We glorify God by making disciples of all nations. ========== Connection Card https://istrouma.org/myinfo July 10, 2022 | Tim Keith "Pure in Heart” Matthew 5:8 ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:1-8‬‬ When he saw the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to teach them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the humble, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Open Your Heart Cleanse Your Heart Positional Purity Conditional Purity We can't see God clearly when our hearts are stained by sin. “Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? Psalm 24:3-4 Guard Your Heart Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness. ” Luke 11:34 ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭4:20-27‬‬ My son, pay attention to my words; listen closely to my sayings. Don't lose sight of them; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to one's whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life. Don't let your mouth speak dishonestly, and don't let your lips talk deviously. Let your eyes look forward; fix your gaze straight ahead. Carefully consider the path for your feet, and all your ways will be established. Don't turn to the right or to the left; keep your feet away from evil. “Let us behave properly in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality.” Romans 13:13 But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you. Ephesians 5:3 “How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to God's word.” Psalm 119:9 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Psalm 51:10.

We glorify God by making disciples of all nations. ========== Connection Card https://istrouma.org/myinfo April 17, 2022 | Tim Keith "The Greatest Question Ever Asked" What should I do with Jesus? His own Strife: ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:18‬‬ For he knew it was because of envy that they had handed him over. His own Wife: ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:24‬‬ When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that a riot was starting instead, he took some water, washed his hands in front of the crowd, and said, “I am innocent of this man's blood. See to it yourselves!” ‭‭John‬ ‭18:37-38‬‬ “You are a king then?” Pilate asked. “You say that I'm a king,” Jesus replied. “I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” “What is truth?” said Pilate. After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again and told them, “I find no grounds for charging him. He was afraid of other's opinions: ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:20‬‬ The chief priests and the elders, however, persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to execute Jesus. He was afraid of losing his possessions: ‭‭John‬ ‭19:12‬‬ From that moment Pilate kept trying to release him. But the Jews shouted, “If you release this man, you are not Caesar's friend. Anyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar!” He was afraid of making the decision: He tried to Do Nothing: John 18:31 --- “you take him and judge him” He tried to Defer to someone else: Luke 23:7 --- “he sent him to Herod” He tried to Declare something positive: Luke 23:14-15 ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:21‬‬ For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. ‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:39‬‬ Then one of the criminals hanging there began to yell insults at him: “Aren't you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:40-43‬‬ But the other answered, rebuking him: “Don't you even fear God, since you are undergoing the same punishment? We are punished justly, because we're getting back what we deserve for the things we did, but this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” 1. He loves everybody / He came for everybody 2. The ONLY way to come to Jesus is to understand that you are a sinner in need of a Savior. 3. You must answer the question: What will I do with Jesus?

Welcome! We're glad you've joined us today for our Sunday morning worship service! For more information about Istrouma, go to istrouma.org or contact us at info@istrouma.org. We glorify God by making disciples of all nations. ========== Connection Card https://istrouma.org/myinfo February 13, 2021 | Tim Keith "Have You Been Buried?" Colossians 2:8-15 ‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:12‬‬ There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭3:19‬‬ Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped out, ‭‭Luke‬ ‭13:3‬‬ No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well. ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:8-15‬‬ Be careful that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit based on human tradition, based on the elements of the world, rather than Christ. For the entire fullness of God's nature dwells bodily in Christ, and you have been filled by him, who is the head over every ruler and authority. You were also circumcised in him with a circumcision not done with hands, by putting off the body of flesh, in the circumcision of Christ, when you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, he made you alive with him and forgave us all our trespasses. He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it away by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; he triumphed over them in him. 1. Baptism by the Holy Spirit ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:13-14‬‬ In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory. 2. Baptism by Water ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:12‬‬ when you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. Jesus' Example of Baptism ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:13-17‬‬ Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me?” Jesus answered him, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John allowed him to be baptized. When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭26:36-39‬‬ Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he told the disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” Taking along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. He said to them, “I am deeply grieved to the point of death. Remain here and stay awake with me.” Going a little farther, he fell facedown and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:10‬‬ As soon as he came up out of the water, he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. "baptizo" = to dip, immerse Jesus' Command for Baptism ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:19-20‬‬ Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:17‬‬ Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. Want to receive weekly announcements in your inbox each week?

