神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16)

【双语灵修】葛培理:不要让搅扰控制你的意志和心灵(2017-2-14)

读经

“死的毒钩就是罪,罪的权势就是律法。 感谢上帝,使我们借着我们的主耶稣基督得胜。 所以,我亲爱的弟兄们,你们务要坚固,不可摇动,常常竭力多做主工;因为知道,你们的劳苦在主里面不是徒然的。”

哥林多前书 15:56-58

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

1 CO R I N T H I A N S 1 5 : 5 6 – 5 8

默想

有一些搅扰是很难控制的,例如战争、恐怖袭击、疾病、死亡;有一些搅扰看起来很像没有那么强烈,但是象种子一样,会慢慢成长,例如憎恨、骄傲、嫉妒、自私。这些搅扰,都会干扰上帝给受造者的大异象。

所以,你要警醒。首先,上帝要你明白一个生命改变的见证,这些搅扰迟早都要消失,因为救主耶稣已经得胜。其次,上帝希望你的言行站立得住,不可为这些搅扰摇动。今天,在耶稣的大能里得享自由的生命。不要让搅扰控制你的意志和心灵。转向造物主,因为他为你担当一切。

There are some troubles that are massive in scale—like war, terror, disease, and death. And some of the troubles we see appear to be less intense, but they are the seeds that spawn disruption in our lives, such as hate, pride, jealousy, and selfishness. These things interfere with the amazingvision God has for his creation.

This is where you come in to play. First, God wants you to know something powerfully life changing: the problems of this world will one day  fade away. Jesus is taking care of them. And second, God wants your words and actions to stand in contrast to the disruptive troubles of this world. Live today in the freedom and power of Jesus. Don’t allow the troubles around you to control your mind or your heart. Turn yourself toward your Creator today, knowing that he is taking care of all things. For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

祷告

大能的救主耶稣,赐给我力量,让我能够抵挡这个世界里的搅扰,愿一切按主的旨意行。让我能够邀请别人一起相信你,有得胜的生命。阿们。

Almighty Jesus, give me the strength today to stand against those destructive forces that seek to disrupt your plans in this world. And let me invite others into your victorious life. Amen.

行动

从小事做起。如果看到脏乱的地方,赶紧去收拾干净。你去做,不管别人看不看到。

Here’s a simple challenge that makes a big impact. If you see a mess today, clean it up. Just do it, whether someone notices or not.
