Attend to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in both tasks, for by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you. 1 Timothy 4:16

Attend to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in both tasks, for by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

1 Timothy 4:16

1 Timothy 4:12-16, Psalm 111 & Luke 2:33-35

The day has finally come after weeks of meetings, prayers and fasting. We meet the men we have been called to minister to in a maximum-security prison. I find myself reflecting on Paul’s message to Timothy to persevere in taking care of you for the Glory of God but as importantly to persevere for those who allow me an opportunity to help in embracing the Word of God. There are so many different types of efforts to accomplish this no matter where you are or what you are doing; there are people who will need your zeal for God’s Mercy.

Last night I felt this from my wife as I stood next to a McDonald’s talking to the Commander of my Disabled American Veteran’s Group. As we talked about my pending voluntary lock-up, he reflected on a story of helping a Veteran in prison who needed help acquiring his medications for a military related illness. As we stood there, two females began shouting at each other and then began punching one another just behind our car up against the McDonald’s building. My wife who was sitting in the car next to us with an open window turned and said something like “come on girls, God doesn’t want us to fight with one another.” People who are empowered by the LORD’s Truth speak up more to share Christ’s love with confidence and joy. My wife is am amazing woman in Christ who loves the LORD. Her passion for His Truth empowers me to Trust God even more.

So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to always persevere and share the Truth with anyone who will listen. We pray today for our Kairos Prison Ministry Team who begins our ministry weekend today. We continue our prayers for the NJ/Philadelphia Emmaus Team Leader Tom Stilley who is searching for candidates to share the Walk to Emmaus. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray for the people known and unknown who will one day learn of God’s Truth by our perseverance. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Be Diligent in Godly Matters

Be His example

Waiver not in Truth

Guided by the Light

Purity in your youth

Believers seek faith

Proper conduct lived

Love for your neighbor

God’s Word to give

Neglect not God’s gift

In Word or speaking too

Be diligent in Godly matters

For those who listen to you

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
