Sed Compasivos

Lucas 6:27-36 (NVI)

27 Pero a vosotros que me escucháis os digo: Amad a vuestros enemigos, haced bien a quienes os odian, 

28 bendecid a quienes os maldicen, orad por quienes os maltratan. 

29 Si alguien te pega en una mejilla, vuélvele también la otra. Si alguien te quita la camisa, no le impidas que se lleve también la capa. 

30 Dale a todo el que te pida y, si alguien se lleva lo que es tuyo, no se lo reclames. 

31 Tratad a los demás tal y como queréis que ellos os traten a vosotros.

32 ¿Qué mérito tenéis al amar a quienes os aman? Aun los pecadores hacen así. 

33 ¿Y qué mérito tenéis al hacer bien a quienes os hacen bien? Aun los pecadores actúan así. 

34 ¿Y qué mérito tenéis al dar prestado a quienes pueden corresponderos? Aun los pecadores se prestan entre sí, esperando recibir el mismo trato. 

35 Vosotros, por el contrario, amad a vuestros enemigos, hacedles bien y dadles prestado sin esperar nada a cambio. Así tendréis una gran recompensa y seréis hijos del Altísimo, porque él es bondadoso con los ingratos y malvados. 

36 Sed compasivos, así como vuestro Padre es compasivo.

Be Merciful

Luke 6:27-36 (NKJV)

27 But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 

28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 

29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 

30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 

31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

32 But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 

33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 

34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 

35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 

36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Justo Es Alabarlo

Salmo 147:1-11 (NVI)

1 ¡Aleluya! ¡Alabado sea el Señor ! ¡Cuán bueno es cantar salmos a nuestro Dios, cuán agradable y justo es alabarlo!

2 El Señor reconstruye Jerusalén y reúne a los exiliados de Israel;

3 restaura a los de corazón quebrantado y cubre con vendas sus heridas.

4 Él determina el número de las estrellas y a todas ellas les pone nombre .

5 Excelso es nuestro Señor, y grande su poder; su entendimiento es infinito;

6 El Señor sostiene a los pobres, pero hace morder el polvo a los impíos.

7 Cantad al Señor con gratitud; cantad salmos a nuestro Dios al son del arpa.

8 Él cubre de nubes el cielo, envía la lluvia sobre la tierra y hace crecer la hierba en los montes.

9 Él alimenta a los ganados y a las crías de los cuervos cuando graznan.

10 El Señor no se deleita en los bríos del caballo, ni se complace en la fuerza del hombre ,

11 sino que se complace en los que le temen, en los que confían en su gran amor.

Praise Is Beautiful

Psalms 147:1-11 (NVI)

1 Praise the Lord ! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

4 He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.

5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.

6 The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God,

8 Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.

9 He gives to the beast its food, And to the young ravens that cry.

10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man.

11 The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.

Cada uno tenga cuidado de cómo construye.

1 Corintios 3:9-17 (NVI)

9 En efecto, nosotros somos colaboradores al servicio de Dios; y vosotros sois el campo de cultivo de Dios, sois el edificio de Dios.

10 Según la gracia que Dios me ha dado, yo, como maestro constructor, eché los cimientos, y otro construye sobre ellos. Pero cada uno tenga cuidado de cómo construye,

11 porque nadie puede poner un fundamento diferente del que ya está puesto, que es Jesucristo.

12 Si alguien construye sobre este fundamento, ya sea con oro, plata y piedras preciosas, o con madera, heno y paja,

13 su obra se mostrará tal cual es, pues el día del juicio la dejará al descubierto. El fuego la dará a conocer, y pondrá a prueba la calidad del trabajo de cada uno.

14 Si lo que alguien ha construido permanece, recibirá su recompensa,

15 pero, si su obra es consumida por las llamas, él sufrirá pérdida. Será salvo, pero como quien pasa por el fuego.

16 ¿No sabéis que sois templo de Dios y que el Espíritu de Dios habita en vosotros?

17 Si alguno destruye el templo de Dios, él mismo será destruido por Dios; porque el templo de Dios es sagrado, y vosotros sois ese templo.

Let each one take heed how he builds.

I Corinthians 3:9-17 (NVI)

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.

11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

“O Death, where is your sting?”

I Corinthians 15:50-57 (NKJV)

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—

52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

55 “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”

56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

«¿Dónde está, oh muerte, tu victoria?»

1 Corintios 15:50-57 (NVI)

50 Os declaro, hermanos, que el cuerpo mortal no puede heredar el reino de Dios, ni lo corruptible puede heredar lo incorruptible.

51 Fijaos bien en el misterio que os voy a revelar: No todos moriremos, pero todos seremos transformados,

52 en un instante, en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, al toque final de la trompeta. Pues sonará la trompeta y los muertos resucitarán con un cuerpo incorruptible, y nosotros seremos transformados.

53 Porque lo corruptible tiene que revestirse de lo incorruptible, y lo mortal, de inmortalidad.

54 Cuando lo corruptible se revista de lo incorruptible, y lo mortal, de inmortalidad, entonces se cumplirá lo que está escrito: «La muerte ha sido devorada por la victoria».

55 «¿Dónde está, oh muerte, tu victoria? ¿Dónde está, oh muerte, tu aguijón?»

56 El aguijón de la muerte es el pecado, y el poder del pecado es la ley.

57 ¡Pero gracias a Dios, que nos da la victoria por medio de nuestro Señor Jesucristo!

Finish The Race

Here’s a bite-sized piece of encouragement from your Bible. Also included is a featured song that is sure to lift your spirit. May your heart and soul be blessed.      –G–

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” –1 Corinthians 9:24-27 KJV

“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” –2 Timothy 4:6-8 KJV

“Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 3:12-14 KJV

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” –Hebrews 12:1-2 KJV

“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” –Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV

“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” –Matthew 10:22 KJV
