Wig’s Word of God Today 1-24-2013
Approach Christ to be forgiven and seek patience, persistence and peace.
Jesus is always able to Save those who approach God through Him, since He lives forever to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25
Whenever unclean spirits saw Him they would fall down before Him and shout, “You are the Son of God.” Mark 3:11
Hebrews 7:25–8:6, Psalm 40 & Mark 3:7-12
The surrender takes time for some and for others it happens in the flash of second as we approach Christ to give up the ways of sin and seek patience, persistence and peace in life to live for God’s Commands and not our own self-centered desires. It will never be easy in our defined frailty but always centered on faith in Christ’s Divine appointment and not that of the law of men living in weakness but the Creator of Life Who lives in Mighty and Eternal. “For the law appoints men subject to weakness to be high priests, but the Word of the Oath, which was taken after the law, appoints a Son, Who has been made Perfect Forever.”
Many a man and woman will desire persistence to guide them as the secular world throws more and more flesh in their faces stroking their egos allowing Satan to steal their soul. Without persistence of living for Christ and making a choice with your thoughts, actions and deeds to give your all to His Way you will become filled with “me” desires instead of breathing for the Truth found only in faith, hope and love of God’s charity. Here we find a peace unsurpassed in the entire world where we dare to ask strangers to pray with us to find Christ’s charity in the love of living for Him.
Yesterday, I was reminded of this when I had lunch in local fast-food place- not the “Golden Arches” but the “Freckled Faced Wendy” place whose Pretzel Roll seemed inviting. As I waited in line to order I noticed about six elderly ladies ordering their lunch too and we all sat down near one another. I calmly spoke up and said, “Ladies, since we haven’t begun to eat yet, would you care to join me in prayer before our meal?” “Oh yes,” came the reply of one of them as I stood up to stand next to their table exclaiming “Praise God.”
Finishing the prayer I sat back down and conversed with them for a while exchanging dialogue about a God and Son we live our lives for. They invited me back next Wednesday for some lunch-time fellowship which I do look forward to. God can place you in places of to be His charity of faith, hope and love by living in each moment for God’s Truth where we live in patience, persistence and peace of God’s Divine Will. Will you share a prayer with a stranger today? By God He asks us to. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear Father above, we pray today to always approach You by Your Son Jesus Christ. We continue praying for the Emmaus candidates of this past weekend and its team members. We pray they are experiencing the Word of God without prejudice or bother. Praying for the Emmaus Team of South Carolina. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop’s healing. LORD, thank You for life. In Jesus Name we Eternally pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Appoints a Son Who is Perfect forever to call– Hebrews 7:25–8:6
We approach God through Jesus who saves
If we approach Him and behave
Not acting as a foolish old slave
His Word we shall practice to rave
Since He is a forever intersession for them
Not the binding laws of foolish old men
A fitting High Priest separated from sin
Undefiled, innocent and Holy just to begin
Higher than the heavens he shall eternally Swim
Not needing a day-to-day sacrifice to trim
Such as the high priests own sins of whim
Offered Himself once and for all to win
The appointment of Son by the Father of all
Not subject to weakness as the men who like to brawl
The Word of Oath which is taken after the law
Appoints a Son Who is Perfect forever to call
