Moment Of Celebration-Worship

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on worship from the heart

In Psalm 69:30, David, a man after God’s own heart, said, “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.”

It was common for animal sacrifices to be used under Old Testament law to reveal our need for forgiveness and cleansing from sin. In reality, they were not the real cleansing agent, but they did foreshadow the complete cleansing from sin that we can experience through faith in Jesus Christ, who was the perfect sacrifice to take away our sins.

David was saying that sincere worship from a thankful heart would mean more to God than the offering of an ox or a bull on the altar.

Hebrews 10:22 invites us to draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. God has given us music as an instrument to lift up the name of Jesus with words that overflow from our heart.

Worshipping God with a sincere heart is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Lesson of Faith-There Is A Cure For Heart Disease

October 17th, 2013 No comments

JOHN SHIRK-One of the foundational teachings of the Christian faith is the moral depravity of humanity. Apart from Christ’s influence, we are lost in sinful and selfish ways. Sin is at the heart of our problem.

Jeremiah 17:9 says “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”

The heart is so deceptive that it is possible for us to deceive ourselves into thinking we are in a better condition than we really are.

The good news about Jesus is that He is our remedy of hope. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. We can be set free from guilt and experience forgiveness through the sacrifice of Jesus for us on the cross. What is incurable for man is possible with God.

Jesus says in Luke 5:31, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”  For the sickness of our sin, there is a cure, and his name is Jesus.

The heart of our problem and our remedy of hope is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

Good morning!  Today’s 4-hour worship program includes a “Heart” theme for the 6:00 hour and a “Water” theme for the 8:00 hour.  Plus, worship songs from Michael W. Smith, as we look forward to his live worship night (also featuring Dan & Lauren Smith) tonight at Grace Fellowship Church in York!  Doors open at 6:00, the concert it at 7:00.  Tickets will be available at the door tonight.  (Concert details here.)

Today I’m also sharing Psalm 42:11 in hopes of encouraging your heart.  Take a look at the Message translation of this verse:

“Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
    Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
    soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
    He’s my God.”

I’d love to hear from you if there are song questions you have or anything else for that matter!  I also email the playlist out weekly.  If you’d like to be included, just let me know.  You may also have favorite worship songs or leaders that I’ve yet to play on the program.  Drop me a line. :D