Porque si creemos que Jesús murió y resucitó, así también traerá Dios con Jesús a los que durmieron en él. Por lo cual os decimos esto en palabra del Señor: que nosotros que vivimos, que habremos quedado hasta la venida del Señor, no precederemos a los que durmieron. Porque el Señor mismo con voz de mando, con voz de arcángel, y con trompeta de Dios, descenderá del cielo; y los muertos en Cristo resucitarán primero. Luego nosotros los que vivimos, los que hayamos quedado, seremos arrebatados juntamente con ellos en las nubes para recibir al Señor en el aire, y así estaremos siempre con el Señor. Por tanto, alentaos los unos a los otros con estas palabras. ‭‭1 Tesalonicenses‬ ‭5:1-11‬‬ Pero acerca de los tiempos y de las ocasiones, no tenéis necesidad, hermanos, de que yo os escriba. Porque vosotros sabéis perfectamente que el día del Señor vendrá así como ladrón en la noche; que cuando digan: Paz y seguridad, entonces vendrá sobre ellos destrucción repentina, como los dolores a la mujer encinta, y no escaparán. Mas vosotros, hermanos, no estáis en tinieblas, para que aquel día os sorprenda como ladrón. Porque todos vosotros sois hijos de luz e hijos del día; no somos de la noche ni de las tinieblas. Por tanto, no durmamos como los demás, sino velemos y seamos sobrios. Pues los que duermen, de noche duermen, y los que se embriagan, de noche se embriagan. Pero nosotros, que somos del día, seamos sobrios, habiéndonos vestido con la coraza de fe y de amor, y con la esperanza de salvación como yelmo. Porque no nos ha puesto Dios para ira, sino para alcanzar salvación por medio de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, quien murió por nosotros para que ya sea que velemos, o que durmamos, vivamos juntamente con él. Por lo cual, animaos unos a otros, y edificaos unos a otros, así como lo hacéis. ÁNIMO Y CONSOLACIÓN: 1. La Esperanza de la Vida después de la muerte 2. La palabra de esperanza es que Cristo es la Resurrección y la vida 3. La Esperanza y el llamado ESPERANZA DEL REGRESO GLORIOSO Y SORPRENDENTE DE NUESTRO SEÑOR: 1.

We glorify God by making disciples of all nations. ========== Connection Card https://istrouma.org/myinfo February 06, 2021 | Tim Keith "What do you do when you can stand it no longer?" 1 Thessalonians 3 & 4 ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:1-5‬‬ Therefore, when we could no longer stand it, we thought it was better to be left alone in Athens. And we sent Timothy, our brother and God's coworker in the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you concerning your faith, so that no one will be shaken by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are appointed to this. In fact, when we were with you, we told you in advance that we were going to experience affliction, and as you know, it happened. For this reason, when I could no longer stand it, I also sent him to find out about your faith, fearing that the tempter had tempted you and that our labor might be for nothing. ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:1-2‬‬ Additionally then, brothers and sisters, we ask and encourage you in the Lord Jesus, that as you have received instruction from us on how you should live and please God — as you are doing  — do this even more. For you know what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus. You Keep Going... (3:1) You Keep Serving (3:2-3) You Keep the Faith (4:1-2) ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:8‬‬ For now we live, if you stand firm in the Lord. ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:7‬‬ For we walk by faith, not by sight. ‭‭James‬ ‭2:17-18‬‬ In the same way faith, if it does not have works, is dead by itself. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without works, and I will show you faith by my works. Want to receive weekly announcements in your inbox each week?

We recall, in the presence of our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, in the Holy Spirit, and with full assurance. You know how we lived among you for your benefit, and you yourselves became imitators of us and of the Lord when, in spite of severe persecution, you welcomed the message with joy from the Holy Spirit. As a result, you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. For the word of the Lord rang out from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place that your faith in God has gone out. Therefore, we don't need to say anything, for they themselves report what kind of reception we had from you: how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead — Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. 1. They Lived It Out With FAITH (v. 3,8,9) ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:6‬‬ and you yourselves became imitators of us and of the Lord when, in spite of severe persecution, you welcomed the message with joy from the Holy Spirit. 2. They Shouted It Out With LOVE (v. 3, 8, 9) v.8 – the Lord's message rang out from you… John 13:35, Jesus said, Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples. 3. They Waited It Out With HOPE ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:3‬‬ We recall, in the presence of our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor motivated by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:9-10‬‬ for they themselves report what kind of reception we had from you: how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead — Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. *The Rapture *The Resurrection *The Rescue Hope Changes Your Focus. A Finish-Line Focus brings clarity to all of life.

As usual, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Messiah to suffer and rise from the dead: “This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Messiah.” Some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, including a large number of God-fearing Greeks, as well as a number of the leading women. But the Jews became jealous, and they brought together some wicked men from the marketplace, formed a mob, and started a riot in the city. Attacking Jason's house, they searched for them to bring them out to the public assembly. When they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here too, and Jason has welcomed them. They are all acting contrary to Caesar's decrees, saying that there is another king — Jesus.” The crowd and city officials who heard these things were upset. After taking a security bond from Jason and the others, they released them. ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:1‬‬ Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy: To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to you and peace. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” Luke 9:23-24, “If anyone wants to follow Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily (die daily), and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it.” The Gospel Transforms Who You Are (v.1b) To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ The Gospel Transforms How You Live (v.1b) “THE church at Thessalonica…” The Gospel Motivates You To Go and Tell ‭‭Acts‬ ‭17:1-4‬‬ After they passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue.

