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:最大的需要(2020.06.23)

神差他的儿子降世,不是要定世人的罪,乃是要叫世人因他得救。——约3:17

God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.—John 3:17 (TLB)

你可以在美国的每一个城市甚至每一个街道建立公立学校或者大学,但是你仅仅通过智育无法阻止美国的道德败坏。如果忽略人性中最重要的部分,教育不能称之为教育;如果全世界施行片面的教育,仅仅教导人的大脑而不引导人的灵魂,远远不如没有教育。只考虑人类文明不引导他们归向基督,就好比通过把一只狼洗干净,并为他们披上羊皮,使狼转变为羊一样。“怜恤人的有福了!因为他们必蒙怜恤”(太5:7)。世界需要的是来自神的恩典,爱以及平安,藉着神的能力使他们回转得重生,而非其他任何东西。

You can put a public school and university in the middle of every block of every city in America—but you will never keep America from rotting morally by mere intellectual education. Education cannot be properly called education which neglects the most important parts of man’s nature. Partial education throughout the world is far worse than none at all if we educate the mind but not the soul. To think of civilizing men without converting them to Christ is about as wise as to think about transforming wolves into lambs merely by washing them and putting on them a fleece of wool. “Happy are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy.” The mercy the world needs is the grace, love, and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is His transforming and regenerating power that the world needs more than anything else.、

今日祷告:
慈爱的神,愿我的生活被你的爱充满,使我能够去爱别人。

Merciful Lord, may my life be filled with Your outflowing love for others.
