You Sow to Respond. You Sow to React. You Sow to Rejoice in God’s Word. “The seed sown on the path is the one who hears the Word of the Kingdom without understanding it, and the evil one comes and steals away what was sown in his heart.” Matthew 13:19

You Sow to Respond. You Sow to React. You Sow to Rejoice in God’s Word.

 

The seed sown on the path is the one who hears the Word of the Kingdom without understanding it, and the evil one comes and steals away what was sown in his heart. Matthew 13:19

 

Jeremiah 3:14-17, Jeremiah 31:10, 11-12, 13 & Matthew 13:18-23

 

Jesus describes the four types of persons envisioned to carry His Message of Truth by using the Parable of the Sower of the Seeds. There are those who never accept the Word of the Kingdom by finding the seed sowed on the path they walk on. There are those who believe for a while but fall away because of persecution while walking on rocky ground of nonbelievers. There are those who believe, but in whom the Word is choked by worldly anxiety and the seduction of riches. And finally Christ’s parable of the Sower describes those who respond to the Word and produce fruit abundantly by allowing His Truth to guide their complete surrender.

 

After every Walk to Emmaus retreat weekend, every table leader will call their own candidates from their table and discuss with them how the week has been and if there’s anything they might need prayer for. As I called each yesterday discussing their week, I always ask if they had a chance to pick up the Word of God and make it a part of their daily routine. I always remind them that the evil one is not happy with our Spiritual discoveries from the Emmaus weekend and he’ll try extra hard to make them stumble. In guiding their discussion of God’s Truth, I can steer them to understand how important it is for them to respond to God’s Word in thought, action and deed as described in Matthew 13:23.

 

The seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the Word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.”

 

Respond. React. Rejoice. Amen!

 

So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to be Sowers of Truth by following Christ’s Word. We pray for Julian’s recovery LORD. We pray day seven of a Novena of prayers for Steve’s intentions. We pray for the intentions of Tim Clark and David Haddox who I dedicate my poem to below. We pray for Mesfin Zabrocki and Lucy Moreira to be healed LORD. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

The Mercy of God in His Valleys of Truth- Psalm 23

 

 

 

I lack absolutely nothing

 

By the Shepherd of Life

 

Lying down in green pastures

 

In still waters I’m reborn to ignite

 

 

 

He leads me restoring my soul

 

Only His paths of Truth I find

 

For the sake of His Name I go

 

Allowing my life to be His in kind

 

 

 

The death in valleys I fear not

 

No evil will overcome my belief

 

Comforted by His rod and staff

 

His Truth I eternally conceive

 

 

 

God’s table is set before me

 

As enemies jockey to kill

 

He anoints my head with oil

 

I live according to His Will

 

 

 

As my cup overfloweth

 

Goodness and mercy I pursue

 

My life throughout all my days

 

In His House I live to never undue

 

 

 

The Mercy of God in His Valleys

 

Allow us to live for His Truth

 

In His 23rd Psalm of David

 

God’s Love is forever True

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
