Wig’s Word of God Today 4-18-2012
Everybody who does wrong hates the Light and avoids it, to prevent his actions from being shown up; but whoever does the Truth comes out into the Light, so that what he is doing may plainly appear as done in God. John 3:20-21
Acts 5:17-26, Psalm 34 & John 3:16-21
Did you ever wonder what the sign meant that a fan holds up at a football game in the middle of the goal posts that says “John 3:16?” As a child growing up, I would often wonder what these simple letters and numbers relayed but I never had the notion to look it up because I was filled with selfish thoughts and lacked spiritual guidance as a kid. One day my mother’s mom explained John 3:16 to me and gave me a task: Learn the LORD’s prayer and I’d get $5. Here I was at the age 12, lanky and vulgar, already smoking in the dark yet determined I wouldn’t let her down.
The “Our Father” has been a special prayer ever since but it still took years to understand John 3:16 and God’s Word to guide my life by. I was determined as a child to stay hidden in the dark trying anything anyone would place in front of me seeking only the affection from as many girls as I could. While my grandmother gave it her best shot to guide me to understand Christ’s Stand for me, I preferred to linger in the darkness of sin and excess chasing away the memories of a mental and physically abusive alcoholic father.
Our lives are centered around making choices of living in the dark or fulfilling God’s Will in His Light of Truth. You may think nobody notices but believe me they do. Please believe people will wonder why you seem to keep to yourself instead of sharing God’s amazing miracles of transformation from being a child in the dark to a Child of God in His Light of Salvation.
There is nothing to hide from when you display His Truth in everything you do and allow the Light of Salvation to guide your life to display an understanding of John 3:16 by faith, hope/charity and love. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have Eternal Life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” John 3:16-17 Do you feel saved by knowing and living for His Truth?
Dear Light of the world, we pray to live in Your Light of Truth by our desire to share Your faith, hope and love with the world. We seek Your guidance LORD in practice, prayer and deed. We pray LORD all petitions are gathered to make the ballot. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”
Live in His Truth’s Light to always be Right- John 3:16-21
His love of the world was shown
In His Son Who came to be known
As the Savior from sin and hate
His love transformed the world to relate
Everyone is given the chance
To surrender to His Truth and advance
To Eternal Living in the Light
Where Heaven becomes your right
There was nothing He condemned in the world
For God sent Him to save us from hell
No surrender gives you His verdict
Condemned by God’s love so Perfect
Believe in His Holy Precious Name
Find His Light in every possible thing
Stay out of darkness to Eternally gain
The Light of Truth to avoid evil’s blame
Anyone who does wicked hates the Light
Not coming toward It always in a fight
To try and cover his works of spite
Live in His Truth’s Light to always be Right
