Pacto Matrimonial – (Spanish)


A Parable of Permanence . . .Reflecting on 40 years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant for the right reasons. Even when people commonly stayed married “till death do us part,” there has never been a generation whose view of marriage was high enough, says Pastor John Piper. That is all the more true in our casual times. Understanding God’s design according to his Word can awaken a glorious vision capable of freeing every person from small, Christ-ignoring, romance-intoxicated views. As Piper explains: “Most foundationally, marriage is the doing of God. And ultimately, marriage is the display of God. It displays the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his people to the world in a way that no other event or institution does. Marriage, therefore, is not mainly about being in love. It’s mainly about telling the truth with our lives. And staying married is not about staying in love. It is about keeping a covenant and putting the glory of Christ’s covenant-keeping love on display.

Una parabola de permanencia . . .
Reflexionando sobre cuarenta aos de matrimonio, John Piper enaltece el sentido biblico del matrimonio por encima de la emocion, exhortando a las parejas a mantener su pacto por las razones correctas. Incluso cuando la gente comunmente permanecio casada “hasta que la muerte nos separe”, nunca hubo una generacion cuya perspectiva del matrimonio fue lo suficientemente alta, dice el pastor John Piper. Esto es todavia mas cierto en nuestra informal epoca. Comprender el diseo de Dios segun su Palabra puede despertar una gloriosa vision capaz de liberar a todas las personas de perspectivas que ignoran a Cristo y estan intoxicadas por el romance. El matrimonio es fundamentalmente, mas que nada, la obra de Dios. Y, en ultima instancia, el matrimonio es la demostracion de Dios. De una manera mejor que ningun otro evento o institucion, en el matrimonio se muestra al mundo el mantenimiento del pacto de amor entre Cristo y su pueblo. El matrimonio, por lo tanto, no se trata principalmente de estar enamorado. Es, sobre todo, decir la verdad con nuestras vidas. Y permanecer casados no se trata de permanecer enamorados. Se trata de mantener el pacto y demostrar la gloria del amor fiel de Cristo.
