Reason To Believe-Wisdom Of Ten Commandments

john : May 11, 2016 5:18 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the wisdom of the Ten Commandments.

One of the reasons we have traffic patterns is because of traffic laws. If all motorists completely threw the rules of the road out the window, there would be a breakdown of order.

When the Israelites neglected the Ten Commandments, the nation began to decline. We see this in Hosea 4:1 and 2, where the prophet described their moral vacuum this way: “There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgement of God in the land. There is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing and adultery; they break all bounds and bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of this the land mourns, and all who live in it waste away.” The breaking of God’s commands was symptomatic of a society that pushed God away from them.

The Ten Commandments are built on the law of love. Jesus is the fullest expression of love. Following Jesus will move us to honor God’s commands and to share His love with others.

The wisdom of the Ten Commandments is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-How Did Jesus Define Greatness?

john : May 11, 2016 5:08 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “How did Jesus define greatness?”

An argument developed among Jesus’ disciples on the question, “Who was the greatest?”

Whenever people start asking this kind of question, either privately or out in the open, you can anticipate arguing and dissension to follow.

Jesus used this argument as a teachable moment. He said to them in Mark 9:35, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last and the servant of all.”

Jesus defined greatness in terms of serving others. He encourages us to think in terms of giving, generosity, sacrifice, and love. Jesus is the greatest of all, and He set an example of service and sacrifice for us to follow. He said in Matthew 9:26, “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

According to Jesus, service is the pathway to greatness in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-Details Of Isaiah 53

john : May 10, 2016 8:18 am : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the details of Isaiah 53.

Hundreds of years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the prophet Isaiah wrote specific details that would be fulfilled in Jesus’ life.

Verse 3 points out that He would be despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering.
Verse 5 says He was pierced for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities.

Verse 9 says that He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in His death.

Verse 11 says “after the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied.”

Verse 11 also says “By his knowledge, my righteous servant will justify many.”

In Isaiah 53, we see references to Jesus rejection, His crucifixion, resurrection, and His qualification to release us from the guilt of our sins.

The details of Isaiah 53 concerning Jesus are reasons to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-National Blessing

john : May 5, 2016 11:46 am : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What are the qualities of a nation blessed by God?”

The theme of this year’s National Day of Prayer is “Wake Up America”, emphasizing our need corporately and personally to return to God in reverence for His Holy Name.

There are Scriptures that give us insight into how a nation can return to God and receive His blessing.

The most notable is Second Chronicles 7:14, where the LORD says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

In the 1830’s a French historian traveled to America to discover what made America great. He wrote down this observation: “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

The wisdom of Proverbs 14:34 is still relevant today. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” These are some Biblical principles to remember as we pray for our nation’s leaders and communities in the Year of Exploration.

Q and A-Why Does God Allow Suffering?

john : May 4, 2016 4:17 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “Why does God allow suffering in the world?”

This is a big question that deserves some attention, because so many people ask it out loud or ponder it in their hearts.

Suffering started in the world after sin entered the human race. This was the result of a choice that Adam and Eve made, which led to the reality of physical death, conflict between people, pain during child birth, frustration from work, and shame, to name a few. God made Adam and Eve with the dignity to have the freedom to make choices. When they disregarded God’s Word and ate from the forbidden fruit, pain and suffering followed.

Ever since, our world has been broken. We live with the consequences of Adam and Eve’s decision.

The good news is that God had a plan to redeem us from the curse of sin. He sent Jesus, who suffered extreme pain at the cross, and then rose from the dead. He can sympathize with our pain, and He knows how to take us beyond it. He is preparing a place for His followers in heaven, where tears, pain, sin and death will not be found.

When it comes to suffering, there are no easy answers, but the presence of suffering calls for the compassion of Christ to be expressed through His followers in the Year of Exploration.
