So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium. The Disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:51-52

 

You must believe Me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; or at least believe it on the evidence of these Works. John 14:11

 

Acts 13:44-52, Psalm 98 & John 14:7-14

 

Sometimes we let our pride and envy get in the way when it comes to establishing and promoting the Word of God when people embrace their selfish ways and baulk at your sharing of Christ’s Truth. We may attempt to go toe-to-toe with them so to speak and end up trying to force the Word of God down their throats. We must learn to “shake the dust from (our) feet” (see Luke 9:5 and Matthew 10:14) and hope God’s messengers will share the Good News in God’s Time and not our own.

 

Jesus had warned the Disciples of people who are lost and confused filled with selfish desires of flesh who would rebuke them shutting out the Way wondering in the shadows of sin. Paul learned early on he would have celebrations of success combined with bouts of humility. It takes more to back away than it does to brawl with your ego. I struggle sometimes to get this point across to people I meet because the Word of God gives me such feelings of potency while God reminds us to be filled meekness granting an unassuming nature. Savoring the taste of a good slice of humble pie goes a long way in the midst of dusty surroundings filling the air as you walk away.

 

Jesus time-and-time again taught us to have faith in His example of His Omnipotence giving us the power to simply believe. He commands us to understand we can do greater works than He by trusting in His gift of Salvation where faith, hope and love becomes the inner and outer you. “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me, or else, believe because of the Works themselves.” John 14:11 Learning to “Let Go and Let God” is tough to do especially when outer desires of the heart get in the way. Only by practice, prayer and preaching can one establish a life in Christ to accomplish the Will of God. Your works will be greater than His by the accepting and living His Truth. Amen.

 

Dear Father, we pray to shake our dust off with humility to mimic Your Son. We pray for my children to find Christ’s Way to forgive and connect our hearts in love. I pray You relieve the pain I have in my side LORD but continue the burning sensation in the center of my heart to live only for You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

The Gentiles saved from hell’s reek- Acts 13:44-52

 

Paul and Barnabas gathered the whole city

To hear the Word of God so eternally pretty

The Jews became Jealous violent and giddy

As Paul and Barnabas spoke the nitty gritty

 

The Word of God was spoken first

Leaving them aching for God’s Eternal thirst

Rejected by you condemned to not know Eternal Life

We turn to the Gentiles to share God’s Light

 

The Gentiles celebrated God’s Redemption Plan

Glorifying the Word of God high above in hand

Spreading the Good News throughout the entire land

As the Jews incited women of prominence to expel Christ’s fans

 

They shook the dust from their feet

Rejoicing in the Holy Spirit‘s treat

Humility focused on Christ’s peek

The Gentiles saved from hell’s reek

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
