Light of God’s Spirit illuminates your surrender to charity in loving thy neighbor as thy self.
The church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria was at peace. It was being built up and walked in the fear of the LORD, and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit it grew in numbers. Acts 9:31
It is the Spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail. The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and life. Jesus then said to the Twelve, “Do you also want to leave?” Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of Eternal Life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.” John 6:63, 67-69
Acts 9:31-42, Psalm 116 & John 6:60-69
Are you convinced Jesus is “the Holy One of God?” Imagine if you will being the tyrant seeking death upon others because they believe God sent His Only Son amongst them to take upon His Body the torment for sins forgiven by a Redemptive Resurrection granted only once. Taken to the ground and blinded by the Light of Christ, Saul who would soon be living the life of Saint Paul becoming convinced to overcome the blindness he led in persecuting the early Christians transitioning from foe to friend regaining his sight from the Light of Truth preaching so strong in Damascus the Jews conspired to kill him before he was lowered in a basket out a window to escape traveling to Jerusalem.
There he began his Apostleship with the help of Barnabas for all the Apostles were afraid of him. “When he arrived in Jerusalem he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he was a disciple.” Acts 9:26 Maybe you feel like Saul today for in the resistance you feel around you is now making you become even stronger in Christ never fearing when we speak “out boldly in the name of the LORD.” Saul accepted the Spirit of God to overcome his desires of the flesh seeking not the will of a loin lanced with a coin but the Will of God Divine speaking the Truth every time.
Each of us must find our life in Christ amongst the confused being a beacon as Saul became for the Light of God’s Spirit illuminates your surrender to charity in loving thy neighbor as thy self. You see the desire of God’s love radiating from the eyes of the lost, lonely and languished labeled as “mental” or “worthless” obviously living in Truth by life’s complicated decisions of sin when you travel your days across any town in the world. They crave the message of Truth just as the people of Christ’s time who witnessed in seeing His miracles of faith, hope and love embracing charity to guide them all to Eternal Life.
Many times I come across these human souls in my travels extending a hand or a smile with soothing sounds of Christ’s hope. Yesterday, I was struck by one as our eyes met seeing the desperation of sincerity. “I am hungry, I am Dirty, I am in need” was the Spirit driven thought I felt in the Life of a Child of God. While speaking to and praying over a man who kept saying, “I want to do better,” I shared a KFC meal with him that included all the fixings learning he craved a long hot shower and a soft bed we take for granted each day. Let us reach out and share the love of Christ in the people we sight by the eyes of His Light. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to mimic the liar turned Friar living convinced Jesus is the Holy One of You LORD. Praying for the soul of David Generozzo whose shared silently a dear spirit of dignity I’ll always remember with love. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Praying for Ralph in NJ. LORD from Psalm 2:11 I chant- “Serve the LORD with fear; exult with trembling, Accept correction lest He become angry and you perish along the way when His anger suddenly blazes up. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
The Death overcome by Christ no one had Smelt– Acts 9:31-42
Peace was in Peter’s good deeds time
The Church began to lovingly align
Judea, Galilee and Samaria were fine
Growing in number by the Spirit Divine
Every region Peter’s proclamation did pass
Holy Ones in Lydda he assuredly grasped
Healing a man named Aeneas as a matter of fact
In the Name of Christ making his bed really fast
Dorcas translated by Tabitha’s past
In Joppa her almsgiving would always last
Then her good deeds came to a crash
Becoming sick soon returning to ash?
Two men were sent to ask Peter’s help
Upstairs amongst widows wailing he felt
The demise of Tabitha lying asleep as they knelt
Sending them out he prayed in Jesus to eternally melt
The Death overcome by Christ no one had Smelt
