Memorial of sacrifice and praise for Truth’s Freedom.
To the penitent he provides a way back and encourages those who are losing hope! Turn back to the LORD and give up your sins, pray before Him and make your offenses few. Sirach 17:24-25
Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have treasure in Heaven; then come, follow Me.” At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. Jesus looked around and said to His Disciples, “How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the Kingdom of God!” Mark 10:21-23
Sirach 17:19-27, Psalm 32 & Mark 10:17-27
The joy of giving up sin allows a constant desire to encourage those who are losing confidence the opportunity to know hope by forgiveness living an exampled life in prayer preaching the Gospel helping those who earnestly desire to “give up” their sins praying on their knees to the God of Truth. We find this everyday even in the midst of people unknown the deep-down desire to know God-to trust God- to live for God in Truth but are pulled by sin’s instant gratification. As a child, you were encouraged by a parent who nurtured you in love trusting with expression the ability to live would never come into question. We feed them and bathe them talk to them nurturing them to the point of letting go- then life becomes our own challenge to survive in the midst of instant glorification of self aching for a sense of communion with God- with His Truth.
I know we all crave for this faith, hope and love to be ever constant in our lives only learning after we let go of everything giving anything you have in the Name of Charity does God give you everything you need and more to accomplish Charity’s Confidence acknowledging Prayer’s Persistence giving Love’s Longing for Legitimacy to live according to His Love and His Love alone. Once we admit we are a sinner and become a penitent, we admit sin is a part of our nature returning to God through Christ asking for forgiveness over-and-over again realizing God knows you will make mistakes- He just asks us to admit them and keep living for Him “and make your offenses few.” The feelings of “lacking one thing” for Christ employs us to repent constantly hoping I share the surrender making clear the obedience required to give your all to God.
Letting go of everything is just the start of finding more in giving where charity isn’t a five letter word of money but the four letter word of love. It’s a selfless love similar to a military person giving their life for their country’s freedom. It’s this Memorial of sacrifice and praise for Truth’s Freedom does the love of serving create heroes of faith, hope and love who are willing to die for their cause of Freedom. We are United here in the States of America because we believe serving creates the willingness to die for freedom’s call. This call to Truth He asks us all in giving up the excess of life and serving to do more in the Name of Charity’s Freedom- Jesus Christ! Amen!
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to make our offenses few willing to give up everything for Your Truth. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 131:2 I chant- “I have stilled my soul, Like a weaned child to its mother, weaned is my soul.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Return to Him the Penitent at Work– Sirach 17:19-27
When we accept He forgives
The way back He allows us to live
Encouraging hope where sin gives
Death is overcome by He Who Is
In Him you return to in hope
Giving up sin to secretly cope
Offenses are few praying to provoke
As the Most High gave and fervently spoke
With hate for sin you’ll surely win
God’s love as He judges humanity’s sin
Firmly standing ready to begin
Prayer every moment of living His grin
Can the Nether World produce God’s glory?
The living abide in faith to tell His story
Praise and worship will never be boring
Error in judgment if your ungodly storing
Treasures lived on earth
Dust-to-dust ashes to dirt
Dead gives no praise to flirt
Mercies forgiving sorrow and hurt
Return to Him the Penitent at Work
