Saturday Encounter/ Encuentro Sabatino

 

Scripture Reading/Lectura bíblica:

After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus … Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus by night, came … Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there. (John 19:38a, 39a, 41-42)

Then the angel of God who was going before the host of Israel moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them, coming between the host of Egypt and the host of Israel. And there was the cloud and the darkness. And it lit up the night without one coming near the other all night. (Exodus 14:19-20)

José de Arimatea… le rogó a Pilato que le permitiera llevarse el cuerpo de Jesús, y Pilato se lo permitió. Entonces José fue y se llevó el cuerpo de Jesús… En el lugar donde Jesús fue crucificado, había un huerto, y en el huerto había un sepulcro nuevo, en el que aún no habían puesto a nadie. Y por causa de la preparación de la pascua de los judíos, y porque aquel sepulcro estaba cerca, pusieron allí a Jesús. Juan 19:38-42

El ángel de Dios, que precedía al campamento de Israel, se apartó de ellos y se puso en la retaguardia… En toda esa noche, no se acercaron los unos a los otros. Éxodo 14:19-20

Confession/Confesión:

O Lord, You have promised to send Your Holy Spirit to be with us, and to guide us.Yet we confess the many times that our eyes can’t see You, that our hearts can’t fathom Your work in our pain. Forgive us for assuming we are on our own to navigate this life. Teach us to pray expectantly for the Holy Spirit to reveal Your goodness.Give us the strength to wait, the courage to trust in You, for we place our lives in Your keeping, through Christ our Lord we pray, Amen.

Oh Señor, has prometido enviar a tu Espíritu Santo para estar con nosotros y guiarnos. Sin embargo, confesamos las muchas veces que nuestros ojos no pueden verte, que nuestros corazones no pueden comprender tu trabajo en nuestro dolor. Perdónanos por asumir que estamos solos para navegar esta vida. Enséñanos a orar expectante para que el Espíritu Santo revele tu bondad. Danos la fuerza para esperar, el coraje para confiar en ti, porque ponemos nuestras vidas en tu custodia, por medio de Cristo nuestro Señor, oramos, Amén.
