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:如何处理试探(2020.09.23)

“……神是信实的,必不叫你们受试探过于所能受的;……”——林前10:13

. . . who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able . . .—1 Corinthians 10:13

撒但给你杂念的目的是从你的心里偷走真理的种子。应该鼓励你的是;你该知道撒但把你当做一个足够好的基督徒来作为使用的目标。

基督徒与非基督徒之间的区别是:虽然他们都有善良和邪恶的思想。基督却赐给他的信徒力里去选择正确的事而不是错误的事。你看到一个男人去祷告,胳膊下夹着一本圣经。他无疑是被试探是呆在家里,还是去打保龄球,或去做其他一些事情。但是,当这些不同的想法出现的时候,他做了正确的选择,去了教堂。

另一个男子在夜色中走进了酒吧。毫无疑问,他想到最好是呆在家里与家人在一起。但他屈服于消极的想法,屈服于他的低级欲望。你不拥有试探,但是你来决定它们, 这是重要的。

It is Satan’s purpose to steal the seed of truth from your heart by sending distracting thoughts. It should encourage you to know that the devil considers you a good enough Christian to use as a target.

The difference between a Christian and a non-Christian is: though they both may have good and evil thoughts, Christ gives His followers strength to select the right rather than the wrong. You see a man going to prayer meeting with a Bible under his arm. That man was undoubtedly tempted to stay at home, go bowling, or to some other activity. But, as these diverse thoughts came to his mind, he made the right selection, and headed for the church.

Another man walks through the night to a bar. It no doubt occurred to him that he had best stay home with his family. But he yielded to the negative thought, and gave in to his lower appetites.It is not the temptations you have, but the decision you make about them that counts.

每日祷告:
主啊,每天都需要做决定。请赐给我你的力量与智慧,帮助我做正确的决定。

Prayer for the day:
Decisions will have to be made each day, Lord. With Your strength and wisdom, help me to make the right ones
