Wig’s Word of God Today 11-19-2012
For God knows the faithful who win! Amen.
I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first. Rev. 2:4-5b
Revelation 1:1-4; 2:1-5, Psalm 1 & Luke 18:35-43
The life of a Christian has its ups and downs but is promised something more than any other thing or possession we could fathom across the centuries of time; Eternal Life. The race is not how fast we can get to the finish line but how strong we can endure the trials and tribulations of life while we share the Way to Sin’s Forgiveness and Truth to live accepting faith, charity and love as the Divine Hope we seek in every instance our lives portray.
As I hung out with Mark, my oldest friend in the world, his 12-year-old son Austin and my 13-year-old son Jeffrey-Steven this past weekend, I shared with them the Walk God has instilled in my heart for the Truth His Son shared with humanity some 2000 years ago. I repeated the words “God Bless You” often as I engaged fans of a Gator Game along University Avenue, Veterans in and out of uniform as well as a man holding a sign that stated “Jesus Loves You.”
This love of Christ that directed my heart so much that I repent daily calling out to God in forgiveness, faith and favor to accomplish the Works he asks us all to do. I took them all into my place of Baptism of Saint Augustine kneeling in prayer along the front pew praying in thanksgiving aloud to encourage their trust in Him. The young man asked why I blessed myself with the water at the entrance taking mental notes he shared with me later.
The world around us has fallen so deep it appears we are lowering a rope of Salvation that is too short seemingly never reaching the bottom of a pit of secular hell. I for one do not believe this because the Rope of Salvation is Everlasting working as a tether to Truth no one can deny but many have turned their back on for as long as people have walked the earth. I remind us today that when we have “fallen,” we should get in repentance seeking to accomplish the Works Christ instills in each of our hearts. Amen.
Let us pray: Dear God, we pray today to pick ourselves up when we fall sharing the works of Truth repenting aloud seeking favor, fortitude and forgiveness. We pray a prayer of thanksgiving for my car’s alternator not dying until I drove into the driveway from a five-hour trip from Gainesville. A special birthday prayer for my mom Betty Jean Carter Wiggins Pitts. Happy Birthday! We pray in Christ’s Risen Name indeed. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
Philippians 4:4-7 Romans 8:28
Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!
For God knows the faithful who win! Amen. – Psalm 1
Walk not in wicked counsel
Blessing comes His Way
Minus sinners and scoffers
With God you should start your day
The LORD is the joy
His Law we learn to pray
A meditation of Truth
Sleeping soundly as we lay
Waters running to your roots
Planted near the stream of life
Fruits of due season
Prospers by the grace of His Light
Not so for the wicked
Floating as chaff of sinful lust
Judgment will be God’s
Arising not in the assembly of the just
For the LORD knows which way to begin
The just seeks not the ugliness of sin
The wicked way always leads to ruin
For God knows the faithful who win amen
