He said to him, “Follow Me.” And leaving everything behind, he got up and followed Him. Luke 5:27b-28

He left his own interests behind to celebrate the Truth of living for charity.

If you refrain from trampling the Sabbath, from following your own pursuits on My holy day; If you call the Sabbath a delight, the LORD’s holy day glorious; If you glorify it by not following your ways, seeking your own interests, or pursuing your own affairs. Isaiah 58:13

He said to him, “Follow Me.” And leaving everything behind, he got up and followed Him. Luke 5:27b-28

Isaiah 58:9-14, Psalm 86 & Luke 5:27-32

It is much easier to trust what we can see than what we have faith is there by feeling not by touch but the eternal aspect of one’s soul that resonates with endless love by the Creator of life. It causes you “God Bumps” as I like to call them allowing such trust it seems unfathomable now I could every deny His Truth in any thought, desire or vocation. “Levi the Tax Collector” felt it by the same presence but being asked personally face-to-face must have been an amazing feeling obviously so much so that Levi trusted Him to walk away from his post without hesitation. “Leaving everything behind, he got up and followed Him.”

I am always seeking to glorify God even when I make mistakes that hinder my well-being I will call out to God following His Son’s Way searching for the Truth of one’s soul to live by faith, hope and love of God’s charitable affection. Some people may believe giving to God means only sharing your desires once a week on the Sabbath turned Sunday (eternal switch of man’s desires?) but I beg to differ asking is not God in our souls every second of every day?

The trust our future faithful accountant of the Apostles funds would give in an instant allowing every moment of every day surrendered to Christ’s Way to Heaven and the Eternal bound to God’s love was an amazing display of responsibility. He left his own interests behind to celebrate the Truth of living for charity diversifying his wealth, his talents and his desire to serve the Messiah living an honor relished by people far-and-wide.

Life becomes “more focused” when we follow Christ as described by a prisoner in our Kairos group last night. The joy in the eyes of men who follow Christ who may crave freedom from mistaken follies but they earnestly desire Christ’s forgiveness as much as they yearn for God’s love. It’s one tough act to follow Jesus in the walls of confinement and I am constantly amazed every time we go in the response to Holy Spirit’s ways of securing the following even more because of our presence there. We thank you LORD for allowing this opportunity to follow Your Son even in the midst of barbed wire and multiple fences. Guide us LORD to follow Your witness of Truth. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to follow Your Son in adversity and admittance. Prayers for Jody and Tommy for Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Constant prayers for Greg Bishop. We close our Novena of Prayers for a teenager name Monica today. Prayers for Marco. LORD, lift us when we fall to always follow. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

Worrying about the righteous I call not– Luke 5:27-32

 

Tax collectors duty

Customs post truly

Jesus named his duty

Follow Me Levi truly

 

Behind all left the memories

Getting up trusting completely

His duty secured securely

To Christ’s Way to Eternity

 

Great banquet was his feast

Given to Christ complete

Levi’s house filled sinner’s seats

Scribes whined why eating with the sinners stink

 

Healthy people need a physician not

The sick surely do as you mock

Sinners are called to repentance to stop

Worrying about the righteous I call not

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
