"The one who is coming after me is stronger than I am. I’m not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire."
Ministry of John the Baptist
3 In those days John the Baptist appeared in the desert of Judea announcing, 2 “ Change your hearts and lives! Here comes the kingdom of heaven! ” 3 He was the one of whom Isaiah the prophet spoke when he said:
4 John wore clothes made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey.
5 People from Jerusalem, throughout Judea, and all around the Jordan River came to him. 6 As they confessed their sins, he baptized them in the Jordan River. 7 Many Pharisees and Sadducees came to be baptized by John. He said to them, “ You children of snakes! Who warned you to escape from the angry judgment that is coming soon? 8 Produce fruit that shows you have changed your hearts and lives. 9 And don’t even think about saying to yourselves, Abraham is our father. I tell you that God is able to raise up Abraham’s children from these stones. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree that doesn’t produce good fruit will be chopped down and tossed into the fire. 11 I baptize with water those of you who have changed your hearts and lives. The one who is coming after me is stronger than I am. I’m not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 12 The shovel he uses to sift the wheat from the husks is in his hands. He will clean out his threshing area and bring the wheat into his barn. But he will burn the husks with a fire that can’t be put out. ”
Hablamos como si entendieramos lo que significa "gracia." Pero ?realmente lo entendemos? ?Nos conformamos con una gracia cualquiera? Gentilmente forma parte de alabanzas y calza muy bien en el rotulo de las iglesias. Nunca causa problemas ni exige respuestas. Cuando alguien pregunta: "?crees en la gracia?," ?quien puede responder que no? Max Lucado tiene una pregunta aun mas profunda: ?has sido cambiado por la gracia? ?moldeado por la gracia? ?fortalecido por la gracia? ?animado por la gracia? ?ablandado por la gracia? ?tomado a la fuerza por la nuca y sacudido hasta los sentidos por la gracia? "Gracia" es la voz que nos llama a cambiar y nos da el poder para lograrlo. Hagamos que la gracia verdadera te atrape.
