Good News Focus-God is Our Life-Giver

July 10th, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Good News Focus is on Acts 17, verses 24 and 25.

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.”

God did not create us because He needed us. He was doing fine before He made the world. After He made the world and placed humanity in the Garden of Eden, He delighted in what He made.

He is our Creator. We are His creation. He does not need us, but we certainly do need Him. And He places us where we live at this point in time so that we might seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him.  He is not far from any one of us. He is just a prayer away, and is able to give us a new life that is built on the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.

Jesus is our Source of Good News, leading us to a place of depending on Him for life and breath and everything else in the Year of Vision.

Reason To Believe-People All Over The World

September 8th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is people all over the world.

Today, there are over 7.1 billion people in the world, and God is the creator of each person who lives on the face of the earth at this time.

Psalm 145, verse 9 tells us that “ the LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.”

The LORD knew about each one of us before we were born, He knew what we needed, and He provided a way for us to live forever with Him when He sent Jesus to the world.

The writer of Psalm 95 acknowledged God as Creator and responded with worship. Verse 6 says, “Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God.” Our breathing proves that we exist, but our worship reflects that we thrive for the glory of God.

The people of the world have been made in the image of God, and were made to bring glory to God. The existence of people on the earth is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
