From Pastor’s desk:
Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reflection: J ohn 1, 35 – 42.
Who is Jesus for you? John calls Jesus the Lamb of
God and thus signifies Jesus’ mission as the One who
redeems us from our sins. It is significant that John
was the son of a priest, Zachariah, who participated in
daily sacrifice of a lamb in the temple for the sins of the people. In
Jesus he saw the true and only sacrifice which can deliver us from sin.
How did John know the true identity of Jesus, as the Messiah? The
Holy Spirit revealed to John Jesus’ true nature, such that John bore
witness that this is the Son of God. How can we be certain that Jesus
is truly the Christ, the Son of the God? The Holy Spirit makes Christ
known to us through the gift of faith. God gives us freely of his Spirit
that we may comprehend the great mystery and plan of God to unite
all things in his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus invites each of us to
“come and see” for ourselves that his word is true and everlasting.
“Come and see” is God’s invitation for fellowship and communion
with the One who made us in love for love, this is something very
important about God and how he relates to us: if you hadn’t been
called by God, what could you have done to turn back? Didn’t the
very One who called you when you were opposed to Him make it
possible for you to turn back? It is God who initiates and who draws
us to himself. Without his grace, mercy, and help we could not find
him. The Holy Spirit gives us the gift of faith to know Jesus Christ
personally, power to live the gospel faithfully, and courage to witness
to others the joy and truth of the gospel. The Lord Jesus Christ is ever
ready to draw us near to himself.
Lord Jesus Christ, fill us with the power of your Holy Spirit and let us
grow in knowledge of love and truth. Let your Spirit be aflame in our
heart that we may know and love you more fervently and strive to do
your will in all things.
Del Escritorio del pastor: Secundo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Reflexión: 1, 35-42
¿Quién es Jesús para usted? Juan llama a Jesús el Cordero de Dios y
por lo tanto significa la misión de Jesús como el que nos redime de
nuestros pecados. Es significativo que Juan era el hijo de un sacerdote,
Zacarías, quien participó en sacrificio de un cordero en el templo por
los pecados del pueblo. En Jesús vio el Único y verdadero sacrificio
que nos puede liberarnos del pecado. ¿Cómo sabía Juan de la
verdadera identidad de Jesús, como el Mesías? El Espíritu Santo reveló a Juan la verdadera naturaleza de Jesus, de manera que Juan dio
testimonio de que éste es el hijo de Dios. Como podemos estar seguros de que Jesús es verdaderamente el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios? El
Espíritu Santo hace que Cristo sea conocido por nosotros a través del
don de la fe. Dios nos da libremente de su Espíritu para que podamos
comprender el gran misterio y el plan de Dios para unir todas las cosas
en su Hijo, nuestro Señor Jesus Cristo. Jesús invita a cada uno de nosotros a "venir y ver" por nosotros mismos que su palabra es
verdadera y eterna. “Venid y lo veréis" es la invitación de Dios para
compañerismo y comunión con el que nos hizo en el amor por amor,
esto es algo muy importante acerca de Dios y cómo se relaciona con
nosotros: si no ahubieras sido llamados por Dios, ¿qué podría haber
hecho para regresar? No era el mismo que te llamo cuando usted se
opuso a el hacer posible que usted regresara? Dios es el que inicia y
que nos atrae a el. Sin su gracia, la misericordia y la ayuda no podíamos encontralo. El Espíritu Santo nos da el don de la fe para conocer a
Jesucristo personalmente, poder vivir el Evangelio con fe y valor para
testimoniar a los demás la alegría y la verdad del evangelio. El Señor
Jesús Cristo está siempre dispuesto a que nos acercamos a él.
Señor Jesucristo, llenanos con el poder de tu Espíritu Santo y dejanos
crecer en conocimiento del amor y la verdad. Deje que tu espíritu sea
una llama en nuestro corazón para que podamos conocer y amar con
más fervor y esfuerzar para hacer tu voluntad en todas las cosas.
