, adoption, or checking in on an elderly neighbor who lives alone. If someone is grieving the loss of a loved one, it may be fitting for us to spend time with them and mourn with them. There are needs all around us-tangible needs, emotional needs, and spiritual needs. With a sensitive heart toward God, He will teach us to be sensitive to those in a time of need.
Love for our neighbor and Kindness to the needy are vital signs of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
JOHN SHIRK – From Colossians 3:16.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”
The Apostle Paul was urging followers of Jesus to soak in God’s Word like a sponge. There are various ways that the word of Christ can take root in our lives. We can hear God’s Word at the local church in venues like Sunday School, Small group Bible Study or a sermon from the pastor. We can also wake up in the morning and make Bible reading a priority before we go to school or work. Or if we are more attentive at night, to read the Bible before we go to bed.
Christian music is another way to hear the word of Christ in a meaningful way. Songs have a way of helping us to remember certain Scriptures as they are set to rhythm. So, God also provides music as a teaching tool to help us internalize the word of God. Sometimes, hearing or sharing testimonies of God’s faithfulness highlights how God’s Word is living and active in the hearts of believers.
Filling our mind and heart with the word of Christ is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

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.
