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:上帝的奥秘(2020.09.21)

“自从造天地以来,神的永能和神性是明明可知的,虽是眼不能见,但借着所造之物就可以晓得,……”----1:20

Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of his existence and great eternal power . . .—Romans 1:20 (TLB)

如果你想彻底地合理化证明上帝,你会失败。上帝有一些奥秘是我们今生永远不会明白的。渺小有限的,并受时间与空间限制的人怎么能明白一个无限的上帝呢!在物质领域中不可能解释许多奥秘,对此,我们不应该感到奇怪。

谁能解释为什么物体总是被往地球的中心吸引?谁能弄清楚地心引力的真相:牛顿发现了它,但却不能解释它。谁能解释繁殖的奇迹?……因此,许多的证据和参数可以证明有一位上帝。

然而,最显明的真理是:上帝不能仅仅靠合理化证明来证实。他不可能包含在一个小小的人造试管中或局限于代数公式。如果上帝可能被人的头脑完全证明,那他就不会比证明的他的头脑伟大。

If you try to rationalize God exhaustively, you will fail. There are mysteries about God that we will never understand in this life. How can the small and finite, limited to time and space, understand an infinite God! We should not think it strange that it is impossible to explain many mysteries in the realm of matter.

Who can explain why objects are always attracted to the center of the earth? Who can fathom the law of gravity? Newton discovered it, but he could not explain it. Who can explain the miracle of reproduction? . . . Thus many evidences and many arguments could be advanced to indicate there is a God.

Yet the plain truth is this: God cannot be proved by mere rationalization. He cannot be contained in a tiny man-made test tube or confined to an algebraic formula. If God can be fully proved by the human mind, then He is no greater than the mind that proves Him.

每日祷告:
全能的主上帝啊,虽然用我有限的头脑不能完全明白你的伟大,但我在心灵的宁静中感觉到了你的存在,我心喜乐!

Prayer for the day:
Lord God almighty, although my finite mind cannot comprehend the magnitude of Your greatness, I have felt Your presence in the quiet of my heart and I am gladdened.
