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:基督徒生活(2020.11.12)

在世上你们有苦难,但你们可以放心,我已经胜了世界。—— 约翰福音 16:33

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.—John 16:33

你若期待有任何捷径,其结果注定是失望。所有了解圣经的人都知道基督徒的生活被比喻为体育竞赛或是争战,这没有一件是容易的。耶稣告诫祂的跟随者要付代价,肯定没有任何捷径可言,因为没有付出便没有收获。

基督徒唯有全力以赴,义无反顾的走在这条路上,才会过上最合神心意的生活。那些试图向生活妥协的基督徒,那些没有团契,靠自己去面对所有问题的基督徒,会发现生活充满了苦难。因为每次的试炼和考验基督都会给我们足够的恩典来战胜它,正是在我们的软弱中,我们变为刚强。

You should not expect the easy way, for if you do you are certainly destined for disappointment. Any person who knows the Bible knows that the Christian life is likened to an athletic contest or to warfare, and neither one is easy. Jesus warned His followers to count carefully the cost, and that certainly does not speak of an easy way. But there is no good thing that comes without cost.

The Christian life is the most satisfying, but only when we actually go all out and all the way. It is the Christian who tries to compromise who finds life miserable, for he has all the problems, without the fellowship that comes through surrender. For every trial and test, Christ supplies an abundance of grace with which to bear it, and in our weakness we are made strong.

今日祷告:
主耶稣,当祢将一切加给我时,请让我永远不要寻找捷径。

Prayer for the day:
Let me never look for the easy way when You, Lord Jesus, gave everything for me.
