ITINERIS – Abril 12, 2019


There is nothing special about us, the redeemed. We are His not because any contribution we could ever made; we are His because of His grace. We were setting up kingdoms in our own hearts, using as their foundation things that are good and important. But, then, we moved to make idols and, finally, to find our definition on those cheap imitations of His glory.

Then, the King came with His inexorable lordship, unstoppable and unrestrained by human culture. He took us out of the dominion of darkness and transferred us into His marvelous light.

That experience unites us, regardless of our cultural backgrounds.

That experience – we have seen and enjoyed His Beauty – fills us with the desire to tell others about the King.

In prayer, ask the Triune God of the Universe to give you, today, an opportunity to share His Beauty with others. Be compassionate. Be generous. Be unafraid. The world needs to hear from the Good King.

 

Let us express humility through unceasing prayer.

 

No hay nada especial en nosotros, los redimidos. Somos de Él, no porque podamos hacer alguna contribución; Somos de Él por Su gracia. Estábamos estableciendo reinos en nuestros propios corazones, utilizando como fundamento las cosas que son buenas e importantes. Pero, entonces, nos movimos a hacer ídolos y, finalmente, a encontrar nuestra definición en esas imitaciones baratas de Su gloria.

Luego, el Rey vino con su inexorable señorío, imparable y sin restricciones por la cultura humana. Nos sacó del dominio de las tinieblas y nos transfirió a Su luz maravillosa.

Esa experiencia nos une, independientemente de nuestros antecedentes culturales.

Esa experiencia – hemos visto y disfrutado de Su belleza – nos llena con el deseo de contarle a otros sobre el Rey.

En oración, pídele al Dios Triuno del Universo que te brinde hoy la oportunidad de compartir Su Belleza con los demás. Se compasivo. Sé generoso. No tengas miedo. El mundo necesita escuchar del Buen Rey.

 

Expresemos humildad a través de la oración incesante.
