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(2020.11.26)

却因信他就有说不出来、满有荣光的大喜乐。—— 彼得前书 1:8

Now you are happy with the inexpressible joy that comes from heaven itself.—1 Peter 1:8 (TLB)

基督徒享受生活,也享受彼此。当孩子们在家中看不到喜乐,在你的基督信仰上看不到喜乐,他们便不会对基督信仰感兴趣。当他们看到你在兴奋的参加球赛,看着电视,或是在精神上萎靡不振,他们会很快发现基督信仰对你并没有多大的意义。你在信仰上就会失去话语权。我的妻子说,让孩子喜欢吃饭的最好方法就是让他看到他的父母在享受饮食。如果我们在信仰上没有追求,就无法把我们的孩子带到耶稣那里。

Christians are to enjoy life and enjoy one another. When children see no joy in their home, no joy in your Christianity, they will not be attracted by it. When they see you excited about going to a ball game, or watching television, and then dragging around to do spiritual things, they will soon get the idea that Christianity does not mean much to you. Your attitude will rub off. My wife says that the best way to get a child to eat his food is to see his parents enjoying theirs. Our children will not be attracted to Christ if we make Him seem dull.

今日祷告:
耶稣,我要每日亲近祢,让我身边的人看到祢的喜乐。

Prayer for the day:
May I live so close to You, Jesus, that those around me will see Your joy.
