Deacon: Life of practice, prayer and preaching indulged in a communion with God.

They presented these men to the Apostles who prayed and laid hands on them. Acts 6:6

When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But He said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” John 6:19-20

Acts 6:1-7, Psalm 33 & John 6:16-21

I’ve watched a man or two come full circle in their surrender to living God’s Truth becoming a Deacon helping the church to fulfill its mission on earth. They each have lived a special gift or desire to accomplish for God such as serving the poor, feeding the hungry or caring for the sick. They live a life of obedience to practice, prayer and preaching reaching into the depths of communities by the Bible they relish surrendered to the constant prayer God calls us all to proclaiming the Truth every step they take.

Ordained as intended constant witnesses not by the collar they place around their neck but by the predestined submission to living as Christ in charity. Here, in this place we find them unafraid seemingly walking on water alongside Jesus by their life conceded to His love. This courage comes from daily practice of reading your Bible with an open heart not so much learning to recite parables as much as to undertake each example of lessons learned in Scripture normalizing your life with the Commands God places on our heart to melt throughout our soul.

This should lead all of us to a life of prayer indulged in a communion with God relishing every thought as the love we embrace in communicating with our Creator. Oh, the Our Father comes to mind but as importantly the desire to tell God how you really feel about His love, His Son and His Salvation constantly in thanksgiving by the smile your prayer brings to your life displayed upon your lips. People are drawn to it and you openly proclaim it with zealous fervor submitting to preaching by words your action creates for His Truth. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to live unafraid of submitting to Your love. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day seven of a Novena for Russ Thoms and his daughter Serenity. Prayers for Kairos reunion today. Happy birthday prayers to my sister Theresa. LORD from Psalm 111:10 I chant: ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; prudent are all who practice it. His praise endures forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

Jesus was Truly Human– In Honor of Pastor Rob Ladner

 

Was Christ real?

Appeared in flesh

Endured hunger

Pain He truly felt

 

He won over Jew and Greeks

Perspective He completes

Strength being meek

Father He taught to seek

 

Jesus The Man

All things except sin

Samaritan woman would think

Why Jesus asked her for a drink

 

Why mention He was thirsty?

Why was He condemned?

Why else would He be hungry?

Why? He was the Son of Man without sin.

 

Jesus was truly human

He prayed for the Father’s Will

A man faced with death

No doubt a man they would kill

 

Divine Ever Still

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
