Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son

Wig’s Word of God Today 3-26-2011

Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son. Luke 15:21
Because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found. Luke 15:24
Micah 7:14-15, 18-20, Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 9-10, 11-12 & Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
Today I am in Gainesville to attend a funeral of life-long friend who died at the age of 48 of liver and kidney failure. His life will be celebrated today as the one who came home to his Father and now is resting in His arms of safety. As Micah reminds us today in our readings, my friend as all of us are special to God in our own divine plan to accomplish His Will receiving the forgiveness promised by His Son’s death on a Cross. “Who is there like you, the God who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of His inheritance; Who does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency.” Micah 7:18
The Parable of the Lost Sheep is a familiar story who many of us have learned to embrace in our lives. The story celebrates the return of the lost sinner where God opens His arms of forgiveness through His Son’s obedience to His Will. No matter how far we stray off the path of life filling ourselves with lust, drunkenness and sin, our LORD will always welcome us back with a celebration unlike any we have ever experienced. He will guide you to become all you can for His Will to accomplish a Divine Plan that will celebrate your love of loving His Son Christ Jesus. My friend Brett Henley is being celebrated today as a compassionate, smiling and embracing friend of Jesus. As all of us, he will be welcomed home by his repentance and belief in our LORD Jesus Christ. Let us rejoice and be glad for anyone who finds his/her way home to the Eternal Glory of the Father. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today for the soul of all who are lost and have yet to be found. We pray they find their way back home by following the Light of Christ in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,

Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”

He Was Truly Lost but Now He is Found

A father gave all to his sons to feel
The love of God for work and zeal
The two were given all from his work
m>One gathered his stuff to exit and look
He left his home to far off lands
Spending his inheritance on sinful sands
Waking one day to see he was broke

His sinful ways stole his father’s yoke
Gathering his things he ventured back home
Stating he would repent and ask forgiveness sown

His father embraced him and covered him in silk
Once he was lost but now he is honey and milk
Fit for embracing as a son who repents
God’s forgiveness will never be spent
Once he was dead his life without sound
He was truly lost but now he is found

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
