Wig’s Word of God Today 1-24-2011
Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment, so also Christ, offered once to take away the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to bring Salvation to those who eagerly await Him. Hebrews 9:27-28
Hebrews 9:15, 24-28, Psalm 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6 & Mark 3:22-30
There are many times in my life I look back and remember encouraging smiles, graceful forgiveness and life-lasting memories from my Grandmother Mildred Carter. We weren’t afforded the opportunity to nurse her back from a sickness because she died in church pew from a heart attack on a Sunday night. Likewise, her husband and my grandfather Colen Carter died suddenly when my mother was only seven years old (I think). We as human beings only die once but we must be ready at any time when that day will come. I have been experiencing friends getting sick lately and I remind them God has a plan for them.
While the experience of life-changing medical conditions can alter one’s mood and heart, it is this exact time I remind people to call on the Lord in prayer through fasting, group community prayer and service projects. Pray with family and friends alike day in and day out waking up in the LORD reading His Word and going to sleep with Him each day. God has in store for us amazing peace for all eternity by our acceptance of His Truth. Talk to God and He’ll talk back to you. Keep Him in your heart and share Him with your soul. His love is unstoppable. Embrace Him often in praise. Seek Him in the stillness of your heart beat. Loving your love of Christ requires faith, hope, charity and love and perseverant living as James wrote in Chapter One; “Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4
And so we pray: Dear Lord, we pray for all people lost in sickness that they may gain perseverance from Your love. Keep us undivided steadfast in Your love. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
