The Non-Stop Worship Block

Nik : April 26, 2016 12:23 am : Nik, Staff Pages, Uncategorized

NIK – I invite you to join me, Nik at Night M-TH at 10:37, for The NON-STOP WORSHIP BLOCK. It’s an opportunity, weeknights Monday through Thursday, to reset your day.

I am blessed to know lyrics have been poured over by the God pursuing men and women we play here at WJTL so just the right message has the opportunity to soak into our soul.

You’ll hear the Word of God, and a theme supporting surrender–not only of the day, but also a surrender of our hurts and hang-ups over to our Savior!   I invite you to bring your heart to the table and let your mind rest as we settle into some prayers in melody– inspired by and offered back to our God, Most High!

Each night features a three song set where you’ll find a progression: a starting point of our surrender which grows lyrically to a point of praise and thankfulness. We conclude each Worship block with an encouraging word from:

http://billygraham.org/grow-your-faith/

I encourage you to go to that site at any time for assistance in growing your faith.  God longs that we desire to grow in our faith and in His provision, His healing, His Mercy, and His Blessing!

The Monday block featured Mac Powell “By His Wounds” f/ Steven Curtis Chapman and Mark Hall, Matt Maher “Abide With Me” and New Life Worship “Bless The Lord.”  And Billy Graham talked about the disciples, although young, willing of heart to do God’s will.  Our focus was from Micah 6:8.

Pictured on WJTL’s facebook page Non-Stop Worship Block: Mac Powell with Steven Curtis Chapman (recently together on the SCC 3D Tour), Matt Maher w/ Nik at the recent WJTL concert in York, New Life Worship, and Billy Graham].

Thanks for joining me to hear the Non-Stop Worship Block M-Th at 10:37 PM.

Reason To Believe-Passover

john : April 25, 2016 8:13 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

This Jewish feast continues to be observed year after year to this very day celebrating deliverance from slavery. Moses was sent by God as a messenger to tell Egypt’s powerful leader Pharoah, “Let my people go.” Pharoah resisted Moses’ message time after time, despite many plagues on his land.

The final plague was what led to Pharoah’s change of mind, and Israel’s deliverance from slavery. The Israelites were told to sacrifice the Passover lamb without defect and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. The firstborn of the family in that house would be protected when the LORD came to strike down all the firstborn in Egypt.

The LORD gave the Israelites instructions to observe Passover as a lasting ordinance.

Followers of Jesus see Jesus as the fulfillment of Passover. He was unblemished. His blood is precious, and qualifies as an atonement for our sins, to deliver us from slavery to sin, and from spiritual death. First Corinthians 5:7 says “Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.”

Passover is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Season Of Spring

john : April 20, 2016 4:05 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

Spring brings warmer temperatures, melting snow, blooming flowers, and a greener landscape. The Song of Solomon describes the spring season like this: “See! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.”

Have you noticed the birds chirping with songs of delight?

Spring is a season of new life and so much growth. These dimensions of spring become realities for the person who trusts in the Lord.

Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here.”

Spring reminds us of the new life found in Jesus Christ and the nourishing effect of His grace on our soul.

The season of spring is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Sunrise

john : April 19, 2016 5:06 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

We do not wonder if the sun will rise in the morning or ponder which hour it will appear over the eastern horizon. We might wonder if we will arise on time, but we don’t question the timing of the sunrise.

God’s faithfulness is compared to a daily sunrise. Yes, we might have questions about our own faithfulness at times, but God’s faithfulness is a quality that we can depend on. As we look to God and come under His influence, He will enable us to become more faithful.

Lamentations 3:22 gives us this reason not just to believe in God, but to also have hope in Him. “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “

Just like the sunrise, the LORD is faithful. He sent Jesus to the world at just the right time when we needed a Savior. And when the time is right, Jesus will appear again to gather His followers into His heavenly kingdom.

The faithful appearance of the sunrise is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

The Impact of Rado: Far East Broadcasting Company

stacey : April 19, 2016 1:27 am : News, Stacey Gagne

Has radio impacted your life?  It has significantly impacted mine, and that is why I am thrilled that WJTL is partnering with the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) for the Give-A-Radio Project.

FEBC has the motto “Christ to the World By Radio” and is reaching into 40 countries with 770 hours of programming in 100 languages each day broadcasting the life-changing Word of God.  They reach into areas where it’s difficult for missionaries to go.

Our goal is to provide 400 radios, which will help FEBC go to the hardest-to-reach places.  $30 provides one radio, and every radio you give has the potential to reach 25 people with the Gospel.  Right now, a generous donor is even matching every donation so if we reach our goal that would be 800 radios provided!

I invite you to join our Give-A-Radio Project with Far East Broadcasting Company.   To join our Give-A-Radio Project call 877-532-2998 or give online at GiveARadio.org

Q and A-How can I recognize when God speaks to me?

john : April 18, 2016 4:02 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “How can I recognize when God is speaking to me?”

Exodus 33:11 records that the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

Does God speak audibly to His servants today? While this form of communication is possible, this is not the most common way that God speaks to His followers today. We have something that the Old Testament prophets and servants did not have. We have access to the inspired word of God in the Bible. That is an important resource where we can turn to hear from God.

God does also guide us through the opportunities of our circumstances. He will sometimes place burdens on our heart so that we are motivated to take a stand for the Lord and against injustice. God may speak to us through the counsel of a friend. God has given people dreams and visions to bring them to faith in Christ or to start ministries that touch people’s lives. What a pastor says on a Sunday morning might be a timely word for us.

If we hear a message that directly contradicts what God reveals in the Bible, we can be confident that the message is not from God. Psalm 25:14 says, “The Lord’s loyal followers receive his guidance.”

Knowing Jesus, learning to trust Him, and growing in our understanding of the Bible are important pursuits for being able to recognize the voice of God in the Year of Exploration.
