Wig’s Word of God Today 2-22-2013
Enjoy today’s study in a podcast at www.cruz-wiggins.com
Exulting Christ’s own statement to the Rock the Church was built on.
Tend the flock of God in your midst, [overseeing] not by constraint but willingly, as God would have it, not for shameful profit but eagerly. First Peter 5:2
I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven. Matthew 16:19
First Peter 5:1-4, Psalm 23 & Matthew 16:13-19
I awake today in chills fighting the flu without question derived from the broods amongst me as a Teacher of His Children I give my life to. I “willingly, as God would have it, not for shameful profit but eagerly” share living in Truth with adult and child alike allowing His Purpose to drive my every desire. Even in the shadows of coughing, chills and choices I must obey His Will writing through His called expectation to practice, pray and proclaim.
I am as sure about this as the day is long that you must Practice the Three P’s of Christ to “tend the flock of God in your midst, [overseeing] not by constraint but willingly, as God would have it!” Now we see even 2000 years later “the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven” are offered to you by this surrender taking on obedience to His Divine Will in meditation, inspiration and reflection living for His Truth and His Truth alone. We must give our all to God as God gives His all to us.
I celebrate my joy in Christ in the most amazing universal church in the world by the keys given to him for Heaven by Christ Himself leading to exulting Christ’s own statement to the Rock the Church was built on, “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven.”
He gave an authority that has risen and fallen by selfish acts of flesh and greed but continues to grow in the hearts of billions by the love of living His Truth craving His Body and Blood as our soul’s needed nourishment to practice, pray and preach to live His forgiveness. Here in brevity I write to share this ability in each of us to know God’s love by His Son’s Gospel is as easy as one “P” (practice), two “P” ( pray) and three “P” (preach). Celebrate all in Christ by the joy these daily second-by-second choices bring to your heart’s desire in life as the Church surrounds you with the Foundation of Truth in His Word. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today we can tend the flock with choices based on Your Word. Praying for Team Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Constant prayers for Greg Bishop. One week to go Marco, prayers for you. LORD, guide our love. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
To you must be examples for His flock– First Peter 5:1-4
Presbyters listen to his exhort
Fellow presbyter at heart
Sufferings of Christ witness
Sharing in the glory revealed to start
The flock must be eagerly tended
In your midst willingly serving to agree
In constraint overseeing as God would have it
No shame or eager profit to steal your soul’s eternity
Lord not over those assigned
To you must be examples for His flock
Revealed when Chief Shepherd arrives
Unfading glory crowned for you
Assigned by Christ as the Rock
