Living for God takes a discipline you must be committed to for life.

At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

He was amazed at their lack of faith. Mark 6:1-6

Hebrews 12:4-7, 11-15, Psalm 103 & Mark 6:1-6

We awake today in the message of discipline asking us to endure the pain rejoicing in “the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it.” I often wonder where our world would be without discipline to guide us and lead us in faith, hope and love. The resounding choice of free will may cause some to wince in pain for in the discipline they recall the accomplishment of a desired goal in life took patience, planning and purpose allowing our free will to become God’s Will.

Well, just as an athlete uses discipline to win a gold medal in the Olympics you too can use discipline in the surrender God requires to live in His grace. Living for God takes a discipline you must be committed to for life searching for service to accomplish charity in thought, action and deed. You may think we can ‘t place God in everything we do, right? I mean discipline in the LORD is separate- a Sunday kind of thing?

The LORD reminds us to live in Him constantly not attempting to hide in depravity allowing His Word to guide your prayer causing a desire to share, search and succumb to the Gospel of Life to live, laugh and love. You will come to a place in life where your love of God will cause you to be “amazed” at the “lack of faith” in people you meet for in your heart resounds the grace God intends all mankind to encounter and maintain by practice, prayer and preaching. Here lies the discipline our LORD asks of us each day. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to use discipline to live in Your Will. Praying for the Emmaus Team of South Carolina and Harvard IL. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop’s healing. LORD, allow me to say I’m sorry quickly as needed. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

Discipline for holiness your everyday aim– Hebrews 12:4-7

 

Sin in struggle meets His face

Nothing lived in blood’s disgrace

Never shedding anger to constantly pace

Forgotten the exhortation of His grace

 

No disdain in the LORD’s discipline

Acknowledged sons He scourges from sin

Never losing heart when reproved by Him

The LORD loves Who He disciplines to win

 

Trials are endured as discipline of fate

Being treating as a son is how God relates

When occurring discipline seems like hate

No cause for joy only disdain for pain’s mate

 

Time allows the discipline its reward

The fruit of righteousness to those who adore

Drooping hands and weak knees must implore

The straight paths of your feet once lame to shore

 

Peace we must strive in every lane

Discipline for holiness your everyday aim

Not deprived of God’s grace to obtain

Bitter roots become defiled in sin’s ugly shame

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
