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:坚固保障(2019.07.13)

我总不撇下你,也不丢弃你。来13:5

I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

毫无疑问,你们仍然在和魔鬼撒旦作属灵的争战。魔鬼撒旦费尽心思来阻挠你、击败你。永远不能轻看魔鬼的诡计,甚至误会他的意图。神非常要教我们如何防卫自己。但撒旦总是从我们最软弱的地方进攻我们,让我们不能为神所用。

于是,神就提供了属灵的操练方法,如同我们如何健身。神提供了一切可能的资源来供我们使用,包括读圣经、作祷告、有信心、行义事,并有圣灵的同在作保障。和健身一样,我们必须勤奋、坚持。神没有说让我们没有烦恼,但应许和我们一起经历烦恼。不能忘记,因为基督的舍命和复活,撒旦已经被打败。

有一天,这个争战会结束,基督最终彻底得胜。 

Never doubt that you are in the midst of a battle-a spiritual battle with Satan, who will do everything he can to discourage and defeat you. Never underestimate his determination or misunderstand his intentions.

God wants to teach us how to defend ourselves against sin and Satan. Satan, the ultimate bully, attacks us at our weakest points and wants to defeat us so that we will not be effective for God.

God offers spiritual “training” to build us up inside in much the same way that physical exercise can build us up on the outside.  He has also provided all the resources we need to defend ourselves and keep Satan at bay. These include the Bible, prayer, faith, righteous living, and the Holy Spirit within us.

But, like physical training, we must be diligent in their application. God has not promised to shield us from trouble, but He has promised to protect us  in the midst of trouble. Most of all, never forget that because of Christ’s death and resurrection, Satan is already a defeated foe-and someday the war will be over.
