“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

Que Me Haga Lo Que Me Dijiste

Lucas 1:34-38 (NVI)

34 ―¿Cómo podrá suceder esto —le preguntó María al ángel—, puesto que soy virgen?

35 ―El Espíritu Santo vendrá sobre ti, y el poder del Altísimo te cubrirá con su sombra. Así que al santo niño que va a nacer lo llamarán Hijo de Dios.

36 También tu parienta Elisabet va a tener un hijo en su vejez; de hecho, la que decían que era estéril ya está en el sexto mes de embarazo.

37 Porque para Dios no hay nada imposible.

38 ―Aquí tienes a la sierva del Señor —contestó María—. Que él haga conmigo como me has dicho. Después de esto, el ángel la dejó.

Let It Be To Me According To Your Word

Luke 1:34-38 (NKJV)

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “ The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
