Light Reflection-Luke 12:35 Keep Lamps Burning

August 30th, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Luke 12:35.

Jesus said, “Be dressed, ready for service, and keep your lamps burning, like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks, they can immediately open the door for him.”

Jesus is urging us to be ready for His return. The way to be prepared is to be one of His faithful servants who watches for His return. This is a motivating promise to be a faithful steward of what God has entrusted to us.  Jesus later said in verse 42, “Who is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns.”

This Light Reflection inspires us to keep our lamps burning for God with faithful service and wise stewardship in the Year to Shine.

Light Reflection-Psalm 145:13 Everlasting Kingdom

June 6th, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Psalm 145:13.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.

Earthly kings rise and fall. But the light of God’s kingdom shines forever by the glory of God.

The Kingdom of God is a place where faithfulness is honored and promises are kept. Hope is fulfilled. Love is complete. Joy overflows from the hearts of those who dwell there. It will never be overthrown by another kingdom. God’s kingdom will never be shaken. That has huge implications for those who follow Jesus. Nothing in all creation is able to separate us from God’s love. We can live with the confidence that His grace stands strong forever.

This Light Reflection inspires us to reflect the qualities of God’s Kingdom with the witness of our lives in the Year to Shine.

Faith-Building Verses-Second Corinthians 1:18-20

January 27th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verses are Second Corinthians 1:18 to 20.

The Apostle Paul wrote, “As surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not “yes” and “no”. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us-by me and Silas and Timothy-was not “yes” and “no”, but in him, it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ.”

Over and over in the Bible, we get the clear message that God is faithful. One of the implications of His faithfulness is that we can count on God’s promises to be trustworthy and true. He is faithful to do what He says He will do. So, whenever you see God’s promises in the Bible, you can count on Him to fulfill that promise in His own way and in His own timing.

These faith-building verses inspire us to trust God’s promises in the Year of Relationship.

Person of Integrity-Timothy

March 16th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Person of Integrity from the Bible is Timothy.

He worked with Paul the Apostle, who mentored him and spoke highly of him in his writings.

On one occasion, he wrote in First Corinthians 4:17, “For this reason, I have sent to you Timothy, my son whom I love, who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my way of life in Christ Jesus.”

On another occasion, he wrote in First Thessalonians 3:2, “We sent Timothy, who is our brother and co-worker in God’s service in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith.”

In these two letters, we see Paul’s confidence in Timothy to be reliable to send edifying messages to the churches.

The faithfulness of Timothy to be one of Paul’s trusted messengers inspires us to build the church with our words and to live a life of integrity.

Focus On God-Promise Keeper

January 26th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His faithfulness as a Promise-keeper.

According to Second Corinthians 1:20, “No matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.”

A consistent promise keeper is faithful, having the goodness to follow through with stated intentions, and having the strength to make it happen, despite facing opposition that wants to thwart those purposes. Because these are the qualities of God, His promises are trustworthy and true.

Before Joshua died, he said to the Israelites, “Not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed.”

God’s faithfulness as a promise keeper is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.
