Whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant

Wig’s Word of God Today 3-23-2011

Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many. Matthew 20: 26b-28
Jeremiah 18:18-20, Psalm 31:5-6, 14, 15-16 & Matthew 20:17-28
The Father has prepared a place for all of us in Heaven who believe His Son has prepared a Way for those who embrace Him as the True and Only Way to get to Eternal Life. Jesus explained to the mother who wished her two sons will sit on His right and left in heaven that it was not His to give away as the other 10 disciples became upset and bitter. “He replied, ‘My cup you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left (, this) is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.’ When the ten heard this, they became indignant at the two brothers.” Matthew 20:23-24
There is a lot to be said by His reply because it shows us the importance of serving here in earth is not about position and status but serving the less fortunate than you and giving your all to proclaiming the Gospel providing faith, charity and love to the lonely, the sick and dying and the hungry and homeless. Establish in your heart the need to be giving not worrying about where you will sit in Heaven but how you will share Christ’s love here on earth. In the eyes of the needy you will find Christ’s smile of forgiveness and love. Loving your love of Christ will open your eyes to His Truth providing faith to those who need His love the most sharing a roadmap to His Eternal Kingdom. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear Heavenly King, we pray today for the soul of Brett Henley who passed on to Your care yesterday at the age of 48. May his wife Erica and family find peace knowing Your Truth embraces his soul. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,

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

Sin’s Ugliness He Paid

Jesus led them to His Fate
God given to relate
The sins of humanity to gain
Every nail dripping blood of His pain

I must suffer for all
Was Christ’s true call
Scourged and spit on
Nailed to a Cross

He will rise in three days
Came the reply he would raise
His Redemption from haze
Sin’s ugliness He paid

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
