There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. First John 4:18

Wig’s Word of God Today 1-9-2013

Are you living the fear of punishment by your instant indulgence?

There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. First John 4:18

They had not understood the incident of the loaves. On the contrary, their hearts were hardened. Mark 6:52

First John 4:11-18, Psalm 72 & Mark 6:45-52

I’ve been adjusting lately to the fact that I have reached this amazing milestone of being a 50-year-old man in love with Jesus Christ who has been reflecting on the fear John speaks of in our Study today. I can remember so vividly the feeling of being punished by my actions of excess laziness, lingering and lust that my body tingles with temptation driving me to call out “My LORD and My God” to push away the ugly feeling of fear. We all have been afraid of losing our lives because we sought sin openly or discreet knowing each step we took would rob our Eternal Life for the flash and flair of the external life.

We all have lived the life where gratification comes from self-worth instead of self-denial denying homage to our LORD and Savior instead living the fear of punishment by our instant indulgence allowing Satan to steal our heart’s desire. Just like the Disciples on the boat we are frightened by Jesus walking on the water as we grow by our surroundings of trust or lust in which we either deny or comprehend the revelatory character of Christ’s sign’s revealing His Divine Salvation offered to the world. I pray each of us harden not our hearts but embellish Christ’s Truth in our souls by our faith, hope and love of practice, prayer and preaching. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we never fear Love knowing always Love is You to accomplish Good Will. Happy Birthday prayers to my son Jeffrey-Steven Robin Wiggins who turns 14 today. Praying for Greg Bishop’s strength in Christ. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. I rejoice in You LORD! In Jesus Name. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

Fearing only from no perfection yet– First John 4:11-18

 

If God does love His people

Love one another not being feeble

Nothing seen of Him in a Steeple

Sinners fit not through the Eye of a Needle

 

Yet we find God in each of us

Living our life in a fuss

Perfection is God’s must

Love we always trust

 

We know we remain in Him

Obviously by not committing sin

Leaning on the Spirit of Truth within

Father’s Son is humanity’s Salvation from sin

 

Acknowledge the Christ

Your life will be right

No fear in punishment’s fight

Only God’s Truth our delight

 

For He is Love to remain in depth

Perfection in us by our God-fearing respect

Love so perfected any fear’s regret

Fearing only from no perfection yet

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
