"God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, "
1 Corinthians 1:1 Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sos'thenes,
1 Corinthians 1:2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:
1 Corinthians 1:3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:4 I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus,
1 Corinthians 1:5 that in every way you were enriched in him with all speech and all knowledge--
1 Corinthians 1:6 even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you--
1 Corinthians 1:7 so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
1 Corinthians 1:8 who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.
1 Corinthians 1:11 For it has been reported to me by Chlo'e's people that there is quarreling among you, my brethren.
1 Corinthians 1:12 What I mean is that each one of you says, "I belong to Paul," or "I belong to Apol'los," or "I belong to Cephas," or "I belong to Christ."
1 Corinthians 1:13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
1 Corinthians 1:14 I am thankful that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Ga'ius;
1 Corinthians 1:15 lest any one should say that you were baptized in my name.
1 Corinthians 1:16 (I did baptize also the household of Steph'anas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any one else.)
1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart."
1 Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
1 Corinthians 1:21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom,
1 Corinthians 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
1 Corinthians 1:24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:26 For consider your call, brethren; not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth;
1 Corinthians 1:27 but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong,
1 Corinthians 1:28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are,
1 Corinthians 1:29 so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 1:30 He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption;
1 Corinthians 1:31 therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."

God came to all, even those who think He would never accept them. HIS love goes beyond any depth you can imagine.

Let His will be done...

Cajita de Pandora
Las cosas más complicadas no se componen de los sucesos y acontecimientos como el calentamiento global, la guerra de Vietnam, ni la guerra de Iraq. Tampoco lo es el narco tráfico ni la prostitución o los vicios que enredan al hombre.

Muchos dicen que es la inseguridad y los temblores que sacuden a las naciones llevándose miles de humanos a la tumba, sin saber donde terminan sus almas.

Nada de esto es tan complicado como nuestro cajoncito de recuerdos que no lo queremos dejar ir.
Se han dado cuenta como todas las grandes catástrofes a nivel mundial regresan a la normalidad con la vuelta de los años.

La bomba atómica de Hiroshima en Japón, los tsunamis de indonesia, los terremotos de Chile y Haití que afectaron a millares de personas separando a las familias de sus seres amados y destruyendo todo lo que se encuentra a su paso, el patrimonio familiar, se recuperaron de la desgracia.

Pero lo que nunca el hombre ha podido lograr, es remover el cajoncito de los recuerdos, La caja de pandora, el recipiente que contiene todos los males que aquejan a la humanidad. Lo que somos, lo que nos mueve, los sentimientos, las emociones, lo que nos mete en problemas tanto con Dios como con nuestro prójimo.

Nuestra vida se aferra a seguir siendo la misma. El mismo carácter, el mismo rencor, la envidia, intriga y maldad. Somos cristianos y seguimos teniendo problemas con los demás.

Mientras nos tratan bien o nos dan por nuestro lado, somos las personas masas amorosas y espirituales. Pero no nos hagan algo porque se termina la fiesta, empujamos a un lado al Espíritu Santo y sale de la cajita de pandora el viejo hombre acompañado con diablo.

Queremos seguir viviendo en el pecado de la ignorancia y sin dirección.
Mientras que exista este cajoncito lleno de recuerdos de quienes fuimos, imposible será nuestra partida.

El pecado de la ignorancia es el veneno que mata al creyente lentamente.
Creemos en Dios pero desconfiamos de EL, vamos a la iglesia pero no estamos en ella.
Dejamos salir continuamente de nuestros cajoncitos a las pequeñas zorras que echan a perder nuestras grandes cosechas.

Podremos tener congregaciones o grupos de células grandes y un fluir del Espíritu Santo, pero mientras seamos arrogantes, soberbios con problemas de carácter, nunca tendremos éxito con el amor sincero de los demás.

Seamos esa nueva criatura que nunca se cansa. Dejemos lo pasado en el pasado y corramos con paciencia nuestra carrera obteniendo como premio la Corona de Vida, Efesios 4:12-32. Les bendigo shalom.
