Do you lust day-after-day in spiritual nothingness? “I will follow you, LORD, but first let me say farewell to my family at home. [To him] Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.” Luke 9:61-62

Do you lust day-after-day in spiritual nothingness?

I will follow you, LORD, but first let me say farewell to my family at home. [To him] Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.” Luke 9:61-62

Job 9:1-12, 14-16, Psalm 88 & Luke 9:57-62

Jesus explains to us today that being a Disciple is a tough job that requires denial of even family and friends to live for the Glory of God Himself. We cannot be distracted by day-to-day musings to live in a total surrender to God’s Purpose for our lives. We all know how difficult this can be but as Jesus reminds us, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.” I think it’s obvious that claiming Christ as your LORD and Savior eliminates the need to look back at the life you led prior to finding the Truth in your life.

You begin to see and live spiritually allowing people to be drawn to you instilling in them the Salvation Christ offers the world by His Death on a Cross. A Cross you must pick up and display proudly as a banner of Truth. People will be afraid of Christ’s Cross parting families, friends and coworkers aligning with the statement, “Let the dead bury the dead.” When you look back at a life of selfishness and sin, you will see the spiritually dead burying the ones like them who do not follow the Truth of Christ in their heart. They are worried they’ll miss out on something they lust for day-after-day in spiritual nothingness. Amen.

Let us pray: Dear LORD, we pray today to look forward as true Disciples not looking over our shoulder in want or despair. I pray for a Happy Birthday to my daughter Dr. Alexandra Maria Wiggins Stern. LORD, we pray today for sick and dying. We pray for our friends and enemies. We pray people choose You over stature or sin. We pray for strength, patience and health to fast in Your Will LORD. Give us Your strong arm of love forever. Jesus Christ is Risen! We pray in His Precious Name indeed. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!

 

Looking back voids your Kingdom turn– Luke 9:57-62

 

Jesus heard a man say

I’ll follow you each day

Foxes have dens to pray

Son of Man has nowhere to lay

 

Jesus said follow Me

First I have to bury my family

Let the dead bury the dead mindfully

For the spiritually dead is wastefully

 

Proclaim the Kingdom of God to tell

As one yells out I must say farewell

The plow of surrender can’t be returned

Looking back voids your Kingdom turn

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
