Reason To Believe-Height Of God’s Love

June 23rd, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the height of God’s love.

Psalm 103, verse 11 says, “As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.”

High towers are like magnets to our eyes. If we approach a major city, those are the structures that tend to capture our attention first.

But no tower extends into the heavens like the love of God, which reflects the distance that Jesus traveled to demonstrate God’s love at the cross.

Proverbs 18:10 tells us that the name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

God’s love stands tall as a place of refuge for our soul.

The height of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Depth Of God’s Love

June 22nd, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the depth of God’s love.

Dwight Moody once said that “God has cast our confessed sins into the depths of the sea, and He’s even put a “No Fishing” sign over the spot.”

The depth of God’s love draws our attention to His mercy and forgiveness.

Micah 7:18 says, “Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever, but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

When we come into the light through confession and repentance, God casts our sins out of His sight where they are remembered no more.

The depth of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Reason To Believe-Width Of God’s Love

June 20th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason To Believe is the width of God’s love.

This dimension of God’s love highlights the distance He puts between sin and the person who lives in holy reverence for His name.

Psalm 103, verse 12 says, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.”

East is as far away as you can get from the west. They are in the opposite direction. As our sins are pulled away from us, they lose their influence over us, and our guilt is removed.

Jesus is the key to forgiveness. He is the One who spread out His arms at the cross and submitted to the Father’s will for the redemption of humanity. As we turn to Him for forgiveness, so our relationship with God is restored. Our spirit is refreshed. Our hope is renewed.

The width of God’s love is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Q and A-Fatherhood

June 17th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Q and A Segment explores the question, “What are some commendable qualities of fatherhood?”

With Father’s Day approaching on Sunday, we turn our attention to the qualities of a dad that are exceptional for training a child in the way they should go.

A father who is a good example is a motivator for their children. In First Thessalonians 2:11, the Apostle Paul told the church that he dealt with them as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging them to live lives worthy of God.

A father who is a good example practices what they teach. We see that in Deuteronomy 6, verse 6: “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home, and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up.” This verse encourages dads to look for teachable moments throughout the day.

A father who is a good example is also patient in the training process. They are not provoking children to anger with unrealistic expectations. Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” These are some ways that a father can be a good and godly example for their children in the Year of Exploration.

Reason To Believe-Conversion of John Newton

June 15th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the conversion of John Newton.

In the 1700’s, John Newton was moved by his relationship with Jesus to leave behind the slave trade and become an ordained minister of the Gospel.

His famous hymn and epitaph reflect the contrast of his life before knowing Christ and after his conversion.

The lyrics to his famous hymn begin this way: Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see.

His epitaph reads: John Newton, Clerk, once an infidel and libertine, a servant of slaves in Africa, was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had long labored to destroy.

Ephesians 2, verses 4 and 5 shows us how change is possible: “Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-It is by grace you have been saved.”

The conversion of John Newton was a life-changing moment and is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
