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)

心有阳光 Let It Shine

读经

“那吩咐光从黑暗里照出来的上帝,已经照在我们心里,叫我们得知上帝荣耀的光显在耶稣基督的面上。” 哥林多后书 4:6

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 CO R I N T H I A N S 4 : 6

默想

创世时,上帝说要有光,于是就从黑暗里造了光。今天,上帝让这光照在你的心里。这光强烈耀眼,曾经刺透无边的黑暗,如今也在你的里面,让你坚强。在耶稣面前,冷漠的外表会融化,灰暗的影子会逃离,阴沉的思想会消失。上帝的光,在混乱中启示他的真理;在迷雾中彰显他的荣耀。

耶稣就是“世界的光”。圣经说,黑暗并不接受光,黑暗误解了光。黑暗知道耶稣的工作,却根本无视耶稣的光芒。黑暗试图隐藏起来,却又无处可逃。所以,让你的心里有光明。让耶稣通过你显示他的光芒。

The one who created the light when there was nothing but darkness is shining his light into your heart today. If the vast darkness before time could be dissipated by his brilliance, imagine how brightly Jesus could shine in you. Against the glare of his light, icy exteriors melt, dark shadows flee, and murky thoughts clear up. God’s light reveals his truth in the midst of confusion and gives knowledge of his glory in the midst of fog.

Jesus is called the Light of the World. The Bible teaches that darkness just doesn’t understand the light—it misunderstands it, to be more precise. Darkness thinks it knows how Jesus works but is totally blindsided by his brilliance again and again. Darkness tries to hide but quickly discovers it can’t. So let there be light in your heart today, and allow Jesus to reflect his light through you.

祷告

耶稣,请你光照我。阿们!

Dear Jesus, shine brightly in me and through me today. Amen.

行动

在太阳下面,默想今天的经文。或者在灯光下面,闭上眼睛,体会内心被光照的感觉。

Find the sun today. If it’s cloudy, find a bright and warm lamp. Go sit under it. Close your eyes. Run this verse through your heart until it sinks in.
