Encouraged in Christ

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

“A rattlesnake bit one of my sheep in the face the other day. Deadliest snake that lives around here. The sheep’s face swelled up and hurt her terribly.
But the old rattlesnake didn’t know the kind of blood that flows through the sheep. Anti-venom is most often made from sheep’s blood. The sheep swelled for about two days but then the blood of the lamb destroyed the venom of the snake.
I was worried but the sheep didn’t care. She kept eating, kept on drinking, kept on climbing because she knew she would be alright.
Often the serpents of this life will reach out and bite us. They inject their poison into us but they can’t overcome the Blood of the Lamb of God that washes away the sin of the world and the sting of death. Don’t worry about the serpent or his bite. Just make sure that the Lamb’s Blood is flowing through your veins.”

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭9‬-‭10‬ ‭


“Y me ha dicho: Bástate mi gracia; porque mi poder se perfecciona en la debilidad. Por tanto, de buena gana me gloriaré más bien en mis debilidades, para que repose sobre mí el poder de Cristo.
Por lo cual, por amor a Cristo me gozo en las debilidades, en afrentas, en necesidades, en persecuciones, en angustias; porque cuando soy débil, entonces soy fuerte.”
2 Coríntios 12:9-10

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,

Cuando mi corazón desmayare.
Llévame a la roca que es más alta que yo,
