Focus On God-Prince of Peace

john : December 14, 2017 6:09 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as our Prince of Peace.

The prophet Isaiah foretold a time when a child would be born and a son would be given to us.

According to Isaiah 9:6, one of the ways we could identify this child is that He would be called “Prince of Peace.”

This description refers to the end of armed conflict between nations and the end of hostility toward God.

War and violence are part of this broken world tainted by sin. But Isaiah was inspired by the Holy Spirit to envision a day to come when all bloodshed will stop through the reign of the Messiah.

Isaiah 2:4 says, “They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”

This will happen in a favorable spiritual climate where the people walk in the light of the Lord.

Knowing Jesus as our Prince of Peace is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Focus On God-Promised One

john : December 7, 2017 5:35 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the Promised One.

According to Acts 13:22, the Apostle Paul spoke of David as a man after God’s own heart. David reigned as king over Israel in one of their best moments in history, when they were established in the land under a king who trusted God.

Then, in the sermon, Paul pointed to a descendant who was even greater than David. “From this man’s descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus, as he promised.”

David was a king, but Jesus was the promised Messiah, the One foretold in the ancient Scriptures. He was the One people were anticipating.

Just as Jesus came to the world as the fulfillment of God’s promise, He will fulfill the promise of forgiveness and eternal life to all who call on His name for salvation.

Knowing Jesus as the Promised One is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Promise of Hope-God’s Guidance

john : December 5, 2017 5:54 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Psalm 48:14.

“For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.”

We can cling to God with the assurance that He will never leave us or forsake us.

When we come to a fork in the road, God is there to guide us with His wisdom.

When we need a friend, He is forever faithful.

When we need strength to overcome temptation, God is there with His grace to help us in our time of need.

We needed the hope of heaven, and God provided the way when He sent Jesus into the world to become an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

God’s guidance to the end is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Promise Of Hope-God’s Song of Joy

john : December 1, 2017 3:30 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Zephaniah 3:17.

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Here we see a picture of God’s people purified in His grace. If there is one thing that can bring comfort to our day, it’s music. It is an art form that can help us experience peace in a turbulent world. And here, God is using music to express His delight in those who belong to Him. He has won victories on their behalf and He has won their heart. There is a great celebration ahead for those who celebrate Jesus.

The enjoyment of Heavenly music is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.
