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:寻求满足(2019.10.30)

你们要留意听我的话,就能吃那美物,得享肥甘,心中喜乐。以赛亚书55:2

Let your soul delight itself in abundance. Isaiah 55:2

耶稣基督预备开始他的事工的时候,撒旦魔鬼企图用不同试探来诱惑耶稣。今天,撒旦用同样的试探来诱惑我们。试探之一就是物质。耶稣在旷野里禁食了四十天,撒旦就利用耶稣的饥饿,诱使他用自己的超自然能力,把石头变成食物。但是耶稣说,“人活着,不是单靠食物,乃是靠上帝口里所出的一切的话。”(太44)。记住,不是撒旦口里,是上帝 口里!

食物是必须的 但不是最重要的,如同撒旦所提议的;娱乐和休闲也是可以的 但不是第一位的; 钱财也是不可少的,但是钱财要为人服务,而不是人为钱财服务。大先知以赛亚说,你们留意听我的话,就能吃那美物,得享肥甘,心中喜乐。要在满足中喜乐 这种满足是上帝预备的 ,物质的和灵性的。特别是与上帝同在的时候,得享肥甘,心中喜乐。而魔鬼撒旦总是给你提供一些相反的东西,要拒绝它们!

When Satan tried to trap Jesus at the beginning of His ministry, he used the same temptations he uses today.

One trap was the lure of things. Jesus had fasted for forty days, and Satan tried to take advantage of His hunger by urging Him to use His supernatural power to turn stones into bread. But Jesus replied, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt 4:4). Not from Satan’s mouth, But from God’s!

Bread is important- but it isn’t all-important, as Satan was suggesting. Please and recreation have their place-but they mustn’t have first place. Money is necessary, but money must serve us; we are not to serve it.

Isaiah said, “Listen carefully to Me . . . and let your soul delight itself in abundance” (Isa. 55:2). Yes, delight in abundance-the abundance God gives you, both material and spiritual. Especially delight in the abundance of joy that comes from His presence. Satan will always offer you substitutes. Refuse them!
