Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are chosen

Wig’s Word of God Today 10-10-2010

Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they too may obtain the Salvation that is in Christ Jesus, together with eternal glory.

2 Timothy 2:102 Kings 5:14-17, Psalm 98, 2 Timothy 2:8-13 & Luke 17:11-19

How do you know who is chosen to talk to about the Salvation of Christ Jesus? Do you hear a voice in your head that says “talk to that person about Jesus?” We are commanded to preach the Gospel to everyone we meet but do you really feel this is possible? The answer is a resounding YES! You proclaim by your daily walk by praying to the Spirit, “with all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones and also for me, that speech may be given me to open my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Gospel Ephesians 6:18 -19 A surrender to His Truth is shown in everything you do and people will see this.
 
A friend of mine told me a story of a time he was in a Home Depot and he heard a voice as he was checking out saying, “tell this checkout girl about Jesus.” He scoffed at himself thinking he wasn’t going to do it but as he was departing her he said, “do you know Jesus?” Her reply was, “I know of Him.” He walked away and began to drive home and began thinking of a Rosary he had purchased on a mission trip that was made of rosewood. The voice kept telling him to get it and take it back to her. Well, he did, with some hesitance but as he walked back into the Home Depot he found her all be herself at the end checkout (divine instance) and walked up to her handing her the Rosary. She thanked him with an embrace and more small talk about the Lord and he left. Six months later he received a call from her and she asked if she could come over. Showing up with a small box of candy he invited her into his home and as they sat down she explained what an impact his Christ-like gesture has had in her life the past six months. Her family life has begun a new and her nitpicking of her husband has stopped and their relationship has grown closer in the Lord. She continued to tell him her life had changed from him listening to a voice in his head stating “ask her if she knows Jesus.” Just like the Prophet Elisha, my friend is a man of God who helped a woman clean up her life and heal her marriage by the power of the Lord. Accepting no favors, my friend pursued sharing the Lord for the Salvation of a Soul in need.
 
What I really want all of you to know about my friend is that he did this in the midst of a battle with cancer never swaying to his illness to give all he has to the Love of Christ Jesus. His battle with cancer continues and his love of the Lord is resolute praying to be healed but accepting the Will of God in all things. Who will you talk to the Lord about today? Can you share the Gospel of Christ Jesus while suffering from any type of illness of troubles? Jesus cleansed 10 lepers but only one returned to thank the Lord giving the one pardon by his faith while allowing the other 9 to remain clean. Loving your love of Christ will allow you to bear all things for the sake of His Truth for as it is written: “This saying is trustworthy: If we have died with Him we shall also live with Him; if we persevere we shall also reign with Him. But if we deny Him He will deny us. If we are unfaithful He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” 2 Timothy 2:11-13 My friend has persevered even though a terrible cancer is eating away at his body but his soul has received the Promise of the Lord and he is thankful. Are you being thankful today while proclaiming the Gospel of Christ Jesus?
 
And so we pray: Dear Abba Father, I thank You for giving me the strength to persevere to share the Gospel of Your Son to complete strangers. I ask in faith that you heal my friend allowing him to continue share Your Son’s Truth with the world. I accept all things in Your Holy Name Lord and I confidently proclaim that I will never deny You anytime, anyplace or anywhere. 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
