New Tunes at 9 Roundup with Among the Thirsty

September 11th, 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.)

Ryan Daniel from Among the Thirsty was my guest this week on New Tunes at 9. Ryan took a few minutes to talk about the band’s new project, “Who You Say I Am.” The new radio single, “Completely,” is the finest song the band has recorded to date. It’s a very vulnerable song that features Ryan’s melancholy voice set against an acoustic piano and beautiful strings.

Ryan writes: “I’m feeling so small; standing here weeping. I’m coming clean of the secrets I’m keeping. I’ve caused so much pain to the ones I love most. And I’m falling apart as I carry my heart to your throne.” (Listen to Ryan Daniel on New Tunes at 9 http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/)

Moment Of Celebration-Kingdom Of God

September 10th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK-Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the Kingdom of God.

Jesus said this was to be our primary focus. Earthly kingdoms rise and fall, and material possessions come and go, but the Kingdom of God is coming and will remain forever.

When 9/11 happened in 2001, our sense of security was shaken. 13 years later, the threat remains. We do not know what tomorrow may hold. Jesus never said we would find ultimate security in a strong military force, or in our money, or in the plans we make tomorrow. But we can find security in the strong arms of a loving God.

The kingdom of God is a present reality through followers of Jesus who represent Him. Romans 14:17 says, “the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating or drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

And the kingdom of God is a future reality that will reveal the glory of Jesus to the whole earth at His coming. Hebrews 12:28 says, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so, worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.” Those who seek His Kingdom will find true security for the soul. Jesus will be the central focus of our faith.

Receiving the kingdom of God is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment of Celebration – Salvation Drawing Near

September 9th, 2014 No comments

Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the salvation that is drawing nearer.

When someone comes to faith in Christ, there are changes that occur within us. We become a new creation in Christ. He becomes our source of trust and confidence.  We are blessed with peace in knowing that our sins are forgiven, and are brought into God’s family of believers. These are welcome changes to the new believer.

However, this world is not all there is. The best is yet to come. This anticipation keeps hope alive and purifies our faith as we draw closer to our ultimate destiny with Christ.

Romans 13:11 says, “And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness, and put on the armor of light.”

With each step of faith, we are honoring God’s name and moving toward the goal for which Christ Jesus has called us heavenward.

The salvation of the Lord is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
