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】葛培理布道团:主赐平安(2018-5-25)

“爱你律法的人有大平安, 什么都不能使他们绊脚。”诗篇 119:165

Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. Psalm, 119:165

诗篇119篇165节说,平安是神所赐的恩典。神有一个关于平安的配方,这个配方就是他的儿子耶稣基督,也是和平的君。但是,这个世界却不接受神赐的平安,他们更希望战争。感谢神,成千上万的人珍惜和平与平安,因为他们得到了生命。因着信,借着救主耶稣基督,他们的内心得到了从神而来的平安。人真正的争战是对神的悖逆和反叛。这种反叛带来破坏、痛苦、悲伤、难过、各种病痛。神希望这种反叛停止。他就差遣了独生的儿子耶稣基督,在十字架上彰显神的爱和怜悯。神希望我们来到十字架前,悔改认罪,顺服神的旨意。也因为我们的信,他们就应许平安给我们。

司布真这样描述平安:因着主的复活,我们得到平安。如果耶稣自己没有平安,他不会对我们说:愿你们平安 (参路24:36)。 他很沉着、淡定,他在世界的一生起起伏伏,但是他复活之后,一切变得简单。他不用再和祭司、法利赛人争论不休。因为他已经复活!你的生命中有基督的平安吗?

Psalm 119:165 says that peace is the gift of God. He has a formula for peace. His formula is in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, whom He has designated as Prince of Peace. The nations of this world have rejected the peace that God offers. They plan and build for war. Yet there are millions of people around the world who do have peace at this moment because they have found the secret of peace. They have peace in their hearts, as the Bible teaches: “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”The real war in which men are engaged is a war of rebellion against God. This rebellions has brought about destruction, suffering, misery, frustration, and a thousand and one ills to the population of the world. God longs to see this rebellion cease. He has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to the cross as a demonstration of His love and mercy. He asks us to come to that Cross in a repentance of our sins and submission of our will to Him. He promises a peace treaty for all who will come by faith.

Wise old Spurgeon described the peace of God this way:In the resurrection our nature will be full of peace. Jesus Christ would not have said, “Peace be unto you” (Luke 24:36) if there had not been a deep peace within Himself. He was calm and undisturbed. There was much peace about His whole life; but after the resurrection His peace becomes very conspicuous. There is no striving with scribes and Pharisees, there is no battling with anyone after our Lord is risen.Do you have Christ’s peace in your life?
