Relationship Building Principle-Commitment

July 10th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Ruth 1:16.

The book of Ruth opens in the land of Moab, reporting the deaths of three men. The surviving widows were Naomi, and her daughters-in-law Ruth and Orpah.

Naomi was originally from Bethlehem. After her husband and sons died, she was bitter in spirit, and decided to go back to Bethlehem. Naomi’s heart was so heavy that she believed that the Lord’s hand was against her. Tragedies can lead us to believe that way sometimes. But God had not abandoned Naomi.

In her bitterness, she told Orpah and Ruth to return to Moab, so that they could remarry. But Ruth was tenacious in her commitment to Naomi. She uttered these famous words, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God my God.” She was committed to Naomi as a daughter for life. In addition, she was drawn to Naomi’s faith in the Lord and would follow the same God that Naomi worshiped.

Ruth would be grafted into the line of ancestors that led to the birth of Jesus. When we are grafted into the family of God through faith, our story becomes part of His story, which is our blessing for His glory.

Commitment is a vital-relationship building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Creation Fest Highlights

July 10th, 2015 No comments

INTERN KATLYN: As apart of my internship, I had the opportunity to work with the WJTL Road Crew at Creation Festival 2015. This has been one of the biggest highlights of my summer by far! During my time at Creation I had the chance to do many different things including, working the promotional tent, helping in the kids tent, taking pictures around the festival, meeting listeners, and having fun with the WJTL Road Crew! I wanted to take the time to touch on some highlights of my time at Creation Festival.

Colton Dixon: At Creation, I got the chance to work Press for the station. One of the tasks was to take pictures of some artists during there performances. The artist that I wanted to see the most that week was Colton Dixon and boy was I able to see him preform! He was so amazing and really brought a great sense of energy during his performance. His music is so uplifting! I always enjoy listening to him in my car, so it was nice to finally see him live.

The Kids Tent & The Doughnut Man: Working the kids tent was such a joy in the mornings. I enjoy being apart of Kids Cookie Break events and helping out Lisa, but this time, it was so much better! There were so many kids, a lot of energy and many great performances. One of my favorite parts about working in the tent was seeing the Doughnut Man! As a little kid, I went to Sunday School with my mom. Growing up there, we would always watch VeggieTales and the Doughnut Man. It was very exciting to relive my childhood and it was fun because knew some of the songs too! There were even a lot of of kids my age. It really shows how long he has been around doing music!

My time at Creation Festival can only be described in one work, “Unforgettable”. There was so much to do, many people to meet, and I had fun with everything we did! I had been to creation for a day in the past, but working with WJTL was a great and different way to experience Creation! Everything that I was apart of was so much fun and it was an experience that I truly will never forget! Hope that I get to join the team at future Creation Festivals. As for now, I am looking forward to future WJTL events and hope to see you there!

Relationship Building Principle-Spirit of Cooperation

July 7th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK -Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Joshua 1:14 and 15.

As the Israelites were about to cross the Jordan River to go into the Promised Land, Joshua had a few words with two and a half of the tribes. These were the tribes who were planning to settle east of the Jordan, and were already in possession of their land.

He said, “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you. ‘The LORD your God is giving you rest and has granted you this land. Your wives, your children, and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, fully armed, must cross over ahead of your brothers. You are to help your brothers until the LORD gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving them.”

These tribes complied with Joshua’s instructions and the nation went forward together into the Promised Land. Victories are fully shared where struggles are fully shared. This principle can apply not just to nations, but common challenges facing sports teams, family units, businesses, and churches. Unity and celebration is the outcome of victory where there is evidence of full team support in the struggle.

Teamwork and a spirit of cooperation through the challenges of life is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Returning Evil With Good

July 2nd, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Corinthians 4:12.

Being an apostle of Christ required great courage and love in the early church. Paul the Apostle wrote, “We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly.”

The Apostles of the early church were serious about applying Jesus’ command to ‘love our enemies.’ Another person who lived out this command in a powerful way more recently was Elisabeth Elliot. She died recently at the age of 88. Elisabeth Elliot dedicated part of her life to serving a group of people who lived in a remote area of Ecuador. She reached out in a spirit of peace to the same people who killed her husband, Jim Elliot in 1956. Instead of seeking revenge, she sought their salvation. The Lord worked through Elisabeth Elliot’s extraordinary love and dedication to reach the unreached with the Gospel. According to an article in Christianity Today, the tribe that was considered one of the most violent in the world would see a 90 percent drop in homicides over the next 20 years. This is what can happen when God’s people seek to overcome evil with good.

Returning human hatred with God’s love is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
