RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Singer, songwriter and American Idol Top 3 finalist, Danny Gokey, was my guest last week on New Tunes at 9. Danny Gokey, who leads worship at his home church in Milwaukee, discussed the process of qualifying for American Idol, the competitive challenges of the show, and the Sophia’s Heart Foundation. (The Sophia’s Heart Foundation was founded by Gokey, in memory of his first-wife Sophia who, due to complications related to surgery for congenital heart disease, died just weeks before he auditioned for American Idol.) Danny says, “I want to see my music career as a movement.” I asked Danny to explain his emotional reaction when told by the judges he would not advance on American Idol. (Listen to the conversation here https://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/) For more on Danny Gokey, go to http://www.dannygokey.com/ for facebook, videos and music, including his new single, the title-track to his second project, “Hope In Front of Me.”
JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on a praise report from two missionaries.
Sometimes, missionaries come back to the church from where they were sent to report on what God has done through their outreach. This also happened in the Bible.
Acts 14 traces the missionary adventures of Paul and Barnabas as they went to different communities to share the hope of the Gospel. Eventually, they went back to Antioch, their launching point.
According to Acts 14:26, on arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
When missionaries return to share their stories, the church has the opportunity to join in on the celebration of what God is doing. Sometimes, we might wonder what kind of impact our financial gifts or prayers, or letters of encouragement to missionaries is really accomplishing. Praise reports answer those questions and encourage the church to keep supporting the work of missions.
Praise reports from missionaries are reasons to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the message of the cross.
The good news of Jesus speaks of His coming to the earth, His death on a cross, His resurrection from the dead, and His promise to return.
These are vital elements of the Gospel that deserve our full attention for real and lasting hope.
First Corinthians 1:18 underscores the different reactions to the message of the cross. The Apostle Paul said, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.”
Death is hard to think about, especially when it involves suffering. But Jesus was willing to face death, even though He did not deserve death. Why did He do this? There was an important reason for Jesus going to the cross. His death satisfied the wrath of God against sin, and expressed the love of the Father toward sinners. This is amazing grace that forgives the sins of those who embrace the message of the cross. This is love, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
The message of the cross is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Former Creed lead singer Scott Stapp was my guest last week on New Tunes at 9. (Listen here https://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/.) Scott Stapp rose to prominence as the founding member of Creed, a hard-rock band, whose 1997 debut, “My Own Prison,” was a colossal success, selling over 6-million copies; Creed’s second project, “Human Clay,” sold over 11-million copies. Creed was embraced by fans world wide before disbanding in 2004. Scott Stapp released his first solo project, “The Great Divide,” toured solo, reformed Creed for a reunion tour, and now releases his strongest solo project, “Proof of Life.” During last week’s conversation, Scott Stapp spoke candidly about his troubled relationship with his stepfather, struggles with fame, alcohol abuse and suicide; Stapp also talked about the new song, “Only One.” (For more on Scott Stapp, go to http://scottstapp.com/.

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on power of the Gospel to change us.
In reality, the good news of Jesus Christ changes lives in many ways. Four changes are found in Romans 1:16 and 17. The Apostle Paul said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last; just as it is written, ‘The righteous will live by faith.’
One of the ways the gospel changes us is by saving our soul. Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
A second way that the gospel changes us is by making us right with God. Christians are not perfect, but we are forgiven and restored.
A third way the gospel changes us is by giving us a valuable advocate. Jesus has proven through the cross and empty grave that He is our worthy Savior, mighty God, and a faithful friend to the end.
A fourth way that the gospel changes us is by giving us enthusiasm to live the Christian life and publicly proclaim Jesus as Lord.
The power of the Gospel to change us is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
