Reason To Believe-God’s Provision for a Godly Life

john : October 10, 2016 5:40 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the provision of God to live a godly life.

Second Peter 1:3 says that “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him, who called us by his own glory and goodness.”

Life is a spiritual battlefield. There are sinister forces that work against our soul, seeking to destroy us and separate us from God’s love. But God has resources too, to help us overcome those forces that wage war against our soul. Three of those resources are the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and the Church.

The Holy Spirit fills us with love and hope. He reminds us of Jesus’ words, and guides us in the truth.

The Bible is the word of God, encouraging us with the message of grace and making known His will for our lives.

The church gives us a support structure in the Christian life and a place of belonging in His family of believers.

God’s provision for us to live a godly life is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Ways to Respond to Needs in Haiti

stacey : October 5, 2016 1:06 pm : News, Stacey Gagne

Areas of Haiti, especially in the Southwest peninsula, were severely devastated by Hurricane Matthew.  Please prayerfully investigate what is being done by various ministries and consider how you can help.

Haiti Bible Mission:  Located in Jeremie Haiti, which was an area devastated due to the hurricane

Life Connection Mission : During this hurricane, Montrouis, Haiti is experiencing damages to property as a result of heavy winds and flooding.

Olive Tree Projects/Maison de Naissance:   Maision de Naissance, a birthing care center in Les Cayes has become an emergency shelter for several of their neighbours and expect they will have to continue housing them for a couple weeks. Maison de Naissance also has some structural damage that will eventually need to be repaired.  They are in a need of a wide spectrum of items from clothing, to food, to medications, to equipment like shovels.  Money that comes in to Olive Tree Projects for “Matthew Relief” will be used to purchase as many things on their needs list as we can, and sent via private plan from Port au Prince. For the next week they will collect funds to provide them with supplies and future financial support to Maison de Naissance can be given directly to www.globalbirthinghomefoundation.org

World Vision

Cross International

Food for the Poor 

Compassion International

Samaritan’s Purse

Mennonite Central Committee

Bethany Christian Services

* If you have a suggestion for another ministry that you know is doing hurricane relief work in country, please email contact@wjtl.com.

Found in Translation

kristi : October 3, 2016 3:52 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

I love having a Bible app on my phone.  I like the access to a variety of devotional plans and checking in to see the Verse Of The Day.  The other morning, I opened the app and saw some brand new phrases that I never read before:

“For God is sheer beauty,

all-generous in love,

loyal always and ever.”

WOW!  I though, “I’ve grown up in the church and never heard this one before!”  What amazing phrasing!  I couldn’t believe that this verse wasn’t more popular.  I glanced at the reference and realized that it was a very familiar passage: Psalm 100:5.  In fact, this is a verse that many worship songs are rooted in–songs we play regularly on WJTL.  We usually know the verse in this wording:

“For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;

His faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Then it hit me: I left my app displaying verses in the Message Translation, when I usually read in NIV.  Just viewing the passage in a different wording can make the Bible come alive all over again.  If you need a fresh word from God, I encourage you to look up some of your favorite verses in a translation you don’t usually use.  After all, Hebrews 4:12 says “the word of God is alive and active.”  (Or, in the Message Translation: “God means what He says.  What He says goes.“)
