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).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:基督之心(2019.3.9)

你们当以基督耶稣的心为心。腓立比书2:5

基督耶稣的话语是有绝对权威的,也是极为全面、极为深刻的。他要这个世界悔改,态度是斩钉截铁的。他从来没有惧怕什么人或者什么组织,因为他知道自己就是真理,不会因为这个世界而随意改变,曲意逢迎。

然而,我们却经常惧怕。我们容易受到那些也惧怕的人的影响。我们惧怕被拒绝,惧怕因为信仰而被攻击,惧怕我们的信心会摇动。如果真的是这样,我们应该好好反思,我们是否从内心深处接受了信仰。

耶稣没有这样的惧怕,他也不需要为自己辩护、设防。他很清楚委婉和妥协的区别。我们也当效法基督。耶稣是道路、真理和生命(约14:6)。永远不要失去对福音真理的信心。和耶稣一样,惟用爱心说诚实话(弗4:15)。

The Mind of Christ

Let this mind be in you

Which was also in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:5

Jesus had the most all-encompassing mind this world has ever seen. His conviction s were so strong, so answering that He was not afraid to mingle with any group, secure in the knowledge that He would not be contained or swayed.

Fear makes us willing to give voice to our convictions or to listen to those of others-fear of rejection, fear our beliefs will be attacked, fear our faith might be shaken. But if that is the case, perhaps we need to examine just how deep our convictions really are.

Jesus had no such fear, no need to fence Himself off from others for His own protection. He knew the difference between graciousness and compromise, and we would do well to follow His example.

Jesus alone is “the way, the truth, and the life” (john 4:16). Never lose your confidence in the truth of the gospel! But-like Jesus-may you always be “speaking the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15).
