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:罪的毒钩​(2019.12.02)

受造之物仍然指望脱离败坏的辖制,得享上帝儿女自由的荣耀。罗8:21

The creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay.Romans 8:21

最近我听说办公室的一些电脑遭到病毒的攻击。我的同事在打开邮件的时候,突然电脑就死机了,而且不能再正常使用。经检修,并恢复整个被腐蚀的硬盘,电脑才恢复。我禁不住要想起另一种病毒--罪的病毒。上帝创造我们的始祖的时候,他们是完美的,没有罪,跟上帝的关系也是亲近的,并一切得到满足。然而,他们却要悖逆上帝,让罪来到这个世界,让人类感染“病毒”。我们与上帝的关系就破坏了。我们就软弱了,腐败了,整个世界堕落了。

感谢上帝,耶稣来了,控制了这个病毒。他进入我们生命的里面,重新塑造我们。病毒不能在影响我们。有一天,上帝会彻底消灭这个病毒,更新整个创造,有一个新天新地。

Recently some computers in our office were attacked by a major computer virus. Thinking they were opening a legitimate e-mail, the staff suddenly found their computers running amuck, unable to function as they were designed to do. Only a major reprogramming or their corrupted hard drives, I was told, restored them to usefulness.

I couldn’t help but compare this to another virus-the “virus” of sin. God created our first parents perfect and without sin, their every need met and their relationship with God unblemished. But then they rebelled against God, sin entered the world-and since that day the human heart has been infected with the deadly “virus” of sin. Out fellowship with God was destroyed, we became morally weak and corrupt, and even all creation was affected.

But Christ came to conquer the “virus” of sin! When He enters our lives, He begins to remake us from within. The “virus” no longer has absolute control. And someday God will remove the “virus” of sin forever, and all creation will be renewed.
