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:信仰的武器(2019.11.08)

使我们胜了世界的,就是我们的信心。约翰一书54

This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. 1 John 5:4

撒旦的诡计之一就是在我们需要寻求上帝帮助的时候,特别是在与魔鬼抗争的时候,他会设法转移我们的心意。他会告诉我们,我们只能孤军奋战。但是,上帝知道我们需要他。圣经警告说:务要谨守,警醒。因为你们的仇敌魔鬼,如同吼叫的狮子,遍地游行,寻找可吞吃的人。(彼前58

如果你遇到一头狮子,你怎么办?你肯定掉腿就跑!如果你手上有任何武器,你肯定也会做好奋力反击的准备。这就如同我们对魔鬼的抗争。魔鬼和诱惑来到时,我们首先应该设法逃离。如果他们追着我们,我们要设法拿起任何可能的武器回击。好消息:上帝已经预备了最好的武器:主的话语(圣经),他的天使,他的圣灵,主内弟兄姊妹的勉励和祷告这些都是上帝的预备。

我们并不孤独,你不要害怕!

One of Satan’s sly devices is to divert our minds from the help God offers us in our struggles against evil, telling us we have to fight the battle alone. But God knows we need His help.

The Bible warns, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8). What would you do if you met a lion? You’d probably run, and you’d probably grab any weapon you could to fend him off if he attacked.

And that is true in our struggles against evil. When evil and temptation stalk us, our first response should be to flee. And when they still attack, we should use every weapon we have to drive them away. The good news is this: God gas provided the weapons! His word, His angels, His Spirit, the encouragement and prayers of our brothers and sisters in Christ-these and more are “weapons” God provides.

We aren’t in this battle alone-so why act like it?
