Wig’s Word of God Today 2-17-2013
Enjoy today’s study in a podcast at www.cruz-wiggins.com
Live in today confessing with your mouth God is the only God of your heart.
For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. For the Scripture says, “No one who believes in Him will be put to shame.” Romans 10:10-11
Jesus said to him in reply, “It is written: ‘You shall worship the LORD, your God, and Him alone shall you serve.’” “It also says, ‘You shall not put the LORD, your God, to the test.’” Luke 4:8,12
Deuteronomy 26:4-10, Psalm 91, Romans 10:8-13 & Luke 4:1-13
Indeed my purpose is to share God’s Word in brevity daily following a path walked by Christ contributing the belief in my heart of Eternal Life by a surrender to Him “and Him alone” not expecting a test to be shown for in my heart His grace is sufficient alone. Paul reminds us how not to feel “put to shame” similar to the thoughts I delved as a young man shamefully denying the One and only Way. I recall with such detail the spiteful ways I denied Him through adolescence, annoyance and adulthood not participating in the faith, hope and love of Charity’s Will.
I often pray for the forgiveness of my teenage years where I lived as an annoyance searching for the darkness to avoid Truth’s everlasting wail. I didn’t worship nothin’ or anything as my wife would surely remind me now as I let out my Southern chuckle of my South Georgia cell. Life wasn’t surefooted in Truth but rather the absence of confession from a mouth full of filth. Taught by a drunken Georgia mechanic who I worshipped as the best father a child could smell.
You know? The smell of mom or dad that resonates in your soul’s memory bank when they picked you up as a child and whispered sweet nothings smelling of gold. Today we all seemed so rushed we can’t seem to catch up with today to live for tomorrow. Why I write hopefully less each day to remind us we can live in the moment to find hope for each breath we take. A natural twist of growth in Christ’s Salvation offered advice to live in Him in wonder of charity’s reason absent of strife. Live in today confessing with your mouth God is the only God of your heart where the test has already been won. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to always confess with our mouths and act with our minds to live Christ’s charity of Salvation. Praying for Team Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Constant prayers for Greg Bishop. I’m praying for my prayer partner Marco. LORD, remove our desires to live for You and You alone. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Satan departed for in Christ His Father He will abide– Luke 4:1-13
The Holy Spirit moved Him
Into the desert to find
Temptation from the devil
Forty days God never heard Him whine
By the end of Christ’s prayer desert trek
He was hungry and filled with the Sprit to seek
The Devil had an if the Son of God stepped
Not by bread alone does a stone feed the meek
All the kingdoms of the world
Were shown at His feet
The single instant gone the Devil besieged
Power and glory Yours if you worship me
Jesus gave a reply
You must know the right
Only comes from worshipping
As it is written to love not fight
There is only One God your LORD alone
Let the one without sin cast the first stone
Taking Him up resting Him a top a temple to moan
A test of the angels who will swoop down as shown
They will guard you as it is written turning the tide
Jesus rebuked him saying no test to God can we confide
For it also written to the test we cannot put the LORD to deny
Satan departed for in Christ His Father He will abide
