Praise & Worship Playlist

February 2nd, 2020 No comments

This morning’s playlist includes lots of new songs from Rend Collective, Chris McClarney, MoveSomebody and a bunch from Matt Redman’s new release “Let There Be Wonder”! Plus, clips from my recent conversation with Cory Asbury. (You can hear the whole thing on the Praise & Worship Podcast, Episode 5)! I do have his very latest, the acoustic rendition of “The Father’s House” in today’s lineup.


Plus, some little song sets with encouraging reminders in the lyrics, focusing on God moving even in the winter season of our lives — and his new mercies and great faithfulness.

20/20 Insight-Focus on God’s Faithfulness

January 10th, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on God’s faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22 says, “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my portion; therefore, I will wait for him.’ The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.”

In the morning, some people see a sunrise. In his view of the sunrise, the writer of Lamentations saw more. He saw hope in the Lord. He was reminded of the faithfulness of God.

Focusing on God’s faithfulness gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian faith.

Freedom Phrase-New Start

March 14th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK -In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Lamentations 3:22 and 23.

“Because of the LORD’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

God’s faithful love for us is written in the sky each morning with the reliable appearance of the sunrise. Even as the sunrise breaks the darkness of the night, so the grace of God has the power to break the spiritual strongholds in our lives that keep us in the darkness.

While his people were living in captivity, the writer of Lamentations was comforted by the compassion of God to be their source of light and hope.

Through Jesus, we are set free to receive a new start for a brighter day.

Eye On Integrity-Humble Worship

July 31st, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 138, verse 2.

“I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.”

As we see this passage in light of the Gospel, Jesus is the name above all names. His name is worthy of our praise. His faithfulness can be seen in the nail scars of His hands where He was pierced for our transgressions. If we search the entire universe, we will not find a more faithful friend or worthy Savior than Jesus. His name and word have the power to break the chains of sin in our lives and lift us to a place of fellowship with Him. As we bow to Jesus, we agree with Him that His name and His word are exalted above all else.

Walking in humble worship is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Person of Integrity-Jesus

January 4th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – We have a new theme this year for encouraging growth in your relationship with God. 2018 has been designated as the Year of Integrity. We will take a look at what God’s Word has to say about integrity. We will also examine how God’s people walked with integrity.

Today’s Person of Integrity is Jesus.

When Jesus was inviting people into a relationship with Him, He used two words that were life-changing for whoever would accept His invitation.

Those two words were “Follow me.” There are many faithful people in the Bible with godly characteristics to admire. But no one was like Jesus. He was the Only One who always did what was right and never sinned. He becomes the perfect example of integrity for us to follow. He is full of grace and truth. If we follow Him as Savior and Lord, He will save us from our sins and transform us into His likeness. Under His influence, we will experience a life of love and freedom and joy that this world cannot offer us.

The faithfulness of Jesus to fulfill His mission inspires us to follow Jesus and 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.

Reason To Believe-Sunrise

April 19th, 2016 No comments

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

We do not wonder if the sun will rise in the morning or ponder which hour it will appear over the eastern horizon. We might wonder if we will arise on time, but we don’t question the timing of the sunrise.

God’s faithfulness is compared to a daily sunrise. Yes, we might have questions about our own faithfulness at times, but God’s faithfulness is a quality that we can depend on. As we look to God and come under His influence, He will enable us to become more faithful.

Lamentations 3:22 gives us this reason not just to believe in God, but to also have hope in Him. “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “

Just like the sunrise, the LORD is faithful. He sent Jesus to the world at just the right time when we needed a Savior. And when the time is right, Jesus will appear again to gather His followers into His heavenly kingdom.

The faithful appearance of the sunrise is a reason to believe in God’s good news.

Encounter With Jesus-Smyrna

November 11th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s Encounter with Jesus examines His letter to the church at Smyrna.

In Revelation 2:9, His main message to this church is to commend them for their faithful witness. He says, “I know your afflictions and your poverty-yet you are rich.” “Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer.” “Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

The witness of this church reveals that followers of Christ will, at times, face persecution for our faith.

Polycarp was the bishop at Smyrna, and when he was 86 years of age, he was pressured to acknowledge Caesar as Lord. But Polycarp would not bow to the pressure. He said, “Eighty-six years I have served Christ, and He never did me any wrong. How can I blaspheme my King who saved me?” As a result of his stand for Jesus, Polycarp became a martyr for the faith.

A daily connection with Christ inspires faith and courage for times of testing.

Relationship Building Principle-Making Plans That Honor God

February 4th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK -Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Proverbs 14:22.

“Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”

Plans indicate our intentions to act. This verse is referring to the principle of sowing and reaping.

If we sow evil plans, we will stray off course from God’s intended will for our lives, and the outcome leads to confusion, dissension, and pain. Someone gets hurt when evil plans are carried out. If our plans are evil, God’s remedy is for us to turn back before we carry out those plans.

If the Lord directs our plans, those plans will be consistent with love and faithfulness, and good fruit will flow out of our actions. A generous person who refreshes others will be refreshed. What we send out is often what comes back. Those who plan what is good open the door for thriving relationships and for the name of the Lord to be honored.

Making plans that are good in the eyes of the Lord is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Lesson Of Faith-Remembering God’s Faithfulness

February 14th, 2013 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In faithfulness, we fulfill our commitments. At work, we take responsibility for our assignments. At home, we fulfill our vows to our spouse, and responsibilities to our children to raise them up in the ways of the LORD.

As we look to the LORD and His strength, we see His faithfulness expressed in love. The cross is an example of His faithful love. That is where Jesus laid down His life so that we might be brought back to life and brought back to a relationship with God.

Deuteronomy 32:4 says about God, “He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just; a faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he”

Faithfulness is a dependable quality. We can fully rely on the love that God has for us because of His faithfulness. His influence on our lives motivates us to express our love for others with honesty and faithfulness. First Corinthians 13:6 says, “Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.”

Faithfulness is a quality of love and is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
