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).

中文灵修:心的回转

如果你们听了他的道,领了他的教,学了他的真理,就要脱去你们从前行为上的旧人,这旧人是因私欲的迷惑渐渐变坏的……(弗4:20-22

保罗在回转之前很悖逆,骄傲残酷,他也迫害过很多基督徒,并且试图毁灭他们。他曾经真的很顽固、自私、自夸。但是当他写信给加拉太教会的时候,他说“圣灵所结的果子是…温柔、良善、顺服”。保罗的顺服来自神,不是人为的。温柔并不是我们的本性,反之,我们的本性里充满骄傲自大。这就是为什么新生对我们来说如此重要的原因,耶稣不单教导尼哥底母也教导我们每一个人“你们必须重生”。重生带来顺服,我们必须改变自己的本性。

今日祷告:
天父,求你给我一颗顺服的心,就像主耶稣基督顺服你一样。
奉主的名求,阿们

Daily Devotion:Change of Heart

Christ taught you! If you have really heard his voice . . . then throw off your old evil nature-the old you that was a partner in your evil ways . . . —Ephesians 4:20-22 (TLB)

Jesus had a humble heart. If He abides in us, pride will never dominate our lives. Jesus had a loving heart. If He dwells within us, hatred and bitterness will never rule us. Jesus had a forgiving and understanding heart. If He lives within us, mercy will temper our relationships with our fellowmen. Jesus had an unselfish heart. If He lives in us, selfishness will not predominate, but service to God and others will come before our selfish interests. You say, “That’s a big order!” I admit that. It would be impossible if you had to measure up to Him in your own strength and with your natural heart. Paul recognized that he could never attain this heart purity by his own striving.

Prayer for the day:
Heavenly Father, give me the same kind of meekness that You gave to Jesus.
In Jesus' name,Amen!
