Wig’s Word of God Today 2-5-2012
To the weak I became weak, to win over the weak. I have become all things to all, to save at least some. 1 Corinthians 9:22
Job 7:1-4, 6-7, Psalm 147, 1 Corinthians 9:16-23 & Mark 1:29-39
In his walk across miles and miles of land encountering all types of people, Paul describes to us his journey for the sake of the Gospel to share what he himself knows he has a part of. He becomes like everyone he encounters to express, explain and encourage the Truth God instilled in his heart to save the souls of the lost and confused.
To become a slave to any for the Gospel of all to be enjoyed by all to live in faith, hope and love. We must assume these rolls in present time to share the ultimate gift God has ever given to us: Salvation. We must learn to dress down when we need to dress down and dress up when we need to dress up. “All this I do for the sake of the Gospel, so that I too may have a share in It.” 1 Corinthians 9:23
The more “Trunk of Comfort” visits the homeless camps around Miami, the more I find myself dressing down like them to help them know God’s Word. I offer them a Bible as we chat sorting clothes in my trunk to freshen their appearance. I lift my hands over them and pray aloud before grasping their hands and praying in their ears to give them comfort, confidence and Christ.
I think sometimes people have a fright of the homeless because they appear to be naked in the eyes of mortals but appear as Christ in the eyes of people unafraid for the sake of the Gospel. You must learn to dress down and become like them to live His Truth and become a portal of Christ’s Redemption. Unafraid of them as they are unafraid of you. Mother Theresa once said if she died in her work of charity she would meet Jesus anyway by the work she does for Him. In our lives we become all things to all for the Gospel’s healing of humanity. Amen.
We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to become like those we seek to share on the Gospel Your Son instilled in the heart of Humanity. We are praying for a homeless man named Jim who wants a job to return to a soft bed. We are praying for the soon to be released film “October Baby” to educate the world about abortion. We pray for “40 Days of Life” to close abortion clinics. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for our spouses, children, family, friends, and the unknown Christ-like people we pray with every day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
For the Sake of the Gospel I become like them- 1 Corinthians 9:16-23
If there is preaching
There is nothing I boast
If there is teaching
An obligation I love the most
His Truth has been imposed on me
Look into their eyes Christ of to be
Willingly for recompense of Eternity
Not stewardship done unwillingly
The Gospel is preached free of charge
Not to make full use of the Gospel by large
To the freedom I feel in my walk of faith
A slave to all void of ugliness and hate
My work is to win over souls to find
The Gospel by their level to mind
If weak I am weak in kind for all kind
For the sake I share in the Gospel’s end time
