The price paid by Christ. By Fabian Massa.

 On 2nd Corinthians 5.14 - 21 TLA Translated from Spanish into English by Google Translate.
If you ask the brothers of the congregation that activity of a Christian have a harder carry, many respond: Pray. And what is prayer? Prayer is:

I. Talking to God, to have a personal relationship with Him

II. Declare His Word in our lives and that of 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.
VI. Entrust our security 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 entire Universe. Paul explains it very well in his second letter to the Corinthians:14 A Love of Christ dominates our lives. We know that he died for all ...21 Christ never sinned. But God treated him as if he had sinned, to declare innocent through Christ.All the punishment I deserved for my wickedness, fell on Christ:
Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken, beaten by God, and afflicted. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53.4 - 5 NIV
17-19 Now that we are united to Christ, we are a new creation. God and disregards our old way of life, but made us start a new life.

God has freed us from our shame, through forgiveness of our sins and errors. We have a chance to live differently.

All this is from God. Before we were enemies, but now, through Christ, we have become friends, and we have been asked to announce to everyone the good news: Through Christ, God forgives our sins and makes peace with everyone.

It is understood that Christ reconciled us to God and now we are friends of God in Christ, we have the same ministry that Jesus: The others reconcile men with God. How do we do it? simply telling others that they also have an opportunity God.15 Therefore, if Christ died for us, we no longer live for ourselves, but for Christ, who died and rose again to give us life.

The proof of the recognition of Christ's sacrifice for us is the lifestyle change (repentance): From living to do and think evil, to live to learn to do good.

For us to have a relationship, Jesus died a horrible death. Do not pray and not understand that I have the opportunity to learn to live well is Bible plainly despise the sacrifice of Jesus.

Christ is the Lamb of God (John 1.29) than with the shedding of their blood took away the sin that separated me from God (Isaiah 59.2)

We need to understand the value that gives the relationship with Christ through prayer, He will enter the Kingdom only to those they know, ie their friends, what 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 (Ministries powerful)? "23 Then I will tell plainly, 'I never knew. (Never had a personal relationship) Away from me, you evildoers! (Do not look know is Evil) "Mt 7.21 - 23

Fill of Church activity, attend all meetings, 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: thereby good shall come unto thee. 22 Take now the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. 23 If you return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built; stay away from your store affliction. Job 22.21 - 23 RV 60
