Our Guide Through Life’s Maze

kristi : September 26, 2016 10:18 am : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

cornmaze

Fall has just begun, and it feels like the season in full swing already.  So many of us have been itching to get to cooler weather and its cornucopia of harvest-themed activities.  High on the list for families: corn mazes!  There are lots of options all over the listening area.  Click here for a list. Yesterday, my family and I went to Newport to visit Butcher’s Family Fun Farm.  I, personally, was happy to sit in the corn box with my son, Josiah, instead of panicking and guessing the turns through endless rows of corn stalks.

One of my biggest weaknesses is directions.  My internal compass seems to have been faulty since day one.  Needless to say, I’m not the person you want to follow into a corn maze!  If I go in, it’s gotta be with someone who I am confident can get us back out.  Life can be that way.  Some of us seem to navigate it more easily and effortlessly…but we all have a trustworthy guide.  No matter how deeply lost in “life’s corn maze” you feel, listen for God’s loving voice to help you find your way.

Isaiah 30 21

Reason To Believe-Tombs Of The Prophets

john : September 19, 2016 5:27 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

All throughout Israel, and the Middle East, there are graves of various prophets and patriarchs.

The traditional site of King David’s tomb is located on Mount Zion. First Kings 2:10 records that David rested with his fathers and was buried in the City of David.

The grave site of Moses is somewhere in Jordan, although the exact location is unknown. This is consistent with the Biblical account which says in Deuteronomy 34:6 that God buried him in Moab, but to this day no one knows where his grave is.

Joseph’s tomb is a familiar site in Nablus. As he was about to die, he gave instructions for his bones to be carried from Egypt when God came to the aid of Israel to guide them to the Promised Land.

In Matthew 23, Jesus acknowledged that the Pharisees built tombs for the prophets and decorated the graves of the righteous.

The tombs of the prophets indicate that these people really did live on the earth, and they were part of God’s great story of redemption that led to the time of Christ.

The tombs of the prophets are reasons to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-What is the Priestly Blessing?

john : September 15, 2016 4:38 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What is the priestly blessing?”

In Numbers 6:24, The LORD instructed Moses how to direct Aaron and his sons to bless the Israelites:

“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you: The LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

This is a benediction sometimes given at the end of church services today. This blessing reflects God’s heart for us to know His peace and grace, which satisfies our soul and makes our joy complete.

This blessing is ultimately realized through a relationship with Jesus Christ, who is the way for us to experience God’s favor. Grace and peace prevail in the hearts of those who turn away from sin and turn to Christ for forgiveness and direction in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-God’s Perfect Timing

john : September 15, 2016 4:33 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

Second Peter 3:9 tells us that the Lord is not slow in keeping his promise. His promises may be fulfilled at a slower pace than we would prefer, but that does not mean that God is running behind schedule. It might mean that we are trying to run ahead of Him. Going at God’s timing sometimes requires waiting on the Lord.

An example of God’s perfect timing can be found in John chapter 4, when a royal official asked Jesus to heal his son before he died. Jesus replied, “You may go. Your son will live.” The man took Jesus at his word and departed. While he was a long way off, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. When the royal official inquired as to the time when his son got better, they told him that the fever left him at the seventh hour. Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus said to him, “your son will live.” So, he and all his household believed.

According to Romans 5:6, it was at just the right time when Christ died for the ungodly.

God’s perfect timing to fulfill His perfect will is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
