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).

我是葡萄树,你们是枝子。常在我里面的,我也常在他里面,这人就多结果子。 约 15:5

基督徒在家里如何活出见证,是一个不大不小的挑战。很多人在外面、在朋友面前、在公共场合都表现的非常好,相比之下,在家里却总是差强人意。其实,在家里,才是没有面具的自己。家人最清楚我们的疲劳和压力。同样,家人也最清楚基督如何在我们身上作工。

如果我是真的基督徒,我就不会在家里表现出坏脾气、不耐烦、挑剔、讽刺、不友善、怀疑、自私、懒惰,等等。相反,每天我都家里力求呈现圣灵的果子:仁爱、喜乐、和平、忍耐、恩慈、良善、信实、温柔、节制。(加5:22-23) 如果你在家里一直坚持有这样的见证,你的家一定能够变得非常不同

Christian Virtues at Home

I am the vine, you are the branches.

He who abides in Me,

and I in him, bears much fruit.

John 15:2

How we live at home is the acid test for any Christian man or woman. It is far easier to live an excellent life among our friends, when we are putting our best foot forward and are conscious of public opinions, than it is to live for Christ in our home.

Our own family circle sees us in our unguarded moments. They see us when exhaustion and stress fray our nerves. Our own family circle knows whether Chris lives in and through us.

If I am a true Christian, I will not give way at home to bad temper, impatience, faultfinding, sarcasm, unkindness, suspicion, selfishness, or laziness. Instead, each day my life will display the fruit of the Spirit, which is “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Gal. 5:22-21 NIV).  How different would your home be if you consistently practiced these Christ-like virtues?
