JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the height of God’s love.
Psalm 103, verse 11 says, “As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.”
High towers are like magnets to our eyes. If we approach a major city, those are the structures that tend to capture our attention first.
But no tower extends into the heavens like the love of God, which reflects the distance that Jesus traveled to demonstrate God’s love at the cross.
Proverbs 18:10 tells us that the name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
God’s love stands tall as a place of refuge for our soul.
The height of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the depth of God’s love.
Dwight Moody once said that “God has cast our confessed sins into the depths of the sea, and He’s even put a “No Fishing” sign over the spot.”
The depth of God’s love draws our attention to His mercy and forgiveness.
Micah 7:18 says, “Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever, but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”
When we come into the light through confession and repentance, God casts our sins out of His sight where they are remembered no more.
The depth of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
It’s summer time! Do you know what that means? We are spotting bumper stickers! This summer, you can win some great prizes by just placing a WJTL Bumper sticker or window cling on your car! There are two ways you can win this summer.
One way is by being spotted in our listening area. If you don’t have a bumper sticker, email us at email@example.com with your name and address, and I will personally mail you one! Another way you can win is sending me a picture of your vehicle to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address.
This summer we are giving away some great prize packs. The prize pack includes, music, stickers, pencils, a travel mug, pens, and a bag for all your car and shopping needs.
Can’t wait to get out spotting for your cars with our WJTL bumper stickers. Stay tuned for more ways to win over the summer at Creation, our live remotes, and more! Here’s to a start of a great summer of spotting!
JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the width of God’s love.
This dimension of God’s love highlights the distance He puts between sin and the person who lives in holy reverence for His name.
Psalm 103, verse 12 says, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.”
East is as far away as you can get from the west. They are in the opposite direction. As our sins are pulled away from us, they lose their influence over us, and our guilt is removed.
Jesus is the key to forgiveness. He is the One who spread out His arms at the cross and submitted to the Father’s will for the redemption of humanity. As we turn to Him for forgiveness, so our relationship with God is restored. Our spirit is refreshed. Our hope is renewed.
The width of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
A special Happy Father’s Day to all you dads! I hope you feel celebrated and appreciated today!

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What are some commendable qualities of fatherhood?”
With Father’s Day approaching on Sunday, we turn our attention to the qualities of a dad that are exceptional for training a child in the way they should go.
A father who is a good example is a motivator for their children. In First Thessalonians 2:11, the Apostle Paul told the church that he dealt with them as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging them to live lives worthy of God.
A father who is a good example practices what they teach. We see that in Deuteronomy 6, verse 6: “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home, and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up.” This verse encourages dads to look for teachable moments throughout the day.
A father who is a good example is also patient in the training process. They are not provoking children to anger with unrealistic expectations. Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” These are some ways that a father can be a good and godly example for their children in the Year of Exploration.
