From Pastor’s desk: First Sunday of Lent
Reflection: Mark 1, 12 – 15:
“Repent and believe in the gospel”.
In announcing the good news, Jesus gave two
explicit things each of us must do to in order to
receive the kingdom of God: Repent and believe. When we submit to Christ’s rule in our
lives and believe the gospel message the Lord
Jesus gives us the grace and power to live a new
way of life as citizens of his kingdom. He gives us grace to renounce
the kingdom of darkness ruled by sin and Satan, the father of lies and
the ruler of this present world. That is why repentance is the first step.
Repentance means to change, to change my way of thinking, my attitude, disposition, and life choices so that Christ can be the Lord and
Master of my heart rather than sin, selfishness, and greed. The gospel
reminds us that the Spirit drove Jesus into the desert for forty days,
We too are sent into the desert of repentance to search our hearts,
hoping to resist what is evil and to embrace all that is good. God is
faithful to you on your journey of faith. On this first Sunday of Lent ,
we recall the twofold nature of this season. All we have to do is repent and believe in the gospel: the Good News. As we listen to these
readings today, let us recall our own baptismal covenant with God
and how we ourselves are repenting and believing in the Good News
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
O God, lead us this Lent into the deserts of our hearts. Let this days
be a time of discernment and discovery, of resolution and conversion,
that this springtime may be a season for beginning and new growth in
our lives. May your Word be our bread during our wilderness journey; may your light illuminate the treacherous turns of the road we
walk; may your grace and wisdom minister to us in our deserts of
sadness and despair.
Reflexión: Marcos 1,12-15:
"Convertíos y creed en el Evangelio"
Al anunciar la buena noticia, Jesús nos dio dos cosas explícitas que
cada uno de nosotros debemos hacer en orden de recibir el reino de
Dios: Convertínos y creed: Cuandos nos sometemos a la regla de
Christo el nuestras vidas y creed en el mensaje del evangelio el Señor
Jesús nos da la gracia y el poder para vivir una nueva forma de vida
como ciudadanos de su reino. Él nos da la gracia para renunciar al
reino de las tinieblas gobernado por el pecado y Satanás, el padre de
la mentira y el príncipe de este mundo presente. Es por eso que el
arrepentimiento es el primer paso. El arrepentimiento significa cambiar, cambiar mi forma de pensar, mi actitud, mi disposición y las
opciones de vida para que Cristo pueda ser el Amo y Señor de mi
corazón en lugar de el pecado, el egoísmo y la codicia. El evangelio
nos recuerda que el Espíritu condujo a Jesús al desierto durante
cuarenta días. Nosotros también somos enviados al desierto de arrepentimiento a buscar nuestros corazones, con la esperanza de resistir
el mal y abrazar todo lo que es bueno. Dios es fiel con tigo en tu
camino de fe. En este primire Domingo de Cuaresma, recordamos la
doble naturaleza de esta temporada. Todo lo que tenemos que hacer
arrepentirnos y creer en el Evangelio:La buena noticia. Al escuchar
estas lecturas de hoy, recordemos nuestra propia alianza bautismal
con Dios y la forma en que nosotros mismos estamos arrepintiendos y
creer en las buenas nuevas de nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo.
Oh Dios, nos guianos en esta Cuaresma en los desiertos de nuestro
corazón. Que este día sea un tiempo de discernimiento y descubrimiento, de la resolución y la conversión, que esta primavera puede
ser una temporada para el inicio y crecimiento de nuevo en nuestras
vidas. Que tu palabra sea nuestro pan durante nuestro viaje por el
desierto; Que tu luz ilumine las curvas traicioneras del camino que
andamos; puede que tu gracia y sabiduria los minister en nuestros
desiertos de tristeza y desesperación.
