Relationship Building Principle-Seek the LORD

john : September 23, 2015 4:50 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Isaiah 55:6 and 7.

Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Billy Graham says that no sin is too big or too small for God to forgive. He says all people have to do is repent with open hearts and accept His forgiveness. At Christian today dot com, this is the passage that he quotes to shed light on God’s approach to forgiveness.

Recognizing our need for forgiveness is the starting place to get right with God. We are sinners in need of a God who can rescue us from our sin. As we recognize the purpose of the cross, we come to understand that there is power in the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from our sin. God’s pardon frees us from our guilt and clears the way for us to have a relationship with God. Faith in Jesus Christ opens the door for this relationship to thrive. He is our turning point to experiencing the forgiveness of God.

Forsaking wicked ways and turning to the Lord are vital relationship-building principles to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

See You At The Pole 2015

ann : September 17, 2015 11:33 am : Ann D'Alessandro, Staff Pages


Hard to believe that it’s that time already!  Wednesday, Sept. 23rd is the next “See You At The Pole” event.  This year the theme is “UNITED” with the verse:

They all met together and were constantly UNITED in prayer. —Acts 1:14

WJTL staff members will be reporting from area schools on The Get Up & Go Show.   You can also call The Listener Hotline to report on “See You At The Pole” at your school.  717-397-8090

For the last 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.

Relationship Building Principle-Pursuing The Spiritual Drifter

john : September 16, 2015 5:20 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from James 5:19 and 20.

“My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.”

The Gospel is a message of restoration. We have kept God at an arm’s length by our sinfulness, but God pursues us to save us from our sins and restore us to Him. God’s grace is the remedy for this separation.

Whenever we see someone wander from God, that is our opportunity to reach out to them with God’s love. Sometimes, a person who wanders away feels judged by the church. They might feel the sting of gossip or the weight of condemnation. What they need is grace that extends patience and kindness. Henry Ward Beecher said that “compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.”

Is there a person you can identify who needs the pursuit of grace?

Pursuing the spiritual drifter with God’s grace is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Encounter With Jesus-Appointment of Disciples

john : September 11, 2015 3:48 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines the appointing of His disciples.

In Mark 3:13 and 14, we gain insight into Jesus’ purpose for appointing certain men to be His disciples.

Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him. He appointed twelve-designating them apostles-that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.

There is a process involved in the making of a disciple to become a disciple-maker. An effective leader in the church learns to follow Jesus. This is more than just the initial experience of accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord. This is a moment-by-moment walk with Him, where He leads us with His wisdom, and we say yes to His plan for our lives. The disciples underwent a few years of spiritual training, learning the ways of God’s Kingdom as they got to know Jesus personally. After spending considerable time with Him, and witnessing His resurrection from the dead, they would embark upon the next chapter of their calling, which was to be witnesses of the Gospel and leaders in the early church. They were faithful to the task and were used of God in extraordinary ways to persuade people to follow Jesus.

A daily connection with Christ is the key to being an influence for the Gospel.
