Focus On God-Jesus As The True Testimony

September 19th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Philippians 4:8 gives us a list of things to think about. This devotional examines how our focus on Jesus helps us stay focused on the quality of whatever is true.

In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the true testimony from God.

John was one of Jesus’ disciples who wrote about Him in John 21:24, “We know that his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If everyone of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”

Elsewhere, he wrote in First John 5:11, “This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

Knowing Jesus as the true testimony from God is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Promise of Hope-Victory Over Trouble

September 14th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on John 16:33.

Among His final words to the disciples before His death, Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Three days later, He would rise from the dead.

If you experience trouble in this world, you are not alone. Jesus told us it would be this way. He is honest with us about the challenges we will face while we live on the earth. Financial stress, loneliness, physical sickness, grief, and persecution for our faith are a number of troubling realities that people face in this world.

But to the person who trusts in Jesus and follows Him daily, there is another reality-a greater reality that gives us peace in the midst of the storms of life. Jesus has overcome the world. Because He has overcome the world, we can have faith that He will help us to overcome the world too. We live with this hope in First John 5:5, “Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”

Victory in Christ is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Focus On God-His Ability To Do What Is Impossible For Us

September 13th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His ability to do what is humanly impossible.

Looking at the history of the Bible, we would have to acknowledge that our faith depends on a mighty God who works miracles.

By His command, He was able to create something out of nothing. This was the birth of the world.

God kept His promise to Abraham to provide a son when Sarah was past her childbearing years. This was the birth of the nation of Israel.

The hope of redemption came to the world through a virgin birth. This was the birth of Jesus.

Jesus died on a cross, then rose from the dead three days later. He is uniquely qualified to save us from our sins, restore us to God, and give us eternal life with Him. This is spiritual birth: to accept this gracious gift. Luke 1:37 says, “Nothing is impossible with God.”

God’s ability to do what is humanly impossible is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

Be Like My Sunflower

September 11th, 2017 No comments

Look at this sunflower!  I grew a bunch of them this summer, but this one is the biggest. It truly lives up to the variety’s name: “Mammoth Sunflower”. I am amazed that such a humongous flower–with such a heavy head of seeds and such a woody stalk–can come from such a small seed.

I took a few minutes in the sunshine today to look around my yard. The vegetables in my garden have maxed out the square footage I gave them. The plants in pots on my patio have spilled over the edges.  In just one season, so much has happened!

It reminded me of the verse-of-the-day that popped up in my Bible App earlier this morning:

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”   (Colossians 2:6-7 NIV, Spiritual Fullness in Christ)

I made a note in my heart and want to encourage you, too! Continue to live your life in Christ.  Root yourself in Him. Build yourself up by His Word. Strengthen yourself with the testimony of what He has done in your life and for those around you. Let all of that work together to produce the fruit of thankfulness in your heart.

Sometimes I imagine us as plants and God as a gardener. I think of Him taking a look around the flowerbeds when the season is coming to an end, noticing how much we’ve grown and enjoying the fruit and flowers we’ve produced. Personally, I want to be like this sunflower: a bright, strong testimony of God’s goodness and glory.

Promise of Hope-New Creation

September 8th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Second Corinthians 5:17.

“If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!”

Through faith in Jesus, we are made new. This is evident in various ways.

In relationship with Christ, we have a new mind with a new attitude. Ephesians 4:23 says that we were taught to put off our old self and be made new in the attitude of our minds.

In relationship with Christ, we have a new heart. Ezekiel 11:19 says, “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them.”

In relationship with Christ, we have a new home. Philippians 3:20 reminds believers that our citizenship is in heaven.

And in relationship with Christ, we have a new start. According to First Peter 1:3, “In his great mercy, he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

Becoming a new creation is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.
