For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery

Wig’s Word of God Today 10-11-2010

For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Galatians 4:22-24, 26-27, 31–5:1, Psalm 113:1b-2, 3-4, 5a and 6-7 & Luke 11:29-32

There is a freedom in my heart I feel each and moment I am awake. A freedom from slavery to life’s problems where the Armor of God protects me from all harm. It is a freedom I celebrate with family, friends and colleagues alike allowing me the opportunity to talk about a personal relationship with Christ Jesus. There was a time I was wrapped up in things Satan caused me to do. His feel good medicine did nothing more than keep me away from Christ not allowing me to accomplish a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior. Remember, we are who we surround ourselves with. Live in addictions of sex, money and drugs and your friends will be vulgar, liars and cheaters relying on selfish acts of disrespect to our God’s Promise of Salvation. Surround yourself with Godly people and you will experience grace, support and love from complete strangers while living a Promise of Eternal Salvation. By your surrender to a life of Christ, your yoke of slavery will fall to the ground and you will live a life of faith, hope, charity and love. The greatest of these is Love.
 
Why do we always seek a sign from God proving what we are doing is what He is asking asking us to do? There are times you will pray and pray and pray but nothing: No response. This is when we get even closer to God. When you accept His silence, you accept a more personal relationship with Him and His graces will flow even more abundantly. When you demand God give you what you want, your demands will go unanswered and your desires will cause you misery of heart and soul. It is when you accept His silence as a silence of pleasure; you accept His confidence of living a life of grace. This feeling of trust will allow you to say with confidence and pleasure, “I know God hears me” allowing His Grace to fall upon you. Your ability to accept His silence elevates your intimacy with God where your understanding of prayer is about His Glorification to accomplish His Will in your life by and through loving your love of Christ Jesus. He will give you an answer that is Golden. Accept His answer of silence to live a life of Grace.
 
And so we pray: Dear Father God, we pray today for the golden joy of silence to hear Your Will in our lives and to live a life of grace. No longer will we submit to a yoke of slavery but by Your Power we will live a freedom of knowing Your Son’s Truth. Guide us to be slaves of His Love allowing us to share a life of faith, hope, charity and love to all He places in our lives. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
Words of Wonder
 
The pain rests along my heart
Seeking not less than the Truth to start
Gaining a love dwelling deep within
A joy of Salvation’s Love to begin
 
There is more knowledge in a given domain
A person’s ability of silence to sustain
Words of wonder to forever gain
Afforded to all breathe the lame
 
My Blood flows evenly for all to see
Seeking Truth to share Eternally
God’s grace a joy to forever be
In instrument of peace to forever see

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
