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:永远的平安(2020.02.15)

我留下平安给你们、我将我的平安赐给你们……——  约14:27

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you . . . —John 14:27

主耶稣说,使人和睦的人有福了:因为他们必称为神的儿子。” 使人和睦的源头在哪里?我们如何才能成为使人和睦的人?我们能否在自己身上找到和平?弗洛伊德告诉我们,和平不过是一种精神态度。摆脱恐惧,甩掉不安,“没错!”我们也能拥有渴望已久的和平。我敬重精神病学的贡献。毫无疑问,它已经帮助了很多人。但它当然只是不理想的替代品,真正的平安只可从上帝而来。如果精神病学将上帝排除在外,我们最终将看到的精神病医生也要彼此寻求治疗。除非在上帝那里找到平安,我们永远也无法在别处获得。正如经上说的,因他使我们和睦

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Where does peacemaking begin? How can we become peacemakers? Can peace be discovered within ourselves? Freud has told us that peace is but a mental attitude. Cast off our phobias, shed our neuroses, and “bingo!”-we’ll have the coveted peace we long for. I respect psychiatry for what it can do. Unquestionably, it has helped many. But it certainly is not satisfactory as a substitute for the peace which can come only from God. If psychiatry leaves God out, ultimately we shall see psychiatrists going to each other for treatment. There can be no peace until we find peace with God. The Bible says, “He is our peace.”

今日祷告:
全能的上帝,你平安的膏满了我的灵,我谦卑地赞美你!

Prayer for the day: The balm of Your peace pours over my soul and I humbly praise You, almighty God.
