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:恩典够用(2020.07.23)

我的恩典够你用的,因为我的能力是在人的软弱上显得完全。——哥林多后书12:9

I am with you, that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.—2 Corinthians 12:9 (TLB)

一位想让年轻暴徒们认识基督的拘留所所长说作为一名基督徒是世上最困难的事。有什么比爱你的仇敌更困难?有一个男孩,在这个拘留所成长为一名坚定的信徒,他说在这个团体里,我们是兄弟姐妹,都是人类。一开始我觉得这个太难了,但后来我听说,在基督里一切皆有可能。于是困难消失了。一个人在认识耶稣基督以前不算是一个完全的人。是的,基督徒的生活是艰难困苦的;它是充满挑战的。它值得人付出所有去跟随耶稣基督。你很快会发现十字架并不比神的恩典好,当你背起这不受欢迎的十字架,不管你是什么人,你会发现神的恩典就在十字架里,比你需要的更加丰盛。

A director of a camp whose purpose is to lead young hoodlums to Christ says, “Being a Christian is the toughest thing in the world. What’s tougher than loving your enemy?” One boy, who developed into a rugged disciple of Christ at this camp, said, “In this outfit we’re all brothers and we’re all men. It was too tough for me at first, but then I heard that through Christ everything is possible. Then the roughness went away. I say a man is not a man, not a full man, until he gets to know Jesus Christ.” Yes, the Christian life is tough and rough; but it’s challenging. It’s worth everything it costs to be a follower of Jesus Christ. You will soon find that the cross is not greater than His grace. When you pick up the cross of unpopularity, wherever you may be, you will find God’s grace is there, more than sufficient to meet your every need.

今日祷告:
主耶稣,告诉我你丰盛的恩典够我们用。

Prayer for the day:
Lord Jesus, teach me the lesson that Your grace is abundantly sufficient to meet my every need.
