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:不会太迟(2018-6-21)

“凡我所吩咐你们的,都教训他们遵守,我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。”马太福音 28:20

Go ye’ therefore, and teach all nations… teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.  Matthew 28:20

有时候我在想,这个世界是不是已经到了最后的辉煌时期。我们可能要面对世界范围的属灵大觉醒和生命大复兴。这是一个荣耀而伟大的时代。我发现全世界都有人在回应耶稣基督的福音,只要我们把生命信息简单、有爱心地传扬出去。特别是在东欧。我去俄罗斯和罗马尼亚布道,能够感受得到。

也有一些人处于绝望中。我每天都收到一些来信,他们失望、沮丧、抑郁、放弃。他们充满悲观情绪。毫无士气。一个英国人来信说:一切都太迟了。这不是实话。我们并没有失败。“神的道却不被捆绑。”(提后 2:9 )我们还有圣灵、教会、祷告的人们。我们还要在很多地方传扬福音。司布真告诉我们,我们只有感受福音的真理,才能从福音里不断学习。科学知识可以通过脑袋学习,基督十字架的真理只能用心灵领受。

I sometimes think our world is on the verge of a great gathering which might well be the final one. We may be on the threshold of a mighty world-wide spiritual awakening and harvest. This is a glorious time to be alive.I have found that people everywhere, all over the world, will respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ if we present it simply, with Christian compassion. This is true especially in Eastern Europe, as my trips into Russia and Romania have shown.

Yet there are some who are in deep despair. I receive letters daily from people who are discouraged, depressed, and ready to give up. They are yielding to the pessimism of our times to the mood and spirit of our day. A man in England wrote, “It’s too late to do anything about the world.”That isn’t true. All is not lost. We still have the Bible, and “…the word of God is not bound” (2 Timothy 2:9). We still have the Holy Spirit. We still have the fellowship of believers. We still have the prayers of God’s people. We still have an open door to most of the world for proclaiming the Gospel. Spurgeon reminds us, “We can learn nothing of the gospel except by feeling its truths. There are some science that may be learned by the head, but the science of Christ crucified can only be learned by the heart.”
