Although we do not see the end, God has everything under control.
I grew up under the Catholic faith that I inherited from my parents. I learned to fear God and to respect the Christian symbols that I knew and used. I remember that, when I was about 10 years old, I would get up every day at 5 am, take a shower and get ready to go to the 6 am mass. There came a time when I wanted to become an altar boy and thus make an ecclesiastical career. But things changed course, I became a troublesome young man at school and dissatisfied at home. All the problems that had happened to me as a child blossomed and the internal wounds began to fester. I was not a good student, I stayed away from the scout groups, I was smoking and consumed alcohol a few times. Right there, when my mom no longer knew what else to do with me, is when I reencounter the Camino. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I cannot forget my past, because today I use it to bear witness to the power of God. However, God has forgiven me for all my mistakes and has made me a new human being. As the Word of him says: This means that everyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life has passed; a new life has begun!
“FOR IF YOU WERE CUT OFF FROM THE WILD OLIVE TREE BY NATURE, AND AGAINST NATURE YOU WERE GRAFTED INTO THE GOOD OLIVE TREE, HOW MUCH MORE WILL THESE, WHICH ARE THE NATURAL BRANCHES, BE GRAFTED INTO THEIR OWN OLIVE TREE?”
Romans 11. 24
Thank God, the Gospel of Christ is born in the same history of the Jewish people of Israel. With this, we find ourselves in the acts of the Jews in the OT, all the mistakes they made and thus, we are willing not to repeat them. In any case, and as the scripture dictates: Then he said: When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses, in the prophets and in the Psalms had to be fulfilled. Without the history of the Jewish Israelites, we would not have the blessing of being saved through Jesus of Nazareth. In the same way that God uses this rebellious human being like me, bringing words of blessing to many, in the same way, God uses the history that he has sustained with Israel for millennia, to bring blessing to each one of us.
“FOR I DO NOT WANT YOU, BROTHERS, TO BE IGNORANT OF THIS MYSTERY, SO THAT YOU MAY NOT BE ARROGANT AS TO YOURSELVES: THAT A PARTLY HARDENING HAS HAPPENED TO ISRAEL, UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN; AND AFTERWARDS ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED, AS IT IS WRITTEN: THE DELIVERER WILL COME OUT OF ZION, WHO WILL REMOVE UNGODLY FROM JACOB.”
Romans 11. 25-26
The more than 180 countries that exist, biblically, are those Gentiles mentioned by the Apostle Paul in his gospel. We are the gentiles that he mentions. But, every day all those who are tired, overwhelmed, and without hope must join the kingdom of Christ, because Christ will make them rest. Therefore, we will have to extend the Kingdom of Christ, in time and outside of it, because Jesus Christ died for all humanity and thus, give freedom to all living beings and to creation itself.
God bless you.
