For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many

Wig’s Word fo God Today 3-2-2011

Thus it will be known to the very ends of the earth that you are the eternal God. Sirach 36:17
 
For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45

Sirach 36:1, 4-5a, 10-17, Psalm 79:8, 9, 11 and 13 & Mark 10:32-45
 
I strive every day to write a reflection filled with the Spirit of God that will move people to read their Bible, to move people to pray and to move people to proclaim with confidence void of Christ-like stage fight. I seek to proclaim “to the very ends of the earth that You are the eternal God” to rescue the world from jealously, worry or revenge. Many in today’s world are so filled with sin they have forgotten what living in Truth feels like let alone how to speak it when it comes to their mind. Today’s message in Sirach is a message of faith asking our LORD to rescue humanity from the ugliness associated with selfish acts of sin. The author asks God to intervene and show His Saving Power to all the nations. By the death of His Only Son, God reconciled the world to a Savior of all that we can Trust He will deliver mankind from Satan’s grips of selfishness.
 
Jesus spoke to us yesterday that wealth is not an automatic ticket to enter the Gates of Heaven rather He challenges us to void ourselves of wealth and follow Him to His Eternal Kingdom through acts of faith, charity and love. Today we hear Jesus tell James and John, the sons of Zebedee and one of the early followers of Christ that His seat in Heaven on the left or the right is not for Him to give for it is only God who can assign those seats. After explaining that He would have to suffer at the hands of the Gentiles, Christ further expresses our need to serve instead of being served for True Discipleship comes from serving the afflicted, the hungry and the poor. Jesus frees humanity from sin by His Death on a Cross but he true freedom mankind will experience is in living a life dedicated to His Truth in a complete surrender to serving the least amoung us. “For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Amen.

Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”
 
For I Came to Serve in Truth
 
Our God rules the Universe
A Light of Mercy has hung
Nations will dread your Name
God can never be shun
 
Signs of wonders produced
In the lives of all to see
Pleasure of giving and feeding
His Sheep of all humanity
 
Evidence rests of this in Jesus
The Christ Who is LORD of all
His death and resurrection fulfilled
The Covenant of Love His call
 
Foretelling His death and sufferings
Christ explained His required plight
Telling James and John sons of Zebedee
God establishes Heaven’s seating right
 
You can experience my Baptism
Drink from My Cup of Salvation too
By being a servant to many
For I came to serve in Truth

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