Matthew 22:36-40 ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭90:10‬‬ Our lives last seventy years or, if we are strong, eighty years. Even the best of them are struggle and sorrow; indeed, they pass quickly and we fly away.

We have also obtained access through him by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly. For rarely will someone die for a just person — though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die. But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. How much more then, since we have now been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from wrath. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, then how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life. And not only that, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received this reconciliation.

This first registration took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So everyone went to be registered, each to his own town. Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family line of David, to be registered along with Mary, who was engaged to him and was pregnant. While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. Then she gave birth to her firstborn son, and she wrapped him tightly in cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Don't be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today in the city of David a Savior was born for you, who is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be the sign for you: You will find a baby wrapped tightly in cloth and lying in a manger.” Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying: Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people he favors! When the angels had left them and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let's go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” They hurried off and found both Mary and Joseph, and the baby who was lying in the manger. After seeing them, they reported the message they were told about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary was treasuring up all these things in her heart and meditating on them. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had seen and heard, which were just as they had been told. Why did God send the angel to the shepherds? The Good Shepherd was coming ‭‭John‬ ‭10:7-9‬‬ Jesus said again, “Truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn't listen to them. I am the gate. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will come in and go out and find pasture. ‭‭John‬ ‭14:6‬‬ Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ‭‭John‬ ‭10:11‬‬ “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The Lamb of God was coming ‭‭John‬ ‭1:29‬‬ The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! The Savior of the world was coming for ALL “You save the humble, but Your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.” 2 Sam. 22:28 “This is what the Lord says: ‘This is the one I esteem; he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My word.” Isaiah 66:1 “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” Mt 23:12 "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. – 1 Peter 5:5-6 What can we learn from the shepherds? Go to Jesus (Now!) ‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:15-16‬‬ When the angels had left them and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let's go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” They hurried off and found both Mary and Joseph, and the baby who was lying in the manger. Tell the Christmas story ‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:17-18‬‬ After seeing them, they reported the message they were told about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Rejoice in the goodness of God ‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:20‬‬ The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had seen and heard, which were just as they had been told.

So her husband, Joseph, being a righteous man, and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly. But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don't be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: See, the virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name him Immanuel, which is translated “God is with us.” When Joseph woke up, he did as the Lord's angel had commanded him. He married her but did not have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son. And he named him Jesus. 1. He Gets Your Attention v. 20-21 2. He Changes Your Plans v.21-23 3. He Tests Your Faith v.24-25 ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬‬ Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. 4. He Blesses Your Life v.21 ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬‬ But as it is written, What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human heart has conceived — God has prepared these things for those who love him.

But they had no children because Elizabeth could not conceive, and both of them were well along in years. 1.

And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers.

For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: “‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'” Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him.” After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way. 1. A disturbed response When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him (v3). 2. A disinterested response …and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: “‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel'” (vv4-6). 3.

You have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and you have found them to be liars.

Yet you do have this: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. “Let anyone who has ears to hear listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.

Christians have no sense of urgency to reach lost people. 2. Church membership today is more about getting my needs met rather than reaching the lost. 3.

Porque no tenemos lucha contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los gobernadores de las tinieblas de este siglo, contra huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestes.

So don't be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Examine Your Heart v.15 ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:1-17‬‬ Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children, and walk in love, as Christ also loved us and gave himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God. But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints. Obscene and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks. For know and recognize this: Every sexually immoral or impure or greedy person, who is an idolater, does not have an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for God's wrath is coming on the disobedient because of these things. Therefore, do not become their partners. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light  —  for the fruit of the light consists of all goodness, righteousness, and truth  —  testing what is pleasing to the Lord. Don't participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what is done by them in secret. Everything exposed by the light is made visible, for what makes everything visible is light. Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk — not as unwise people but as wise —  making the most of the time, because the days are evil. So don't be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.

Guard Your Heart v.16-17 ‭‭Luke‬ ‭11:34‬‬ Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭4:23‬‬ Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭4:23-27‬‬ Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life. Don't let your mouth speak dishonestly, and don't let your lips talk deviously. Let your eyes look forward; fix your gaze straight ahead. Carefully consider the path for your feet, and all your ways will be established. Don't turn to the right or to the left; keep your feet away from evil. ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:4‬‬ Obscene and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks. ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:3‬‬ But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints. ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:9‬‬ How can a young man keep his way pure?

