Red Letter Wisdom-Peace of God

April 11th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in John 14:27.

Jesus told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

The peace of God is a wonderful treasure and is available for those who trust in Jesus completely. Just before Jesus died, He was talking about peace that was better than anything this world could give.

With faith in Jesus, we are able to rest in God’s grace. We don’t have  to prove our worth to Him. He has proved His love for us.

With faith in Jesus, we have a secure relationship that is built on sure promises of blessing.

With faith in Jesus, we have a Savior, who does not count our sins against us. We are forgiven and reconciled to God through Jesus.

The words of Jesus inspire us to embrace the peace that Jesus offers us in the Year of Redemption.

Lesson Of Faith-Tower Of Refuge

September 11th, 2013 No comments

JOHN SHIRK- Today, WJTL remembers the wisdom of finding our security in God’s grace.

Proverbs 18:10 says, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”

A tower is a symbol of strength and might.  When 9/11 happened 12 years ago, the towers collapsed in New York City. Thousands of people lost their lives in the terror attacks. Our sense of security was shaken that day.

While the towers of this world are strong, they are not totally secure. Yet, in the spiritual sense, there is a place of true and lasting security.  We can find security for our soul by placing our trust in the grace of Jesus Christ. That is where we find eternal life, and a Kingdom that cannot be shaken by the dark forces of this world.

We can run to Jesus. He is a Mighty Fortress, strong and powerful to save us from our sins and protect us from the enemy who seeks to destroy us.

Finding our security in God’s grace is a lesson of faith worth remembering.
