Focus on God’s Goodness-Eternal Life

April 29th, 2024 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in John 6, verse 40.

Jesus said, “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

The Gospel draws us to faith in Jesus. Eternal life is a priceless treasure of God’s saving grace. Having this gift does not mean the absence of physical death, but rather a resurrected life beyond the grave. The Apostle Paul saw death has a promotion into the presence of God.

In Philippians 1:21, he said “To live is Christ and to die is gain.” Forever is a long time. Heaven awaits the gathering of the saints in a place of peace and celebration in the presence of the Lord. God has made a way for us to be there, and His name is Jesus.

The gift of eternal life reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.

Focus on God’s Goodness-Enduring Word of God

April 4th, 2024 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Isaiah 40, verse 8.

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.

We can easily get distracted by putting too much priority on temporary things, which are here today and gone tomorrow.  There is more to life than the stuff of this world. There is a heavenly place, where Jesus reigns on the throne. Jesus told us to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven. That is where His Kingdom lasts forever. Worship of His name lasts forever. His love lasts forever. His grace lasts forever.

The final verse of the Bible declares: “the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.” And so it will be for eternity. That is where God’s Word can be found on the heart of everyone who lives there.

The enduring word of God reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.

Focus on God’s Goodness-Length of God’s Love

February 16th, 2024 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s goodness is found in Isaiah 59:1.

“Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.”

God’s love is long enough to reach us and rescue us from our sin. Verse 2 tells us that our iniquities have separated us from God. That is why we need redemption. Jesus stretched out His arms at the cross to extend forgiveness to us. Our barrier of sin is removed when we open up to God’s grace.

Jesus went to great lengths from heaven to earth to save us. With His long arm of salvation, He embraces us with His love, brings us into His family of believers, and gives us eternal life. Eternity is a long time. His grace lasts forever.

The length of God’s love reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