Las casadas estén sujetas a sus propios maridos, como al Señor; porque el marido es cabeza de la mujer, así como Cristo es cabeza de la iglesia, la cual es su cuerpo, y él es su Salvador. Así que, como la iglesia está sujeta a Cristo, así también las casadas lo estén a sus maridos en todo. Maridos, amad a vuestras mujeres, así como Cristo amó a la iglesia, y se entregó a sí mismo por ella, para santificarla, habiéndola purificado en el lavamiento del agua por la palabra, a fin de presentársela a sí mismo, una iglesia gloriosa, que no tuviese mancha ni arruga ni cosa semejante, sino que fuese santa y sin mancha. Así también los maridos deben amar a sus mujeres como a sus mismos cuerpos. El que ama a su mujer, a sí mismo se ama. Porque nadie aborreció jamás a su propia carne, sino que la sustenta y la cuida, como también Cristo a la iglesia, porque somos miembros de su cuerpo, de su carne y de sus huesos. Por esto dejará el hombre a su padre y a su madre, y se unirá a su mujer, y los dos serán una sola carne. Grande es este misterio; mas yo digo esto respecto de Cristo y de la iglesia. ‭‭Efesios‬ ‭6:1-9‬‬ Hijos, obedeced en el Señor a vuestros padres, porque esto es justo. Honra a tu padre y a tu madre, que es el primer mandamiento con promesa; para que te vaya bien, y seas de larga vida sobre la tierra. Y vosotros, padres, no provoquéis a ira a vuestros hijos, sino criadlos en disciplina y amonestación del Señor. Siervos, obedeced a vuestros amos terrenales con temor y temblor, con sencillez de vuestro corazón, como a Cristo; no sirviendo al ojo, como los que quieren agradar a los hombres, sino como siervos de Cristo, de corazón haciendo la voluntad de Dios; sirviendo de buena voluntad, como al Señor y no a los hombres, sabiendo que el bien que cada uno hiciere, ese recibirá del Señor, sea siervo o sea libre. Y vosotros, amos, haced con ellos lo mismo, dejando las amenazas, sabiendo que el Señor de ellos y vuestro está en los cielos, y que para él no hay acepción de personas. 1.

Ephesians 4:17-24 ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:17-24‬‬ Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thoughts. They are darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them and because of the hardness of their hearts. They became callous and gave themselves over to promiscuity for the practice of every kind of impurity with a desire for more and more. But that is not how you came to know Christ, assuming you heard about him and were taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus, to take off your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires, to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, the one created according to God's likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth. Take Off the Old v. 22 ‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:12‬‬ The night is nearly over, and the day is near; so let us discard the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Renew Your Mind v. 23 ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬‬ Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. Put On the New v. 24 ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:9-10‬‬ Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self. You are being renewed in knowledge according to the image of your Creator. Want to receive weekly announcements in your inbox each week?

There is one body and one Spirit  — just as you were called to one hope at your calling —  one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit. But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into him who is the head  — Christ. From him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building itself up in love by the proper working of each individual part.

We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath as the others were also. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love that he had for us, made us alive with Christ even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace! He also raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavens in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might display the immeasurable riches of his grace through his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift —  not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.

Satan (John 8:44) ‭‭John‬ ‭8:44‬‬ You are of your father the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies. ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭12:9-10‬‬ So the great dragon was thrown out — the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say, The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have now come, because the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been thrown down. ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:11‬‬ Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. ‭‭James‬ ‭4:7‬‬ Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 4 Reasons Why We Doubt Our Salvation 3. Sin (Psalm 66:18) ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭66:18‬‬ If I had been aware of malice in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭38:3-4‬‬ There is no soundness in my body because of your indignation; there is no health in my bones because of my sin. For my iniquities have flooded over my head; they are a burden too heavy for me to bear. 4 Reasons Why We Doubt Our Salvation 4. Silence (Revelation 3:20) ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:20‬‬ See! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32:3-4‬‬ When I kept silent, my bones became brittle from my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my strength was drained as in the summer's heat.Selah ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:9-11‬‬ How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping your word.

Por esta causa también yo, habiendo oído de vuestra fe en el Señor Jesús, y de vuestro amor para con todos los santos, no ceso de dar gracias por vosotros, haciendo memoria de vosotros en mis oraciones, para que el Dios de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, el Padre de gloria, os dé espíritu de sabiduría y de revelación en el conocimiento de él, alumbrando los ojos de vuestro entendimiento, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza a que él os ha llamado, y cuáles las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, y cuál la supereminente grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, según la operación del poder de su fuerza, la cual operó en Cristo, resucitándole de los muertos y sentándole a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, sobre todo principado y autoridad y poder y señorío, y sobre todo nombre que se nombra, no solo en este siglo, sino también en el venidero; y sometió todas las cosas bajo sus pies, y lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de Aquel que todo lo llena en todo. 1.
