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:完全得胜(2020.05.21)

小子们哪,你们是属神的,并且胜了他们;因为那在你们里面的,比那在世界上的更大。——约一4:4

. . . greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.—1 John 4:4  

保罗书信中曾经写到“因为情欲和圣灵相争,圣灵和情欲相争,这两个是彼此相敌,使你们不能做所愿意做的”(加5:17)。在某种程度上,我们里面都会有这种争战。因此,圣经上为我们解释了神所赐的全副军装。但这并不意味着我们要顺其自然接受这种争战,而是应该为争战做好准备,正如圣经上教导“我们并不是与属血气的争战,乃是与天空属灵气的恶魔争战”。

圣经以弗所书第六章告诉我们该如何为争战做准备。同时,请记住“罪在哪里显多,恩典就更显多了”。我们可以全然得胜。我们只要把自己完全交托给神,魔鬼就会从我们面前逃走,神应许我们“罪必不能做你们的王”。

Paul once wrote, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other; so that ye can not do the things that ye would” (Galatians 5:17). This is the battle or the tension that is present in us to a greater or lesser degree. So, you see, the spiritual lag that you feel is explained in the Bible. That does not mean that you accept it as the way it should be. You should make all necessary preparations for this battle which the Bible says “is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces.”

In Ephesians 6 we read that the Bible tells what preparation you should make. In the meantime, always remember that “where sin abounds, grace did much more abound.” You can have complete victory! We are told to submit ourselves unto God, and the devil will flee from us. We are also promised that “sin shall not reign over us.”

今日祷告:
主啊,像保罗一样,我每天都与撒旦争战,我愿意把生活中的一切都向你交托,因我知道争战早已得胜。

Lord, like Paul I battle daily with Satan. I submit everything in my life to You, knowing that already the fight has been won.
