Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.

James 2:17-26

17So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.

18Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”

19You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God.f Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?

21Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was shown to be right with God by his actions when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. 23And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”g He was even called the friend of God.h 24So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone.

25Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. 26Just as the body is dead without breath,i so also faith is dead without good works.

 

17 Así también la fe, si no tiene obras, es muerta en sí misma. 18 Pero alguno dirá: Tú tienes fe, y yo tengo obras; muéstrame tu fe sin tus obras, y yo te mostraré mi fe por mis obras. 19 Tú crees que hay un Dios; bien haces; también los demonios creen y tiemblan. 20 ¿Mas quieres saber, oh hombre vano, que la fe sin obras es muerta? 21 ¿No fue justificado por las obras, Abraham nuestro padre, cuando ofreció a su hijo Isaac sobre el altar? 22 ¿No ves que la fe actuó con sus obras, y que la fe fue perfeccionada por las obras? 23 Y se cumplió la Escritura que dice: Abraham creyó a Dios, y le fue imputado por justicia, y fue llamado: Amigo de Dios. 24 Vosotros veis, pues, que el hombre es justificado por las obras, y no solamente por la fe. 25 Asimismo también Rahab la ramera, ¿no fue justificada por obras, cuando recibió a los mensajeros y los envió por otro camino? 26 Porque como el cuerpo sin el espíritu está muerto, así también la fe sin obras está muerta.

 

There is a lot of meat in this passage. Yes, faith is important, but what are we doing with that faith. Like it says, even demons know that God is real, but they are not saved from hell. Are we bypassing the works? Are we doing what the Holy Spirit calls us to do? Read the passage and let the Holy Spirit work, so that you can work. Do the right things and you will be blessed.

Galatians 2:21

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

No hago nula la gracia de Dios, porque si la justicia viene por medio de la ley, entonces Cristo murió en vano.

“Am I doing this right? Am I doing that right?” Sometimes we get so caught up in the laws, that we forget that no matter what we do, we are not good enough. Billy Graham wasn’t good enough and Mother Teresa wasn’t good enough. It is only God’s grace that makes us good enough. If we listen and heed the Holy Spirit, God will guide us.

2 Corinthians 5:14-17

14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

14 Pues el amor de Cristo nos apremia, habiendo llegado a esta conclusión: que uno murió por todos, por consiguiente, todos murieron; 15 y por todos murió, para que los que viven, ya no vivan para sí, sino para aquel que murió y resucitó por ellos. 16 De manera que nosotros de ahora en adelante ya no conocemos a nadie según la carne; aunque hemos conocido a Cristo según la carne, sin embargo, ahora ya no le conocemos así. 17 De modo que si alguno está en Cristo, nueva criatura es ; las cosas viejas pasaron; he aquí, son hechas nuevas.

Acts 4:10-12

10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

10 sabed todos vosotros, y todo el pueblo de Israel, que en el nombre de Jesucristo el Nazareno, a quien vosotros crucificasteis y a quien Dios resucitó de entre los muertos, por El, este hombre se halla aquí sano delante de vosotros. 11 Este Jesús es la PIEDRA DESECHADA por vosotros LOS CONSTRUCTORES, pero QUE HA VENIDO A SER LA PIEDRA ANGULAR. 12 Y en ningún otro hay salvación, porque no hay otro nombre bajo el cielo dado a los hombres, en el cual podamos ser salvos.

Jesus is the only one that can save us from our own destruction. His is the only name we can call on to wipe sin from us. We must call on Him if we want to be free from the world’s agony.

Colossians 3:1-2

If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Si habéis, pues, resucitado con Cristo, buscad las cosas de arriba, donde está Cristo sentado a la diestra de Dios. Poned la mira en las cosas de arriba, no en las de la tierra.

It is easy to get caught up worrying about bills, our home, our car and many other Earthly possessions. Are we as concerned about God as we are these material things? We need to put God first in all and the other things will fall where they will. It is His honor and Glory that must be magnified. I needed this today–Thank You Father God!

Acts 26:8

Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?

¿Por qué se considera increíble entre vosotros que Dios resucite a los muertos?

Why is it that we think God cannot do something? God can do anything; anything at all. This is where our faith comes to light. Trust God–He can and will do what He knows is best for us.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Pues el Señor mismo descenderá del cielo con voz de mando, con voz de arcángel y con la trompeta de Dios, y los muertos en Cristo se levantarán primero. Entonces nosotros, los que estemos vivos y que permanezcamos, seremos arrebatados juntamente con ellos en las nubes al encuentro del Señor en el aire, y así estaremos con el Señor siempre. Por tanto, confortaos unos a otros con estas palabras.

Hearing and reading these words comfort me; I pray they do you too! What a wondrous day that will be! We have so much to look forward to. Don’t let this world discourage you.

2 Timothy 2:10-13

Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Por tanto, todo lo soporto por amor a los escogidos, para que también ellos obtengan la salvación que está en Cristo Jesús, y con ella gloria eterna. Palabra fiel es ésta : Que si morimos con El, también viviremos con El; si perseveramos, también reinaremos con El; si le negamos, El también nos negará; si somos infieles, El permanece fiel, pues no puede negarse a sí mismo.

We can have and be in total blessedness if we live in Jesus. We can also be in constant pain and agony if we don’t. I don’t comprehend why people would want the second, but many do. Lets show them why it is so much better in Jesus than without. Thanks Jesus!

Proverbs 9:17-18

Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of the grave.

Dulces son las aguas hurtadas, y el pan comido en secreto es sabroso. Pero él no sabe que allí están los muertos, que sus invitados están en las profundidades del Seol.

There are many forms of theft and stealing and it may seem like you are getting somewhere at first, but in the end, it will come back on you. I know firsthand and have asked forgiveness; I have also been stolen from and had people that were even supposedly “close to me” steal from me. I actually feel sorry for them, because it will come back.I long to see the people I care for go to heaven, but living in that way; the end is hell. I pray that these people that steal and rob will turn from their ways and realize exactly what the end of their ways are.
