Wigs Word of God Today Universal Utterings for 10-17-2013
What occasion is there then for boasting? It is ruled out. On what principle, that of works? No, rather on the principle of faith. For we consider that a person is justified by faith apart from works of the law. Does God belong to Jews alone? Does he not belong to Gentiles, too? Yes, also to Gentiles. Romans 3:27-29
Woe to you! You build the memorials of the prophets whom your ancestors killed. Consequently, you bear witness and give consent to the deeds of your ancestors, for they killed them and you do the building. Luke 11:47-48
Romans 3:21-29, Psalm 32 & Luke 11:47-54
Yesterday in Romans 2 Paul seemed to be double talking asking the Romans to preach the Gospel that Jews should hear first then the Greeks and Gentiles before ending with, “There is no partiality with God.” Today Paul continues this message I believe making the situation seem more clear for anyone asking the question, “isn’t that preferential treatment?” In my heart Jesus was explaining through Paul that the Mosaic Law of the past has now been circumvented by the Blood of the Lamb allowing freedom for all while making sure Jews first and foremost are aware of this need not creating a double standard. In today’s world we hear the younger generation announcing the Old Testament i.e. the Word of God has no comparison to what we experience today in our generation.
What we must continue to do as preachers of God’s Word is to relate every message ever given prior to Christ’s arrival the announcements of Jesus as the Savior of the world. As Children of God living His humanity we will continue to need God to talk to us not understanding God is talking to us through all miracles occurring around us in any point of time or moment. It seems a miracle to me that we can talk in an instant to someone on the other side of the world while it seems sad to me that families allow secular ideas to stop communication in the same city or state. Are we boasting by works or by faith? Justify the life we lead by the Light we lend to the lost and lonely livers of love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we boast in our faith by the works of our hands for You LORD. Novena day four for Sean. Novena prayers day six to keep Catholic the nursing home of Poppy Don Juan Cruz dear father-in-law of Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our prayers often each day. LORD from Psalm 32:5-6a, I chant, “Then I declared my sin to You; my guilt I did not hide. I said, “I confess my transgression to the LORD,” and You took away the guilt of my sin. Selah! (Praise God!) Therefore every loyal person should pray to You (LORD) in time of distress.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am surrendered in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Jew not alone God for all He makes– Romans 3:21-29
No distinction complete
Nothing mankind can reap
Faith is the works we keep
Nothing to boast always unique
Christ Jesus leads our Way
Sin distinguished not the day
We lead by His Grace to pray
Live righteousness by faith to say
Works alone are not enough
Faith in principle His trust
Justified law works of faith
Jew not alone God for all He makes
