Promise Of Hope-Immeasurably More

July 20th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Ephesians 3:20 and 21.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

The things of this world often tend to offer more than they deliver. Many of the things we consume fall short of expectation. On the other hand, as we get to know Jesus more, we learn that He is much more valuable than we previously imagined, and His love is much greater than we could ever comprehend, and His strength is able to accomplish more in us than we ever dreamed.

The power of God beyond imagination is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

About Community Calendar Events

July 18th, 2017 11 comments

The community calendar is both the literal calendar that you find on our events page as well as the public service announcements you hear DJ’s read on the air.

A few tips for the events calendar:

1.  You can click on any event and find more information.

2.  Color codes (when viewing the calendar by month):

Green: Get up and Go Show guests

Red: Kids Cookie Break Events

Orange: WJTL Live Events

Blue: Community Events

3. To submit your information,  click on the image that says “Add Your Own Community Event”  at wjtl.com/eventswjtl_event_add

 

Once your information is  submitted, it’s reviewed.  Once approved, it is posted online and also made eligible to be read on the air.    (Be sure to adjust the event time and date in the drop box section because that is the date and time that it appears on the calendar)  We suggest submitting your information at least 2 weeks prior to the event to give ample time for approval and posting.

4.  We try to announce events that make sense for us to mention on WJTL.  So, if an event is about a band or music style that we don’t play,  geared to a very specific audience (like a church business meeting), or Sunday morning events (due to the fact that there are hundreds of churches in the area doing special things every Sunday morning) they would not be listed.  There are several other guidelines, but these are some of the biggies.  Please realize there are many man organizations in the area hoping to share about their special event, because of that, we cannot be available for the posting of events that recur on a regular basis.

5.  PSA’s are free and we do our best to give attention to as many as we can on the air.

If you have any other questions about an announcement you heard or need help,  please email contact@wjtl.com.

Promise Of Hope-Understanding Origin of Jesus’ Teachings

July 17th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on John 7:17.

Jesus said, “Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.”

When Jesus came to earth, His words and actions did not depart from His Heavenly Father’s message to the world. Jesus said to His followers, “I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.” He also said, “The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.”

Jesus is saying that as our lives come into alignment with God’s will, it will be made clear to us that the teachings of Jesus originate from heaven, and are not separated from the Father’s wisdom. We will believe Jesus’ words to be true, and will learn to follow His teachings. His counsel will guide us where God wants us to go.

Understanding the inspiration behind Jesus’ teachings is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Focus On God-Multiplying Impact

July 14th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His ability to multiply our offerings for Kingdom impact.

According to John chapter 6, at least five thousand people formed a great crowd to gather around Jesus. But there was a shortage of food, and Jesus wanted to feed them. But where would the food come from?

One of Jesus’ disciples, Andrew pointed out, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” With Jesus’ touch, the answer became “far enough to satisfy every person in the crowd.”

This true story shows what can happen when we offer Jesus what little we have, (whether a tithe or our spiritual gift). He can multiply something we consider ordinary or insignificant and touch many lives with it. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

God’s ability to multiply our offerings is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Promise of Hope-Legacy of Faith

July 13th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Philippians 1:6.

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

It is an amazing thought to consider that the God who made us will choose to work through us, even as He is working on us. After we receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, He enables us to grow more mature in the faith through the truth of His Scripture and life’s experiences.

He also enables us to become a witness for the Lord that speaks to His transforming power in our lives. And that witness lives on through the people we have reached with the Gospel, even after our death until the coming of the Lord.

A lasting legacy of faith is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Reflections Of An Memorable Day

July 11th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Recently, my wife and I attended a funeral service and a wedding reception on the same day. It was the first time I had ever done that, and there was a wide range of emotions that we shared that day-from the tears of sadness at the funeral to the music on the dance floor at the wedding reception.

Ecclesiastes 7:2 says, “It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone, the living should take this to heart.”

I thought about that verse that day. I was glad for the experience of the wedding reception for it was a celebration of life, and a celebration of committed love. There is real joy in that kind of celebration.

But the funeral was also a celebration of life, remembering someone’s faithfulness to the Lord, and someone’s special qualities that added joy to our lives while they lived. That person was my mother-in-law, and she will be missed.

Among the sympathy cards we received, one person noted how at the service, they were challenged with some legacy questions. After I am gone, how will I be remembered? Will I be remembered as someone who loved the Lord and loved my family? These are some of the ways that attending the house of mourning can help us make the most of the opportunities that God gives us with our window of time on this earth.

Ecclesiastes 7:2 gives us wisdom for turning to God at the crossroads of life.
