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: 家庭的信仰(2019.11.03)

房屋因智慧建造,又因聪明立稳。箴言24:3

Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established. Proverbs 24:3

家是世上最重要的地方。家也是上帝最早给人类的礼物。家不是社会学家、经济学家或者政府官员所发明的,决定用来协调社会稳定发展的工具。在城市和政府诞生之前,在有语言之前,在民族、庙宇、教会之前,就有了家。在家里,性格和品质得到塑造,价值观得到定型,目标得到确定。这些将影响你的一生。当然,如果这些没有被塑造的正确,而且也没有上帝来帮助,同样产生一些后果,也将影响你的一生。

今天,魔鬼撒旦对家庭的攻击前所未有。如何防备这些攻击?最好的防备只能是上帝的话语圣经。一家人在一起读圣经。一家人在一起灵修。一家人在一起每天彼此祷告。守护你的家庭,不要分裂。最重要的,把你的婚姻和家庭都交托给基督,让他成为你家庭和生活的全部的中心。

The family is the most important institution in the world. It was god’s idea in the first place. It was not the invention of sociologists or economists or government bureaucrats who decided it would make society operate more smoothly. Families existed before cities and governments, before written language, nations, temples, and churches.

In the home, character and integrity are formed, values are made clear, and goals are set. These last a lifetime, and if they aren’t formed correctly, that too, will result in patterns-bad patterns- that last a life time if God doesn’t intervene.

Today, Satan is attacking the family as never before. But what are out defenses against such attacks?

As always, our best defense is the Word of God. Read the Bible together as a family. Have family devotions. Pray for one another daily by name. Be on guard against the forces that tend to pull families apart today. And most of all, commit your marriage to Christ, and make Him the center of your home-and your life.
