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:把为主奔跑当成生命中唯一的事(2017-3-19)

为主奔跑 Run

读经

你要逃避少年的私欲,同那清心祷告主的人追求公义、信德、仁爱、和平。” 提摩太后书 2:22

Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 T IMOT H Y 2 : 2 2

默想

生活犹如跑马拉松。知道这是一个漫长的旅途,就要有充分的准备。你不可能某天早晨醒来后,突然决定出去跑个全马。你需要足够的耐力,以实现长距离的奔跑。你更需要专业的训练、有规律的生活,要坚定目标和方向,不要看见可口的巧克力甜圈圈就忍不住去拿。很多原计划跑马拉松的,慢慢就淡出了。很遗憾,他们错过了追求潜能的机会。为主作工也是这样。如果没有恒心,你就会失去很多改变别人生命的机会,会让很多有需要的人得不到盼望。你也不能够和那些跑到终点的人共享喜乐。他们凭着信心,努力前行,一生蒙福。

耶稣拣选你,为他跑马拉松。所以,把这事当成生命中唯一的事。远离搅扰自己的烦乱,直奔建立自己的未来。

Life is a lot like a marathon. Learning how to run over a long distance is the key to finishing well. You can’t just wake up one day and go out and run a marathon—you need stamina for long-distance running. You need training and discipline to stay focused on the big picture, especially while being tempted to grab a dozen caramel-glazed, chocolate-filled donuts. Many runners have gotten derailed over the years. Sadly, they have missed the opportunity to pursue their full potential. They have missed the chance to change people’s lives, to give hope where it was needed, and to rejoice at the finish line with others who have faithfully put one foot ahead of the next for an entire lifetime.

Jesus created you to run the marathon of life. So run as if it was the only thing you had to do. Run from the things thatmess you up, and run toward the things that build you up.

祷告

耶稣,我有时候很软弱,活不出信心,求你带领和栽培,让我可以为你奔跑。阿们。

Dear Jesus, I don’t always feel like exercising my faith, but I pray that you will push me like my trainer today so that I can learn to run for you. Amen.

行动

出去跑一圈。找一些人一起跑,一起分享上帝的恩典和见证。

Go for a run today. Find others who will celebrate the steps that you are taking in your life.
