JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the eyes of the Lord.
According to Second Chronicles 16:9, “the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
Let’s suppose for a moment that we are all children. The eyes of our parents or guardians on us may encourage us or disturb us, depending on the situation.
If they come to see us in a sports or musical performance, we might give our best effort because of their support. We are greatly encouraged by their attendance, which brings out the best in us.
On the other hand, we might not be inclined to welcome their focus on us if we are putting our hands into the forbidden cookie jar. The lawless one tries to hide their activity from the police officer.
Likewise, there are different reactions among people regarding God’s watchfulness over our activity. David, a man after God’s own heart, was in awe that God’s eyes would notice him. He said, “O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways.” Then he said, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.” That’s because David was fully committed to the Lord.
The eyes of the Lord on us are reasons to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
The 3rd Annual Kids Cookie Break Fest 2014 is now completely reserved. There are no more tickets available for this year’s festival. If you have tickets, you are still able to purchase boxed lunches to help offset the cost of the event.
If you were not able to get tickets OR if you have tickets you no longer need, here are a couple of suggestions:
Check with friends, family and church to see if they need/want tickets.
Post on the WJTL and Kids Cookie Break Facebook Page that tickets are needed/wanted.
Please be in prayer for a great event that impacts our families, the community and The Kingdom! Thank You!

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the value of mentoring relationships.
While friendships are relationships often among peers, mentoring relationships tend to have wider age differences. It might be the case where an elderly Christian is grooming a younger Christian to a place of leadership, such as Paul’s relationship with Timothy in the Bible.
Or it may be a situation where one believer is preparing another believer to succeed their role, such as Elijah preparing Elisha to become a prophet.
Another excellent example of mentorship is the parent-child relationship, where the parent brings them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
The value of mentoring relationships can be found in the opportunity to pass the faith along from generation to generation.
Psalm 78:4 says, “We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.” Verse 7 says, “Then they would put their trust in God.”
The value of mentoring relationships is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to 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.)
Sidewalk Prophets played a show for an enthusiastic crowd last week at the Junction Center Tent. The band, led by lead singer Dave Frey, played several tracks off their first two projects: “These Simple Truths” from 2009; and “Live Like That,” from 2012. (Look for a new project in 2015.)
Dave Frey says, “It’s not always easy for any of us to do what God has called us to do; to go make disciples of the world.” Not only is Dave Frey a talented, soulful singer, he’s also a gifted songwriter and storyteller. On New Tunes at 9, he told the story of a Christian on a mission: to share the truth of Christ—one man’s encounter with illusionist Penn Jillette, and how that story ties in with the new Sidewalk Prophets’ song, Save My Life.” (Listen to the conversation here: https://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/)

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the purpose of accountable relationships.
In seeking accountable relationships, we are enlisting the support of another to help us stay true to our commitments. In the context of faith, this relates to our commitment to following Christ.
Chip Ingram says there are a number of reasons why we need accountable relationships. We have the tendency to underestimate the power of our sinful passions. We have the tendency to overestimate our ability to handle temptation. And we have the tendency to believe that our struggles and temptations are unique.
One of God’s resources for helping us in temptation is the body of Christ. Discernment is important when establishing accountable relationships. It should be with a trusted friend who loves the Lord, and who is genuinely interested in seeing us grow in God’s grace.
Hebrews 3:12 supports accountable relationships with these words: “See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
An Accountable relationship is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

I got an email from Jeff Rickabaugh, the worship director at Cross Roads BIC Church. He had a great idea for a theme on the Praise & Worship Show! He’s been using “question and answer songs” during worship times with his church and has found they can really unleash hearts and minds in worship. He says, “[We acknowledge] that we might not know everything, be we know the One who does.” I really loved putting together this playlist–with some song suggestions from Jeff, too! I hope you get as much out of listening to it as I did!
If there’s a theme suggestion you have, I would love to hear it! Please get in touch.
