Wig’s Word of God Today 8-19-2011
Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest? Matthew 22:36
Ruth 1:1-22, Psalm 146 & Matthew 22: 14-40
A scholar of the law amongst the Pharisees questions Jesus to test Him expecting His answer to be contrary to the belief of a majority of the society so they may use His statements against Him when bringing charges against Him according to Roman law. They learn as many who challenge Jesus or God for that matter His Word is the Commandments of God where there is no argument just factual Truth.
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40
In loving the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your mind and all you soul takes a daily moment-by-moment approach to receive His Word in practice and then reflecting on His Word in prayer then repeating His Word in proclamation. I know, it’s hard to proclaim the Good News because many people are shy and timid but when you allow the Spirit of the Most High God to envelope your soul, you will become more outgoing in the LORD’s work and you’ll be astounded how He guides you every step of the way.
I am reminded of Isaiah 41:10, “Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” If you love your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul you find a peace and confidence to live each day in celebration of the LORD’s Truth. Only then will see your neighbor as yourself.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to always love You with all of our heart, mind and soul to live Your Will LORD to carry Your Truth. We pray for peace and healing of Alexandra, Kelly and Alysse. We pray this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Prophet’s Always Did Produce
They may test the LORD
He does not embrace you
He is the Test to subdue
His love is commandment proved
Greatest law above all is seen
As loving the God in Trust pristine
With all your heart, mind and soul
Study His Word for Truth to be told
The second is a mirror of the first
A Commandment of Truth
A neighbor loved as you love
Prophet’s always did produce
