Q and A-Evangelizing Friends and Family

john : November 17, 2016 5:35 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “How can I evangelize my friends and family without turning them away from the Gospel?”

The Bible calls Christians “ambassadors for Christ.” It is good to remember that we are on a peace mission to proclaim the message of reconciliation through Jesus.

Before talking about God to our unsaved loved ones, we are wise to talk to God about our unsaved loved ones. Pray for them. Let God prepare the way through prayer.

Another thing to remember is treating our loved ones with dignity, not as a project. As we share the reason for our hope, First Peter 3:15 tells us to do this with gentleness and respect.

One of the best things we can do is live out the Gospel with integrity. Jesus tells believers to let our light shine before others that they may see our good deeds and glorify our Father in heaven.

Prayer, respect, hope, and living the Christian life are some effective ways to evangelize loved ones without turning them away from the Gospel in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-The Witness of Moses

john : November 17, 2016 5:23 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK-In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the witness of Moses.

Jesus said to His skeptics in John 5:46, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.”

Where did Moses write about Jesus? The place is Deuteronomy 18:15, where Moses said, “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.” This was not something that Moses came up with by himself. God revealed it to him. In verse 18, Moses said that the LORD told him, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.”

By the words of Moses, we see that the words of Jesus have divine origin. The words of Jesus are worth our full attention and acceptance.

The witness of Moses concerning Jesus is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Fall Foliage

john : November 10, 2016 6:06 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the Fall Foliage.

The many different colors of leaves on the trees reveal God’s creativity and appreciation for beauty. They are too numerous to count.

The Architect behind the leaves is also the Maker of each person on this planet. We have our own unique personality and characteristics.

We are here for a season in the realm of human history. While we remain, we are meant to reflect God’s glory and reveal His beauty on the earth. Beyond this life, those who are faithful to Jesus will be carried away to join the family of God around heaven’s throne.

The writer of Revelation 7:9 wrote, “After this, I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.”

The Fall Foliage reminds us of the kaleidoscope of people who are made to reflect God’s glory, and is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-Worship

john : November 10, 2016 5:56 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK -Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What does it mean to worship God in spirit and in truth?”

Jesus was engaged in a conversation with a woman at the well. They were talking about worship. She was a Samaritan, and as she learned more about Jesus, she said to Him, “I can see that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

Jesus downplayed the significance of tying meaningful worship with a specific location. Instead, He focused on the matters of the heart. He said in John 4:23, “A time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”

Worship that pleases God is not about the outward expressions of a ceremony or being in a certain territory. Worship is about expressing love for God with sincerity, and acknowledging Him for who He really is. So, as we grow in the grace and knowledge of God, our worship will thrive for the glory of God in the Year of Exploration.
