12 Christ paid the price. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator

On 2nd Corinthians 5.14 - 21 TLA

         If you ask the brothers of the congregation that activity of a Christian find it harder to carry out, many respond: Pray.

And what is prayer?

  I. Prayer is talking to God, to have a personal relationship with Him.
II. Declare His Word in our lives and our family.
III. Tell our anxieties and fears, to save us and help us.
IV. Share with our dreams, our projects.
V. Intercede for those who are in a bad time.
SAW. Entrust our safety and that of our family.
We need to understand how much it cost us to have the opportunity to speak with the Creator of the whole universe. Paul explains very well in his second letter to the Corinthians:
14 A Love of Christ dominates our lives. We know he died for all ...
21 Christ he never sinned. But God treated him as if sin, to declare innocent through Christ.
All the punishment I deserved for my wickedness, fell upon Christ:
Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. Is 53.4 -. 5 NIV

17-19 Now we are united to Christ, we are a new creation. God no longer takes into account our old way of life, but made us start a new life.
         God has freed us from our shame, through the forgiveness of our sins and errors. We have a chance to live in a different way.

And all this comes from God. Before we were enemies, but now, through Christ, we become friends, and has commissioned us to announce to everyone this good news: Through Christ, God forgives our sins and makes peace with everyone.
This is to understand that Christ reconciled us to God and now we're friends of God in Christ, we have the same ministry that Jesus: The others reconcile men with God. How do we do it? others simply telling them that God has a chance.

15 So, if Christ died for us, and we must not live for ourselves but for Christ who died and rose again to give us life.
         The proof of recognition to the sacrifice of Christ for us is the change of lifestyle (repentance): To live to do and think evil, to live to learn to do good.
         For us to have a relationship, Christ died in a gruesome way. No pray and not understand that I have the opportunity to learn to live well in Bible is plainly not give value to the sacrifice of Jesus.
         Christ is the Lamb of God (Jn. 1.29) than with the shedding of their blood took away the sin that separated me from God (Isa. 59.2)
         We need to understand the value it gives to the relationship Christ through prayer, leave to enter the Kingdom only to those who know, ie your friends, they talk (pray) to Him:
21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name (Pastors and Preachers), and in your name drive out demons (Ministers of Liberation) and perform many miracles (powerful ministries)? "23 Then I will tell plainly, "I never knew you. (Never had a personal relationship) Depart from me, you evildoers! (Do not look know is Evil) "Mt. 7.21 - 23. fill of activity in the Church, attend all meetings, to have a successful ministry, none of this helps us if we have a relationship with Jesus.

         Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace; And it will come in handy. 22 Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. 23 If thou return to the Almighty, will be built; You stay away from thy tabernacles. Job 22.21 - 23 RV 60.
