One of you will betray me… Uno de ustedes me traicionará

Mark 14:18

(MSG):  After sunset he came with the Twelve. As they were at the supper table eating, Jesus said, “I have something hard but important to say to you: One of you is going to hand me over to the conspirators, one who at this moment is eating with me.”

 GW: While they were at the table eating, Jesus said, “I can guarantee this truth: One of you is going to betray me, one who is eating with me!” 

I cannot grasp the feeling/idea that someone sitting with me in my kitchen table will betray, abandon, disappoint or backstab me.  Let alone the idea of forgiving that individual. How can I forgive and offer the best of me to someone with whom I have share intimate, joyful moments? Never!  Yet, Jesus sat among them and offered His grace!  He washed Peter’s feet and shared bread with Judas.  And at the end of all, he prayed for them both and forgave their trespasses… Can we forgive ourselves for betraying, abandoning, disappointing or backstabbing many?

 Lord, I know I have been called to be transform, to be authentic, to exercise integrity and to be accountable.  I do not have a problem understanding that, but my God help me to understand and to follow your command that I need to forgive even the most painful moments of my existence, will you?  Thanks!


DHH: Mientras estaban a la mesa, comiendo, Jesús les dijo: —Les aseguro que uno de ustedes, que está comiendo conmigo, me va a traicionar. 

No puedo comprender el que alguien que se sienta conmigo en mi mesa de la cocina me pueda traicionar, abandonar, defraudar o me que de puñaladas por la espalda. Tampoco puedo entretener la idea de perdonar a esa persona. ¿Cómo puedo perdonar y ofrecer lo mejor de mí a alguien con quien comparti momentos  íntimos, momentos de alegria? ¡Nunca! Sin embargo, Jesús se sentó entre ellos y ofreció su gracia.  Lavó los pies de Pedro y compartió su pan con Judas. Y al final de todo, él oró por ellos dos y perdonó sus pecados … ¿Podemos perdonarnos a nosotros mismos por haber traicionado, abandonando, decepcionado y apuñalado  a muchos?

Señor, sé que he sido llamad@ a transformar, a ser authentic@, a ejercer integridad y para rendir cuentas. Yo no tengo problemas para entender eso, pero Dios mío ayúdame a entender y seguir tus órdenes que tengo que perdonar incluso los momentos más dolorosos de mi existencia, ¿quieres? Gracias!
