Wig’s Word of God Today 2-16-2012
Listen, my dear brothers: it was those who were poor according to the world that God chose, to be rich in faith and to be the heirs to the Kingdom which He promised to those who love Him. James 2:5
James 2:1-9, Psalm 34 & Mark 8:27-33
I have to admit I was pretty scared when it came to visiting the homeless, poor and hungry as I began my surrender to a life in Christ. There used to be a point in my life that I would look down on people who were failures in the eyes of the society. I used to ask myself, “Why do these people choose to live alone amongst the elements instead of fulfilling the dream most Americans have?” God instilled in me the courage to fulfill His Commands by daily practice, prayer and preaching to embrace the lost as His child of destiny.
I remember distinctly the first time I hugged a homeless man and he whispered in my ear, “this is the first time anyone has held me in years,” that I knew God was talking to me as tears of Christ joy ran down my cheeks. Mother Theresa heard the poor man say, “I am thirsty,” and she equated this to God telling her to do more for the poor and needy of the world. I personally lived a homeless life finding not despair in my heart but a purpose to live for His Glory. What you find in me writing to God in brevity is courage to do more for His Truth. Share your love of loving Christ Jesus. Amen.
“I will praise Yahweh from my heart; let the humble hear and rejoice. Proclaim with me the greatness of Yahweh, let us acclaim His Name together. I seek Yahweh and He answers me, frees me from all my fears. Fix your gaze on Yahweh and your face will grow bright, you will never hang your head in shame.” Psalm 34:2-5
We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to seek out the poor and share with them the Good News Your Son brought to the world.. We continue our Novena of prayers for Robert M. in NJ. We pray for “40 Days of Life” to close abortion clinics. We pray for the Emmaus Team in NJ. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for our spouses, children, family, friends, and the unknown Christ-like people we pray with every day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
His Promised House for those who love His decrees- James 2:1-9
There is no distinction in faith
All are afforded God’s Space
Jesus Christ is for all to taste
Not just the rich but poor to face
Two different types arrive at the door
One rich and one obviously poor
Do not make a distinction of the two
God is for each as He is for me and you
God gave His grace to the poor in spirit to see
The heirs to His Kingdom He named in thee
His Promised House for those who love His decrees
A faithful place for the poor to eternally conceive
