But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
Sin embargo, hay muchos miembros, pero un solo cuerpo. Y el ojo no puede decirle a la mano: “No te necesito;” ni tampoco la cabeza a los pies: “No los necesito.” Por el contrario, la verdad es que los miembros del cuerpo que parecen ser los más débiles, son los más necesarios; y las partes del cuerpo que estimamos menos honrosas, a éstas las vestimos con más honra. Así que las partes que consideramos más íntimas, reciben un trato más honroso, ya que nuestras partes presentables no lo necesitan. Pero así formó Dios el cuerpo, dando mayor honra a la parte que carecía de ella, a fin de que en el cuerpo no haya división, sino que los miembros tengan el mismo cuidado unos por otros.
Sometimes we think everyone in the church should be just like us. What makes us the right ones? Everyone in the church body has their place and their uses. No matter what you consider their downfalls, they are needed. Do we, instead of looking at their downfalls, look in the mirror at our own downfalls? We are one body and the body has many members, none of whom are the same, but we need each other. If you are the nose, you still owe respect to the little finger.
On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, he should come to Me, and drink! The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”
Y en el último día, el gran día de la fiesta, Jesús puesto en pie, exclamó en alta voz, diciendo: Si alguno tiene sed, que venga a mí y beba. El que cree en mí, como ha dicho la Escritura: “De lo más profundo de su ser brotarán ríos de agua viva.
Jesus made it so simple by coming to Earth, but we seem to want to still make it so difficult. All we need do is accept Him and drink of His waters. That is all.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Porque nuestra lucha no es contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los poderes de este mundo de tinieblas, contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestiales
We must always remember this scripture when we are tempted to argue or debate against people who are lost. We are not battling against people, but against forces that control them. We can only defeat these forces through prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Give the battle to God, and you will win!
And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.
Por tanto, ahora vosotros tenéis también aflicción; pero yo os veré otra vez, y vuestro corazón se alegrará, y nadie os quitará vuestro gozo.
There is sorrow and grief in this world, but when we have Jesus as our Lord and Savior, these sorrows are just for a short time. We have Him to look toward and forward to. Joy is coming and soon!
17Even though the fig tree does not blossom,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even if the olive harvest fails,
and the fields produce nothing edible;
even if the flock is snatched from the sheepfold,
and there is no herd in the stalls—
18as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.
I will find my joy in the God who delivers me.
19The LORD God is my strength—
he will make my feet like those of a deer,
equipping me to tread on my mountain heights.
17 Aunque la higuera no florezca, ni haya fruto en las vides; aunque falte el fruto del olivo, y los labrados no den mantenimiento; y las ovejas sean quitadas del redil, y no haya vacas en los corrales; 18 con todo, yo me alegraré en Jehová, y me gozaré en el Dios de mi salvación. 19 Jehová el Señor es mi fortaleza, Él hará mis pies como de ciervas, y me hará andar sobre mis alturas. (Al principal de los cantores, sobre mis instrumentos de cuerdas)
No matter what is happening around us, if we have our trust in God, He will be our refuge. He will keep us in hard times, but we must always trust Him, showing our faith even in times of prosperity. God has given us all the tools and the way. We must just rely on Him and His goodness will shine.
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
PORQUE LOS OJOS DEL SEÑOR ESTAN SOBRE LOS JUSTOS, Y SUS OIDOS ATENTOS A SUS ORACIONES; PERO EL ROSTRO DEL SEÑOR ESTA CONTRA LOS QUE HACEN EL MAL.
He is always watching, hearing and knowing. He is with us. He knows our hearts and intentions. Trusting in God is our priority, because He has it all under control, even when it may not seem so.
“For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away life, but plans ways so that the banished one will not be cast out from him.
Pues ciertamente moriremos; somos como el agua derramada en tierra que no se vuelve a recoger. Pero Dios no quita la vida, sino designa medios para que el desterrado no sea alejado de él.
God cares about His people. Yes, we will die, but He wants the very best for us both on Earth and after. He is not the one who put death upon us, we do it to ourselves. Pour your cares out upon Him, for He cares for you.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
Bienaventurado el hombre que persevera bajo la prueba, porque una vez que ha sido aprobado, recibirá la corona de la vida que el Señor ha prometido a los que le aman.
Trials and temptations will come. If we stand and use God’s Word as the weapon it is meant to be, we can and will overcome. The Crown of Life is within reach. God has given us the tools and the way. Let’s gain life, not death.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”
En verdad, en verdad os digo: el que recibe al que yo envíe, me recibe a mí; y el que me recibe a mí, recibe al que me envió.
It is quite clear here; if a person doesn’t accept Jesus, they do not accept God the Father. Many people say they worship God, but do not claim Jesus. They have an awakening coming. The god they are claiming is therefore not God the Father, because the don’t accept Jesus. If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord, now is the time.
10For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
11And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
13In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
10 Porque éste es el pacto que haré con la casa de Israel, después de aquellos días, dice el Señor: Pondré mis leyes en sus mentes, y sobre sus corazones las escribiré; y seré a ellos por Dios, y ellos me serán a mí por pueblo: 11 Y ninguno enseñará a su prójimo, ni ninguno a su hermano, diciendo: Conoce al Señor: Porque todos me conocerán, desde el menor de ellos hasta el mayor. 12 Porque seré propicio a sus injusticias, y de sus pecados y de sus iniquidades no me acordaré más. 13 Y al decir: Nuevo pacto, da por viejo al primero; y lo que es dado por viejo y se envejece, cerca está a desvanecerse.
What a grand day that will be! Every person will know Jesus as Lord and there will be no need to preach and teach. God wants this for all of us. The beauty and love will flow like rivers. Oh, I am ready, Come Jesus, come!
