Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the Gospel of God

Wig’s Word of God Today 12-19-2010

Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the Gospel of God, which He promised previously through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures. Romans 1:1-2

Isaiah 7:10-14, Psalm 24:1-2, 3-4, 5-6., Romans 1:1-7 & Matthew 1:18-24

While I sat with about eighty men and prayed last Friday morning, one of my Brother’s in Christ pointed out to me this passage, “a slave of Christ Jesus,” saying, “I like this, He was a Slave of Christ.” I replied with an, “Amen Brother. A Slave of Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!” To be a slave of the Truth allowing yourself the joy of being One with God as Isaiah and all the Prophets where He resides in your soul to guide you and teach you. Paul teaches those of us who believe in Christ to be “proclaimer’s of His Truth” in an abiding reality of not being holy men and women but sharing His Gospel of Redemption.
 
After countless hours of studying the Bible and learning more about the Saints and Martyrs, I have come to understand that personal holiness is an effect of Redemption and not the cause of it. One cannot be focused on his own holiness to receive Redemption or place this desire above getting to know God. We must all strive to relinquish our own desires and surrender totally to living a life of Christ to Proclaim the Gospel with confidence and joy. When you let go and let God run your life, loving your love of Christ becomes your strength, your confidence and your calling.
 
And so we pray: My Lord and My God, we pray today for safe travels of Christmas shoppers. I pray today for my family’s well-being, my wife, my daughter in Medical School, my son in Hollywood, California, my son in Orlando and my two sons here in Homestead. I pray as always for everyone who has asked me to pray for them and all those I said I would pray for. I pray to accomplish Your Will Lord in all I do. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

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
