Easter Encounter/Encuentro de Pascua

 

Scripture Reading/Lectura bíblica:

And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD …” But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. Thus the LORD saved Israel that day. (Exodus 14:13a, 29-30a)

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where He lay. …” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell His disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.” (Matthew 28:5-6, 8-10a)

Pero Moisés le dijo al pueblo: “No tengan miedo. Manténganse firmes, y vean la salvación que el Señor llevará hoy a cabo en favor de ustedes.” Éxodo 14:13

Pero el ángel les dijo a las mujeres: “No teman. Yo sé que buscan a Jesús, el que fue crucificado. No está aquí, pues ha resucitado, como él dijo… vayan pronto y digan a sus discípulos que él ha resucitado de los muertos… En eso, Jesús les salió al encuentro y les dijo: …”No teman. Vayan y den la noticia a mis hermanos, para que vayan a Galilea.” Mateo 28:5-10

 

Confession/Confesión:

Almighty and loving God, You created us to love You, worship You, and serve You. But our brokenness and sinfulness tarnishes the beauty and perfection of Your creation. We are hard-hearted and indifferent toward Your Kingdom. We easily forget Your call to love You with all our heart, soul, and might. Forgive us for being preoccupied with ourselves and not fulfilling our call to fully surrender and serve You. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit in us.

Dios todopoderoso y amoroso, nos creaste para amarte, adorarte y servirte. Pero nuestro quebrantamiento y pecaminosidad empaña la belleza y perfección de Tu creación. Somos insensibles e indiferentes hacia Tu Reino. Olvidamos fácilmente tu llamado a amarte con todo nuestro corazón, alma y poder. Perdónanos por estar preocupados por nosotros mismos y no cumplir con nuestro llamado a rendirnos y servirte por completo. Crea en nosotros un corazón limpio, oh Dios, y renueva un espíritu firme en nosotros.

Mensaje: “NO TEMAN”    

 

The Our Father (slowly pray this)

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, Amen.

El Padre Nuestro (lentamente reza esto)

Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos, santificado sea tu nombre. Venga tu reino, Hágase tu voluntad en la tierra, como en el cielo. Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día. Y perdona nuestras ofensas, como perdonamos a los que nos ofenden. Y no nos dejes caer en la tentación, sino líbranos del maligno. Para ti es el reino, el poder y la gloria para siempre, Amén.
