Go and learn the meaning of the words I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners. Matthew 9:13

Wig’s Word of God Today 9-21-2011

Until we all attain to the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ. Ephesians 4:13

Go and learn the meaning of the words I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners. Matthew 9:13

Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-13, Psalm 19 & Matthew 9:9-13

Paul is telling the Ephesians to work hard at being everything Christ instilled in our hearts and soul to become the mature Christian by examples of faith, charity and love. I believe one does not become knowledgeable in faith by natural occurrence but by the practice, prayer and proclamation of the Gospel in everything your life has to offer. You must seek knowledge in learning not just by your own study but also by the help of others who lift your learning of Christ’s Truth to another level. For me this person has been and always will be my beautiful wife Toni. She’s constantly seeking new ways to learn about our Christian faith in literature, Biblical audio and spiritual music. My one and only Soul-Mate in Christ Jesus. God’s gift to my devotion and communion with His Truth.

Jesus tells us today to learn what His Word means of desiring mercy not sacrifice in calling the sinners of the world to new life in His Truth. Obviously, Jesus was not excluding the righteous of the world but seeking a change of heart in the Pharisees who were questioning Him of His association with tax collectors and sinners. When we purposely seek out the lost of the world that need the Gospel of Christ the most, we seek to accomplish the Will of God by His instruction in Word and in Deed. His work has been given to all who accept His Father’s call to righteousness allowing everything you seek to mirror God’s love. Wherever you go, God has a plan for your life to share His Son’s Truth allowing the saving of souls to experience true forgiveness of sins. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today for a Unity of Faith by our practice, prayer and proclamation. We pray to become mature in Your Word to share Your Son’s Redemption of sin. May our lives mirror the mercy of His love seeking the lost sinners of the world for Your Glory. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray my African missionary friend Paula’s safe return home yesterday. We pray this all in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Calling Sinners to Rebirth- Matthew 9:9-13

Matthew was called

Sitting in shame

Taxing the rich

Stealing from the lame

Jesus said Follow Me

To share His Truth

Not living in sin

But guided by Proof

Reclining in His home

Matthew’s place of rest

The Pharisees called

Putting Him to the test

Why does your Teacher

Recline with scum

Tax collectors and sinners

Opinionated bums

He replied the healthy are well

Not needing as much

The Truth to prevail

Heal sickness by My touch

He directed them to find

The meaning of His Words

I desire mercy not sacrifice

Calling sinners to rebirth

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
