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)

更新的生命 A NEW HEART NEEDED

“我要使他们有合一的心,也要将新灵放在他们里面,又从他们肉体中除掉石心,赐给他们肉心,”  以西结书 11:19

I will give them a new heart and a new mind. I will take away their stubborn heart of stone and will give them an obedient heart.  Ezekiel 11:19 TEV

光化射线是火焰引起化学变化的特质和功能。这种射线让木头变成灰,让钢铁溶解,让物质的颜色和形状发生变化。同样,也正是因为太阳光里面的这种射线,种子成为植物,发芽开花,又从青草变成干草。这种奇妙的射线又可以让无用的东西变得有用。

和这种射线一样,神也有特别的大能来施行改变。一个人一旦与神建立联系,他就一定会变化。神的火焰要么拉回要么驱赶,要么拯救要么灭绝,要么帮扶要么阻碍。接受神,就是生命和祝福。拒绝神,就是痛苦和咒诅。在主的十字架的两旁,一个犯人愿意接受救主,得到救恩,一个犯人拒绝了神,就迷失了。神使软弱的变得刚强;使污秽的变得洁净;使不配的变得有价值;使有罪的变得圣洁。所以,先知宣告耶和华的话说:我要使他们有合一的心,也要将新灵放在他们里面,又从他们肉体中除掉石心,赐给他们肉心。

The actinic  ray is that property of fire which works chemical change. It turns wood to ashes, tempers steel, and changes the color and form of objects which come in contact with it.It is this property in the rays of the sun which transforms seeds into plants, buds into flowers, and grass into hay. It is the miracle ray which makes useless things useful through the process of change.

Like the calorific ray, it is also a physical symbol of God’s ability to do mightier things in the spiritual realm.When a man comes in contact with God, he can never be the same again. This “fire” either draws or drives, saves or destroys, helps or hinders. Accepted and utilized, it becomes a boon and a blessing. Rejected, it becomes a bane and a curse. One dying thief was drawn to the warmth of the Savior; he responded and was saved. The other dying thief turned away and rejected God’s compassion; he was lost.God takes the weak and makes them strong. He takes the vile and makes them clean. He takes the worthless and makes them worthwhile. He takes the sinful and makes them sinless.With this in mind, Ezekiel said, “Thus saith the Lord God… A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart.”
