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:言语和行动(2020.07.21)

你们的义若不胜于文士和法利塞人的义,断不能进天国。——马太福音5:20

Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 5:20

在这个堕落的社会,去相信,去反抗,去争论,去战斗,去拼搏的意志已经逝去。反而是盲从随波逐流、屈服放弃梦想这些情况发生在罗马也发生在我们身边,同样的状况存在于罗马也存在于我们社会之中。罗马覆灭之前,她的道德标准被弃,家庭破裂,离婚盛行,淫行猖獗。信仰低潮。正如吉本所说“人们讨论信仰多,但是执行少”。

In a decadent society the will to believe, to resist, to contend, to fight, to struggle, is gone. In place of this will to resist, there is the desire to conform, to drift, to follow, to yield, and to give up. This is what happened in Rome, but it also applies to us. The same conditions that prevailed in Rome prevail in our society. Before Rome fell, her standards were abandoned, the family disintegrated, divorce prevailed, immorality was rampant, and faith was at a low ebb. As Gibbon said, “There was much talk of religion, but few practiced it.”

今日祷告:
主耶稣,愿我配得基督徒的名

Prayer for the day:
May I be worthy to bear the name Christian, Lord Jesus.
