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:​真实与虚伪(2020.07.28)

好叫世人知道你大能的作为,并你国度威严的荣耀。—— 145:12

. . . make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. —Psalm 145:12

几年前我听说一个牧师有一个做演员的朋友。这个演员经常会吸引很多很多的人,而这位牧师也经常去一些教堂讲道。有一天,牧师对他的朋友说:“为什么你总是能吸引如此多的观众,而我这却几乎没什么人呢?你的话纯属谎言,而我的是不可改变的事实。”这个演员的回答相当的简单。“我表现出我的虚伪但它好像是真实的,而你呈现出的真实好像它是虚伪的样子。”

因此,很多时候,我非常害怕我们基督徒由于缺乏上帝对我们的教导而通过我们的行为方式传递出去的真理是虚伪的。

Some years ago I heard about a clergyman who had a friend who was an actor. The actor was drawing large crowds of people, and the clergyman was preaching to a few in the church. He said to his actor friend, “Why is it that you draw great crowds, and I have no audience at all? Your words are sheer fiction, and mine are unchangeable truth.” The actor’s reply was quite simple. “I present my fiction as though it were truth; you present your truth as though it were fiction.” I fear that so often we Christians give the idea that the truth is fiction by the way we live and by the lack of dedication to the teachings of our Lord.

今日祷告:
主耶稣,我将我的生命完全的交托与你,以便使人知道我所爱和所服侍的救主是真实的!

Prayer for the day:
Lord Jesus, I would completely yield my life to You, so that others may know that the Savior I love and serve is the truth!
