Luke 24: 44-48

Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.

 

Y les dijo: Esto es lo que yo os decía cuando todavía estaba con vosotros: que era necesario que se cumpliera todo lo que sobre mí está escrito en la ley de Moisés, en los profetas y en los salmos.  Entonces les abrió la mente para que comprendieran las Escrituras,  y les dijo: Así está escrito, que el Cristo padeciera y resucitara de entre los muertos al tercer día;  y que en su nombre se predicara el arrepentimiento para el perdón de los pecados a todas las naciones, comenzando desde Jerusalén.  Vosotros sois testigos de estas cosas.

 

Jesus made some mighty promises just before He ascended to the Father. It is our duty and desire to pass our blessing onto others. He has given us the will and power to do so. We cannot allow the world to delegate what we preach about Jesus and His mighty love for us. Lets DO IT! Praise our wonderful Lord!

Hebrews 12:1-2

1Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

1 Por tanto, puesto que tenemos en derredor nuestro tan gran nube de testigos, despojémonos también de todo peso y del pecado que tan fácilmente nos envuelve, y corramos con paciencia (perseverancia) la carrera que tenemos por delante, 2 puestos los ojos en Jesús, el autor y consumador de la fe, quien por el gozo puesto delante de El soportó la cruz, despreciando la vergüenza, y se ha sentado a la diestra del trono de Dios.

Sometimes it is easy for us to allow the stress and cares of the world to overtake us and we don’t listen to the Holy Spirit. We are in a race and our goal is to run that race to the best of our ability. How do we do that? We listen to our coach. Who is our coach? Jesus is our coach. He lived it too. He knows what we face and He understands. If you fall, pick yourself up and listen to the coach–run and run. Your faith will give you strength. Look at the prize, because you WILL win if you listen to the coach–JESUS CHRIST.

Hebrews 12:1

Therefore seeing we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily ensnare us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us

Por tanto, puesto que tenemos en derredor nuestro tan gran nube de testigos, despojémonos también de todo peso y del pecado que tan fácilmente nos envuelve, y corramos con paciencia la carrera que tenemos por delante

It is easy to get caught up in how we once were and not what Jesus has blessed us with now. People are watching us, but do we watch ourselves? Are we acting and speaking and writing how Jesus would want us to? I needed this today. Thank You Lord.

Hebrews 10:28-31

28He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

28 Cualquiera que viola la ley de Moisés muere sin misericordia por el testimonio de dos o tres testigos. 29 ¿Cuánto mayor castigo pensáis que merecerá el que ha hollado bajo sus pies al Hijo de Dios, y ha tenido por inmunda la sangre del pacto por la cual fue santificado, y ha ultrajado al Espíritu de gracia? 30 Pues conocemos al que dijo: MIA ES LA VENGANZA, YO PAGARE. Y otra vez: EL SEÑOR JUZGARA A SU PUEBLO. 31 ¡Horrenda cosa es caer en las manos del Dios vivo!

To know God and deny Him is so terrible. How anyone can, just makes me sad. God is going to send His Son soon and judgement will be immediate. God, You are awesome and powerful. Help us to walk in cleanness before You. In Jesus name I pray.
