¿Qué significa buscar a Dios?

A menudo los cristianos hablan de buscar a Dios. ¿Qué significa eso? ¿Cómo podemos buscar a Dios?

Si estoy de visita en una ciudad desconocida para mí y estoy en busca de una cafetería cercana para satisfacer mi hábito de tomar café por la tarde, siempre encuentro ayuda a la mano. Puedo preguntar a alguien de la localidad, consultar un mapa, o utilizar una aplicación de navegación para ayudarme en mi búsqueda.

Pero, ¿qué pasa si estoy buscando Dios? ¿Cómo encuentro a Dios? ¿Y qué pasa si hay muchas maneras y motivos para buscar a Dios así como hay buscadores? ¿Qué hago entonces?

¿Existe Dios?

Algunas personas que buscan a Dios simplemente quieren saber si Él protestante en Belfast, Irlanda. Sin embargo, como adolescente, abandonó su creencia. Él encontró poco apoyo a la idea de la existencia de Dios en sus primeros estudios académicos.

“Me convertí en apóstata,” escribió Lewis, “dejando caer mi fe sin sentido alguno de pérdida, sino más bien, con el mayor de los alivios.”1 Mucho más tarde, un Lewis adulto fue “sorprendido por la alegría” y conducido por medio de la imaginación y la razón a una creencia establecida en Jesucristo como el Dónde está Dios?” preguntan. Esta es la pregunta que tratan de responder.

Los cristianos creen que Dios es omnipresente — que existe en todas partes en todo momento. No puede ser restringido, al igual que nosotros, a un sólo tiempo y un sólo lugar. El antiguo salmista, el Rey David reflexionó sobre el paradero de Dios y concluyó que no había lugar alguno en el cual Dios no estuviera:

si tendiera mi lecho en el fondo del abismo, también estás allí. Si me elevara sobre las alas del alba, o me estableciera en los extremos del mar, aun allí tu mano me guiaría, ¡me sostendría tu mano derecha!5 La afirmación de David no era que no podía encontrar a Dios, sino que no podía escapar de él. “Dios es omnipresente,” escribe el teólogo John Piper, “y por lo tanto, siempre está cerca de todo y de todos. Posee todo ser. Su poder está siempre presente en sostener y gobernar todas las cosas.”6 Su presencia puede encontrarse en la naturaleza,7 en las vidas de aquellos que lo siguen y entre los que se reúnen para adorarlo.9

¿Los Cristianos buscan a Dios?

También los creyentes hablan de buscar a Dios. Pero si creen en Dios, ¿acaso no lo han encontrado ya?

Cuando los cristianos hablamos de buscar a Dios, por lo general significa que están buscando la experiencia de la presencia de Dios. La Biblia exhorta a los creyentes a “buscar siempre el rostro de Dios.”10 Esta frase se refiere a tener acceso a Dios; buscar su rostro es buscar su presencia.

El Dios omnipresente está siempre cerca de todo y de todos, y él ha prometido estar con sus hijos siempre.11 Pero incluso alguien que cree en Dios podría no — de hecho, muy probablemente no lo hará — experimentar siempre su presencia prometida de maneras en las que pueda ser visto o sentido. Algunas veces “el rostro” de Dios parece oculto simplemente por nuestra falta de atención o por nuestra desobediencia. Algunas otras veces nos negamos a enfocar nuestra atención y afecto a Dios y por lo tanto nos resulta difícil percibir su presencia con nosotros.

Nuestra propia desobediencia o pecado voluntario puede resultar en el sentido de que Dios ha “retirado su mano” de nosotros por un tiempo — pero no cada prueba o dificultad que experimentamos es evidencia de que lo haya hecho. Mientras que él puede, en efecto, estar disciplinándonos al dejarnos sentir las consecuencias reales de nuestro pecado, y el alejamiento de Dios que trae el pecado, él aún está presente. Y todavía promete ser encontrado por aquellos que lo buscan sinceramente.12

No hacemos el esfuerzo mental y emocional para buscar a Dios porque él esté perdido. No lo está. Buscamos a Dios para “poder conocerlo” y “ser encontrados en él,” como el Apóstol Pablo lo escribió.13

¿Cómo buscamos a Dios?

Buscar a Dios implica poner nuestras mentes y nuestros corazones en él — y Dios nos anima a hacerlo.14 Él invita a los no creyentes a examinar su palabra y a considerar su obra en el mundo a través de su Hijo Jesucristo. Y él invita a los creyentes a acercarse a él en confianza, dependencia y adoración, para que él pueda revelar más de sí mismo.15

La Biblia nos asegura: “Si lo buscas, te permitirá que lo encuentres.”16 Él recompensa a aquellos que lo buscan, y la mayor recompensa de todo es la relación con Dios mismo.”17

Finalmente, en toda nuestra exploración debemos recordar que la búsqueda no es unilateral. Dios nos está buscando con más diligencia y deseo de lo que nosotros jamás podríamos mostrarle al buscarlo a él.

C. S. Lewis recuerda su conversión al cristianismo menos como su búsqueda de Dios y más como Dios buscándolo a él. “Me di cuenta de que estaba negándome a algo, cerrándole la puerta a algo. Podía abrir la puerta o mantenerla cerrada, deshacerme de la armadura, o conservarla. Escogí abrir, desarmarme, aflojar la rienda.”18

Jesús declaró que él “vino a buscar y a salvar lo que se había perdido.”19 C. S. Lewis vivió lo que es ser objeto de esa búsqueda. “Agnósticos amables,” dijo, “hablarán alegremente de ‘la búsqueda de Dios por parte del hombre.’ Para mí, como era yo entonces, bien podrían haber hablado de la búsqueda del ratón al gato. La realidad con la cual ningún tratado puede ser hecho era sobre mí.”20

Dios busca una relación con aquellos que no lo conocen aún. Él busca una unión más profunda con quienes sí lo conocen. Mientras lo buscamos, podemos estar seguros de que él está seriamente buscándonos a nosotros también.
