What is my reward then? That preaching the gospel, I may deliver the gospel without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For whereas I was free as to all, I made myself the servant of all, that I might gain the more.
¿Cuál es, entonces, mi recompensa? Que al predicar el evangelio, pueda ofrecerlo gratuitamente sin hacer pleno uso de mi derecho en el evangelio. Porque aunque soy libre de todos, de todos me he hecho esclavo para ganar al mayor número posible.
Our reward is watching more come to the knowledge that their only way to salvation is Jesus Christ. We don’t ask payment, nor goods, we just want Jesus and our Father God glorified and worshiped. We are not masters if we show the way, we are servants. Let’s serve our fellow man.
I want to lift up Father God, those who lost loved ones in the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. Please comfort them. We do not understand why, but you know Lord. Our trust is in You. Let your Kingdom come.
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man does, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free
Servid de buena voluntad, como al Señor y no a los hombres, sabiendo que cualquier cosa buena que cada uno haga, esto recibirá del Señor, sea siervo o sea libre.
Sometimes it may seem a hard thing to do service to others. They may seem ungrateful or even evil, but if we live by this scripture, it will be much easier. Put Jesus’ face on the person you are helping and see how easy it is.
5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
5 Siervos, obedeced a vuestros amos en la tierra, con temor y temblor, con la sinceridad de vuestro corazón, como a Cristo; 6 no para ser vistos, como los que quieren agradar a los hombres, sino como siervos de Cristo, haciendo de corazón la voluntad de Dios. 7 Servid de buena voluntad, como al Señor y no a los hombres, 8 sabiendo que cualquier cosa buena que cada uno haga, esto recibirá del Señor, sea siervo o sea libre.
No matter if what are employers or government officials are saying, whether we think wrong or right, we need to obey their laws. It is they that will have to answer to God if they are wrong. So many Christians think it is ok to break laws if they don’t seem to line up to God’s word. The Bible teaches us differently here. Let God’s Spirit guide you and you will know the truth.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then are you Abraham’s descendants, and heirs according to the promise.
No hay judío ni griego; no hay esclavo ni libre; no hay hombre ni mujer; porque todos sois uno en Cristo Jesús. Y si sois de Cristo, entonces sois descendencia de Abraham, herederos según la promesa.
God doesn’t look at our outward appearance, He looks at our inner appearance. Are we truly believing in Him and His promises? Do we believe in Jesus? This is the full measure. We don’t need other people to judge us, because we judge ourselves. The promises of our Lord are true and righteous. Will we stand on them or go the way of the world? It is a decision we must each make; I pray that yours is the correct one.
But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.
Pero gracias a Dios, que aunque erais esclavos del pecado, os hicisteis obedientes de corazón a aquella forma de enseñanza a la que fuisteis entregados; y habiendo sido libertados del pecado, os habéis hecho siervos de la justicia.
I look at my past and now and I realize this verse was for me today. Thanks be to God! Are you all with me? Jesus ransomed us!
