Q and A-Worship

john : November 10, 2016 5:56 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK -Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What does it mean to worship God in spirit and in truth?”

Jesus was engaged in a conversation with a woman at the well. They were talking about worship. She was a Samaritan, and as she learned more about Jesus, she said to Him, “I can see that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

Jesus downplayed the significance of tying meaningful worship with a specific location. Instead, He focused on the matters of the heart. He said in John 4:23, “A time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”

Worship that pleases God is not about the outward expressions of a ceremony or being in a certain territory. Worship is about expressing love for God with sincerity, and acknowledging Him for who He really is. So, as we grow in the grace and knowledge of God, our worship will thrive for the glory of God in the Year of Exploration.

Q and A-The Parable of the Rich Fool

john : November 3, 2016 6:33 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What is the meaning behind the Parable of the Rich Fool?”

Jesus told this parable in Luke 12 to show that life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.

A rich man had a bumper crop year. He thought to himself, “What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops”. Then, he said, “This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, ‘You have plenty of grain laid up for many ears. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”

But God said to him, “You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then, who will get what you have prepared for yourself?” Jesus said, “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves, but is not rich toward God.”

The point of this parable is not to suggest that it is wrong to save money or plan for retirement, but it does highlight the folly of storing up for ourselves treasures on earth without storing up treasures in heaven in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-The Moon

john : November 3, 2016 6:23 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

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

According to NASA, the Moon is approximately 238 thousand miles from planet earth. On a cloudless night, it appears as a light in the sky faithfully.

Psalm 89:37 describes the moon as the faithful witness in the sky. We see the moon because it reflects the light of the sun.

God’s promises are like the moon in the sense that they reflect His goodness and trustworthiness.

Our good deeds carried out in the name of Jesus are also like the moon in the sense that they reflect God’s glory.

Jesus instructs us to let our light shine before others, that they may see our good deeds and glorify our Father in heaven.

In this way, followers of Jesus can be like the moon and reflect Christ’s love and goodness to the world in which we live.

The Moon, as a faithful witness in the sky, is a reflector of light and is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

My Visit to Phil’s Music Room

kristi : October 31, 2016 3:00 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages, Uncategorized

Kristi and Phil

Over the weekend, my family and I took Radio Friend Phil up on a longstanding invitation to visit his music room in his home.  This special space is the product of decades of vinyl collecting and meticulous audio gear curating.  He even has a sofa set up at the exact sweet spot for the listener to clearly hear every detail the recording artist intended.  The results are amazing!  Phil sat us down with a mug of his favorite hot tea and played a variety of records for us: Franz Schubert, Herbie Hancock, Billie Holiday, Credence Clearwater Revival, Pat Metheny and The Beatles.  We fell in love all over again with familiar songs like “Here Comes The Sun” because we heard parts we never heard before…all because of how well Radio Friend Phil presented the music.

It got me thinking about how I present things.  Am I taking great care of the material like Phil cares for his vinyl?  Do I make sure that I set up my words as well as Phil sets up his gear?  And do I make sure that my listener is as comfortable and well-positioned to hear the heart of what I’m saying like Phil does with that comfy sofa and hot tea?

Ephesians 5 talks a lot about living intentionally and graciously as we interact with others.  I love the phrase in verse 15 that say “Be very careful, then, how you live.”  It’s something that comes to my mind a lot.  God has been so very good to us!  I want to honor and love Him by cheerfully choosing to be very careful how I live to bring Him glory. Verse 2 gets to the heart of it, “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling fragrance.”
