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)

更新的心灵 Sanctifier

读经

“我也要赐给你们一个新心,将新灵放在你们里面,又从你们的肉体中除掉石心,赐给你们肉心。 我必将我的灵放在你们里面,使你们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。”  以西结书 36:26-27 

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.   E Z E K I E L 3 6 : 2 6 – 2 7

默想 

水果当然是又成熟、又干净、又新鲜的时候最好吃了,否则肯定是苦涩的。变质、腐坏的水果肯定不能吃。

主耶稣基督肯定在你里面预备成熟、干净、新鲜的“水果”。你只要扎根于基督,他必然在你里面成长发芽,结出果子,影响更多的人。

耶稣每天更新你的生命。他如此费心地帮助你。他不是只有你惧怕时需要他时,他才出现,他随时关注你、联系你。这样,你与耶稣心连心,成为他爱的管道。他让你远离罪恶、有新的生命。他的灵在你里面,让你长成他的样子。

Fruit is best when it is ripe and washed, but fruit that is forced is bitter. Fruit that is infected is sickening and fruit that goes wasted is rotten. I’m sure glad that Jesus produces ripe, clean fruit in you. As you root deeply into him, he prepares his characteristics to emerge from you and have tremendous impact, both in your life and in the lives of those around you. In this way,

Jesus changes you and he changes everything every day through you. Jesus is hard at work in your life. He doesn’t just check in with you when you are afraid and call out to him. He checks in with you constantly. He is connected to you. You have infiltrated his heart and he is flowing through you. Allow him to separate you from sin and dedicate you to a new life in him. Allow him to conform you to his Spirit, to be made like him in the way you think and in what you imagine is possible. 

祷告

耶稣,你在我里面结果子,让我成为他人的祝福 阿们。

Jesus, as you are producing your good within me and through me, let me be a blessing to others. Amen.

行动

在试探和试炼面前,不要靠自己,归向耶稣,更新生命。

In trials and temptations, choose not to rely upon yourself. Instead, draw near to God and give the test to him.
