Moment Of Celebration-Laughter

john : February 3, 2014 4:17 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the laughter of Sarah.

Laughter has been called the best medicine, but not all forms of laughter are healthy. Such was the case on one occasion when Sarah laughed. Three visitors came to visit her and her husband Abraham. One of those visitors was the LORD.

By this time, Sarah was well-advanced in years.  She overheard a conversation that Abraham was having with the three visitors. The LORD said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year; and Sarah your wife will have a son.”

That is when Sarah laughed the cynic’s laugh. She thought, “After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have this pleasure?”

When the LORD asked Abraham why his wife laughed, she denied it.

The word of the LORD proved true, and Sarah did give birth to Isaac, whose name means “laughter.” This time, Sarah laughed for a different reason. She was celebrating God’s miracle of new life.

The birth of Isaac reveals that God is able to turn human impossibilities into Divine opportunities. God’s people rejoice at the evidence of His mighty Hand.

Each miracle of new life 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.) Casting Crowns released “Thrive,” their seventh project this week.  “Thrive” is the follow-up to “Come to the Well” a record that debuted in 2011, at No. 2, behind Adele’s project, 21. (Coincidentally, “Come to the Well” included “Courageous,” a song whose music video promoted the film of the same name.) Fronted by singer Mark Hall, Casting Crowns began as a student worship band; they released their self-titled, 2003 debut, a disc that included their first radio hit, “Voice of Truth.” In spite of the group’s enormous success, Mark Hall remains focused on their mission, while remaining true to their roots in youth ministry. For more on Casting Crowns, go to https://www.castingcrowns.com/home.  And don’t forget about the Thrive Tour: Thursday, March 20 (the first day of Spring), featuring Casting Crowns, Laura Story, and For King and Country, at the Giant Center, Hershey.

Moment Of Celebration-God’s Pardon

john : January 29, 2014 4:40 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the key to God’s Divine pardon.

Many people today are familiar with the term “presidential pardon.” This is what happens when our nation’s leader chooses to forgive someone’s crime and the penalty associated with it. Interestingly, the acceptance of a pardon implies an admission of guilt.

According to the Bible, Jesus is the key that gives us access to God’s pardon for our sins. Facing the truth of our moral failures is essential for finding the release from guilt that we desperately need.

Through faith in Jesus Christ, our forgiveness is complete and our penalty has already been paid through the blood of Jesus shed at the cross.

Romans 8:1 says, “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”

Jesus, as the key to God’s Divine Pardon, is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Salvation and Strength

john : January 28, 2014 2:18 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the power of God to save us and be our source of strength.

In Isaiah 30:15, this is what the Sovereign LORD says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength.”

Repentance is a turning point that acknowledges we have been going the wrong way and turn to Jesus for forgiveness and direction to follow His way.

Rest is a reliance on God’s grace to save us. We acknowledge that no amount of good deeds could ever outweigh our bad deeds to make us right with God. We do not have the ability to climb ourselves out of our debt of sin. But because of what Jesus did for us at the cross, we believe that He paid the price of our debt. And so, we depend on Jesus.

Quietness is a place of solitude at God’s throne of grace, convincing us that God is in control.

Trust is a place of confidence in the LORD even in times of trouble.

The power of God to save us and be our source of strength is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
