Daily Challenge-Praise the Lord Every Day

May 20th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to praise the Lord every day.

This was the commitment of David, expressed in Psalm 145, verse 2. “Every day, I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.”

Not only is God worthy of our praise for today, but He is also worthy of our praise forever.

In this Psalm, David identifies the praiseworthy qualities of God. These qualities remind us why God is most worthy of our praise.

Here are a few of them: verse 6 talks about God’s awesome works and great deeds.

Verse 7 talks about His abundant goodness.

Verse 8 tells us that the LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, and rich in love.

Our worship for God is meaningful when we acknowledge His awesome greatness, abundant goodness, and amazing grace.

Take the daily challenge to praise the LORD today and every day on the journey of faith.

Daily Challenge-Transformation

January 27th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to step into the light of transformation.

This process starts with a proper view of God’s mercy. His mercy spares us from the punishment that we deserve because of our sin. John Newton, the writer of Amazing Grace, observed near the end of his life, “I remember two things clearly, ‘I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.’”

Romans 12:1 says, “In view of God’s mercy, offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Transformation happens when we respond to God’s mercy with a heart of gratitude and worship, and renew our mind to follow Gods’ will.

Take the daily challenge to walk in the transformation that embraces God’s purposes on the journey of faith.

Freedom Phrase-Sharing Our Story of Transformation

July 12th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Luke 8:39.

Jesus said to a man who was delivered from demon possession, “Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”  The man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.

The Redeemed life is not a perfect life, but it is a transformed life by the power of Jesus Christ. This man was changed by God’s grace. He was bound by evil, but Jesus freed him to have a testimony of God’s power working in his life. Our story may have a similar pattern, stained by a sinful, self-destructive past, but cleansed and set free to live for God today. That’s amazing grace, and it is a story worth telling.

Through Jesus, we are set free to share our testimony of God’s amazing grace.

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.
