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:只夸十字架(2017-4-21)

只夸十字架 Boast

读经

但我断不以别的夸口,只夸我们主耶稣基督的十字架;因这十字架,就我而论,世界已经钉在十字架上;就世界而论,我已经钉在十字架上。” 加拉太书 6:14

As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world’s interest in me has also died. G A L AT I A N S 6 : 1 4

默想

你今天是否有勇气为耶稣夸口?你是否会停止炫耀自己的成就、停止要求别人关注你的问题,取而代之的是,放胆宣扬耶稣在十字架上所成的大义?你是否敢告诉别人你选择了这条路?你为什么可以那么做?人们不希望你谈论耶稣。相反,你的亲戚朋友都希望你谈论自己,谈论自己的大事。

耶稣上十字架的救赎和赦免跟你有什么关系呢?当然有关系!家长在冰箱上贴上孩子的照片,因为他们为孩子自豪。丈夫给妻子买花,因为他觉得娶了这个老婆自己很幸福。老师展示学生的作品,因为他欣赏学生的创新。这些人不在乎别人怎么想,他们很快乐,而且愿意分享。同样,你也会放胆夸口耶稣,分享在主里的喜乐。

What would happen today if you boasted about Jesus? What if, instead of bragging about your own accomplishments or calling attention to your own problems, you spoke boldly and favorably about what Jesus did on the cross? What would you even say if you chose to do this? Why would you even do that? People don’t want to hear you talk about that, do they? Well, many of your friends or family are glad to hear you talk about what’s important to you, right?

What if forgiveness from Jesus through his death on the cross were important to you? Proud parents put their kid’s picture on the fridge because they celebrate their child. A good husband buys flowers because he is honored to be married to his wife. A caring teacher displays a student’s artwork because she loves what was created. None of these people are worried about what others might think. They just feel the need to share and rejoice.

祷告

耶稣,谢谢你在十字架上舍身,从罪里救了我。求你赦免我一切的过犯。让我今天一直记住这个恩典。让我可以放胆宣扬你的福音。阿们!

Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross to save me from sin. Let your forgiveness sink to the very core of who I am. Let it overwhelm me today. And let me brag about you a bit. Amen.

行动

抓住机会,大胆以耶稣基督夸口。

In some way today, boast about Jesus.
