for the Life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the Eternal Life that was with the Father

Wig’s Word of God Today 12-27-2010

“for the Life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the Eternal Life that was with the Father” 1 John 1:2

1 John 1:1-4, Psalm 97:1-2, 5-6, 11-12 & John 20:1a and 2-8

What are you doing, when no one is watching?” The words of the song Pure Bride by Leeland ring in my ears as I sit and ponder the weekend’s travels serving the Lord with zealous joy establishing a vessel in which my father, my mother, my brother, my first cousin and many others to see the “Visible Life” I testify to and proclaim for the Eternal Life with the Father. I was truly embraced by how the Spirit moved my father to share hidden emotions that seemed bottled up for 73 years. My entire family flashed before my soul and I was reminded of what amazing lives both sides of my family have lived in the Lord. I remember so many times my Grandma Carter sharing the Lord with me teaching me the Lord’s Prayer. My dad’s parents “Red and Annie Wiggins” were share croppers in Jesup, Georgia living in an old Southern-style Cracker House on stilts with chickens running under the house and sounds and smells of a working farm lingering in the air. These people were hard-working Jesus loving “Country Folk” who studied their Bible every day and lived a life of Christ in complete poverty in a home with no running water.
 
I experienced these things as I was about to begin my first ever sermon at my cousin’s non-denominational church named Eagle Vision Ministries. A sermon about unity from Ephesians 4 and cultivation after repentance from Luke 13. I’ve spoken in front of countless people but I’ve never specifically taught about Unity, Repentance and Cultivation. We must share what came to life for our Salvation where the visible areas of our life mirror the invisible Spirit dwelling from one family to the next. My father’s joy displayed yesterday was an unexpected pleasure in Christ Himself testifying to the Truth exuding from his heart. The people I met and hugged are God-fearing Jesus loving Christians who teach the Word of God to their children each and every day. The “Good News” unites all people in loving their love of Christ to accomplish faith, hope, charity and love.
 
And so we pray: My Lord and My God, a prayer of Thanksgiving for safe travels. We pray today we are visible signs of Your Son’s Truth living a life of complete surrender to Your Will for Your Glory. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
Forgiving Humanity’s Habits
 
Seen in the eyes of many
Seen in the eyes of Truth
The Word of Life made Visible
Redemption for lives to prove
 
Thanksgiving written in safety
Justice and judgment His Throne
The invisible made visible making
Faith forever shown
 
The Tomb was empty
Risen by God to be
Forgiving Humanity’s habits
Disciple saw and believed

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
