Relationship Building Principle-Be Still

john : June 11, 2015 5:22 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Psalm 46:10.

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 46 is about looking to God in faith through circumstances that would normally melt hearts with fear.

There are references to earthquakes and tsunamis found here. Nations are in uproar. Kingdoms fall. Desolations are found on the earth.

The world suffers the consequences from humanity’s sin problem, and those consequences include disasters and armed conflict between nations. In the midst of such upheaval, God invites us to find hope and strength in the everlasting arms of God’s grace. That is where we find security for our soul. That is where we find peace in the eye of the storm. The world is not spinning out of His control. God is on the throne, and this will be clearly evident to everyone in the course of time.

Isaiah 30:15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”

Depending on God in times of trouble is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Get to know Intern Katlyn!

Katlyn Jumper : June 11, 2015 10:28 am : Intern Katlyn

INTERN KATLYN – Hello WTJL Listeners! My name is Katlyn Jumper, most of you know me as Intern Katlyn. Before coming to WJTL, I spend the last semester learning about music streaming on the internet. While looking for internships, I came across WJTL and thought, why not experience, learn and intern where music streaming all started!

This coming fall, I will be entering my senior year at Lebanon Valley College where I am studying Music Business. I will be serving as the President of the VALE Music Industry Conference where I will lead a one credit class once a week. The conference is a day-long event giving attendees a chance to see panels talking about different parts of the music industry. After my time at Lebanon Valley, I plan to work in Radio Broadcasting with the hope of working at an internet streaming company in the future.

I grew up near Scranton, PA and I am the oldest of three with a younger brother and sister. My Brother, Douglas, is a junior in high school and my sister, Lauren, is a freshman in high school. My mother works at Golden Technologies, and my father is a construction worker for Pioneer Construction and serves in Navy Reserves.

While I am not working hard at WJTL, I am at home relaxing with the Dempsey family in Elizabethtown, where I am residing for the summer. During my free time, I enjoy spending time shopping, crocheting, watching Netflix, playing guitar and writing songs! I also enjoy taking trips and visiting new place with my boyfriend Josh while he isn’t busy working his internship at Berks Country Public Television.

My time as an intern at WJTL has been as blast! I have done so many jobs including, recording promos, assisting with live remotes, doing the weather Tuesdays on morning show, and helping out around the office. I have loved my time here and have learned so much about radio broadcasting while having a very eventful experience. I am looking forward to the rest of the summer with all of the memories, lessons and fun times! I hope to hear from you or see you at our future WJTL events!

Relationship Building Principle-Love of God

john : June 8, 2015 5:12 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Acts 10:34 and 35.

Peter said, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.”

Peter made this statement at the house of Cornelius, who was a military commander in the Roman army. Cornelius was a Gentile, and Peter was a Jew. Peter had the opportunity to share the Gospel with Cornelius and his household. At the same time, Peter was learning that this Gospel was not confined to national boundaries, but would be good news to all who embraced the testimony of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

This truth could be instrumental in stopping racism today. The starting place for mending strained relations of any kind is opening our heart to the love of God.

Embracing God’s love for people of every race and nationality is a vital-relationship building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Revival Of Family

john : June 4, 2015 3:04 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Malachi 4:5 and 6.

“See I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”

Elijah was used of God in a mighty way to stir revival among the Israelites. At Mount Carmel, he challenged the people, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

There is often a connection between moral decay in society and the breakdown of the family. Similarly, where revival happens in society, the family unit is strengthened. Whenever we take a stand for the Lord or bring family members to a point of reconciliation, our actions resemble the ministry of Elijah.

Standing for God and family are vital relationship-building principles to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Encounter With Jesus-Great Commission

john : June 3, 2015 5:29 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

It happens in Matthew 28, just before He ascended to heaven. He told the disciples: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always to the very end of the age.”

Jesus was commissioning His followers into a mission of disciple-making that would leave an impact on the world for many generations to follow. These men were not the religious scholars of their day, but they did spend time with Jesus, and that made all the difference in their bold proclamation of the Gospel. Acts 4:13 says that when the religious leaders saw the courage of two of Jesus’ disciples, (Peter and John), and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

We do not have to be scholars to be effective witnesses of the Gospel, but we do need a relationship with Jesus. We need His help and we need His love, because being a disciple-maker is a God-sized mission.

A daily connection with Christ gives us the courage to speak for Him.
