Relationship Building Principle-Seek Good Not Evil

john : August 10, 2015 5:11 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Amos 5:14.

“Seek good, not evil that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.”

This was a message for a nation that was drifting from God. Israel was under the impression that they were under God’s protection even though the nation was not fully dedicated to walking in His ways. They were in more danger than they realized, and further from God than what they imagined.

The Book of Amos was pointing out that if they wanted their claim to be reality, they needed to love what is good and to hate what is evil. This is where the Lord’s heart is. He loves what is good and hates what is evil. God’s influence on our lives brings us into agreement with His perspective. When we humbly accept God’s Word and apply it to our lives, we can step forward with full confidence that we are on God’s side, and He is with us.

Seeking good, not evil is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Nik Notes a “sight” on Big Daddy Weave’s concert night

Nik : August 7, 2015 10:27 pm : Nik

Horizonline

The Thursday horizon line at sunset appeared to be like a wide fire while Big Daddy Weave led us in worship under the white Junction Center tent.  Numbers 9:15 [ The Cloud Covering the Tabernacle ] “On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony. And at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning.” ESV

Internship Chapter Ending. New Chapter Beginning!

Katlyn Jumper : August 7, 2015 11:00 am : Intern Katlyn, Staff Pages

INTERN KATLYN – After twelve long and amazing weeks, I have officially completed my internship with WJTL. This experience has been one of the most memorable and rewarding in my college career. I have learned many great lessons and skills that I know will help me as I endeavor to finish out my last year at college and for my “Future in Radio” (Nudge Nudge. Read On! Nudge Nudge).

During my time at WJTL, I have had many different opportunities in and out of the office. As a good chunk of my internship, I was in charge of this summer’s Bumper Sticker Contest. It has taught me responsibility and leadership of how to handle a given task for a long period of time. The greatest part about running the contest was receiving letters from winners who were encouraged by our contest. After seeing all of those, I knew I had done a great job!

One of thing I had the most fun with was working live remote events. These events included the Seretoma Chicken BBQ, Lancaster Barnstormers Game, Kids Cookie Break events, and my favorite, Creation Festival 2015. I enjoy getting to meet listeners and hearing how WJTL blesses them. It’s always nice to talk to listeners in person. It is so nice to hear that they listen to me on the morning show as well!

Speaking of the morning show, one of the most memorable parts of my internship was being on the Get Up and Go show with Fred and Lisa on Tuesday mornings. They have been a joy to be around and I have learned so much from them. I loved being on the air and can see myself pursuing this as a “Future Job” (Nudge Nudge).

Though my journey as an intern is complete, my journey with WJTL is just beginning!! Starting this month, I will be joining the WJTL team as an on-air DJ! I will be your DJ Sunday afternoon’s from 12-4. I am super excited to be a part of the team and continuing to work with WJTL in the future!

As well as being a new WJTL DJ, I will be finishing my senior year at Lebanon Valley College as Music Business major. I have many great groups that I am going to be a part of as well. I will be this year’s Baritone Section Leader for the Pride of the Valley marching band, taking many different classes, participating in the jazz band for the first time in four years, and my favorite, being the President of the Vale Music Industry Conference!

I am so thrilled to be starting my senior year of college and joining this amazing team at WJTL. To hear more about my time here at WJTL, check out my new blog under my name, Katlyn Jumper, where I will be telling you more about what I will be doing here at WJTL. Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday’s from 12-4! Hope to hear from you and maybe see you at our future WJTL events!

Encounter With Jesus-The Great Banquet

john : August 6, 2015 5:29 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines one of the parables He taught from Luke 14.

“A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ But they all alike began to make excuses. One said, “I just bought a field, another I just bought oxen, another, I just got married.”

The invitations went out, but the invited guests had other priorities. Parables are stories about the kingdom of God. Jesus is talking about the great banquet that God is preparing for His people in heaven. Yet, when the value of this invitation is not fully appreciated, we tend to make excuses for not accepting this invitation. We have business to run. We have plans to make. We have places to go, and people to see.

But if we stop and consider the treasure of His grace, and how His love brings refreshment to our soul, and restoration with God, the incentive for saying “Yes” outweighs our excuses for saying “no.”

God’s grace continues to reach out with the simple invitation to come to Jesus, and to trust Him as Savior and Lord. He desires for His house to be full. There is room for you.

A daily connection with Christ leads to a celebration of His love and the eternal life that He gives.
