Children, let no one deceive you. The person who acts in righteousness is righteous, just as he is righteous. First John 3:7

Wig’s Word of God Today 1-4-2013

God calls us to be righteous to establish and maintain a communion with Him.

Children, let no one deceive you. The person who acts in righteousness is righteous, just as he is righteous. First John 3:7

First John 3:7-10, Psalm 98 & John 1:35-42

Today we continue our thoughts on what it means to be righteous. John explains that a habitual sinner is a child of the devil while a Child of God is defined as being in fellowship with God and therefore cannot sin. For years and years I would shy away from people who seemed to have one thing on their mind and that was saying yes to Jesus. I never took the time to understand why being righteous was better than being a sinner. The whole Eternal Life thing didn’t sink in as much as being forgiven of my sins didn’t sink in either. I would rather cross the street than to talk to friends I knew who were going to church but I’d especially lose touch with people who went to weekly Bible study.

These people loved to talk about Christ’s Gospel which of course speaks of love and forgiveness loving thy neighbor as thyself. Oh yeah, I wasn’t loving myself very good so how could I love my neighbor? As God calls us to be righteous to establish and maintain a communion with Him keeping us from sinning as much as it established a desire to share the Good News led by the Spirit’s ignition.  You will no longer cross the street or avoid the Good News but live in God’s Word daily to find His Will more purposeful than that of destroying moral obligations. “In this way, the Children of God and the children of the devil are made plain; no one who fails to act in righteousness belongs to God, nor anyone who does not love his brother.” Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray day 10 of our 12 Days of Christmas giving thanks God commands his faithful to live righteous. Prayer of healing for Greg B. beginning his journey in Texas to be healed. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Carolina prayers for March. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

Romans 8:28

 

No one was left to worry Pharaoh’s nest– Genesis 46 & 47

 

Jacob leaves for Egypt as God contended

His ride with his family was surely splendid

The Pharaohs wagons and all his staff

Jacob turned Israel enjoys his sorrow turned laugh

 

Pharaoh had a visit from Joseph to give

The father’s arrival with brothers he did

The land of Goshen under his majesty’s rein

They may dwell there and tend my cattle the same

 

Another version lays tale to an arrival estranged

Pharaoh tells Joseph his people have came

The Country of Egypt is theirs without blame

Joseph made sure all were treated the same

 

Joseph used his position well

He fought to make Pharaoh’s undeniable wealth

All would give their animals too

Ultimately leaving just land to pursue

 

The famine was great both far and wide

Joseph knew how to handle the foods low tide

He traded their land for seed for crops

His agrarian policy gave Pharaoh the mop

 

To soak up each family’s historical wealth

No one was left to worry Pharaoh’s nest

Joseph had dealt with his kingdom like heaven

His father meanwhile lived to one hundred forty-seven

 

As Israel who was Jacob became old and thin

His son Joseph made sure his promise would be given

Son please take me back to my home and my kin

I want to be buried with my kinfolk’s cemetery den

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
