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,

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

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
