Focus On God-Creation of the Stars

john : February 3, 2017 3:44 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His creation of the stars.

According to Isaiah 40, verse 26, the Holy One invites us to probe and ponder this thought: “Lift your eyes to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”

Astronomers estimate that there are at least 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone. The world population clock estimates close to 7.5 billion people living on the earth right now. So, if God can keep track of all the stars He has made, it stands to reason that He won’t lose track of the people He has made either. The point being made in Isaiah 40 is that God is our Creator. He will not grow weary or tired. No one can fathom His understanding. He holds the universe and the world in His hands. He will not let go of those who are captured in the grip of His grace.

God’s creation of the stars is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Focus On God-Miracle Worker

john : January 27, 2017 3:49 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His power as a miracle worker.

According to Psalm 77:14, God is a miracle-worker. “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”

The Christian faith is built on miracles, such as the Creation of the world, the virgin birth of Jesus, the miracle of His love demonstrated at the cross, and the raising of Jesus from the dead three days later.

There is another miracle worth noting-the miracle of God’s love to draw someone to faith in Jesus and to change a heart. Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!”

God’s power as a miracle worker is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Parenting, Presets and the Junction Center Project

kristi : January 27, 2017 9:38 am : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

The other day, my toddler came running from the family room.  He had a look of panic and worry on his face, so I dropped what I was doing to see what happened.  I took his hand and we went back to the family room, where I immediately heard a noise.  I quickly scanned the possible sources: maybe the interactive dump truck was on the fritz or the racing chicken car was having a meltdown…but it turned out to be the stereo.  Josiah had pushed buttons in just the right sequence to turn it on to FM radio mode and change the channel to static.  It was an easy fix: just push the preset button back to 90.3 and everything felt right again.  What a relief!  It got me thinking about how glad I am that WJTL is there and how I hope that 90.3 will always broadcast encouraging music and programming.  I had a moment of gratitude for how my parents financially supported WJTL over the years.  They also took me to concerts with Michael W. Smith, DC Talk, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, Supertones and more.  They knew that WJTL was having a huge impact on my heart and life and encouraged my connection with it.  They even walked away from buying a house they loved, all because WJTL’s signal didn’t come in.  I’m so glad they saw how much WJTL meant to me.  You may not know them personally, but you may have seen them online!  There’s a picture of my mom and dad that pops up on WJTL.com from time to time.

There they are, Jim & Abby Abildness!  Well…their silhouettes, at least.  This was taken during the grand opening of the Junction Center Tent.  I’m extra nostalgic lately because of the Christian performing arts center that is currently being built at WJTL’s home, The Junction Center.  I imagine all the concerts and speakers and special events where we’ll be reminded of God’s love for us or encouraged to shine for Jesus or even come to Him for the very first time.  I’m planning on taking Josiah to his first concert when Slugs & Bugs comes in May.  It’ll be a fun full-circle moment for me.  So, I hope that you’ll join me and the whole family of WJTL listeners in praying for – and financially supporting –  this next phase of ministry.  It has so much potential to impact our community for Jesus Christ!  Click for details on contributing to the project or to see the lineup of concerts and special events already set to take place in our exciting new facility!  I also encourage you to read the story behind the name of the Robert M. Landis Memorial Hall…another testimony of an amazing parent.

Promise of Hope-Jesus Christ is the same

john : January 26, 2017 4:18 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Hebrews 13:8.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

This is a comforting verse for the follower of Christ, because it means that the name of Jesus is always superior to all other names, the throne of Jesus will never be upended, and the love of Jesus will never run dry. His truth is not bending to the changing values of the culture. His character does not change with the passage of time because there is no need for growth or improvement. Jesus is Lord, and that fact will never change. The sacrifice He made for our sins 2,000 years ago still has the power to forgive sins and transform our lives.

He is the constant source of help for His people. We find evidence of that in the preceding verses. In verse 5, God said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

The constant presence of Jesus is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Focus On God-Promise Keeper

john : January 26, 2017 4:07 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His faithfulness as a Promise-keeper.

According to Second Corinthians 1:20, “No matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.”

A consistent promise keeper is faithful, having the goodness to follow through with stated intentions, and having the strength to make it happen, despite facing opposition that wants to thwart those purposes. Because these are the qualities of God, His promises are trustworthy and true.

Before Joshua died, he said to the Israelites, “Not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed.”

God’s faithfulness as a promise keeper is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.
