Jesus said to him in reply, “It is written: ‘You shall worship the LORD, your God, and Him alone shall you serve.’” “It also says, ‘You shall not put the LORD, your God, to the test.’” Luke 4:8,12

Live in today confessing with your mouth God is the only God of your heart.

For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. For the Scripture says, “No one who believes in Him will be put to shame.” Romans 10:10-11

Jesus said to him in reply, “It is written: ‘You shall worship the LORD, your God, and Him alone shall you serve.’” “It also says, ‘You shall not put the LORD, your God, to the test.’” Luke 4:8,12

Deuteronomy 26:4-10, Psalm 91, Romans 10:8-13 & Luke 4:1-13

Indeed my purpose is to share God’s Word in brevity daily following a path walked by Christ contributing the belief in my heart of Eternal Life by a surrender to Him “and Him alone” not expecting a test to be shown for in my heart His grace is sufficient alone. Paul reminds us how not to feel “put to shame” similar to the thoughts I delved as a young man shamefully denying the One and only Way. I recall with such detail the spiteful ways I denied Him through adolescence, annoyance and adulthood not participating in the faith, hope and love of Charity’s Will.

I often pray for the forgiveness of my teenage years where I lived as an annoyance searching for the darkness to avoid Truth’s everlasting wail. I didn’t worship nothin’ or anything as my wife would surely remind me now as I let out my Southern chuckle of my South Georgia cell. Life wasn’t surefooted in Truth but rather the absence of confession from a mouth full of filth. Taught by a drunken Georgia mechanic who I worshipped as the best father a child could smell.

You know? The smell of mom or dad that resonates in your soul’s memory bank when they picked you up as a child and whispered sweet nothings smelling of gold. Today we all seemed so rushed we can’t seem to catch up with today to live for tomorrow. Why I write hopefully less each day to remind us we can live in the moment to find hope for each breath we take. A natural twist of growth in Christ’s Salvation offered advice to live in Him in wonder of charity’s reason absent of strife. Live in today confessing with your mouth God is the only God of your heart where the test has already been won. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to always confess with our mouths and act with our minds to live Christ’s charity of Salvation. Praying for Team Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Constant prayers for Greg Bishop. I’m praying for my prayer partner Marco. LORD, remove our desires to live for You and You alone. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

Satan departed for in Christ His Father He will abide– Luke 4:1-13

 

The Holy Spirit moved Him

Into the desert to find

Temptation from the devil

Forty days God never heard Him whine

 

By the end of Christ’s prayer desert trek

He was hungry and filled with the Sprit to seek

The Devil had an if the Son of God stepped

Not by bread alone does a stone feed the meek

 

All the kingdoms of the world

Were shown at His feet

The single instant gone the Devil besieged

Power and glory Yours if you worship me

 

Jesus gave a reply

You must know the right

Only comes from worshipping

As it is written to love not fight

 

There is only One God your LORD alone

Let the one without sin cast the first stone

Taking Him up resting Him a top a temple to moan

A test of the angels who will swoop down as shown

 

They will guard you as it is written turning the tide

Jesus rebuked him saying no test to God can we confide

For it also written to the test we cannot put the LORD to deny

Satan departed for in Christ His Father He will abide

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
