Encounter With Jesus-If God Is For Us….

john : October 20, 2015 3:56 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His abundant grace.

Romans 8:31 asks the question, “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

Sometimes, people wonder where God is, or why He seems so distant. The truth is that God has spoken of His love to us when He sent Jesus to us. The death of Jesus on the cross was the offer of God’s grace to humanity, saying that our sins can be forgiven, and our relationship can be restored to God through faith in Jesus’ name.

In reality, we have run away from God with every sin that we ever committed. Woven throughout the Scriptures is the picture of God pursuing His people. He sought us out for relationship. He seeks to bless us, not to harm us. He is for us, not against us. How will we respond to His abundant grace? Jesus invites us to follow Him.

In saying yes to that invitation, we have the opportunity to enjoy His friendship and Heavenly treasures forever.

A daily connection with Christ gives us security in the arms of God’s grace.

Meet Katlyn Jumper

Katlyn Jumper : October 18, 2015 2:49 pm : Katlyn Jumper, Staff Pages

KATLYN JUMPER – Hello Listeners! My name is Katlyn Jumper and I am a new DJ here at WJTL! You might have seen me or heard me this summer. That is because I am formally  known as Intern Katlyn. Many of you will hear me or have heard me on Sunday’s from 12-6 sharing music, stories and much more. You can also catch me at a few of the WJTL events. I just wanted to take the time for you to get to know me more!

I am senior Music Business major at Lebanon Valley College. Starting last semester, I had a great interest in music streaming and wanted to get my foot in the door through radio broadcasting. Who would have thought that I would be here at WJTL as one of your DJs! As well as a radio DJ, I am a very active member of our music department at Lebanon Valley College. I serve as the 2015 VALE Conference President and will be helping host the 11th annual VALE Conference and is also the 1st VALE Media Industries Conference. I am also an active participant in the Pride of the Valley Marching Band, Jazz Band, Low Brass Ensemble, the woman’s professional music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota.

While I am not busy with school, I enjoy many other activities including playing guitar, writing music, reading, and traveling to new and old places! I like to travel a lot because I am not originally from Lancaster Country. I grew up near the Wilkes Barre/Scranton area in Luzerne Country. I am the oldest of three siblings. I have a younger brother, Douglas, who is a senior in high school and a younger sister, Lauren, who is a sophomore in high school. When I get the change I love to visit them as well as my wonderful parents and grandparents. I also enjoy visiting my boyfriend Josh, who is a recent graduate of Lebanon Valley College. We enjoy traveling and taking new adventures together.

I have enjoyed my time at WJTL so much that I am looking forward to my future with them. My hope from my journey with WJTL is to grow more in my career, my spirit and my personality. I have so much to look forward too and am ready to continue growing in my broadcasting career! Don’t forget to tune in to hear me on Sunday’s from 12-6. Looking forward to meeting you at our next WJTL event!

Relationship Building Principle-Upholding Cause Of The Poor

john : October 15, 2015 5:05 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Jeremiah 22:15.

Josiah was the last righteous king in the land of Judah before their captivity in Babylon. The LORD said this about King Josiah:

“He did what was right and just, so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?” declares the LORD.

His example was very different from his successor whose heart was set on dishonest gain, the shedding of innocent blood, oppression, and extortion.

Whatever platform God gives us, that is an opportunity to use our influence for good or evil. Having a relationship with God will move us to use that influence for good. In Josiah’s case, he defended the cause of the poor and needy, whereas his successor exploited them.

Helping those in poverty was a cause that united the early church, and it can be an effort that unites the church today.

Upholding the cause of the poor is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Repentance

john : October 14, 2015 5:20 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Jonah 3:8 through 10.

After Jonah preached to the huge city of Nineveh, the people responded with prayer and repentance.

The king and his nobles said, “Let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened.”

Whenever we give up sinful practices and turn toward God, we make a decision for life. In the case of Nineveh, one of the specific sins that they committed to give up was violence. Along with violence in a society, there is the presence of hatred for others, selfish ambition, envy, inconsideration for people and general disrespect for human life. Turning to God closes the door on these destructive attitudes and opens the door for His love to take root in our heart. This leads to a change of attitude that seeks to do good for our neighbors. Nineveh was a civilization that made a choice for life in the nick of time.

Prayer and Repentance are vital relationship-building principles to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
