Action through Christ’s charitable proclamation of service by love.

Through Him [then] let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess His Name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have; God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind. Hebrews 13: 15-16

His heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. Mark 6:34b

Hebrews 13:15-17, 20-21, Psalm 23 & Mark 6:30-34

When I think of God’s grace, I think of Christ and how “His heart was moved with pity for them” as He displays in my heart the desire to exhibit charity in every thought, action and deed I pursue living for love of sacrifice neglecting excess for the righteousness of purity. I know what He has taught me is true forgiveness living in Truth knowing Him continually embracing a state of holiness. Many Saints will describe their journey from sin to Salvation as living in a state of Christ to love the joy of being holy. They first and foremost practiced by reading their Bible daily if not several times a day. In the midst of their Bible Study, they would pray offering sacrifice and praise continually (yes it can be done) to the Father of Mercy through the Prince of Peace. Most Saints were good orators but many displayed holiness in obedience to God not in words but action through Christ’s charitable proclamation of service by love.

Here we find the ever humble Christ Who from His knees taught humanity how to practice sacrifice and praise by the knowledge of God’s Word learning every day His Words of His Gospel as described in Luke 4:21, “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” Here we find Christ teaching us how to pray to the Father of all unafraid to instigate prayer aloud anytime, anyplace and anywhere asking complete strangers to join you. Here we find Christ teaching us to “confess His Name” in proclaiming the Gospel to every living thing in every nook and cranny God’s amazing world has to visit. Please don’t neglect the act of service in the midst of confusing choices blinding parents and child alike from the act of purity to embrace Christ’s love. The difficult choices are going to be made to overcome sin in liberty, libation and lust by offering sacrifice and praise sharing more than financial ability but the God-given energy to practice, pray and proclaim the Truth of God’s love by charity. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we continually offer sacrifice and praise in the midst of our confusing choices as a Child of God. Praying for the Emmaus Team of South Carolina and Harvard IL. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop, stay strong in Christ we pray. Day Two of a Novena of Prayers for a teenager name Monica. Prayers for Marco. LORD, help us to let go of “stuff” to truly “serve.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Romans 8:28

 

Giving whatever we enjoyably gain– Hebrews 13:15-21

 

We must strive through Jesus

Continual offer of sacrifice and praise

By the Fruit of our Lips every moment

Every day sharing to confess His Name

 

Neglecting not the good of sharing

Giving whatever we enjoyably gain

Sacrifices of love from caring

Pleased is the God of love sharing pain

 

Leaders must be obeyed deferring all to them

They keep watch over you one day to defend

Praying it is fulfilled in joy not sorrow’s contend

No advantage to you to be a borrower’s friend

 

Up from the dead our God of Peace gives

The Great Shepherd of sheep Who Eternally lives

Cleansing by the Blood of the Eternal Covenant Willed

Through Jesus Christ we give glory our Redemption truly fulfilled

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
