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:神的选民(2020.02.13)

……所以你们既是神的选民、圣洁蒙爱的人…… —  西3:12

. . . you have been chosen by God who has given you this new kind of life . . .—Colossians 3:12 (TLB)

当代作家刻画出了这个时代的悲观,许多人更是举起双手绝望地说:“人的困境是无解的。”海明威曾经说过:“我也就生活在真空里了,那种孤寂的情形活像电池用完后又没有电流可接的一个无线电真空管。”在《长日入夜行》中,尤金·奥尼尔就是当代哲学态度的典型代表。他说:“生活的唯一意义就是死亡。”我却要对已经过世的海明威和奥尼尔说, “生的意义远高过死。”生活的意义远高过没插电的无线电真空管。耶稣教导我们做人的尊严和重要性。上帝把我们放在地球上是有特殊的目的的,那就是与神相交并荣耀神。

Modern writers depict the pessimism of our time and many of them throw up their hands in despair and say, “There is no answer to man’s dilemma.” Hemingway once said, “I live in a vacuum that is as lonely as a radio tube when the batteries are dead, and there is no current to plug into.” Eugene O’Neill in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” typifies the philosophical attitude of our day. He says, “Life’s only meaning is death.” I say to Hemingway and to O’Neill, who have already gone on, “There is more to life than death.” There is more to life than a radio tube that needs a place to plug into. Jesus taught us the dignity and importance of being a person. God put us on this earth for a purpose, and our purpose is fellowship with God and to glorify God.

今日祷告:
慈爱的天父,你对我的爱超越了我对生活的绝望,是你给了我迫切寻求的意义。

Prayer for the day: Loving Father, Your love for me transcends the hopelessness of this life and gives me the purpose I so desperately need.
