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).

万军之耶和华说:不是依靠势力,不是倚靠才能,乃是依靠我的灵才能成事。——撒加利亚书46

Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts . . . —Zechariah 4:6 (TLB)

耶稣钉十字架之后,被围困的门徒绝望的说,“但我们素来所盼望要赎以色列民的,就是他。”(路2421)他们里面痛苦、绝望,甚至悲惨极了。生活失去了意义和目的。但是当耶稣的复活向他们显明时,祂里面有真正的目的和理由。生活便被赋予了新的意义

戴维·利文斯敦曾在格拉斯哥大学演讲。当他开始讲话时,他勇敢的面对他在非洲的斗争期间造成的身体缺陷,一些疾病曾近30次让他疲惫、憔悴。他的双臂曾被狮子压碎,在身体的两侧下垂着。在讲完这些考验和磨难后,他说,“你想知道是什么支持了我度过这么多年背井离乡的生活吗?我听不懂那里的语言,那里的人们对我持怀疑的态度,甚至对我有敌意。答案是,‘看,我与你同在,直到世界的末了’。凡事上我都认定这句话,并且神从不失信。

After the crucifixion the beleaguered disciples despaired and said, “We had hoped that He was the one to redeem Israel” (Luke 24:21, RSV). There was anguish, despair, and tragedy in their midst. Life had lost its meaning and purpose. But when the resurrection became apparent, life took on a new meaning. It had purpose and reason.

David Livingstone once addressed a group of students at Glasgow University. When he rose to speak, he bore on his body the marks of his African struggles. Several illnesses on nearly 30 occasions had left him gaunt and haggard. His left arm, crushed by a lion, hung limp by his side. After describing his trials and tribulations, he said, “Would you like to have me tell you what supported me through all the years of exile among people whose language I could not understand, and whose attitude toward me was always uncertain and often hostile? It was this, ‘Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.’ On these words I staked everything, and they never failed.”

今日祷告:
主啊,因你的大爱,我不觉孤独。感谢神,我的救主。

Prayer for the day:
I am never alone because of Your love. Thank You, my Lord and Savior.
