Encounter With Jesus-He Came To Save Sinners

john : December 14, 2015 5:23 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His purpose for coming to the world.

According to First Timothy 1:15, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”

The Christmas season is full of special activities, shopping sprees, decorations, and gifts. It can be a busy season that keeps us doing things that may be good, but may also keep us from slowing down to reflect on the greatest gift of all-the reason why we celebrate Christmas.

God’s love for us prompted Him to send Jesus to the world on a rescue mission. Jesus did not come to us because we were good, but because He is good. His blood shed for us at the cross was an acceptable sacrifice for our sins, and as a result, we are declared acceptable to God through faith in Jesus Christ. We cannot enter heaven on our own merit, but it is possible to enter heaven on the merit of Christ and what He has done for us at the cross. That was the purpose of Jesus that adds meaning to Christmas.

A daily connection with Christ is our lifeline to God’s forgiveness and His gift of eternal life.

Encounter With Jesus-Church at Thyatira

john : December 2, 2015 4:10 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK-In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His letter to the church at Thyatira.

In Revelation 2:22, the main message to this church was to turn away from immorality and idolatry, and turn to God. The whole church was not corrupted, but some were by the influence of a woman named Jezebel, who called herself a prophetess.

The church was making some progress. Jesus identifies their deeds, their love, their faith, their service, and their perseverance, and says, “You are now doing more than you did at first.”

But they were too tolerant of the sinful practices that Jezebel promoted. Tolerance is consistent with the Christian faith when it reflects kindness and respect to a person who disagrees with us. But tolerance goes too far if we are putting our stamp of approval on sin. Validating sin leads to the spread of a spiritual cancer throughout the body.

Romans 2:4 talks about the riches of God’s kindness, tolerance, and patience as influences to lead us to repentance.

A daily connection with Christ teaches us to love God, love people and hate sin.

Exciting On Air Changes

phredd : November 30, 2015 5:10 am : Fred McNaughton, Staff Pages

Eddie’s last day  as the daily Afternoon Drive host at WJTL was last Tuesday, November 24. Eddie and his wife, Sarah are starting their own fulltime business and we wish Eddie and Sarah well in their new endeavor. We will miss Eddie’s creativity, sense of humor and his voice being on the air at WJTL.

Eddie’s leaving has created a shuffling of shifts that will begin Monday, November 30, 2015.

After 22 years of being the evening on air host at WJTL, Radio Friend Phil has decided to switch to Afternoon Drive. Phil will now be on the air Monday through Friday 3pm-7pm.  New Tunes at 9 will now be New Tunes at 6pm. Phil will continue doing The Friday Request Show at 5pm.

John Shirk will add an hour to his daytime on air schedule. The Shirk at Work Network will now be Monday thru Friday 10am-3pm.

Another familiar WJTL voice in the evening will now be Nik at Night.  Nichole Curtis Beale will be on the air Monday thru Thursday 7pm-midnight.  Nik will host the Request Show on those evenings from 8 until 10pm.

Katlyn Jumper (former Intern Katlyn) will be on the air Fridays 7pm-10pm and will also be on the radio every other Saturday afternoon from 2-6pm, a time she will alternate with Rick Steimling.
We will also add Some Sort of Rock Show to Friday’s lineup from 10pm to midnight.  SSRS will re-air Sunday evening at it’s current slot as well.

Thank you for your support and encouragement during these changes!
