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:上帝无止境的爱(2020.03.24)

凡接待他的,就是信他名的人。他就赐他们权柄,作上帝的儿女。——约翰福音1:12

But to all who received him, he gave the right to become children of God.—John 1:12 (TLB)

谁能诉说或度量上帝的爱呢?他就是爱。但上帝的爱并不表示一切都是温馨、美好、愉快的,没有对罪恶的惩罚。他的公义要求有罪必有惩罚。出于爱,他为犯罪之人提供了一个救赎的计划:即通过耶稣基督被钉在十字架而赦免、洁净人的罪过。因着爱,上帝把耶稣基督送上了十字架。

无论你所犯何种罪过,无论这罪是如何的邪恶、耻辱、恐怖,上帝依然爱你。纵然上帝的爱是伟大的,但上帝不会强迫人接受。信仰与否在于你自己,你有接受或拒绝的自由,这是其他人无法取代的。

Who can describe or measure the love of God? God is love. But the fact that God is love does not mean that everything is sweet, beautiful, and happy, and that God’s love could not possibly allow punishment for sin. God’s holiness demands that all sin be punished, but God’s love provided a plan of redemption and salvation for sinful man. God’s love provided the cross of Jesus Christ by which man can have forgiveness and cleansing. It was the love of God that sent Jesus Christ to the cross.

No matter what sin you have committed, no matter how black, dirty, shameful, or terrible it may be, God loves you. Yet this love of God that is immeasurable, unmistakable, and unending, this love of God that reaches to wherever a man is, can be entirely rejected. God will not force Himself upon anyone against his will. It is your part to believe. It is your part to receive. Nobody else can do it for you.

每日祷告:
父啊,求你的爱充满我。纵然我是罪人,耶稣却为我钉死在十字架上,并且洗净我一切的罪恶。我虽不配,唯有感谢上帝所赐的这份礼物。

Prayer for the day: Your love overwhelms me, Father. In spite of my sin, Jesus' death on the cross can cleanse me from all the past. Humbly I accept this gift, Lord.
