5/21 Daily Devotionals

Chapel Devotionals

1 John 3:1-2, 23-24

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.


And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. All who obey his commandments abide in him, and he abides in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit that he has given us.


Mirad qué amor nos ha tenido el Padre para llamarnos hijos de Dios, pues ¡lo somos!. El mundo no nos conoce porque no le conoció a él. Queridos, ahora somos hijos de Dios y aún no se ha manifestado lo que seremos. Sabemos que, cuando se manifieste, seremos semejantes a él, porque le veremos tal cual es.


Y este es su mandamiento: que creamos en el nombre de su Hijo, Jesucristo, y que nos amemos unos a otros tal como nos lo mandó. Quien guarda sus mandamientos permanece en Dios y Dios en él; en esto conocemos que permanece en nosotros: por el Espíritu que nos dio.


보라, 아버지께서 어떠한 사랑을 우리에게 주사 하나님의 자녀라 일컬음을 얻게 하셨는고 우리가 그러하도다 그러므로 세상이 우리를 알지 못함은 그를 알지 못함이니라 사랑하는 자들아! 우리가 지금은 하나님의 자녀라 장래에 어떻게 될 것은 아직 나타나지 아니하였으나 그가 나타내심이 되면 우리가 그와 같을 줄을 아는 것은 그의 계신 그대로 볼 것을 인함이니


그의 계명은 이것이니 곧 그 아들 예수 그리스도의 이름을 믿고 그가 우리에게 주신 계명대로 서로 사랑할 것이니라 그의 계명들을 지키는 자는 주 안에 거하고 주는 저 안에 거하시나니 우리에게 주신 성령으로 말미암아 그가 우리 안에 거하시는 줄을 우리가 아느니라


Abiding God,

     your presence has remained with your people through all time and space.

You speak and the mountains tremble at your greatness.

You move and the seas roar your praise.

You welcome us into fellowship and speak to us through your Holy Spirit.

Sometimes we lack the patience to be still and know you.

Strengthen us, we pray, for the days ahead.

     We are tired, Lord.

     We are weary, Lord.

Be with us now and restore our souls,

     so that we may forever have your praise in our hearts and on our lips.

In Jesus’ name, we pray,
