For God knows the faithful who win! Amen. “I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first.” Rev. 2:4-5b

For God knows the faithful who win! Amen.

I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first. Rev. 2:4-5b

Revelation 1:1-4; 2:1-5, Psalm 1 & Luke 18:35-43

The life of a Christian has its ups and downs but is promised something more than any other thing or possession we could fathom across the centuries of time; Eternal Life. The race is not how fast we can get to the finish line but how strong we can endure the trials and tribulations of life while we share the Way to Sin’s Forgiveness and Truth to live accepting faith, charity and love as the Divine Hope we seek in every instance our lives portray.

As I hung out with Mark, my oldest friend in the world, his 12-year-old son Austin and my 13-year-old son Jeffrey-Steven this past weekend, I shared with them the Walk God has instilled in my heart for the Truth His Son shared with humanity some 2000 years ago. I repeated the words “God Bless You” often as I engaged fans of a Gator Game along University Avenue, Veterans in and out of uniform as well as a man holding a sign that stated “Jesus Loves You.”

This love of Christ that directed my heart so much that I repent daily calling out to God in forgiveness, faith and favor to accomplish the Works he asks us all to do. I took them all into my place of Baptism of Saint Augustine kneeling in prayer along the front pew praying in thanksgiving aloud to encourage their trust in Him. The young man asked why I blessed myself with the water at the entrance taking mental notes he shared with me later.

The world around us has fallen so deep it appears we are lowering a rope of Salvation that is too short seemingly never reaching the bottom of a pit of secular hell. I for one do not believe this because the Rope of Salvation is Everlasting working as a tether to Truth no one can deny but many have turned their back on for as long as people have walked the earth. I remind us today that when we have “fallen,” we should get in repentance seeking to accomplish the Works Christ instills in each of our hearts. Amen.

Let us pray: Dear God, we pray today to pick ourselves up when we fall sharing the works of Truth repenting aloud seeking favor, fortitude and forgiveness. We pray a prayer of thanksgiving for my car’s alternator not dying until I drove into the driveway from a five-hour trip from Gainesville. A special birthday prayer for my mom Betty Jean Carter Wiggins Pitts. Happy Birthday! We pray in Christ’s Risen Name indeed. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Philippians 4:4-7 Romans 8:28

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!

 

For God knows the faithful who win! Amen. – Psalm 1

 

Walk not in wicked counsel

Blessing comes His Way

Minus sinners and scoffers

With God you should start your day

 

The LORD is the joy

His Law we learn to pray

A meditation of Truth

Sleeping soundly as we lay

 

Waters running to your roots

Planted near the stream of life

Fruits of due season

Prospers by the grace of His Light

 

Not so for the wicked

Floating as chaff of sinful lust

Judgment will be God’s

Arising not in the assembly of the just

 

For the LORD knows which way to begin

The just seeks not the ugliness of sin

The wicked way always leads to ruin

For God knows the faithful who win amen

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
