Wig’s Word of God Today 1-20-2012
He appointed twelve [whom He also named Apostles] that they might be with Him and He might send them forth to preach. Mark 3:14
1 Samuel 24:3-21, Psalm 57 & Mark 3:13-19
When I read the names of the Twelve Apostles in Mark, I am reminded of the classic Tom Sawyer where Tom is asked to repeat the names of at least two of the Twelve Apostles in chapter two because he had supposedly learned 2000 versus in the Bible. As the parent of a new child in class asks for the names of at least two Apostles, Tom blurts out, “Samson and Goliath,” and runs out of the class embarrassed. There’s nothing like an old classis literature to bring home memories of God’s Will in your life.
If you are reading this at any point in your life, you too are called to be His Apostles of Redemption so the Truth of Christ may bring forth a better world to raise our children. We must be willing to step up and share His faith, hope (charity) and love with anyone, anywhere and anytime. I walked in to a fast food restaurant yesterday to have my usual daily salad when a man nodded and said “Good Day sir” as I went to sit down and eat. As I ate, his back was turned to me the whole time and I thought how pleasant it was to hear him make a warm welcome gesture to me.
When I finished lunch, I began to leave but I was drawn to him to say “God Bless you” before I walked out. After introducing myself to him and saying God Bless you, he asked if he could share something with me. He opened his backpack and said, “My name is James Odom and I just finished writing this last year after working on it all my life, it is a daily devotional I titled, ‘Divinely Guided.’” Well, I almost fell over feeling the joy of Christ’s love. I commented about my daily writings for the LORD and asked if we could pray together. Holding hands we prayed as people stood and stared. I pray we all can have these God-instances more often and fulfill Christ’s request to become Disciples of His Truth. Amen.
We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to always be Apostles of Your Son’s Truth. We say a prayer of thanksgiving for James Odom. We begin our prayers for the NJ Emmaus Team and future unknown candidates of their June Emmaus Retreat. We pray for Pam Bishop. We pray for LIFE FM. I pray for my wife, children, family, and friends. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Twelve Apostles of God’s Worldwide Truth to Stay- Mark 3:13-19
Jesus went to the mountain
Summoned the original Twelve
Appointing them Apostles
Go and Preach Redemption from hell
Demons you have authority over
Preach the Truth to tell
Simon named Peter
The last was Judas who fell
James and his brother John
There are many more to say
Sons of Thunder He exclaimed
Andrew, Phillip, Bartholomew to pray
Matthew, Thomas and James number two
Thaddeus and Simon of Cananean
They were all the beginning
Twelve Apostles of God’s Worldwide Truth to Stay
