So you are never to be ashamed of witnessing to our LORD, or ashamed of me for being his prisoner; but share in my hardships for the sake of the Gospel, relying on the Power of God. Second Timothy 1:8

Wig’s Word of God Today 6-6-2012

 

Apostle of Christ Jesus through the Will of God in accordance with His promise of life in Christ Jesus. So you are never to be ashamed of witnessing to our LORD, or ashamed of me for being his prisoner; but share in my hardships for the sake of the Gospel, relying on the Power of God. Second Timothy 1:1/8

 

Second Timothy 1:1-12, Psalm 123 & Mark 12:18-27

 

Today in Second Timothy, Paul is reminding us to stay focused on our gift of Christ’s Gospel to know His Passion, Perfection and Purpose. He asks us to never be timid when living the Gospel of Christ seeking not our own pleasures of the flesh but fan the flames of living for the pleasure of faith, charity and love.

 

By the Will of God I humbly bow before His Truth daily to witness from my knees how to live as an Apostle of Christ Jesus in accordance with His Promise for I have never been ashamed to speak of His Truth to anyone, anytime or anywhere. I am His prisoner sharing in the hardships for the sake of the Gospel knowing my practice, prayer and preaching are guided by His Truth to live for His Will.

 

Night and day I thank God whom I serve with a pure conscience as my ancestors did. I remember you in my prayers constantly night and day; That is why I am reminding you now to fan into a flame the gift of God that you possess through the laying on of my hands. God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love and self-control.” Second Timothy 1:5-7

 

Many times I will share with you how easy it is to talk to complete strangers about Christ’s Truth. Yesterday, I pulled up to get gas running into an Emmaus Brother at the pump. Seen or unseen, if you need an Emmaus Brother just pray. After hugging (un Abrazo), he finished off filling his tank and left and a man pulled up whom I began to chat to.

 

When I finished talking to him, I said, “God Bless You” experiencing what I call as a Christ-like reply. “God Bless You too. How nice it is to hear a man say God Bless You without hesitation.” I pray we all can fulfill the Kingdom of God’s request of being people of faith not afraid or “ashamed for the sake of the Gospel, relying on the Power of God.” Amen.

 

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to live for Christ’s Gospel sharing in the joys as well as the hardships of life to live for Your Will LORD. We pray for the new Emmaus Brothers beginning our study together today LORD. We pray for guidance LORD to live as only a Disciple knows how. We pray for family, friends and strangers alike who struggle with and/or celebrate Your love. Shout out to Braulio of love and prayers. 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

 

The Salvation of Christ he gave his life to present- Second Timothy 1:1-12

 

Timothy was like his brother

Learned to preach like no other

Paul his mentor he smothered

Living for Christ’s Will as a lover

 

Of the promise of a life in Christ

To Timothy his dear child for advice

Grace, Mercy and Peace from God to suffice

Guided by the Truth of Christ’s Eternal Light

 

Paul shared his gratefulness of God

Worshipping daily by His Staff and Rod

In a clear conscious as his ancestors did

Prayers for you are constant with a nod of my lid

 

In His Reason I remind you to stir

The Flame of Christ His Gift to incur

By the laying of hands your spirit concurred

No cowardice blood in your will to deter

 

Sin from laying his hands on you

By power, self-control and love will you prove

You are never ashamed of testimony True

Nor of me a prisoner of God’s Eternal Truth

 

I see the hardship you bare for the Gospel spoils

Facing them with strength coming from His toils

He called us to Holiness void of ugly boils

In His works not our own design of loyals

 

His grace was evident before time began

Manifest and made to be Kingdom’s stand

Christ Jesus lived by His Father’s Holy Hands

Savior of the world Truth’s Foundation command

 

Death destroyed where immortality is scene

By the Light of Truth His Gospel to believe

Appointed as preacher, Apostle and teacher

Paul was unashamed of the sufferings feature

 

If only we’d all believe as I do in Him

Whom the world hated as the Father’s Kin

Established confidence in Paul to guard His defense

The Salvation of Christ he gave his life to present

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
