Lesson of Faith-What Jesus Said About Rest

john : August 27, 2013 3:52 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today, WJTL remembers what Jesus said about rest.

Just as our bodies need a bed for sleep, so our souls need Jesus for peace and rest.

His grace is comforting to the weary soul.

Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Sometimes, burnout comes when we focus so much on the work of the Lord that we forget to slow down and be refreshed in God’s love with days of rest and worship. Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath. He designed moments of rest so that we might cultivate life’s most important relationship and NOT become weary in doing good.

What Jesus said about rest is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

From Bumpers to Books

Admin : August 21, 2013 11:34 am : Intern Sarah

Now that the Bumper Sticker Bonanza is winding down for the summer, we interns would like to reflect on our time here at WJTL and the fun we have had.  Of all the things that we do as interns, sticker spotting is definitely a favorite!  Surprising someone with a prize just for supporting their favorite local Christian radio station is a great feeling.  Even more than that, getting to meet the winners as we place the envelope on the windshield or after they have won is so rewarding!

Do not worry though!  Even though the Bonanza is coming to a close, if you find an envelope on your windshield or would like to send a picture in to win, you still can!

The listeners here in the Susquehanna Valley are a strong community for the WJTL ministry and the Bumper Sticker Bonanza has shown that!  With your support through word of mouth, bumper stickers and other displays of WJTL pride as well as your faithful donations, it is you, the listeners, that make us what we are.  Without you, none of this would be possible!

As we interns go back to school we will remember our time here with great fondness.  We have learned a lot, not only from those that work here, but also from those we met spotting stickers and doing live remotes.  As for me, I have been truly blessed to personally witness all of the excitement for WJTL and the Bumper Sticker Bonanza.

It has been a busy summer full of hard work and sending out prizes.  But my prize was getting to meet all kinds of people, getting great experience, and being here to answer the emails as you send it in to win!
