Relationship Building Principle-Godly Character

July 20th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK-Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Timothy 4:12.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.”

This message was from the Apostle Paul to Timothy, who was a younger leader in the church. Timothy may have been in his mid-30s or even younger when this letter was written to him. But Paul did not see his young age as a barrier to ministry if his character was effective in representing Jesus Christ. Age is not a barrier if a church leader lives under the influence of Jesus Christ, and demonstrates leadership guidelines found in the Bible.

Paul was emphasizing the importance for leaders to be an influence through godly character, in our words, conduct, expressions of love, and deeply held convictions about Jesus.

In First Timothy 4:16, Paul said to Timothy, “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

Setting an example of godly character is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Moment Of Celebration-God’s Righteous Authority

January 16th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the righteous authority of God.

In Deuteronomy 10:17, Moses told the Israelites, “For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.”

There is a familiar saying that makes the claim that “absolute power corrupts absolutely.” That would be a likely scenario in a kingdom ruled by flawed character. However, absolute power does not corrupt God, because He is holy and righteous. There is no flaw in Him. His judgments are true and just. His law is perfect. His power is supreme. His promises are dependable. His righteousness is a source of blessing for His people and purifies us from all sin through faith in the name of Jesus.

We need this kind of leader, someone who is great in power and good in virtue. Jesus is that kind of leader-without any moral imperfection and at the same time, merciful to all imperfect people who call on His name for forgiveness. Under His leadership, we have the guidance we need to walk in the ways of the Lord.

The righteous authority of God is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
