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:发光如星(2020.03.26)

光来到世间。世人因自己的行为是恶的,不爱光倒爱黑暗。——约翰福音3:19

. . . light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light . . . —John 3:19

归根结底,此世的问题在于“光照在黑暗里,黑暗却不接受光”。(约翰福音1:5)基督复活之光芒照耀着,但人类却拒绝接受这含有饶恕、救赎和拯救的治愈之光。因此,现今绝大部分人都不接受基督,徘徊在属灵的黑暗中盲目走向毁灭、审判和地狱。在创世之前的黑暗、空虚中,上帝说“要有光”。在人灵性昏暗、意志失丧、良心沉沦之时,只要你愿意,上帝可使这光渗入你生活的黑夜,并将之变为白昼。若你心中有属灵的幽暗、困惑、沮丧、不安和恐惧,就让这神圣之光因信照入你的心底吧!

The world’s difficulty is summed up in the words, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness understood it not.” The light of Easter is shining, but men refuse to turn to its healing rays for forgiveness, redemption, and salvation. Thus Christ is being rejected by the overwhelming majority of humanity today. As a result, men stumble on in spiritual darkness blindly toward destruction, judgment, and hell. In the midst of the darkness and “void” at the creation of the world, God said, “Let there be light.” In your own mind-darkened, will-paralyzed, conscience-dulled soul, God can make the light penetrate and turn the darkness of your own life into day, if you will let Him. Many of you are living in spiritual darkness, confused, frustrated, disturbed, and fearful. Let the Light come into your heart by faith.

每日祷告:
复活节期间,当我们再次经历你荣耀的再次创造,我追念你复活的荣耀。我赞美你,耶稣基督,因你的光照进我曾阴霾的内心。

Prayer for the day: At Easter time, as nature breaks through into glorious re-creation, I am reminded of the glory of Your resurrection! I praise You, Lord Jesus, for Your light which shines through the dimness of my soul.
