For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 5:20

For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 5:20

 

First Kings 18:41-46, Psalm 65 & Matthew 5:20-26

 

The Sermon on the Mount brought about different types of right and wrong as conferred on the Disciples by Christ to prepare them for ministering the New Covenant to the world. What began as the beauty of life in the Beatitudes turns to how you maintain your “flavor” if you will for the LORD’s Truth switching to the law ending with the six examples of conduct.

 

Today Jesus instructs us to live an “up righted” life avoiding anger with your friends, family and strangers alike as the first example of conduct. We must resolve to work out our differences or lose in court and be liable to imprisonment as well. Jesus goes as far as saying you must do this before you present yourself to Him at His Altar in the House of God. Anger becomes a losing battle with severe consequences including separating us from God nullifying our ticket to heaven so to speak. Resolution will allow you to live resolute for God. Amen.

 

I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother. Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him. And then come and offer your gift.” Matthew 5:22abc, 23-24, 25a, 24c

 

In prayer, we ask, Dear LORD, we pray today to live an upright life for Your glory. We pray for resolution for a world confused by the flash of media, lust and greed. We pray for our children, our moms and dads, our family, our friends and the people we meet every day. LORD please help us in our surrender to be a people of action to live resolute for Your Truth. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

Fetch reconciliation to eternally show- Matthew 5:20-26

 

His Disciples heard Him speak

Of conduct we should all learn to seek

Avoiding anger that is foolish and weak

Living for righteousness in life’s peak

 

You cannot enter the Kingdom to show

If anger dwells in your heart and soul

Thou shall not kill in judgments no

Anger against brother judgments to know

 

Calling someone Raqa is an imbecile twist

To answer to the Sanhedrin they can’t resist

Calling someone a fool is liable to fire

Seeking to ridicule can make you a liar

 

So now at the altar leave your gift and go

Fetch reconciliation to eternally show

How forgiveness and love is greater to know

Returning to offer the gift as wisdom learns to grow

 

Settle with him as quick as you ran

Before the judge hands you over to serve in a can

Round walls will be your night and day guard

Until every last penny is paid serving time that is hard

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
