Word of Encouragement-Church

June 15th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is the Church.

Some people think of church as a building, but in reality, the church is the people of God. Jesus is the Head of the church and the builder of the church. He has designed the church to take the gospel to the world, and today, that assignment is still in motion.

It is also significant to note that Jesus loves the church. He died for the church and is in the process of purifying the church until He returns for His followers.

Ephesians 5:25 compares the relationship between Christ and His church to the intimacy of a marriage relationship. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.”

Find encouragement in God’s love and purpose for the church in the Year of Endurance.

Eye On Integrity-Blameless Life

August 10th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Proverbs 20, verse 7.

The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.

Noah and Job were men in the Bible described as blameless. Noah walked faithfully with God. Job feared God and shunned evil.

A blameless person is not a perfect person. We have all disobeyed God at some point in our lives. But there are Scriptures that can help us better understand what it means to lead a blameless life.

Psalm 15:2 describes the way of blamelessness as doing what is righteous, and speaking the truth from our heart.

In Psalm 19, David prayed that God would keep him from willful sins, so that they don’t rule over him. Then, he would be blameless, innocent of great transgression.

Walking the way of a blameless life is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Eye on Integrity-A Blameless Life

February 22nd, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 19, verses 12 and 13.

“Who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.”

These thoughts express the earnest desire of a man to be cleared of wrongdoing and to have a right relationship with God. Prayer and surrender are good starting places for making things right with God. Prayer and surrender are good starting places with God every day.

Jesus came to set us free from the tyranny of sin. If we follow Jesus daily, His truth reigns over us, and sin no longer has control over our lives. His peace will fill our hearts, and enable us to live without fear of condemnation.

Walking a blameless life is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
