Pensamientos sobre el Verso de Hoy

Creo que es natural pensar que los problemas de nuestros tiempos se deben a la gran depravación de ahora. Afortunadamente la Biblia nos recuerda repetidamente que el pueblo de Dios siempre ha tenido que nadar contra la corriente de la cultura. Como hijos de Dios debemos ser como estrellas en el cielo de nuestra cultura. En vez de quejarnos constantemente de nuestra cultura o de nuestro tiempo, iluminemos el camino para que otros vean el camino que deben vivir.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

As many of us leave our season of Thanksgiving and transition into the season of Advent, we remember our greatest reason for giving thanks: Jesus’ coming. After all, Advent means “the coming,” and in particular, the coming of God to earth in Jesus. God loves us so much that he refused to just be God far off from us. He chose to come near to us, and be one of us, in Jesus. God is holy and beyond us (Isaiah 6:1-6), yet he became one of us in Jesus because of his mercy and grace (Isaiah 57:15). In Jesus, God surrendered his divine privileges and humbled himself so we could see both God’s grace and our own path to him in his greatness (Philippians 2:5-11).

Mi oración

Dios Todopoderoso, gracias por llamarme a tan sagrada tarea. Quiero brillar como una estrella contra la oscuridad de la cultura de mí alrededor. Por favor ayúdame mientras busco vivir una vida sagrada que tenga una influencia de redención para aquellos alrededor mío que no conocen a Jesús, en cuyo nombre oro. Amen.

My Prayer...

Loving Father, thank you for loving us so much that you joined us in our mortality through Jesus. Thank you, Jesus, for living among us and showing us what God-like living is. Thank you for knowing our struggle with living in human flesh in a broken world. Thank you for defeating death and giving us life with you, forever. Because of Jesus, Father, we will forever want you to know our thanks! Amen.
