Weekly Reflection

A Life Transfigured

02-25-2024  |  We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 49, No. 1

Today’s first reading is difficult, to say the least. What God asks Abraham to do is horrible and outrageous, as well as illogical, considering that the covenant promised him and his descendants a great nation. It puts his faith to the test. He must have recalled that it was only by God's intervention that Sarah bore Isaac in the first place. Now Abraham is asked to trust God once again as he and his son climb the mountain. Centuries later Jesus climbs a different mountain with three of his closest disciples. When they see him transfigured and joined by Elijah and Moses, they are shocked as well, and in fact terrified. They are still confused when Jesus tells them of rising from the dead. But now we know and now we realize God’s promise to us all along. God promises us a life transfigured. God’s devotion to us, God’s faith in us, is so strong that, as Paul wrote, God handed the Son over for us all, to win our salvation. Much as Abraham did not understand God’s command, much as the disciples could not imagine what Jesus told them, we cannot fathom the infinite extent of God’s mercy and generosity.

When have you placed your trust in God without understanding how it could work out?


Una Vida Transfigurada

La primera lectura de hoy es difícil. Lo que Dios le pide a Abrahán que haga es horrible e indignante, además de ilógico, considerando que en el pacto le prometía a él y a sus descendientes una gran nación. Pone a prueba su fe. Debió haber recordado que fue sólo por la intervención de Dios que Sara dio a luz a Isaac en primer lugar. Ahora se le pide a Abraham que confíe en Dios una vez más mientras él y su hijo suben a la montaña. Siglos después, Jesús sube a una montaña diferente con tres de sus discípulos más cercanos. Cuando lo ven transfigurado y acompañado por Elías y Moisés, también se sorprenden y, de hecho, se aterrorizan. Todavía están confundidos cuando Jesús les habla de resucitar de entre los muertos. Pero ahora sabemos y se cumplió la promesa que Dios nos hizo desde el principio. Dios nos promete una vida transfigurada. La devoción de Dios hacia nosotros, la fe de Dios en nosotros, es tan fuerte que, como escribió Pablo, Dios entregó a su Hijo a todos nosotros, para ganar nuestra salvación. Por mucho que Abraham no entendiera el mandato de Dios, por mucho que los discípulos no pudieran imaginar lo que Jesús les dijo, no podemos comprender el alcance infinito de la misericordia y generosidad de Dios.

¿Cuándo has puesto tu confianza en Dios sin entender cómo podría resultar?
