Wig’s Word of God Today 10-22-2011
The concern of the flesh is hostility toward God; it does not submit to the Law of God, nor can it; and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8:7-8
I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down. Luke 13:8c-9
Romans 8:1-11, Psalm 24 & Luke 13:1-9
A mind controlled by the flesh has a soul controlled by the flesh and life’s purpose has a heart given to Satan. You cannot serve two Masters. Jesus made it very clear: “No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24 I think we’ve all known someone who has lived this hostility towards God. People like you and me. Not pleasing God all the time.
Our surrender complete comes from knowing how to channel His Truth into our very being relishing in a complete submission of His Spirit. The flesh becomes not ignored nor adored seeking only His Will in mind, mouth and motivation. Pleasing God is living His Will learning His Word, laboring in prayer and loving your proclamation to glorify Him voiding the flesh of greed and lust. Sharing Jesus and His Priceless Redemption. Amen!
We have to let go and allow God to use us in His Way for His Purpose actively cultivating the ground around you to become His Fruitful Servant of faith, charity and love. Take time to apply God’s Word as fertilizer to your faith giving way to deed in charity. Give your life a chance to live in forgiveness of lust and flesh. Be driven by giving God the first and last thing you do everyday. Live in a community of faithful friends in Christ and build up His Kingdom around your everyday accomplishments.
Proudly say, “This day is for You LORD.” People will see the strength of His love in your smile. Together we can all smile by living His Truth. Sometimes we do this by serving others on a Friday night instead of serving ourselves. We take time to listen to a prisoner getting ready to go home craving prayer from the outside. He is so hopeful he can live in society again by His Truth. Kairos has given him God’s resources of faith to overcome the desires of flesh. Please offer a prayer of hope for men and women like him to become and example of His Redemption. In His Name I pray. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, we pray today to avoid flesh and please You. We pray by our love of Your Word we can share It with pride and cultivate our life for Your Glory. We pray for children of the world. We pray prayers of peace and healing for the prisoners of our Kairos Ministry. You know their needs LORD. We pray this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

His Cross Redemption We Can Always Relate- Luke 13:6-9
A Poem of the Barren Fig Tree Parable
A fig tree stood all alone
His owner forgot he wasn’t grown
No fruit for three years had been sown
Cut it down no fruit it has known
Exhaust the soil no more he said
While the Gardner stood by nodding His head
Leave it a year more to know
My labor and love I’ll carefully show
His fruit will bear the evidence of faith
Cultivating your life void of hate
Less be cut down by the Judge of fate
His Cross Redemption We Can Always Relate
