Now this LORD is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is freedom. Such by God’s mercy is our ministry, and therefore we do not waver. If our Gospel seems to be veiled at all, it is so to those who are on the way to destruction, the unbelievers whose minds have been blinded by the god of this world, so that they cannot see shining the Light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. It is not ourselves that we are proclaiming, but Christ Jesus as the LORD, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. It is God who said, ‘Let Light shine out of darkness,’ that has shone into our hearts to enlighten them with the knowledge of God’s glory, the glory on the face of Christ. 2nd Corinthians 3:17- 4:1-6

Never waiver for Christ’s Sake living in the midst of troubles.

Now this LORD is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is freedom. Such by God’s mercy is our ministry, and therefore we do not waver. If our Gospel seems to be veiled at all, it is so to those who are on the way to destruction, the unbelievers whose minds have been blinded by the god of this world, so that they cannot see shining the Light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. It is not ourselves that we are proclaiming, but Christ Jesus as the LORD, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

Second Corinthians 3:15–4:6, Psalm 85 & Matthew 5:20-26

We awake this morning at the tranquil Franciscan Retreat Center in Tampa, Florida taking in the Spirit of Christ living for the glory of God. We, my beautiful wife Toni and I, are here to celebrate the birth of a servant for Christ’s Sake consecrated Antonia born on the Feast of St Anthony. Yes, my amazing Soul-Mate in Christ asked not for diamonds and pearls (though she loves her jewelry), she asked to get away to someplace new to refresh our souls spending time in silence praying for faith, hope and love to overcome our selfish needs and live for the Glory of God. We serve the Spirit of Christ together shinning the Gospel Light to anyone, anytime and anywhere hoping as many of you do we can be an instrument of God’s peace.

God reminds us today we are to never waiver for Christ’s Sake living in the midst of troubles to gain a better plan directed by the Gospel we live in our actions proclaimed with our lips praying for “those who are on the way to destruction.” We must let the “Light shine out of darkness” providing hope where there is despair sharing Salvation as we “enlighten them with the knowledge of God’s glory, the glory on the face of Christ.” I was singing as I mowed the other day not thinking of others around me but feeling the moment of Christ’s Spirit listening to Leeland’s “Holy Spirit have Your way with me.” As I kneeled in the midst of hearing “what a joy it is to give my life to You,” I sang even louder, “more of You and less of me God” a young boy walked up and asked, “Are you singing?” “Amen,” I said as I looked at his smile of innocence. “God has a plan for you too young man. God Bless you!” There is freedom! Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray Your Spirit guides our every thought, action and deed. Birthday prayers for my wife and Soul-Mate in Christ, Toni. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. Precious Blood Novena day two of special intentions. LORD from Psalm 30:6, 13 I chant- “For His anger lasts but a moment; His favor a lifetime. At dusk weeping comes for the night; but at dawn there is rejoicing. So that my glory may praise You and not be silent. O LORD, my God, forever will I give You thanks.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,

God’s knowledge of Christ on our face– Second Corinthians 3:15–4:6

Turning to the LORD
His veil is removed
Standing in His midst
Our surrender to His Truth

Here in this moment
We find freedom’s grace
Transformed from His image
The Spirit alive in our face

Discouraged not in our obedience
His Ministry of Salvation our guide
Veiled to those who are perishing
From sinners His Face He will always hide

Only Christ do we preach to taste
Slaves for Christ’s Sake not waste
God’s Light shining in hearts of grace
God’s knowledge of Christ on our face

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
