Reason To Believe-Jerusalem

john : April 7, 2016 7:59 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

In the headlines, it is the subject of controversy today. In the Bible, it is described as the holy city. Jerusalem means “City of Peace.”

According to Ezekiel 5:5, the LORD says, “This is Jerusalem, which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her.”

Jerusalem is the city where the temple stood as a place of worship.

Jerusalem is the city where Jesus entered to present Himself as a gentle king, riding on a donkey.

Jerusalem is the city where Jesus was tried and condemned to death. He would die just outside the holy city as a sacrifice for our sins.

Jerusalem is the place where the Holy Spirit came in power on the early church.

Jerusalem was the launching point for the Gospel to spread around the world.

And according to Jeremiah 3:17, Jerusalem will be called “The Throne of the LORD.”

The significant events surrounding the city of Jerusalem reveals that God’s redemptive plan is central to our hope for lasting peace and is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Heavens And Earth

john : April 6, 2016 4:39 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s reason to believe is the existence of the heavens and the earth.

Jeremiah 32:17 records this prayer from the prophet: “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”

The evidence of nature and the universe says something to us about the nature of a universal God. His great power brought the things we see around us into existence.

The book of Hebrews describes the universe being formed at God’s command. By faith, we understand that this is how the heavens and the earth were created. And as we examine the prayer of Jeremiah, we see that if God is able to make this world in alignment to the sun in such a way that human life is sustainable, nothing is too hard for Him.

And if He is able to create more than 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone, the Milky Way, then nothing is too hard for Him.

And if He is able to create human beings to reflect His glory, then nothing is too hard for Him. He can move us to stand in awe of the might and majesty of His outstretched arm to create what He has commanded.

The existence of the heavens and the earth are reasons to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Lasting Legacy

john : April 5, 2016 5:52 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the lasting legacy of those who were faithful to God.

We have the record of the heroes of faith in the Old Testament in Hebrews, chapter 11 in the form of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and many more. Their examples all have something to say to us about living out a faith that gets God’s attention. Their witness for God continues to speak today.

Then there are other believers, not mentioned in the Bible, but who have made their mark on history-St. Patrick, St. Augustine, Dwight Moody, C.S. Lewis, Mother Teresa, Jim Elliot, and Billy Graham, just to name a few. God raised them to be powerful influences for the Gospel in various ways.

If you follow Jesus, you have a legacy too that could influence many souls, even after you die. Philippians 1:6 says, “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

The lasting legacy of faith among God’s followers is a reason to believe in God’s Good News.

WJTL Studio B at LBC

kristi : April 1, 2016 4:56 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

26069278952_64d77eee83_m

WJTL recently broadcast on brand new microphones in a brand new studio.  In fact, the entire building and everything in it was brand new!  The Charles Frey Academic Center at Lancaster Bible College is now complete.   The ribbon cutting and dedication are in the history books.  The facility is the new home for six of LBC’s seven departments, including faculty offices and state of the art class rooms.  It also has an ice cream parlor, serving Turkey Hill Dairy‘s flavors!  (Charles Frey’s father founded Turkey Hill Dairy, while he and his brother helped the company grow.)

There’s an impressive television studio and radio station, too!  LBC’s Communication Department is expanding to offer students a Radio Broadcasting course starting this Fall.  I’ll be adjunct professor for the course, which will also incorporate special appearances by some of WJTL’s staff.

26161748785_04e988e31c_m

We are eager to share our passion, knowledge and experience with students on their way to enter the media industry. While constructing WJTL Studio B at LBC, our own Chris Strayer (of Stray Lighting & Production Services) made sure the studio had super cool lighting accents while Flagstream Technologies‘ Roy Landis and Don Horst got all the wires and equipment in the right places so that the studio functions!

Reason To Believe-Great Comebacks

john : March 31, 2016 5:40 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is Great Comebacks.

One of the most astonishing comebacks in football happened in the 1993 AFC Wild Card Game. The Buffalo Bills fell behind the Houston Oilers 35 to 3 in the second half. But backup quarterback Frank Reich rallied his team to an unforgettable comeback that left his team victorious at the final whistle-41 to 38.

That was an example of a team that recovered after they were down.

The Gospel is the story of a Savior who revived after He was dead. It is the greatest comeback of all time. This comeback reminds us that we are never in a hopeless place as long as we live with the resurrection power of Jesus. In Revelation 1:18, Jesus says, “I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!”

And First Corinthians 15:57 is a message to followers of Jesus: “Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The greatest comeback of all time is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
