As obedient children, be yourselves holy in all your activity, after the model of the Holy One who calls us, since Scripture says, ‘Be holy, for I am Holy. 1st Peter 1:15-16

 

Many who are first will be last, and the last, first. Mark 10:31

 

First Peter 1:10-16, Psalm 98 & Mark 10:28-31

 

It’s hard not to be obedient when you study the Bible every day looking for God’s Word to direct your every step- your every thought to accomplish His Will. I agree we are all sinners but I also agree that the LORD’s Word directs us to be Holy as stated in 1 Peter 1:15-16. “As obedient children, be yourselves holy in all your activity, after the model of the Holy One who calls us, since Scripture says, ‘Be holy, for I am Holy.”

 

I can recall with vivid memories of embarrassment of not seeking the LORD’s Will but looking to accomplish what my selfish pleasures of sin would induce me to achieve. When I learned how to be obedient, I learned to live in God’s grace every step of the way and I look to share His Grace with anyone, anytime and anywhere. My stance on the issues have swung to Biblical understandings where I seek not to “vote” or “align” with anyone who does not follow the Word of God to the letter. If you have any questions, read your Bible and let God direct your allegiance to His Truth. Amen.

 

Some 20 years ago, I began the process of becoming Baptized entering the joys of knowing God in my life as I worked to overcome the struggles of everyday sin. While I didn’t surrender completely that day, I did encounter the first will be last statement often as I approached the Baptismal waters for people kept saying “many who are first will be last, and the last, first” because I was the last in line to become Baptized. From that day on, it has never bothered me that I was last in anything for I knew God would instill the right to be first by my commitment to His Word.

 

Dear God, we pray to always be obedient to Your Word. We pray to live in a state of holiness for Your Purpose. We pray for strength to accomplish Your Will in all we do. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

Be holy for I am Holy and kind- First Peter 1:10-16

 

Your Salvation is near

Prophets attested so dear

To the sufferings of Christ to seer

His Glory accomplished so clear

 

They served not themselves to gloat

They preached the Good News to doat

The Holy Spirit kept them afloat

The things angels longed to look at He spoke

 

Gird your loins of your mind

Live soberly to find the time

The revelation of Jesus to find

Be holy for I am Holy and kind

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
