For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13

For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13

I give praise to You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Matthew 11:25

Zechariah 9:9-10, Psalm 145, Romans 8:9, 11-13 & Matthew 11:25-30

I think it goes without saying that our world today lives in the flesh diluting the Spirit in every facet of society weakening the Church in followers and believers. Sometimes I wonder if the world will ever be able to return to a world that fears the LORD and the consequences of living a life of sin and self. I ran across a friend the other day that was obviously frightened by something in his life and after some conversation I learned he was struggling with making decisions about a relationship he had just ended. He had fallen for the weakness of the flesh and mixed that with wrong decisions.

What occurred to me was that he made decisions based on the flesh and not the Spirit. All of us are called to make decisions every day about life and they must be driven by the LORD’s Word to habitually overcome the temptation of the flesh mingled with responsibilities to live a life in faith, hope and love. As Jesus reminds us today, God will reveal all to the childlike who follow directions with the smile of an Angel. You know, how a child will follow you just by leading with happiness and joy? Well God’s Word is our happiness and His Truth is our joy that we as adults must learn to follow as a child will follow with confidence and trust.

So we ask in prayer: My LORD and my God, we pray today to always remain childlike in our following of Your Word to live in faith, hope and love gaining harmony for humanity. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Like a Child

Like a child you must follow

Like a child you must see

Like a child you must acknowledge

Like a child you must be

Like a child yearning for Heaven

Like a child who is in need

Like a child given honey

Like a child learning to read

Like a child He will comfort you

Like a child He will agree

Like a child He will show you

Like a child He will set you free

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
