No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends

Wig’s Word of God Today 5-27-2011

Who have dedicated their lives to the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Acts:15:26

No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

 

Acts 15:22-31, Psalm 57 & John 15:12-17

 

The decision to embrace the Gentiles without scolding them for not completing the ritual of circumcision is delivered to Antioch by Paul and Barnabas and another named Silas to state: “It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and of us not to place on you any burden beyond these necessities; namely, to abstain from meat sacrificed to idols, from blood, from meats of strangled animals, and from unlawful marriage. If you keep free of these, you will be doing what is right. Farewell.” Acts 15:28-29

 

How important it is for us even 2000 years later to know the Apostles worked out differences between those who loved God and accepted Christ Jesus as their personal LORD and Savior. IN today’s world we see such a need to iron out the pains of choices as the world grows to unprecedented numbers of the human race. Without the ability for us to conquer our differences, we are in store for such havoc and turmoil that there is only One Real Way to solve them: Jesus.

 

This message rings clear in Christ’s Proclamation in John 15: “This is My commandment: love one another as I love you.” John 15:12 If we can’t instill this message of love in our brothers and sisters of humanity, we are surely going to face the Evil One’s desires of absolute chaos, disorder and confusion that our world as we know it will crumble into ruins and God’s chosen few will be swept into heaven by the power of His Almighty Hand. Christ Himself concluded we are no longer slaves to this hate, disarray and turmoil in our lives by embracing His Truth to live in harmony with friend and foe alike.

 

There is no way our world will survive without stopping the silence to circumvent the madness by our dedication and surrender to His love and Redemption. Jesus said, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 Christ’s death on the Cross was the friendship He garnished for the world and accepted as the Will of God for the Forgiveness of Sins. The excess of life will catch up to us soon if we don’t as a Humanity stand up for what is good in God’s Word by living your love of loving Christ Jesus and share His Redemption with the world. Amen.

 

So we ask in prayer: Heavenly King and Almighty Father, we pray today for Your protection of myself and several others in our community as we go to Miami Beach and help the police department as Your “God Squad” representatives to help conduct crowd control and liaison with Memorial Weekend beachgoers from 6 PM to 3 AM Friday and Saturday night. Our T-shirts will proclaim Your Truth titled; “God Squad of Miami Beach Police.” Be our Light in the darkness. Be our wisdom in times of need. We ask this in Jesus Name, Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth,
Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
Romans 8:28
Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Friends I Call You All

Friends I call you all
As witness to My Truth
To overcome the abuse
Friends I forever choose

 Friends I call you all
No longer slaves to drugs
Throw away the booze
Friends of the Father to boot

Friends I call you all
To bear Truth in fruit
Remaining Absolute
Love one another to refute

 

Friends I call you all

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
