They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him
de los que confían en sus bienes y se jactan de la abundancia de sus riquezas? Nadie puede en manera alguna redimir a su hermano, ni dar a Dios rescate por él
Our wealth and material goods mean nothing. They really don’t mean squiddily. God doesn’t care about what we have, but He cares about our hearts. Do we trust Him? Sometimes He allows us not to have so that God can show us the blessings and grace He offers so freely. We need to trust Him. He is really all we need.
For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
Porque por gracia habéis sido salvados por medio de la fe, y esto no de vosotros, sino que es don de Dios; no por obras, para que nadie se gloríe. Porque somos hechura suya, creados en Cristo Jesús para hacer buenas obras, las cuales Dios preparó de antemano para que anduviéramos en ellas.
There is nothing we can do, other than accepting the free gift from God, to get us to heaven. Good works don’t get us there, but good works come when we have Jesus in our heart. We will want to do good, if Jesus is truly in our hearts.
