Q and A-What is the meaning of El Shaddai?

john : May 23, 2016 4:57 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK-Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What is the meaning of “El Shaddai?”

This reference to God first appears in Genesis 17:1, where the LORD identifies Himself to Abram this way: “I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless.”

This refers to the might and self-sufficiency of God’s character. This name for God also refers to Him as our source of blessing. “El Shaddai” was how God revealed Himself to Abram when he was 99 years old. In that conversation, God assured Abram that He would fulfill His promise to him and greatly increase his number through his descendants.

Michael Card wrote a song called “El Shaddai” which became widely known through the recording by Amy Grant. Some of the lyrics say, “Through your love and through the ram, You saved the son of Abraham. Through the power of Your hand, turned the sea into dry land.”

The implication of El Shaddai is that God is completely sufficient and totally competent to do what He says He will do. He is our Provider and Sustainer, and because of that, we can trust His Word in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-Broken Circumstances

john : May 19, 2016 4:48 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is broken circumstances.

How might God use our broken circumstances to bring us to the point of faith?

Consider the example of the prodigal son in Luke 15. He squandered his wealth on wild living. For a season, he feasted on what he wanted. But it was just for a season. Then, it was gone. And he was left with an empty stomach, an empty wallet, and an empty soul. He was broken, and humbled. That is what broken circumstances will do in our lives. They will humble us. This brings us to a critical crossroads: whether to give up, try to dig out ourselves, or reach out for help.

The prodigal son came to his senses with this thought, “I will set out and go back to my father and say to him, ‘I am no longer worthy to be called your son, make me like one of your hired men.’” So he got up and went to his father. His father’s response? He was filled with compassion for his son. He ran to him and kissed him.

God welcomes us when we return to the place where we belong-His arms of grace.

The broken circumstances of our lives become opportunities for us to recognize our need for Jesus and are reasons to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-What does it mean to kick against the goads?

john : May 18, 2016 9:37 am : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What does it mean when Jesus said to Paul, ‘It is hard for you to kick against the goads?’”

The phrase “kicking against the goads” was a common expression in Bible times, referring to the practice of farmers goading their oxen in the fields.

A goad is defined as a spiked stick used for driving cattle or oxen.

According to Chuck Swindoll, there were occasions when an ox would kick at the goad. When this happened, the goad would stab into the flesh of its leg and cause greater pain.

What Jesus was saying to Paul before his conversion was that by resisting Jesus, Paul was only hurting himself.

The Holy Spirit says in Hebrews 3:7, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”

After that encounter, Paul stopped resisting Jesus and started to serve Him. His hardened heart against Christ was made tender as he received God’s love. The message that Jesus had for Paul urges us to be responsive to His promptings in the Year of Exploration.
