DIA 22: Ora por las naciones – Pray for the nations


Mark 15: 1b-5 “Yes, I am”

He was arrested, paraded through the streets of Jerusalem and now they want him to answer many questions. What is it that this man wanted to hear? “Are you the King of the Jews? Yes, I am.” Period and the sentence its finished! There is nothing else to say. Do what you must and let him be!

What did they expect? These were false accusations! There are no words. I experienced the border patrol officer asking questions, and he wanted an answer. No matter what this college students answered, he wanted the answer he wanted. And his questions not only frighten the students but humiliated them in front of strangers. For me, I just starred as I knew there was nothing I can say that satisfied their thirst for power. If you speak you are condemn, if you do not speak you are condemn. Then? Keep your dignity and let God be the one who ends the fight.

Dear God, you who fight our battles, thank you for reminding us that we are not the tail, but the head. Amen.

Marcos 15:1b-5 “Si, yo soy”

Jesús fue arrestado, arrastrado por las calles de Jerusalén y ahora quieren que responda a sus preguntas. ¿Qué es lo que este hombre quería escuchar? “¿Eres el Rey de los Judíos? Sí, lo soy”. ¡Punto y se acabó! No hay nada más que decir. ¡Haz lo que debes y deja lo otro a un lado!

¿Qué esperaban? ¡Estas fueron falsas acusaciones! No hay palabras. Experimenté al oficial de la patrulla fronteriza haciendo preguntas, y él quería una respuesta. No importaba lo que respondieran los estudiantes de la universidad, él quería la respuesta que él quería. Y sus preguntas no solo asustan a los estudiantes sino que los humillan frente a los extraños. Para mí, simplemente me di cuenta de que no había nada que decir que satisficiera su sed de poder. Si hablas, estás condenado, si no hablas, estás condenado. ¿Entonces? Mantenga su dignidad y permita que Dios sea quien termine la lucha.
