But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first

Wig’s Word of God Today 3-1-2011

Give to the Most High as he has given to you, generously, according to your means. Sirach 35:9

Peter began to say to him, “We have given up everything and followed you.”  Mark 10:28

But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first.” Mark 10:31

Sirach 35:1-12, Psalm 50:5-6, 7-8, 14 and 23 & Mark 10:28-31

There is a joy in giving that resounds in the soul of every loving human bringing forth pleasing grace’s from our LORD. The LORD our God repays goodness with graces abundantly and seeks to teach humanity His loving ways of faith, charity and love. I read a story of a man who began walking across America in search of himself but realizing once he was out there that God wanted to use him to share graces of His Word by giving out Bibles to whoever the Spirit leads him. The reactions he received from a majority of the public were spite and disgust for he himself seemed to be homeless instead of a man who was on a mission for God. Thanks Ruthie for sharing!

There is many a soul wondering the streets of the world who are there because they want to be closer to God in a way we can’t understand. They are sleeping in bushes and ditches allowing the humility of homelessness grace their being in such a way that there’s only one way to know or understand what they feel is by actually experiencing living on the streets first hand. The Disciples gave up everything to follow Jesus to become a wondering homeless preacher of His Truth. They wondered around in the streets embracing the elements of the Father in loving their love of Christ by being last for they knew in their hearts they would be first through the gates of heaven.

There was a time when I embraced being homeless as a lesson from God to know the Angels of the world who lived a life of shelter less exsistance but who embraced the nature as a gift from God. I hugged, gave my last dime and spoke to many a homeless person then ranging in age from 15 to 75 who were seeking obscurity from the sin of the world as I recalled the same Scripture passage I read last night that brought tears to my eyes for I had lived and witnessed what the LORD is doing to the homeless of the world. My tears were joyous tears filed with the Spirit of God embracing Matthew 25:34-36. “Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”

So we ask in prayer: Heavenly Father, we pray today for the homeless of the world. May they embrace Your Son’s Truth in living a life of obscurity. We pray today people see the eyes of Christ in the hungry, the thirsty and the imprisoned. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,

Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”

The Eyes of Christ in Your Face

Live the Law of the LORD
Living in charity and love
His grace will guide you
To Heaven’s Gates above

Give to the LORD all you can afford
Ten percent is only the base
Our LORD will repay you
Knowing His love living His fate

Be cheerful with each giving moment
Embrace the need humanity seeks
Our loving Father will forever notice
The little ones you embrace in the streets

Give up this life to follow Him
The Gospel seeks your faith
Sharing the Truth to Humanity
The eyes of Christ in your face

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
