20/20 Insight-Mercy In View

January 31st, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on the power of God’s mercy to transform our lives.

In Romans 12, verses 1 and 2, we see God’s mercy as the starting place for transformation from the inside out.

“In view of God’s mercy, offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Of all the voices that seek our attention, the most important voice is God. He has spoken at the cross. He has spoken at the empty grave, and He has spoken in the Bible. His message speaks to us of mercy as Jesus took the penalty for our sins on the cross. Keeping God’s mercy in view, we are moved to gratitude and worship. We are also better equipped to discern the will of God for our lives.

Focusing on God’s mercy gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.

Eye on Integrity-Glorifying God with Music

June 27th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 69:30.

“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.”

Throughout the Bible, music is used as an instrument of praise for God. Moses sang a song after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea safely on dry ground.

After the LORD delivered David from his enemies, David sang to the LORD, “I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations.”

Paul and Silas sang hymns to God while they were in prison just before an earthquake shook them to freedom.

Glorifying God with music is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Eye On Integrity-The Life

June 8th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on John 14:6.

Jesus told His disciples, “I am the life.”

He is the source of life. He spoke of two dimensions of life when He held out the offer of life to us-eternal life and abundant life.

In John 6:40, He said, “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.”

In John 10:10, He said, I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” Jesus offers the kind of life that abounds in peace, in love, in grace, in joy, in hope, in gratitude, and in good deeds. Receiving Jesus as Lord is the key to these abounding treasures.

Faith walks toward God, using the bridge that He has provided to cross over from death to life.

Walking in the life that Jesus has for us is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

This week in my devotions, I read from the “Jolt Of Joy” plan on the YouVersion Bible App.  It’s based on the writing of Carol McLeod at www.JustJoyMinistries.com

There were a few sentences that really stuck out to me and inspired today’s lineup with a concentration on the connection of thanksgiving and joy.

“It is important to understand the relationship between joy and thanksgiving . If you are a thankful person, joy cannot be so very far away.  If you are a joyful person, I can guarantee that you count your blessings loudly and daily.  Thanksgiving is the password that opens the door of His presence to His people.  And, when you enter into His presence, you know that you will find there: JOY!”

Lesson Of Faith-Chasing Away The Grumbles with Gratitude

November 21st, 2013 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Philippians 2:14 gives us a direct word of instruction that will affect our relationships and our witness for God if we heed the message.

“Do everything without complaining or arguing.” Persistent complaining or an argumentative spirit saps the energy from relationships. The Israelites in Moses’ day were known for complaining about their plight on the way to the Promised Land, and they got nowhere fast. Complaints focus on the problem, without seeking a solution or without turning to prayer. A thankful person will recognize problems, but can also see opportunities through life’s challenges.

Paul, the writer of Philippians, knew that complaining or arguing undermined the strength of the church’s witness for Jesus. And so, he proceeds to explain why we should do everything without complaining or arguing-“So that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe, as you hold out the word of life.”

With gratitude to God, we can chase away a complaining or arguing spirit, and shine the light of the Gospel to this generation.

The credible witness of a thankful person is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

PRAISE&WORSHIP THANKSGIVING EDITION!

November 18th, 2012 6 comments

KRISTI LEIGH — It’s time for one of my favorite Praise & Worship Show themes of the entire year: The Thanksgiving Edition!  Whether your life is great right now…or totally falling apart, God is good.  I don’t share these words lightly–I’ve lived them and know they’re true!  When things are rough, it can be difficult to sing about God’s goodness or our feelings of gratitude toward Him, but my encouragement is to forget about your trials and challenges.  Just think about Jesus.  Your sacrifice of praise is a beautiful and powerful thing!

To quote Hillsong’s “Desert Song”:
“All of my life, in every season
You are still God and I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship!”
I hope this Thanksgiving is alive in your heart!
