Wig’s Word of God Today 7-23-2012
Shall I give my firstborn for my crime, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you: Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.Micah 6:7b-8
An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the Prophet. Matthew 12:39
Micah 6:1-4, 6-8, Psalm 50 & Matthew 12:38-42
There’s a feeling that resonates in your soul when you follow justice, seek goodness and walk humbly with God as your guide living in a beautiful constant communion with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It seems to frighten people to give up everything to live for Him in anything He brings along in life. Many of us might feel we have to give and give and give to find that freedom God has Promised to us by the death of His Son on a Cross.
What we fail to recognize is that Redemption is a gift where the price has already been paid. A payment and Sign for all ages that completes every Prophesy known to man. He came so we might live in freedom from a slavery of selfishness, sadness and scorn. When we live in justice, our behavior aligns relationships to accomplish the Will of God in providential precaution, protection, peace, and purpose allowing our lives to love goodness, gratitude and concern for the persistent faithful Covenant we live for in the LORD’s Truth. We must all listen carefully to the revealed Will of God by our thoughts, actions and deeds of our practice, prayer and proclamation.
As I sit here in Jesup, Georgia thinking about the men I laughed and cried with over the weekend in the Hills of North Carolina, I find myself crying from this amazing life of God’s Purpose from the work of Lighting Christ’s Fire inside the hearts of men over an Emmaus Retreat weekend. When I see the eyes of Christ in men who find this goodness, gratitude and concern, it’s like living in a heavenly state of God’s Joy making way for healing tears, needed confessions and needed forgiveness.
We must forgive as well as be forgiven engaging our minds, hearts and souls to live in this action of faith, hope and love. We keep the FIRE going men by a surrender to God’s Will in every aspect of our being. We must be men of faith who live in honor of God’s Decrees. Establishing and keeping this relationship can be challenging but I implore you to surround yourselves with men of faith, action and love for God’s Word. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to walk humbly with you in goodness, gratitude and concern for all people who surround us in our lives. We pray today for Julian’s continued healing. We pray for all men who “Walked to Emmaus” over the weekend find Your Purpose in faith, forgiveness and freedom. We pray for Steve’s intentions. We pray for Jim Fleitz who I dedicate today’s poem to. We pray all things in Christ’s Holy Name. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!
No greater Commandment for humanity to state– Mark 12: 18-32 (GBU Jim F)
They argued over the wife of seven
Who was hers at the resurrection in heaven?
They knew nothing of Scripture to tower ahead
Not knowing the Truth in God’s Eternal Power said
For God is not the God of the unresponsive dead
He is the God of the living who must be fed
By Scripture and living for Truth to be said
He explained they have been frightfully misled
One Scribe overheard the ugly dispute
Asked Jesus a question to quietly refute
What is the First Commandment to prove?
The One and Only God of Power and Truth
Hear O’People of the world to be born
The LORD your God is LORD alone
Loving your God with all your heart and soul
All your strength to give and to secretly hone
The Second Commandment is a love so great
Loving your neighbor as yourself to relate
No greater commandment for humanity to state
As the Scribe pointed out Jesus was correct in His fate
