Freedom Phrase-Sing With Joy

August 28th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Psalm 33, verse 1.

“Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.”

When we commit our lives to Jesus, we are moved by His love to honor Him in worship. God has given us a meaningful way to express our devotion and praise to God from the overflow of our joy. That way is music.   

Verse 2 of Psalm 33 encourages us to “praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.”

Through Jesus, we are set free to celebrate His glory and grace with songs of worship.

P. McCaskey High School Gospel Choir, this night will be an exciting, uplifting and Christ-centered night of worship.

This morning’s lineup is special.  It’s a Breakthrough Theme!  These songs are powerful — helping us to sing our way through impossible situations.  If you’re in one, or know someone who is, I hope you receive a boost of confidence that God gets our victory before the battle begins. Proceed with praise and faith!

Praying you are encouraged—and that your breakthrough is coming soon!

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” –Romans 12:12 (NIV)

“Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!”–Romans 15:13 (MSG)

Red Letter Wisdom-Worship In Prayer

March 30th, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in Matthew 6:13b.

Jesus taught us to pray, “For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

This is an acknowledgement of the greatness of God, placing Him on His rightful place on the throne, having authority to reign with supreme power and eternal glory.

This underscores an important point about worship being at the heart of our prayer life. God is glorified and our soul is edified when we express adoration for Him, and exalt His worthy name.

Psalm 40:16 says, “May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The LORD is great!’”

The words of Jesus inspire us to a place of worship in the Year of Redemption.

John Shirk
