Praise & Worship Playlist

kristi : December 27, 2020 6:00 am : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

This week’s lineup has a theme! Songs to remember: God is the author of your story. This is especially encouraging when you’re in the middle, feeling the tension, not sure how He is going to resolve the plot. But we know God completes the good work he began, and that what was intended for evil, He uses for good. This story isn’t over yet! I have songs like “My Testimony” by Elevation Worship, “Author/Perfector” by Rivers & Robots, “I’ll Give Thanks” by Kirby Kaple and some brand new ones: “Beautiful Story” by Jaime Jamgochian and “Catch Me Singing” by Sean Curran. I hope these lyrics connect with your heart.

Here’s the link to the Spotify Highlights version of this playlist!

20/20 Insight-Jesus, Prince of Peace

john : December 23, 2020 4:38 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on the purpose of Jesus to be our Prince of Peace.

One of the reasons that Jesus came to earth 2,000 years ago was to remove our hostility toward God. Adam and Even disobeyed Him in the Garden, and we have been living with the fallout ever since.

Then came the birth of Jesus. God was making a way for us to live at peace with Him. Listen to the chorus of the angels when the birth of Jesus was announced to the shepherds:

“Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” That’s good news of great joy for the world.

Romans 5:1 tells us how we can live in peace with God. “Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The grace of Jesus is able to bring us peace with God, peace with others, and peace within ourselves.

Focusing on Jesus as our Prince of Peace gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.

20/20 Insight-Purpose of Jesus To Enrich Our Lives

john : December 18, 2020 5:16 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on the purpose of Jesus to enrich our lives.

Second Corinthians 8:9 says, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes, he became poor, so that you, through his poverty might become rich.”

Jesus left His place of honor and glory in heaven to become the suffering servant on earth. This was for our benefit, not for the purpose of giving us material riches, but to give us God’s grace. That is the richest place for us to be. That is where we have the favor of God. That is where we have peace with God. That is where we experience the joy of the Lord. That is where we live with the hope of moving forward in God’s plan until we reach His glorious destiny. We gain access to these treasures through faith in Jesus to save us from our sins.

Focusing on the riches of God’s grace gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.

Good News Focus-The Father’s Great Love

john : December 15, 2020 5:41 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Good News Focus is on First John 3:1.

“See that great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

That word “lavish” is a rich word, meaning that God’s love was expressed to us generously and extravagantly. He did not withhold His very best from us, but offered Jesus to be a sacrifice for our sins at the cross. That was the purpose for Jesus’ birth 2,000 years ago. He came as God’s gracious and generous gift to the world.

One of the benefits of knowing God’s love is to be included in His family as a child of God. Speaking of Jesus, John 1:12 says, “To all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

Jesus is our Source of Good News, leading us to a place of being identified as a child of God in the Year of Vision.

Praise & Worship Playlist

kristi : December 13, 2020 6:00 am : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages
This week’s playlist is filled with Christmas songs of worship. You’ll hear some themes in many of the songs, including “Emmanuel, God With Us” in addition to songs of “Gloria” and “Hallelujah” (which I think are especially wonderful to sing in the Christmas season)! The playlist includes new songs from The McClures, Passion Music, Planetshakers, Sovereign Grace Music, Andrew Marcus and more.
Also listen for a very special lineup from local worship leaders starting around 7:45! There are some brand new Christmas songs of worship around the listening area lately. Just a few days ago, an encouraging release came out from Worship Center Music: (click here for a FREE download of “Even Now (Hope Rise)”)! There’s also a brand new song from Caleb & Bethany Kuenzli of Providence Community Church called “Human Form”:
Plus, (the autumn) from Grace Point Church of the Nazarene in Ephrata put out their rendition of “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”!
And, Life Center Worship’s favorite original Christmas song, “Rejoice”.
By the way, if you’re a local worship leader with a song you’ve recorded—or if your church has produced a special worship project, feel free to send it my way. Just email Kristi@WJTL.com
I hope these songs make your heart merry as you overflow in worship to our King!

Good News Focus-Security In God’s Grip of Grace

john : December 11, 2020 4:58 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Good News Focus is on John 10:28 and 29.

Jesus spoke of His followers this way, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”

The grace of God is firm and secure. He will not let go of those who belong to Him. Today, we can live with the confidence that nothing in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Tragedies may shake our world, but they do not have the power to shake us from God’s love. We don’t have to be paralyzed by fear of what the future holds when our hope is in Christ. The people of God are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken. His promises are true and reliable. Jesus will keep His followers close to His heart forever.

Jesus is our Source of Good News, leading us to a place of security in His saving grace in the Year of Vision.

Good News Focus-Humble Service

john : December 9, 2020 6:02 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Good News Focus is on Mark 10:44 and 45.

Jesus said to His disciples, “Whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

James and John were two of Jesus’ disciples who were seeking a place of honor when Jesus’ reigns in His glory. Jesus showed the path to greatness through service and humility.

If we want to know anything about being great in the kingdom of God, we need to look at the example of Jesus. The king of heaven became a servant on earth. He washed His disciples’ feet using a basin and towel. Then, He went to the cross and gave His life as a sacrifice for our sins. He pursued the needs of others at a high cost. That is the expression of love to a great measure.

Jesus is our Source of Good News, leading us to a place of humble service in the Year of Vision.

Good News Focus-Faithful God

john : December 7, 2020 5:48 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Good News Focus is on Deuteronomy 32:4.

Moses said about the LORD, “He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”

That is a remarkable statement about God. He has never made a mistake. He has never done anything that requires an apology. We may not always understand His ways, but we can trust God to be morally perfect and faithful. In Psalm 145:17, we learn that He is also loving toward all he has made. That includes each one of us.

He was not obligated to create us, but He chose to create us because it pleased Him to give us life. And when we sinned against Him, He pursued us again with His love by sending Jesus to the earth to save us from our sins. Now, because of Jesus, we can draw near to Him by faith and live in relationship with Him forever.

Jesus is our Source of Good News, leading us to a place of confidence in His faithfulness and justice in the Year of Vision.
