The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes. Mark 12:10-11

Tobit 1:3; 2:1a-8, Psalm 112:1b-2, 3b-4, 5-6 & Mark 12:1-12
 
I witness rejection weekly when I go and pray at the abortion clinic on 117th Avenue here in Miami. I see the pain in the faces of women who are rejecting the life God has given them as they drive in and I witness the sadness they feel as they drive away after killing their baby in a complete act of rejection. This past Saturday when I walked up at 6:50 AM with my beautiful wife, I noticed a small chalk board easel with writing on it set up at the entrance. I strolled over and began to read it aloud as the opposition leader put up her sign to block my view of the clinic. “Today is the first day of a new beginning” the chalk writing said as my words echoed in the early morning air. The opposition leader then said, “Instant healing when the abortion is complete.” None of us feel instant healing when death occurs. It takes time to heal and it takes time to learn how to live with yourself after rejecting life inside you or in my case another life inside another person.
 
Jesus reminds the Scribes, Elders and Pharisees through a parable that it is God’s Plan for Christ to be rejected and killed. The final rejection by the Religious Leaders of Israel denotes the tenant farmers in the story and the messengers are His servants the prophets. The punishment of death for the farmers is God’s wrath on the unbelievers and the vineyards transfer to new owners is the New Israel of Christ believers. Jesus takes His cornerstone passage from Psalm 118:22-23 where He equates the death and resurrection He will soon experience to the stone’s rejection is being allowed by God to fulfill His Promise of a New Covenant. The rejection of Christ is wonderful in our eyes because His Sacrifice allows us to embrace His Redemptive Plan of forgiving the sins of all humanity. We celebrate this rejection as a joy of loving our love of Christ Jesus. Christ’s rejection allows our sins to be forgiven for all eternity and to follow His Truth to accomplish His Will.
 
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today for all health care workers who help those who are sick and dying. May they bring peace and comfort to those by Your Son’s embrace of love. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”

A Truth Revealed the Weak

He left on a journey
To share Truth with the poor
He asked His followers to sacrifice
The pleasures of this world

How many times can I lie to myself?
How many times can I try myself?
How many times can I cry to myself?
How many times can I die myself?

How many times can we deny Him
The questions run so deep
Every parable Christ shared
A Truth revealed the weak

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

    This is a very profound explaination of this scripture, which is the essence of next Sunday’s gosple. My prayer group,Our Lady of Divine Hope Prayer Group which meets tonight focusses on the following Sunday gosple. We each give our interpretation of what the gosple says to each of us and how it will affect us in our daily life.
