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:改变生命的力量(2020.02.09)

我如今在肉身活着,是因信神的儿子而活,他是爱我,为我舍己。——加2:20

I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.—Galatians 2:20

有一天,我单单出于信心,决定要信靠耶稣基督的应许。若是凭借个人的聪明,我永远也来不到主耶稣的面前,任谁也不能做到,这并不意味着基督徒拒绝理性。上帝赐给了我们智慧,让我们在恰当的时候使用理性,但是最终决定性的一步则靠的是信心。一个人能够借着对罪的忏悔实现在信仰中接纳基督么?我只能说我一辈子都是这样做的。也受到了确实的果效。它没有使我变完全,但却改变了我的人生方向。我找到了生命的新境界。我发现了一种全新的爱人的能力。

One day, by a simple act of faith, I decided to take Jesus Christ at His word. I could not come by way of the intellect alone; no one can. That does not mean that we reject reason. God has given us minds and the ability to reason wherever reason is appropriate, but the final and decisive step is taken by faith. I came by faith. Does it work when a person comes, repenting of his sins, to receive Christ by faith? I can only tell you that it worked in my own life. Something did happen to me. I didn’t become perfect, but the direction of my life was changed. I found a new dimension to life. I found a new capacity to love that I had never known before.

今日祷告:
我的主,在我接纳你的那一天,乃是凭借了小孩子一样的信心。我的整个生命都发生了改变!

Prayer for the day: The day I received You, Lord, it was a childlike act of faith. My whole life was changed!
