Q and A-Debt

john : March 1, 2016 5:46 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What does the Bible say about going into debt?”

Romans 13:8 gives us this instruction: “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.”

While God’s Word does not forbid going into debt, it stresses the responsibility to pay back what we owe. So, we should not go into debt without a plan to get out of debt.

One debt that will always remain outstanding is the debt to love one another because there is always more to give.

Another debt that is impossible for us to pay back in full is the sinful actions that we have committed, whether in word, thought, or deed. But where we have fallen short, God has provided a payment plan for us through the blood of Jesus, which was shed on the cross. I Peter 1:18 tells us that we are redeemed, not by the payment of silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ.

Through faith in Jesus, we are set free from the debt of sin and receive the credit of righteousness in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-Purpose

john : February 29, 2016 6:06 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the purpose we have in God’s plan.

Psalm 138:8 says that “the LORD will fulfill his purpose for me.”

Not everyone who loves God may have the exact same mission field or the same ministry in the local church, but we do have the same purpose. That purpose is to know God and to glorify God, so that the name of Jesus will be famous throughout the earth.

Colossians 1:16 says that we were “made by Him and for Him.” Since God has given us breath, He has a plan for our lives. Therefore, we have meaningful purpose.

What He begins in us, He is able to complete. We are motivated by the love of God to wake up each new day and commit our lives to His plan. A good prayer to say to God each morning is “Lord, have your way in me today. Guide me in Your footsteps. Give me a willing heart to follow Your clear directive, and give me a discerning heart when I am not sure about where you are directing me. Amen.”

Our purpose in Christ is a reason to believe in God’s Good News.

Reason To Believe-Miracles Of Jesus

john : February 18, 2016 6:17 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

During His earthly ministry, Jesus performed various types of miracles that set captives free, healed the sick, raised the dead, and fed the hungry. He opened the eyes of the blind, and opened the ears of the deaf, and opened the mouths of those unable to speak.

If we read the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, we will see at least 37 miracles of Jesus. John 20:31 says, “Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

Indeed, there are many more miracles. Every soul converted to Christ becomes a living miracle of a life touched by God’s grace.

The miracles of Jesus are reasons to believe in God’s good news.
