living the Truth in love, we should grow in every way into Him Who is the Head, Christ

Wig’s Word of God Today 10-23-2010

“living the Truth in love, we should grow in every way into Him Who is the Head, Christ” Ephesians 4:15

Ephesians 4:7-16, Psalm 122:1-2, 3-4ab, 4cd-5 & Luke 13:1-9
 
Humanity is joined together by the Grace of God in His joy and desires linked to us by the Words we study everyday. From this Grace we are given certain “natural gifts” as Paul describes our job is to “work the ministry;” to build up the “Body of Christ.” “From whom the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, with the proper functioning of each part, brings about the body’s growth and builds itself up in love.” Ephesians 4:16 Don’t you just love Ephesians? Building up the Church to make Salvation known throughout the universe is purpose. We, the church, should grow together in Christ as One Body remaining in Unity to accomplish the Will of God. When we loose perspective of life by allowing the “flash of media” to rule our desires, we become disconnected to God’s Divine Plan.
 
A Plan we have to choose to embrace and build up by our faith, sweat, tears, pain and love of vocation to seek and share the Gospel of Christ Jesus. We study His Word every day to accomplish same. As One Body in Christ we can fulfill God’s design of humanity working in harmony and joy in the Lord. Don’t be fooled by the lies and trickery of those scheming to steal your soul. We are One Church in each Community of God by our belief He lived for 33 years, hung on a Cross for our sins and Rose in three days. Jesus Christ is Risen! Without a moment of hesitation I reply, “He IS Risen Indeed” as my arms swell into God-bumps my body tingles and tears of Christ roll down my cheeks. I am His; the Holy Spirit lifting me to His Teachings.
 
The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree is told by Jesus after He instills in us the need for repentance to live a life of faith, hope, charity and love. God’s Patience is known from the parable for those who have not repented but is also known as an example of the end times. We live a life of needs: We need water and nutrients. We need love and affection. We need community and friends. We need to worship and glorify the Lord. We need to give and live in love. Paul recognized humanity has to grow in every way to the Lord as Christ describes in a fig tree needing cultivation. He knows we have to be cultivated in Him by our Practice, our Praying and our Proclamation of His Truth. We can’t love our love of Christ unless we give our own bodies the cultivation of His love to seek and accomplish His Will. Try and remember when you talk to the next person about Christ that it is more important to lift them up in Christ than to exalt your own faith over them. Let’s bring us all together to Glorify the Lord in the Liberty he afforded all by the Blood of His Son and become “One Body in Christ.”
 
And so we pray: Father of Heaven, In every way Lord, we want to grow unto You. Allow me to be cultivated by You. Allow me to seek only what is Your Will. Allow all those who find You through me Glorify You forever. Give us understanding how to become One Body in Christ. Teach us to share Your Purpose to anyone we meet. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
Less You Be Cut Down
 
Grace be given
Grace be called
Grace does liveth
In Humanity’s fall
 
Your gift was sown
Mystery unlocked
Cultivate Christ-desires
Church upon His Rock
 
We all are the same
Stature fulfilled in Christ
Knowledge granted
By Power of His Eternal Life
 
Reflect the trickery
Satan will throw your way
Fertilize your soul
In the Word of God each day
 
These waves will toss you
Through false joys of the heart
Love will be lost
Gain Salvation at all cost
 
Rejoice in His Glory
Seek only His Truth
The House of God must be
A place for each as proof
 
Repent from the life of lies
Find the Love of Loves
Come together as One
Humanity’s Salvation from the Son
 
Keep yourself cultivated
Less you be cut down
The Lord’s Will must be sought
We Glorify His Holy Crown

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
