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:天使保护(2019.09.12)

在今世自守、公义、敬虔 度日。多2:12

We should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age. Titus 2:12

上帝要我们追求公义和敬虔。因为圣经告诉我们,我们的公义和敬虔,是进天国不可缺少的条件。我在上帝和基督耶稣并蒙拣选的天使面前嘱咐你,要遵守这些话,不可存成见,行事也不可有偏心。(提前5:21)

想一想:天使都在一直关注着我们基督徒的生活!他们会不会只是出于好奇:怀疑我们基督徒是否对上帝有信心?当然不会!他们知道时日不多,我们基督徒所作的都是有意义的。永生的福乐事关重大。在这个属灵属世的争战中,我们无所惧怕!

不要以为,你怎么活着都无所谓。有所谓的!上帝在看着你,他的天使在看着你!你周围的人也在看着你!耶稣说:你们的光也当这样照在人前,叫他们看见你们的好行为,便将荣耀归给你们在天上的父。(太5:16)

God’s command to live righteous and godly lives should sober us, for the Bible tells us that our lives are Heaven’s primary concern. Paul said, “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of the chosen angles, that you guard and keep [these rules]” (1 Tim. 5:21).

Think of it: Even the angels of Heaven are constantly watching how we live as Christians! Is it merely curiosity on their part, idly wondering if we will fail or prove faithful? No. They know the hour is urgent and that what we do is important. Eternal issues are at stake, and we are in the midst of a cosmic struggle.

Don’t think it doesn’t matter how you live; it does! It matters to God, and it matters to His holy angels. It also matters to those around you. Jesus said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt 5:16).
