Moment Of Celebration-Transformation

July 22nd, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on a life transformed by God’s grace.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Second Corinthians 3:18, “We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

The power of the Holy Spirit works in the believer’s life to reflect the character of Christ. These character qualities include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These are the qualities that were fully demonstrated by Christ and they have a growing influence on our lives as we follow Jesus step by step.  These are the qualities of the Fruit of the Spirit, and they become the ingredients that invite others to taste and see that the Lord is good.

A life transformed by God’s grace is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Praise&Worship Show: Nature Theme

July 20th, 2014 2 comments
I saw a back-to-school commercial the other day and thought, “Oh no…summer is almost over!”  Since we’re usually spending more time outdoors in these warmer months, I wanted to do a special Nature Theme…before fall returns.
If you think of it in time, today’s playlist would go so perfectly with a hike, bike ride, walk or even a cup of coffee out on the porch.  (Look up Psalm 8 for some theme-related reading material.)  WJTL’s free new app would come in handy to take these songs on the go!  (Download at the banner on the right or by searching “WJTL” on iTunes.)
Email me if you’d like to join the weekly playlist email group–or if you have theme/song/worship leader suggestions.

New Tunes at 9 Roundup with Manafest

July 17th, 2014 No comments

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to 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.)

Manafest was a recent guest on New Tunes at 9 http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/. Manafest, whose real name is Christopher Greenwood, is set to release his new project, “The Moment,” on August 5.

Manafest is a Canadian musician and author; his 2013 book “Fighter: Five Keys to Conquering Fear and Reaching Your Dreams,” was an honest document addressing the challenges of fame and struggling through times of distress, notably, coming to terms with his father’s suicide.

“Fighter” is broken down into seven chapters; the first five are devoted to book’s sub-title: the five keys to conquering fear and reaching your dreams. (Manafest outlines the keys as courage, perseverance, mindset, discipline, and will power).

For more on Manafest, and his new song, “Edge of My Life,” go to http://manafest.ca; his book, “Fighter,” is available as an e-book.

Moment Of Celebration-Words of Prophets

July 17th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the words of the prophets.

Second Peter 1:19 says, “We have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”

The main purpose of prophecy is to draw our attention to the testimony of Jesus. Even before Jesus came into the world, the words of the prophets were indicating that when He came, He would be born of a virgin and born in Bethlehem. He would come in peace, riding on a donkey. He would be rejected by His people, betrayed by a friend, and abandoned by His disciples.  He would be pierced for our transgressions, but His body would not see decay. He would once again see the light of life and be satisfied.

These predicted events tell us that God knows the future, and keeps His promises. We can trust Him to do what He says He will do.

The words of the prophets are reasons to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Bold Witnesses

July 16th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the steadfast, bold witness of the apostles.

When Jesus rose from the dead, He did not keep it a secret from His friends. According to First Corinthians 15:3, “Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,…he was buried,….he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures….and he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.” Here was a group of men who followed Jesus to Jerusalem, where they saw His suffering at the cross and the triumph of His resurrection. Brave souls will stand for the truth even in the face of persecution, but very few would die for a lie. Each of Jesus’ followers who saw Him alive again faced some type of persecution for their witness. Most of them died for their faith in Jesus.

In the life of the early church, the disciples went their separate ways, but they remained faithful to the mission of spreading the good news wherever they went. In their courageous witness for Jesus, they said to the governing authorities, who tried to silence them, “We must obey God rather than men.”

The steadfast, bold witness of Jesus’ followers is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-The Empty Tomb

July 15th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the empty tomb.

On the day of Pentecost, Peter preached a sermon that persuaded 3,000 people to come to faith in Christ. It was a moment when he preached the Gospel. In that sermon, Peter said in Acts 2:32, “God raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.”

This happened fifty days after the crucifixion of Jesus. If opponents wanted to prove Peter wrong, they could have pointed people to a tomb where they placed the body of Jesus. But the stone had been rolled away, and the tomb was empty. The empty tomb tells us that Jesus has defeated death and conquered the grave. He leads His followers to eternal life, not a mortal end. Jesus told His disciples in John 14:19, “Because I live, you also will live.”

The empty tomb of Jesus is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Stars in God’s Creation

July 14th, 2014 1 comment

JOHN SHIRK  – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the signs of God’s creation.

Psalm 19:1 says that the heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

The stars in the universe are visible to us on a clear night. Isaiah 40:26 tells us that He not only created all these, but He also calls them each by name. Just as there are many stars in the universe, there are many people on this planet. God is big enough to keep order in the universe, while at the same time, remaining personal to know us by name. Just as the heavens declare the glory of God, so we also are called to reflect His glory.

When our faith is expressed in love and with gratitude, our witness for Jesus is compared to the stars of the universe, which reflect the glory of God.

The signs of God’s creation are reasons to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
