No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24

No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24

Second Chronicles 24:17-25, Psalm 89 & Matthew 6:24-34

I find myself today sitting in a small outreach center for spiritual retreats in Vineland, NJ experiencing the joy of Brotherhood in an Emmaus retreat for the boys of South Jersey. I have to admit the love of Christ is full force today amongst people who up to yesterday were complete strangers but now are Brothers in Christ. You can see every type of person here who seeks to accomplish the Will of God by faith, charity and love and I am excited to say each are filled with the Spirit of God. When I look into the eyes of these men, I see men who love one another for what they are and not for what they bring to the table in possessions or money. They have a genuine desire to be devoted to one another serving God to His fullest expectations.

In my life, I have been drawn to the temptations and enticements of toys, noise and financial worth not recognizing the desires of flesh these items can cause in your life until it was too late to stop my progression of selfishness and sin. In my case, the end result was losing everything living on the streets of despair but God had a different plan for me I accepted when I learned to place His Truth in my life first and seek the comforts of faith, hope and love. I know this is one of the reasons why I am drawn to the homeless of the world for I have felt the sting of thorns sleeping in the bushes of a master of sin. I finally learned to love God by knowing myself first in the Glory of God the Father. It is my prayer to accomplish His Will by serving only His Truth and nothing more, nothing less. Amen.

In prayer we ask: Dear LORD, we pray today to seek Your Truth above all else serving only Your Truth as our Master of faith, hope and love. We pray for the NJ Emmaus weekend to be filled with Your Spirit LORD. We pray for the NC Emmaus Team preparations. We pray for Mike the homeless man whose health concerns are immediate. We pray for our wives praying for us at home. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

My Walk to Emmaus set me free- Tribute to Carlos Z.

 

Looked in the mirror

Finding who you are

Defining your daily actions

To increase my heart’s desire

 

Honesty in my presence

Not here to teach my view

No cult of an angle to experience

Living in Christ anew

 

We are here because God calls us

Not to force any beauty of me

My priorities are driven relentless

By God’s love of Eternity I thee

 

I thought I saw the weakness

In men who hugged a fool

My hole in my chest opened

Finding a liar, a cheat, a drool

 

I watched them be a brother

A husband and a friend revealed

I asked God to show His presence

I learned God was in all unconcealed

 

I witnesses guys in friendship

I was scared at first to see

They shared peace I didn’t know to encourage

Loving God through knowing myself for He

My Walk to Emmaus set me free

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
