‘You must repent,’ Peter answered, ‘and every one of you must be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’ Acts 2:38

 

‘I have seen the LORD,’ and that He had said these things to her. John 20:18b

 

Acts 2:36-41, Psalm 33 & John 20:11-18

 

Peter’s Speech at Pentecost brought about many things for the Disciples. First, they were received warmly by the crowd indicated in the response of Acts 2:37, “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and they asked Peter and the other apostles, “What are we to do, my brothers?” This reaction gave Peter more fuel to capture the second Purpose that motivated them being the Holy Spirit descending upon the apostles preparing them to proclaim the new covenant with its unique gift of the Spirit.

 

Stop and think about the first time you felt the Holy Spirit lift your thoughts, your words and your actions to accomplish what God has intended for you. Maybe it was talking to a stranger about Jesus in a McDonalds. Maybe you felt the Spirit lift you when you were giving your first Emmaus talk. Maybe the Spirit gave you the courage to stop and talk to a homeless man or woman who obviously needed your act of charity. Whatever the Sprit leads you to do, you must practice, pray and preach to give yourself a true preparation to deal with whomever the Spirit leads you to.

 

You will find the Face of Christ in the people placed in your paths of life to accomplish His Will by taking on the Three P’s of Christianity in a moment-by-moment circumstance of surrender. The appearance of Christ to Mary Magdalene signifies His love of her and His Trust she will carry out His request to relay His message to the Apostles. You too will see His face in the people you witness to.

 

This appearance only happens in the Gospel of John whereby John gives the explanation of why Jesus calls the Disciples His brothers. The Father of Jesus will now become the Father of the Disciples because Jesus can give them the Spirit once He Ascends that comes from the Father and they can be reborn as God’s children. “Go to My brothers and tell them, ‘I am going to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.” John 20:17. The Spirit of God dwells in each of us as a Guide of Surrender. We must give our all to God’s Purpose to find His Spirit’s directives in all we do. Amen.

 

Dear LORD, we pray to be fed by Your Spirit by our practice, prayer and preaching. Guide us by Your Spirit to give more and expect less. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

To My God Your God I will commit- John 20:11-18

 

Mary Magdalene stood by the tomb crying

Peering in to see the Truth

Two Angels asked why are you weeping

When the Christ rose as Proof

 

The Proof called to her for seeking

Him at the tomb He has already rose

Not seeing Him fully

He was disguised at first to know

 

Mary Jesus called in remembrance

Of her devotion to the Truth to show

She said Teacher as He said don’t’ hold on to Me

To the Father I must now be obliged to go

 

To your Father and My Father I will sit

To My God Your God I will commit

To the Spirit of Love descending

The Holy Spirit of Him to Wit

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
